The Empire State Building ... I Love NY

Empire State Building:

"Visitors and observers from near and far should not take the lighting of the Empire State Building for granted because there are always interesting and interactive events planned throughout the year. As a focal point for displays, gatherings, and promotions, the Tower Lights just might surprise you with how often they change! Tower lights go off every night at 2:00 AM."

Tower Light Themes

"One of the most impressive buildings in the world is the Empire State Building. One of the most impressive exterior highlight lighting systems to ever grace a building is the only fitting way to dress up this landmark at night. This lighting schedule is frequently referenced by line-of-sight residents of neighboring New York, New Jersey and Connecticut."

Mount St. Helens, 30 years ago - The Big Picture -

Mount St. Helens, 30 years ago :
"Mount St. Helens, 30 years ago
On May 18th, 1980, thirty years ago today, at 8:32 a.m., the ground shook beneath Mount St. Helens in Washington state as a magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck, setting off one of the largest landslides in recorded history - the entire north slope of the volcano slid away. As the land moved, it exposed the superheated core of the volcano setting off gigantic explosions and eruptions of steam, ash and rock debris. The blast was heard hundreds of miles away, the pressure wave flattened entire forests, the heat melted glaciers and set off destructive mudflows, and 57 people lost their lives. The erupting ash column shot up 80,000 feet into the atmosphere for over 10 hours, depositing ash across Eastern Washington and 10 other states. Collected here are photos of the volcano and its fateful 1980 eruption."
