Pictures in the News | June 7, 2011

Today’s Pictures in the News highlights include images of nature’s power, man’s conflict, and some adorable creatures:

NASA releases a satellite photo of Chile’s Puyehue-Cordón Caulle volcano eruption that has forced thousands from their homes, grounded airline flights in southern Argentina and coated ski resorts with a gritty layer of dust instead of snow. In Tripoli, smoke rises in the sky after a NATO airstrike. On a lake in Hamburg, a cygnet — also known as a baby swan — sits on the back of an adult. And St. Bernards travel from their winter quarters in Martigny, Switzerland,  to their summer home on the Great St. Bernard Pass.
