Two Places You Like

HawaiiIn Hawaii, the volcano is still erupting near the parking lot where we were able to park last summer. But now, no one is allowed to go there. You can only stand on the other side, near the lodge or near the observatory. This picture is one of the many they post each week -- it shows you how amazing the volcanic eruption looks. By the light of the stars just before moon rise and by the glow of the lava, you can see the landscape and the plume of hot ash erupting from the volcano.

AntarcticaWe have never been to Antarctica, but some of the researchers there have a wonderful blog that I wanted to let you know about. The researchers took some photos of snow, mountains, and penguins from a plane a few days ago: this is one example. Check it out!

The Antarctic blog shows several new pictures today of the sun setting. What's important is that it is late spring here, so in Antarctica the winter is starting. After a few more sunsets, one day there will be no sun at all. It will be dark or almost dark for a couple of months!
