Kīlauea Summit Overflight - May 10, 2022

Detailed Description

A view of the former Jaggar Museum and Hawaiian Volcano Observatory buildings, located on the northwest rim of Halema‘uma‘u at the summit of Kīlauea within Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. The buildings were closed in 2018 due to damage to the buildings during the Kīlauea summit collapse events of that year. Currently, the Uēkahuna overlook at this locality is open to visitors, as is the Kīlauea overlook, the parking lot of which is shown in the upper right of the photo.
