This Quicktime movie shows spattering that is typical at the margins of the lava lake
in Halema‘uma‘u crater. The slow migration of the lava
lake surface is normally towards the area of spattering, where the lava sinks back into the magmatic system. Spatter in this clip is being thrown about 5-10 meters (yards) in height. Views like this are fleeting, however, with the thick gas plume
shifting with the winds.
