Kīlauea - Summit Cams
Kīlauea is the youngest and most active volcano on the island of Hawaiʻi, with a consistently active summit caldera that frequently hosts lava lake-style eruptions. According to Native Hawaiian tradition, Halemaʻumaʻu crater is the home of the volcanic deity Pele.

Kīlauea- East Rift Zone Cams
Radiating out from the summit, Kīlauea has two rift zones stretching to the east and southwest. The east rift is historically the more active of the two, most recently erupting from January 1983 to August 2018.

This image is from a research camera positioned on the northwest flank of Puʻuʻōʻō, 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 Puʻuʻōʻō.View Webcam
Mauna Loa Cams
The largest volcano on earth, Mauna Loa is comprised of a main summit caldera called Moku‘āweoweo and three rift zones to the northeast, northwest, and southwest. Mauna Loa began erupting on November 27, 2022 at 11:30 PM. Visit the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory on the latest eruption developments. This is the first Mauna Loa eruption since 1984.

Mokuʻāweoweo Caldera [MLcam]
This image is from a temporary research camera positioned on the north rim of Mokuʻāweoweo, the summit caldera of Mauna Loa volcano by the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. If you look carefully around early morning or late evening, you may see a few thermal areas emitting steam.
Mokuʻāweoweo Caldera Thermal [MTcam]
This image is from a temporary thermal camera located on the north rim of Mauna Loa's summit caldera. 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 on the caldera floor and not the whole frame, which sometimes results in the rim (bottom of image) looking saturated (white). Thick fume, image pixel size and other factors often result in image temperatures being lower than actual surface temperatures. Thermal webcams record in Centigrade, conversions to Fahrenheit are provided here for your convenience: 20°C=68°F, 40°C=104°F, 60°C=140°F, 80°C=176°F.
