Lava activity continues at the crater and above the coast

I have not made it back out to either Halema’uma’u crater or the advancing lava above the coastal viewing area these past few days, but will do so tomorrow. The USGS Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatory site posted some excellent images yesterday: a QuickTime thermal movie showing the 260-foot wide broiling lake of molten lava inside the Halema’uma’u active crater vent, and ground & aerials showing the advancing surface flow.
