Halemaumau is a 2500-ft by 2900-ft diameter pit crater located within the Kilauea caldera (see www.gigapan.org/gigapans/48522/) in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Since 2008, it has been emitting a sulfur dioxide plume which sometimes glows red at night. The illumination comes from a molten lava lake that occasionally breaks through the crater floor 270 ft below the rim of Halemaumau.
