During this morning's overflight, USGS scientists noted that the distal fissure 8 flow margin had not advanced overnight, and remained less than 175 m (0.1 mi) from the Pohoiki boat ramp in Isaac Hale Park.

When Kīlauea Volcano’s lower East Rift Zone first erupted on May 3, 2018, lava temperatures were about 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. As the eruption progressed, with fresher magma feeding the fissures, the erupted lava became progressively hotter, resulting in more fluid and far-reaching lava flows (May 21 shown here).
