Posted by on December 9, 2011

Lava is 2 miles from the sea as of yesterday lets hope she keep it up.

White Christmas not this year lava continues to flow toward the sea as seen in these HVO photos
Photos taken December 6th 2011 of the current lava fows

Close view of the Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater. Incandescent spatter cone stands above fume rising from the main vent area. Lava is still erupting in the lava pond, marked by the smooth shiny surface behind the spatter cone, but the level appears to have stabilized overnight.

Lava spilling down the steep pali this morning formed many small channels and 'a'ā flows. Many such flows were visible on the pali overnight.

Pāhoehoe flows spreading on the coastal plain about 0.6 km from the base of the pali. When visited this morning, the flows had spread out considerably as they filled in low areas of the coastal plain. The leading edge of the flows were about 2.5 km from the ocean.
