Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō and the Northeast spatter cone

Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater and the Northeast spatter cone...

Detailed Description

The fuming spatter cone near the center of the photo is informally called the "Northeast spatter cone", and is the source of the Kahauale‘a 2 flow. Lava reaches the surface at that point and flows directly into a lava tube, which feeds the active flows downslope. View is toward the west.
