Last week, two new lava flows broke out on Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island, oozing red hot molten rock down the volcano's Pu’u O’o cone.
The breakouts, which began on May 24, have been continuously flowing -- and are quite a sight to behold. Helicopters flying overhead on May 29 captured footage of the lava cascading through the fields of black lava rock.
Kilauea is one of the world's most active volcanoes, so breakouts like these aren't uncommon -- but that doesn't make them any less incredible.
From a bird's-eye view, the mesmerizing lava flows look relatively small, but they are much larger than they appear. The river of lava in the photo below, for instance, is an estimated 32 feet wide.
None of the current flows pose a threat to nearby communities, according to the U.S. Geological Survey website. However, Pu’u O’o has caused alarm for Big Island residents in the past -- a 2014 Pu’u O’o flow claimed one home and threatened a small community for months.
The USGS map below shows the 2014 lava flow in light red and the current breakouts in darker red.
