Do you see it now?
For the third year in a row, 2016 set a new record for Earth's global average surface temperatures. It was the warmest since modern recordkeeping began in 1880. Get the facts:

India’s Cochin Airport: The World’s First 100% Solar-Powered Airport
A solar power plant with 46,150 solar panels has been installed across 45 acres of land near the cargo area of Cochin International Airport (CIAL). It supplies the airport with 50,000 to 60,000 units of electricity per day, making the airport “absolutely power neutral”, according to a statement by CIAL.
The country is trying to move towards greener energy sources, and Cochin airport will definitely set an example for the rest of the country.

Happy news.. 
Google will reach 100% renewable energy for all global operations (including data centers and offices) in 2017:

Eagle Aurora
Spectacular Eagle Aurora over Norway

This wonderful aurora is part of arctic photographs from photographer Bjørn Jørgensen.

Shared by APoD on October 23, 2016, it was taken in Jan. 22, 2012, when a large coronal mass ejection (CME) occurred on our Sun, just five days before this shot, throwing a cloud of fast moving electrons, protons, and ions toward the Earth.

A coronal mass ejection is an unusually large release of plasma and magnetic field from the solar corona. They often follow solar flares and are normally present during a solar prominence eruption. The plasma is released into the solar wind, and can be observed in coronagraph imagery.

Coronal mass ejections are often associated with other forms of solar activity, but a broadly accepted theoretical understanding of these relationships has not been established. CMEs most often originate from active regions on the Sun's surface, such as groupings of sunspots associated with frequent flares. Near solar maxima, the Sun produces about three CMEs every day, whereas near solar minima, there is about one CME every five days.

Regarding the CME, here pointed out, although most of this cloud passed above the Earth, some of it impacted our Earth's magnetosphere and resulted in spectacular auroras being seen at high northern latitudes.

Featured below is a particularly photogenic auroral corona captured above Grotfjord, Norway. To some, this shimmering green glow of recombining atmospheric oxygen might appear as a* large eagle*, but feel free to share what it looks like to you.
