Draupnir: Odin’s Golden Armband

Image from the SWIFT monitoring of Sgr A*. In the stories of the Norse Religion, when Odin’s son is killed, at the funeral Odin places on his son an armband made of gold. Called Draupnir, this armband will drop 8 rings of equal weight on every 9th night. As I have watched the data from … Continue reading

National Ice Center Stops Lying, Just Stops Posting Data

So far during this year's monitoring of total ice in the Northern Hemisphere, NATICE has confirmed only ONE of the multiple rises in ice volume with a green 'gain' in weekly ice totals. The others?? They've decided to report numbers whenever it suites their needs- a day late here, three days early there. Just so … Continue reading

X3 Solar Flare Moves FASTER Than Light

Our Sun has flared an X1 magnetic crochet. For the second time in less than a year, our Sun has shattered the speed of light. How no one can see this as the most important idea in all physics is beyond me. So, here is my post from November. No need to rewrite the original… … Continue reading

X3 Solar Flare Moves FASTER Than Light

The following is from spaceweather.com: SOLAR FLARE CAUSES RARE ‘MAGNETIC CROCHET’: On Nov. 5th at 22:12 UT, the magnetic canopy of sunspot AR1890 erupted, producing a brief but intense X3-class solar flare. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme ultraviolet flash: Radiation from the flare caused a surge in the ionization of Earth’s upper atmosphere–and this … Continue reading

The Equatorial Ozone Hole

In March, 2012, a hole in the Ozone Layer above Greenland appeared suddenly. By the year’s end, a dramatic melting of Greenland’s ice sheet was observed. The Antarctic hole has become a thing of the past. And according to the UN, the ozone layer depletion has stopped. “Mission Accomplished!!” they said back  in 2010. Looking … Continue reading

From The Astronomer’s Telegram: “New flaring activity in PKS 1510-089”

New flaring activity in PKS 1510-089 Subjects: Optical, Gamma Ray, >GeV, Request for Observations, AGN, Blazar, Quasar, Transient Following the bright flare in PKS 1510-089 reported by the AGILE and Fermi-LAT teams in ATel #3470 and Atel #3473 and reports on activities in the radio band (ATel #3500) the Automatic Telescope for Optical Monitoring (ATOM) recorded an increase … Continue reading

Knowledge will KEEP us free… and save your ass!

I am in the design phase of a home electrical generation system utilizing other people’s inventions and designs. It is horrible to say that, I understand copyright law since I am a musician and depend on such protections for income. But it is acceptable to play a “cover” of a song written by a band … Continue reading

The Final 1000 Days: Observations on a Dying World Made by One of Its Inhabitants

Original entry date: 5-20-2010                  945 days   We are now in another stretch of 11 days without sunspots. Though, a 100,000 KM long filament is stretching across the northern limb of the Sun. It is coming into position facing us. We’ve seen solar storms blasting Earth off and on for about two weeks. This one … Continue reading
