Kīlauea Volcano — Fissure 17 Oozing Lava

Aerial view of a fissure with oozing lava coming from it.

Detailed Description

The Fissure 17 flow front has slowed substantially with only small amounts of pasty "toothpaste" lava oozing out from the flow front. However lava continues to be erupted from the active fissure. This lava appears to be accumulating within the flow and has widened the flow margins slightly.
