Eruption of Kilauea Volcano March 6/2011

If you haven't yet seen the fantastic video footage of the newest eruption of Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii I found some footage on YouTube to share.

According to an article on Big Island Video News, "volcanographer" Mick Kalber, was quick thinking enough to take a video of the eruption during a helicopter fly over, just before it was designated as a no fly zone.
Apparently between the Pu'u O'o Craters and the Napau Crater there are two eruptions (fissure and summit) happening at the same time.  
For me, it is an overwhelming experience to witness Mother Nature in her rawest state and it has given me a renewed respect for our planet.

  1. Even though Mount Kilauea volcano has become one of the most popular tourist attractions in this part of the world today, it is still considered to be the most dangerous volcano in the United States by the experts. The notoriety of being the most dangerous that this volcano has earned can be attributed to the widespread destruction that it has caused over the period of time.
