Bateaux Cellars declared: Witches at the Winery was a wickedly fun time on Sunday. Couldn’t throw a black cat without hitting someone in a pointy hat! Can’t wait until next year.
National Weather Service Portland Oregon reported: Tornado touches down near Scio, Oregon where, coincidentally, Weather Spotter Training was scheduled the same day.
Washington State Department of Health posted: Public Health Seattle-King County
A Seattle resident has tested positive for West Nile virus, making this the first locally acquired case of West Nile virus reported in King County…
What Public Health is doing...
At one time, Public Health–Seattle & King County conducted active surveillance for West Nile virus in both birds and mosquitoes. Detection in these species was intended to provide an early warning of the risk of human cases. Due to budget cuts, surveillance for the virus in mosquitoes was ended in King County in 2009, and dead bird surveillance was ended statewide in 2016.
Toledo’s Ethan Siegel posted Monday:
“With a huge suite of different observatories for viewing the Universe, innumerable details can be revealed. Occasionally, what we find evokes terrifying feelings within us. In the spirit of Halloween, here are the top 10 scariest sights the Universe has to offer.”
From ‘Terminator Tinkerbell,’ which is merely three colliding galaxies in an unusual configuration, to the ‘Ghost Nebula,’ which looks like a group of demons emerging from a wispy space cloud, the Universe is full of sights that remind us of the occult. Skulls, eyeballs, gargoyles, and even a ghostly hand make an appearance if we know where to look. As Halloween approaches, check out these 10 scary sights that the Universe delivers to us naturally, depending on which wavelength we look in.
From galaxy clusters down to mere space rocks in our own Solar System, enjoy this astronomical treat for Halloween!
