Photographer Captures Lava from Kilauea Flowing Like a Fast-Moving River in Hawaii (VIDEO)

We’ve featured jaw-dropping footage of lava from the erupting Kilauea volcano in Hawaii swallowing an entire car, and an unbelievable photo of the smoldering volcano from space, but here’s something perhaps equally amazing. In the below video a stream of fast-moving lava from Kilauea speeds by at incredible speed.

The river of lava video was shot by photographer Ken Boyer showing Kilauea’s Fissure 8 on June 15, 2018 around 5pm local time.

I think something like 800-1000 mm lens was used to shot this.
