More earth from space. The Northern lights are far out!  :o I actually made out some GREEN colored landscape in Mexico or possibly Central America. See if you can spot it.  8)

A spectacular display of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) overhead in the Brooks Range of Alaska, deep in the Gates of the Arctic National Park.

Many other beautiful photos at link:

The View From Space: Dynamic Spring Weather in North Atlantic Waters
Press Release - Posted by Keith Cowing Source: NASA
Posted May 28, 2015 10:06 AM


Physical oceanographers will sometimes point out that the ocean has weather and seasons, much like the atmosphere.

Masses of water with different temperatures, salinities, and nutrient levels clash and mix like warm and cold fronts in the air. Different plant-like species"phytoplankton"bloom, spread, and die back with the different conditions. Ocean currents swirl in turbulent fronts and eddies"much like tornadoes and hurricanes, though far more productive than destructive.

Springtime in the North Atlantic Ocean is a time of great change, turbulence, and productivity. Increasing sunlight, nutrient runoff from land and upwelling from the deep, and changeable atmospheric weather all conspire to color the ocean surface with interesting patterns.

 
©NASA North America download large image (4 MB, JPEG, 3994x3395) (at link)

The composite image above shows the northwest Atlantic Ocean on May 14, 2015, with the New England and Canadian Maritimes in the background. The image was constructed from data acquired by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) sensor on the Suomi NPP satellite.

On the left side of the image, several circular patterns are traced out by the light green phytoplankton near the surface. These rings are likely eddies that have spun off of the Gulf Stream, which turns east toward Europe in this region.

The underwater plateau known as Georges Bank is also made visible (indirectly) by the plankton. The Labrador Current and the Gulf Stream meet in this area, and the relatively shallow water promotes an abundant crop of phytoplankton, marine plants, shellfish, finfish, and marine mammals, all the way up the food chain. The bank is marked by bright swirls of color in the image.

Patches and swirls of phytoplankton continue to the north and east from the bank, indicating regions where there are significant nutrients near the surface and other water conditions that promote blooms. Though it is very difficult to identify the genus and species of phytoplankton from a satellite, researchers working from ships in the North Atlantic confirmed that at least some of the phytoplankton blooming in May were diatoms, including Guinardia delicatula.

The Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank have historically been some of the most productive fishing grounds on the planet. Overfishing and pollution brought significant declines in the late 20th century, though regulation and changes in fishing practices may now restore some of the abundance in the local waters. Researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, North Carolina State University, and NOAA have been regularly monitoring the region with ship-based studies, ocean models, and automated, moored instruments in order to keep track of phytoplankton and algae species, particularly those that lead to toxic algae blooms.

THE ARCTIC

Great Beluga whale underwater scenes! Watch two polar bears discuss Nietzsche's territorial imperative   ;D. Enjoy the Northern Lights. 

I liked this video because there is ZERO narration . All you hear are the sounds of the wind, waves, ice and the animals in the film. Enjoy! 

If you want to watch Polar Bears or a host of other animals live in different parts of the world, go to the link below:

Planetarium. Explore The Sky From Your Desk.

Submitted by rob.schifreen | Last update on 14th January, 2016 - 5:49am

If you'd like to explore the sky but you don't have access to a powerful telescope, then this free online planetarium is arguably the next best thing.  It's all web-based so there's nothing to download or install.  Just head to http://neave.com/planetarium/ and enter your location, to start exploring the constellations and planets.


And unlike a conventional telescope, this web-based one can transport you to anywhere in the world.  There's no need to start from the viewpoint of your actual current location if you don't want to.

AG put up the trailer to this film on his newz channel, and it turns out the full movie is available on YouTube.  Beautiful visuals from what I have watched so far.

Green: Vegetation on Our Planet


Jun 19, 2013

Although 75% of the planet is a relatively unchanging ocean of blue, the remaining 25% of Earth's surface is a dynamic green. Data from the NASA/NOAA Suomi NPP satellite is able to detect these subtle differences in greenness. The resources on this page highlight our ever-changing planet, using highly detailed vegetation index data from the satellite, developed by scientists at NOAA. The darkest green areas are the lushest in vegetation, while the pale colors are sparse in vegetation cover either due to snow, drought, rock, or urban areas. Satellite data from April 2012 to April 2013 was used to generate these animations and images.
