NASA / NOAA GOES-13 satellite image showing earth on August 26, 2011 at 14:45 UTC (10:45 a.m. EDT). Hurricane Irene can been seen on the U.S. East Coast.

Irene Almost 1/3 the Size of East Coast. Irene has become a major hurricane, and NASA satellite data shows its diameter is now about 510 miles — roughly 1/3 the length of the U.S. Atlantic coastline. Hurricane watches are in effect for much of the East Coast.

Tropical Cyclone Funso (08S) over the Mozambique Channel

NASA image acquired January 23, 2012

On January 23, 2012, Tropical Cyclone Funso raged over the Mozambique Channel, packing sustained winds of 100 knots (185 kilometers per hour) and gusts up to 125 knots (230 kilometers per hour). The U.S. Navy’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) reported that Funso was located roughly 590 nautical miles (1,095 kilometers) northeast of Mozambique’s capital city of Maputo.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this natural-color image on January 23, 2012. The storm spans the channel between Mozambique and Madagascar, and bears a distinct eye. Coastlines and national borders are outlined in black.

The JTWC reported that conditions were favorable for storm intensification. Wind shear (changing wind speed and direction with altitude) tends to hamper storm development, but Funso experienced minimal vertical wind shear on January 23. In addition, sea surface temperatures in the Mozambique Channel were between 28 and 29 degrees Celsius (82 and 84 degrees Fahrenheit)—warm enough to continue fueling the storm. Different models forecast different storm tracks for Funso, including a slowdown, recurvature, and movement toward the south.

Discovery Space Shuttle Flies Over South Georgia

We received information this AM by email that the space shuttle would be flying over the county where I teach around 12:30 to 1:00 PM. The school was allowed to go outside and watch and listen. We believe that we saw an escort plane and the shuttle. We also heard the sonic boom.

Cape Canaveral has extremely rich and exciting history of space exploration. As such it is more than worth visiting; many wonderful facilities are accessible for visitors of all ages. Seeing for yourself the real devices in which people dared to fly into space and to the moon is an unparalled experience. Visit www.ksc.nasa.gov for more info.

I had to stop taking subs because of the condensation fog onto both
lenses : the tracking webcam+tokina combo, and the dslr lens itself …

Usual amp red-glow at the bottom, I should learn to substract dark frames.

And there are several geosynchronous satellites which got invited : the brightest has
it’s path dotted all across the frame. notice how tracking errors can be seen as the
trajectory looks like saw teeth.

Space Shuttle Columbia (scale model) at the Smithsonian

Space Shuttle Columbia (scale model) at the Smithsonian
Space Shuttle

Image by InSapphoWeTrust
This scale model is part of the spaceflight area, and placed right under the left wing of Discovery.

Columbia was the first spaceworthy Space Shuttle, first being launched in 1981. On its 28th flight in 2003, it was damaged during launch and was destroyed during re-entry.

This scale model portrays Columbia as she would have looked in her early years – the name "Columbia" on the cargo bay door, the American flag on the left wing and "USA" on the right wing, and the NASA worm logo. The black leading wing roots were a unique feature of Columbia.

The space shuttle Endeavour is seen in a hangar at Los Angeles International Airport, Monday, Sept. 24, 2012. Endeavour, built as a replacement for space shuttle Challenger, completed 25 missions, spent 299 days in orbit, and orbited Earth 4,671 times while traveling 122,883,151 miles. Beginning Oct. 30, the shuttle will be on display in the California Science center’s Samuel Oschin Space Shuttle Endeavour Display Pavilion, embarking on its new mission to commemorate past achievements in space and educate and inspire future generations of explorers.

Tropical Storm Dianmu

NASA image acquired August 10, 2010

Tropical Storm Dianmu blew over the East China Sea in early August 2010, traveling slowly toward the Korean Peninsula. On August 10, 2010, the U.S. Navy’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) reported that Dianmu had winds of 55 knots (100 kilometers per hour) with gusts up to 70 knots (130 kilometers per hour). JTWC stated that the storm was roughly 270 nautical miles (500 kilometers) south-southwest of Seoul.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this natural-color image on August 10. The storm, which sports a distinct eye, stretches primarily north-south, sending spiral clouds hundreds of kilometers southward over the East China Sea. Storm clouds skirt China’s eastern coast.
