Flows NE of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō & views of the lava lake in Halema‘uma‘u

Flows northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō and views of the lava lake in Halema‘u...

Detailed Description

This photo looks northeast and shows Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater. Recent activity has been focused around a few spatter cones on the crater floor. At the far edge of the crater, a small lava pond has been active and has been the source of flows extending northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō. Those flows are visible at the top-center of the photo. Just below the horizon two small sources of smoke mark where the flow front is burning lichen and moss covering older ‘A‘ā flows.
