Italy Quake

I wasn’t expecting this after seeing an earlier 4.2 quake on the radar today. This wasn’t such a deep routed quake, so I can imagine this was felt quite a distance from the epicenter. But guess we’ll find out soon enough. Hope the old buildings were able to handle such a quake and no fatalities occurred. Peace and love to Italy and its people. 🙂

Get Ready for the first Solar Eclipse of the 20th Century for the Continental USA (western USA).

You’ll be able to see video and pictures at: http://www.nasa.gov/sunearth

During an annular eclipse the moon does not block the entirety of the sun, but leaves a bright ring of light visible at the edges. For the May eclipse, the moon will be at the furthest distance from Earth that it ever achieves – meaning that it will block the smallest possible portion of the sun, and leave the largest possible bright ring around the outside.

SpaceX

Wishing best of luck to SpaceX. Elon Musk.

On Saturday, May 19th, SpaceX will become the first commercial company in history to attempt to visit the International Space Station. Watch the action live on SpaceX.com beginning at 1:15 AM Pacific / 4:15 AM Eastern / 08:15 UTC.

For the first time in history, a private corporation is set to prove it can deliver cargo to the International Space Station. At the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., a Falcon 9 rocket belonging to Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX), is being prepared to place its Dragon spacecraft into orbit on a test mission to the orbital outpost.

“In the line of Fire”

Look how beautiful this shot of sunspot 1476 is.. Like a piece of art! But it’s not so nice, this mega storm is facing the earth and producing powerful flares. If major flares occur today earth is “in the line of fire”.

The night of the SUPER Moon!!! ... My parents decide to step outside to check out the moon around 9pm 5/5/12 in Freehold, NJ- USA To find some bright and oddly patterned flying objects in the sky! Check this video out, completely particular! I'm sort of scared now since I found other videos online across the world, Mexico, Germany.. And who knows where else. Maybe the winter solstice (Northern Hemishere) of 2012 will mark the return of the Ancient Alien/Humani species. What do you think?

Below is the image captured.

Sunspot 1476

20120508-233004.jpg

This group of sunspots are turning towards earth.

The huge sunspot complex, known as AR 1476, rotated into Earth’s view over the weekend. It measures more than 60,000 miles (100,000 kilometers) across!

Big solar flares are often associated with coronal mass ejections (CMEs), massive clouds of solar plasma that streak through space at 3 million mph (5 million kph) or more. If these clouds hit Earth, they can wreak havoc, spawning geomagnetic storms that can disrupt GPS signals, radio communications and power grids. CMEs also often super-charge the northern and southern lights, providing dazzling shows for skywatchers at high latitudes.

Stromboli

One of the 5 most active volcanoes: Stromboli- Italy

Stromboli is a stratovolcano composed of alternating layers of hardened ash, lava and volcanic rocks. The 2002 major eruption caused a small tsunami and damaged Stromboli Village on the north side of the island.

The island of Stromboli is the tip of a massive underwater volcano. The island grows as the volcano continues to pump out fresh lava. A March 6, 2007, eruption added a new 660-foot-wide (200-meter-wide) delta that stretches 160-330 feet (50-100 meters) into the ocean.

I once climbed to the top and got to experience her many amazing explosions! Breathe taking!

Cinco de Mayo- Full Moon

20120505-105620.jpg

Don’t forget to check out the moon tonight! I hope the skies are clear. There will be our most brilliant full moon for the entire year. “Perigee Moon” bigger and brighter, closer to the earth! This photo shows the size difference.
