Title: Fissure Eruption Between Pu'u 'O 'o and Napau Crater
Video clip shot from the air looking SW at the fissure eruption between Pu'u 'O 'o and Napau Crater. The fissure segment in the tephra in the foreground opened seconds earlier, and only about 10 minutes after the eruption as a whole started. The cracks through the tephra are in the process of opening, though this can't be picked out at this distance.
