Fireballs – American Meteor Society

This exceptionally bright fireball trail was photographed with a fish-eye camera at a Czech Republic station of the European Fireball Network on January 21, 1999. Monitored by three stations of this network, the luminous trail is measured to begin at an altitude of 81.9 kilometers and covered 71.1 kilometers in 6.7 seconds. It is thought likely that a small (a few hundred grams) meteorite survived this fiery fall to Earth and landed near the Czech-Poland border. Picture courtesy of P. Spurny , (Astronomical Institute, Ondrejov Observatory).

A fireball is another term for a very bright meteor, generally brighter than magnitude -4, which is about the same magnitude of the planet Venus as seen in the morning or evening sky. A bolide is a special type of fireball which explodes in a bright terminal flash at its end, often with visible fragmentation.

If you happen to see one of these memorable events, we would ask that you report it here to the American Meteor Society, remembering as many details as possible. This will include things such as brightness, length across the sky, color, and duration (how long did it last), it is most helpful of the observer will mentally note the beginning and end points of the fireball with regard to background star constellations, or compass direction and angular elevation above the horizon.

How Latinos are transforming American politics

With America’s Latino electorate projected to potentially double by 2030, Democratic and Republican strategists alike are grappling with what America’s changing demographics mean for their party’s future. 

In the last year, congressional Republican leaders flirted with passing immigration reform to improve their standing with Latinos only to back away after meeting fierce resistance from their base. On the other side, Democrats are still struggling with how far they’re willing to go to on the issue. President Obama recently outraged Latino groups by delaying a promised overhaul of deportation procedures amid complaints from Democrats in conservative states that dramatic action could drag down their campaigns.

Few people have studied this phenomenon as closely as political scientist Matt Barreto, who co-founded the influential polling firm Latino Decisions with fellow academic Gary Segura. In a new book, ”Latino America: How America’s Most Dynamic Population is Poised to Transform the Politics of the Nation,”

An American Body Politic – Image Journal

In recent months several of us have quipped that the drama surrounding the Trump campaign and presidency would make for a great plotline on the FX drama, The Americans. A show about Russian spies living in D.C. during the Cold War easily brings to mind our present-day episode of America-Russia relations.

If you watched the most recent season, you might have found your imagination wandering from the fictional Jennings family to America’s stranger-than-fiction reality. You might have had odd thoughts, like: I wonder if that’s really Rob Goldstone’s hair? And then: Tabloid journalist? Or Russian spy completing the Hail Mary of espionage assignments?

Who can know anymore?

Joe Weisberg says his show is less about international relations and more about a marriage. I suspect this is only partly true. Watching Season 5, I realized that The Americans intimates something fundamental to national identities through its particular marital scope: Crucial

This vegan and vegan sweetie went to society burgers for a pregame snack. We both ordered the impossible Burgers vegan style and a side salad with balsamic vinaigrette. And of course two beers.

The side salads were nicely green with croutons in a tangy balsamic vinaigrette. The burgers came out with double patties, vegan cheese, vegan mayonnaise, onions, lettuce, and tomatoes.

Brooke took great care of us with her attentive service.

This is the best impossible Burger in Tulsa.
