Blue flames of methane gas erupt through cracks in a footpath.
Lava flowing from the volcano recently reached the ocean, causing a risky lava-haze phenomena known as ' laze' that sends acid- and glass-laced steam shooting into the air, creating yet another hazard for those downwind of the lava's ocean entry point.
Additionally, astronauts on the International Space Station can see the eruption and have sent photos of it to the U. S. Geological Survey and emergency responders, NASA said.

According to the Associated Press, the blue flames appeared after the volcano produced methane, which happens when hot lava burns plants and trees. And once ignited, it produces a blue flame, the USGS said.
Even on the Big Island, home of Kilauea, Ige says "the one area that people need to avoid is lower Puna where the eruption is ongoing".
With one highway severed and another one threatened, officials continue to be frank about the possibility of lava flows isolating residents in lower Puna. Crews worked into the night to cap the 11th and final well at the Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) plant, which provides about 25 percent of the Big Island's power. These blasts can toss blocks several feet away, said Wendy Stovall, also a scientist at the Geological Survey.
No, the Mount Kilauea volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii is not affecting weather in Chicago.

After having his mugshots and fingerprints taken, he was escorted out in handcuffs and driven to court in the back of a smart SUV. As part of a bail package negotiated in advance, he will put up $1 million in cash and will agree to wear a monitoring device.
The sheer force of the lava bomb was what Darryl Clinton remembered feeling first, more powerful than any waves he had ever encountered in the ocean surrounding Hawaii.
Authorities also were monitoring hazards from noxious clouds of acid fumes, steam and fine glass-like particles - called laze - emitted when lava flows pour into the ocean on the island's southern end.
Mercifully, the lava flow stopped at a ridge near the PGV plant, but as the events of the past two weeks have shown, Mount Kilauea is in an extremely volatile state.
There are four fissures bursting with lava in evacuated Leilani Estates.

A spike in gas levels could prompt a mass evacuation, said Hawaii County Civil Defense Administrator Talmadge Magno.
At least 22 lava fissures have opened in lower Puna, Hawaii, since a May 4 natural disaster near the Kilauea volcano.
"It hit him on the shin and shattered everything there down on his leg", County of Hawaii government spokeswoman Janet Snyder said.
