Lava inside the crater of Mount Michael!

In the clear day satellite image of 6th October 2015, I discovered what is the most concrete evidence of volcanic activity on Mount Michael to date. The image clearly shows the presence of lava inside the summit crater. In my view, this is either a lava lake or it could be intensive strombolian activity inside the crater.

Definitely some activity on Michael Volcano. SOURCE: Landsat 8/USGS/NASA.

In other images, a dark area is present on the peninsula of Candlemas Island which indicates elevated ground temperatures of volcanic origin or fumarolic activity, and a thermal image shows what appears to be a slight thermal anomaly on Montagu Island.
