Detailed Description

A wide view from the summit, looking east. Halema‘uma‘u Crater occupies the foreground, with the lava lake in the Overlook crater. At the skyline, Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō can be seen. The June 27th lava flow is fed from a vent on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, with lava traveling through a lava tube to the flow front. The position of the flow front is marked by a smoke plume as the lava at the front burns vegetation.
