A lava pond has been active in this pit for over a year, and the time-lapse camera tracks changes in the pond activity.
An aerial view of Halemaumau shows a normal spattering range at the south lake margin. New golden-brown spatter covers previous streaks of overflow, which are darker. The plume of smoke was light at the time of the recent spatter, allowing a view of the southern wall, which recently experienced two more collapses and exposed the lighter rock beneath.
