The Earth Series South  

I give you my weaving seas and songs of salt 
And the dark of my nights and the spread of
My greens and the free ranging winds and skies
But must you never stop still you find the songs 
Of the snow of the ice of the mad midnight sun

Aurora Australis Taken From ISS


Aurora Australis is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 23 crew member on the International Space Station. Among the views of Earth afforded crewmembers aboard the ISS, surely one of the most spectacular is of the aurora. These ever-shifting displays of coloured ribbons, curtains, rays and spots are most visible near the North (Aurora Borealis) and South (Aurora Australis) Poles as charged particles streaming from the Sun (the solar wind) interact with Earth's magnetic field, resulting in collisions with atoms of oxygen and nitrogen in the upper atmosphere. The atoms are excited by these collisions, and typically emit photons as a means of returning to their original energy state. The photons form the aurora that we see. The most commonly observed colour of aurora is green, caused by photons (light) emitted by excited oxygen atoms at wavelengths centered at 0.558 micrometres, or millionths of a metre. Visible light is reflected from healthy (green) plant leaves at approximately the same wavelength. Red auroras are generated by light emitted at a longer wavelength (0.630 micrometres), and other colours such as blue and purple are also sometimes observed. While auroras are generally only visible close to the poles, severe magnetic storms impacting Earth's magnetic field can shift them towards the equator. This striking aurora image was taken during a geomagnetic storm that was most likely caused by a coronal mass ejection from the Sun on 24 May 2010. The ISS was located over the Southern Indian Ocean at an altitude of 350 kilometres, with the observer most likely looking towards Antarctica (not visible) and the South Pole. The aurora has a sinuous ribbon shape that separates into discrete spots near the lower right corner of the image. While the dominant colouration of the aurora is green, there are faint suggestions of red photon emission as well (light fuscia tones at center left). Dense cloud cover is dimly visible below the aurora. The curvature of Earth's horizon is clearly visible as is the faint blue line of the upper atmosphere directly above at top centre. Several stars appear as bright pinpoints against the blackness of space at top right. NASA photo ISS023-E-058455

The Birth of Tropical Cyclone 5S in Southern Indian Ocean on Dec. 10

On Dec. 10 at 08:55 UTC (3:55 a.m. EST) the MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured this image of Tropical Cyclone 05S in the Southern Indian Ocean.
Credits: NASA Goddard MODIS Rapid Response Team

NASA's Aqua satellite flew over Tropical Cyclone 05S and captured a visible and infrared image of the depression as it formed in the Southern Indian Ocean.

On Dec. 9 at 20:35 UTC (3:35 p.m. EST) NASA's Aqua satellite flew over System 97S as it was consolidating and developing into a depression. The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument captured infrared temperature data on TC05S that showed strongest thunderstorms with coldest cloud tops circled the center. Those thunderstorm cloud tops had temperatures as cold as minus 63 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 52 degrees Celsius). System 97S continued to consolidate and organize and by Dec. 10 became a tropical depression that intensified further into a tropical storm.

Tropical Cyclone 05S (TC5S) formed well to the south of Diego Garcia. On Dec. 10 at 08:55 UTC (3:55 a.m. EST) the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured an image of TC5S showing the bulk of clouds and thunderstorms circling the center. The image showed multiple bands of thunderstorms building from the southern boundary along the western half of the system into the center.

On Dec. 10 at 0900 UTC (4 a.m. EST), TC05S had maximum sustained winds near 35 knots (40 mph/62 kph). It was centered near 14.1 south latitude and 69.8 east longitude, about 439 nautical miles (505 miles/813 km) south-southwest of Diego Garcia. TC05S was moving to the west at 8 knots (9.2 mph/14.8 kph).

Forecasters at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) noted that TC05S has some challenges that include dry air, increasing mid-latitude westerlies (winds) and sea surface temperatures cooling below the threshold needed to maintain a tropical cyclone's strength.

Total precipitable water imagery showed a dense warm core of moisture but a thin ribbon of dry air has started to build along the northern edge of the tropical storm. JTWC noted that this dry air has not yet made it to the core, but will hinder development of thunderstorms over the next couple of days. In three days, by Dec. 13, TC05S is expected to encounter increasing vertical wind shear and cooler sea surface temperatures which will weaken the storm.

