A view from Bryson’s quarry on the Big Island around 11:45 p.m. Tuesday looking uprift past Halekamahina, an older ash cone, to fissure No. 8, which is creating the glow behind the cone. Bright areas indicate incandescent lava, with the brightest areas showing the trace of the lava channel.

Much of the lava from Kilauea volcano’s lower East Rift Zone has changed course on the lower end of the flow, according to Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.
