Bubble Layers

Apr 21, 2017 Spherical shells around stars are signs of electrical activity. More than 70 years ago Dr. Charles Bruce noted that planetary nebulae are similar to electric discharges. He reasoned that their shapes were hourglasses, with central stars obscured by dusty toroids. Since nebular shapes are similar to the ...

A Box of Plasma Rain

April 20, 2017 "Walk into splintered sunlight..." NASA launched the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) on June 28, 2013. Its primary mission includes a study of the solar corona: why is it far hotter than the Sun's surface, or photosphere? Heliophysicists see formations that resemble "mini-tornadoes" in the Sun's chromosphere ...

A Bridge of Sighs

Apr 19, 2017 More dark matter machinations. In a previous Picture of the Day article about dark matter, it was argued that it is an ad-hoc theory, created so that the current gravitational models of the Universe can be preserved, primarily the Big Bang. here is a problem underlying the ...

A Star of the Eighth Magnitude

April 18, 2017 Mysterious Neptune. Sir,—The Planet [Neptune] whose position you marked out actually exists. On the day on which your letter reached me, I found a star of the eighth magnitude, which was not recorded in the excellent map designed by Dr. Bremiker, containing the twenty-first hour of the ...

Electric Vortex

Apr 17, 2017 Instead of tectonic activity, Venus shows signs of electric discharges. The planet Venus shows signs of a somewhat recent catastrophe: giant cracks extend for hundreds of kilometers; formations called “coronae” are accompanied by massive fracture zones, branching out like carved lightning bolts; and vast caldera with upraised ...

Rapid Rise

Apr 14, 2017 Stars form at a faster rate in a starburst galaxy. Astronomers using the Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) recently announced that a distant galaxy is creating stars at an anomalous rate. So-called "starburst galaxies" contain regions where stars form at "a breakneck rate", so fast that ...

Where Have All the Craters Gone?

April 13, 2017 Long time passing.... The Dawn mission was launched on September 27, 2007. It first entered orbit around the asteroid Vesta on July 17, 2011, departing on September 5, 2012 toward Ceres. Dawn arrived at Ceres on Friday, March 6, 2015. According to a recent press release, mission ...

Electric Lights

Apr 12, 2017 Bright aurorae are found throughout the Solar System. Just as the system of the sun, planets and comets is put in motion by the forces of gravity, and its parts persist in their motions, so the smaller systems of bodies also seem to be set in motion ...

A Sulfur Reek

Apr 11, 2017 Mars stinks. "The devil, he's about this big. He had a red suit on and a widow's peak, and then a pointed tail, and like a sulfur reek. Yes, it was him alright, I swear." --- Frank Zappa If it were possible to stand on Mars unencumbered ...

Mapping the Unfamiliar

Apr 10, 2017 Enigmatic galactic structures. NGC 4258 is called "the weirdo galaxy" in a recent press release. Two arms of its spiral structure are not in the plane of rotation; instead, they rise from the galaxy's core. The additional arms exist within the path of energetic particles ejected from ...

A Torrent of Presumptions

Apr 7, 2017 Did water inundate Mars? "There is a tide in the affairs of men, which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. We must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.” ---William Shakespeare Planetary scientists believe that deep canyons, ripples, and other structures on ...

Rated X

April 6, 2017 The Milky Way's central bulge reveals more detailed structures. Plasma can be defined as any substance containing charged particles: electrically charged dust, neon lights, lightning, planetary magnetospheres, the so-called “solar wind”, stars, and even galaxies are matter in the plasma state. It is important to realize that ...

Solar Probe Plus

Apr 5, 2017 A new mission to study the Sun from close up. As Electronic Sun theory reveals, the Sun is powered externally by Birkeland current filaments that supply it with variable electric charge. Sunspots, flares, coronal heating, and coronal mass ejections are due to changes in the Sun’s galactic ...

Deep into that Darkness Peering

Deep into that Darkness Peering

April 4, 2017 Dark matter detection failed again. It was once thought that burned-out stars or large planets exert "dark" forces on galactic structures. Those invisible influences were called MAssive Compact Halo Objects (MACHOs). However, years of investigation found nothing. This led researchers to acknowledge that MACHOs are not dark ...

Keyhole Epistemology

Apr 3, 2017 We peer at the universe through keyholes. We sense half a dozen colors, variations of rough and smooth, flavors that are sometimes familiar, a few octaves of pressure oscillations in air. What are we missing? The colors of microwaves and x-rays, the sounds of electric currents, the ...

Electric Clusters

Mar 31, 2017 Stars are not gravitational entities. A recent press release relates that there is something wrong with how conventional theories describe star formation. Star clusters in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) are not assembled correctly: some stars are too young. As Dr. Bi-Qing For wrote: "Our models of ...

A Sandy Sea

Mar 29, 2017 Giant dune formations are found on Titan. A previous Picture of the Day noted that there is no flowing liquid on Saturn's moon, Titan, and that the so-called “river valleys” discovered by the Cassini orbiter are probably the remains of electric discharge effects. Electric Universe advocates predicted ...

Cold Heat

Mar 27, 2017 Black holes are said to heat galactic nuclei while at the same time cooling down their radiant emissions. Over the last century, laboratory investigations established the fact that plasma is electrical in nature. The flow of electricity through plasmas form Birkeland filaments, double layers, and electric current ...

Not a Drop to Drink

Mar 24, 2017 Is there water ice on Ceres? The dwarf planet Ceres adds weight to an electrical theory of the Solar System long proposed by Electric Universe advocates. Formations on moons and planets conform to that theory far better than they do to conventional ideas. On September 27, 2007 ...

The Kingdom of Frost

Mar 23, 2017 Pluto's frigid environment continues to surprise investigators. Clyde W. Tombaugh discovered Pluto on February 18, 1930. Percival Lowell thought there ought to be another celestial body beyond Neptune because something affected their orbital calculations. A gravitational source was seen to "pull" on both Uranus and Neptune. Since ...

Spiders From Mars

Mar 22, 2017 Martian formations are similar to those found elsewhere in the Solar System, including Earth. Lichtenberg figures are discussed many times in previous Picture of the Day articles. They are forking shapes that lightning bolts make when they strike Earth or some man-made object. Their unique configuration can ...

Flux Ropes

Mar 21, 2017 Electromagnetic filaments connect Saturn with the Sun. The plasmasphere of Saturn is highly energetic, enough so that lightning up to a million times more powerful than anything on this planet was observed. Saturn emits 2.3 times more energy than it receives from the Sun. 90 megawatts of ...

Holy Moly!

Mar 20, 2017 Why do coronal holes accelerate the solar wind? Recently, the Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded a coronal hole as it moved across the Sun's photosphere, causing a storm of charged particles to blast toward Earth. Heliophysicists believe that coronal holes are regions of "open magnetic fields". The thermonuclear ...

Dark Flow

Mar 16, 2017 Is the Universe expanding? Edwin Hubble first identified what he thought was the Doppler effect in faint galaxy images. The observation is known today as "redshift". However, rather than the result of acceleration and distance, it may be that it is an intrinsic property of matter. Astronomer ...
