This one reminds me of home. I grew up on the edge of the Thunder Basin National Grassland, which is well named. :-)

Sapphire Mystique by Willie Huang 

Each year old caves melt away and white new ones are created. This beautiful vibrant blue cave was tucked back near the mountainside and radiated with some of the most vivid blues I have ever seen. Inside, the cave was an icy blue heaven with shiny scalloped walls, dripping water, and a stream running through the center of the cave. The ice caves of Mendenhall deserve to be one of the must-see locations.

Equipment: Sony A7r, Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 VC

Skywatchers: Don't miss a true celestial treasure—the stunning Swan Nebula—and more in this week's night sky.

APOD: Milky Way and Aurora over Antarctica (2015 Jul 27)

Image Credit & Copyright: LI Hang

It has been one of the better skies of this long night. In parts of Antarctica, not only is it winter, but the Sun can spend weeks below the horizon. At China's Zhongshan Station, people sometimes venture out into the cold to photograph a spectacular night sky. The featured image from one such outing was taken in mid-July, just before the end of this polar night. Pointing up, the wide angle lens captured not only the ground at the bottom, but at the top as well. In the foreground is a colleague also taking pictures. In the distance, a spherical satellite receiver and several windmills are visible. Numerous stars dot the night sky, including Sirius and Canopus. Far in the background, stretching overhead from horizon to horizon, is the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy. Even further in the distance, visible as extended smudges near the top, are the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, satellite galaxies near our huge Milky Way Galaxy.

Ripple at Edge of the Milky Way --"Reveals Veil of Dark Matter Cloaking a Dwarf Galaxy"

http://bit.ly/1eq90cx

A ripple in the outskirts of the Milky Way—and a hunch—led Rochester Institute of Technology astrophysicist Sukanya Chakrabarti to a previously undetected dwarf galaxy hidden under a veil of dark matter. Now Chakrabarti is refining her technique to uncover dwarf galaxies and understand dark matter by simulating the evolutionary histories of galactic disks, rich in atomic hydrogen, and their satellite populations.

Chakrabarti’s study on these overlapping regions found in spiral galaxies, like the Milky Way, is funded by a three-year $325,053 grant from the National Science Foundation. Her research seeks to solve an astrophysical conundrum dubbed “the missing satellites problem,” in which theoretical simulations that predict an abundance of satellite galaxies are unsupported by observational data.

At first, I had a very poor experience with a seemingly uncaring and bureaucratic agency. Then some good people who work at Austin Energy stepped up and took care of my issue. So there are good people there, and I'll adjust my rating accordingly.

I called at 10 AM. They said they'd be along between 5 and 7 PM. I called again at 6:30 PM. They said they'd be along between 7:30 and 8 PM. Now it's just about 9 PM, and I haven't seen or heard from them. And now I'm calling someone else. Get service anywhere else.

I ordered a pizza. The driver took it somewhere else and tried to give me someone else's pizza. Then he went and got my pizza (which had been in the hands of someone else, of course). I refused that, since who knows what may have been done to it. Then I called the store to reverse my credit card transaction. I waited on hold for 10 minutes and 53 seconds, only to have the phone system disconnect me. In the next call, I got someone who was clearly not too versed on the system. Who knows whether the transaction was actually reversed? So now I'll have to watch my credit card account for a couple days. Given that delivering the right pizza to the right address is more than they can do, I can find somewhere else to buy a pizza.
