Bagging It!

Teon, an elongated island in the southwestern Banda arc, is also known as Serawerna, the name of its active crater. Another smaller crater is located to the NNE of Serawerna. Explosive eruptions have been recorded from the andesitic Teon volcano since the 17th century. The largest historical eruption, in 1660, produced pyroclastic flows and surges and caused damage and fatalities (Smithsonian).
