Intrusion - Too many years ago, a ship I was on had engine failure in the Mid-Atlantic.  A few of us dropped a pilot ladder over the side and went for a swim - to this day I remember that swim.  We had a few kilometres depth of water holding us up! An eerie feeling…..

PREDICTION/FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“NASA has published the first-ever images of Jupiter's north pole and its southern aurora, taken during the Juno spacecraft's first orbital flyby of the gaseous giant.”

“A rare double eclipse was captured by NASA this week when both the Earth and the moon blocked the sun from the view of their Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).“

“Scientists have discovered three giant planets in a binary star system composed of stellar 'twins' that are also effectively siblings of our Sun. One star hosts two planets and the other hosts the third.”

“Solar activity is low, however, it might not remain so. Big sunspot AR2585 is developed an unstable 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbors energy for moderately strong solar flares. NOAA forecasters estimate a 20% chance of M-flares on Sept. 3rd.”
