Underwater volcano In January, researchers reported the first detailed investigation of the underwater volcano that produced the largest deep-ocean eruption in history. This high-resolution visualization of the Havre volcano, the top of which sits 650 metres below sea level near New Zealand, was created using data collected by autonomous underwater vehicles.

Antarctic light trick This image might look like vintage snap, but US photographer Christopher Michel captured it on a recent expedition to Antarctica. The central halo and three bright spots are the result of an optical phenomenon called a sun dog — or parhelion — which occurs when ice crystals in the atmosphere refract sunlight.

Rarely seen remains Spain began experiencing its worst drought in decades last year, as dry conditions, wildfires and crop deaths wrought havoc, and reservoirs hit historic lows. In this image, taken on 11 January at a reservoir in Vilanova de Sau, Catalonia, the usually submerged remains of an eleventh-century church are exposed by low water levels.

The deep freeze Readers on North America’s east coast will recall the New Year's frosty welcome, thanks to an icy weather system dubbed a bomb cyclone. Pictured here is a frozen observation point on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.

It looks spectacular! We have more snow than usual and it's pretty cold at the moment, around -14C (-21 with wind chill), but it's beautiful. And deadly.

It is beautiful and really cold here too, I had to turn the furnace up a notch this morning, which I never had to do for a long while.

Yeah we've had to turn on the electric heaters for the first time in a long while as well. December electric bill was 57 and some euros and I expect January was way more expensive uhoh.gif
