Birth of a dome 3 - 198010LJW

Birth of the Dome 3: The next morning (October 19, 1980) light reflecting off the steam cloud and into the crater revealed a dark mass on the floor of the crater. This was the beginning of the dome, which periodically has grown to the dome we now see (2014). There were several earlier domes created by the volcano, but they were all blasted apart by eruptions.
