she'll be comin' round the mountain...

More cool geology stuff! Mt St Helens is going again. Last night around 5:30 she sent off a bunch of ash and steam. Folks at the USGS say that a new crack has appeared in the dome and you can actually see the liquid hot magma. These photos are courtesy of the generous USGS. Their websites are linked on the sidebar.

The above photo is a close up of the dome at the beginning of last nights eruption.
