This morning was our first day visiting the eruption site without the TFR in place, which prevented us from flying below 3 thousand feet. We got some great shots of the new beaches from Kapoho to Pohoiki.

Clear skies and no 3000′ TFR made for a fantastic morning overflight! And, once again, there is no visible eruptive activity on Kilauea’s lower east rift zone, although there still is a small amount of sulfur dioxide and steam venting from the recently…

A bit of cloudy skies hung over Hilo and much of Kilauea’s east rift zone, but not enough to keep us from confirming that there is no visible eruptive activity. Although a bit of gas still vents from the inactive fissures, vegetation in areas downwind…

In spite of cloudy conditions this morning, we were able to access the entire flow field of Kilauea Volcano's lower east rift zone eruption. We got a clear look within Fissure 8 this morning, and saw zero lava... not even a small glow.

With Hurricane Norman less than 300 miles away from Hilo, thick bands of cloud cover have been pushing in from the east, and obscuring much of the eruption zone this morning. We were able to have a couple minutes over fissure 8, albeit through some layers…

Here’s a little departure from our volcano documentation, as Hurricane Lane misses the island of Hawai‘i, but not without seriously impacting our weather.  After 4 days of almost non-stop rain, Hilo had a little reprieve, and we were able to fly over our…

The continuing slowdown of Kīlauea’s lower east rift zone eruption has given many of the displaced residents hope for moving back into their homes, but for the animals trapped in kipukas (areas surrounded by lava), life is still a daily struggle because…

Dozens of brand new black sand beaches have appeared all along the southeast coast of the eruption site... even as far down as Mackenzie State Park. Several have popped up on both sides of the initial ocean entry at Mackenzie... and the black sand beach…
