After about 10 minutes since the start of the new lava flow, we're surprised to see a giant lava bubble appear in the summit crater and explode with a strong detonating sound, ejecting meter-sized lava fragments symmetrically in all directions. This bubble probably explains why just before the effusion rate increased: as it rose the final distance through the upper conduit, it pushed the magma column out of the effusive vent.
