Check Out This Otherworldly “Blue Hour” Lava Flow At Hawaii

Hawaiis Kilauea is pretty damn good at erupting lava in fact, its been doing it continuously since 1983, and will likely keep going for several hundred or thousands of years, perhaps with little remainders every now and then. If you havent ensure its exploding deltas, lava hoses, and rivers of molten rock meandering across the landscape, then go – right now, if possible.

This lava commonly burns bright red and orange as it flowings and cools, but every now and then, some sneaky filmmakers or photographers watch the incandescence at a particular time of day known as the blue hour, the period of twilight early at daybreak or late at twilight, just as the Sun is peeking above the horizon.

Thanks to the scattering of illuminate in the ambiance at this angle, the sky takes on a distinctly blue colour as most of the red light escapes out into space. Traditionally in art, this blue hue has romantic connotations, but as it turns out, it frames lava in a beautiful and alien-like shade too.

After youre done looking at the mesmerizing mixture of purples and ambers spin around in a fiery ballet before your eyes, make sure you go to an airline website so you can book your tickets to see this in person. If you dont, then we can never be friends, frankly.

Oh, and if you actually want to see genuinely blue lava the seriously smelly type that ignites sulfur compounds as it flows then head to Indonesia instead.
