The Campo Colorado #tornado #cloud #storm
"When the shimmering vapors gathered the evergreen fragrance, a swirling slow motion hurricane occurred before the bubble burst . . . then the bubble quickly reformed as the fragrance, now a colorful sound wave, streamed through the air like a brief comet with a rainbow tail." page 31 'The Color and Sound of Fragrance' (Iceland Aurora)

This is NOT a lightening tornado! It's the eruption of Chile’s Chaitén volcano. The plume of ash is thought to generate enough static electricity to cause what is called a “dirty thunderstorm” in the same way that colliding ice particles provide the juice for regular thunderstorms. Scary but beautiful at the same. #nature #science #inspiration #storm
While this photo is often described as a tornado that hit in Georgia in 2012 it is NOT that. This powerful photograph is a real photo but does not show a tornado that struck Georgia, or anywhere else. This photo shows a volcanic eruption in Chile of the Chaitin volcano on May 3, 2008. Chaitin erupted at night during a storm ... the upward flow of ash, gases, etc. reacted with the lightning to cause the hellish lightning within the eruption flow itself.
Mother Nature at her awesome best. Makes for a spectacular photo, but I don't think I'd like to be nearby when a lightning struck tornado rocks by!!!

Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a single dust mite among skin scales in housedust WASH YOUR BED SHEETS! Lolol you can't completely get rid of them. It's okay though.
They may look like monsters from a horror film, but these tiny creatures inhabit our homes, clothes and even our bodies. A new book, 'Micro Monsters', showcases some of the planet's most horrible insects and microscopic beasts. British author and trained zoologist, Tom Jackson, spent three months compiling the images in the book. Scientists coated the tiny creatures in gold, froze them in liquid nitrogen and fired a beam of electrons at the subjects from a scanning electron microscope to reveal the incredible detail Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a single dust mite among skin scales in housedust

Hand-knapped California Rainbow Obsidian blades
Spectacular rainbow obsidian blades (Davis Creek, California material). Greatest length, about 13”. Private Collection. Obsidian is a type of volcanic glass that produces a much finer blade than conventional steel. It is ideal for applications where an extremely fine cutting action is required or where trace metals from ordinary blades cannot be tolerated.

This broad expanse of glowing gas and dust presents a bird-like visage to astronomers from planet Earth, suggesting its popular moniker - The Seagull Nebula. This portrait of the cosmic bird covers a 1.6 degree wide swath across the plane of the Milky Way, near the direction of Sirius, alpha star of the constellation Canis Major.

April 2010 Planetary Nebula Mz3: The Ant Nebula Credit: R. Sahai (JPL) et al., Hubble Heritage Team, ESA, NASA Planetary nebula Mz3 is being cast off by a star similar to our Sun that is, surely, round. Why then would the gas that is streaming away create an ant-shaped nebula that is distinctly not round? Clues might include the high 1000-kilometer per second speed of the expelled gas, the light-year long length of the structure, & the magnetism of the star visible above @ the nebula's center.

In this series (see other pics) astronomers selected the top 10 most amazing pictures taken by the Hubble space telescope in the last 16 years. "...they illustrate that our universe is not only deeply strange, but also almost impossibly beautiful." Michael Hanlon/AH (Nov 25th, 2006) . After correcting an initial problem with the lens, when the Hubble Space Telescope was first launched in 1990, the floating astro-observatory began to relay back to Earth, incredible snapshots of the "final frontier" it was perusing. Recently, astronauts voted on the top photographs taken by Hubble, in its 16-year journey so far. Remarking in the article from the Daily Mail, reporter Michael Hanlon says the photos "illustrate that our universe is not only deeply strange, but also almost impossibly beautiful." In this photo, the Ant Nebula, a cloud of dust and gas whose technical name is Mz3, resembles an ant when observed using ground-based telescopes. The nebula lies within our galaxy between 3,000 and 6,000 light years from Earth.
A Hubble Space Telescope image released February 1, 2001 of the so-called "ant nebula" (Menzel 3, or Mz3) reveals the "ant's" body as a pair of fiery lobes protruding from a dying star. The Hubble images directly challenge old ideas about the last stages in the lives of stars. (Photo by NASA/Newsmakers/Getty Images)
