HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK, HI (WFLA) – Stunning images from Hawaii’s Big Island on Tuesday are going viral.

That’s not solely because of the giant ash plume, but the unbothered golfers pictured.

The plume of ash from the volcano rose 12,000 feet into the air, according to CNN, and dropped ash on the island.

On Tuesday, the US Geological Survey issued a red alert for Hawaii’s Big Island, warning of an imminent major eruption. 

Clearly… not everyone on the island was worried.
