A full-disk multiwavelength extreme ultraviolet image of the sun taken by SDO on March 30, 2010

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, SDO the space telescope designed to study the sun released it’s first images this week and they are spectacular.

Launched on February 11th from Cape Canaveral, the observatory has spent the past two months moving into a geosynchronous orbit and activating its instruments. As soon as SDO’s telescope doors opened, the spacecraft began beaming back scenes so beautiful and puzzlingly complex that even seasoned observers were stunned, reported NASA.

“The Helioseismic Magnetic Imager (HMI) is performing splendidly,” reports HMI principal investigator Phil Scherrer of Stanford University. “We’re getting very high-quality, high signal-to-noise data.”

The Extreme UV Variability Experiment (EVE) is online, too, “and we’re getting great data as well,” says principal investigator Tom Woods of the University of Colorado, Boulder.

EVE monitors the sun where it is most variable—in the extreme UV part of the electromagnetic spectrum. At these wavelengths, the brightness of the sun can rise and fall a hundredfold in the blink of an eye, heating and “puffing up” Earth’s upper atmosphere, and dragging down satellites. EVE measures these changes with unprecedented time and spectral resolution.  http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2010/21apr_firstlight/

HMI and EVE and the entire SDO seems to be operating splendidly, but unfortunately it took three weeks for NASA to reveal any images. Unprecedented time should allow for real time images, but us mere earthlings will have to wait another month for daily images.  The implications of such detailed events on the sun will surely have this tinfoil hat wearing observer looking to coordinate data, to earth events like volcano’s and earthquakes.

The observatory is still being commissioned, and a good deal of testing and calibration remains to be done before regular, daily images become available in mid-May.

SOHO MDI Image. A bald sun for today.

Spotless Days
Current Stretch: 8 days
2010 total: 15 days (13%)
2009 total: 260 days (71%)
Since 2004: 785 days
Typical Solar Min: 485 days via http://www.spaceweather.com/

All looks calm on the sun today, unless you look at the images from STEREO from behind. 

Itunes offers a free app for SOHO (SOHO Viewer) and also STEREO (3D Sun) and for $1.99 the Solar Monitor app is well worth it in providing additional information with the images.  All three are in near real time.

Someone needs to comes up with an application that links solar activity to earthquakes and volcano’s, but it won’t be me.  Maybe take it farther to coordinate with seismographs around the world?

If one exists, do tell or share your favorite app or link in the comment section for space and science news.

While the sun has had no sunspots for 8 days, here on the 3rd planet  from the sun, Earth is still tumultuous.

There have been three 5+M Earthquakes this morning alone: Bio Bio Chile 5.9M, Eastern New Guinea 5.3M, Guam 5.4.

The Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland has ongoing eruptions. http://en.vedur.is/Much of Europe air travel seems to be operational, either flying above or below the invisible ash cloud. The Shiveluch, and Kliuchevskoi volcano’s in Russia are showing increased seismic activity and increased thermal anomalies as well. 

The Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System provides near real-time alerts about natural disasters around the world at http://www.gdacs.org/ 

A pat on the back to The Solar Dynamics Observatory team.  Now get busy so we can see what’s going on up there, because down here the Earth sure seems pissed.  

Mmmm, I wonder if you turned the SDO toward earth for images what we would discover. 

Don’t for forget about the LYRID METEOR SHOWER: It peaked yesterday, April 22nd and is caused by the Earth passing through a stream of debris from Comet Thatcher (C/1861 G1). The best time to look is during the hours before dawn.

Absolutely freaking amazing.  People have found a way to conclude that the current cold affecting most of America is due to global warming.   It is Winter, idiots.  Contrary to fact that global temperatures have been steadily cooling since the 1940’s, environmentalists have created a whole industry centered around the lie that mankind has some influence on weather.  

As far as what has been reported to the public, we humans have no way to decrease or increase the planet’s temperature.  Barely a footnote in the media,  is all the research that has been underway for years to, in fact- change the weather. 

“The US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use. Environmental modification techniques have been applied by the US military for more than half a century. US mathematician John von Neumann, in liaison with the US Department of Defense, started his research on weather modification in the late 1940s at the height of the Cold War and foresaw ‘forms of climatic warfare as yet unimagined’.http://ppjg.wordpress.com/2008/03/04/haarpintentional-weather-manipulations/ 

I find it much more likely indeed that, “The US military has developed advanced capabilities that enable it selectively to alter weather patterns. The technology, which is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), is an appendage of the Strategic Defense Initiative ‘Star Wars’. ” 

Established in 1992, HAARP, based in Gokona, Alaska, is an array of high-powered antennas that transmit, through high-frequency radio waves, massive amounts of energy into the ionosphere (the upper layer of the atmosphere). Their construction was funded by the US Air Force, the US Navy and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).  Operated jointly by the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Office of Naval Research, HAARP constitutes a system of powerful antennas capable of creating ‘controlled local modifications of the ionosphere’. According to  its official website, http://www.haarp.alaska.edu/  There is also an interesting link to an article on Weather Warfare by Michel Chossudovsky, The Ecologist, December 2007  that merits a glance at http://globalresearch.ca/articles/haarpecologist.pdf.

