Puu Oo, Hawaii

 (JPG) Puu Oo, Hawaii (866,342 bytes) ( 2,573 x 2,963 )
The Puu Oo-Kupaianaha eruption of Kilauea is now in its twenty-third year. It is the most voluminous outpouring of lave in the past five centuries. Currently, lava is flowing through the PKK lava tube from its source on the southwest flank of Pu`u `O`o vent to the ocean. About 1 kilometer south of Pu`u `O`o, the Campout flow branches off from the PKK tube. The PKK and Campout systems feed two widely separated ocean entries named East Lae`apuki and East Ka`ili`ili, respectively. Both entries are located inside Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park. In this nighttime ASTER thermal infrared composite image, the hot lava is bright gray or white. The red and blue-gray colors indicate aa or pahoehoe lava, and green is vegetation or clouds. The image was acquired October 30, 2007, covers an area of 20.2 x 18.4 km, and is centered near 19.3 degrees north latitude, 155 degrees west longitude.
