The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory's B1cam was located on the east rim of the down-dropped block within Kīlauea’s summit caldera, overlooking Halema‘uma‘u crater to the west. The eruption that began within Halema‘uma‘u crater in the early morning of June 7, 2023, flooded the crater floor with lava and the B1cam was exposed to intense heat.

The eruption in Halema‘uma‘u crater, at the summit of Kīlauea, continues, as shown in this aerial video taken on June 8, 2023. Several lava fountains were active, with lava covering much of the western portion of the crater. The area of active lava on the surface has diminished over the past day, with lower lava fountains compared to yesterday.

A new eruption began in Halema‘uma‘u crater, at the summit of Kīlauea, on the morning of June 7. This overflight occurred about two hours after the eruption onset and shows extensive lava fountaining supplying a rising lava lake within the crater. All lava is contained within the summit caldera.

A summit eruption of Kīlauea volcano, within Halemaʻumaʻu crater, began at approximately 4:44 a.m. on June 7, 2023. Lava is flowing on the crater floor and there are several active vent sources. The eruption at Kīlauea’s summit is occurring within a closed area of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park and high levels of volcanic gas are the primary hazard of concern.

This timelapse video shows the first three days (June 7–9) of the new eruption in Halema‘uma‘u crater, at the summit of Kīlauea. The initial intensity of the eruption covered the crater floor with lava, fed by numerous fountains. As the eruption stabilized and the vigor declined, the area of active lava on the surface was reduced.
