A large unnamed area of recent mafic lava flows is located on the floor of the Ethiopian Rift Valley SW of Tullu Moje volcano.  The lava flows were emplaced within a NE-SW-trending zone near the active eastern margin of the rift valley, NE of Ziway Lake (W of this December 2020 PlanetLabs satellite image monthly mosaic, N is at the top). This image is approximately 29 km across. Satellite image courtesy of Planet Labs, 2019.
