3D Photos of the Sun to be released on April 23rd

Quote

"3D SUNOn Monday, April 23rd, NASA will release for the first time 3-dimensional photos of the sun taken by a pair of spacecraft named STEREO. Magnetic loops, prominences and plumes will practically leap out of your computer screen.  These images will be displayed on big screens at many museums and science centers around the USA and posted on the internet. You can get ready this weekend by buying or building some 3D glasses.  Visit http://spaceweather.com for instructions–and stay tuned for Monday!

WEEKEND METEORS:  Earth is entering the dusty tail of Comet Thatcher, and this will cause a mild meteor shower this weekend.  It’s called the Lyrid meteor shower because the bits of incandescent comet dust appear to come from the constellation Lyra. The best time to look is during the dark hours before dawn on Sunday, April 22nd, and Monday, April 23rd, when you can expect to see a shooting star overhead every 5 minutes or so."

  1. Impressive… but I wonder if the meteor shower will be visible from where I am?  

  2. Yup the meteor shower will be visible in Oman too. But not in the city.  you need  to go to  dark area away from the city to be able to  view it clearly.
