Menlo Park resident Alice Weil has a house on the big island of Hawaii, and her son, Matthew Weil — an M-A grad — flew over to photograph the erupting Mauna Loa volcano.

“He took these shots from an adjacent volcano, Mauna Kea, from 9,000-foot elevation,” she explains.

The eruption is now easing and concentrated within the volcano’s cinder cone. This is Mauna Loa’s first eruption in 38 years.
