Partly cloudy skies once again prevailed during our overflight, and although it didn’t interfere with access to the flow field, it did prevent us from doing our usual observation at Pu‘u ‘O‘o’s lava lake, as the crater was socked in pretty good. The area of breakouts 1/2 mile to the east of the vent remains very active, with lava continuing to effuse from the 61G tube system. Farther down the eruption zone, localized breakouts were visible about 3/4 of a mile above Pulama Pali, but nothing substantial. No activity is present on the steep hillside, coastal plain, or ocean entry. See the latest photos and captions below.
