O Pele - A huge bubble of lava bursts from
a lava tube system that has collapsed, allowing ocean water to rush in
and interact with the molten lava. Hawaii Volcanoes - the Photography of

Version) Credit: NASA/ GSFC/ NOAA/ USGS - Explanation: This newly
released digital portrait of our planet is reminiscent of the Apollo-era
pictures of the "big blue marble" Earth from space. To create
it, researchers at Goddard Space Flight Center's Laboratory for Atmospheres
combined data from a Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite
(GOES), the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS), and the Polar
Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES) with a USGS elevation model of
Earth's topography. Stunningly detailed, the planet's western hemisphere
is cast so that heavy vegetation is green and sparse vegetation is yellow,
while the heights of mountains and depths of valleys have been exaggerated
by 50 times to make vertical relief visible. Hurricane Linda is the dramatic
storm off North America's west coast. And what about the Moon? The lunar
image was reconstructed from GOES data and artistically rescaled for this
visualization.Authors & editors: Robert Nemiroff (MTU) & Jerry

River - Where once stood a forest a few weeks earlier, a river
of lava makes its way down the side of Kilauea Volcano. This is a very
temporary scene, as a crust quickly forms on the surface of the lava forming
a tube, which insulates the lava.
from Kilauea Volcano pours into the Pacific Ocean, exploding as
it enters the water.

- Ruby Beach Olympic National Park, WA With a unique combination
of glacier clad mountain peaks, low elevation temperate rain forests and
some of the most remote stretches of wilderness beach in the lower 48,
Olympic National Park contains unparalleled scenic diversity. As a sunset
symbolizes the end of the day, I chose this image of a sunset from Ruby
Beach to conclude this Showcase. Thank you for stopping by, I hope you
enjoyed this exhibit and that it inspires you to visit your National Parks
and support legislation and park policy that will further protect and preserve
these very special places for the enjoyment of our children and grand children.

Remnant E0102-72 from Radio to X-Ray Credit: X-ray (NASA/CXC/SAO);
optical (NASA/HST); radio: (ACTA) Explanation: Not all stars form a big
Q after they explode. The shape of supernova remnant E0102-72, however,
is giving astronomers a clue about how tremendous explosions disperse elements
and interact with surrounded gas. The above image is a composite of three
different photographs in three different types of light. Radio waves, shown
in red, trace high-energy electrons spiraling around magnetic field lines
in the shock wave expanding out from the detonated star. Optical light,
shown in green, traces clumps of relatively cool gas that includes oxygen.
X-rays, shown in blue, show relatively hot gas that has been heated to
millions of degrees. This gas has been heated by an inward moving shock
wave that has rebounded from a collision with existing or slower moving
gas. This big Q currently measures 40 light-years across and was found
in our neighboring SMC galaxy. Perhaps we would know even more if we could
buy a vowel. Authors & editors: Robert Nemiroff (MTU) & Jerry Bonnell

Explanation: The past week brought some spectacular aurora to northern
skies. These aurorae were caused by a large interplanetary shock wave that
exploded from the Sun on April 4. When the shock wave reached the Earth
on April 6, the resulting aurora could be seen in clear skies as far south
as North Carolina. As the aurorae occurred high in the Earth's atmosphere,
they were accompanied by an unusual alignment of planets far in the background.
Pictured above that night, an unusual multicolored auroral display graced
the skies above the domes of the Brno Observatory in the Czech Republic.

Dunes Death Valley National Park, CA - Death Valley is a land of
extremes. Elevation in the park ranges from -282 feet at Badwater,
the lowest point in the western hemisphere, to 11,049 feet at the summit
of Telescope Peak. In the Summer, temperatures at the park's lower
elevations often top 120 degrees, with a North American record of 134 degrees
recorded on July 10, 1913. Death Valley is also a vast area of stark
beauty. It has long been a popular tourist destination, but Death
Valley has only recently gained National Park Status. On October
31, 1994, the boundaries of Death Valley National Monument were expanded
to enclose over 3.3 million acres and the name was officially changed to
Death Valley National Park, thus creating the largest US National Park
outside of Alaska. Death Valley has several dune fields. This
image was taken as the first rays of morning light grazed the dunes near
Hubble With NGC 6751 Credit: A. Hajian (USNO)
et al., Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/ AURA), NASA Explanation: Planetary
nebulae do look simple, round, and planet-like in small telescopes. But
images from the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope have become well known
for showing these fluorescent gas shrouds of dying Sun-like stars to possess
a staggering variety of detailed symmetries and shapes. This composite
color Hubble image of NGC 6751 is a beautiful example of a classic planetary
nebula with complex features and was selected to commemorate the tenth
anniversary of Hubble in orbit. The colors were chosen to represent the
relative temperature of the gas - blue, orange, and red indicating the
hottest to coolest gas. Winds and radiation from the intensely hot central
star (140,000 degrees Celsius) have apparently created the nebula's streamer-like
features. The nebula's actual diameter is approximately 0.8 light-years
or about 600 times the size of our solar system. NGC 6751 is 6,500 light-years
distant in the constellation Aquila. Authors & editors: Robert Nemiroff
