Miscellanea May 23, 2007Posted by dorigo in astronomy, Blogroll, internet, news, physics, science.
Just a few miscellaneous links of things I found interesting in a way or another:
- The Sky and Telescope site has the best movie I ever saw showing the surface of Jupiter during a full rotation period. And it was taken by an amateur (one of exceptional capabilities, to be sure), Damian Peach.
- For the most exquisite Saturn images please visit the Cassini Ciclops site .
- A large archive of pictures of the big 1966 flood of Venice and its lagoon has been made available some time ago here .
- In this german site you can create a custom, up-to-date animation of the weather over Europe.
- Asymptotia and Backreaction are reacting with asymptotical backreactions.
- Non trivial pentagonal tilings, courtesy Kea.
- Jennifer Ouellette tells us that it is possible that William Herschel discovered the Uranus rings two centuries before they were scientifically accepted.
