Off the coast of Greenland lies an island resembling a bony claw. Long connected to Greenland’s coast by ice, the island escaped recognition for what it was for nearly a century. The island might have been discovered when explorers such as Jean-Baptiste Charcot and Philippe, Duke of Orléans, mapped Greenland’s coast. Instead, this little island was only recognized as such in September 2005, by Dennis Schmitt, an explorer from Berkeley, California. Melting ice enabled Schmitt to detect the island while flying over northwestern Greenland.

These pictures were taken last night, June 26, at Citi Field in Queens, NY, after a thunderstorm hit the tri-state area (of which I reside within). Credit to "beau-dog" on Flickr.gallery

It looks straight out of a movie or painting....
