The Vaiyots-Sar scoria cone has a roughly 500-m-wide summit crater, seen in this August 2020 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 15 km across). Lavas with visible flow boundaries and levees are to the NW and S to SW of the cone, with some long, linear flows and some much broader flow fronts with pressure ridges.
