Good views of the lava lake in Halema‘uma‘u Crater...

Detailed Description

Thin fume allowed good views of the lava lake in the Overlook crater, which is set within Halema‘uma‘u Crater at the summit of Kīlauea. The lake is roughly 150 meters (490 ft) wide by 200 meters (700 ft) long. Although spattering is commonly present along the margin of the lake, during our overflight no spattering was occurring.
