Thinking of Hawaii

Download a high resolution image and read more about Kilauea, the most active volcano in Hawaii. The above image was taken on December 3, 2008 by NASA's Aqua satellite using a Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and shows an exceptionally thick gray-white haze hanging low over the Hawaiian Islands. Makes me feel at least a little better that I was here in California working with customers on supercomputer projects that make images like the one above possible instead of laying on the beach. Really.
