Photo Gallery

The center of the three-pronged, dinosaur-footprint-shaped Laguna de Bay in the center of the NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the upper right) is Laguna Caldera. The caldera, whose lake surface is only 1 m above sea level, may have formed during at least two major explosive eruptions about 1 million and 27,000-29,000 years ago. The city of Manila lies along Manila Bay at the top center, and the large caldera at the lower left is Taal. At the extreme right is the Pacific Ocean.
