The Face of Akbar Lightning

Posted by on May 6, 2010 in Akbar Lightning, Science

A lot of our readers have asked to see the face of Akbar Lightning….well, if you want to know what he looks like, check out these photos of him in action.  Remember not to make the genetic fallacy, associating his presence with the cause of a disaster.  What you are seeing in these photos is an epic battle between the eruption of internal heat and Akbar’s attempts to channel that destructive heat into light.

    Amazing photos. Just jaw dropping. To think we are part of that thing we call nature. It would seem these are all from that recent volcano eruption in Iceland called Eyjafjallajokull.

    Did Akbar have something to do with that? Are you thinking of erupting another volcano anytime soon and closing an entire continent down from air traffic?
