Bacteria's Sinister Division

It was early morning just north of Shishaldon Island in the Bering Sea. I was woken to 'see something'. I made my way out on the deck of our trawler, and to my surprise there was the most intense, beautiful sunrise I had ever seen at sea. The snow covered, smoking crater of Shishaldon, a still active volcano in the Aleutian Island chain, capped off this magnificent display.
Check out our gallery of lenticulars and other extreme clouds here.
