Two summit craters at Erebus are seen in this view, with the 500 x 600 m Main Crater (left) containing an active lava lake (lower left) within the Inner Crater. A smaller inactive crater (center), referred to as Side Crater, is located immediately SW of Main Crater. The smaller West Crater is to the upper right.
