Planets of the Solar System: Tilts and Spins 
May 20, 2019 

How does your favorite planet spin? Does it spin rapidly around a nearly vertical axis, or horizontally, or backwards? The featured video animates NASA images of all eight planets in our Solar System to show them spinning side-by-side for an easy comparison. 

In the time-lapse video, a day on Earth -- one Earth rotation -- takes just a few seconds. Jupiter rotates the fastest, while Venus spins not only the slowest (can you see it?), but backwards. The inner rocky planets, across the top, most certainly underwent dramatic spin-altering collisions during the early days of the Solar System. 

The reasons why planets spin and tilt as they do remains a topic of research with much insight gained from modern computer modeling and the recent discovery and analysis of hundreds of exoplanets: planets orbiting other stars.

Ash and Lightning above an Icelandic Volcano 
May 12, 2019 

Why did a picturesque volcanic eruption in Iceland create so much ash? Although the large ash plume was not unparalleled in its abundance, its location was particularly noticeable because it drifted across such well-populated areas. 

The Eyjafjallajökull volcano in southern Iceland began erupting on 2010 March 20, with a second eruption starting under the center of a small glacier on 2010 April 14. Neither eruption was unusually powerful. The second eruption, however, melted a large amount of glacial ice which then cooled and fragmented lava into gritty glass particles that were carried up with the rising volcanic plume. 

Pictured here during the second eruption, lightning bolts illuminate ash pouring out of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano.

There is a road that connects the Northern to the Southern Cross but you have to be at the right place and time to see it. The road is the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy; the place, in this case, is dark Laguna Cejar in Salar de Atacama of Northern Chile; and the time was in early October, just after sunset.

The Moon slid through Earth's shadow on January 31, 2018 in a total lunar eclipse. In this time-lapse sequence from Portal, Arizona, the partial eclipse starts with the Moon high in the western sky. The eclipse total phase lasted about 76 minutes, and ended after the dark, reddened Moon set below the horizon.
