The Big Obsidian Flow covers 2.6 km2 of the floor of Newberry caldera and was emplaced about 1,300 years ago. The eruption began from a vent at the base of the southern caldera wall with a large pumice fall deposit followed by a pyroclastic flow that entered Paulina Lake, and finally with emplacement of the obsidian flow. East Lake lies in the background in this view from the southern caldera rim.
