Tonga's doing a little remodeling

Underwater Volcano Tonga
Originally uploaded by roan lavery.
Near Tonga, last week, a volcano exploded with an earth-shattering kaboom from below the sea.

I love the shapes and drama of the black, white, and grey of the ash, steam, and other ejecta.'s The Big Picture has some pictures that made my heart pound. I actually made a squeak when I saw #10.

There's no real evidence at this point that the volcano is related to today's quake, and it almost certainly isn't.


I love this planet. This is an awesome planet.
