A thick ash column rises from Cerro Negro volcano in November 1968 in this aerial view from the south.  A narrow, dark-colored lava flow issues from Cristo Rey, a vent at the SW base of the cone (lower left).  The lighter-colored lava flow lobe below and to the right of the cone was erupted during 1960. Photo by Tom Bretz, 1968 (courtesy of William Melson, Smithsonian Institution).
