This Quicktime movie shows spattering at the margin of the summit lava lake in Halema‘uma‘u Crater. Spattering has been common at the lake, and when it occurs is easily visible from the public viewing area at Jaggar Museum. This video shows a closer view from the rim of Halema‘uma‘u, which is closed to the public due to volcanic hazards.
