Wow oh wow oh wow

Amazing photos of the volcanic eruption in Chile:

So so cool. Also amazing. More stunning pix at the Atlantic.

 

While I'm BLOWING YOUR MIND, here is a cool video of a huge explosion on the surface of the sun. 

This sent over a billion tons of material into space, and the explosion was nearly the entire diameter of the sun itself.  More video with a wider field of view here
