This 400-m-wide crater formed during an eruption of Taal in 1976. That eruption modified cones and craters that had been constructed during yearly eruptions from 1966 to 1970 within a larger crater that formed during the 1965 eruption. This 1984 photo from the SW also shows a small crater that was created in 1977 crater along the wall at the margin of the flat bench at the upper right side of the 1976 crater.
