I like how the steam rising from the vent just blends in with the clouds.

Apparently it's now glowing from the crater via a lava lake. You can't really see the lava (it's actually about 300 ft below the crater floor, and the NPS isn't letting visitors get anywhere near it), but the glow seems to tunnel through the steam column.

Halemaumau lava lake bubbling up?
