20150425 Halemaumau Crater

April 26, 2015

The lava lake at Kilauea Volcano came within 10 feet of overflowing onto the Halemaumau Crater floor Sunday morning. An incredible view of the lake's surface is visible from Uwekahuna Bluff at Jaggar Museum in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park for the first time since the crater opened in 2008.
