nicolás villalobos, chile. free thinker. this tlog is about science, nature, culture and arts.
I shot this with my Canon 7D over a fifteen minute period during the partial solar eclipse on May 10th, 2013, viewable from Sydney, Australia (obviously sped up in post into a thirty second clip). You can even see the eclipse itself in the lens flare when the sun is halfway across the sky.
Papua New Guinea’s Manam Volcano released a thin, faint plume on June 16, 2010, as clouds clustered at the volcano’s summit. The Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite took this picture the same day. Rivulets of brown rock interrupt the carpet of green vegetation on the volcano’s slopes. Opaque white clouds partially obscure the satellite’s view of Manam. The clouds may result from water vapor from the volcano, but may also have formed independent of volcanic activity. The volcanic plume appears as a thin, blue-gray veil extending toward the northwest over the Bismarck Sea.
Located 13 kilometers (8 miles) off the coast of mainland Papua New Guinea, Manam forms an island 10 kilometers (6 miles) wide. It is a stratovolcano. The volcano has two summit craters, and although both are active, most historical eruptions have arisen from the southern crater.

This was worth getting up for this morning.
6.10am in Darwin, Australia the solar eclipse appeared with a burst of golden light.
Nice way to begin a day.
