The blocky lava flow in the foreground was erupted in 1772 from a vent on the northern side of Old Masaya cone (extreme left).  The dark flow at the upper right spilling over the rim of Nindirí crater was erupted in 1670 and traveled down the northern flank of the cone. Photo by Paul Kimberly, 1998 (Smithsonian Institution).
