This Quicktime movie shows a time-lapse sequence of the lava lake captured by a thermal camera on the rim of Halema‘uma‘u crater. The sequence is shown at a speed of about 30 times actual. By viewing the sequence at this speed, spotting the upwelling area in the lake is easier than in a still photograph.
