Vulcanism ~ not Mr. Spock!

A static image (updated every five minutes) of Mount St. Helens, Washington USA, taken from the Johnston Ridge Observatory. The summit of Mount St. Helens is at an elevation of 2,549 Meters (8,364 feet), at 46.20 N, 122.18 W.  The summit stood at 9,677 feet before the May 18, 1980, eruption. The Observatory and VolcanoCam are located at an elevation of approximately 4,500 feet, about five miles from the volcano. You are looking approximately south-southeast across the North Fork Toutle River Valley. The Mount St. Helens VolcanoCam is brought to you by the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Vancouver, Washington, and Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, Amboy, Washington USA. Via the wonderful meg blog here is a live-ish (updated every 5 minutes) view of Mt St. Helens, which has been experiencing renewed volcanic activity lately.

I'm not sure what is happening at the moment...it's probably just night-time over there, all I get is dark static...
