This February 1967 photo, taken from near Cerro Chino on the northern caldera rim, shows the morphology of the MacKenney crater early in the long-lived eruption that began at Pacaya in 1965. Neary continuous explosive activity with periodic lava effusion first began on 4 July 1965 from a 250-m-wide pit crater that had formed in 1962 without eruptive activity.
