Western Flank of Crater Overtopped by Flows

When Lava Flows Attack!
While we have coverage of the eastern side of this crater, this view of the western flank shows that lava flows poured over the crater’s rim and down towards the interior. The flows appear to have entered from the southwest and northwest sides. Full resolution helps us take a look in greater detail at the flows.
