Spectacular new images released show Hawaii's Kilauea volcano spewing hot lava.

They show a summit vent lava lake at Halema Ľuma Ľu Crater on Kilauea, which first began erupting last March.

Since then the United States Geological Survey has continued to observe and map the flow of the lava as it spews over the lake's boundary and streams just over a mile down to the ocean.

Check out these amazing pics above now!
