Many associate volcanic activity with the Hawaiian Islands, but, for the majority who live here, it is not an everyday event to witness such a spectacle. What is amazing about the footage, above & below, is, beyond its age of over 50 years, the film still offers us the rare glimpse of what it is like to be so close in proximity to a live active volcano. One can’t help wonder what might have been going through minds of the people who risked, not only their expensive film equipment, but their own lives to capture impending lava flows. Fortunately for us, thanks to these brave filmmakers and to those who believed it was necessary to preserve their films, researchers, scientists, and volcano enthusiasts are able watch & enjoy what they have left as their legacy.
