A few hours after our initial sortie, we returned to the site late on the evening of August 3. The juice was now in full flow, craters had taken shape along the fissure line, and the floor plan was being reshaped in real time. Rivulets of lava glowed in the diminishing light. In the days following, the show has only gotten bigger and better.
These are scenes from our second assay on the very first day of the eruption.
