Electron Rain

Another video - this time viewable at www.spaceweather.com (September 21st 2018). NASAs latest rocket into space has been a success, deploying the ICESat-2 which is designed to make 3D laser images of earth's surface in order to keep a tally on glaciers etc. However, a pair of tiny satellites were tucked into the rocket and also successfully deployed as well. They were built by students at UCLA's department of Planetary and Space Sciences - which are designed to monitor the ebb and flow of electrons around our planet.

Electric Bacteria

At https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2018-09/uoc--gbs091118.php ... bacteria that produce electricity have been found in mines and on the bottom of lakes. Now they have found it in the human gut. A common diarrhea causing bacterium, listaria monocytogenes, produces electrictiy in a way hundreds of other bacterial species do. Many of these bacterium are part of the human gut microbiome and amny cause the food releated illness, listeriusis - which can also cause miscarraiges. Other bacterium use electricity and can cause infections and gangrene.

Magnetic Waves

At https://phys.org/print456046461.html ... magnetic waves create chaos in star forming clouds. Stella Offner of the University of Texas in Austin has found that magnetic waves are an important factor driving the process of star formation within the enormous clouds that birth stars. The research is published in Nature Astronomy (September 2018).

SIS Autumn Speaker Meeting

This will inlcude Bob Johnson's talk, 'Why the Electric Universe isn't the same as the Plasma Universe and Why it Matters' ... which will be a two part presentation (with only one other speaker). There wil be breaks in between the 3 parts. Johnson's talk promises to be exciting as he will say the EU differs from the PU by the inclusion of i) recent planetary near collisions with Earth and another celestial body or bodies, ii) the Saturn theory, and iii) the anode sun model of Juergens, the electric sun.

Equinox Cracks

At www.spaceweather.com (September 7th 2018) a fascinating claim. Two solar storms are striking the earth this weekend and in the next couple of days, each flowing from a distinct coronal hole in the Sun's atmosphere. Neither is expected to produce strong geometric storms.

Fungi Corona

Remarkable photograph from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a huge cloud of mushroom spores as a result of a lawnmower blowing apart the fungi and filling the air to create the creating the corona affect - go to www.spaceweather.com September 8th 2018. It is incredible that fungi spores were able to make the colourful rings around the sun but many of us have seen coronas before. They apear when sunbeams hit small particles in the air, scattering and diffracting the light into rings of colour. Droplets of moisture in clouds commonly make coronas - but pollen from flowers can do the same thing.

STEVE not an Aurora

At http://spaceweather.com (Tuesday 21st August 2018) ... the solar wind has sparked auroral storms in the Arctic Circle. It is flowing from a wide coronal hole on the face of the Sun ...

Elve Giant

At www.spaceweather.com (Sunday 19th August 2018) - a giant elve over Russia. High above a thunderstorm in central Russia an enormous ring of light appeared in the night sky - caught on camera by Ilya Jonkowsky. Elves appear when a pulse of electro magnetic radiation from cloud to ground lightning propagates upwards towards the base of the ionosphere.
