Lava flow from South spatter cone

Detailed Description

A lava flow fed from a spatter cone on the south part of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō's crater floor (the South spatter cone) continues to advance toward the east-southeast, and is about 700 m from its vent. The flow is the silvery lava that crosses the center of the photo.
