Hawaii Volcano Creating Blue Flames From Burning Methane

posted by AJ - 

As Hawaii's Kilauea's volcano continues to erupt, blue flames are being created from burning methane, as seen in this video released by the U.S. Geological Survey. The flames  were shown coming from cracks in the pavement in the Leilani Estates  neighborhood, where the volcano has been pushing out lava for the past  three weeks. The methane is produced when hot lava buries and burns  plants and trees. It can then seep through cracks and cause explosions  when it's ignited underground.
