Detailed Description

There have been no major changes in eruptive activity at Kīlauea summit this evening. Several small channels continue to feed the lava lake within Halema‘uma‘u crater from the western fissure vents. Late afternoon shadows cast over the lava lake exaggerate the incandescence between the plates of crust. USGS photo taken by N. Bennington at approximately 5:00 p.m. HST on December 26.
