NASA | Six Decades of a Warming Earth

This visualization shows how global temperatures have risen from 1950 through the end of 2013.

NASA scientists say 2013 tied for the seventh warmest of any year since 1880, continuing a long-term trend of rising global temperatures. With the exception of 1998, the 10 warmest years in the 133-year record all have occurred since 2000, with 2010 and 2005 ranking as the hottest years on record.

NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York, which analyzes global surface temperatures on an ongoing basis, released an updated report Tuesday, Jan. 21, on temperatures around the globe in 2013. The comparison shows how Earth continues to experience warmer temperatures than several decades ago.

The visualization shows a running five-year average global temperature, as compared to a baseline average global temperature from 1951-1980.

The Astro Alphabet by Ethan Siege

A is for Aurora, the Earth’s polar lights,
as the Sun’s hot electrons help color our nights.

B is for Black Hole, a star’s collapsed heart,
if you cross its horizon, you’ll never depart.

C is for Comet, with tails, ice, and dust,
a trip near the Sun makes skywatching a must!

D is for Dark Matter, the great cosmic glue
that holds clusters together, but not me and you!

E is for Eclipse, where the Moon, Earth and Sun
cast light-blocking shadows that can’t be outrun.

F is for Fusion, that powers the stars,
as nuclei join, their released light is ours!

G is for Galaxies, in groups and alone,
house billions of planets with lifeforms unknown.

H is for Hubble, for whom Earth’s no place;
a telescope like this belongs up in space.

I is for Ions, making nebulae glow;
as they find electrons, we capture the show.

J is for Jets, from a galaxy’s core,
if you feed them right, they’ll be active once more!

K is for Kepler, whose great laws of motion
keep planets on course in the great cosmic ocean.

L is for Libration, which makes our Moon rock,
it’s a trick of the orbit; it’s tidally locked!

M is for Meteors, which come in a shower,
if skies are just right, you’ll see hundreds an hour!

N is for Nebula, what forms when stars die,
this recycled fuel makes cosmic apple pie.

O is for Opaque, why the Milky Way’s dark,
these cosmic dust lanes make starlight appear stark!

P is for Pulsar, a spinning neutron star,
as the orbits tick by, we know just when we are.

Q is for Quasar, a great radio source,
accelerating matter with little remorse.

R is for Rings, all gas giants possess them,
even one found in another sun’s system!

S is for Spacetime, which curves due to matter,
this Universe-fabric can bend but won’t shatter!

T is for Tides, caused by gravity’s tune,
our oceans bulge out from the Sun and the Moon.

U is the Universe, our goal’s understanding,
with billions of galaxies, as spacetime’s expanding!

V is for Virgo, our nearest great cluster,
with thousands of galaxies, it’s a gut-buster!

W is for Wavelength, the energies of light,
that tell us what atoms are in stars just from sight!

X is for X-rays, high-energy light,
where bursts of new stars show an ionized might.

Y is the Year, where we orbit our Sun,
each planet’s is different; the Earth’s is just one.

Z is for Zenith , so gaze up at the sky!
The Universe is here; let’s learn what, how and why.

1/ Rottnest Island

Went on a day trip to this beautiful Rottnest Island - home of Quokkas ! 

Rottnest Island is 18 kilometres (11 mi) off the Western Australian coast, very slightly north of due west from Fremantle. It is called Wadjemup by the Noongar people, meaning "place across the water". The island is 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) long, and 4.5 kilometres (2.8 mi) at its widest point. Its total land area is 19 square kilometres (7.3 sq mi). Rottnest Island has been a popular local holiday destination for over 50 years.

The Western Australian vernacular diminutive is "Rotto", or "Rottnest"

Rottnest Island was inhabited by Aboriginal people until rising sea levels separated the island from the mainland of Western Australia about 7,000 years ago. The island features in Noongar Aboriginal mythology as Wadjemup, meaning "Place across the water". Aboriginal artefacts on the island have been dated from 6,500 to more than 30,000 years ago.However, recent evidence (1999) suggests human occupation significantly before 50,000, possibly as early as 70,000 BP.

There were no people on the island when European exploration began in the 17th century, and the Aboriginal people on the mainland did not have boats that could make the crossing, so the island had probably been uninhabited for several thousand years.

Thank you ! & yes the weather was perfect when I arrived on the island. In the promotional brochure, it is also suitable to go in Sept-Nov to watch the humpback whale and the waters will be a bit warm :) +Kristin Milton

1/ Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse

Historic Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is situated at the most south westerly tip of Australia, standing at the point where the Indian and Southern Oceans meet - 8 kilometres west of Augusta. With a stunning blue backdrop of the ocean meeting the sky the lighthouse appears to glow in white splendour during summer, whilst during winter the awesome force of the fierce Southern Ocean and powerful Indian Ocean crashing against the Cape makes your visit a unique, awesome and contrasting experience year round.

Since it was raining heavily, I stayed inside the lighthouse cafe having delicious fresh scones & Rocky Road, a cup of tea, and Vienna coffee :P

1/ Kalamunda History Village

Kalamunda History Village is on the site of the old Upper Darling Range Railway Station built in the 1890s to service the Zig Zag line which transported timber from Canning Mills to the main line at Midland Junction. It is the largest folk museum in Western Australia depicting the unique hills life and industries that developed in the area.

The museum consists of

♜ Locomotive G118 – a "G" Class locomotive of the type used on the Kalamunda line, including the Zig Zag, during its 49 years of government ownership
♜Railway stations – the original railway station (1903-1927) and a second railway station (1927-1949)
♜School House (1905-1970) – the area's first State school building
♜Post Offices – the original Post Office (1901-1921) and the first official Post Office (1921-1972)
♜Chamber's House (1922) – which depicts a typical pre World War II boarding house
♜McCullagh Cottage (1895) – a settler's cottage
♜Carriage Shed – housing a range of older transportation vehicles
♜Orchard Shed – showing the development of the orchard industry in the district
♜Blacksmith – a display of the blacksmith's trade
♜Sawpit – as used by the pioneers of the timber industry
♜ Dunny – an original, complete with newspaper
♜ Whim – used in the early days of the timber industry for moving logs - on loan from the WA Museum
♜ Kalamunda Community Memorial Building – featuring transport display and memorial wall

2/ The Margaret River Chocolate Company

Almost died from deebs from tasting the free chocolates. 

Mind you, Margaret River and Swan Valley wine regions of Western Australia and a concept store in Perth City have been making award-winning chocolate products since 1999.
