Green Sky Sunday

THE WHOLE LANDSCAPE TURNED GREEN: A high speed solar wind stream hit Earth’s magnetic field on July 28th, and is still blowing around our planet now. The effect in Manitoba, Canada, was to turn the whole landscape green:


“Auroras were covering most of the sky, and we had a calm wind,” says photographer Jim Bishop. “I was able to set up my tripod and dash into the shot for a self-portrait.”

Earth’s magnetic field should remain active and glowing on July 29th. NOAA forecasters estimate a 35% chance of G1-class geomagnetic storms around both poles as the solar wind continues to blow.

      Not quite true: In Nevada at night you can see the glorious green glow of nuclear waste deposits, thanks to 93% of the state being owned by the US Guvmint

      (Holy shit, I’m being audited!)

    @ the Birch & Barley after 43 minutes. A flock of small birds flew over right in front of me into the dense foliage of a tree. Later 4 fearless robins in the grass. Just after that 3 little birds flew up to the limb of a tree over the path. The fledgling stayed as I went under so I had a good view of the tinyest bird I have ever seen.

    Having vegetable curry with shrimp and a glass of pinot noir.

    That place is going to the birds, I’ll tweet to that, TWEET!

    I saw an eagle circling above, my hummers got cool nectar and were pigging out like they were at an ice cream parlor.
