Welcome back steelclaw32,

I'm so happy to know that you're on the mend after your recent illness.

Here's a picture that should make any man feel good:

And another one for good measure:

My thanks to you TBLightning, your kind indeed, so how'd do you like this? Just for you.

It's says here.."Astronomers combined ultraviolet images of Saturn's southern polar region with visible-light images of the planet and its rings to make this picture. The auroral display appears blue because of the glow of ultraviolet light. In reality, the aurora would appear red to an observer at Saturn because of the presence of glowing hydrogen in the atmosphere. Credit: NASA, ESA, J. Clarke (Boston University), and Z. Levay (STScI)"

Again my thanks to you. :)

To quote Aristitle, "In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous".

This is the age to live in, at least as far as space exploration is concerned. No fear of what's out there; just a pure search for knowledge. Scientific discovery around every turn.

Thanks for the great pics, Steelclaw32. They never cease to remind me of just how amazing the universe is.

And Mbwun, Krista, and the rest of you, for reminding me of how beautiful our planet is right now. It's a shame that future generations may not be able to see it quite like we do.

Mbwun, I've looked at that picture of the bowling blonde about three times now and I've only just now noticed that her drawers are down around her ankles! :lol:

EZ Rhino,

I hosted it to another image-hosting website where it didn't get
automatically sized down. Just click on this thumbnail and you'll
see that the two men in the background have priceless expressions.

And TBLightning492,

That last lightning picture you posted - WOW!!! It looks like an
upside-down Christmas Tree. That's just fantastic!

I've posted the images using thumbnails only because I'm trying to conserve bandwith for poor Eric. We're probably driving him up a wall. :oops: :lol: He's such an accommodating chap.

excellent pictures! it reminded me of a webpage i saw a short time ago...

http://www.crh.noaa.gov/pub/ltg/plane_japan.php

"Plane Being Struck by a Lightning Flash"

the imagery isn t very good. it shows a still of the strike, the strike taking place, and a slo-mo of the strike.

I was browsing through some new 3-d animated screensavers and I came across one that reminded me of this thread...

http://www.screensavers.com/Home/3-D/Animated+Screensaver/Nature/Solar+System/index.html?SS_ID=12013_13675_14217_97112

To get the full effect you'd have to download it and watch for a bit before it harasses you to register it. I was impressed enough that I went ahead and bought the damn thing...

Basically you are orbiting through our solar system, locking onto a planet (with all its vital information) and then you go into orbit around that planet for a minute, seeing its moons and atmosphere, and then slip back into the solar system to head to a new planet. It was very enthralling...

Anyway, if anyone is interested it is worth checking out.
