THE MAGMA LAYER — For the past month, videos of this lava fire hose have popped up online after a piece of cliff broke off and hot lava started pouring out into the ocean.

The videos are spectacular, but this new one is one of the most impressive. The photographer captured the fire hose with his Phantom 3 drone in Kalapana, Hawaii. You won't be able to take your eyes off the screen for the entirety of the 4-minute video.

Yesterday's Have You Seen This?

The massive flow of lava is hard to fathom, but the scenery is also beautiful. While watching it, I kept thinking about all the magnificent sights nature offers us and just how amazing nature really is.

I've tried to fly a drone, and let's just say the experience turned out to be very embarrassing and very expensive. That's why I'm even more impressed with this video and the expert flying, video footage and captivating visuals. I know we've seen these videos before, but this one stands out as one of the most impressive. And that's why I ask you, have you seen this?
