Forget your surfboard — these Hawaiian waves are made of magma.
Videographer Mick Kalber was flying over Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano on Friday when he captured pictures of a large, wave-like outbreak of lava northeast of Pu’u ‘O’o vent.
Kalber has been documenting lava at Kilauea for 30 years, and this was the first time he’s seen such activity in the middle of a flow field.
“The outbreak is about a quarter-mile long, and 75-80 yards wide, the crust repeatedly cracking, oozing lava, and subducting the plates nearby in a remarkable display,” Kalber writes on his Facebook page.
After reviewing the video, Janet Babb, a geologist and public information officer at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, said the flow was from a short-lived breakout. “Similar breakouts have been happening for months in this general area,” she said.
“It does not represent new activity or a significant change in the eruption,” Babb wrote in an email to The Huffington Post.
Nope, it’s just another day on Hawaii’s Big Island.
Kilauea is one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Since 1952, there have been 34 eruptions. Eruptive activity has been continuous along the east rift zone since 1983.
Last year, a slow-moving lava flow from Kilauea threatened the rural town of Pahoa.
