A lava flow issues from a WNW-flank vent on MacKenney cone at Pacaya volcano on January 10, 1987.  Steam pours from the summit crater, which was producing strombolian eruptions at the same time.  Comparable activity at Pacaya began in 1965 and continued into the next century. Photo by Klaus Mehl, 1987 (GEOMAR, Germany).
