It has been continuously erupting since 1983, and ABC News reports that “[l]ava from the Hawaiian volcano’s Pu’u O’o crater reached the ocean for the first time since 2013.”

But in a spectacular recent eruption, a smiley face appeared in the mouth of the volcano. The event was happily captured by a helicopter tour company flying above.
