NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day is the internet’s greatest source of desktop pictures. It by itself justifies the entire technology of RSS. Somehow we’ve gone more than 250 posts here on NS without slapping up something from APOD for you, so that ends right now. This is a photo of the Mount Tiede volcano in Spain, taken by Juan Carlos Casado.
The volcano is the large, triangular shadow in the background. APOD’s writeup talks about how the volcano casts such a triangular shadow even though it’s not really shaped like that at all. And that’s all well and good, but can we talk about how gorgeous this shot is?
- Are these colors even possible?
- Saw that.
- “What the flying fuck?”
