APOD: Ash and Lightning above an Icelandic Volcano (2014 Apr 20) Image Credit & Copyright: Sigurður Stefnisson http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140420.html Explanation: Why did a picturesque 2010 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 above during the second eruption, lightning bolts illuminate ash pouring out of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. http://www.stefnisson.com/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140420 #APOD

APOD: The El Gordo Massive Galaxy Cluster (2014 Apr 22) Image Credit: NASA, ESA, J. Jee (UC Davis) et al. http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140422.html Explanation: It is bigger than a bread box. In fact, it is much bigger than all bread boxes put together. Galaxy cluster ACT-CL J0102-4915 is one of the largest and most massive objects known. Dubbed "El Gordo", the seven billion light years (z = 0.87) distant galaxy cluster spans about seven million light years and holds the mass of a million billion Suns. The above image of El Gordo is a composite of a visible light image from the Hubble Space Telescope, an X-ray image from the Chandra Observatory showing the hot gas in pink, and a computer generated map showing the most probable distribution of dark matter in blue, computed from gravitational lens distortions of background galaxies. Almost all of the bright spots are galaxies. The blue dark matter distribution indicates that the cluster is in the middle stages of a collision between two large galaxy clusters. A careful inspection of the image will reveal a nearly vertical galaxy that appears unusually long. That galaxy is actually far in the background and has its image stretched by the gravitational lens action of the massive cluster. http://hubblesite.org/news/2014/22 http://chandra.si.edu/photo/2014/elgordo/ http://dx.doi.org/10.1088/0004-637X/785/1/20 http://arxiv.org/abs/1309.5097 Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140422 #APOD
