Here’s a cool fact: There are about 1,500 potentially active volcanoes across the world right now, many of which are located along the Pacific Rim in what is known as the ‘Ring of Fire,’ with Hawaii being considered a volcano hot spot.
Currently, there are three active volcanoes in Hawaii, and whenever one of them erupts, it’s equally fascinating and scary. Watching lava entering the ocean is like watching nature put on one of its best spectacles, but it’s safe to say that getting first seats to this show is pretty hard to do (and extremely risky).
But thanks to the power of the Internet, we can now watch this unique phenomenon via video and witness the creation of new land right before own very eyes without putting ourselves in any kind of danger.
This clip was shot on the rugged volcanic coastline on the island of Hawaii, and the extreme, close-up angle from which it was shot is likely to make your palms sweat.
This is something you definitely don’t see every day, so make sure to also share it with all of your friends and family online. After all, who wouldn’t be curious to see what happens when lava and the ocean come together, right?
