Kīlauea Lava Flow, Hawaii

Photograph by Norberto Villanueva, My Shot

Red-hot lava snakes across Kalapana, Hawaii, pouring from Kīlauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes. With lava flowing at an average rate of 800 to 1,300 gallons per second from vents on the east rift zone of the volcano, more than 500 acres of new land have been added to the island of Hawaii since Kīlauea's eruption began on January 3, 1983.
