On the Cover: The cover photo was taken from a boat in the early morning hours of December 12, 2011, soon after Kilauea erupted again after an almost 10-month hiatus. Lava began streaming into the ocean two days before this photo was taken. Trying to take a good shot from a small boat, rocking and rolling on high seas close to scorching lava, was a dangerous but rewarding experience for photographer Ilya Raskin of Rutgers University.
