Video of the week: Epic lava 'fire hose' in Hawaii

This dramatic lava flow streamed out of Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano. Filmed by Kalapana Cultural Tours, it was temporarily extinguished by a cliff collapse but returned with a vengeance a few days later. The lava flow, named 61g, has captured the attention of geologists since it first appeared earlier this year.

    That is incredible. Nature can be so frightening yet awe inspiring at the same time. I definitely wouldn’t like to be that close to a lava flow of that size, but it is an amazing video.

    Oh wow first of all I was so confused by what the video was of, the quality is almost TOO crisp and clear! I wonder if it feels really hot standing as close as the people were to it? Such a beautiful sight to see, I’d love to see lava at some point in my life. It’s definitely photogenic!
