Detailed Description

A new crack 1 km (0.6 mile) long was found during today's overflight on the west (uprift) side of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō. The cracking appeared to be nearly continuous en echelon structures, that were heavily steaming. A small amount of lava was erupted from the crack in the form of tiny pads of lava and spatter, and was no longer active this morning during the overflight. This photo is looking east, and Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō is obscured by low clouds in the upper left corner.
