Incandescent blocks dislodging from a slow-moving lava flow create an incandescent path below stars in this 24 April 1961 night-time long exposure of Colima. Following lava dome growth in the summit crater, a lava flow began traveling down the northern flank in 1961 and reached the caldera moat by the end of 1962.
