A beautiful representation of aerosol emission and transport modelling, but the simulations show that "...pollution from China affects cloud development in the North Pacific and strengthens extratropical cyclones.... these intense storms could have affected the upper-atmosphere wind pattern, called the polar jet stream."

Carl Sagan's voiceover turned this stunning video into something truly inspiring.

One off the best things I have ever watched. Invest four minutes!  This -- rather than anger and cynicism -- is what being human must be about... or else, why bother?

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/11/29/wanderers_video_of_our_future_in_space_exploration.html

Oh, also note: almost all of the places depicted here are real. Many of them extrapolated from photos taken already by our robot emissaries. “We” have already been to these wondrous spots. We are already titans!  On our way to unimaginable greatness.

The huge sunspot group that made the news a couple of weeks (e.g. http://wapo.st/1swQUGH) ago seems to have grown while on the far-side of the Sun and is about to rotate back into view. Hold on to your hats...

The video shows a component of the magnetic field of the Sun, in blue for the near-side and yellow for the far-side. The sunspot group (a.k.a. AR 2192) is the blob near the equator at 240. How do we "see" on the far-side of the Sun? Helioseismology!

The largest man-made explosion (before nuclear weapons) has cast a shadow over Halifax for most of a century. Now there's a new novel by Steven Laffoley, The Blue Tattoo, that tells the sweeping story of the lives caught up in the unbelievable devastation of the Halifax Explosion.

I haven't read it yet, but I've just ordered the novel. Yes, Steven is a friend, but his book is currently beating Ian McEwan and Margaret Atwood on Bookmark's bestsellers list (http://bookmarkinc.ca/halifax/). Way to go, Steven!

Tonight is shaping up to be a great night for viewing the aurora over Canada, and possibly the US. You can check the odds of seeing aurora at your location by refreshing the Ovation model (http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/ovation/North_New.html) as the night progresses. The times are given as UT (Universal Time) so you'll need to use a time zone converter to get the times in your time zone (e.g. http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html). Happy viewing!

Phew! A week earlier and this CME could have really done some damage...

NASA ScienceCasts: Carrington-class CME Narrowly Misses Earth
Two years ago, an intense solar storm narrowly missed Earth. If it had hit, researchers say, we could still be picking up the pieces.

CME = Coronal Mass Ejection
A coronal mass ejection is a massive burst of solar wind and magnetic fields rising above the solar corona or being released into space.

CASSIOPE carries two payloads: Cascade, a technology demonstrator for high-speed data storage and forwarding; and ePOP (enhanced Polar Outflow Probe), science instruments which will observe the ionosphere and get new data on space weather and its impacts.
