Dark basaltic lava flows that erupted from the Manda Hararo complex are seen here on 20 August 2007, about a week after the start of the eruption. This was the first historical eruption of Manda Hararo. The `a`a and pahoehoe lava flows traveled only a few hundred meters from a fissure lined with small spatter ramparts and scoria cones.
