The Kawah Ijen Volcano Flows and Burns with Blue Fire

Unlike your typical volcano, the Kawah Ijen Volcano flows with sulfur instead of lava. With their destructive force, volcanoes are generally something to stay as far away from as possible. Instead of staying away from this volcano, though, people flock towards it to witness the spectacular blue fire.

The sulfur from the Kawah Ijen Volcano is so hot that it flows as a liquid. When the light from the fire hits the smoke being produced by the sulfur, you find yourself looking at an eerie blue fog. When the sulfur burns beside someone holding a flare, you can truly see how blue the fire is actually burning. Seeing a river of blue fire is a marvel that you would think to only find in fantasy films. It appears that the earth still has marvels to show us.
