Solar System Show over Slovakia



Conjunction of Venus, the Moon, Regulus, Mars, and Mercury.

Regulus, also designated Alpha Leonis, is the brightest star in the constellation of Leo and one of the brightest stars in the night sky, lying approximately 79 light years from the Sun.

Northern Lights over Canada | International Space Station | The spectacular aurora borealis, or the “northern lights,” over Canada is sighted from the International Space Station near the highest point of its orbital path. The station’s main solar arrays are seen in the left foreground. This photograph was taken by a member of the Expedition 53 crew aboard the station on Sept. 15, 2017.

A cap full of water

Brittlegill (Russula sp)

Svartskog, Norway

Of the brittlegills the reds are very common here, but the yellows are much less common and I’ve only encountered a handful of which this is one in a group of two growing in a conifer forest with aspen and birch. The gills are of same color as the cap, so I’m not quite certain of the species as both russula ochroleuca and claroflava both have white gills. The yellow is also mat in dry weather, and not as strong on this one as the claroflava and the locale fits the ochroleuca (linked to conifer), so perhaps it is a variation of the ochroleuca.

No matter what species, edible or not, it is yet another beautiful fungi, displaying yet another color of the immensely diverse palette of the fungi, which this autumn is truly growing in record numbers and keeping me curious about what I will see coming out of the ground the next day.

It is most definitely keeping me busy brushing up on my fungi knowledge as I’m more familiar with flora than fungi as the flowers are much more reliable!

Evidence that harmful mutations can be passed through maternal mitochondria DNA and resistant to being removed by Natural Selection. "So well-documented is French Canadian genealogy that professional geneticists and demographers use the data for research, too. Whenever a small group of people leave a large population (France) to found a new one (New France), they bring with them a particular set of mutations. Some of these mutations will by chance be more common in the new population and others less so. As a result, some rare genetic disorders disproportionately impact French Canadians.

One of these is Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy, which causes vision loss, usually in young men. Recently, geneticists using French Canadian genealogy have reexamined the effects of Leber’s and found a striking pattern of inheritance: It seems to show a long-theorized but never-seen-in-humans pattern called the “mother’s curse.”
[...]
The idea for the mother’s curse goes like this. Most human genes are on chromosomes, but a tiny number are in mitochondria, little power factories in human cells that for reasons of evolutionary history have their own loops of DNA. Sperm do not pass on any mitochondria, but eggs do. Therefore, all sons and daughters inherit their mitochondrial DNA from their mother. If a harmful mutation in mitochondrial DNA ends up in a woman, she will be less evolutionarily “fit” and thus less able to pass it along. But if the mutation ends up in a man, nothing happens. He never passes along mitochondrial DNA anyway.

The trouble comes when the mutation harms men but not women; then there is no way for natural selection to weed it out. The mother’s curse is passed on to her children. (There is no equivalent father’s curse because the Y chromosome is only passed to men and cannot affect women.) For example, Damian Dowling, a geneticist at Monash University, has found a gene in fruit flies that makes males completely sterile but somehow seems to be selected for in females.
[...]
If the mother’s curse is real in humans, that opens up a whole host of other questions in biology. Women usually live longer than men—could some of that difference be explained by mother’s-curse mutations that have accumulated in mitochondrial DNA? (Milot thinks so.) And how is it, exactly, that the same mutation can harmful in men but benign in women?"

Kepler Discovers Pulsations in the Pleiades - The winking stars of the Pleiades are easy targets for backyard observers. They’re also frequent targets for professional ground-based telescopes, polarimeters, and interferometers. So it’s ironic that they’re some of the most difficult targets for sophisticated space-based telescopes. The hot blue stars of the Pleiades star cluster illuminate a large cloud of interstellar dust along the cluster's path. Davide De Martin & ESA / ESO / NASA Photos...
