Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō looms in the background in this photo taken from about 4 km (2.5 miles) away. The source of the Kahauale‘a 2 flow—a spatter cone at the northeast edge of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō's crater floor—forms the knuckle-like bump just above the center of the photo. The Kahauale‘a 2 lava tube is marked by the fuming areas that extend to the right down the flank of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō.
