1. Anvil cloud.

Literally exploding upward. What a beauty. Helluva' photograph.

2. Nice capture!

We had something like that pass over yesterday but it was so huge, like bigger than half the county, that I couldn't get a good shot of it in one frame.

10. So beautiful, and so dangerous

It's that bright because the sky is clear behind the photographer with plenty of light to illuminate the cloud, which is part of the storm formation to the left and rear. This is exactly the kind of situation that spawns tornadoes. Which I'm sure why our storm chaser was here to get the shot, but it's not really a place you want to be unless you're a daredevil.

26. I have an aerospace buddy who worked on JWST for what must be all of those 30 years.

I dropped out of aerospace optics on one of those regularly scheduled layoffs. Found other things to work on. Was fun while it lasted. JWST is literally out of this world amazing.

23. It's enough to make one wonder if the idea of Armageddon isn't so far-fetched.
