This possible UFO was caught on the Mount St. Helens Webcam on the afternoon of October 20, 2004. It was sighted just above the new lava dome in the crater, just minutes after the prevalent steam plumes suddenly stopped. This happened at approximately 1:30 PM as stated on the webcam photo. My theory is that the UFO entered the crater, and perhaps the mountain itself and did something to halt the eruption of steam. Before this object appeared, the steam plume was building in height and size. The image is updated every 5 minutes with a 5 minute delay, so a lot could have happened between images, and there is no way to know whether the UFO is entering or leaving the location in the image.
The image was not modified or enhanced except for resizing, and creating an enlarged insert of the crater with color saturation boosted, and sharpness enhanced. The "UFO" was not added by me, but was on the photo captured to disk by the webcam.
