What is this in the sky?

A few nights ago it was possible to observe something unusual in the sky over #Aachen, #Germany. For the photographer on the ground, the Sun had already set, but the aircraft, flying at high altitudes remained illuminated by the Sun. What looks like spectacular tongues of fire here are actually fine liquid droplets and ice particles of water that condense on the ejected particles of the exhaust plume or sublimate and scatter incoming sunlight.
The #contrails are therefore illuminated by the Sun.

A NASA já fez muitas coisas incríveis, mas uma que pouca gente sabe é que ela é capaz de fazer chover. E sem nem usar o HAARP!

Gigantic Jet Lightning over China

That's no meteor. While watching and photographing this year's Perseid Meteor Shower, something unexpected happened: a gigantic jet erupted from a nearby cloud. The whole thing was over in a flash -- it lasted less than a second -- but was fortunately captured by an already-recording digital camera. Gigantic jets are a rare form of lightning recognized formally only a few years ago. The featured high resolution color image, taken near the peak of Shikengkong mountain in China, may be the best image yet of this unusual phenomena. The same event appears to have been captured simultaneously by another photographer, further away. The gigantic jet appears to start somewhere in a nearby thundercloud and extend upwards towards Earth's ionosphere. The nature of gigantic jets and their possible association with other types of Transient Luminous Events (TLEs) such as blue jets and red sprites remains an active topic of research.

The unsung heroes of any space mission: #operations team. They are the ones who work 24/7 to ensure that the spacecraft is in the best of health, returning the most data, and functioning at peak efficiency.

ESA’s Education Office is organising a four day course at the #ESAAcademy that will take 22 university students into the fascinating world of spacecraft operations. The course will show how different ‘driving’ a #spacecraft is from designing it.

Se você leu o excelente Calcinhas no Espaço conhece Katherine Johnson, jovem que como nunca fez textão no Facebook nem tirou a roupa em protestos não é popular entre as militantes, mas foi uma das mais respeitadas matemáticas da NASA, numa época em que isso não era profissão de mulher, que dirá negra. Agora sua vida vai virar filme!

Por incrível que pareça nem todo trabalho da NASA é domínio público. Quer dizer, deveria ser mas acabam publicados em revistas de renome, que por sua vez protegem o conteúdo por trás de paywalls. Não mais, agora a NASA está disponibilizando o conteúdo completo de suas pesquisas, online. De graça.

Meteor before Galaxy

What's that green streak in front of the Andromeda galaxy? A meteor. While photographing the Andromeda galaxy last Friday, near the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower, a sand-sized rock from deep space crossed right in front of our Milky Way Galaxy's far-distant companion. The small meteor took only a fraction of a second to pass through this 10-degree field. The meteor flared several times while braking violently upon entering Earth's atmosphere. The green color was created, at least in part, by the meteor's gas glowing as it vaporized. Although the exposure was timed to catch a Perseids meteor, the orientation of the imaged streak seems a better match to a meteor from the Southern Delta Aquariids, a meteor shower that peaked a few weeks earlier.
