Kīlauea Volcano — Looking Uprift Past Halekamahina

Night time view of Halekamahina

Detailed Description

View from Bryson's quarry around 11:45 p.m. HST last night looking uprift past Halekamahina (an older ash cone) to fissure 8, which is creating the glow behind the cone. Bright areas indicate incandescent lava, with the brightest areas showing the trace of the lava channel. A blockage in the channel produced overflows that are seen as spotty incandescence. Lavaflows in the foreground are near the base of the quarry cinder pit.
