This morning I introduced my twins to the planets, and from 6:10 to 6:40 we watched Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter (in that order in the sky -- as per this chart from EarthSky.org). All are visible to the naked eye, but binoculars help for Mars and Mercury. My next project is to science the crap out of entrepreneurship. I'll keep you posted!

a great article about my favorite blog!
Going deep with the founders of Wait But Why, who show that thoughtful, long-form content is king.

Amazing video that my friend +Scott Manley put together. Shows all the asteroids we've discovered in the last 45 years.

Entropy based definition of Chaos.
 
A new definition of the inherent unpredictability of chaos could reveal seemingly smooth situations that have a hidden propensity for chaos

Domo-kun strikes again. I never thought I'd see this juxtaposition, but then again we are in Silicon Valley.

Cool shot!
 
Aurora in Kvaløya, Tromsø, Norway
Anne: "The coldest day this winter gave us us an evening with clear sky and some beautiful auroras. The show was worth my cold toes. This panorama consists of eight photos. Nikon D610, Nikkor 14-24, f 2.8, ISO 3200, 10 seconds"

Amazing flight captured by my friend +Alex Lapidus who let the overcast morning make a perfect backdrop!

Together, Flying Free

Large, colorful, and plenty noisy, the Hyacinth Macaws (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus) are the royalty of the macaws and parrots. Like many other related species, they form long term pairs.  They are threatened by the cage bird trade, in addition to habitat loss, so please never encourage the keeping of these birds as pets (especially not alone).  I photographed these birds in the Refúgio Ecológico Caiman, in Brazil's Pantanal, where they are fairly well protected; the white sky is not processed, just a function of an overcast morning and having to expose for the birds.

My Brazil album is at https://plus.google.com/photos/104294083885937159989/albums/6188255514953762913 ; prints available at http://www.alexlapidus.com .
