Map of Pu`u `O`o and flank vents

Map of Pu`u `O`o and flank vents, Kilauea Volcano, Hawai`i
Pu`u `O`o cone and surroundings as of March 2000 showing the area covered (dark gray) by lava since February 1997 during episode 55. Inside the crater of Pu`u `O`o, the "trough" is the drained lava pond of September-October 1999. The central portion of the trough was briefly filled with active lava in February 2000.

Puka Nui is the prominent collapse pit on the southwest flank of Pu`u `O`o, which is floored with lava erupted September-October 1999.

Eruption-viewing opportunities change constantly, refer to the HVO home page for current information. Those readers planning a visit to Kilauea or Mauna Loa volcanoes can get much useful information from Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park.
