A United States Geological Survey webcam was in the right place at the right time over the weekend as it caught a glimpse of a small (yet remarkable) explosion in Hawaii's Halema'uma'u Crater.

A collapsing section of the crater wall fell into a lava lake, causing "a small explosion of spatter and a robust particle-laden plume". Thankfully, nobody was harmed by the event. Click here for more information and photos from the USGS.
