Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii's Big Island is still in eruption and the U.S. Geological Survey has flown a drone over one of the volcano's craters to get a look inside.
A four-minute video from the drone has been posted at Forbes.com.
The Halemaumau Crater at the summit of Kilauea Volcano has been rumbling nearly nonstop since May 3, when lava began erupting from a series of fissures in the shield volcano's nearby East Rift Zone. Subsidence, earthquakes and rockfalls are rapidly and dramatically reshaping the crater itself and this week the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory sent a drone over the crater for a closer look.
