Halemaʻumaʻu, Kīlauea, Hawaii, photographed in December 2016. This time-lapse sequence of a typical lava lake activity within Halemaʻumaʻu Crater, at 50× speed, illustrates the motion of the lava lake surface. Lava upwells in the northern portion of the lake (left side of image), with most of the lake surface flowing towards the south (right side). Spattering is active within a small grotto at the southeast margin of the lake.
