Fog Bank, September 15, 2014

Hello, WeatherBrains listeners, this is David Phillips, skydaver on Twitter, returning with the Fog Bank.

My vacation wasn't really a month long. We left the day before one WeatherBrains, were gone for the next one, and returned the day after the third one.  I was still catching up, and wasn't able to put one together for last week.

Lets get to it.

ESPOD again, with a shelf cloud photo

SpaceWeather.com for Sept. 12 had a couple of nice Aurora photos, along with a great photo of the ISS transiting the sun, next to a fairly large sunspot. Unfortunately, their site crashed the same day, and they don't have an archive for Sept. 12. (as of Sept. 23, they still don't have an archive page for the 12th.

Not weather, but I find this amazing. A photograph from the Rosetta spacecraft, which flew for ten years to rendezvous with Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The spacecraft is now in the vicinity of the comet, and is sending back photographs. Astronomy Picture of the Day has one of those.

ESPOD is one of my go to sites when I need to fill out my five picks. Here's a nice picture of a solar dog

SpaceWeather.com has a nice video of a recent Aurora

Thanks for listening, Skydaver out.
