This aerial view shows the Popocatépetl summit crater in 1996, following the 1994-95 eruptive period. Subsequent activity has been both effusive and explosive, with periodic extrusion and explosive removal of lava domes emplaced on the crater floor. This aerial view is roughly from the north, with the summit out of view to the right.
