Mount Kilauea is likely the most observed volcano on Earth at the moment. The eruption has even been photographed from space. Astronaut Ricky Arnold captured a pre-dawn photo from the International Space Station as it passed over the Hawaiian Islands before sunrise recently. The orange lava fountain is easily visible. Almost like a nightly weather report, US Military News provides current updates and warnings on Mount Kilauea. Lava from the eruption has now affected over 6000 acres and hundreds of homes and other structures have been destroyed.
