Time-lapse movie showing lava erupting from vents on the floor of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater

Time-lapse movie showing lava erupting from vents on the floor of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater. Each frame is a composite of eight images comprising a panorama of the crater that is captured every five minutes. During daylight hours, the camera switches to an IR mode so that eruptive activity is easier to monitor. At night, the camera switches back to normal mode.
