    Lava is spewing up to 80 feet high from one of the world's most active volcanoes.

    The Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii's Big Island is putting on quite a power and light show.  Experts say the Pu'u o'o  crater on the eastern side of the volcano collapsed, unleashing a torrent of steam and lava.

    Geologists say there are indications that there could be more eruptions. The Kilauea has been consistently erupting since 1983.

    The U.S. Geological Survey has a webcam of the volcano.
