“Kilauea Moonshine” is really something to marvel

Subscriber Brittland Stotts was generous enough to send this photo to share and it’s really something else that forces you to do a double-take. What is this?  Brettland described it best:

I have taken many photos of the ongoing eruptions at Kilauea, but the attached photo is one of my favorites. I took it back in October of 2022, one night before Halloween.
I love it because it shows the stark contrast between the big bright moon shining down on the ancient lava fields to the left of the eruption going on in the caldera, with the little cloud above glowing from the lava and the stars dotting the night sky.
The picture doesn’t really do it justice as it was such an awe-inspiring sight in person.
The feeling you get when you’re up there near one of mother nature’s greatest shows in such a sacred space is a feeling that is hard to put in words, but it’s spiritual to say the least.

Could not have said it better myself!  Mahalo!

Big Mahalo to Brittland Stotts!
