What is it?! Photo of a 20-meter-high bubble of fire puzzled the Internet.A giant bubble of fire was caught in Hawaii.
At the very end of March 2018, a mysterious photo appeared on Twitter on the United States Geological Survey (United States Geological Survey). It was depicted a giant bubble above the water, consisting, judging by the form, of lava.
The photo would be even more mysterious if it were not accompanied by an explanatory caption. The inscription read something like the following: “The dome fountain, October 10–13, 1969, the eruption of Kilauea volcano. This dome fountain rises in height by about 20 meters. Such symmetrical dome fountains are a rarity. ”
But even despite the fact that the photo was taken in immemorial 1969, the subscribers of the US Geology, Geodesy and Cartography Service were terribly excited - this is evident from hundreds of retweets and thousands of comments. They started asking a lot of questions: why is the dome so round? How did the volcano get into the water? It's water, right? Alas, the reality, as often happens, turned out to be much more banal. The waves that you see in the foreground of the photograph are not even waves at all, but the frozen lava around Kilauea volcano, which, as it turned out, do not feed with sacrifices,let it erupt. That is, there is no particular mystery in this 1969 photograph (except for the incredible luck of the photographer who was at the right time in the right place and who managed to carry his legs in time). And nevertheless she succeeded in what is often beyond the power of modern photographs - to stir up everything that has seen the Internet and make its inhabitants ask questions.
