Dark strip on Saunders Island

Satellite image from the 29th December 2015 shows what appears to be a dark strip on Saunders Island extending from the summit area of Michael Volcano to the eastern shore of the island. Based on the image posted in my last post, this suggests that a lava flow from an eruption may have occurred. To be able to determine whether it really is a lava flow, I need a clear image of Saunders Island from Landsat 8.

Also, an emission appears to have originated from Zavodovski Island in a satellite image from 28th December 2015.
