Recently emplaced flows on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō's spillway...

Detailed Description

The "spillway"—Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō's eastern flank—has been buried by flows fed mostly from a spatter cone on the northeastern side of the crater floor. Most of the dark-colored lava in the foreground is new lava that has resurfaced the spillway. The fume to the left is the trace of the Peace Day tube, newly covered by crater overflows, currently carrying lava to the coast. The tube carrying lava to the northeast is not obvious, but extends toward the lower right side of the photo.
