I totally agree we need to be very careful and more accurate with this photo description and certainly need to take out the word 'eruption'. The fact is I don't know what this event really is. It is an unknown earth based "Horizon Event" not caused by any celestial object. Something like a title such as "Lunar Rainbow and Hawaii Island Event" would be more accurate at this point. It was not an "eruption" as the Volcano observatory folk would know about it first but in my opionon it could have been one of two things: 1. The 20 mile lava tube, breaking surface at some point along the way to the ocean and exposing the plum cloud of smoke to the light of the glowing lava for 5 to 10 minutes before it sealed itself up again, or 2. military flares being tested on the Big Island.

Wally, I love your photos but there is no way that is a volcanic eruption. I'm not sure what you caught there but I have to agree with Rob.

in all the years that I have lived in Hawaii and the countless nights I have been at the summit I have never seen an eruption plume like that in the photo. there are no lava fountains happening now or in January when this photo was taken. Pu'u O'o does not erupt like that, Hale Mau mau is a glow from a 300 meter deep pit, I'm not sure this photo is actually correct
