Lava continues to overflow Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō's eastern rim...

Detailed Description

Eruptive activity in Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō has picked up over the past week. Lava flows erupting sporadically from several places continue to fill the crater and occasionally spill out onto the east flank of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō. This view, looking southwest, shows new lava from active and recent flows on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō's eastern flank. Many of the flows come directly from the small perched lava lake on the northeast side of the crater floor, visible at the center of the photo.
