Satellites watch world’s largest volcano erupt in Hawaii (photos)

The world’s largest active volcano has erupted after being quiet for 38 years.

Hawaii’s Mauna Loa erupted on Sunday (Nov. 27) at 11:30 p.m. local time (Nov. 28 at 4:30 a.m. EST or 0930 GMT), releasing a large plume of ash and toxic gasses along with multiple lava flows. So far, the lava flows are contained within the volcano’s summit and do not pose a threat to surrounding communities, according to a statement (opens in new tab) released by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and Hawaii Volcano Observatory.
