In 1905, Albert Einstein published the theory of special relativity, which explains how to interpret motion between different inertial frames of reference — that is, places that are moving at constant speeds relative to each other.
Einstein explained that when two objects are moving at a constant speed as the relative motion between the two objects, instead of appealing to the ether as an absolute frame of reference that defined what was going on. If you and some astronaut, Amber, are moving in different spaceships and want to compare your observations, all that matters is how fast you and Amber are moving with respect to each other

El Niño Alert, The Wrath of God is Developing - Get Ready - NASA Alert
stargazernation

El Niño is a band of anomalously warm ocean water temperatures that periodically develops off the Pacific coast of South America. Extreme climate change pattern oscillations fluctuate weather across the Pacific Ocean which results in fluctuating droughts, floods, and crop yields in varying regions of the world.
There is a phase of 'El Niño--Southern Oscillation' (ENSO), which refers to variations in the temperature of the surface of the tropical eastern Pacific Ocean (El Niño and La Niña) and in air surface pressure in the tropical western Pacific. The two variations are coupled: the warm oceanic phase, El Niño, accompanies high air surface pressure in the western Pacific, while the cold phase, La Niña, accompanies low air surface pressure in the western Pacific. Mechanisms that cause the oscillation remain under study.
Developing countries dependent upon agriculture and fishing, particularly those bordering the Pacific Ocean, are the most affected. El niño is Spanish for "the boy", and the capitalized term El Niño refers to the Christ child, Jesus, because periodic warming in the Pacific near South America is usually noticed around Christmas.
Most tropical cyclones form on the side of the subtropical ridge closer to the equator, then move poleward past the ridge axis before recurving into the main belt of the Westerlies. When the subtropical ridge position shifts due to El Niño, so will the preferred tropical cyclone tracks. Areas west of Japan and Korea tend to experience much fewer September--November tropical cyclone impacts during El Niño and neutral years. During El Niño years, the break in the subtropical ridge tends to lie near 130°E, which would favor the Japanese archipelago. During El Niño years, Guam's chance of a tropical cyclone impact is one-third of the long-term average. The tropical Atlantic ocean experiences depressed activity due to increased vertical wind shear across the region during El Niño years. On the flip side, however, the tropical Pacific Ocean east of the dateline has above-normal activity during El Niño years due to water temperatures well above average and decreased windshear. Most of the recorded East Pacific category 5 hurricanes occur during El Niño years in clusters.el nino

U.F.O Incident Sparks A wave of Hundreds of Emergency Calls - Lake Michi...

Meteor image - stunning, blazing
Really interesting case from Holland, Michigan where 'panicked' citizens flooded 911 operators with UFO reports from around Lake Michigan and police officers who were dispatched to investigate also witnessed the objects - the case also made international news due to the National Weather Service Radar Station picking up very strange radar returns in the same area (and at the same time) as the UFOs were being witnessed.
residents of Southwest Michigan began seeing strange things in the skies over Lake Michigan to the south of Holland. Blue, white, red, and green lights, sometimes attached to cylindrical objects, and sometimes performing unusual maneuvers, were reported.
911 operators began receiving calls at around 9:30 p.m. about something that looked like "a string of Christmas lights way up in the sky." It wasn't just a few people reporting these things; it was counties all up and down Lake Michigan. Some sources said 300 witnesses, including several police officers, saw the lights.

SDO - Tight Loops Super Zoomed -3D
stargazernation

We zoomed in almost to our maximum level to watch tight, bright loops and much longer, softer loops shift and sway above an active region, while a darker blob of plasma in their midst was pulled about every which way (May 13-14, 2014). The video clip covers just over a day beginning at 14:19 UT on the 13th. The frames were taken in the 171 Angstroms wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light, but colorized red, instead of its usual bronze tone. This type of dynamic activity continues almost non-stop on the Sun as opposing magnetic forces tangle with each other. Credit: Solar Dynamics Observatory/NASA.

Global Alert Irreversible Decline of Antarctic Glaciers World Wide Alert
stargazernation
A massive glacier system has started collapsing in West Antarctica due to global warming, and studies by two different teams of scientists claim the collapse will result in a significant rise in sea levels worldwide.
A slow-motion disaster may be unfolding according to two different teams of scientists. The scientists reported earlier this week that the Thwaites Glacier, which acts as a keystone holding back the massive West Antarctic Ice Sheet is starting to collapse. According to the reports, the entire ice sheet is doomed to collapse, raising sea levels worldwide by as much as four feet or more.
In an article published online today in Science, one team combined recent data on the receding 182,000-square-kilometer Thwaites Glacier with computer modeling of the glacier’s dynamics to forecast future movement.
The rapidly melting West Antarctic Ice Sheet is in an irreversible state of decline according to the latest NASA study. As a result, the ‘ice-dam’ preventing glaciers in the area melting into the sea will ultimately disappear.ice caps melting
