Aurora over White Dome Geyser

Sometimes both heaven and Earth erupt. Colorful aurorae erupted unexpectedly earlier October 2012, with green aurora appearing near the horizon and brilliant bands of red aurora blooming high overhead. A bright +Moon lit the foreground of this picturesque scene, while familiar stars could be seen far in the distance. With planning, the careful astrophotographer shot this image mosaic in the field of White Dome Geyser in Yellowstone National Park in the western USA. Sure enough, just after midnight, White Dome erupted -- spraying a stream of water and vapor many meters into the air. Geyser water is heated to steam by scalding magma several kilometers below, and rises through rock cracks to the surface. About half of all known geysers occur in Yellowstone National Park. Although the geomagnetic storm that created these aurorae has since subsided, eruptions of White Dome Geyser continue about every 30 minutes.

On a day when we've been so harshly reminded of what the worst of human behavior can look like, this is an encouraging reminder of what the best of human resolve can accomplish. 43 years ago today, a man walked on the Moon for the first time. To this day, it's still one of the most incredible things I've ever witnessed.

My wife was referred here for an eye evaluation following a stroke, and we had a very similar experience to the reviewer above. Only AFTER they performed a series of (expensive) diagnostic tests did they bother to inform her that her insurance would not cover the charges. I personally wonder how much extra money they rake in during the course of a year by using this "process".
