Das Auge Afrikas

In der Sahara Mauretaniens.

Erst aus dem All ist das runde Gebilde mit einem Durchmesser von 45 Kilometern zu erkennen. Die Struktur ist so auffällig, dass Astronauten sie als Landmarke nutzen. Der US-Astronaut Chris Cassidy hat das „Auge Afrikas“ von der Internationalen Raumstation (ISS) aus fotografiert und getwittert.

Dazu eine Satzerfindung von mir, die ich jedem zweiten erklären muss (müsste besser noch mündlich vorgetragen werden):

In this amazing photomontage we get to see the evolution of a tornado that formed north of Minneola, Kansas on May 24, 2016. The photo is a composite of eight images shot in two sequences. According to photographer Jason Weingart, this prolific supercell went on to produce at least 12 tornadoes and at times had two and even three tornadoes on the ground at once.

This image was most recently awarded first place in the Wikimedia Commons 2018 Picture of the Year. The image was also a Jury’s Choice award winner in the 2017 Wiki Science Competition in the United States.
