The caldera of the active Kilauea volcano at Big Island's Volcano National Park seen at night. Kilauea crater is sacred to Hawaiian people as it's considered to be the home of goddess Pele. Watching the volcano glow at night from Jaggar Museum is mesmerizing especially with a clear sky full of stars overhead.
