"It’s these very conditions, where you have the combined factors of:

* high temperatures at the base with much cooler temperatures above it,
* ionized particles with turbulent airflow,
* a sooty, ashy, cloudy area where the air is highly conductive, and
* these three conditions sustained over a sufficient time with dark enough skies for photography,

that you’ve got the greatest chance to capture a volcanic lightning strike."

A volcanic eruption, lava, smoke, ash, and lightning, all captured in one unforgettable video by world-class astrophotographer César Cantú. Don't miss it!
This past week, the Colima volcano in Mexico erupted spectacularly. César Cantú captured it like never before.

I want people to remember that squeezing your toes in the sand can bring a smile to your face. I love acoustics, describing in my head the EQ of the waves crashing on the beach...
