Cool. Was it possible to see it with your naked eyes?


I didn't see this one directly since I was watching the preview on the camera screen, but others watching said they could see it. It wasn't a very strong one though, since too much of the disk was still in view. It's best when the detached segments are magnified by a mirage and the only part remaining.

One interesting thing from here is having the sun vanish into distant trees. Individual patches of the disk shining through the gaps will sometimes turn green before vanishing, giving a sparkling emerald quality to the last sliver of sun.

The best green flashes I've seen by eye were one from Hawaii, and an extremely intense cloud-top flash from here (but had no camera since I didn't expect it), which went all the way to blue.

We all have an end, but we choose and create that end by ourselves.

anonymousgamer, that's a nice visual! How long did it take to put it together?

Yesterday I hiked up toward a mountain glacier. So in this post I shall share the beauty of glacial ice. smile

Looks like an awesome hike.

Yesterday in Oslo, however, was pretty miserable for hikes. Worst floods in at least 20 years. I measured 74 mm in a few hours. A nice waterspout appeared as well, which is a bit unexpected since they usually form in warmer weather and yesterday had not seen temperatures above 14C.

Waterspout in the news.

It was just in the right position to be captured by one of my meteor cams, but unfortunately the funnel was too thin and far away. This is what the camera recorded, the waterspout is over the fjord at the left side, but only visible with some imagination...

"More rainy than normal" means "a normal summer" in Scandinavia. Because we tend to remember the two or three sunny, warm days of the summer and forget the other hundred rainy ones. :)

Obligatory show-off: 16 years ago I sailed from mainland Norway to Svalbard (for the second time), and wrote an itinerary, in six parts, in Latin. Unfortunately, my Latin writing skills have declined since.

It's generally known around here that our glaciers are retreating, but I haven't been in the area long enough to see firsthand. So I googled for older images of the glacier and found this one on wikipedia from 2003 (taken almost the same day of year), also containing the extent line drawn in for 1985. I overlaid them in GIMP -- it's not perfect since the lenses are different, but you can see it is definitely still retreating. And getting thinner.



We're lucky here in that our climate is strongly moderated by the Pacific, and so is slow to respond to the warming climate. But in another 50-100 years this area will be very different. How different can it get? Well, ~55 million years ago, during the peak of the Paleocene-Eocene thermal maximum, it was tropical here. It is possible to find fossilized palm leaves in the local rock formations from that era. And that's roughly the same climate state we're heading towards now by the end of the century.

midtskogen, neat! I'd love to see a twister or waterspout like that someday. From a safe distance... smile

Is this it? Did a couple sharpening passes, looks like the funnel standing out. Or it looks a lot like the photos in the article at least!

Yes, this is the one (and it kind of looks like another one was close to forming just left of it):


But it's viewed from a distance of 12 km through a fullframe fisheye lens. Actually, such a twister is in some ways the reason why I have these cameras. In 2002 I happened to look out of the window one morning and I saw one in roughly the same place. I looked at it for a minute or so, then I ran to fetch my camera, but just as I was getting the camera ready, it dissolved. That made me figure out a way to hook up a digital camera to a computer to record the view (I still have an archive going back to 2003), and later that evolved into the meteor camera network.

Watsisname, I worked on it on and off for a few days, finding different ways to exploit different effects to get the desired end result. Most of my time was spent tweaking particle systems and making the lighting very flashy and complex.

I like to make NES palette pictures of aliens I believe inhabit the planets I find in Space Engine. Sorry if the attached picture seems NSFW, it's not intentional.

I also make music, but I think I'm still rather amateurish because of my young age.

This is my second attempt at a concert ensemble and I think it turned out fine.
