No glow , but a few bumps in the night...

Once again clouds obscured the view of Mount St Helen's crater during the night, although the weather is improving! So we should have better views over the next few days. There were several larger tremors last night, including a much larger one at 21:14, as shown in this webicorder trace from Yellow Rock (Yel - MSH). Here's hoping for some better night time views over the next week!

It's also worthwhile checking out the new views of the second large spine growing out of the lavadome in the crater. This feature will be the most likely source for outbursts during the night over the coming weeks. It's also the first such feature of the current eruption that is visible in the Volcanocam images.
