And I met the +Rosetta people from +European Space Agency, ESA at the +European Geosciences Union in Vienna yesterday :-)....
 
Today's #CometWatch entry shows comet 67P/C-G from an unusual angle, revealing some regions on the comet nucleus that were partly cast in shadow in previously published images. Taken 15 April 2015 from a distance of 170 km to the comet centre.

The lunch scene at the European Geophysical Union in Vienna!
I have two presentations here this year. One on Earth observation data on Svalbard (SIOS) and another on Science outreach.

Yes, +Rajini Rao that is what they said on the local weather forecast in Norfolk. It was several degrees below freezing point. Strange coming from the Arctic to freeze my b** off so far South :-)

Major solar eclipse on Friday folks! Look out and appeal to the weather Gods asking for a clear sky! :-)

They were so lucky those who went to Svalbard for the total eclipse!

During a total solar eclipse, the Sun's extensive outer atmosphere, or corona, is an inspirational sight. Streamers and shimmering features that engage the eye span a brightness range of over 10,000 to 1, making them notoriously difficult to capture in a single photograph. But this composite of 29 telescopic images covers a wide range of exposure times to reveal the crown of the Sun in all its glory. The aligned and stacked digital frames were recorded in the cold, clear skies above the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, Norway during the Sun's total eclipse on March 20 and also show solar prominences extending just beyond the edge of the solar disk. Remarkably, even small details on the dark night side of the New Moon can be made out, illuminated by sunlight reflected from a Full Earth. Of course, fortunes will be reversed on April 4 as a Full Moon plunges into the shadow of a New Earth, during a total lunar eclipse.

Solar flare reported! You all know what that means, don't you? :-)
 
A large solar flare,  lead to the ejection of a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) from the Sun. 'The CME originated from close to the centre of the solar disc on 15th March', says the British Geological Survey (BGS).

When a CME hits the Earth, it lead to a geomagnetic storm, as the Earth's magnetosphere is disturbed by the incoming solar particles. The outcome, provided all the conditions are right, is the appearance of aurora in the night sky.

Coinciding with St. Patrick's Day, the sky turned green with the aurora put on a spectacular show last night, even at lower than usual latitudes, as a result of the severity of the storm. Aurora were visible in both the northern and southern hemisphere, from New Zealand, to the USA and throughout northern Europe.

You can learn more about the geomagnetic storm from the BGS website here: egu.eu/5461Z8

If you'd like to see some stunning aurora photographs you can follow these links:
