Young Earth, Ancient Sky

It may be timely to post this image I took from the Kilauea volcano in Hawai'i this summer, as currently, the Historic Town of Pahoa - a beautiful, quaint town where early Hawaiians settled hundreds of years ago - is currently being threatened by a lava flow from Kilauea that would leave the town completely isolated, which would ultimately lead to becoming a ghost town. It's more than an anecdote. People live here.

 

In the image you can see a classic closeup of the Halemaumau crater and a glowing Milky Way above it. Earth and Sky.
