Most Dramatic Photo Ever Taken From Space

June 26, 2009

OMG!  Another reason you too should be signed up for Space Weather!

Perfect timing. On June 12th, just as Russia’s Sarychev Peak volcano was erupting for the first time in 20 years, the International Space Station flew directly overhead. Astronauts had their camera ready and snapped one of the most dramatic Earth-science photos ever taken from space.

    One reason why this blog is superior to so many others–aside from the author’s vaulable perspective–is that here one can often find notations of images like this volcano. I would have never seen this if it were not brought to my attention here. Thanks. My little trogs were certainly fascinated by the image, the NASA website it took us to, and other strings of curiosity it inspired.
