    Virga2

    Every weekend we present a notable item from our archives. This EPOD
    was originally published January 2, 2004.

    The above photo shows a picturesque summer shower, captured last July
    about 80 miles or 128 km southwest of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. This
    veil of precipitation actually evaporated before it reached the ground
    and is called virga. Also note the rays from the Sun (crepuscular
    rays), which appear to be escaping the heavy layer of altocumulus
    clouds, slanting in the opposite direction from the rain shaft. The
    weather on this day was typical of what we experienced while
    vacationing near the town of Bluffton, Alberta on July 1 (Canada Day).
    We were rewarded again, about half an hour after this picture was
    taken, with a delicate rainbow over the surrounding fields, all without
    having the holiday picnic rained out!

    Exact Time of Sunrise and Sunset

    February 03, 2021

    Capture

    Photographer: Dario Giannobile
    Summary Author: Dario Giannobile; Marcella Giulia Pace

    The beautiful sunset shown above was photographed without using
    special filters or lenses to enhance its majesty. It was taken near the
    Capo Granitola Light House in Sicily, on August 21, 2020.

    Near the horizon, the Sun passes through a dense layer of
    atmosphere that attenuates its brightness and makes it appear
    red/orange. But this dense layer also generates an apparent slowdown in
    the advancement of the solar disk towards the horizon, causing the time
    of sunset to be different from that reported in the almanacs that don’t
    take into account atmospheric refraction. The amount of time of the
    slowing down of a sunset, as well as the anticipation of sunrise, is
    different everywhere in the world. Of course, it also depends on the
    latitude where you live. At my latitude, the Sun delays its setting by
    about two minutes.

    Defining this gap in time between the actual and apparent sunrise and
    sunset is essential for navigation purposes. Sailors who use
    celestial navigation know the importance of this definition. It’s
    as important as a GPS signal or the beam of light from a
    lighthouse.

    Overshooting Storm Top

    March 03, 2021

    Pablo_PSX_20210116_215520

    Photographer: Pablo Barrios
    Summary Authors: Pablo Barrios Jim Foster

    In most cases when storms ascend through the troposphere, upon
    reaching the tropopause, the storm’s top will flatten out, giving
    it an anvil shape. However, on occasion, a particularly vigorous
    thunderstorm will develop vertically at such a rate that it actually
    passes through the tropopause into the lower levels of the
    stratosphere, resulting in a noticeable prominence. This is
    referred to as an overshooting top.

    The tropopause is turbulent and well mixed compared to the more
    stratified, and therefore stable stratosphere, where the temperature
    increases with altitude. Only the most powerful and fastest developing
    storms can protrude into this more stable portion of our Earth’s
    atmosphere. The level where the tropopause occurs varies from about 5
    to 10 miles (8 to 16 km) but is typically lower as latitude increases.
    Additionally, it’s generally lower during the winter season than in
    summer. Photo taken from La Carolina, San Luis, not long after
    nightfall on January 15, 2021.

    Volcano Villarrica, the Southern Cross and the Carina Nebula

    May 03, 2021

    VolcanoAndCrossSMALLer

    Photographer: Tomas Slovinsky
    Summary Authors: Tomas Slovinsky; Jim Foster
    Shown above is my favorite image from a recent visit to Chile; the snow
    covered flanks of the Villarrica Volcano (9,380 ft or 2,860 m) and
    above it the Southern Cross, just to the left of Villarrici’s
    summit. The Southern Cross is an asterism of the constellation of
    Crux. Within the striking Cross and directly above the summit, the
    dark area called the Coalsack, a massive cloud of light absorbing
    dust and gas, is clearly visible to the unaided eye. It’s referred to
    as the “shadow of the cross.”

    In the upper left corner is another celestial gem of the southern sky,
    the red-colored Carina Nebula. This grand nebula is even brighter
    that the well known Orion Nebula. Again, it can easily be detected
    with the naked eye, but with even minimal magnification, and or
    increased exposure, details such as texture and intensity become more
    obvious. Image taken on December 16, 2020.

    Photographers: Cindy Todd; Teresa Molinaro

    Summary Author: Cindy Todd

    While hiking on the Ontario Ridge Trail in Pismo Beach,
    California, I observed the beautiful sunrise featured above. It had
    been stormy for two days before I snapped this picture, but since the
    rain had stopped overnight, I decided to take a little hike and was
    glad I did as I was rewarded with a stirring sunup. Photo taken on
    March 12,2021.

    Bottom photo showing an i ridescent sunset was captured from the
    terrace of my home in Bagheria, Italy, as mid-level clouds approached
    the Sun. Photo taken on February 5, 2021.

    Archive - Washington, D.C. from Space

    July 03, 2021

    6a0105371bb32c970b011570af88e2970c-600wi

    Today's archive EPOD was selected because this weekend is Independence
    Day (July 4th) in the United States. Every weekend we present a notable
    item from our archives. This post was originally published July 3, 2009
    and was updated to reflect the anniversary.

    Landsat-7 Satellite Image
    Summary Author: Jim Foster

    The Landsat-7 satellite image above features the capital city of
    the U.S., Washington, D.C. Tomorrow, the U.S celebrates the 245th
    anniversary of its independence. From its inception, Washington,
    which sits at the confluence of the Potomac River (lower left) and
    Anacostia River (right center), was built to serve as the capital
    of the fledgling nation. Pierre Charles L’Enfant originally designed
    the layout of the city streets.

