Two bright fireballs over southern England, UK
Two bright fireballs were observed streaking through the night sky over southern England, the United Kingdom over the past 24 hours. The first at 23:59 UTC on Friday, November 24 and the second at 07:12 UTC on Saturday, November 25, 2017. The sound was associated with both events.
The American Meteor Society (AMS) received 81 reports by 17:25 UTC about the first fireball (00:06 UTC). The event lasted between 3 and 7 seconds and was witnessed from England and Wales, UK and Normandie, France. 7 people heard delayed sound and 3 concurrent. 20 witnesses reported fragmentation.

86 reports were submitted for the second fireball, observed at 07:12 UTC on November 25. This event was seen in England and Wales, UK and Bretagne, Normandie and Pays de la Loire, France.
3 witnesses heard delayed and 1 concurrent sound associated with the event. 44 people witnessed fragmentation.

Satellite observations show sea levels rising, and climate change is accelerating it
Sea level rise is happening now, and the rate at which it is rising is increasing every year, according to a study released Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Researchers, led by University of Colorado-Boulder professor of aerospace engineering sciences Steve Nerem, used satellite data dating to 1993 to observe the levels of the world's oceans.
Changes in sea level observed between 1992 and 2014. Orange/red colors represent higher sea levels, while blue colors show where sea levels are lower.
Using satellite data rather than tide-gauge data that is normally used to measure sea levels allows for more precise estimates of global sea level since it provides measurements of the open ocean.
The team observed a total rise in the ocean of 7 centimeters (2.8 inches) in 25 years of data, which aligns with the generally accepted current rate of sea level rise of about 3 millimete…
Ozone Hole appears over Western Canada
Satellite observations acquired on February 12 and 13 data assimilation confirmed predictions made by ECMWF's CAMS, proving its model really works and can accurately predict these kinds of events.
Below is a comparison of the model prediction based 00:00 UTC, February 9 and valid on 03:00 UTC, February 13, of the very short range (3 hour) forecast from the model analysis relying on several satellite observations from February 12 and valid for February 13, 03:00 UTC and of measurements from the OMI satellite instrument on February 13.
Ozone mini-holes at high northern latitudes are relatively rare as the topography of the continents surrounding the Arctic generally disrupts the polar vortex and prevents the formation of polar stratospheric clouds involved in the chemical reactions that produce chlorine atoms, which are responsible for fast ozone depletion in the mini-holes.
According to Copernicus, their forecast shows that this mini ozone ho…
Earth's Magnetic Flip and what it means for Human Civilization Earth's magnetic field has flipped many times throughout history and is now on its way toward another reversal. While the topic was highly controversial in the 20th century, numerous studies over the past decades have proven this as a fact, that it's happening now and even suggested it can flip very quickly, within a human lifetime.
How far are we from the actual flip is hard to tell but there are signs that suggest we are well on its way and speeding toward it. It's also hard to say what exactly this means for human life on Earth simply because there is no one alive today who lived through the last one. However, as we move forward toward the next flip, more and more things are becoming painfully obvious - like the weather.
New evidence indicates that the intensity of Earth's magnetic field is decreasing 10 times faster than normal, leading some to believe it could happen in a not that distant future. We…
