This is What Hawaii’s Volcano Eruption Looks Like From Space

The ongoing eruption of the Kilauea volcano on the big island of Hawaii has led to tens of thousands of evacuations and the destruction of tens of homes. And the eruption has grown to such a scale that it can now be easily seen from the International Space Station.

NASA astronaut A.J. (Drew) Feustel has shared a photo captured from the space station that shows what the island looks like from space.

Astronaut Ricky Arnold also shared photos of the growing plumes.

Both Feustel and Arnold coincidentally flew to the ISS under the callsign “Hawaii” back in March, weeks before the Kilauea volcano’s East Rift Zone started spewing lava fountains, lava flows, and volcanic gas.
