    You actually see the crack get larger in front of the videographer’s feet in video 2. That is some pretty daring filming.

    Hardly unimaginable this earth’s core is so “violent” when you look at all the beauty on the thin outer layer of it…

    Pretty and scary at the same time. Hope it doesn’t get any worse.

    Wow! Seems a little dangerous to be so close! This is especially interesting to me because my family walked on the crusted crater beneath the hotel that sits up on the rim. It was so desolate, like some extra-terrestrial terrain from Star Trek, or the moon. I remember it being warm beneath our feet, too, and hot air escaped from small openings.

    Standing a bit too close there, no?
    Thanks for sharing, though — quite impressive and humbling!

    Wow! We were just there in September! May I suggest the Sunrise Lava Cruise?! Now the action should be SPECTACULAR!!

    Thanks for sharing. My son’s dream is to go to Hawaii to see the volcanoes. I showed him the videos, and I am pretty sure he just put more money in his Hawaii fund (aka piggy bank).

    I really liked the second one — watching the earth disappear and the magma start coming out of the fissure! Congrats on being freshly pressed – well deserved!

    I use to live in Hilo. I was at Kilauea Volcano back in 1983 when it first started erupting and it hasnt really stopped since. Hard to believe its been going 27 years now. I remember when it took its first house. The millions of dollars in damage it has done over the years is incredible. Something so beautiful yet so destructive…. so sad. These were great videos!!! Thanks for sharing!

    Congrats on being freshly pressed!
