Spattering is common in Kīlauea Volcano's summit lava lake, and is often focused along the south lake margin. But occasionally, as happened today, numerous spattering sites can appear in the north part of the lake. Unfortunately, northern areas of spattering can rarely be seen from the Jaggar Museum Overlook in Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, especially when the lava lake level is as low as it was today.
