After a two-month hiatus, Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes in the world, started erupting again on Sunday, exhibiting luminous lava in a Big Island national park that is safely away from people and buildings.

According to the Hawaii Volcano Observatory, the Kilauea summit eruption was seen in the late afternoon.

Here is a tweet about the “Kīlauea began erupting this afternoon, serving as a solemn reminder of the sacredness ingrained in this landscape. The privilege to witness the creative forces of a new eruption comes with a responsibility to approach this place with reverence.”

Volcanic smog will be caused downwind of Kilauea by gases released by the eruption. The observatory advised those living close to the park to steer clear of volcanic particles released into the atmosphere by the eruption.

As scientists assessed the eruption and related risks, the volcano’s alert level was elevated to warning status, and the aviation color code changed to red.

Kilauea erupted for several weeks without endangering any populated areas or structures, displaying fountains of red lava. People went to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island because it provided secure views of the lava.

The second-largest volcano in Hawaii, Kilauea, erupted from September 2021 until late December. More than 700 homes were destroyed during the 2018 Kilauea eruption.
