The Kīlauea summit eruption within Halema‘uma‘u crater continues. As of this afternoon, December 24, the lava lake continues to rise and is covering the lower section of the main northern fissure (center). The western fissure (left) is weakly spattering and a small skylight suggests that the narrow lava channel may have tubed over and is entering into the lava lake out of sight. USGS photo taken by H.
