Spiraling Cloud Patterns Over Guadalupe Island On May 24 2017 the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite captured a natural-color image of long spiraling cloud patterns or "von Kármán vortices" on the lee side of Guadalupe Island. The volcanic island rises from the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Baja California Mexico.

Solar Evaporation Ponds Near Moab Utah An astronaut aboard the International Space Station took this photograph of solar evaporation ponds outside the city of Moab Utah. There are 23 colorful ponds spread across 400 acres. They are part of a large operation to mine potassium chloridemore commonly referred to as muriate of potash (MOP)from ore buried underground.
