An aerial view from the SW on September 12, 1991 shows an eruption plume from Raung volcano in eastern Java blown by strong winds to the NW. Behind Raung is the massive Ijen caldera, capped by the post-caldera cone of Gunung Merapi (upper right). The light spot below and to the left of Merapi is Kawah Ijen, a renowned crater lake. The flat-topped volcano at the upper left is Gunung Baluran, which occupies the NE-most tip of the island of Java.

An atmospheric cloud drifts to the east from the summit of the small 1247-m-high andesitic volcano of Baluran, seen here from the SW, along the saddle between it and Ijen volcano. Gunung Baluran, which occupies the very NE tip of Java, contains a broad horseshoe-shaped crater breached to the NE. The volcano lies within a national park and game reserve featuring savannah grasslands and monsoon forests.
