ISS and Mercury Too

Transits of Mercury are relatively rare. Monday's leisurely 7.5 hour long event was only the 2nd of 14 Mercury transits in the 21st century. If you're willing to travel, transits of the International Space Station can be more frequent though, and much quicker. This sharp video frame composite was taken from a well-chosen location in Philadelphia, USA. It follows the space station, moving from upper right to lower left, as it crossed the Sun's disk in 0.6 seconds. Mercury too is included as the small, round, almost stationary silhouette just below center. In apparent size, the International Space Station looms larger from low Earth orbit, about 450 kilometers from Philadelphia. Mercury was about 84 million kilometers away. (Editor's note: The stunning video includes another double transit, Mercury and a Pilatus PC12 aircraft. Even quicker than the ISS to cross the Sun, the aircraft was about 1 kilometer away.)

Did you ever get confused about time zones? You are not alone. Even those of us working  on standards need to be reminded to use - well - one standard when agree on a time to meet. :-)

And here is what we recommend!

https://www.rd-alliance.org/what-time-it-rda
RDA is a global organisation working to develop and deploy standards that help us communicate better so we can to solve big problems. RDA is also an organisation of humans who communicate in very informal and idiosyncratic ways. This diversity of communication styles makes our discourse very rich, but it can also be very confusing. You would think we could agree on some of the basics like date and time.

Earth science combined with various citizen science data fuel the development of our understanding of climate change. Learn both about the data management and models, as well as about phenology and climate change  research using citizen science data. You'll also see that there is a link between Hepatica nobilis and space....
Once we have turned our citizen observations into science data, what are they being used for? Making data interoperable. Climate change research and space based services are only some examples of how biodiversity data collected by citizens can be used for.

What an interesting place the Museum fur naturkunde in Berlin is!
200-300 citizen science experts met there as part of the European Citizen Science Association.

Those blue bubbles ... My oh my. Perfect bubbly celebration of our Earth Day!
 
NGC 7635: The Bubble Nebula

http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap160422.html

Blown by the wind from a massive star, this interstellar apparition has a surprisingly familiar shape. Cataloged as NGC 7635, it is also known simply as The Bubble Nebula. Although it looks delicate, the 7 light-year diameter bubble offers evidence of violent processes at work. Above and left of the Bubble's center is a hot, O-type star, several hundred thousand times more luminous and around 45 times more massive than the Sun. A fierce stellar wind and intense radiation from that star has blasted out the structure of glowing gas against denser material in a surrounding molecular cloud. The intriguing Bubble Nebula and associated cloud complex lie a mere 7,100 light-years away toward the boastful constellation Cassiopeia. This sharp, tantalizing view of the cosmic bubble is a composite of Hubble Space Telescope image data from 2016, released to celebrate the 26th anniversary of Hubble's launch.
