MORNING PLANETS ALIGN: Set your alarm for dawn. Three planets and the crescent Moon are gathering for a beautiful alignment before sunrise. Alan Dyer sends this preview from Gleichen, Alberta

“This was the view on the morning of Sept. 12th, of Venus, Mercury (then at greatest elongation from the Sun) and Mars in the dawn sky, along with the star Regulus.” says Dyer. With Earth in the picture, this was an image of all four rocky terrestrial planets in one frame!”

In the mornings ahead, the crescent Moon will join the show, hopping from one planet to the next.  Venus and the Moon will look especially lovely together on Sept. 17th and 18th, while on the 19th and 20th Venus and Regulus pass one another less than 1 degree apart. Look east before sunrise and enjoy the show! Sky maps:Sept. 17, 18, 19, 20.

Lance Johnson, Natural News 7-27-17… “NASA spacecraft missions have proven that Mars, Saturn, Jupiter and Venus have all suffered “climate change” … without any human activity whatsoever”

Looks like the “climate change is solely caused by man” concept (aka, “agenda”) continues to be publicly debunked. And of course, the data mentioned in this article also goes along with what has been presented by David Wilcock.

“…today there is a global movement that seeks to control these cycles, predict and manipulate the changes that naturally take place on our planet. This climate change movement seeks to control levels of atmospheric gases (primarily carbon dioxide) which humans naturally exhale. This climate change agenda seeks to engineer the Earth’s atmosphere in hopes of changing temperature and weather. The implications are unsettling.

“The climate change agenda is only interested in proving that human activity is causing the planet to warm. Specifically, this agenda wants to target carbon dioxide as the problem… why would carbon dioxide automatically be the “pollutant” to blame?

“…NASA missions have documented climate change on other planets, including Venus, Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter. If carbon dioxide emissions from human activity were the extreme pollutant burning up planet Earth, then why have other planets experienced extreme heating, climate change, extraordinary storms, and massive changes in their atmospheres? None of these planets have humans present to destroy them… The climate change that occurs on other planets puts everything into perspective.

“Mars is warming due to solar cycles… Carbon dioxide released by human activity pales in comparison to natural CO2 release… Storm patterns on Jupiter cause temperature changes not caused by human activity…

“In the fight to prove that carbon dioxide emissions are going to destroy the planet, climate change alarmists are not seeing the bigger picture. Maybe that’s because there is a more sinister agenda behind climate change and a lot of money is at stake.”

Red Planet Heats Up: Ice Age Ending on Mars

Posted in 2016, astronomy with tags , , , , on May 30, 2016 by MARIE EMMANUELLE QUILICHINI

Mars is emerging from an ice age, a finding that could shed light on the past and future climates of both Mars and Earth, researchers said.

The orbit of Mars regularly undergoes changes that greatly affect how much sunlight reaches the planet’s surface, which in turn can strongly alter the Red Planet’s climate. Similar orbital variations called Milankovitch cycles are known to happen on Earth.

Although Mars and Saturn are both moving, they will remain in a triangular formation with Antares throughout the spring and summer, though the shape of the triangle will change.

SPACE Comet Punch Threw Mars’ Magnetism into Chaos

When Comet C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring) swung past the Red Planet in October 2014, it was an unprecedented opportunity for an armada of Mars robots to have a ringside seat of the interplanetary spectacle. But as dazzling as the flyby was, the real drama wasn’t seen by the cameras of Mars orbiters or rovers; it was detected by a magnetometer. And that magnetometer, located 100 miles above the Martian surface, detected chaos.

How to See 5 Planets Align in the Sky This Week

Five planets adorn the morning sky this week — the same quintet of “wanderers” (Mercury to Saturn) our ancient ancestors recognized as being different from the background stars. Head outside about 45 minutes before sunrise and you will see the solar system objects spread out across approximately 110°.

The mystery of the ‘alien plughole’ on Mars

Posted in 2015, astronomy, Galaxy with tags , , , , , on August 28, 2015 by MARIE EMMANUELLE QUILICHINI

An ‘alien plughole’ on Mars that has baffled scientists could have a simple explanation.

Astronomers claim the strange crater, which has a terraced rather than bowl pattern, has been created by water ice.

To confirm their theory, researchers found an enormous slab of water ice just beneath the crater, measuring 130ft (40 metre) thick.

The slab, which covers an area equivalent to that of California and Texas combined, was spotted by Nasa’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, or MRO. ‘Craters should be bowl shaped, but this one had terraces in the wall,’ says Ali Bramson, a graduate student in the University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory.

Terraces can form when there are layers of different materials in the planet’s subsurface, such as dirt, ice or rock. ‘When the crater is forming, the shock wave from an object hitting a planet’s surface propagates differently depending on what substrates are beneath the area of impact,’ Bramson says.

‘If you have a weaker material in one layer, the shock wave can push out that material more easily, and the result is terracing at the interface between the weaker and stronger materials.’ ‘It’s worth mentioning that terraced craters of this size are quite rare,’ added Shane Byrne, associate professor in LPL.

In this area of Mars, named Arcadia Planitia, scientists have discovered a number of other terraced craters.

‘The craters may have formed at different times, but they all have terraces, which indicates something weird is going on in the subsurface,’ said Byrne. Thanks to Mars’ unstable obliquity – the degree the planet tilts on its axis – its climate changes often.

Alien Worlds on Earth Astrobiologist Chris McKay searches extreme landscapes for clues about life on other planet

Chris McKay likes to travel, preferably to exotic, faraway lands. Mars is the usual destination, but Jupiter’s moon Europa and Saturn’s moons Enceladus and Titan are also on his itinerary. McKay, a planetary scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center, ventures to some of Earth’s most extreme environments to study the closest facsimiles he can find to Mars and other distant outposts, on a mission to learn how life might exist beyond our planet. Over the past 30 years, …
