Why you don’t want to get too close to the edge…

Just to confirm for our mainland classmates that the eruption on the Big Island is still going:

According to the HVO, a lava delta collapsed at the Waikupanaha ocean entry.  During the collapse, a piece of lava spatter landed about 170 meters/560 feet inland.  You can see a hand-held GPS next to the spatter.

So…maybe getting hit by a rock that big might hurt.  But considering this probably just a little bit HOT when it landed, it just might leave a mark…
