Aloha! The leading edge of the eastern lobe has advanced further east by approximately 150-250 yds and our group was able to get up close to surface flows safely. There was a lot of lava to be seen tonight with the leading edge being fairly active.  The distance between the leading edge and the ocean is approximately 0.7 mi. Small surface breakouts could be seen at the top of the Royal Gardens subdivision, although from our vantage point they look no more than a couple of red dots. All in all tonight was a success, even though our group was sprinkled by a little bit of rain. Till next time, Aloha!
