Tourists enjoying a helicopter ride over Kilauea volcano in Hawaii received a happy greeting from the active volcano.
The hot lava filling the Pu-u O’o volcanic cone formed a smiley face as the tourists flew overhead. Two eyes and a mouth glowed up at the lucky visitors back in June, but the video was only recently released. The smiling face has been in the volcanic cone since February, but the recent helicopter footage has stirred up more interest.
Kilauea volcano has been erupting since 1983 and it is one of the most active volcanoes in the world.
