An eruption that began on 31 January 1968 produced a scoria cone, whose crater is seen at the lower right. The dark lava flow that extends from the scoria cone to produce a lava delta in Lake Taal was emplaced during the 1968 eruption, which lasted until 2 April. This December 1968 aerial view from the NE shows the black 1968 scoria cone within the 1966 tuff cone whose rim is at the lower right. The lava flow traveled to the lake within the crater produced during the major 1965 eruption. Photo by Kurt Frederickson, 1968 (Smithsonian Institution).
