[B2cam] Halemaʻumaʻu crater from the east rim and down-dropped block

Detailed Description

[B2cam] This image is from a research camera located on the down-dropped block in Kīlauea caldera and east rim of Halemaʻumaʻu crater within Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. The camera is looking west towards Halemaʻumaʻu crater.


The webcams are operational 24/7 and faithfully record the dark of night if there are no sources of incandescence or other lights. At times, clouds and rain obscure visibility. The cameras are subject to sporadic breakdown and may not be repaired immediately. Some cameras are observing an area that is off-limits to the general public because of significant volcanic hazards.
