Photo @lucalocatelliphoto for @natgeo Jaime is an asteroid hunter in south of Spain. With his team there, he discovered more than 3000 numbered asteroids of our Solar System, several of them belonging to this near to Earth dangerous family. Among those, 2012 DA14, named "Duende", the closest to Earth flyby of an asteroid with potential threat by its size registered so far. ‘We are watching you’ is a new fascinated story published on @natgeo magazine this month.

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - Mountain regions respond sensitively to climate change. Taking advantage of Alpine caves, a team of scientists led by Swiss Paleoclimatologist Dr. Marc Luetscher from the Swiss Institute for Speleology and Karst Studies (SISKA), is working to understand how permafrost has evolved through time. Ice caves form through a combination of snow intrusion and/or congelation of water infiltrating a karst system. Often up to several centuries old, the climate record of this ice remains largely under-studied. Today we are also able to tell if a cave was an ice cave in the past. This is achieved by looking for cryogenic cave calcites. These form when water enters a cave, and freezes and turns to ice. In this process, the water becomes progressively enriched in ions to the point that it becomes super-saturated and precipitates calcite. Pictured here is the iconic Snow Volcano Hall inside Schwarzmooskogel Eishöhle, Austria. The chamber filled with giant ice and snow cones is 100m (300ft) wide and over 50m (150ft) high is one of the largest ice filled chambers in Europe. Sadly, in recent years due to climate change, these beautiful ice formations have melted dramatically. @natgeocreative

One of the handful of times that I managed to get some good light last year was in one of my favourite locations, can you guess where? 🤭 I love heading out with my trusty @olympus_au EM1 mark II with a 7-14mm and no tripod to sunrise and capturing something like this 😁 perfect morning.

Enjoying the Old Faithful views from Observation Point. Shortly after we were treated to eruptions of Castle, Lion, and Beehive geysers. 💨👍🏽😍 #YellowstonePledge
