Bagana volcano is seen here on 7 October 1964 from the S with the 1964 lava flow descending the western flank to the left. About halfway down the flank the flow divides into four lobes, two of which flow to the W and the other two towards the camera to the S. The 1964 eruption began with explosive activity on 24 April. Lava extrusion soon began and continued into 1965. Photo by C.D. Branch, 1964 (courtesy of Ben Talai, Rabaul Volcano Observatory).
