New Lava Skylights

New skylights, a gorgeous pahoehoe flow above the Pali, and an ocean entry lava delta getting huge! Paradise pilot Rob Mitchell got us up close and personal with Pele.

Plenny Pali Flows

Pele's surface lava continues to breakout on the Pali.. both pahoehoe and a/a flows were observed this morning. She has also advanced about a quarter mile toward the ocean on the coastal flats. Break outs continue a considerable distance above the Pali as well, and she continues to build her new lava delta at the Kamokuna ocean entry. Pu'u 'O'o was inaccessible today...…

Lava Reaches Pali

Another gorgeous morning! A particularly outrageous overflight revealed numerous picturesque flows, now cresting the Pali (cliffs), and heading down the steeper slope. The Pu'u 'O'o vent was particularly accessible today... the lake within most active. The 61G surface flow has made it's way to the Pali... where several sizable outbreaks have begun oozing their way over the hill. Pele's molten lava continues to…

Easter Ducky Lava

Back in the air with Paradise master pilot, Pete Stachowicz. The 61G surface flow is still slowly moving toward the Pali... Pele is within a half mile of the steep downslope. Several sizable outbreaks filled our frames today the fiery molten lava. Pele's flows continues to pour lava into the ocean in more traditional wide entry... dozens of lava rivulets…

Rainy Day Lava

Rainy Day Ducky joined Movie-Going Ducky to help pilot Robert Mitchell guide us through the raindrops to the vent this morning. Pu'u 'O'o's lava lake was active and Pele greeted us with a wry smile! Lava exits the lake and feeds the 61G flows lava tubes which carry the liquid rock to the ocean entry six miles below. A few…
