Ocean entry near Kupapa‘u Point...

Detailed Description

Lava continues to enter the ocean near Kupapa‘u Point, with an entry point just inside the National Park (near left side of photo) and entry points just east of the Park boundary (near the center of the photo). Widely scattered patches of surface lava are also active inland from the ocean entry points. Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō is a low lump on the horizon near the top of the photo immediately to the right of the image's center line. The plume from the lava lake in Halema‘uma‘u is visible in the background to the left of the image's center line.
