The plume resulting from an explosive eruption at the summit of the Kilauea volcano early on May 17 was picked up some 40 miles away by a camera at the Gemini Observatory in Mauna Kea, Hawaii. The plume rose to 30,000 feet above the crater, the US Geological Survey reported. Volcanic gas emissions at the summit remained high, the USGS said. In the timelapse video, recorded by the Gemini Observatory, shows the night of May 16-17. Flashes of lightning are seen, before the plume appears at around 39 seconds. https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/10156510779509874/ Story via Storyful
