A woman holds her camera up to capture the Halema’uma’u Crater at dusk last night from the Jaggar Museum overlook balcony. I stitched together the USGS/HVO Jaggar cam’s three images. Clicking on this link will take you to the cam to see what’s happening there right now.

Hawai’i Volcano Observatory’s update this morning reported , “ The glow, visible from the Jaggar Museum Overlook, was the brightest since January 19, 2010.

Deformation graphs are showing a holding pattern for the magma pressure uder the volcano. This is good news for those wanting to view lava activity after dark at either Halema’uma’u Crater in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park or out at the Hawaii County lava viewing area at the end of highway 130 near Kalapana. (Bring binoculars if possible)
