Such a timely reminder ...
This volcano video might be from 2016, but it resurfaced and started circulating the internet again this week—likely because we all need the reminder to smile right now.
Originally shot by Emmy Award-winner Mick Kalber with Paradise Helicopters, the video shows aerial footage of the west flank of Pu'u 'O'o, the East Rift Zone area of the Kilauea volcano, just as the lava cracks a smiley face.
