@littlek,
I found the picture with no context, might even be fake.

On September 30, a spectacular bolide or fireball meteor surprised a group of amateur astronomers enjoying dark night skies over the Oklahoma panhandle's Black Mesa State Park in the Midwestern US. Flashing past familiar constellations Taurus (top) and Orion, the extremely bright meteor was captured by a hillside camera overlooking the 2008 Okie-Tex Star Party.

@nimh,
Was that picture from one of their commercials?

And thanks for reminding me of them, I'll have to dig up some to post on my creative ads threads.

The STEREO (Ahead) spacecraft observed this visually stunning prominence eruption on Sept. 29, 2008, in the 304 angstrom wavelength of extreme UV light. Prominences are relatively cool clouds of gas suspended above the sun and controlled by magnetic forces.

The prominence rose and cascaded to the right over several hours, appearing something like a flag unfurling, as it broke apart and headed into space. The prominence is composed of ionized Helium that is about 60,000 degrees Kelvin.

@Robert Gentel,
You know them?! Cool :-) I thought that reference would be totally obscure to anyone but an errant Dutchman dropping in.

No, I dont know that this was a picture from one of their commercials, I just thought it would be perfect for them! :-D

Yeah, they had that Bill Clinton voodoo doll ad that made the rounds on the net and being an advertising junkie I've followed their campaigns online. They have some of the best advertising around.

I made a thread about it here: http://able2know.org/topic/124180-1

Evidence from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Magellan telescopes suggest a star was torn apart by an intermediate-mass black hole in a globular cluster. In this image, X-rays from Chandra are shown in blue and are overlaid on an optical image from the Hubble Space Telescope.

Comet McNaught 2009 R1 is pictured in the night sky over Jauerling, Austria, on June 9. The green shimmering comet can be seen with the naked eye under ideal conditions and might become as bright as Ursa Major within June.
