Clear evening views of Halema‘uma‘u's lava lake...

Detailed Description

Clear weather provided good views of the lava lake at Kīlauea Volcano's summit. The activity this evening was typical for the lava lake, with variable spattering along the lake margins. Spattering shown here was in the southeast part of the lake, which is the most common site for spattering. This photo was taken by USGS scientists from the rim of Halema‘uma‘u crater, an area that remains closed to the public due to ongoing volcanic hazards.
