The Lucky Photographer Captures the Meteor Falling Into a Volcano and the Photos Are Spectacular

Have you ever seen a meteor so closely to earth?! If not, this is the right time for you to see spectacular images of a meteor falling into a volcano. Mount Merapi is the most active volcano in Indonesia. It’s name literally means Fire. Accordingly, this volcano has been erupting since the 16th century and never stopped since then. Recently this volcano greeted a falling meteor and gave us the most breathtaking views.

The photographer Gunarto Song was lucky enough to be there during those moments as he fires off the shutter and takes the pictures. The meteor falling into the mount made the perfect view worth capturing. Immediately after Song posted his photos on social media they went viral with over 30,000 likes.

We contacted the photographer himself and he gave us some answers. He said that that night he only planned to capture the beauty of Mount Merapi. Additionally, that night was also the full moon so he thought it would be the perfect set. But in due time while he was ready to shoot the camera, suddenly he noticed a light falling from the sky to the top of the mountain. And that was the ideal moment when he captured the spectacular views. He says that this is like a jackpot because it is only a lifetime opportunity.

“The first time I got the photo, I was just so excited and trying to figure out, what light is that? So that in the end when I uploaded the photo on my IG, it went viral. And of course I am very grateful and very blessed”

What appears to be a long shimmering light, however, is the result of a long exposure shooting technique.

Furthermore he stated for EarthWonders that the viral photo is very important for him. Thus it encourages him to be more enthusiastic producing better works in the future.

So the photos aren’t edited and no, no alien has passed by our planet. Thus we are safe to say that this was only a sweet meteor visit. While Mount Merapi remains one of the most active volcanoes in the world bleaching out fiery red lava, nonetheless, this mountain still holds the beautiful wonder of the world.

The long exposure made the meteor appear as long a strike

Climate Change Signs: How Do We Know?

Our climate is changing around us faster than predicted. From more frequent and extreme storms to unprecedented heatwaves, we’re indeed feeling the impacts of human-caused global warming. The icebergs are melting, various locations are experiencing greater flooding, wildfires are happening more frequently, and so on.

Specifically, scientists have studied past climate changes to understand the factors that can cause the planet to warm or cool. The big ones are changes in solar energy, ocean circulation, volcanic activity as well as the number of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Thus, they have each played a role at times. However, human activities are not an exception since it is believed to be main contributors to such increases in average global temperatures

And although we’re all concerned about climate change when it looks like a problem for future generations, we still ask ourselves, ‘will climate change even affect me?’ No matter what we care about, climate change is already affecting our world today. While we still have time to limit the worst impact, we have collected 15 great reasons to start acting now.

These photos illustrate the state of the planet and our climate, as it has changed over the past decade. They reveal how much seriously we must consider the climate change issues!
