APOD: A Supercell Thunderstorm Cloud Over Montana (2013 May 05) Image Credit & Copyright: Sean R. Heavey http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130505.html Explanation: Is that a spaceship or a cloud? Although it may seem like an alien mothership, it's actually a impressive thunderstorm cloud called a supercell. Such colossal storm systems center on mesocyclones -- rotating updrafts that can span several kilometers and deliver torrential rain and high winds including tornadoes. Jagged sculptured clouds adorn the supercell's edge, while wind swept dust and rain dominate the center. A tree waits patiently in the foreground. The above supercell cloud was photographed in July west of Glasgow, Montana, USA, caused minor damage, and lasted several hours before moving on. http://www.seanrheavey.com/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130505 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0505

APOD: Milky Way and Stone Tree (2013 Apr 29) Image Credit & Copyright: Daniel López (El Cielo de Canarias) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130429.html Explanation: What's that next to the Milky Way? An unusual natural rock formation known as Roque Cinchado or Stone Tree found on the Spanish Canary Island of Tenerife. A famous icon, Roque Cinchado is likely a dense plug of cooled volcanic magma that remains after softer surrounding rock eroded away. Majestically, the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy is visible arcing across the right of the above seven image panoramic mosaic taken during the summer of 2010. On the far right is the Teide volcano complete with a lenticular cloud hovering near its peak. http://www.elcielodecanarias.com/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130429 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0429
