City of (Sunspot) Lights
Sunspot AR1476 (photographed above over the Eiffel Tower) has been monitored all week, as the Jupiter-sized coronal “active region” has been pointed squarely at Earth, ready to release a wave of magnetic energy in the form of a solar flare or coronal mass ejection. Last night, a CME was detected, racing toward Earth at over 1,000 km/s.
This awesome animation from the Goddard Space Weather Lab demonstrates the forecasted wave and glancing blow we await on Earth (we aren’t in any danger, but satellites may be disrupted):

Above, the sunspot is photographed Thursday evening over the Eiffel Tower by VegaStar Carpentier.

The Chernobyl nuclear disaster occurred on April 26, 1986. I’ll probably post or reblog some more about it later, but to start with, here are some animals. Wikipedia says:

The Exclusion Zone around the Chernobyl nuclear power station is reportedly a haven for wildlife. As humans were evacuated from the area 25 years ago, existing animal populations multiplied and rare species not seen for centuries have returned or have been reintroduced, for example lynxwild boarwolfEurasian brown bearEuropean bisonPrzewalski’s horse, and eagle owl. Birds even nest inside the cracked concrete sarcophagus shielding in the shattered remains of Reactor 4. The Exclusion Zone is so lush with wildlife and greenery that in 2007 the Ukrainian government designated it a wildlife sanctuary, and at 488.7 km2 it is one of the largest wildlife sanctuaries in Europe.

The city that never sleeps in beds.

So true.
This blog is great, and you should follow it. It simultaneously makes me miss New York and quells my something-like-homesickness for it by bringing the best part of it to me.
