(the most amazing thing I’ve seen in so long)
Pele’s hair from the lava lake in Halema’uma’u crater, in the caldera of Kīlauea in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, on May 3, 2012. Pele’s Hair is the name given to volcanic glass threads or fibers formed when small particles of molten material are thrown into the air and spun out by the wind into long hair-like strands. Pele’s hair covers much of the ground in the area immediately downwind of the vent at Halema’uma’u crater. Accumulations about one meter wide are found on the windward sides of the curbs in the Halema’uma’u parking lot. (Matthew Patrick/USGS) #

Battered volcano Tharsis Tholus
Tharsis Tholis towers 8 km above the surrounding terrain. Its base stretches 155 x 125 km and what marks it out as unusual is its battered condition. 
The image was created using a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) obtained data taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express spacecraft during four orbits of Mars: 0997, 1019, 1041, 1052 between 28 October and 13 November 2004. Elevation data from the DTM is colour coded: purple indicates the lowest lying regions and beige the highest. The scale is in metres.