 

 

While we expect Sarah Palin’s Alaska to be cold http://www.mountainweather.com/alaska.htm  “Extreme temperatures — in Johnson’s case about 60 below zero — call for extreme measures in a statewide cold snap so frigid that temperatures have grounded planes, disabled cars, frozen water pipes and even canceled several championship cross country ski races.  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090108/ap_on_re_us/alaska_extreme_cold

We’ve seen snow in Las Vegas and even in Hawaii this Winter.  The odds makers must be realigning statistics that it will happen again based on reports from the National Climatic Data Center.  This will be America’s coldest year since 1997, thanks to La Niña and precipitation in the central and eastern states.   Throw in the Sun’s Solar quiet and we see another reason for global cooling- not global warming. Sunspots and solar radiation are approaching  the minimum in the Sun’s cycle, corresponding with lower Earth temperatures.  National Snow and Ice Data Center has found that the extent of Artic sea ice has  expanded by 13.2 percent over last year.  This 270,000 sq mile  growth in Arctic sea ice is just slightly larger than Texas’s 268,820 square miles. http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=NGYzMzA2MzEzZTI4YjAxOTZhMGY4N2YwOTVmZWIzOTg=

Yet , we have our next President- Obama -about to spend millions of our tax dollars to inhibit climate change.  “Few challenges facing America – and the world – are more urgent than combating climate change. The science is beyond dispute and the facts are clear…  said Obama at http://change.gov/newsroom/entry/president_elect_obama_promises_new_chapter_on_climate_change/  Maligned facts got us into the Iraq war and choosing to believe these facts as truth, is equally reprehensible.

One small bright spot in this political climate of change is that Al Gore will not have an official part in the next administration.   Gore, who won the Nobel Peace Prize for climate change is among the nation’s worst energy hogs. Al’s carbon footprint was twenty times that of the average American household http://tennesseepolicy.org/main/article.php?article_id=764

Obama does not fair any better at preserving climate change with his inauguration, The Institute for Liberty has created a carbon footprint estimate for the Obama inauguration itself and estimates more than 500 million pounds of CO2 will be released during the four-day inaugural but goes farther to say that study isn’t entirely accurate. “We haven’t looked at the methane or CO2 that will be expended by people standing on the mall.”

The Institute goes on to say, ” they should not have to be lectured — or regulated or taxed — by officials who appear, at best, to conveniently forget their own rhetoric when celebrating their success.”  http://thechillingeffect.org/wp-content/themes/paalam-11/CarbonBigfoot.pdf.  Um- no one should be lectured, taxed or regulated by the government into buying deadly mercury filled light bulbs or any other product that supports a greener world- unless of course they want to. 

 

Who knew the amount of  hot air coming from Obama supporters on the Mall in D.C for the inauguration, could in fact, be precipitous to altering the climate.  Political climate yes, weather climate? 

I am ROFLMFAO, farting, freezing, watching the snow fly with my old fashioned, mercury free light bulbs on.  Oh yeah, I am burning through the BTU’s with the furnace on too.

In typical media bias, Reuters is reporting that the massive fires over the November 15, 2008 weekend that devastated more than 20,000 acres and numerous residences was of course caused by, global warming.  Reporters Dan Whitcomb and Jill Sergeant of Reuters wrote,  “California’s fire season, which traditionally ran from June to October, has been a year-round menace as global warming has brought higher winter temperatures and less rainfall.” http://www.reuters.com/article/newsOne/idUSTRE4AG0Z320081117

Oh, contra-ire mi com-padres, investigators say the fire that destroyed more than 1000 homes in the Santa Barbara and Montecito region was “human caused.” http://www.mercurynews.com/news/ci_11004172?nclick_check=1 Doug Lannon, a spokesman with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, said Sunday that investigators have eliminated all accidental causes of the fire. The fire began Thursday night in a Montecito landmark called the Tea House. Lannon said the area is a popular hangout for teenagers, and it’s possible someone was smoking in the brush or started a campfire there.

Yes, we need to protect our environment.  I don’t want to swim in a cess pool of garbage in our oceans and I don’t like breathing in smog, but in a prediction that differs from most in the public domain, I believe that there is evidence of cooling and I am not alone. 

David Archibald at the International Conference on Climate Change, March 2008 writes, “We have to be thankful to the anthropogenic global warning proponents for one thing.  If it weren’t for them and their voodoo science, climate science wouldn’t have attracted the attention of non-climate scientists, and we would be sleepwalking into the rather disruptive cooling that is coming the next decade.”  http://www.warwickhughes.com/agri/Solar_Arch_NY_Mar2_08.pdf On Archibald’s site you can read more scientific data supporting the claim we are going to be colder.  http://www.davidarchibald.info/

Last year, barring our annual snow bird migration to Florida, here in the upper quadrant of the States, we froze and it was in fact the 54th coolest winter since national records began in 1895. http://www.farmersalmanac.com/weather/a/record-breaking-winter-weather-from-2008.  Don’t buy into the Farmer’s Almanac as reliable?  “Evidence has been supplanted by hard scientific fact. All four major global temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA’s GISS, UAH, RSS) have released updated data. All show that over the past year, global temperatures have dropped precipitously.  http://www.dailytech.com/Temperature+Monitors+Report+Widescale+Global+Cooling/article10866.htm and

Recent data from the Ulysses spacecraft, a joint NASA-European Space Agency mission, shows that sun has reduced its output of solar wind to the lowest levels since accurate readings became available. http://www.nasa.gov/home/hqnews/2008/sep/HQ_08241_Ulysses.html  Furthering the claim that it is simply getting colder, not warmer.

The faulty reporting from Reuters reminds us how often times governments and citizens are coerced by a minority to act and legislate against a problem that does not exist, and that we really have no control over at all.  The fire has obviously scarred peoples lives and the earth but Reuters continues to loose credibility to The Associated Press, UPI, and CNNewsWire when it’s reporters rely on their own assessments in reporting the news. 

Just the facts, please.  As a side note, in politically correct circles, global warming has been rebelled  climate change.  Stay warm friends.
