Look at this....called, MORNING GLORY, happens in Nth Aus, Gulf of Carpentaria





from space



“The Lonely Planet described it as the most spectacular thing you can see in the sky aside from a total eclipse and most Australians have never heard of it. If it was properly promoted it would bring a lot of tourism to the area.”

“Early in the morning the sky is perfectly clear except for a low bank of what looks like fog on the horizon. Within 15 minutes, it’s got bigger and there’s a gap underneath and within half-hour it’s so close it’s like a huge cloud topping out at about 3000 feet.

“It’s dead still, then the winds come up and air moves up and it gives it the appearance of a rolling cloud, of ripples in the atmosphere,” says Mr Bennett.

“It looks like the sky is torn. It obliterates the sun and that continues until it rolls over and then everything returns to normal.”

“They are usually about 1-2km in height and can span up to 1000km in length.

Two fronts meet over Cape York and head west across the Gulf of Carpentaria. At night, air over the Cape cools and slips under a layer of warm air to form “turbulent cylinder like waves”, he says, that roll across the waters and then dissipate over land.

What the world really looks like



What we learn, and some never are taught - this is an illusion
The traditional map of the world, known as the Mercator map, may be the most often seen image of our planet but it is also considered highly inaccurate because Antarctica etc, greatly distorted.
Australia ....

Is more than 3 and a half times larger than Greenland.

Go outside tonight...because you may get to see this!



A PHENOMENAL space event is headed for earth and could hit Australia tonight.

Aurora australis is just like the northern lights that mainly occur around Sweden and Iceland, but it instead lurks in the southern hemisphere.

It’s mostly visible from Antarctica, New Zealand and Tasmania, but those at the bottom of Victoria and South Australia may catch a glimpse as the lights move towards the country.



Auroras are best seen at night between 11pm and 2am.

It is more visible when there is a low level of moonlight and you’re away from cities.

The further south you go, the more likely it is you will spot a spectacular aurora.

....this kind of solar activity peaked around every 11 years while the sun was in the solar maximum part of its cycle.

It’s as if the sun has a heart that beats every 11 years, setting free the solar wind.

Providing there's no cloud cover, I'm out there. Just as well my chances are better here in Melbourne.

I lived in Tassie for a decade or so, night skies are usually weird down there. Often have a strange glow or greenish tinge.
And often there is a pinkish night haze.
I never saw the full on lights.
