At the end of April 2018, the level of the lava lake in the Halemaumau Crater of the active Kilauea Volcano rose dramatically to spill over into the main crater in Volcano National Park on the Big Island in Hawai'i. For days, the lake had waves of lava traveling across its surface in sinuous moving lines of brilliant red and orange. As the waves reverberated against the crater walls, fountains of lava spattered skyward. The glow of the incandescent lava lit the adjacent crater walls in a red glow. This amazing event ended after a large 6.9 earthquake that rocked the eastern side of our Island and the level of the lake plummeted in the course of more than a week until today, it is completely out of sight and is more than 800 feet below the level it reached in late April.
