Looking at the latest live footage, it would seem that things are on the wane again. Certainly the eruptive area seems to be much more contracted compared to yesterday at least.

2 min long live cam video capture (speeded up x2) showing the moment when the fissure erupted. No time stamp on that particular MLD feed unfortunately but time of eruption is said to have been around 1.15pm GMT.

There is a time stamp on the video capture, in the very bottom right, it's very faint so you can barely see it, but it's there  Thanks for sharing

Didn't spot that time stamp WW. Blind as a bat!

GeologyHub has a nice analysis up of the current eruption.

I

I find it hard to believe though that the amount of lava being spewed is greater than that of last year's event (at least at the start of it) which to me, was far more impressive in scale.

I think the scale of the eruption is masked by the fact the vents are in the middle of a lava lake of sorts.

On a unrelated note the Chiles-Cerro Negro complex on the Columbia-Ecuador border has been showing increasing signs of probable magmatic activity in recent months. Although an eruption there is by no means imminent(and maybe not even likely), due to the magnitude, location and potential it is well worth keeping an eye on.

Very poor views on the lives cams the last couple of days owing to low cloud and perpetual misty drizzle. The North Atlantic weather.. you just can't beat it.

It’s a bit like Aberdeen (but with volcanoes) according to Richard.

A clearer view on the cams today thankfully and a nice shield building up now around the main lava fountain.

Yes, it has grown significantly in the last couple of days as well as having an impressive lava field:

Will be interesting to see now how long this will last and if it will become the giant  that 'Nar' did.

As of now, the whole spectacle seems to be on the wane. Volcano only really producing smoke now. May fire up again sometime or perhaps more fissures will open up sometime in the future, much like in the early days of 2021 event.

"The world's largest active volcano, Hawaii's Mauna Loa, is erupting for the first time in almost 40 years. ...Mauna Loa last erupted in March and April of 1984, sending lava flows within 5 miles (8km) of the city of Hilo.

The latest eruption began on Sunday night at Moku'āweoweo, the volcano's summit caldera. Calderas are hollows that form beneath the summit at the end of an eruption."

Another eruption - this time Mount Semeru - Java.

"Indonesia's Mount Semeru volcano has erupted, sending ash billowing into the sky and sparking evacuations on the country's main island, Java. Authorities raised the volcano's warning status to the highest level, meaning its activity had escalated. No injuries have been reported but nearly 2,000 people were evacuated from the area around the volcano."

Mount emeru is 8deg S of the equator. Will the ash cloud go N or S? perhaps S-wards as the monsoon seasoon is over.
