Detailed Description

A comparison of photos from before and after the collapses, taken by a time-lapse camera positioned on the northeast rim of Halema`uma`u Crater, show considerable expansion of the vent opening on June 30. The black line in this image shows the shape of the vent rim a few days before the collapses. The vent is now 123 m (404 ft) wide from this perspective, having increased by 23 m (75 ft).
