Neutrino Associated with Distant Blazar Jet

Explanation: With equipment frozen deep into ice beneath Earth’s South Pole, humanity appears to have discovered a neutrino from far across the universe. If confirmed, this would mark the first clear detection of cosmologically-distant neutrinos and the dawn of an observed association between energetic neutrinos and cosmic rays created by powerful jets emanating from blazing quasars (blazars). Once the Antarctican IceCube detector measured an energetic neutrino in 2017 September, many of humanity’s premier observatories sprang into action to try to identify a counterpart in light. And they did. An erupting counterpart was pinpointed by high energy observatories including AGILE, Fermi, HAWC, H.E.S.S., INTEGRAL, NuSTAR, Swift, and VERITAS, which found that gamma-ray blazar TXS 0506+056 was in the right direction and with gamma-rays from a flare arriving nearly coincidental in time with the neutrino. Even though this and other position and time coincidences are statistically strong, astronomers will await other similar neutrino – blazar light associations to be absolutely sure. Pictured here is an artist’s drawing of a particle jet emanating from a black hole at the center of a blazar.

Rings Around the Ring Nebula

Explanation: There is much more to the familiar Ring Nebula (M57), however, than can be seen through a small telescope. The easily visible central ring is about one light-year across, but this remarkably deep exposure – a collaborative effort combining data from three different large telescopes – explores the looping filaments of glowing gas extending much farther from the nebula‘s central star. This remarkable composite image includes narrowband hydrogen image, visible light emission, and infrared light emission. Of course, in this well-studied example of a planetary nebula, the glowing material does not come from planets. Instead, the gaseous shroud represents outer layers expelled from a dying, sun-like star. The Ring Nebula is about 2,000 light-years away toward the musical constellation Lyra.

Big Sky Cat:  America has turned into a classless,  rude,  abrasive,  impolite, lawless country,  with a lack of common courtesy.   I guess it has filtered down from Obama, Clinton, Waters, Warren, Bush, and the mayors and governors that don’t follow the law.

If you were considering voting for Casey Cagle as Governor of Georgia….you may be very interested in the following short videos. They sure opened my eyes. -Sheila Tolley-

Dear Georgia Gun Owner:

Casey Cagle has gone too far, this time taking credit on the campaign trail for something he never did.

Ever since our GGO Candidate Survey Program concluded a few weeks ago, I vowed to let Brian Kemp and Cagle battle it out on the Second Amendment in the lead up to the July 24 run-off . . .

That is, unless one of the candidates said or did something dishonest related to their stance on Second Amendment issues.

Today I’ve been bombarded with texts from people saying Cagle is telling voters that he “fought for Constitutional Carry”.

In fact, he’s sending this flyer all over the state saying exactly that.

This claim by Cagle has ZERO basis in truth.

In my eight legislative session working the halls of the State Capitol in Atlanta, I can tell you that Casey Cagle has never lifted a finger for Constitutional Carry.

And when there was a chance for a vote on Constitutional Carry on the floor of the Senate in 2017, he didn’t allow to it to come up for a vote.

Here’s the video: https://www.georgiagunowners.org/2018/04/17/video-casey-cagle-blocks-constitutional-carry/

You’ve seen over the last few months how hard our members and supporters worked to get ALL candidates running for governor of Georgia on the record on Constitutional Carry and a host of other gun issues.

That’s why I had to write this email to you tonight.

Casey Cagle has never fought for Constitutional Carry.

He’s never called for, supported legislation, or allowed a vote on Constitutional Carry during his time in the Senate.

And he’s never asked for a meeting to discuss the issue.

The only time he’s ever uttered the words “Constitutional Carry” have been in the last few months after GGO members and supporters put massive heat on him, and I confronted him insisting he return his survey.

If you need a reminder about all the work it took to get him on the record, please click below . . .

Left-wing gun grabber Stacey Abrams is licking her chops, hoping she can separate the Republican candidate who emerges on July 24th from conservative, Second Amendment voters.

I’m afraid Cagle’s dishonesty about “Constitutional Carry” could do just that.

For freedom,

Patrick Parsons
Executive Director
Georgia Gun Owners

P.S. Please join or renew with GGO today to help us keep up the fight.

A Nibble on the Sun
Image Credit & Copyright: Padraic Koen, Adelaide, South Australia

Explanation: The smallest of the three partial solar eclipses during 2018 was just yesterday, Friday, July 13. It was mostly visible over the open ocean between Australia and Antarctica. Still, this video frame of a tiny nibble on the Sun was captured through a hydrogen-alpha filter from Port Elliott, South Australia, during the maximum eclipse visible from that location. There, the New Moon covered about 0.16 percent of the solar disk. The greatest eclipse, about one-third of the Sun’s diameter blocked by the New Moon, could be seen from East Antarctica near Peterson Bank, where the local emperor penguin colony likely had the best view. During this prolific eclipse season, the coming Full Moon will bring a total lunar eclipse on July 27, followed by yet another partial solar eclipse at the next New Moon on August 11.
