Hawaii volcano eruption: Incredible images of Kilauea erupting seen from SPACE

"A robust plume of steam and volcanic gas, occasionally mixed with ash, has risen from the Overlook crater within Halemaumau", the Hawaii Volcano Observatory said.

This is the astronaut's-eye view of the Kilauea volcano eruption in Hawaii. Residents in both neighborhoods were ordered to evacuate in early May when fissures first began to appear, emitting lava and toxic gases.

Government officials also said that fissure No. 17, the most voluminous at about a 1,000-feet long, which claimed at least one structure, was still active on Monday, but no homes or roads were impacted.

Magma is draining out of the volcano's sinking lava pool and flowing underground tens of miles eastward before bursting to the surface on Kilauea's eastern flank in the lower Puna area.

The Big Island tourism board estimates $5 million worth of cancellations from May through July.

Kilauea volcano is near-constantly erupting from vents either on its summit (caldera) or on the rift zones.

Since May 3 when Kilauea began erupting, 19 lava-spewing fissures have opened about 25 miles from its summit, including one that tore through countryside close to houses.

The National Weather Service has warned residents of "light ashfall" throughout the day in the island's southernmost district after a burst of volcanic emissions.

While the United States Geological Survey is warning about the possibility of more explosive activity, NASA astronaut Drew Feustel got a safe but spectacular view of the volcano from the International Space Station.

Kilauea has been in a state of almost constant eruption for 35 years. Now, newly opened fissures are bubbling with lava nearly daily, and Hawaii County Civil Defense has warned sightseers to stay away for safety's sake. Since there was no lava, it's not considered an active fissure.

Residents from coastal communities fear the lava flow could block a dirt road, highway 137, that is their only way out after the main highway 130 was closed due to steaming cracks.
