Fog Bank, Nov. 4, 2013

First up,
From KOPN in Columbia, MO, a blog post and reference to research at NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research) that may enable longer-term forecasting of US heatwave
The NCAR release

The Astronomy Picture of the Day, for Halloween, had a great aurora photo

A photo taken in NYC of the partial solar eclipse, Sun. Nov. 3

My fourth pick comes from the
Capital Weather Gang with a compilation of photos of the solar eclipse

I'll close out with a very pretty double rainbow picture, but after getting snared by the lightning struck sand photo, I'm not going to call it real.
Is this double rainbow picture real?
