Volcano update

volcano_saturdayThis just in from Steve and Donna O'Meara at the Volcano:

After two days of fog, white-outs, rain and overcast conditions the weather cleared to the delight of visitors to Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii. This 9:20 AM view of visitors watching and the mighty steam plume  was taken by Volcano Researcher, Stephen James O'Meara.

Visible reddish-brown  volcanic particles blasted out in the steam vent plume give it a pinkish color.  If carried by the wind these particles could be deposited miles away. Will the volcano blow again? No one knows for sure.
