Weather Shot

I shared this on Facebook yesterday but I’ll share here, too. The new outlook for this hurricane isn’t a good one. Let’s hope this does not verify. If it does verify, we’ll run out of alphabet letters for naming again, like we did in 2005. That means we would have to resort to the Greek alphabet again (alpha, beta, etc). Keep in mind that this outlook does not say these storms will make landfall. If they stay out at sea, we’ll be alright. But, if only one bad hurricane makes landfall….that’s all it takes.

The International Space Station does more than just experiments and circle the earth, they also have some pretty cool stuff attached to their spaceship! “As the wildfire rages in Southern California, an Earth-observing instrument aboard the International Space Station was able to measure its heat and dark smoke plume.” This was from August 1, as a wildfire raged in California. Satellites can oftentimes detect remote wildfires before people can report them. This gives firefighters more time, which is so very critical in wildfire fighting.
