An impressive steam plume is rising from Kamokuna sea entry at Kilauea volcano, Hawai'i.
The lava erupts to the surface at the volcano's eastern rift zone at the Pu'u O'o vent and flows for many miles through an underground lava tube until it reaches the coast. 
The lava entry shown here has been going on since July 2016 and has been enlarging the Island of Hawai'i by building a fragile delta of new land. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

Colima volcano in Mexico during an intense eruptive phase: while several lava flows descend the southern and western flanks, fed by the summit lava dome, a pyroclastic flow caused by collapsing lava from one of the flows produces a dense ash cloud that rises approx. 2 km.
A meteorite falls from the sky above the scene. (Photo: Hernando Rivera)

Fumarolic deposits (sufur and other minerals) and gasses escaping the ground around the crater of La Fossa volcano (background) on Vulcano Island, the southernmost of the Eolian Islands north of Sicily.
