The sharp-eyed HiRISE camera aboard our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has sent home new views of the Curiosity rover and the InSight lander on the Martian surface. See details and more images at solarsystem.nasa.gov/news (link in our bio). These are just the latest examples of one robotic spacecraft photographing another in space. 🛰📸🛰 Swipe for some others.
Caught red-handed at the Red Planet: in a remarkable feat of planning, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and HiRISE teams captured Curiosity during its landing sequence, descending on its parachute, in 2012.
When the Opportunity rover fell silent after its long mission, it wasn’t the last time we saw the intrepid robotic geologist. HiRISE imaged its final resting place at the rim of Endeavour crater.
Lunar missions have achieved similar shots. In 2014, the LROC camera on our Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter captured our LADEE spacecraft — just a blur at the relative speed of 3,600 mph (1,600 meters per second) between the two spacecraft.
LROC has also photographed many landing sites on the Moon, including all the Apollo locations: https://go.nasa.gov/2MZDXbt
Volcanic lightning is an electrical discharge caused by a volcanic eruption, rather than from an ordinary thunderstorm. Volcanic lightning arises from colliding, fragmenting particles of volcanic ash (and sometimes ice) which generate static electricity within the volcanic plume. Volcanic eruptions have been referred to as dirty thunderstorms due to moist convection and ice formation that drive the eruption plume dynamics and can trigger volcanic lightning. But unlike ordinary thunderstorms, volcanic lightning can also occur before any ice crystals have formed in the ash cloud.
This amazing video edit "The Hidden Matrix" (A Matriz Oculta) was put together by my friend Renan Deztro from the RedPill YouTube Channel.
Electromagnetism is the Universal Force which composes All Matter, from Microcosm to Macrocosm.
This Force was known in atiquity as "The Flower of Life Pattern".
From this Overlapping Circles Grid, all Regular Polyhedrons arise — Which are the basis of the Geometry of All Atomic Elements of the Periodic Table.
This Archetypal Form is the Matrix of All Matter.
Atoms, Planets, Galaxies, and All Life springs from this Universal Pattern.

The Andromeda Galaxy (M31) is the closest spiral galaxy to us, and though it's gravitationally bound to the Milky Way, it's not the closest galaxy by far – being 2.5 million light years away. Andromeda is currently approaching our galaxy at a speed of about 110 kilometers per second. ...
