Intense lightning storms mixed with ash clouds to electrify the night sky over Iceland's EyjafjallajA¶kull volcano on Sunday. A blast of white-hot lightning crackles over Iceland's EyjafjallajA¶kull volcano on Sunday. Italian photographer and scientist Marco Fulle flew at sunset on Sunday over Iceland's erupting EyjafjallajA¶kull volcano to capture this picture of purple lightning bolts streaking through the sky.Much of the lightning generated by the Iceland volcano is better termed long sparks, said the University of Florida's Uman. Fiery lava mixes with blue ash and golden lightning over the erupting EyjafjallajA¶kull volcano in an April 18, 2010, picture.The Iceland volcano's lightning is probably creating distinct symphony of sounds, said the University of Florida's Uman. Lightning pierces the erupting volcano's ash cloud in a National Geographic Your Shot photograph taken by Olivier Vandeginste on Sunday.Inhaling the tiny pieces of glassy sand and dust in the cloud can cause irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, say experts who advise Europeans to stay indoors when the ash begins to fall. In honor of April 18, we take a look at how science organizes and names speciesa€”sometimes with a sense of humor.
Mountains, wildlife, and wide open skies inspired more than great pictures for our photographer. Indonesiaa€™s Tambora eruption brought on a deadly spate of coolinga€”presaging the costs that come with sudden changes to climate. The eruption of Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano inspires the formation of a waterspout in this undated photo.Waterspouts can emerge the way traditional tornadoes do, but not always.
A Lake Michigan lighthouse takes the brunt of a frigid winter in Saint Joseph, Michigan.The southeastern shores of all of the Great Lakes often experience lake-effect snow. A funnel cloud rips through a trailer park near Cheyenne, Wyoming, in this undated photo.

Surfers ride a huge wave at Waimea Bay, Hawaii, during the 2009 Eddie Aikau memorial surf contest.To honor its fearless namesake, the competition is held only in extreme conditions.
Adding insult to injury, this dangerously large hail rode in on the coattails of a tornado that hit Joplin, Missouri, in 2011.Hail emerges from storm clouds only after repeatedly tumbling up and down within the cloud.
An Alabama store owner assesses the damage after Hurricane Frederic ravaged Dauphin Island, and his business, in 1979.The Category 3 storm made landfall on the evening of September 12 with winds recorded at 145 miles per hour and an up-to-15-foot storm surge. A tornado heads toward two cars on a country road near Campo, Colorado.Technically considered a part of thunderstorms, tornadoes can cover tens of miles of ground. Rain brings a double rainbow to the town to Puerto Natales in southern Chile.Rainbows are a simple, ordered display of visible light reflected off of water droplets in the atmosphere. A vessel makes its way across Drake Passage in what some scientists call the Southern Ocean between South America and Antarctica.The passage, which takes shipping vessels around Cape Horn at the tip of Chile and Argentina, is one of the most dangerous in the world.
The National Geographic Society aims to be an international leader for global conservation and environmental sustainability. See the source of the giant volcanic ash clouds that hung over much of northern Europe Thursday, grounding flights. Volcanic ash hangs over Iceland's EyjafjallajA¶kull volcano Thursday, three days after the volcano's latest eruption. Slopes of the EyjafjallajA¶kull volcano are seen from the air in a photo taken Wednesday by the Icelandic Coast Guard. Black rivers of meltwater mixed with volcanic ash are shown spreading from the erupting EyjafjallajA¶kull volcano in a photo taken Wednesday by the Icelandic Coast Guard.The latest eruption of the volcanoa€”which came to life March 20 after nearly 200 years (see pictures of the first eruption)a€”began on Tuesday.

A volcanic eruption and the eruption of light from charged particles in the atmosphere—called the Northern Lights—occur at the same time in Iceland. Finer particles can also penetrate deep into the lungs and cause breathing problems, particularly among those with respiratory issues like asthma or emphysema. The interaction of all of these elements creates an electrical charge that sparks lightning. Many are created when near-surface winds suddenly change direction under a cloud that is producing a growing updraft. The photographer snapped this shot from a quarter mile away before taking cover in his basement.These violent twisters form when the updrafts of air that supply storms with warm, humid air become a vortex, or high-speed whirlwind.
When individuals pledge to use less water in their own lives, our partners carry out restoration work in the Colorado River Basin. This new eruption, at a new vent, spurred the rapid melting of the 650-foot-thick (200-meter-thick) glacier, which lies on top of the vent. The island nation was created by volcanic activity and today has 35 active volcanoes, which provide the country with plentiful geothermal power.
