Kilauea continues to erupt on its east rift zone, from Pu‘u ‘O‘o to the Kamokuna ocean entry. While clouds initially prevented us from accessing the vent’s crater, it eventually cleared to give us the view we were hoping for, and observed vigorous spattering within the lava lake. Slabs of its hardened surface were being drawn into its molten depths. Breakouts on the upper flow field continue to occur, as well on Pulama Pali. And although rain isn’t something we enjoy, it did bless us with an incredible full circle rainbow! And lastly, the Kamokuna ocean entry rages on, adding to the new delta of land that protrudes from the base of the cliff. The stress fractures in the lava bench are increasing in width, more than likely indicating a collapse in the near future.
