Amazing Photos

From my college friend Brian’s blog, a link to some incredible before/after photos of the tsunami damage in Indonesia. In many photos the buildings in the before images are completely gone in the after. There are even some places where the land was stripped away.

On a happy note, there are some beautiful photos of the latest auroras on Spaceweather. The only aurora I’ve ever seen was a deep red one here in South Carolina in December 2001.
