Detailed Description

A view of the summit lava lake at dusk. The lava lake is contained within a crater informally called the "Overlook" crater, and this crater is set within the larger Halema‘uma‘u Crater. The lava lake is about 50 m (160 ft) below the rim of the Overlook crater. In the southeast portion of the lake, a persistent spattering source ejects spatter more than halfway up the Overlook crater walls.
