Southern Milky Way 

by Greg Boratyn 

"Here is the beautiful Fitz Roy mountain in El Chaltén, Patagonia, Argentina. The place has virtually no light pollution and many stars are easily visible to human eyes. Exposing for 30 seconds (only 30 seconds) I was able to capture some southern Milky Way clouds as well. The mountain was illuminated by the rising Moon so it came out brighter than I expected. FYI, the bright spot in the center top is actually Andromeda Galaxy."

We were somewhere outside of Barstow, near the edge of the desert, when the catnip began to take hold

Lucid Dreams 

by Michael Shainblum Photography/Film/Timelapse 

Taken on Mount Figueroa in Santa Ynez, California. The coastal marine layer came in and diluted all the light pollution from Santa Barbara and Los Angeles, creating a very vivid galaxy.

Ash and Lightning above an Icelandic Volcano

Why did a picturesque 2010 volcanic eruption in Iceland create so much ash? Although the large ash plume was not unparalleled in its abundance, its location was particularly noticeable because it drifted across such well-populated areas. The Eyjafjallajökull volcano in southern Iceland began erupting on 2010 March 20, with a second eruption starting under the center of a small glacier on 2010 April 14. Neither eruption was unusually powerful. The second eruption, however, melted a large amount of glacial ice which then cooled and fragmented lava into gritty glass particles that were carried up with the rising volcanic plume. Pictured above during the second eruption, lightning bolts illuminate ash pouring out of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano.
