Annular Solar Eclipse over New Mexico


What is this person doing? In 2012 an annular eclipse of the Sun was visible over a narrow path that crossed the northern Pacific Ocean and several western US states. In an annular solar eclipse, the Moon is too far from the Earth to block out the entire Sun, leaving the Sun peeking out over the Moon's disk in a ring of fire. To capture this unusual solar event, an industrious photographer drove from Arizona to New Mexico to find just the right vista. After setting up and just as the eclipsed Sun was setting over a ridge about 0.5 kilometers away, a person unknowingly walked right into the shot. Although grateful for the unexpected human element, the photographer never learned the identity of the silhouetted interloper. It appears likely, though, that the person is holding a circular device that would enable them to get their own view of the eclipse. The shot was taken at sunset on 2012 May 20 at 7:36 pm local time from a park near Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. Tomorrow another annular solar eclipse will become visible, this time along a path crossing Africa and Madagascar.

Mistério rodeia ilha rotativa na Argentina

ilha-rotativa

Uma ilha circular apelidada de “The Eye” conseguiu chamar muita atenção nas últimas semanas.

Situada no delta do rio Paraná, perto de Buenos Aires, esta ilha de aparência incomum aparenta flutuar dentro de um lago circular minúsculo que mede apenas 120 metros de diâmetros.

Foi descoberto por cineastas que trabalham na pré-produção de um novo filme de terror na área, que é baseado em contos reais de OVNIs, fantasmas e outros encontros paranormais.

A equipe chegou à ilha depois de passar oito horas em pântanos.

“O local era incrível e extremamente estranho”, disse o cineasta Sergio Neuspiller. “Nós descobrimos que a água é incrivelmente clara e fria, algo totalmente incomum na área.”

“A parte inferior é dura, em contraste com os pântanos pantanosos que o rodeiam. As peças do centro flutuam. Nós não sabemos o motivo, mas parecem flutuadores”.

A equipe, desde então, lançou uma campanha no Kickstarter para continuar a investigar o mistério.

“Basicamente, temos um perímetro externo que é quase circular em uma planície inundada … onde as coisas normalmente mudam e são barrentas”, disse o pesquisador Pablo Suarez.

“O que está acontecendo e por quê, e o que deu origem a esta característica incomum?”

This beautiful golden pendant has an adventurous history. It was part of a hoard, including about 20,000 artifacts. Many of them were gold and silver. Found inside six undisturbed nomadic burials, the tombs were from the 1st century CE, built into an existing “hill.” What the mourners probably had not known was that the “hill” was actually  the earth-covered remains of an even earlier archaeological site – this time a fortified Iron Age mud-brick temple. Now comes the adventurous part. The hoard was initially found by an Afghan-Russian team in 1978. But the hoard and its 20,000 artifacts disappeared following the Soviet invasion.  They were feared stolen, looted, dispersed on the black market. But in fact, it had been carefully hidden away for safety during the invasion and subsequent war. The whole thing reappeared in 2004.

Hurricanes Madeline and Lester


The island of Hawaii rarely takes a direct hit from a hurricane. This week, two Pacific storms are lining up to change that. This natural-color image of Hurricane Madeline and Hurricane Lester is a composite built from two overpasses by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite on the Suomi NPP satellite on August 29, 2016.
