Civil Beat photographer Anthony Quintano took to the air Tuesday to view the ever-changing volcanic landscape in lower Puna.
Fiery fissure No. 8 continues to impersonate a volcano summit, with lava ponding to the side of its cinder cone.
As lava flows away from the fissure, the surface begins to cool and solidify, cracking as it continues to move.

Before Kapoho crater was surrounded by lava, a flow entered the center, consuming what was known as Green Lake.
Lava divides vegetation killed by sulfur dioxide emissions from still-lush areas.
Homes along the northern portion of the flow in Leilani Estates remain threatened by overflow breakouts.
This section of the flow has been seen in videos on social media speeding along at up to 20 mph.
