Halo complex - 18 December 2009

Submitted by: Beth Katz at Sat Dec 19 01:36:01 2009 UTC

We have a snowstorm coming in and had a spectacular natural halo complex this afternoon. This picture was taken with my iPhone and shows a circumzenithal arc, supralateral arc (very faintly), upper tangent arc, and colorful 22-degree halo. The halo went around the sun to the horizon. There were also sun dogs and a bright blue glow at about 60 degrees around the parhelic circle. I have movies to capture it all and better pictures on my camera. But this was probably the peak of the CZA colors. From Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Copyright (c) 2009 Beth Katz, katz@cs.millersville.edu.

Why is there so many planes in the sky

Submitted by: Remi Boucher at Sun Oct 10 01:49:01 2004 UTC

Apparently, all these planes were coming from Europe and were passing over Sherbrooke to avoid the jet-stream. Many people in town noticed this unusual aerial traffic over our heads. I took this picture in Infra-Red (IR) with my digital camera and a special filter to block the visible light and collect only the IR light (invisible for the human eye). IR light gives a better contrast between clouds and blue sky. I counted 25 contrails in this picture.

Details : Nikon Coolpix 4500, 88A filter, f/2.9, 1sec., at 200ISO

An Imperfect World.

Submitted by: Graham Palmer at Wed Jun 25 08:50:01 2008 UTC

Science once held that the universe outside our world was a perfect one, with all objects out there being a glorious testament to the divine creator. That idea came crashing to earth in 1609, when Galileo Galilei pointed his home-made telescope at the moon and found it was a rugged, mountainous and cratered world. The illusion of perfection was shattered. Photo details: Canon 350D, ISO 400 @ prime focus through an 80mm Vixen refracting telescope, 1/320th second exposure. Image copyright to Graham Palmer.

If you are in the 50 to 65 degres latitude, sometimes, in the summer, a phenomrnon called the noctilucent clouds can be seen. They are clouds that are very high (80 km up in the air) and those clouds reflect the sunlight after it has set and is between 6 and 12 degres below the horizon. Thats why you need to be in the higher latitudes. Too low and the sky will be too dark, too high and the sky wont be dark enough to see them! I'm at 53.5...lucky enough to see them! Enjoy!

Mountain Lights

Submitted by: louis greene at Mon Feb 16 01:37:01 2004 UTC

This image was taken on Feb 11th (technically the 12th most likely) There was no moon so the foreground is dark despite the snow. The Lights got pretty good for a few spells but there was just enough of a really thin and high cloud layer to affect the cl arity. Yet, as always it was great to be out and see the action.
