Per the USGS, this time lapse video was shot over approximately 48 hours last week. The video shows three eruption points inside Pu’u O’o crater. The most dramatic eruption of the three is the fountain-like cone eruption on the left side of the video.

You can take a peek at the composite images “live” from this webcam of Puu Oo. The webcam images are still, but updated every five minutes.
