The chain of scoria cones and lava flows extending along an E-W trend in this December 2019 Planet Labs satellite image mosaic is the Assab volcanic field near the Red Sea coast in southern Eritrea (N is at the top; this image is approximately 58 km across). This field covers an area roughly 55 x 90 km, with lava flows reaching the Red Sea to the E, including to the coastal city of Assab.
