No activity was observed on the Peace Day flow on today's overflight, meaning that the Kahauale‘a 2 flow is now the sole active flow. The Kahauale‘a 2 flow today had reached 6.4 km (4.0 miles) northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, and was burning vegetation around the forest boundary.

Very few surface flows have been observed in Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater over the past month, but the crater today was far from quiet. The spatter cone shown here, in the northern portion of the crater, was producing a loud, continuous jetting sound resulting from gas being forced through a tiny opening at the peak.
