Mr. @circles ,
Where did you find Mr. Jibber Jabber
Any special area of interest...
39.1910° N, 120.9999° W
Just looking around. I find her videos interesting and articulate.
Timelapse of Perseids in 2018
Churning clouds on Jupiter.
Words fail me.
I still can't believe people planned, built and completed this project. I mean, if we can work together on something like this. THIS IS A PICTURE OF A DISTANT PLANET FROM BEYOND THAT DISTANT PLANET:
Words fail me for my mere existence. Thus, music, I guess.
Reminds me of an impressionist painting.
Or an Easter egg. My mom used to dip them in oil paint, and they'd come out very similar.
Today's APOD: Jupiter and Saturn lower left and the Milky Way, behind the "alien throne" rock in New Mexico.
This picture is unbelievably cool.
Another glorious one from APOD - super wide-angle of Perseids and the Milky Way.
The South Atlantic Anomaly continues to move Westward and spread; it may even be splitting in two, sparking real worries about the integrity of Earth's protective magnetic field.
It would pose a serious threat to most of the life on this planet if the field were to fade, or if it underwent the pole shift that's long overdue (geologically speaking, that is - meaning it could happen any century now).
Scientists tell us there's evidence of times in earth's geological past when there were multiple North and South poles scattered all around the planet. These periods lasted for centuries.
In short... the planet that we trying to save is gonna kill us?
Multiple Planets around a Sun Like Star
Do other stars have planets like our Sun? Previous evidence shows that they do, coming mostly from slight shifts in the star's light created by the orbiting planets. Recently, however, and for the first time, a pair of planets has been directly imaged around a Sun-like star. These exoplanets orbit the star designated TYC 8998-760-1 and are identified by arrows in the featured infrared image.
At 17 million years old, the parent star is much younger than the 5-billion-year age of our Sun. Also, the exoplanets are both more massive and orbit further out than their Solar System analogues: Jupiter and Saturn.
The exoplanets were found by the ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile by their infrared glow – after the light from their parent star was artificially blocked. As telescope and technology improve over the next decade, it is hoped that planets more closely resembling our Earth will be directly imaged.
Irony can be pretty ironic sometimes.
Two word's, bowling ball.
Somebody posted this one over at TGP.
Here's a picture of Uranus, Beavis:
