The eastern lobe of the leading edge is still active and on its way towards the ocean. The ocean is still about a mile away, but is getting closer every day. Tonight’s flows were active and gave us a show to remember. Out breaks could be seen along the eastern edge and along the flow front. Bright glows could be seen from the western lobe and also from Pu’u O’o.Our groups were able to get up close safely and got to see many incredible breakouts. The leading edge of the eastern lobe which is the furthest flow front is approximately 1/2 mile to 3/4 mile to the ocean. First tour was lead by Ikaika and second tour was lead by Andrew. Both tours took less then 5 hours with lava viewing lasting over 1 hour. Come and join us and you will remember a night that you will never forget. Aloha!

Some Lava for our guests. This at the leading edge of the floe field.

Nice rivers of lava could be safely view with in a few feet from the flow.

This is a picture of the Pulama Pali. Lava had been seen flowing down the hill and also glow from Pu’u O’o vent in the foreground. Many numerous outbreaks on the Pali could be seen also.
