From the rim of the crater Mackenney, they have seen a continuous and violent spattering in the central vent of a cinder cone, a height of about fifteen meters, built in the crater. Regular activity is marked by different intensity cycles of 10 to 20 minutes; in the strongest phases, lava bombs were ejected at a height of 150-200 meters, falling inside the crater deep of a hundred meters.
A second vent, located in the eastern part of the cone has also spattering during the most intense phases of activity of the main vent. The floor of the crater is Mackenney is partially covered with lava flows that seem new.
