Steam pouring from the summit crater of MacKenney cone descends its SW flank in this November 10, 1994 aerial view of Pacaya.  After powerful explosions March 7-10, 1989 that destroyed the upper 75 m of MacKenney cone, strombolian eruptions resumed in early January 1990.  Explosive eruptions were accompanied by lava flows that again armored much of the cone. Copyrighted photo by Stephen O'Meara, 1994.
