Vents on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō's NE flank

Vents on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō's northeast flank...

Detailed Description

Several vents have opened on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō's northeast flank since last December. A spatter cone grew over one of the vents in mid-May and is visible at the center of the photo emitting bluish fume. In recent weeks, a vent opened upslope from (to the left of) the spatter cone, revealing bright incandescence. The northeast edge of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō's crater, filled with white fume, is to the left of this vent.
