Detailed Description

A deflation-inflation (DI) event, which began yesterday afternoon, led to a marked decrease in eruptive activity at Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō overnight. The western lava lake, at upper right, became inactive, while the eastern lava lake, filling the center of the frame, dropped several meters and became very sluggish. The drop in level revealed islands nearly hidden when the lake was full. The view is toward the south.
