Detailed Description

In Kīlauea Volcano's lower East Rift Zone, the UAS team (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) frequently works into the overnight hours, sending out aircraft (also referred to as drones) that hover over the lava channel to collect data used to calculate lava velocity. The team also looks for significant channel overflows. The bright white area is the moon obscured by clouds.
