What is up with Halema'uma'u inside of Kilauea Caldera
The View from HVO - Hawaii Volcano Observatory
This used to show the
Halemaumau Pit crater
, with the
glowing / steaming Overlook Crater and Lava Lake
. A lot has changed!
Draining of the lava and collapse of the Overlook Crater and Halemaumau! With lots of earthquakes!!!
When your mouse is over the image, it will switch to an older image, pre-collapse
View to the left of the previous - showing the continued and extent of the ongoing collapse
The reflections are from the observation tower at HVO, the camera isn't angled right to eliminate them!
New Camera looking down into the deepest area (but you can't see to the bottom)
A telephoto view of the far wall of Halemaumau
Older images - showing some of the overflow from the 2015 event.
These cameras are no longer in position. And, in fact
their position isn't there anymore!
And Down the Rift - At
- Now collapsed into a Pit Crater 1300 ft deep
Note - the Magnitude 5 quakes at the summit have the Energy of a "5" but not the propagating ground shaking one would expect
