View into skylight on coastal plain, Kilauea Volcano, Hawai`i
Photograph by J. Kauahikaua on May 21, 1998
Lava cascades down a steep slope within a lava tube. The visible part of the cascade is about 2 m high; the entire cascade is about three times as high (entire cascade is hidden from view by the roof of the tube). This photograph was taken through a skylight on the coastal plain of Kilauea about 12 hours after the end of an eruptive pause.
