An eruption plume rises above Navidad (Christmas) cone on the NE flank of Lonquimay volcano (left center) on January 15, 1989.  The eruption began on Christmas day, 1988, and lasted over a year.  A 200-m-high cinder cone was formed and a lava flow that originated from Navidad cone traveled 10 km down the NE flank.  Neighboring Tolguaca volcano appears at the left in this view from the WSW.
