In a follow up to Monday's post, I thought I would toss out a couple of other items of interest as it relates to the easing of the cold, stormy, snowy weather pattern we've been stuck with for a long, long time. Two main things jumped off the page to me this morning in terms of the big picture, and while they won't necessarily mean we flip a switch and go to summer, they do portend a much warmer pattern overall.
The first of these is the slow but very noticeable retreat of the jet stream. Look at how it appears across the country this morning:

April 24, 2013 – AFGHANISTAN - A moderate earthquake hit Afghanistan Wednesday and its tremors were felt in Kabul, Islamabad and as far away as New Delhi. The U.S. Geological Survey said the 5.6-magnitude earthquake was 65 kilometers deep and struck 25 kilometers northwest of Jalalabad, the main town in eastern Afghanistan which is close to the Pakistani border. Pakistan’s meteorological office put the magnitude at 6.2. Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, a provincial government spokesman, tells VOA that six people have died and 64 others were injured in the quake and that a large number of structures in Nangahar province have been damaged. Some buildings reportedly swayed in New Delhi, causing a mild panic. Last week a powerful 7.6-magnitude earthquake killed 41 people in the Baluchistan region of Pakistan, and just a few days later a 6.6-magnitude earthquake killed about 600 people in southeastern China. –VOA NEWS

Anzac Day will be wet and windy in western Tasmania while the east will see patchy rain developing in the afternoon and evening. A cold front is arriving today bringing gale force winds and heavy showers to the western coast and ranges. Strahan has had a drier than usual April thus far with only 59% of its average rainfall of 117mm. Strahan will join most of the west coast and ranges in gaining 15-30mm today.
Northwesterly winds are increasing this morning up to gale force, before the cold front reaches the west in the middle of the day, bringing a strong westerly change. As the front moves across the state it will bring patchy rain into the east during the afternoon and evening, putting a dampener on the holiday.

Complete beginner to astronomy? Want to learn the stars and constellations? Or wish you just knew how to get around the night sky? You have come to the right place. These "Stargazing Basics" videos by Eyes on the Sky take the budding amateur astronomer through all the basics of stargazing, quickly and easily.
These videos follow a proven formula I have developed over the past few years, and teach regularly at informal education presentations about astronomy, with excellent beginner results. You will learn where the important locations in the sky are, how to understand the differences in the brightness of stars and planets, and finally, how to get a better sense of measuring from objects you can identify to ones you wish to find.

For the past few days, Earth has been passing through a stream of debris from ancient Comet Thatcher, source of the annual Lyrid meteor shower. According to international observers, the encounter produced as many as 25 meteors per hour. Some of these were fireballs. NASA's All Sky Fireball Network detected more than 30 Lyrids as bright as Venus on the nights around the shower's April 22nd peak. Here are their orbits:

April 24, 2013 – PAPUA, NG – The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center says there is no tsunami threat for Hawaii after a strong earthquake near Papua New Guinea. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the 6.5-magnitude quake struck at 1:21 p.m. (HST) just 19 miles north of the city, Rabaul. The PTWC says based on all available data, a destructive Pacific-wide tsunami is not expected and there is no tsunami threat to Hawaii. –Khon2

The Earth's climate warmed more during the 30-year period between 1971-2000 than any other three-decade period in the last 1,400 years, according to a new international study
The regional study, which was published in the journal Nature Geoscience by 80 international scientists, looked at historical records and data taken from tree rings, pollen, cave formations, ice cores and ocean/lake sediments from the seven continents.
The study also showed that the MedievalWarm Period that took place between 950 and 1250 AD may not have been global as other research has also indicated.

In the last 365 days, however, there have been twice as many record highs as lows, a ratio that is similar to the last ten years.
The snow records have not just been broken, they've been shattered, and we're not just talking about daily records here; 170 stations have never recorded this much snow in April, and 23 stations had never seen this much snow in a day, ever! our news story on the topic says:

In the delta community of Miguel Alemán, situated along the Colorado River corridor that forms the border between Mexico and Arizona, we arrive at an unlikely enterprise in this parched environment: a tree nursery.

With an estimated seven billion people and counting, the world's population will only get hungrier. The advent of fertilizers and high-yield crops have helped growers keep pace with the demand for food.
But there's an unintended crop flourishing around the world that is not always so beneficial. Microscopic, plantlike organisms called algae thrive on the excess nutrients—like nitrogen and phosphorus—found in fertilizers that make their way from backyards and fields, producing blooms that can sometimes be seen from space.

Thunderstorms fired up in central QLD on Tuesday, bringing gusty winds and the heaviest rain in months to some towns. During Tuesday afternoon, storms sparked up along a low pressure trough, with lightning as far north as Hughenden and south to about Maryborough. Between the hours of 4pm and 10pm, more than 20,000 cloud-to-ground lightning strikes were recorded within 400km of Gladstone.
The storms flared up in the Rolleston and Taroom areas around 2pm, reaching Emerald by about 4pm where they dumped 15mm, with nearly 10mm falling in just ten minutes. Lochington also had 10mm in ten minutes, with a total of 14mm, while winds gusted to 83km/h.

Eyes on the Sky- 4/22/13
There are few sights in the night sky that cause people to audibly gasp at the eyepiece of a telescope; craters on the Moon, Albireo, and a few others are up there on the list. But almost without fail, the one object that tops that list?
With its majestic rings floating silently against a velvety black (or even slightly orange from light pollution) background, this planet evokes the wonder and awe inside many observers minds unlike other planets can. At opposition this coming weekend, the planet will become a mainstay of evening observing from now through the end of summer. Look for Titan, the Cassini division, and the subtle shading of the cloud tops - all covered in this video, along with observing tips on how to see this best-of-the-planets solar system object.
