Daily discussion of various images from an Electric Universe perspective.

A Place in the Stars

  Apr 24, 2015 What takes place on Earth most likely reflects large-scale phenomena. In celebration of the Hubble Space Telescope’s twenty-fifth anniversary, the European Space Agency (ESA) released the image at the top of the page. The star cluster … Continue reading

Not So Far

  Apr 23, 2015 If redshift equals distance calculations are incorrect, the Universe could be a much different looking place. “Of course, if one ignores contradictory observations, one can claim to have an ‘elegant’ or ‘robust’ theory. But it isn’t science.” … Continue reading

What are Stars?

  Apr 22, 2015 Stars are not merely gravitationally compressed hot gas. What are the stars? The question might seem self-evident, since children are taught from an early age that they are intensely bright, burning balls of hydrogen gas. A … Continue reading

The Heart of the Matter

  Apr 21, 2015 Nebulae exhibit electrical characteristics. Previous Picture of the Day articles contend for an electrical interpretation of astrophysical observations. Every science journal describes nebulae like IC 1805 in terms of gases and “blowing” dust, along with “winds” created … Continue reading

Dark Detection

  Apr 20, 2015 Electric Universe theory fits observations better than dark matter theory. In previous Picture of the Day articles about the existence of “dark matter”, it was noted that it is primarily an ad-hoc theory, created so that … Continue reading

Transverse Electric Discharges

  Apr 17, 2015 From galaxies to the laboratory, transverse electric charge flow accompanies a main discharge channel. On Earth, the main discharge channel is experienced as a terrestrial lighting bolt. Slow-motion studies reveal that each flash is a complex … Continue reading

Rocking Rock

  Apr 16, 2015 Saturn’s moon Mimas exhibits a significant libration. In past Picture of the Day articles, several moons in the Solar System were analyzed in terms of their electrical connection with their parent bodies. In particular, the discovery that … Continue reading

Plasma Contortions

  Apr 15, 2015 Rather than black holes, electricity should be considered. Electric Universe advocates propose that electric currents in plasma generate magnetic fields that constrict the current flow. As previous Picture of the Day articles point out, the constricted … Continue reading

La Grasa Oscura

  Apr 14, 2015 The largest galaxy cluster is said to contain a majority of dark matter. “One can show the following: given any rule, however ‘fundamental’ or ‘necessary’ for science, there are always circumstances when it is advisable not only … Continue reading

Tempestuous Ariel

  Apr 13, 2015 Another moon with unmistakable signs of electric discharge impacts. The moon Ariel is pockmarked with craters ranging from five to ten kilometers across—almost undetectable in the image above—however, a few craters measuring 20-30 kilometers across are … Continue reading
