New Halemaʻumaʻu crater floor lava - June 7, 2023

Detailed Description

Lava that is less than one day old drapes over lava from the late nineteenth to early twentieth centuries on Halemaʻumaʻu crater floor. By the time Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologists arrived, this lava at the perimeter of Halemaʻumaʻu was solid but still warm to touch, having erupted earlier that day.
