USGS scientists hiked to the summit of Mauna Loa, where they checked on HVO's monitoring instruments and realigned an antenna that allows webcam images of the volcano's summit caldera (shown in this panoramic image) to be posted on the HVO website. Unfortunately, the "Moku‘āweoweo Caldera Multi-Frame" webcam could not be repaired during this summit trek, but the issue with the camera was identified and can now be resolved as soon as possible.
