Mount St Helens glowing dimly at best

The mountain was clear last night and there were no major outbursts of activity. The incandescent glow from the lavadome was extremely faint, almost to the point of barely being discernible from the background noise in the images. A movie of last nights images which have been enhanced to show the glow activity is available.

The USGS/CVO have released more close up images of the crater, including an interesting sequence of images showing the incredible growth of the lavadome over the last few months.
