BLMer P. De Witt snapped this amazing shot of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse. The lightning associated with these storms poses several risks to the lighthouse - a direct strike the building or a strike to the ground nearby that travels up to the light through the electrical system. In fact in the lighthouse went dark for a period after a strike last year (2013) on August 22.The good news is, thanks to the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum and the U.S. Coast Guard the lighthouse recently got an electrical upgrade to help protect the light during thunderstorms. — at Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area.

MOON MOSAIC — A gorgeous image of the Moon from Noel Carboni via NASA: “No single exposure can easily capture faint stars along with the subtle colors of the Moon. But this dramatic composite view highlights both. The mosaic digitally stitches together fifteen carefully exposed high resolution images of a bright, gibbous Moon and a representative background star field. The fascinating color differences along the lunar surface are real, though highly exaggerated, corresponding to regions with different chemical compositions.” (NASA)
