Our weather, the sun, moon, and planets.

First day of March.

Look at our history so far this year: wasn’t there a noticeable turning in the energy when we went from Aquarius to Pisces?

These websites say there were.

First one:

16:17 UT (11:17 UT) – The transit ends with a bang! – an M6.6 flare peaked at 16:11 from AR11967. These images are from just before the flare peak at around 16:00 UT (11:00 EST) again in all 9 SDO/AIA wavelengths.

13:44 UT (8:44 EST) – A first glimpse of the moon just before the transit began. Seen in the SDO/AIA 211 angstrom camera.

SDO observes an extra long lunar transit – stay tuned for data starting after 13:31 UT (8:31 EST).

Lunar transits are not uncommon for the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).

From an earlier post – “Observations of lunar transits are very useful for SDO. They are used to better understand SDO’s pointing. Also, transits allow the SDO scientists to fine tune the telescopes. One problem with telescopes is stray light. If you look at the lunar disk it should be completely black. Close inspection reveals that is it not completely black. This is because a small amount of light not directly from the sun has made its way into the inside of the telescope. By studying how much the lunar disk deviates from being black, SDO scientists can measure and ultimately account for how much unwanted scattered light is making its way into the telescope.”

The SDO mission has observed many examples of the moon moving in front of the sun from the spacecraft’s viewpoint. Some transits are around 30 minutes but these transits are usually not longer than 1.5 hours. On January 30, 2014, from 13:31 – 15:56 UT (8:31 – 10:56 EST) SDO will observe an especially long lunar transit – that’s a duration of around 2.5 hours.

Here is a simulation showing the predicted observation of SDO’s extra long transit observation.

Earthquake Swarms Detected in Santa Barbara Channel

Four quakes in the last week

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -Four recent earthquakes in the Santa Barbara
Channel would – on their own – not be a big deal. Together, they could rattle some nerves.

Two were off Carpinteria. Two were off Isla Vista.

They were considered small, with a magnitude range from 2.3 to 3.1.

Some were felt on shore and residents reported feeling their homes shake or hear windows rattle.

The swarm of quakes can sometimes be part of a pattern in the offshore zone where there are many fault lines.
