This orthorectified image of eastern Hawaii includes Cape Kumukahi, the easternmost point of the island chain. The cape lies at the end of the east rift zone of the slopes of Kilauea and has been threatened several times by eruptions.

Moving westward along the coast from the cape, the city of Hilo can be seen along the shores of Hilo Bay. It is the largest settlement on the island of Hawaii, and the second largest settlement in the state. The population was 40,759 at the 2000 census.
