A nighttime time-exposure shows incandescent blocks rolling down from a lava flow on the south flank of Colima in 1982.  Lava movement down the south flank, which had begun on December 9, 1981, had been preceded for several years by intermittent small explosions accompanying growth of the summit lava dome.
