  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Moon's shadow causes winds to slow, alter direction, study says.

The inky shadows of solar eclipses can alter local weather on small scales, according to new analysis of a 1999 total eclipse.

Solar eclipses occur when the moon slips between Earth and the sun, causing a huge shadow to glide across our planet's surface.(See pictures from a January 2011 solar eclipse.)

Meteorologists knew an eclipse could lower temperatures within this shadow by as much as 5 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius). But they couldn't confirm anecdotal reports of changes in wind speed and direction linked to the astronomical events.

  • Our universe was created out of a desire. A desire to experiment, interact and evolve within a multitude of planes of consciousness.

I've read somewhere that the decay of radiative forcing during a solar eclispe happens 4 to 5 times fasted than during a sunset.

In 1999, Europe scientists have monitered changes in a specific area, around France and Belgium. Temperature dropped by about 3C in 20 roughly minutes and winds lost about 1.5 m/s of velocity during the solar eclipse.

Still not nearly as bad as a huge volcanic eruption but quite interesting indeed.

Bartender says: "Sorry, we don't serve faster-than-light neutrinos here."

So you have these two faster-than-light neutrinos walking into a bar...
