This 19 April 2005 aerial photograph of the Karthala Chahalé crater was taken from the SE. The surface of the lava lake, which had been emplaced the day before, had chilled and was emitting a white plume. Much of the summit area displays recently-deposited tephra from explosive eruptions on the 16th and 17th.
