High summit lava lake close to the rim...

Detailed Description

The slowly rising lava lake at Kīlauea's summit was very close to the rim of the Overlook crater, and floor of Halema‘uma‘u Crater. This afternoon the lake was roughly 6 m (20 feet) from the rim. This photo was taken from the Jaggar Museum overlook, which had superb views tonight.
