Photo of fiery bubble that stretches 65 feet in the air stuns the Internet

A red-hot bubble was caught on camera spewing out steaming hot lava 65 feet in the air -- and the Internet wants to know more.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) shared the picture on "Throwback Thursday" last week to highlight a "rare" lava-dome fountain that was spotted in Hawaii on October 11, 1969.

"Dome fountain of episode 10, October 10–13, 1969, eruption of Kilauea Volcano," USGS tweeted. "Symmetrical dome fountains such as this are rare."
