Downrift view of fissure
7 and a line of low lava fountains
on Kīlauea Volcano's lower East Rift Zone. Fissure
7 activity increased overnight, with lava
fountains reaching 150-200 feet high and producing a large spatter rampart over 100 feet tall. The fountains fed a perched pāhoehoe flow 20-40 feet thick, and a flow that ultimately turned south toward the coast.
