Sorry for the delay in posting this update! Eruptive activity continues on Kilauea’s east rift zone, from Pu‘u ‘O‘o to the Kamokuna ocean entry. Within Pu‘u ‘O‘o crater, the lava pond remains quite active as bubbling and spattering was observed. Gases made it difficult to get a clear shot during the short time we hovered above it, and also at the skylights high on the northeast rim. The 3 week old eastern lobe also remains active, with breakouts mostly at its distal tip, and is approximately a mile long. Meanwhile, on the coastal plain, the skylights at the base of Pulama Pali still glows with intensity from the river of lava deep within, and the Kamokuna ocean entry rages on as its robust plume can be seen from miles away. See the photos below from the overflight.
