The Volcanocam returns!

The views of Mount St Helens crater are once agin being streamed to the world via the Volcanocam at the Johnson Ridge Observatory (JRO). The camera has been out of action since the 14th December 2005 due to a problem with the communications server, which has now been replaced. Unfortunately, the weather is not really co-operating and the views of the crater have been obscured by clouds for the last 24 hours!

If you are interested in views of the night sky (and don't have the same problem with clouds), the website Universe Today has a wonderful e-book available called What's Up 2006 - 365 Days of Skywatching. It provides a guide on what's in the sky every night for the coming year, and best of all it's free!

While we wait for MSH to clear up (i'm guessing Sunday may see a few minutes of clearing on the JRO cam), check out Augustine in Alaska. Some amazing web cam images from today:
