The above is a time-lapse video of the inner workings of Mount Kilauea, a Hawaiian volcano that is one of the most active in the world. The scenes were captured this year between February 15 and March 6, featuring general laval flow and volcano walls breaking off and collapsing into the fiery crater. According to the US Geological Survey, one crater in the volcano houses a lake of lava two-hundred meters deep. Reports estimate that the eruption has caused about 150 detectable earthquakes, but luckily, locals aren’t in danger. 200 meters deep of lava and 150 earthquakes add up to 350 scary things, by the way.
