A scoria cone with a summit crater forms the apex of Krainy volcano in the Sredinny Range, Kamchatka Peninsula, in the center of this August 2017 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 16 km across). A smaller scoria cone, also red from oxidation, is on the SW flank, beside a roughly 3-km-long lobate lava flow with visible pressure ridges.
