Kamokuna Lavafalls Oct 3-5

Time-lapse movie showing 2.5 days of lava falls onto the western side of Kamokuna delta on Kīlauea Volcano. The movie starts just before sunset on Monday Oct 2nd, 2017, and ends in the morning of Oct 5th, 2017. The breakout feeding these lava falls is above the delta on the sea cliff, and this activity may be a continuation of a previous breakout on Sept 23. Lava falls occurred repetitively throughout the whole week, thickening the western edge along the sea cliff.
