Detailed Description

Breakouts remain active northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, but on today's overflight we observed a decrease in overall activity. In particular, breakouts that had been active closer to Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō on previous days, around Pu‘u Kahauale‘a, were inactive today. The active breakouts began about 4 km (2.5 miles) northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō and reached nearly 8 km (5 miles). This farthest distance has not changed significantly in recent weeks. This photograph looks west along the East Rift Zone, towards Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō and Kīlauea's summit. Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō can be seen near the horizon, on the left side of the image. The farthest active lava today was near the smokey area in the left side of the image. Kīlauea's summit plume can be seen in the distance in the upper right portion of the photograph.
