We have a "zit".

Impressive, as it is the first confirmed eruption of new lava at the volcano in its history. All previous reports dealt with shattered bits of juvenile lava but nothing appeared above the crater floor before.

Prior reports of juvenile product was "Basaltic Andesite" (mid 1990s); current dome composition would be interesting to know as a comparison.

Have a nice day: Ag
