Don Jensen, who has been featured many times in my blog for his amazing time lapse photography, has released what might be his largest project to date.
It's sad that something so beautiful has to be so destructive...
Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti snapped these photos of Super Typhoon Maysak as it swirled in the western Pacific Ocean earlier this week. The photos show a pronounced eye center of the storm that at the time was a Category 5 storm -- the top rung of the Saffir-Simpson Wind Scale.
Editor's note: Didn't get to see the lunar eclipse? Check out what you missed in our Blood Moon photo gallery!
SEATTLE -- Usually Saturdays are made for sleeping in but if you want to get up super early this Saturday, you might just catch a lunar eclipse.
Scientists expect totality - when the full moon is completely obscured by Earth's shadow - to last just several minutes, beginning at 4:57 a.m. PDT. Most of the eclipsed moon should appear reddish-orange.
SEATTLE -- Some of the people on their way into Seattle Wednesday evening got quite the hello from Mother Nature as lightning struck two different jets as they approached Sea-Tac Airport.
University of Washington student Owen Craft was out in the University District trying to film lightning strikes as a thunderstorm moved through and caught the two massive bolts as they passed through the planes' fuselage.
"I was stunned for a second because I couldn't believe what I just saw," Craft said. "After the second (plane) got hit, I knew I was on to something spectacular!"
