Incandescent blocks spilling off a slow-moving lava flow create a fiery stream as white stars dot the night-time sky in this April 24, 1961 time exposure.  Following rise of the summit lava dome, a lava flow began spilling down the northern flank of Colima in 1961 and reached the caldera moat by the end of 1962.
