The 6.5-km-diameter Apoyo caldera formed during two Plinian eruptions around 24,000 years ago, seen in this March 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 13 km across). The caldera was created within broad lavas that formed the previous edifice. Satellite image courtesy of Planet Labs Inc., 2019 (https://www.planet.com/).
