Beautiful overcast skies greeted us as we approached Kilauea’s east rift zone, making Pu‘u ‘O‘o’s lava lake glow all the more. Winds were favorable as well, so we had a great opportunity to observe the bubbling and churning pit of molten lava. On the upper flow field, there were numerous little breakouts scattered throughout, with several larger ones that we hovered over. There were no visible breakouts on and below Pulama Pali, but the ocean entry at Kamokuna continues to be vigorously active, as multiple fingers of lava pour into the sea. A sizable stress fracture through the delta that was covered by the eruption of lava from the encasement, is now visible again, indicating that slippage/shifting is occurring.
