The June 27th lava flow—named for the day it began erupting from a vent on Kilauea’s Pu‘u ‘O’o crater—continues to move northeast through Puna Forest Reserve. The Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on the Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite captured this image of lava burning through forest on September 11, 2014. The flow was within 0.6 kilometers (0.4 miles) of the Kaohe Homesteads development when EO-1 acquired the image. Houses in Kaohe Homesteads appear as white dots on the right side of the image.

During an aerial survey on September 10, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory captured the lower photograph. It shows the Kaohe Homesteads in the foreground, with smoke plumes from the lava flow rising in the distance.
