Here’s a little something to keep you occupied while I try to do All The Things this week. The Big Picture has a spectacular series of photos of the world’s largest lava lake in Nyiragongo Crater in Africa. Enjoy!

Nyragongo lava lake is amazing !! That’s interresting to see each lava lake (Pu’u’o’o in Hawaii or Erta Alé in Ethiopia…) have a quite different activity. I’m wondering why…different temperature, lava chamber localization ?
Here is a simular story from DER SPIEGEL from a few weeks ago:
