What Is A “Planet?”

The official astronomical definition of a “planet” changed in 2006. When it did, the planet we all knew as Pluto lost its classification! So what is the definition of a planet? It hinges on three criteria, the last of which caught Pluto on the short end of the stick. Let’s expand on this topic as well as an interesting target in our post-sunset March sky, and some stunning photos from the surface of Jupiter!

And I’ll share more about this on Open Line Friday, but Scott Baio’s wife Renée just finished installing a “Community Library” in their neighborhood… and it started getting used immediately!

It’s MARCH!

Be encouraged! While March can be a fickle month, it will invariably bring increasing hints of warmer days. Let’s review February and see if we can detect any patterns setting up for the merry month of March.

The Weather On Mars

What is the weather like on Mars? What are the similarities and differences between earth and Mars? With the recent successful landing of the NASA Martian rover, Perseverance, many people have asked these questions and more. Let’s explore as well as listen to NASA’s Mission Control audio as Perseverance made it’s landing attempt. The actual HD video of the landing from the probe’s cameras can be watched on my show notes at WeatherJazz.com, Episode #157.

Praiseworthy

God sure is creative! This was the scene just outside the doors of the Fairbanks, Alaska National Weather Service on Monday morning. The sun has been active and I’ve heard from our friends in Iceland that their nighttime skies have been very colorful, too.

In the meantime, the new Mars rover has been beaming back some amazing HD photos. Click on the image to see a bigger, more detailed photo on your screen.

But perhaps what you haven’t seen would be ACTUAL video from the spacecraft’s landing, which was sent to Earth after the landing, and married to the realtime audio from NASA. Take a look!

The Big Recede

One week ago, we set a USA snowpack record (Lower 48 States) at 73.2%… today, that snowpack has receded to 36% thanks to a quick warmup in the Southern Plains.

BIG Cracks!

Check out the big cracks in the ice as seen from the MODIS low-orbiting satellite on Sunday morning. This image should frighten anyone into NEVER venturing on the ice! There’s a saying around here which rings true: NO ice is safe ice.

In the meantime, watch this infrared loop showing Sicily’s Mt. Etna erupting for a few hours before sunrise on Sunday morning.

Tubby, The Iowa Supercat

It’s Open Line Friday! I have a listener question about the conditions that precede the development of windshield frost on vehicles in the morning. I’ll also continue my conversation with meteorologist Jeff Kennedy, formerly from KWWL-7, Waterloo, Iowa, about his cat Tubby (photo below) along with Jeff’s fascinating faith journey that parallel’s mine in so many ways. (If you ever have any questions about the Good News that God has made available to us, feel free to email me anytime at weatherjazz@yahoo.com).

Jeff’s cat Tubby.
