Found! First Aurora Beyond Solar System
From EarthSky: Astronomers announced today (July 29, 2015) that they’ve discovered the first aurora ever seen in an object beyond our solar system. It’s also the most powerful aurora ever seen. On Earth, we sometimes call an aurora the northern lights (or southern lights). Thanks to our spacecraft, we’ve seen auroras on other worlds in our solar system, too, for example on Jupiter. This newly found aurora is 10,000 times more powerful than any astronomers have witnessed before. It’s on relatively nearby object, a star-planet hybrid object or brown dwarf called called LSR J1835+3259. The scientists reported the aurora on this object in the July 30, 2015 issue of the journal Nature. Read more: http://earthsky.org/space/powerful-aurora-beyond-our-solar-system

"Suppose you consider Tsipras an incompetent twerp. Suppose you dearly want to see Syriza out of power. Suppose, even, that you welcome the prospect of pushing those annoying Greeks out of the euro.

Even if all of that is true, this Eurogroup list of demands is madness. The trending hashtag ThisIsACoup is exactly right. This goes beyond harsh into pure vindictiveness, complete destruction of national sovereignty, and no hope of relief. It is, presumably, meant to be an offer Greece can’t accept; but even so, it’s a grotesque betrayal of everything the European project was supposed to stand for."