Although TC05S is forecast to pass to the east of Mauritus and La Reunion Island from Dec. 12 through 14 while moving in a southerly direction, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center noted that Rodrigues Island is expected to feel effects from the storm. Rodrigues is an outer island of the Republic of Mauritius about 348 miles (560 kilometers) east of Mauritius.

South Africa Seen From ISS

Image Credit: NASA/EarthKAM.org

March 15, 2016: The remotely controlled Sally Ride EarthKAM aboard the International Space Station snapped this striking photograph during a flyover of South Africa on Feb. 9, 2016. The EarthKAM program allows students to request photographs of specific Earth features, which are taken by a special camera mounted on the space station when it passes over those features. The images are posted online for the public and students in participating classrooms around the world to view.

EarthKAM is the only program providing students with such direct control of an instrument on a spacecraft orbiting Earth, teaching them about environmental science, geography and space communications.The project was initiated by Dr. Sally Ride, America’s first woman in space, in 1995 and called KidSat; the camera flew on five space shuttle flights before moving to the space station on Expedition 1 in 2001. In 2011, NASA and Sally Ride Science installed a new camera system in a downward-pointing window on the station. This camera system is responsible for taking and downloading student image requests.

Rivers and Snow in the Himalayas, China and India

Expedition 43: 8 April, 2015

The Himalaya range, near the China–India border.... where peaks cast strong evening shadows on the snow... For millions of years, water has eroded rock from these high mountains and deposited the sediment in ancient, broad alluvial fans. Snow cover highlights these strikingly smooth surfaces, while a trellis-like network of gullies cuts through and casts sinuous shadows. The largest river in the scene has cut a 500-meter-deep (1,650 foot) canyon.

Namibian Coastal Desert

On the southwest coast of Africa, the soft orange sands of Namibia’s coastal desert rise to a rugged interior plateau, with outcroppings of colorful rocks and pale green vegetation. The large coastal desert is one of the oldest in the world, and is caused by a cool ocean current, called the Benguela Current, snaking its way up from the south along southern Africa’s Atlantic Coast. The cold current suppresses rainfall, but contributes to a morning fog that becomes trapped on the surface of some dunes and provides enough moisture for sparse vegetation to grow in some places.

The dunes, pushed up by strong onshore winds, are the highest sand dunes in the world—as high as 300 to 350 meters (1000 to 1167 feet) in places. Rows of linear sand dunes can be seen as alternating ripples of darker and lighter orange in the center of the image. The dune shapes become more chaotic surrounding the mud plain where a river runs down out of the plateau (left of center), but doesn’t make it to the ocean.

This image combines observations from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on June 8 and August 9, 2002, with topographic information provided by the U.S. Geological Survey’s GTOPO30 Digital Elevation Model. The vertical scale has been exaggerated to show more detail of the topography. For another look at the area, check out Astronaut Photo STS103-732-5.

The Window of the Heavens Always Open and Calling: All We Have to Do Is: To Choose to Be Open, Listen and Respond

 

 

 

Imagine a Rose-Boat

Imagine a rose floating like a tiny little boat on this ocean of infinity
And raise your soul-sail on this wee-little boat and go seeking out
All along feed on nothing but the light that you gather only light
Fear shall never fathom you nor greed can tempt nor illusion divert
For Love you are by name by deeds you are love's working-map

 

 

Only in the transparent pool of knowledge, chiselled out by the sharp incision of wisdom, is seen the true face of what truth is: That what  beauty paints, that what music sings, that what love makes into a magic. And it is life: a momentary magnificence, a-bloom like a bubble's miniscule exposition, against the spread of this awe-inspiring composition of the the Universe. Only through the path of seeking, learning, asking and developing, only through the vehicles and vesicles of knowledge, only through listening to the endless springs flowing beneath, outside, around and beyond our reach, of wisdom, we find the infinite ocean of love which is boundless, eternal, and being infinite, it makes us, shapes us and frees us onto the miracle of infinite liberty: without border, limitation or end. There is nothing better, larger or deeper that humanity can ever be than to simply be and do love. The Humanion
