Detailed Description

Aerial view looking across southern part of Puka Nui (lower right) to filled West Gap Pit with two spatter cones (upper center). Reddish edifice in lower left is 55 cone, its crater filled with black lava flow. Crater of Pu`u `O`o is just right of West Gap Pit. Note dark flows that came from at least two sources: one flow from West Gap Pit cascaded into Puka Nui, and another was erupted in Puka Nui itself. Both flows are several weeks old but still look fresh.
