About the header image: Wednesday, May 23, 2012

This week's image is from veteran journalist Andy Palumbo, and first appeared on his blog on March 29, 2012. From his description of the image:

There was an unusual sight near Montrose-- a mass of flames shooting from the top of something, and it sounded like a jet engine.  I couldn't get close without trespassing, so this was the best I could do.  The photo doesn't do it justice.

As more of Pennsylvania's agricultural and forested land is turned into a patchwork of natural gas-extraction rigs, gas flares like this will be sights and sounds we will be seeing and hearing more of. ashes for trees, hot air for a cool breeze...

If you have an image that you'd like us to feature as the NEPA Blogs header for a week, please send it to us at!
