A view of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō Crater looking west, with the main crater in the center of the photo. In the background the west pit - which has an active lava pond inside - can be seen adjacent to the larger crater. The northeast spillway vent is in the lower right. A lava stream was previously visible inside this pit, but no lava could be seen on today's overflight. Photo taken Wednesday, November 22, 2017 courtesy of USGS/HVO
