Some new drone video from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano for you. It looks like the surface of Mustafar. You can almost see Obi-wan and Anakin surfing on the lava.

The problem is that the volcano is affecting only a very tiny slice of the Big Island, but tourism has dropped almost 50%. On an island that takes in $2.4 billion a year in tourism dollars, and people are cancelling their trips.

On the other end of the spectrum, more than 40 people have added a trip to jail to their itinerary - for going into the lava zones to take pictures.
