Sky-watchers, get set: A spectrum of lunar events will occur Sunday evening in an event that won’t happen for another 18 years.

A lunar eclipse will coincide with a supermoon on Sept. 27 at 9:07 p.m. EDT. As the moon will be in its closest proximity to Earth, it will appear up to 14 percent larger.

This supermoon, also called a harvest moon due to its occurrence falling at the beginning of the autumn season, will have an extra characteristic.

Known as a blood moon, the moon will pass behind behind the Earth into its shadow, resulting in a red tint across its surface.

saiga

By J. D. Heyes – Natural News

(NaturalNews) A critically endangered species of antelope has been driven further to the brink of extinction following a mysterious and substantial die-off of its herd over the summer.

The herd of saigas, which are native to regions of Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia, began dying during their calving period in May, reports Newser, and scientists are at a loss to figure out why.

According to reports, some 12,000 saigas died from a still-unexplained digestive issue after scientists speculated that there might have been too much greenery, reports Live Science.

However, the death rate quickly accelerated to 120,000 animals, or about half of the population in Kazakhstan, by June, including a herd of 60,000 that died off in about four days.

saigas

By The Daily Sheeple

We have seen a lot of bizarre occurrences in nature lately that have, in some cases, never fully been explained. Now we’re seeing another mass animal die-off, this time in central Kazakhstan.

Live Science:

It started in late May.

When geoecologist Steffen Zuther and his colleagues arrived in central Kazakhstan to monitor the calving of one herd of saigas, a critically endangered, steppe-dwelling antelope, veterinarians in the area had already reported dead animals on the ground.

“But since there happened to be die-offs of limited extent during the last years, at first we were not really alarmed,” Zuther, the international coordinator of the Altyn Dala Conservation Initiative, told Live Science.

But within four days, the entire herd — 60,000 saiga — had died. As veterinarians and conservationists tried to stem the die-off, they also got word of similar population crashes in other herds across Kazakhstan. By early June, the mass dying was over.

Now, the researchers have found clues as to how more than half of the country’s herd, counted at 257,000 as of 2014, died so rapidly. Bacteria clearly played a role in the saigas’ demise. But exactly how these normally harmless microbes could take such a toll is still a mystery, Zuther said.

In the case of these antelope, Zuther was quoted as saying that the rapid rate at which this many animals perished, wherein otherwise harmless bacteria was able to spread and kill so fast, is really unheard of.

Yet so far this year, there have been 629 mass animal die-off events in 85 countries.

So what do you think is really going on here?

Panorama of the Pacific Northwest

Acquired February 28, 2015

Earth Observatory

This panoramic photograph was taken by an astronaut looking north from the International Space Station. The snow-covered Cascade Range of the U.S. northwest in the foreground gives way to the Rocky Mountains and Coast Mountains in Canada, with Vancouver Island just offshore. Several active volcanoes—Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainier and Mount Hood—dot the Cascades. One of the space station’s solar arrays points into the view on the upper left.

Short-lens panoramic views often reveal environmental patterns. The cloud bands of an approaching winter storm (upper left) signal a bout of approaching rain to what is one of the wettest parts of North America. Greener, forested landscapes are evidence of the wet climate experienced by people who live near the coast and on the seaward slopes of the mountains. By contrast, the tan colors of the dry Columbia Basin (lower right) show the rain shadow effect of the Cascades in preventing rain-bearing air masses from reaching the basin. In the foreground, the Columbia River drains the basin, cuts directly through the Cascades at Columbia River Gorge, and then flows into the Pacific Ocean.

Cities typically appear as dull gray zones, but astronauts learn to detect these sometimes difficult targets. In this image, Portland, the Seattle-Tacoma metropolis, and Vancouver are all visible. Mount Rainier lies immediately southeast of Seattle about 65 kilometers (40 miles) away.

 

Astronaut photograph ISS042-E-294596 was acquired on February 28, 2015, with a Nikon D4 digital camera using a 22 millimeter lens, and is provided by the ISS Crew Earth Observations Facility and the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, Johnson Space Center. The image was taken by a member of the Expedition 43 crew. The image has been cropped and enhanced to improve contrast, and lens artifacts have been removed. The International Space Station Program supports the laboratory as part of the ISS National Lab to help astronauts take pictures of Earth that will be of the greatest value to scientists and the public, and to make those images freely available on the Internet. Additional images taken by astronauts and cosmonauts can be viewed at the NASA/JSC Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth. Caption by M.

West Coast

By L.J. Devon – Natural News

(NaturalNews) The West Coast ecosystem is in a state of dire collapse. The Southern California sea lion population is dwindling to new lows as countless hungry and emaciated pups wash ashore. There’s simply not enough food to go around for the mammals. Some believe the acidity of the waters is intensifying, not allowing certain species of fish to survive. The sudden decline in sardine biomass off the West coast is directly impacting larger animals in the food chain like the Southern California sea lions. A record number of these beautiful sea mammals have been rescued since 2013, when an unusual “mortality event” was declared. As the animals struggle to find food, some appear to be getting vicious and may now attack humans for food.

In fact, a fisherman recently had a violent altercation with a sea lion at a San Diego marina. As he was holding a large fish and posing for a picture, a sea lion jumped from the water, hopped on deck and lunged at the man and his prized catch. The sea lion effectively took the fish and pulled the man into the ocean. Authorities said the man was injured. San Diego Fire Rescue spokesman Lee Swanson reported that the violent altercation resulted in the fisherman being carried underwater for 15 breathtaking seconds. When the man was rescued, he was taken to a local hospital and treated for cuts on his arm and hand.
