The Moon and Jupiter sets over the rim of the Haleakala Crater, as seen from inside of this massive shield volcano that forms more than 75% of the Hawaiian Island of Maui. The white plants on the ground are the rare Haleakala Silversword, a plant of sunflower family which is only found on the island of Maui at an elevation of 2,100 to 3,000 m of the Haleakala environment.
