ponds often formed atop the rootless shields built by the "Thanksgiving Eve Breakout" (TEB) lava flow
. This movie shows the failure of the flank of a rootless shield on January 26, 2008, and the release of the lava contained within the perched lava pond at its summit. The inner wall of the perched lava pond come into view as the lava drains out to feed a channelized ‘a‘ā flow advancing to the southeast (to the right). The terminus of this flow entered the upper part of the mostly-abandoned Royal Gardens subdivision before stagnating.
The images that make up this movie were acquired by a time-lapse camera positioned about 1 kilometer south of a steep-sided rootless shield topped by a lava pond.
