Surreal Sunrise

Clouds flow like a river over the lights of Swiss villages as the rising sun crowns the Alps with morning gold in a January 30 picture. To the right, a crescent moon and the bright dot of Venus decorate the paling sky.

Star-Struck Aurora

Stars wheeling across the sky seem to cut through a fiery aurora in a recently released long-exposure picture taken in western Sweden.

Double Trouble

An arch of plasma called a solar filament erupts from the sun on January 28 in a video still from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft.
