Glass Gem Corn was a long lost variety which was deposited by a seedsman at Seeds Trust. In 2011, Bill McDormann, president of Seeds Trust decided to grow them. When he saw the result of the glass gem seed corn, he was absolutely amazed and posted photos of the corn on the Internet and went viral in May 2012 with a post on the social networking site Reddit which was then picked-up by dozens of other social media outlets. Currently, there is insufficient supply for marketing. #Corn #Glass_Gem

Asperatus Clouds Over New Zealand by Witta Priester, www.flickr.com/... apod.nasa: Although their cause is presently unknown, such unusual atmospheric structures, do not appear to be harbingers of meteorological doom. Known as Undulatus asperatus clouds, they can be stunning in appearance, unusual in occurrence, are relatively unstudied, and may even be a new type of cloud. Thanks to wittap for allowing us to share her amazing image! #Clouds #Undulatus_asperatus

Antelope Canyon was formed by erosion of Navajo Sandstone, primarily due to flash flooding and secondarily due to other sub-aerial processes. Over time the passageways have been eroded away, making the corridors deeper and smoothing hard edges in such a way as to form characteristic 'flowing' shapes in the rock.
