California lacking a year's worth of rain http://bit.ly/1LZgFfr

Cosmic convergence!

New Zealand's beloved Mt. Ruapehu and three galaxies (Milky Way, Large & Small Magellanic clouds) .

It looks as if Mt. Ruapehu is erupting ... but it's really light reflected by the low clouds near the mountain.

Photo taken June 23 by Manoj Kesavan.

Looked out the window, said "Whoa!".. or more like, "WHOA!!!"  Looking southeast at sunset. Luna County, New Mexico.  Monsoon makes the desert disappear.

Blue moon?  Elizabeth Crehan in Connecticut said she added "a nice, quiet blue hue" to this photo of Friday night's full moon.

US deserts wet until 8,200 years ago http://bit.ly/1MF6ptg

Research suggests that around 8,200 years ago, the climate of the American West began transitioning from a lush landscape to the desert terrain we know today.

Meanwhile, Greg Hogan in Georgia wrote that he was ... "having some fun with the blue moon idea……I blended the same image twice one with a blue tint, and one normal. :) "  

This is also Friday night's full moon,seen in a cloudy sky.
