DescriptionYesterday, perhaps being convinced of the sincerity of my love, Aurora had finally decided to reveal herself just a little more. And what manifestations they were! Here is just one of them. What shall we call it? A giant steaming cup of some divine brew? or celestial ikebana? or some surrealistic astro-art capable of providing inspiration even to Salvador Dali? Word just fail you.

DescriptionThe elusive green flash. Last week I saw the green flash by the first time. The day after I had a first picture.. the next 3 days I manage to repeat and improve the pictures, even making a time lapse video of the green flash. Seems it not so elusive after all, here in Tenerife and this picture was taken on Christmast day. http://www.flickr.com/photos/40046536@N03/6570609393/in/photostream

DescriptionThis is a color photo of a Gigantic Jet that appeared over a very electrically active storm near the center of the island of Puerto Rico.I used a photo taken just 8 seconds before the jet appeared and then another just 8 seconds after in this animated version to show how the sky looked before and after this event. The red plume above the blue plume is caused by the electrically charged molecules interacting with nitrogen in the upper atmosphere.
