Video captured on Oct. 7th, 2009, the west of the capital of Russia. In the skies over Moscow visible cloud of unusual shape. The video was shot at the Moscow Ring Road in moving from Volokolamsky to Novorizhskoe highway.
One eyewitness wrote that he had received comments about this cloud in the weather center. There he was informed that over Moscow sprang a tornado, but later cleared.

So you could stand in the centre and there would be a ring of snow falling around you, or, as I cannot see any precipitation, does the ice vapourise as it falls?

NASA released an amazing photograph of an eruption of Sarychev Peak Volcano, taken by astronauts aboard the orbiting International Space Station (ISS). Seeing that great photo prompted me to dig into the archives and see what other imagery I could find from recent NASA archives. Collected here are a handful of photographs of Sarychev Peak Volcano, and more, taken by astronauts aboard the ISS.

High above Russia's Kuril Islands, astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) look down on erupting Sarychev Peak Volcano (plume in center, left) on Matua Island and its brownish ash mixing with cloud cover downwind on June 12, 2009. Part of the ISS, a Soyuz module, is visible in the foreground.

A closer look at Sarychev Peak Volcano reveals more detail, the circular hole in the clouds around the island, the smooth condensation cloud wrapping much of the ash plume.

Closer still to Sarychev Peak Volcano, pyroclastic flows can be seen tumbling down its slope (lighter clouds, bottom). Also visible is a closer view of the condensation cloud or "pileus", formed by the rapidly rising plume

A view looking straight down at the top of the eruption plume of Sarychev Peak Volcano on June 12, 2009. Local winds were very light that day, and the eruption plume's upward motion was hardly disturbed at all

One day after its eruption pictured above, ash from Russia's Sarychev Peak Volcano mixes and ripples out into the surrounding clouds.

These are great pictures :thumbsup: The one with the pyroclastic flows is particulary good.
Very interesting commentary as well. :thumbsup:
It's funny stuff is water.
