View of the active flow field; Scientist collects lava sample...

Detailed Description

Lava flows are scattered across a broad area extending from about 3 to 8 km (2-5 mi) northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō. The active flows start just above the horizontal mid-line of the photo, but cannot be picked out easily within the broader inactive flow field due to their distance away in this photo. The most distant active lava is burning forest, and the bluish smoke from this can be seen in a few areas in the distance, partly shrouded by clouds.
