    Default "People are golfing in Hawaii while the Kilauea volcano erupts...

    ...and the photos are nuts"

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.48e3fe51efa8

    In case you haven’t read the news, turned on the TV or looked at Twitter, a huge volcano, the Kilauea, is erupting on the island of Hawaii, one of the state’s eight islands.
    Some people are pretty concerned about it. Flows of molten lava consume and burn everything in their paths, including homes and cars. The fumes released by the volcano, sulfur dioxide, pose immediate and severe health risks. They can cause choking and impede breathing.
    But there are some folks on the island seemingly undeterred by Kilauea’s eruption. They’re playing golf. Or climbing trees on golf courses to get a better view of the plumes of smoke from fissures in the Earth’s surface.
    Getty photojournalist Mario Tama got a tip from a local source Wednesday early afternoon that the volcanic crater at Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park was spewing more ash into the air than other hot spots on the island.
    Tama rushed to the park, then drove around to the nearby Volcano Golf and Country Club for a clearer view of plume.


    He ran back to his rental car and uploaded the photos to the Getty wire, then ran back out to the course to keep shooting. When the golf photos — he only took a few of them — came across his laptop screen, he thought they were neat photos, but never imagined they’d become so jaw-droppingly popular.
    Take a look yourself:

    I wonder - look at this update:

    "Ballistic blocks" shot from Kilauea's Halemaumau crater Wednesday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, which says it is the first time such an event has been seen at the Hawaiian volcano in nearly a century.
    "This morning dense ballistic blocks up to 60 cm (2 feet) across were found in the parking lot a few hundred yards from Halemaumau," USGS wrote in an advisory on Wednesday. "These reflect the most energetic explosions yet observed and could reflect the onset of steam-driven explosive activity."
    "Further observations are necessary to asses this interpretation. Additional such explosions are expected and could be more powerful," it cautioned.

    I'd be as far away from that as I could get. Like where I am - Michigan. Sad, but this is no laughing - or golfing - matter.

    I said this a while ago in some other thread, but one of my favorite pics of Mrs Mo was when we were standing in the Kilauea caldera/crater. That was in 1999, and back then, it was just this big expanse of dirt.

    We wanted to get to the center of it, but were worried about where we were actually allowed to walk. But we saw a group of 4 people in front us, so we figured, "If they're allowed here, so are we." So, we kept following them until we were almost at the middle. Finally we got close enough to see that their clothing said "US Geological Survey" - then we stopped right in our tracks and walked back, hoping that nobody would yell at us.

    Check this image below - beautiful and disturbing at the same time. I also read that a guy was seriously injured when lava spatter flying through the air landed on his leg while he was sitting on his porch.
