[F1cam] - Kīlauea summit thermal from the west rim of the summit caldera, looking east

Detailed Description

Live Panorama of Halemaʻumaʻu - thermal image from the west rim of the summit caldera, looking east [F1cam].

This camera was upgraded on December 20, 2023, offering a wider field-of-view than the previous Halemaʻumaʻu thermal camera. However, the new camera is not currently temperature-calibrated, therefore it only provides a relative comparison of temperatures within view. For this reason, no temperature scale can be displayed at this time.

Disclaimer: The webcams are operational 24/7 and faithfully record the dark of night if there are no sources of incandescence or other lights. Thermal webcams record heat rather than light and get better views through volcanic gas. 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.
