Mystery glow returns

The mystery glow on the western flank of Mount St Helens returned again last night. It only appeared intermittently and was really only visible in the enhanced images, but it was there!

The other interesting news is the appearance of the moon skirting the Volcanocam's view of the mountain the last couple of nights. It looked quite spectacular, especially on Tuesday night.

I must say that reflection of the moon on the glass looks strikingly like the glow in its size. It makes me wonder about a near by intermittent light source that would be affected by cloud cover. This seems like another improbable explaination.

Have field crews been out to that West flank yet?

I give up - we've figured out what it's not - bad pixels, campfires, headlights, cosmic rays etc. It's gotta be something INSIDE the mountain- what could it be? Could something emit light, but not movement - i.e. not be detectable by the volcano movement monitors?
