Detailed Description

Overnight view (at about 11:45 PM) from Bryson's quarry looking uprift past Halekamahina to fissure 8 (glow behind the hill). Bright spots show incandescent lava, with the brightest areas as part of the lava channel. A blockage in the channel produced overflows that can be seen as spotty bright areas. The lava flows in the foreground are near the base of the quarry cinder pit.
