total eclipse...

The blood red moon: a lunar eclipse. Japanese people believe, that every time this omen comes up, it means something bad/demonic is about to occur.

In eclipse.

Thunderhead Cloud! No, it’s not an explosion or anything. That is just a cloud, looks amazing though. It’s called Thunderhead Cloud or a Cumulonimbus cloud, and the color which you can see in, is because of the sun rays falling through it. !!

A spectacular 'coronal mass ejection' following a solar flare has caused magnetic storms to create spectacular northern lights (Jan 2012)

Lenticular cloud, Russia. Captured just at the right moment, when the sun is directly striking the bottom of the cloud and light is refracted through the top of the cloud. It gives an amazing two-tone effect.


Solar eclipse from space...


My dad taught me about these when I was a child. From previous pinner: Not every cloud has a silver lining; this multi-coloured cloud looks as if a rainbow has formed high in the heavens. The phenomenom - called a sundog - happens when ice crystals appear in clouds and refract the sun's rays. Photographer Robert Arn captured the cloud in Heyworth, Illinois, America.