    The U.S. Capitol can be discerned near the center of the image, the
    Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial are at left center – directly
    to the left (west) of the Capitol. Just southwest of the Lincoln
    Memorial, across the Potomac River in the state of Virginia, is the
    Arlington Memorial Cemetery. The emerald green peninsula to the south
    of the Capitol is East Potomac Park. At the top left of this image, the
    dark green strip is Rock Creek Park, which noticeably contrasts with
    the bright white of adjacent buildings and homes.
    The donut-like structure to the right (east) of the Capitol is Robert
    F. Kennedy Stadium. Portions of the state of Maryland can be seen at
    upper left and also at lower right.

    This is a natural-color image composed of several bands in the visible
    portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Image acquired May 9, 2005.

    Volcanoes in New Mexico

    August 03, 2021

    Petroglyphnm_small

    Photographer: Tom Wildoner

    Summary Author: Tom Wildoner

    Volcanoes in New Mexico? Indeed there are volcanoes, however,
    they have been inactive for over 150,000 years. The volcano in the
    image above is named the Black Volcano and it is located 5 miles (8
    kilometers) outside Albuquerque, New Mexico. This inactive volcano
    is part of the Petroglyph National Monument and is one of five
    inactive fissure volcanoes in the region. The protected monument is
    composed of a dark basalt rock, on which native populations have
    scribed over 25,000 petroglyphs. These intricate rock carvings have
    since become the namesake for the national monument and the surrounding
    landmarks. In addition to Black Volcano, you can also see a smaller
    volcano on either side of Black Volcano in my image, Vulcan and JA
    Volcanoes.

    Archive - Gurgler Glacier

    October 02, 2021
    6a0105371bb32c970b01b7c85d7cfd970b

    Every weekend we present a notable item from our archives.

    This EPOD was originally published May 23, 2016.
    Photographer: Klaus Sandforth
    Summary Author: Klaus Sandforth

    May 2016 Viewer's Choice Shown above are several ski
    mountaineers entering the Gurgler Glacier in the Ötztaler Alpen
    (Eastern Alps) of Austria. What looks at first sight like a classic
    glacier snout is dead ice of the retreating Gurgler Glacier,
    not far from Schalfkogel Peak, where the group is heading to climb.
    Dead ice is forming in receding glacial environments, where
    distinct ice bodies get separated from the main glacier. Note the
    slightly stratified but mostly crystal clear ice here. The rippled
    surface texture might be caused by differential melting and
    sublimation due to warm air currents, particularly in spring and
    summer. The surface of the ice is perfectly smooth and appears to
    be polished. This structure is rather temporary and fragile as it
    developed only a few years ago and will likely fade away just as
    quickly. Our passage might seem dangerous, but during the winter season
    when temperatures are generally below freezing level, it’s a pretty
    safe place to stay.
    Like many glaciers in the Alps, the Gurgler Glacier lost much of
    its mass in the last 150 years and is now retreating on average a
    few tens of meters every year. Climate change and glacier retreat
    in the Alps has both ecological and economical impacts. Glaciers
    attract tourists and also provide natural water reservoirs and
    hydropower. Photo taken on March 17, 2015.

    Foehn Effect in La Palma, Canary Islands

    November 03, 2021

    0CC1F1E0-D58F-4EDE-ABD6-384D66641489

    Photographer: David del Rosario

    Summary Authors: David del Rosario; Cadan Cummings

    The spectacular photo above shows an atmospheric phenomenon called the
    Foehn Effect taken on the island of La Palma, in the Canary
    Islands. Foehn Effect is a type of wind pattern that pushes a warm,
    unstable air mass upwards over mountains where it cools and
    condenses into a low cloud layer. This effect is usually
    accompanied on the leeward side by a strong adiabatic warming when
    the dry air separates out as it descends down the mountainside. The
    adiabatic warming occurs as a result of the air mass being compressed
    by increasing atmospheric pressure as it descends down the mountain.
    Following the ideal gas law, this compressing force translates to
    an increase in the temperature of the air mass. These strong wind
    patterns are known to worsen wildfires by fanning their flames with
    dry, high speed air masses. Photo taken August 1, 2021.

    Full Moon illuminates Marmolada and Glacier

    December 03, 2021

    The Full Moon illuminates the Marmolada ( 3 343m above sea level)
    and its glacier the largest in the Dolomites. Dolomites Unesco world
    Heritage (1)

    Photographer: Alessandra Masi

    Summary Author: Alessandra Masi; Cadan Cummings

    Today’s featured post features a photo of the full moon and
    Marmolada, which is a mountain located in northeastern Italy. The
    tallest mountain in the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site,
    Marmolada rises to a height of 10,968 ft (3,343 m) at the Punta Penìa
    peak and stands on the boundaries of the Italian regions Trentino
    and Veneto. In total, the area composing the Marmolada system
    and the region nicknamed the “Queen of the Dolomites” encompasses
    approximately 5,456 acres (2,208 hectares). The Marmolada system
    includes two smaller sections, the southern and northern sections.
    Pictured above is part of the northern region near the Marmolada
    Glacier and Punta Penìa. The Marmolada Glacier is unique in the
    Dolomites because it is the only extensive glacier in this region
    of the Alps. In contrast to the Punta Penìa and the rest of the
    northern face, the surrounding region consists of softly rolling
    contours that are covered in woods and meadows before ultimately
    leading to the banks of the Fedaia lake. Photo was taken on
    September 21, 2021, around the time of the full moon.
