Aerial view looking west across floor of Pu`u `O`o's crater. Three spatter cones can be seen. East Pond Vent is in lower left, a remarkable, vertically walled chimney is in the center, and the Beehive cone is partly obscured by fume in background. Shiny crust at Beehive is actively moving lava. Each cone is 7-10 meters high.
