# Flying high over Halemaumau, Waikupanaha bench

## Detailed Description

Flying at about the elevation of the plume top, this video shows a number of aspects of the ongoing activity at Halemaumau Crater. The mostly whitish plume rises to an elevation of about 5,500 feet and blows first to the southwest but apparently spreads to the west over the Kau Desert. Mauna Loa rises above the clouds in the background. In addition, the ash deposited beneath the plume can be seen as a lighter ground color. The lighter colored ash can also be seen on Halemauma`u Crater floor adjacent to the vent.
