Kahauale‘a flow from Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō advancing northeast very slowly...

Detailed Description

The two active flows (Kahauale‘a and Peace Day) are both fed from vents high on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō cone. This view (looking southwest) shows Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater. In the foreground, a lava pond and small spots of orange glow mark the location of the vent for the Kahauale‘a flow. Near the north rim of the crater (right) a steep spatter cone (see other photo from today) was producing loud gas jetting sounds.
