Clear skies on Kīlauea

Clear skies on Kīlauea Volcano...

Detailed Description

Today, Halema‘uma‘u lava lake at the summit of Kīlauea volcano had clear views with four spattering sites visible. Through the gas plume, the southern Overlook Crater wall had a visible scar (lighter color wall rock) from the rock fall on January 19 which triggered an explosive event. There was also another, smaller scar on the northeastern (left) lake wall, from two tiny rock falls on January 24.
