A Heart Shaped Lenticular Cloud
Image Credit & Copyright: Michael Kunze

Can a cloud love a mountain? Perhaps not, but on a Valentine's Day like today, one might be prone to seeing heart-shaped symbols where they don't actually exist. A fleeting pareidolia, the featured heart was really a lenticular cloud that appeared one morning last July above Mount Cook National Park in New Zealand. A companion video shows the lenticular cloud was mostly stationary in the sky but shifted and vibrated with surrounding winds. The cloud's red color was caused by the Sun rising off the frame to the right. Lenticular clouds are somewhat rare but can form in air that passes over a mountain. Then, vertical eddies may form where rising air cools past the dew point causing water carried by the air to condense into droplets. Unfortunately, this amazing sight made the fascinated videographer late for breakfast.

Octdroids
Robots aren’t usually soft and squidgy. But inspired by the octopus, engineers are creating robots that can twist their way around problems that rigid robots can’t handle.

Our Orion crew module has arrived at Kennedy Space Center in Florida and is ready to be processed for its first mission atop our Space Launch System (SLS) rocket. Orion will eventually take us on a #JourneyToMars, but first, the spacecraft is being prepared for a mission past the moon during Exploration Mission-1 (EM-1) in 2018.
