The Padirac Chasm or Gouffre de Padirac is a cave located near by the village of Padirac, near to Loubressac, in Lot, south-western France.
The enormous chasm at Padirac is about 99 metres around the rim. It is possible to descend 75 meters to enter the cave system, conformed by 25 kilometres of galleries, and 75 m depth.
”’[Our] model suggests that changing a severe hurricane’s name from Charley … to Eloise … could nearly triple its death toll,’ the study says.”
Oh my fucking god
A Green Flash from the Sun Image Credit & Copyright: Daniel López (El Cielo de Canarias) Explanation: Many think it is just a myth. Others think it is true but its cause isn’t known. Adventurers pride themselves on having seen it. It’s a green flash from the Sun. The truth is the green flash does exist and its cause is well understood. Just as the setting Sun disappears completely from view, a last glimmer appears startlingly green. The effect is typically visible only from locations with a low, distant horizon, and lasts just a few seconds. A green flash is also visible for a rising Sun, but takes better timing to spot. A dramatic green flash, as well as an even more rare red flash, was caught in the above photograph recently observed during a sunset visible from the Observatorio del Roque de Los Muchachos in the Canary Islands, Spain. The Sun itself does not turn partly green or red — the effect is caused by layers of the Earth’s atmosphere acting like a prism.
