APotD: 06/26/14 - Solitary Geyser & The Milky Way
This absolutely beautiful starscape, entitled “Solitary”, was captured by David Lane. The image was set over Solitary Geyser, which is located in Yellowstone National Park. Soaring above the Geyser are several Perseid meteors streaking through the sky. If you look closely, you can also see several satellite trails (two of them faintly cross paths): http://bit.ly/1sM1eQd

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 therising volcanic plume. Pictured above during the second eruption, lightning bolts illuminate ash pouring out of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano.
