Kilauea crater's self-illumination at night

Kilauea Crater, found within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, is among the most active volcanoes on earth and has been erupting constantly since 1983. The crater, during the day, is one of the most picturesque images in the park. At night, however, Kilauea crater takes on an even greater brilliance as the light from the lava within the crater's depth radiates outwards and streaks the sky with a red-orange glow.
