Lava shot 20m into the air from the Pu'u O'o crater on Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii
A NEW vent has opened at one of the world's most active volcanoes, sending lava shooting up to 20 metres high.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said the fissure eruption was spotted shortly after the floor at the Pu'u O'o crater collapsed around 5pm local time on Saturday. It occurred along the middle of Kilauea's east rift zone, about 3.2 kilometres west of Pu'u O'o.

"As a volcanologist, this is what we do. These are the moments we wait for," volcanologist Janet Babb told KHON2.

"It is exciting to see an eruption begin particularly if you can see it from the very start."

Kilauea has been in constant eruption since January 3, 1983.

At the summit, lava receded rapidly late on Saturday but seemed to slow today. There were also about 150 small earthquakes were recorded within Kilauea in the past 24 hours.
