Image Caption: This handheld, visible wavelength (red-green-blue) digital camera image of a steam and ash plume rising from Hale Ma'uma'u Crater on Kilauea Volcano, Hawai'i was taken by a crew member on the International Space Station (ISS) on May 13, 2018 using a Nikon D5 camera and an 1600 mm lens. The image was taken during the 2018 Kilauea Volcano Lower East Rift Zone eruptive activity. Crew members on the ISS were requested to take images throughout the eruption by the JSC Earth Sciences and Remote Sensing (ESRS) Unit. Imagery collected by handheld cameras was then georeferenced by the ESRS for delivery to end users (the United States Geological Survey and NASA Earth Sciences Disasters Program).
