September 2, 2022 WorldView-3 satellite image of the active lava flow at Great Sitkin Volcano. The lava has been eruption since July 2021 and has filled most of the summit crater and overflowed the crater rim in four locations to form lobes >1 km (3280 ft) in length. The lava continues to spread into the intracaldera glacier to the east, but much of the active lava (central, gray and steaming zone with steep margins ~500 m or ~1640 ft in diameter) is now flowing over the top of the earlier flow (smoother black surface ~1.1 km or ~3600 ft in diameter).
