Mystery Volcano Photo #35

Thank you to all for the comments over on the "state of the blog" post - keep those comments coming. I thought I'd send you off for the weekend with a new Mystery Volcano Photo. If you remember, last time we have a real stumper from Papau New Guinea (submitted by Dr. Philipp Ruprecht). It took a while (and for you all, that means a few hours rather than minutes), but Doug C finally identified MVP #34 as Wagifa Island (see satellite image of Goodenough Island, with Wagipa/Wagifa near the top left of the tear-shaped island), D’Entrecasteaux Island Group in PNG. The shot was taken from Goodenough Island and Wagifa Island is part of this andesite-to-basaltic andesite volcanic cluster.

So, our standings:

updated to reflect the winner of that mystery, Jan Nygard.

As I've been doing for the last couple MVPs, this new image needs some exact information - so you need to identify the volcano and crater in the image ... and provide a rough idea of when it might have been taken.
