    What do you expect from a very active volcano? It would be boring just to see hot lava to just seep through on the ocean floor like we see from deep water photos taken by deep ocean floor robotic mini-subs. LOL!

    I would be more interested to watch the one side of the mountain as it gets weaken over the years because a mega tsunami would be triggered when it collapse into the ocean.

    First.. this picture is from 1969..second the lava is well over 2000 degress..so any water present is pretty well gone.. you do get smoke from all of the gasses burning such as sulpher dioxide ,hydrogen floride..carbon dioxide..hydrogen oxide..aka water...third ifyou want te see what this volcano is doing.. go to USGS..VOLCANO...HAWAII.. And it will come up to Hawaii Volcano Observtory..they have cameras set up showing the volcano..and films showing some activities such as pouring into the ocean..( there they get steam)

    I know it's nitpicky, but my internet was fine this morning. it was not, in any sense, 'freaked out'. Nor has it ever been non functional when I've read that something has 'broke the internet'.
    In this case, a photo has been circulated that has garnered several comments. Many, I would imagine, are mean spirited, poorly spelled and uninformed. They always are.
    But that's it.
    Hyperbole really doesn't describe the situation, nor is it really that important.

    @Million

    You can't be serious.

    The reason there's no steam is because there's no water present. The foreground is not ocean - it's a lava field.

    That is not a real picture because there would be steam.
