Daily discussion of various images from an Electric Universe perspective.

Solar Plasmoids

  May 26, 2016 Ionized particles from the Sun constitute the solar wind. In an electric Universe, plasma discharges are a better model for solar activity than the consensus community likes to accept. Experiments using a positively charged sphere show … Continue reading

Electric Clouds

  Originally published Dec 17, 2007 Cloud formations often exhibit structure that could be the result of something other than blowing winds. Does ionized plasma actually shape the clouds? The Picture of the Day will be on a short hiatus, … Continue reading

Nix

  May 24, 2016 Pluto’s potato-shaped moon. The New Horizons space probe flew by the dwarf planet Pluto on July 14, 2015. Its images of Pluto and Charon, along with infrared and spectral analyses, will provide planetary scientists with enough … Continue reading

A Fox in the Henhouse

  May 23, 2016 Electromagnetism rules the Universe. Birkeland currents transport electric charges through space along twisting electromagnetic filaments that can span intergalactic distances. They are seen at all cosmic scales because almost every celestial object in the Universe is … Continue reading

Electromagnetic Belts

  May 20, 2016 Bands of plasma circle the Earth. Earth’s ionosphere is connected to the Sun by filaments of electric charge, so upper regions of the atmosphere are influenced by solar emissions. This idea is a basic tenet of … Continue reading

Variability

  May 19, 2016 Stars are not constant. Attempts to locate planetary bodies in orbit around distant stars suffer from the “glare problem”: starlight tends to obscure direct observation of dim companions. A little over 18 years ago, astronomer Geoff Marcy … Continue reading

Hydra

  May 18, 2016 Another asymmetrical moon of Pluto. NASA launched the New Horizons mission on January 19, 2006. Nine years later, the spacecraft flew by the dwarf planet Pluto on July 14, 2015. Infrared and spectral analyses should provide … Continue reading

Luminous Charge

  May 17, 2016 Electric stars in an electric Universe. The Nebular Hypothesis is considered the sine qua non of consensus star-forming theory. When a star condenses out of primordial material, it is thought that the remaining clumps of dust … Continue reading

Journey to the Centre of the Earth

  May 16, 2016 Diamonds aren’t forever? Earthquakes and Volcanoes routinely emit flashing, transparent and colourful plasmoids emerging like giant bubbles out of the ground! These chaotic electromagnetic formations come in many shapes and colours and can travel at supersonic … Continue reading

Star Magnets Part Two

  May 13, 2016 Magnetic fields in stars are not rare, study finds. According to a recent press release, astronomers from the University of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia “…discovered strong magnetic fields are common in stars, not rare as … Continue reading
