Detailed Description

This video shows activity in the summit lava lake in Halema‘uma‘u Crater. Spattering like this is common in the lake, and this video shows the view from the rim of Halema‘uma‘u (closed to the public due to volcanic hazards). This spattering has recently been visible from the Jaggar Overlook inside Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park (open to the public).
