Small-scale map of Kīlauea's ERZ lava flow

This small-scale map shows Kīlauea's active East Rift Zone lava flow in relation to lower Puna. The area of the flow on January 29 is shown in pink, while widening and advancement of the flow as of February 5 is shown in red.

The blue lines show steepest-descent paths calculated from a 1983 digital elevation model (DEM; for calculation details, see

Many readers have visited the overlook in front of the Jaggar Museum, next door to HVO, and those of you who haven't should do so some time. A grand vista of Kīlauea's caldera awaits you, and many other sightseers as well. The hustle-bustle is commonly a little distracting.

Lava flowing from Kīlauea's ongoing eruption finally made its way to the ocean once again a couple of weeks ago. And for the first time in nearly a year, everyone—;from curious park visitors and staff, to intent photographers, to nerdy (and intent) volcanologists—have been treated to the enrapturing experience of seeing liquid rock encounter liquid ocean.
