» Astronomy Pic of the Day: Noctilucent Clouds, Reflections, and Silhouettes

Sometimes it's night on the ground but day in the air. As the Earth rotates to eclipse the Sun, sunset rises up from the ground. Therefore, at sunset on the ground, sunlight still shines on clouds above. Under usual circumstances, a pretty sunset might be visible, but unusual noctilucent clouds float so high up they can be seen well after dark. Normally too dim to be seen, they may become visible just after sunset during the summer when illuminated by sunlight from below. Noctilucent clouds are the highest clouds known and thought to be part of polar mesospheric clouds. Featured here as they appeared two weeks ago, a network of noctilucent clouds was captured not only in the distant sky but in reflection from a small lake just north of Zwolle, Netherlands, with trees in stark silhouette across the horizon. Unusually bright noctilucent clouds continue to appear over much of northern Europe. Much about noctilucent clouds has been discovered only over the past decade, while how they form and evolve remains a topic of active research.

Great Add-Ons for Elder Scrolls Online Newbs

Jun 26, 2019 - 1:37 PM - by newsbot
newsbot's Avatar
As a WoW refugee, one of the things that I was most interested to learn is that Elder Scrolls Online features add-ons. Now, as any longtime WoW player can tell you, add-ons are often integral to effective gameplay. However, in ESO, I was more interested in utilitarian add-ons that can help with more mundane tasks like mass deconstruction and so forth. With that in mind, here are what I believe are the top five add-ons for any Elder Scrolls Online newb. ... [Read More]

One Punch Man: The Hero Nobody Knows Fighter Announced

newsbot's Avatar
One Punch Man is a popular license, but no one has ever seemed to crack the code on making a good video game for it, so nothing has been released. It's sort of hard to design a game around a character whose entire definition is that he ends fights quickly and is nigh-invulnerable otherwise. However, it looks like Spike Chunsoft and Bandai Namco... [Read More]
