Sun Spots, Solar Flares, Aurora Borealis and …

March 11, 2012

Have those of you in the ‘northern’ states tried to see any aurora borealis from the sun flares (specifically Sunspot AR1429) happening lately? Northern Lights were spotted in the United States as far south as the Dakotas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Oregon, Wyoming, Illinois, Montana, and Kansas. Goddard Space Weather Lab is sharing some very interesting interactive information on What’s up in Space?? There are photos there from each of the states mentioned. The Oregon one is from Beaverton, Cyndi!

‘What ifs’ for solar flares are discussed in the National Geographic News.

For ‘solar’ music and super photos, check out AuroraBorealisPage. The main page is here and it is well worth your time to checkout the totally awesome photos and videos available. Several webcams are here. Awesome video if you have a Facebook account is at ArticLightPhoto which I ‘liked’ separately for its awesome display!

Ole Salomonsen also has the video and more beautiful aurora borealis photos posted on Flicker here where there are also many more contributors to the Northern Lights group. LoneStarNorth posted recent Minnesota Northern Light photos there as well.

Grunion Run of 2012 – 8 pm Program at Cabrillo Marine Aquarium Tonight!

March 10, 2012

The Grunion Run of 2012 has started! – If you can make it, it would be fun to attend the 8 pm Program at Cabrillo Marine Aquarium in San Pedro, CA, for their Meet the Grunion Program followed by a visit to the beach to see these little fish for yourself! Here is more information about the program at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium.

What is a Grunion Run????? Grunions are little fish only found along the Southern California Coast and northern Baja California. There are all kinds of jokes about going to see the Grunion Run along various CA beaches because it happens late at night.

Here is a video from National Geographic:
