Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō and the northern lava flow

Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater and the northern lava flow...

Detailed Description

The eastern rim of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō is no longer visible, having been buried by flows mostly from the small lava lake on the northeast side of the crater floor. A mound of lava with a complex of spatter cones, visible in the background, now surrounds the lava lake, which is only visible from the air. Lava from the lava lake is feeding a small lava flow active at the northern base of the Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō cone. The box in the foreground houses the Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō Crater webcam shown on the HVO webpage. A time-lapse camera on a tripod is visible on the crater rim in the distance.
