Mike Poland, a geophysicist with the US Geological Survey, confirmed the explosion on Thursday.
More than 2,000 residents of the Big Island remain under mandatory evacuation as Kilauea continues to threaten nearby communities.
Hawai'i's Kilauea volcano has spewed ash almost 9 kilometres into the air and scientists have warned this could be the first of a violent string of explosions in the crater.
Tarson said the ash plume looked different than others he's witnessed because of its sheer height.
"I don't think there is a big one that's coming", said University of Hawaii volcanologist Scott Rowland. Mount St. Helens last rumbled to life in 2008, but a massive eruption in 1980 killed 57 people and blew ash over a dozen states.
Shield volcanoes like Kilauea produce runny, basaltic lava that does not tend to erupt as dramatically as steep stratovolcanos like Mount St. Helens.
The U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaii Volcano Observatory said the explosion from the Halemaumau crater happened around 4:15 a.m. on the Island of Hawai'i - also known as the Big Island.

"We may have additional larger, powerful events", USGS geologist Michelle Coombs told reporters after Thursday's eruption.
Broadcasting on local radio stations, Hawaii Civil Defense officials also warned that ash poses are the main health threat from the eruption.
This was the main concern for the sinking molten rock which can create steam as it interacted with the water table and that the steam can be jet upward, hurling heavy rocks and ash into the sky in a phenomenon widely regarded as the phreatic eruption.
"They'd even take their little postcards, burn one corner in the lava flow, mail then off, stuff like that", he said.
"Our shelters are set up so we're not downwind from where the gasses are", he said. It caught sight of an explosive eruption on Thursday morning at Kilauea's summit. He explained from time to time he can feel the rumblings from the active volcano.
Volcanic ash is expected to reach the region to the southwest and west of the Kilauea Volcano Summit (Halemaumau Crater), including cities of Wood Valley, Pahala, Punaluu, Naalehu, and Hawaiian Oceanview Estates, the National Weather Service said in an advisory.
Mount Pinatubo last erupted in 1991, killing more than 350 people in what became the second-largest eruption of the 20th century.
