Top AirVuz contributor and drone pilot Dave Yip brings us this DVOW nominated video of an extinct volcano in central California.  It's called the Coso Volcanic Field, and it's located in the Mojave Desert about 160 km (around 100 mi.) northeast of the city of Bakersfield.  The field is one of the most seismologically active areas in the United States, and the area frequently sees tremor "storms" involving hundreds of small quakes.  The area is also home to the Coso Geothermal, one of the largest geothermal installations in the country.
