Kīlauea Caldera [KIcam]

From HVO Observation Tower 

This image is from a research camera mounted in the observation tower at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. The camera is looking SSE towards the active vent in Halemaʻumaʻu, 1.9 km (1.2 miles) from the webcam. For scale, Halemaʻumaʻu is approximately 1 km (0.6 mi) across and about 85 m (~280 ft) deep.

Puʻu ʻŌʻō South Flank [PScam]

From the South Rim

This image is from a temporary research camera positioned just south of Puʻu ʻŌʻō, looking north at the southern flank of Puʻu ʻŌʻō's cone. (Operated by: USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory) View webcam

Puʻu ʻŌʻō North Flank [PNcam]

From the North Rim

This image is from a research camera positioned on the northwest flank of Puʻu ʻŌʻō, looking northeast toward the active flow field. (Operated by: USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory) View webcam

Puʻu ʻŌʻō Crater Thermal [PTcam]

From the North Rim

This image is from a temporary thermal camera positioned on the northwest flank of Puʻu ʻŌʻō, looking southeast at Puʻu ʻŌʻō's summit crater. The temperature scale is in degrees Celsius up to a maximum of 500 degrees (932 degrees Fahrenheit) for this camera model, and scales automatically based on the maximum and minimum temperatures within the frame. Thick fume, image pixel size and other factors often result in image temperatures being lower than actual surface temperatures. (Operated by: USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory) View webcam

Puʻu ʻŌʻō East Flank [PEcam]

From East of Puʻu ʻŌʻō

This image is from a temporary research camera positioned northeast of Puʻu ʻŌʻō, on Puʻu Halulu, looking southwest toward the northeast flank of Puʻu ʻŌʻō. (Operated by: USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory) View webcam

Puʻu ʻŌʻō West Flank [PWcam]

From Puʻu ʻŌʻō

This image is from a research camera positioned on the northwest flank of Puʻu ʻŌʻō, looking southwest. On the morning of May 24, 2016, this camera was rotated to be pointed northeast to follow a new breakout on the east flank of Puʻu ʻŌʻō. (Operated by: USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory) View webcam

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.
