Detailed Description

Breakouts persist northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, with scattered activity along the north margin of the flow field at the forest boundary. One narrow lobe of lava has pushed through forest over the past few weeks, and is 7.6 km (4.7 miles) northeast of the vent on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō. This photo looks southwest, and the front of the narrow lobe is in the foreground, with Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō near the top of the photo. The breakouts active at the forest boundary along the northern flow margin can be seen by their smoke plumes along the right side of the photo.
