Detailed Description

A large breakout from the lava tube on the north side of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō yesterday (August 27) formed a large channelized flow, but it did not last long. The activity died in the evening, the same day, and traveled only about 500 m (about 550 yards). The recent flow is the lighter colored lava mostly left of center in the photograph, with its most distant tip approaching lower right. The photograph looks south toward Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō.
