Eclipse at Moonrise
Image Credit & Copyright: Zhou Yannan

As the Moon rose and the Sun set on October 8, a lunar eclipse was in progress seen from Chongqing, China. Trailing through this composite time exposure, the rising Moon began as a dark reddened disk in total eclipse near the eastern horizon. Steadily climbing above the populous city's colorful lights along the Yangtze River, the moontrail grows brighter and broader, until a bright Full Moon emerged from the Earth's shadow in evening skies. Although lunar eclipses are not always total ones, this eclipse, along with last April's lunar eclipse, were the first two of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, a series known as a tetrad. The final two eclipses of this tetrad will occur in early April and late September 2015.

Despite extensive analysis, Fermi bubbles defy explanation
From Phys.org: Scientists from Stanford and the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have analyzed more than four years of data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, along with data from other experiments, to create the most detailed portrait yet of two towering bubbles that stretch tens of thousands of light-years above and below our galaxy. The bubbles, which shine most brightly in energetic gamma rays, were discovered almost four years ago… Read more:

A few days old, but this is a great shot, and had to share - this launch took place in Virginia, not far from us.

Antares Rocket Launch
Image Credit: +NASA, Bill Ingalls
http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130921.html

The sky looks dark in this scene from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport (MARS) at NASA Wallops Flight Facility, Virginia. Captured on Wednesday, September 18, an Orbital Sciences Corporation Antares rocket is leaving launch pad-0A with the Cygnus cargo spacecraft aboard. Though it looks like night, the photograph was taken at 10:58am EDT, under bright, clear morning skies, with a digital camera modified to record infrared images. The Sun itself is above and left of the picture frame, creating strong glare and internal reflections in the camera lens at near-infrared wavelengths. In the false-color presentation, the vegetation and watery reflections also take on an otherworldly pallor. Reaching orbit, the Cygnus spacecraft is now on its way to a Sunday rendezvous with the International Space Station. The spacecraft will deliver about 1,300 pounds (589 kilograms) of cargo to the Expedition 37 crew.___A few days old, but this is a great shot, and had to share - this launch took place in Virginia, not far from us.

Attn #complexity folks: probably of interest!

The Power of Swarms Can Help Us Fight Cancer, Understand the Brain, and Predict the Future - must read by +Ed Yong #longreads  

The first thing to hit Iain Couzin when he walked into the Oxford lab where he kept his locusts was the smell, like a stale barn full of old hay. The second, third, and fourth things to hit him were locusts. The insects frequently escaped their cages and careened into the faces of scientists and lab techs. The room was hot and humid, and the constant commotion of 20,000 bugs produced a miasma of aerosolized insect exoskeleton. Many of the staff had to wear respirators to avoid developing severe allergies. “It wasn’t the easiest place to do science,” Couzin says.___Attn #complexity folks: probably of interest!

Take a look at Fraser's Super Science Circle...lotsa good people in here. :)

The Return of the Super Science Circle

Okay, I'll admit, I made a mistake in retiring the Super Science Circle. I wasn't wrong; Communities are still the future and the best way to make friends here on Google+. But I realized that the Super Science Circle is simple and efficient way to get new people to see that Google+ isn't a ghost town.

PLEASE SHARE THIS POST... FOR SCIENCE!

When I was attending +ScienceOnline 2013, I must have helped dozens of people join Google+, and the first thing I had them do was import this circle. It's an invaluable tool for getting new people up to speed.

So, I just did a complete refresh on the circle. I examined every single member and judged them according to my two-part criteria:

1. Active in the last 30 days or so.
2. Regularly post on scientific topics.

If you know anyone who might make a good candidate for this circle, please let me know.

As always, import this circle into a new, temporary circle, and then you can refresh it when I share a new version.

DON'T FORGET TO SHARE THIS POST___Take a look at Fraser's Super Science Circle...lotsa good people in here. :)

Why oh why are they doing this??? This is the only way I can keep up with blogs. What's the point of eliminating it?

Godsdammit, Google! Now what will I do for an RSS reader?

Recommendations, people. I've been a diehard Google Reader user since... it started? And yes, I know there are a variety of other RSS reading platforms out there. Yes, I can search. Yes, I can read reviews.

What I'd love is to hear from other RSS junkies like me who've made the switch or use a similar product. My key needs:

* Syncing & Portability - I log into lots of different computers and devices throughout the day.
* Categorization - I subscribe to about 100 feeds. Some are more important than others, but none is read as an individual feed. I read at the group/category level.
* Good image support - I want full posts (a setting in the XML file sent, but some readers auto-limit) that displays the images in the post, too.

And I don't care about podcast support. I have another system for that.

Options, people. I need options. And did I mention #dammitgoogle ?___Why oh why are they doing this??? This is the only way I can keep up with blogs. What's the point of eliminating it?

Surely, lightning bolts help quench areas of opposite but separated electric charges. One hypothesis holds that catapulting magma bubbles or volcanic ash are themselves electrically charged, and by their motion create these separated areas. Other volcanic lightning episodes may be facilitated by charge-inducing collisions in volcanic dust. Lightning is usually occurring somewhere on Earth, typically over 40 times each second.___
