Timelapse captures glow emitting from Kilauea Volcano

- Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano emitted a dramatic glow overnight from May 21-22, as captured in a Gemini Observatory timelapse.

The observatory told Storyful the video shows “the glow from an extensive region of fissures over the course of a single night.”

The volcano began erupting with lava, ash, and toxic gas more than three weeks ago, prompting the forced evacuation of more than 2,000 people.

The volcano on Hawaii's main island has spewed white plumes of acid and extremely fine shards of glass at times.

Molten rock continues to pour into the ocean, creating acidic steam - yet another hazard from the eruption.
