No major changes in the lava lake at Halema‘uma‘u Crater...

Detailed Description

This wide view shows the lava lake active within the Overlook crater, which is set within the larger Halema‘uma‘u Crater. There have been no major changes in the lake in recent weeks. This morning the lava lake was roughly 60 meters (200 feet) below the rim of the Overlook crater. The dark region surrounding the Overlook crater is lava that spilled out onto the floor of Halema‘uma‘u Crater in April and May of this year, when the lake level was much higher.
