"Night on a Spooky Planet 
Image Credit & CopyrightStéphane Vetter (Nuits sacrées)

Explanation: What spooky planet is this? Planet Earth of course, on a dark and stormy night in 2013 at Hverir, a geothermally active area along the volcanic landscape in northeastern IcelandGeomagnetic storms produced the auroral display in the starry night sky while ghostly towers of steam and gas venting from fumaroles danced against the eerie greenish light. Tonight, there is also a chance for geomagnetic storms triggered by recent solar activity, so high-latitude skygazers should beware. Ghostly shapes may dance in your neighborhood pretty soon, too."

Here is an odd-looking feature that tickles the imagination. How did it form, of what is it made, what will it take to find answers?

"Unusual Mountain Ahuna Mons on Asteroid Ceres 
Image Credit: Dawn MissionNASAJPL-CaltechUCLA, MPS/DLR/IDA

Explanation: What created this unusual mountain? Ahuna Mons is the largest mountain on the largest known asteroid in our Solar SystemCeres, which orbits our Sun in the main asteroid belt between Mars and JupiterAhuna Mons, though, is like nothing that humanity has ever seen before. For one thing, its slopes are garnished not with old craters but young vertical streaks. One hypothesis holds that Ahuna Mons is an ice volcano that formed shortly after a large impact on the opposite side of the dwarf planet loosened up the terrain through focused seismic waves. The bright streaks may be high in reflective salt, and therefore similar to other recently surfaced material such as visible in Ceres' famous bright spots. The featured double-height digital image was constructed from surface maps taken of Ceres last year by the robotic Dawn mission.

I'm doing independent study of physical Anthropology and Biology until I can afford to go back to college for it. Hope that counts! I love to learn and hope to do just that with like minded people =)

I've just joined this group, and I'm sorry to see it's not more active. I'm a geology student at the University of London.

perhaps we should just get rid of this group, as there is already a "physicists" group which seems far more active. and it appears that everyone who is in here is already in the other group.

Hey everyone. I like the pic.
