displays of dancing color (northern and southern lights)
👉🏻What causes the aurora?
💡The “northern lights” are caused by collisions between fast-moving particles (electrons) from space and the oxygen and nitrogen gas in our atmosphere.
These electrons originate in the magnetosphere, (the region of space controlled by Earth’s magnetic field)
As they rain into the atmosphere, the electrons impart energy to oxygen and nitrogen molecules, making them excited.
When the molecules return to their normal state, they release photons, (small bursts of energy in the form of light)
When billions of these collisions occur and enough photons are released, the oxygen and nitrogen in the atmosphere emit enough light for the eye to detect them. This ghostly glow can light up the night sky in a dance of colors. But since the aurora is much dimmer than sunlight, it cannot be seen from the ground in the daytime.
🌈The color of the aurora depends on which gas is being excited by the electrons and on how much energy is being exchanged.
✍🏻Oxygen emits either a greenish-yellow light (the most familiar color of the aurora)or a red light.
nitrogen generally gives off a blue light.
The most active auroras happen when the solar wind is the strongest. The solar wind is usually fairly constant, but solar weather—the heating and cooling of different parts of the sun—can change daily.

Natural laboratory - the aurora is a plasma phenomenon in Earth's upper atmosphere. The magnetosphere and ionosphere act as a huge natural laboratory for studying plasma physics.

The best places to see the aurora are in Alaska and canada🇨🇦 , and Scandinavia, during the late evening hours. Resident of the northernmost US 🇺🇸 – near the Canadian border – typically see auroras several times a year. On rare occasions – perhaps once per decade – auroras are visible as far south as Florida or japan🇯🇵

"Climate change has scientists worried that birds' annual migration and reproduction will be thrown out of sync with the seasons. Because birds' songs are correlated with their breeding behavior and are easily identifiable to species, monitoring birdsong can be a good way to keep tabs on this possibility, and a new study from The Condor: Ornithological Applications takes advantage of this approach to provide new baseline data for the birds of northern California.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife Brett Furnas and William Jessup University's Michael McGrann analyzed data from two bird survey programs from California's Klamath Mountains and Southern Cascades, both of which used automated recorders to monitor bird sounds between 2009 and 2011. In addition to providing the first comprehensive assessment of songbird occupancy over a 40,000 square kilometer region of northern California, they were able to identify the precise dates of peak vocal activity for eight songbird species, and their work shows that this will be a feasible method to track advances in the timing of vocal activity over the coming decades. Species characterized by strong single peaks in vocal activity already tended to reach those peaks later than other species, perhaps because birds with tightly constrained timing are less able to adapt to changing climatic conditions.

"Climate change is disrupting songbird populations, distributions, and breeding behaviors in our mountain ecosystems. Mountains are particularly sensitive because temperature and precipitation interact in complex ways on mountains," says McGrann. (If Neotropical migrants are unable to adjust their breeding behaviors, then there may be a mismatch in the timing of raising their young to the peak availability in food resources, namely insects. Our technique should allow us to track shifts in elevation, changes in the state of the population, and changes in breeding behaviors in response to climate change over the next ten to twenty years)."

Court Orders State Department to Speed Up Delivery of Clinton Emails

The Deep State bureaucracies in Washington give awful life to the cliché that “the wheels of justice turn slowly.” Such has been the case with the State Department and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Last year, the FBI uncovered 72,000 pages of documents that Clinton attempted to delete or did not otherwise disclose. The State Department had been processing these documents at a rate that would have required us and the American people to wait until at least 2020 to see them.

Now I’m pleased to tell you that a federal court judge has ordered the State Department to speed up the processing and production of these emails. U.S. District Court Judge James E. Boasberg ordered State to finish processing the remaining documents by September 28, 2018.

Remember the #irs targeting of American citizens? Remember no one was held accountable for those actions? Remember #loislerner ? Please share if you think these individuals should be held accountable for their illegal unethical actions. #neverforget it's time to not only drain the swamp, but to see these individuals start being indicted and put in handcuffs. That is the only way this type of corruption will come to an end, otherwise they simply know they can get by with all their illegal activity and there will be no consequences.

Again about the Navier-Stokes equations, which describe how fluids flow.
Why are these equations, which describe familiar phenomena such as water flowing through a hose, so much harder to understand mathematically than, say, Einstein’s field equations, which involve stupefying objects like black holes?
The answer, I discovered, is turbulence. It’s something we’ve all experienced, whether flying through choppy air at 30,000 feet or watching a whirlpool gather in the bathtub drain. Yet familiarity hasn’t bred knowledge: Turbulence is one of the least understood parts of the physical world.

The Falcon Heavy static fire test has been rescheduled for no earlier than 3 p.m. EST (2000 GMT) Friday, the opening of a four-hour window.

Updated: 19:57 Stephen Clark

The static fire test of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket is not expected today, and we have not received a new target date for the hold-down firing at pad 39A.

SpaceX's launch team continues to work through testing of the Falcon Heavy ahead of the first static fire at pad 39A.

Meanwhile, launch preps at nearby pad 41 are underway for an Atlas 5 mission scheduled for liftoff Thursday evening, with rollout of the rocket to the launch pad scheduled for tomorrow. A Falcon Heavy static fire at pad 39A is not expected to occur during the Atlas 5 countdown, a ULA official said today, due to shared safety, security and ground infrastructure between the two adjacent pads.

Based on that, the Falcon Heavy static fire is expected no earlier than Friday, but the target date for the hold-down engine firing remains uncertain, and we'll share information as we confirm it.
