Detailed Description

A wide view of activity from the east rift zone to the summit. In the foreground, Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater emits fume from numerous sources on the crater floor. One of these cones hosts a small lava pond, and can be seen at the far right edge of the photo, marked by a small bit of incandescence. Snow-covered Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea are in the distance (left and right sides of photo, respectively). In front of Mauna Loa, the plume from the summit lava lake in Halema‘uma‘u crater can be seen drifting west.
