Mount St. Helens, 30 years on

Thirty years ago yesterday, Mount St. Helens blew its top with remarkable force, showering the United States with ash.  You can see some great imagery of the eruption and its aftermath from the Big Picture as well as a timelapse view of the volcano over the course of 30 years from 1979 to 2009 from the Landsat satellites, courtesy of the Goddard Spaceflight Center:
