Photo reblogged from Archie McPhee's Endless Geyser of AWESOME! with 357 notes

archiemcphee:

Lightning is awesome and today the Department of Awesome Natural Phenomena presents a form of lightning we’d never heard of before: blue jet lightning. This is a form of upper-atmospheric lightning, believed to be electrically induced forms of luminous plasma. It’s also known as a transient luminous event (or TLE) because the various types of electrical-discharge phenomena in the upper atmosphere lack several characteristics of the more familiar tropospheric lightning.
This stunning photo of blue jet lightning was captured by pilot and photographer Thijs Bors while flying over the Northern Territory of Australia during a thunderstorm. Blue jet lightning typically occurs in a narrow cone, projecting from the top of cumulonimbus clouds above a thunderstorm to the lowest levels of the ionosphere 40 to 50 km (25 to 30 miles) above the earth.

Something for this month’s Nautilus that accompanies a story about a man’s first day of death.  I’m a big fan of Nautilus, so a big thank you goes out to AD Len Small for the opportunity to be included in the magazine.

Hand colored Akira page by creator Katsuhiro Otomo, serving as an example/color guide for Steve Oliff, who colored the Epic(MARVEL) Comics edition of Akira.
"You don’t have to think about it, just do it."
That’s real talk.

This is my favorite thing.
