Overflight of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō on August 22

VIDEO: Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō remains quiet. Clear weather during HVO's August 22 overflight provided good views into the drained crater. Rubble from crater wall collapses has filled in much of the deeper part of the crater, with the bottom now at about 250 meters (820 feet) below the east rim. The curvature of the horizon is caused by the wide-angle view of the camera. USGS video by M. Patrick, 08-22-2019.
