clouds above the Poles

27 October 2014

At http://phys.org/print333394180.html … astronomers are looking at strange clouds in the upper atmosphere of Titan, as seen by NASAs Cassini Mission – see also www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php Oct 24th. These are described as methane ice clouds and they are situated above the Poles of Titan. The interesting thing is that the Earth  also has stratospheric clouds which are also above the Poles.

Meanwhile, NASAs Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has detected a burst of high energy blasts emanating from a magnetar. This happened in 2009 but a relook at the data has discovered evidence of what appears to be seismic like waves rippling through the magnetar – see www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2014/10/ … and scroll down to October 22nd. Other news from the same day includes solar wind and how it might affect manned space missions – and signals coming from the edge of the observable universe.
