This video shows one of my new favorite things about the
solstice. The Japanese Meteorological Agency’s Himawari-8 weather satellite is
in a geostationary position over the Pacific Ocean and eastern parts of Asia,
sending down pictures to monitor weather over that part of the planet. In the
process, it gets a full frame view of the orb of the Earth, and it
automatically shares clips from its cameras online. Here’s the view taken as
the sun set yesterday just before the official solstice time – take a look at
the poles. The North pole never exits a shadow and the South Pole is a tiny
sliver of light that never goes away – the best shot you’ll get of this
arrangement for a year. This one also gives some nice sunglint on the sea just
before the sun goes down – reflection of the sunlight off the smooth surface of

Jasminum sambac is in the olive family Oleaceae. Commonly known as Arabian jasmine, it is native to eastern Asia including India, Indonesia, Cambodia, and the Philippines. Arabian jasmine is an evergreen shrub that can grow up to 10 feet tall, producing terminal cymes of highly fragrant white flowers. These flowers are used in a variety of ways by many different cultures. Arabian jasmine is the national flower of the Philippines, and it is used to create floral decorations for holidays in this country and other southeast Asian nations. The flowers are used as the main ingredient of Jasmine tea, and are also commonly used to make perfumes. The most common use of the Arabian jasmine is as a garden ornamental, where it is cultivated in many areas across the globe.
This electrifying sequence was captured yesterday from Ibiza, an island in southeastern Spain. What looked to be a bother on the horizon, though, turned out to be a blessing. The composite picture features over 200 digitally combined images from the same location over the course of a night. The full moon is seen setting as it faded to red in Earth’s shadow and then returned to normal. Although the next total eclipse of a large and bright supermoon will occur in 2033, the next total eclipse of any full moon will occur in January 2018 and be best visible from eastern Asia and Australia.
You know what upsets me? The utter lack of Asian AUs. I’ve heard loads of black Hermione, Latino or Indian Harry, and I think they’re all great and lovely ideas, but I have not once heard of an Asian AU (Yes I do realize Indians are Asians pls chill for a sec), and it makes me so sad because I feel like I’ll never have a place to belong. So bring in the Chinese Hermione or Korean Harry AUs. Please include us.
