Night of 29/30 March - The views of the crater were clear from sunset to sunrise and the active hotspots on the lavadome were consistently bright throughout the night. There were no major outbursts of activity and seismic levels remain low.

Night of 28/29 March - The weather improved yesterday afternoon and we had good views of the activity in the crater throughout last night.

Night of 25/26 March - The skies were clear for most of last night and the hotspots on the lavadome were visible and active. The view was obscured after 04:00 this morning, possibly by low clouds or mist/steam in the crater.

Night of 21/22 March - The clouds lifted around midnight and the incandescent glow from the lavadome was visible for most of the rest of the night. Also, there was a M2.9 quake at 03:26 this morning.

Night of 18/19 March - There was a fairly uninterrupted view of the lavadome and the active hotspots from 20:00 until 03:00 this morning. There were no major outbursts and clouds still occasionally obscured the view.

Night of 16/17 March -  There were no clouds to interrupt the views of the crater overnight. The incandescent glow from the lavadome was bright and relatively consistent throughout the night, indicative of the continuing extrusion of hot rocks and lava.

Night of 15/16 March -  Clouds obscured the view of the crater until just before 22:00, then the clouds lifted and there was a reasonably clear view for the rest of the night. Levels of seismic activity remains low, but there was a small M2.2 quake registered at 00:58 this morning.

Night of 14/15 March -  Apart from a brief period immediately after sunset, the active hotspots on the lavadome were visible throughout last night.

Night of 12/13 March -  The activity in the crater was visible intermittently from 23:20 until sunrise this morning.

Night of 06/07 March -  The active hotspots on the lavadome were easily visible on last nights images from sunset until 03:00 this morning, when the clouds rolled in again.

Night of 05/06 March -  The views from the Volcanocam this morning shows clear views of a snow covered Mount St Helens. The view last night was also relatively clear, with good views of the active area of the lavadome.

Night of 04/05 March -  The activity on the lavadome was intermittently visible through breaks in the clouds last night. There were no major outbursts and the level of seismic activity remains low.

Night of 03/04 March -  The winter storms have taken a brief respite and we had good views of the crater throughout last night. The hotspot on the top of the lavadome, that has been present for several months, is still active and was the main feature visible on last nights images.
