Lava flows are powerful and fascinating to watch. We saw this one on Devour, below, and immediately watched it and the one above.

These are both from Kilauea’s Pu`u O`o crater, which “has been erupting continuously since January 3, 1983, making it the longest-lived rift-zone eruption of the last two centuries.” 

For a more personal take on the event, meet a man who lived next to the flows for 30 years.
