Still waiting for an Autobot with this as his/her alt mode
photos of sakurajima, the most active volcano in japan, by (click pic) takehito miyatake (previously featured) and martin rietze. volcanic storms can rival the intensity of massive supercell thunderstorms, but the source of the charge responsible for this phenomenon remains hotly debated.
in the kind of storm clouds that generate conventional lightning, ice particles and soft hail collide, building up positive and negative charges, respectively. they separate into layers, and the charge builds up until the electric field is high enough to trigger lightning.
but the specific mechanism by which particles of differing charges are separated in the ash cloud is still unknown. lightning has been observed between the eruption plume and the volcano right at the start of an eruption, suggesting that there are processes that occur inside the volcano to lead to charge separation.
volcanic lightning could yield clues about the earth’s geological past, and could answer questions about the beginning of life on our planet. volcanic lightning could have been the essential spark that converted water, hydrogen, ammonia, and methane molecules present on a primeval earth into amino acids, the building blocks of life.

this is my favorite gif ever
I was about to scroll past but then I got it.
Lavender Town theme performed by full orchestra
I thought they couldn’t make it anymore terrifying. I was wrong.
My sister rolled her eyes at me when I said the Lavender Song is creepy cause it was a song from Pokemon. I played for her and she got really bothered by it.
the hills are alive. they are here. someone stop them
