Forty seconds of a truly impressive thunderstorm, which passed over Minneapolis earlier this week.
I could watch this for hours. Amazing job,
Whatever — the soup is getting cold.

NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope has spotted an eruption of dust around a sun-like star, possibly the result of a smashup between large asteroids. This type of collision can eventually lead to the formation of planets."We are watching rocky planet formation happen right in front of us," said George Rieke, a University of Arizona co-author of the new study. "This is a unique chance to study this process in near real-time."

Tomorrow, I’ll start studying physics in the University of Tartu and living in a different place. My 1st year takes off with Higher Math at 8:15 am 😂
Excited, nervous and glad all at the same time. I’d say wish me luck but mostly everything is up to only myself.
edit: thank you for all your good wishes, I appreciate it! ❤
“National boundaries are not evident when we view the Earth from space.

A telescope on Earth has spotted huge storms on the planet Uranus
Astronomers using the Keck Observatory in Hawaii have recently seen a number of storms develop on the planet. The new storm is reminiscent of a feature known as the Berg (named because the storm looked like an iceberg sloughing off an ice shelf), which disappeared in 2009, but could even have dated back to NASA’s Voyager probe’s flyby of the planet in 1986.
