Volcano National Park weather often is cloudy and misty. This morning woke up at 1am and it was cloudy. Woke up at 3am, still cloudy. Woke up at 4:45am and it was super clear with a million stars in the sky. Grabbed all the camera gear and drove over to Jaggar Museum. Sometimes I think I am a bit of a nut for waking up so early for photography but there were 10 other nuts at Jaggar Museum at 5am , LOL. Here's some pictures with stars and a lava plume. The last picture is at 7am before sunrise with a bunch of park visitors waiting for the sun.
