"This sequence was from an incredible morning in Bandhavgarh NP, India on 23rd March 2000. I believe the pair of Indian Wolves had a den close by as we had seen them on the previous few days at this particular spot. When the young male tiger, B1 "Raj", appeared the wolves zig-zagged across the track behind it. One of the wolves followed it for some distance along the track provoking the tiger to turn around and face the wolf. The tiger only really had to make the simple gesture of turning around to dissuade the wolf from getting any closer."
Suddenly, we saw a line of funnel clouds straight in front of our boat! The photo shows the most recently formed waterspout in the foreground; the oldest spout, in the background, would disappear in a few seconds. Our boat actually passed through the scary funnels. The spouts were spaced about 1/3 nautical mile from each other. I asked the boat’s captain if he thought cruising past the spouts would be dangerous, but apparently, he wasn’t bothered much by their proximity.
Nevertheless, waterspouts can generate winds of over 70 mph (F0 on the enhanced Fujita Scale) and can be hazardous to boaters.”
Just the saw the International Space Station swoosh over New York at 9:27p (just as a NASA txt indicated - estimated time was 9:51p) looked like a bolide (fireball), this is the second time I see this in person but it never ceases to be awesome. Keep looking up guys :D
even if we’re shrouded in constant light pollution
Head’s Up: NASA’s Spot The Station program provides email or text updates which alert you when and where the ISS will appear overhead in your local night skies! My little guy has already spotted it, as have I. It’s quite a humbling (albeit brief) experience. Most overhead passes last around 1-5 minutes. Stay curious.
And still so much more night sky events to look forward to this portion of the seasons including tonight’s Lyrid Meteor shower.
