Earth volcanic flow compared to King crater interior

Earth volcanic flow compared to King crater interior
Earth volcanic flow compared to King crater interior (Top) Cascading molten rock at COTM. Note that it is not a river channel but a lava channel. (Bottom) Cascading flow of molten rock at crater King observed in a portion of Apollo 16 image AS16-P-5005. Note that the top image is taken from the ground while bottom picture was taken from the space so you need to be a little creative! The yellow arrow points to the molten flow which is about 2 km long. The black arrow indicates the required observer position to see the cascading flow as it was observed at COTM.
