South Pacific Superstorm Update, Sierra Nevadas Melting, Meteor Shower and More
MAY 6, 2017: Update on the massive cyclone in the South Pacific. Cyclone Donna, a devastating superstorm slowly strengthening and barely moving in the direction of New Caledonia. Food, fresh water and shelter are needed.
May 6, 2017: Receiving reports from locals in the Sierra Nevadas saying the snowpack seems to be melting much faster than they have noticed in previous years. Above normal temperatures, Intense UV (quote) and the current heavy rain appear to be unlocking the #motherload of snow that is sitting up on the mountains...its coming down.
May 6, 2017: Should be entering the "peak" of the Aquariids. If you want to have a chance to see a potentially good sky show get up around 3:45 am if you have clear skies, go outside and just look south...you'll see them. Northern Europe (Meteorscan.com) reported 175 per hour at 4 am which is really good.
May 7, 2017: Witnessed this myself at a fall high school football game from top of the bleachers. I know, the technical term for this phenomenon but what puzzles me is why don't we see this everyday, instead of just on rare occasions. Is the vacuum of space at the top of the atmosphere causing this or simply just light uniquely trapped and diverted by the inner atmosphere...just curious and always ask myself those questions when I see this, which isn't very often. Filmed this myself...
