Throwback Thursday! “Living in Pele’s Paradise Part One:” the Kīlauea Iki Eruption of 1959
Fifty-four years ago, in November 1959, the spectacular fountaining eruption from Kīlauea Iki began, and stopped, and began again. And stopped, some 17 times for the next five weeks before the magma shifted towards Kāpoho. Enjoy this informative, 16-minute video “Living in Pele’s Paradise” by graduate student Jess Sable. You might recognize a few familiar faces!
For those of you interested in hiking Kīlauea Iki, be sure to pick up a copy of the Kīlauea Iki Trail Guide, available for a mere $2 in the Hawai‘i Pacific Parks Association bookstores in Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park.
We will post Part II of Living in Pele’s Paradise tomorrow for “Flashback Friday.” :)
