The lightning eclipse

astronomypic.jpg

Ah nature, you amazing thing you.

While we often curse your tempestuous ways (rain again?), we also spend a fair portion of our time, with our jaws skimming the floor.

Case in point, this stupendous picture above. You allowed the very talented Chris Kotsiopoulos to capture an eclipse as well as an array of lightning bolts, without killing a single person.

The pic was taken from the Greek island of Ikaria at Pezi to capture the total lunar eclipse that happened on June 15th.

There's another fantastic picture that Chris took here.
