Merapi Volcano, Indonesia

Incandescent rockfalls accompanying slow growth of the summit lava dome descend from beneath a cloudcap covering the summit of Merapi volcano in this 1993 nighttime view.

Periodic collapse of Merapi's lava dome has produced pyroclastic flows down the western and southern flanks that have devastated populated areas and agricultural lands.
