Here are two amazing pics from opposite ends of the world, neither of which are mine (the pics or the ends of the world):
Firstly a clever composite image of the recent total solar eclipse taken in Svalbard by Thanakrit Santikunaporn (not even joking).
Here’s a quick explanation of what was done and what it saw. Amazing.
And then this of the eruption of Calbuco, everyone’s favourite Chilean volcano, from Marcelo Utreras:
Here are some details (and more, less good, photos) about that. Your carbon footprint offsetting for the next two hundred years is now rendered utterly pointless, right there.
But on a more positive note: well done, great photo takers. We are impressed.
