Mauna Ulu fissureAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
During the morning of May 24, 1969 this and other volcanic fissures formed a spewing wall of molten lava over a mile long in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii. The event was the beginning of the Mauna Ulu eruption that lasted five years, and destroyed roads, grasslands and cultural sites in the park as the lava flowed to the sea.
