Interactive video lesson plan for: Weird Places: The Glowing Blue Lava at Kawah Ijen

Activity overview:

Maybe you've seen pictures of glowing blue lava flows and dismissed them as Photoshop trickery. Healthy skepticism is good, but there really is a volcano in Indonesia where a unique fluke of chemistry creates an eerie blue glow.
