The active lava flow from Puʻu ʻŌʻō was on the slope near the top of the Pūlama pali today, one of the steep escarpments on Kīlauea’s southeast flank, and had transitioned into a channelized ʻaʻā flow.
The view is to the northwest. (Click to enlarge)
This photo shows a closer view of the front of the ʻaʻā flow.
