The Halema‘uma‘u crater at Kīlauea summit continues to slowly fill with lava

Detailed Description

The Halema‘uma‘u crater at Kīlauea summit continues to slowly fill with lava from the ongoing eruption. As the lava lake rises, it gradually drowns more of the northern fissure. The western fissure activity continues to weaken, and field crews are reporting that only rare intermittent spattering is visible. USGS photo taken on December 25 by F. Trusdell.
