Detailed Description

This video was recorded by a webcam on the northwest rim of Kīlauea caldera, and shows the active lava lake in Halema‘uma‘u. The lava flows from west to east (right to left in this image) and plunges down a cascade into a smaller pit, where the lava is highly agitated. USGS video by M. Patrick.
