Here is the UFO Headline News for Friday August 11th, 2017
Headline #1: Perseids To Peak This Weekend!
Synopsis: This weekend – August 11-12 and August 12-13, 2017 – are the peak nights of the 2017 Perseid meteor shower. Watch from late evening until dawn on both nights. The greatest number of meteors typically fall in the wee hours before dawn, and on a moonless night, you can often spot 50 or more meteors per hour. But this year is far from moon-free. In 2017, a bright waning gibbous moon lights up the sky after midnight. Still, the Perseids are well worth watching. A good percentage of these meteors should be bright enough to overcome moonlit glare. Plus, you can minimize the moon to maximize your enjoyment of the meteor shower.
Headline #2: Solar Eclipse Facts From NASA Scientists
Synopsis: After months of waiting and planning, the solar eclipse is finally almost here! Maybe you’re one of the lucky ones traveling to catch a glimpse of the solar eclipse in action. Or perhaps you’re someone who has to sit this one out at work and wait for the next solar eclipse in 2024. Whatever the case, six NASA scientists took part in a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) to answer all of your eclipse-related questions. Six scientists participated in the AMA: Noah Petro, a NASA post doc; Alexa Halford, a contractor at NASA Goddard; Mitzi Adams, a solar scientist for NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center; Bill Cooke, head of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office; and Jay Herman and Guoyong Wen, both atmospheric scientists. They answered a variety of questions and stressed the importance of solar eclipse safety.
Synopsis: Two potentially habitable “super-Earths” orbit a star just 12 light years away that is our nearest sun-like neighbour, scientists have discovered. The worlds at the edges of Tau Ceti’s “habitable zone” belong to a solar system of four rocky planets similar in size to Earth. British-led astronomers speculate that the system might be a potential candidate for future interstellar colonisation. But life on the new outposts may be far from peaceful. There is evidence of a massive debris disc circling the star, increasing the chances of the planets being pounded by asteroids and comets.
Synopsis: China is offering a salary of about $1.2 million annually to run the biggest radio telescope in the world, located in a remote area of southern China. The telescope, called the Five hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST), is almost twice the size of the nearest comparable facility in the world: the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico, which is operated by the U.S.
Synopsis: Because the temperatures in Spain have been so hot, we have taken to sitting out on the roof terrace in the late evening to enjoy the coolness and look at the night sky; on Monday we were looking out at the bright full moon which was in the southern aspect of the sky–the lower horizon was fairly misty in the valleys coming up from the coast, so the moon was beautiful; because it was so bright, I was curious as to how many stars we would see when, looking up towards the northeast, my eye caught a bright flash of what could have been a star just uncovered by a cloud, then covered again–however, there was not a cloud in the sky.
Synopsis: I was on holiday in S’illot , Majorca and it was about 9:15 p.m. when I decided to go out on to our balcony to watch the sunset, so I went out and at about 9:20 p.m. I noticed a bright red light to the southeast and I lifted my head up to look at it properly–and 1-2 seconds later it vanished; so at first I thought “Oh, it’s a plane” when I first saw it–but when it vanished…?
