Photo and Video Chronology - Kīlauea - May 7, 2004

Manifestations of lava

This is a photo of a track of Banana flow.
Track of Banana flow is along right (east) side of long green kipuka just right of center. Flow is warmer and hence lighter hued than other Mother's Day flows. Just below center of image, flow splits into two strands that come together downstream just above top of Paliuli (near bottom of image). Banana flow then cascades over Paliuli under crust and spreads both away from pali and westward along base of pali.
This is a photo of two incandescent holes.
The eyes have it. Two incandescent holes indicate position of forks in fallen tree trunk. Trunk remains, but smaller forks have burned away.
