January 17, 2013 Guided Lava Hike

Aloha Viewers! We had more awesome flows tonight. There were multiple ocean entry points again and the surface flows were very close to the ocean entry also. We were able to safely view both of these tonight. Many bright glows could be seen along the flow field, but none as bright as the ocean entry or Pu’u O’o. The collapse pit in Pu’u O’o is said to have almost filled up, which would explain why a bright glow can be seen  from the coastal  plains.

The activity is really good at this time, so call and reserve your spot. Aloha!
