Video of vortex in Halema‘uma‘u crater, Kīlauea summit eruption – June 7, 2023 -

Scientists observed wind vortexes during the first day of the new eruption in Halemaʻumaʻu crater, which began before sunrise on June 7, 2023. These vortexes form due to extreme heat. As this video shows, the rapidly swirling air can entrain hot lava, flinging pieces of crust. Scientists maintained a safe distance on the rim of the crater and used a telephoto lens to take this video.
