(Volc)ano Mountain High Enough (♪)

Volcanoes from space - now that's Wohba material. So what about this amazing image. of the Sarychev Peak Eruption in the Kuril Islands a few days ago - taken with a digital camera aboard the ISS (International Space Station). As fate would have it, the ISS was in the right place at the right time for an image that few have ever seen.

Top Men are intrigued by the pillowy clouds atop the ash plume, as well as the circular parting of the clouds around the event.

Maybe next time we'll get a video.

Galactic Time Lapse

Nothing like a star party to enlighten us on a galactic level. Top Men were amazed by this time lapse of the night sky which reveals our own Milky Way galaxy. Top Men also like the fact that the teaming masses can do stuff like this.

Cliff Chase

Top Men and Top Women were amazed by the story these photos told.

Top Women were also VERY grossed out!


Along the jagged cliffs, high above a closed road in Glacier National Park a grand chase took place. The cougar was so close to a grand meal. The bighorn sheep was so close to a grand escape. But the photos tell the end of the story.

Here is the text from friends (thanks Stenersens) of friends (Hendrickson) of friends (Veis) (ad infinitum?) who sent the photos...

Background: Daniel was visiting a friend in Montana and touring through Glacier National Park. They were hiking up a CLOSED ROAD when they came upon this scene. It is evident that the mountain lion and bighorn sheep were fighting on the mountain and fell to their immediate death sometime during the struggle. Pay special attention to the mouth of the mountain it still has sheep hide in its mouth!!!!
