  3. "It unbelievable show last night in the Lofoten islands," says Cooper. No geomagnetic storm was in progress on Sept. 21st when Cooper took the picture. Instead, a minor solar wind stream was brushing against Earth's magnetic field--barely elevating the background density and speed of gaseous material flowing around our planet.
  4. Here in Thurrock, the rain has finally arrived. Wind is accompanying the rain. Hopefully there will be more rain to come for our area, in the next few following days.

  6. EQUINOX AURORAS: Auroras love equinoxes. At this time of year even a gentle gust of solar wind can spark bright auroras around the Arctic Circle. Petra Schneider sends this example of the phenomenon from Hamarøy, Norway:
  7. From next week I will be receiving twice weekly deliveries of bottled milk. I try and buy products made from recycled and/or biodegradable material. I have stopped buying kitchen paper towels and I have bought reusable bamboo kitchen towels. I recycle more, now. In my back garden, I have created a home for nature where I have bird nesting boxes, hedgehog home, small pond as well as growing native wildflowers, trees and shrubs. I have now got a water butt to collect rainwater.
  8. I think that the CET at the end of the month will be between 13.0 and 13.9.
  9. I am waiting for the possible arrival of rain and hopefully it will be more than just light drizzle. There is a blue, sunny sky which has a small scattering of cirrus clouds. The temperature at 11:26 am is 16.6°C and the humidity is at 65%. The barometer pressure is at 1026.6, steady. I have noticed that when the humidity is at 70+, there is more chance of rain in Thurrock along with a lowering of the barometer pressure.
  10. NORTHERN LIGHTS AND A LUNAR FOGBOW: The end of summer is a good time to be in Aslaska. Specifically, on the foggy banks of the Coleville River Delta. Last night, photographer James Helmericks was there, and this is what he saw:
  11. Earlier on in the morning, I saw the moon which I photographed and downloaded. The moon on the photo is very blurred and it is behind the tree's branches. This afternoon there are cumulus fractus clouds against a background of light blue sky. The temperature is 16.5% along with 63% humidity. The pressure is at 1031.3mb, Steady. The mornings and evenings are getting cooler and this morning was especially cool. It was lovely not to have cope with hot sticky humid weather.
  12. IT MUST BE SEPTEMBER: Studies show that September is one of the very best months for auroras. At this time of year around the Arctic Circle, the lights often appear for no apparent reason. That's exactly what happened last night. With no geomagnetic storm to provoke a display, one appeared anyway:
