High view of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō

High view of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater...

Detailed Description

Lava flows have spilled from Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater over the past few weeks. One flow went out the southern end of the crater and traveled a short distance downslope to the southeast before stopping. The other flow, coming directly from the small lava lake on the northeast edge of the crater floor, went down the north flank of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō and reached to the base of the cone. This flow is still active and its front has gone about 1.4 km (0.9 miles).
