Babuyan de Claro Volcano, Indonesia

Conical Smith volcano in the foreground is one of five Pleistocene-to-Holocene volcanic centers occupying Babuyan de Claro Island north of Luzon.

The symmetrical basaltic andesite cinder cone of Smith Volcano (also known as Mount Babuyan), rises to 688 m and is the youngest volcano on the island.

Both the higher Babuyan Claro volcano and Smith volcano have apparently been active in historical time, although the identity of the erupting volcano is not always certain.
