Here’s a photo of lightning striking both the Washington Mutual Tower and the Space Needle yesterday during a squall. Another bolt of lightning hit a power-line in front of our home. The impact destroyed a power transformer, sending its lid (roughly 100 lbs.) hurling over our building where it landed near our back alley. Luckily our building was okay – other than the light spraying of transformer fluid.

Thomas Weinberger from Munich, Germany, uses a very interesting method in his photography. It’s called synthesen and as you can see, the images below are almost surreal. Wienberger’s technique is to take two photographs – one durring the daylight hours and one at night – then he combines them. The photographs are from the same physcial location. In each one you see aspects and lighting of both day and night. Visit Thomas Weinberger’s photography site at http://www.thomas-weinberger.de/index.htm.
Just to the lower right of the moon is a clutch of stars known as the Beehive Cluster, or Praesepe, in the constellation Cancer, and to the right of that is the planet Saturn.
The Earth, meanwhile, sports some shining lights of its own. The International Space Station was flying above Scandinavia when this image was taken, allowing city lights to pierce the black of night.
