Total Solar Eclipse 2017: The Moon's Shadow Moves from Coast to Coast

Watch the moon's shadow move from coast to coast in this geocolor animation from GOES-16 (https://www.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES-16)! The loop begins at 12:27 pm (eastern) and ends at 2:52 pm on August 21, 2017.

This animation comes to us courtesy of GOES-16's Advanced Baseline Imager (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1_XfLFeY84), which can capture an image of the continental United States every 5 minutes! In addition to images of fantastic phenomena like solar eclipses, GOES-16 provides continuous imagery and atmospheric measurements of Earth’s Western Hemisphere, total lightning data, and space weather monitoring to provide critical atmospheric, hydrologic, oceanic, climatic, solar and space data!

Created by NOAA's partners at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (http://www.cira.colostate.edu/), the experimental geocolor enhancement displays geostationary satellite data in different ways depending on whether it is day or night. In daytime imagery, shown here, land and shallow-water features appear as they do in true-color imagery.

Research reveals that nutrients that benefit the brain are naturally good for the heart as well. And this is primarily because the brain requires around 20% of the entire blood pumped by the heart in order to obtain a sufficient supply of energy and fuel. And this proves that if the heart is not healthy and fortified, the brain cells will not be able to continue their optimal functioning.

Here, take a look at the star ingredients of the MIND diet that will help energize your brain, heart and the rest of your body

MyCn18: An Hourglass Nebula

Explanation: The sands of time are running out for the central star of this hourglass-shaped planetary nebula. With its nuclear fuel exhausted, this brief, spectacular, closing phase of a Sun-like star's life occurs as its outer layers are ejected - its core becoming a cooling, fading white dwarf.

In 1995, astronomers used the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) to make a series of images of planetary nebulae, including the one above. Here, delicate rings of colorful glowing gas (nitrogen-red, hydrogen-green, and oxygen-blue) outline the tenuous walls of the "hourglass".

The unprecedented sharpness of the HST images has revealed surprising details of the nebula ejection process and may help resolve the outstanding mystery of the variety of complex shapes and symmetries of planetary nebulae.

Bradley Walsh tapped to be the next Doctor's Companion

It's not surprising that, given the First-Ever Female Doctor (Jodie Whittaker), her Companion would be cast with a male actor. Reading the early morning news from the UK, there seems to be a fair amount of panic in the streets over this one, as Walsh seems most known [1] for his roles in the soap Coronation Street and for his work as a footballer and comedian in the past and as a game show host and singer more recently.

Me, I know him mostly from his work on Law & Order UK, which Chris Chibnall (the new Who showrunner) was the lead writer for, and he did an excellent job in the Jerry Orbach analog role. He can do drama and take things seriously as needed (and I do hope that's more the approach they take). (Actually, knowing Chibnall did L&OUK also adds further confidence in the next era for the Doctor.)

Large Sunspot Facing Earth / Unexpected G2 Storm / Transit of Space Station During the Total Solar Eclipse

Two large sunspots at the Sun. Sprawling sunspot AR2671 has a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbors energy for M-class solar flares. New sunspot AR2672 is crackling with C-class solar flares.

The largest event of the period was a C5/Sf flare at 21/0316 UTC from Region 2672 (N07E61, Dao/beta). The other sunspot group, Region 2671 (N11W18, Fkc/beta-gamma), produced a few B-class flares, the largest of which was a B9/Sf at 21/1103 UTC.
Despite the beta-gamma magnetic signature, this region has been
relatively stable and inactive. However this sunspot has the power to shoot out a burst toward our planet.

There were no Earth-directed CMEs observed in available satellite imagery during the reporting period.

G2 (Moderate) geomagnetic storm warning/conditions met
A G2 (Moderate) geomagnetic storm Warning was issued, valid from 22/0255-0800 UTC (21/2255 - 22/0400 EDT). Shortly thereafter, G2 (Moderate) geomagnetic storm conditions were observed at 22/0259 UTC (21/2259 EDT), due to a sudden enhancement in the solar wind environment. Conditions are not expected to increase any higher, with solar winds continuing to decrease as the day progresses.

iOS 11 beta 7 is out: Here's what's new - Android 8.0 Oreo is now officially-official, but Apple is not lagging much behind – while we still have some time before iOS 11 officially arrives, there's always room for a new beta version of that one to arrive. Guess what, iOS 11 beta 7 is now out, introducing a tiny slew of new features to the mix that are quite likely  ending up in the official iOS 11 version sometime next month. So, what's new in this update. Suffice to say that it's a rather ...

A Total Solar Eclipse over Wyoming.
Image Credit & Copyright: Ben Cooper
Explanation: Will the sky be clear enough to see the eclipse? This question was on the minds of many people attempting to view yesterday's solar eclipse. The path of total darkness crossed the mainland of the USA from coast to coast, from Oregon to South Carolina -- but a partial eclipse occurred above all of North America. Unfortunately, many locations saw predominantly clouds. One location that did not was a bank of Green River Lake, Wyoming. There, clouds blocked the Sun intermittantly up to one minute before totality. Parting clouds then moved far enough away to allow the center image of the featured composite sequence to be taken. This image shows the corona of the Sun extending out past the central dark Moon that blocks our familiar Sun. The surrounding images show the partial phases of the solar eclipse both before and after totality.

Aliens could conquer Earth by following 'dangerous' maps NASA 'foolishly' sent into space | Fox News

'... Voyager was fitted with "golden records", which can be played to reveal natural sounds and even images from Earth.

A similar pulsar map is engraved on the front of the records.

Frank Drake now fears it may have been a bad idea to send the maps into space.

Responding to a request for comment by Fox News, a NASA spokesperson said: "[T]he so-called Golden Records are unlikely to be found anytime soon, as space is largely empty and the Voyagers will not be encountering any other planets or stars in our lifetimes."
