Chaiten Star

Not taken by me but a cool pic of Chaiten in Chile erupting on May 2nd 2008. Sorry just thought it was awesome




It is awesome, and worthy of it's own thread.


What does everyone think was happening there? A regular storm above the eruption and a lightning strike went ballistic trying to go through the pyrotastic? cloud. Reminded me of some of the Hubble shots of stars being formed.


Also reminds me of references in ancient texts & tales of how the skies turned black or the sun disappeared. We really are completely insignificant compared to that. Imagine for a moment living within a few miles of that, you'd cetainly get a different perspective of life very rapidly.
