Cool incandescent parabolic arcs from ejecta at Waikupanaha ocean entry


Left. Incandescent parabolic arcs trace the path of ejecta cast out during explosions at the Waikupanaha ocean entry early Wednesday morning. This was a relatively small explosion, reaching a few tens of meters height, while the largest explosions this morning approached 70 meters in height. At the bottom of the photograph is the rim of the littoral cone built up by explosion deposits.Right. The incandescent arcs in this photograph are partially obscured by the persistent steam plume emanating from the ocean entry.
