Detailed Description

This photo, looking west, shows the current flows that have erupted on the east side of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō cone. Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō cone is the large fume source in the upper left portion of the photograph, and the current flows are sourced from a fissure extending down its upper east flank. In the left-center of the photograph, the bright patch of lava is active pahoehoe. In the right-center of the photograph is a partially buried cone, Pu‘u Halulu, from a much earlier episode of the current eruption. Immediately above Halulu, the dark flow is an ‘A‘ā flow that became active this morning.
