NASA’s SOHO + Mt Redoubt’s volcanic ash clouds

A day late but never a dull moment with spectacular NASA space projects and erupting volcanos puffing their ash clouds our way!

Space Weather News for April 7, 2009
NASA’s GREATEST MISSION? The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) has reached the final round of NASA’s Mission Madness tournament where it is competing against upstart SPB, the Super Pressure Balloon, for the title “NASA’s Greatest Mission.” We endorse SOHO.

~Since the observatory was launched more than 13 years ago, it has revolutionized solar physics and the art of space weather forecasting–and the plucky spacecraft is still going strong. Vote now and help propel a spaceweather favorite to the championship: http://mission-madness.nasa.gov/

VOLCANIC CLOUD UPDATE: Sulfur dioxide emissions from Alaska’s Mt. Redoubt volcano are spreading. A doughnut-shaped cloud about 600 miles wide is now swirling through the stratosphere off the coast of California. Sulfur dioxide and associated aerosols have been known to produce sunsets of exceptional beauty.

~Check spaceweather.com for the latest sulfur dioxide maps to see if you should be looking for volcanic colors this evening: http://spaceweather.com.


Yes, beautiful sunsets. Still, I’d like to know what else volcanic ash clouds can bring to the environment. (And I’m voting for SOHO…you?)

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
