Colima volcano (Mexico) July 2015: aerials

Pictures taken during an overflight on 16 July 2015. They show the active lava flow, the path of the recent pyroclastic flows, in particular the 10 km long one from 11 July, rockfalls, and the new crater configuration after the (pre-11 July) dome had collapsed, giving way to the new lava flow on the southern flank.
