Halema‘uma‘u lava lake remains active

Halema‘uma‘u lava lake remains active...

Detailed Description

Last Saturday, March 19, marked the 8-year anniversary of the start of Kīlauea's ongoing summit eruption in Halema‘uma‘u Crater. Halema‘uma‘u spans much of the width of this photo, and the small inner crater in the foreground is the Overlook crater, which contains the active lava lake. The gas plume at this time was originating from a spattering area in the southern portion of the lake, obscured by the crater wall from this angle.
