Fog Bank for February 20, 2012

Hello, WeatherBrains listeners, welcome to the Fog Bank, keeping Weatherbrains fog horn free for JB.
Follow me on Twitter, @skydaver.  My Google+ profile should be over on the right.

Christopher Waits, @lostweatherguy, sent me the link to
NOAA Central Library US Daily Weather Maps Project

The February 16 Earth Science picture of the day has a great picture and explanation of the science behind a split sunset

Space had an interesting picture of the Feb. 14-15 Aurora, from a US Dept. of Defense Meteorological Program satellite has an article on a great Aurora display that wasn't expected

From the USGS Water Science for Schools page, an article on raindrop shape.  While falling, the shape depends upon the size.  I can tell you from personal experience though, that when you're skydiving, and falling at 120mph, and you fall through raindrops, they FEEL like they have a pointy end, and they hurt!

Thanks for listening, Skydaver out!

Here's another great picture of the Aurora, this one from Sweden
