Haunting Timelapse Shows Hawaii’s Glowing Kilauea Volcano From Above

Normally, the wide-angle camera at the Gemini North telescope is used to monitor atmospheric conditions, but officials at the high-altitude observatory recently used it to create this stunning, 45-second-long timelapse.

The vantage point is from Mauna Kea, a dormant Big Island volcano that’s 13,800 feet (4,200 meters) high, and located 40 miles (64 kilometers) from Mount Kilauea. The infrared filter was removed from the camera, giving the volcanic glow its whitish-blue hue, rather than the expected red glow from the lava.
