AMAZING PIC of Volcanic Lightning!!
« on: June 08, 2010, 04:20:56 am »


Found the image through Digg.com. It comes from http://blog.atmospheres.be/ which seems pretty cool. They have some very cool images of the Aurora Borealis.

    ... They have some very cool images of the Aurora Borealis.

    I count myself a lucky enough to have seen the Aurora Borealis first hand - from southern England no less!

    Sunspot activity is currently at its 11 year peak - which coincides with increased auroral activity - so even if you're at the lower latitudes, I'd recommend keeping an eye out when it's dark and clear.

    When you say "lower latitudes", I'm guessing you don't mean Los Angeles? ;D

    ^^lol - but it has been known to happen, or rare occasions. The problem is, with LA being so well lit up at night (I'm guessing - I've never been there, alas), if there was an aurora visible at that latitude, you'd probably not see it.

    Really beautiful.

    I was thinking about this as I was driving home from work today. Storm clouds with lightning were visible behind the mountains. Not as spectacular but still beautiful. :D
