Detailed Description

View of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, looking southwest. The vent for the Kahauale‘a 2 flow is on the near side of the crater, close to the center of the photograph (but obscured by white fume). The Kahauale‘a 2 lava tube that is supplying lava to the flow front in the forest (see photo above) goes down the north flank of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō cone, and is marked by a line of fume extending towards the lower right corner of the photo. The lava tube that supplied the Peace Day flow (now inactive) extends to the southeast (towards the lower left corner of the photo) and is marked by a line of faint fume sources.
