(the most amazing thing I’ve seen in so long)
Pele’s hair from the lava lake in Halema’uma’u crater, in the caldera of Kīlauea in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, on May 3, 2012. Pele’s Hair is the name given to volcanic glass threads or fibers formed when small particles of molten material are thrown into the air and spun out by the wind into long hair-like strands. Pele’s hair covers much of the ground in the area immediately downwind of the vent at Halema’uma’u crater. Accumulations about one meter wide are found on the windward sides of the curbs in the Halema’uma’u parking lot. (Matthew Patrick/USGS) #
