Aurora Slathers up the Sky


Like salsa verde on your favorite burrito, a green aurora slathers up the sky in this June 25 snapshot from the International Space Station. About 400 kilometers (250 miles) above Earth, the orbiting station is itself within the upper realm of the auroral displays. Aurorae have the signature colors of excited molecules and atoms at the low densities found at extreme altitudes. Emission from atomic oxygen dominates this view. The tantalizing glow is green at lower altitudes, but rarer reddish bands extend above the space station's horizon. The orbital scene was captured while passing over a point south and east of Australia, with stars above the horizon at the right belonging to the constellation Canis Major, Orion's big dog. Sirius, alpha star of Canis Major, is the brightest star near the Earth's limb.

How Groundhog Day Got Started

Groundhog Day wasn’t always about shadows.  At first “the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club,” involved large groups of visitors prowling the hillsides, hunting the groundhogs for dinner. The club was dreamed up by a local newspaper editor, one Clymer Freas. At the time the train from Pitsburgh to a nearby coal plant flashed through Punxsutawney. No one really came to visit little Punxsutawney, they just passed through. So locals wanted a way to make people stop. Groundhog hunts were already a thing, so Freas began using flashy descriptions for the groundhog hunts, hoping to draw larger crowds.

The tradition morphed into an over-the-top weather forecast soon enough, and in 1886, Punxsutawney Phil became the “Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators, and Weather Prophet Extraordinary.”

Residentes da Califórnia (EUA) relatam avistamento de chupa-cabra

Avistamentos da criatura criptozoológica provocaram preocupações com a segurança de animais de estimação locais.

Cary Shuker, residente de Riverside, no sul da Califórnia, estava fora da sua casa quando encontrou uma criatura estranha que descreveu como algo um pouco maior que o coiote com uma cauda semelhante à de um rato.

O animal misterioso, então, teria se dado uma volta e grunhido.

“Estava me preocupado, basicamente”, disse Shuker.

Até agora, três pessoas na mesma área relataram avistamentos da criatura, no entanto, o criptozoologista Loren Coleman, que investigou relatos de criaturas misteriosas há anos, acredita que seja um coiote com sarna do que o lendário Chupa-cabra.

“Os resultados de DNA provam que estes são 100 por cento animais com sarna”, disse ele. “As pessoas rotulam cães com corcunda de chupa-cabras porque amam mistérios”.

Um canal de notícias local fez uma entrevista com Shuker sobre seu avistamento que pode ser visto abaixo:
