    My Maui friends sent me a video. Tsunami has passed and their beach chairs are intact.

    I got this from hacker news:

    Here's the Himawari-8 satellite viewer, centred on the eruption.
    Press the right arrow icon in the bottom right to advance to the next 10min snapshot.

    That right arrow key is super balky, can only get it to advance to 16:00, oh well.

    In that US Stormwatch tweet linked by JC it said over 10,000 lightning strikes were recorded, ~167 per second at it's peak. Seems like a lot.

    Yeah I couldn't get it to work on my phone, things disappeared as I went to tap them.
    There's a cool video of the eruption here.

    This one's rad with visible and IR data.

    Sandwich RGB The benefit of the VIS/IR Sandwich RGB is that it combines the high spatial detail from visible band 3 with the temperature information of IR band 13. Quick guide for this product linked below courtesy of EUMETRAIN.

    ^^That blast is what quantified the magnitude of how powerful this eruption was to me. Crazy stuff.

    Some funky water movement going on in Santa Cruz. Amazing how far it’s affecting the world.

    Tonga blast estimated at 10 megatons of TNT equivalent, 500x Hiroshima.

    When you put a ton of seawater into a cubic kilometer of liquid rock, things are going to get bad fast," he says.
    That's an understatement.

    ".... just because" ..... it's better than the original! I, for one, welcome the arrival of performance enhancing/improving artificial limbs.

    What could possibly go wrong with this? Certainly has no potential to be taken advantage of.

    Reuters did a good job giving a sense of scale for the eruption. Overlaying the cloud on various countries around the world here: https://graphics.reuters.com/TONGA-V...bvo/index.html

    Daily deep breath. Just consider the amount of matter in this photo.
    Also, this is from Hubble. Let's give it up to that scope for feeding our imagination and giving us some much needed perspective on this spec of dust.

    Science has become too political. Can this be moved to Polyass?

    Not until we attack fauci. He is science

    And don’t get started on Neil degrade Tyson.
    He must also be worshipped
