This animated image (GIF) shows Kīlauea summit thermal webcam images from the F1cam taken between approximately 2:45 and 5:45 p.m. HST on September 29, 2021. The new Kīlauea summit eruption, which began within Halema'uma'u at approximately 3:20 p.m., is producing lava flows that have covered most of the December 2020-May 2021 lava. The solidified "lava island" from the last eruption is visible in the center (dark blue) and the top of the west vent, which is being drowned by the lava level rise, is visible in the lower center. In the thermal images, warmer colors are indicative of hotter temperatures and cooler colors are indicative of colder temperatures. USGS animation by L. DeSmither.
