Mount St Helens lights up the night.

There was a major outburst of activity on Mount St Helens at 03:03am this morning. This was one of the largest and brightest events that we have so far seen on the nightly Volcanocam images.

Awesome light show at 3:03 to 3:20am this morning! Brightest blast yet from a large landslide. The webicorders recorded a corresponding larger tremor at that time. Another blast this afternoon, around 4:10pm. The volcanocam caught just the first puffs of ash starting to come up from in it's 4:08pm photo, then the dissipation of the ash/steam cloud in the 4:13pm photo. Another quake corresponds with this event.

Well done with your dillegence catching the amazing behavior of Mt. Saint Helens, Darryl! Should be more interesting stuff tonight, with another clear, bright night out there!

OH, and the USGS has posted a still image from this morning's big flash, at 3:03am. You can see it at the link below or from the main volcanocam home page:
