Stunning NASA map reveals paths of 1,400 huge ‘hazard’ asteroids

A new map released by NASA has plotted the journeys of the majority of Earth’s most potentially dangerous asteroids through space, creating a swirling spirograph of over 1,400 gigantic asteroids that pass close to the planet’s orbit.

This has come up before but I forgot the answer, muse1111. A little pain-staking research has given me a clearer idea, although a plain old explanation is hard to find. I'm not a huge techie, so excuse me if this in error.

The Dark Count is a sensor-calibration measurement of current (ie,voltage) and resulting thermal properties. The EVE instrument measures solar irradiance in multiple wavelengths in fine detail and has many filters and such. The dark count must be compensated for so as not to degrade the data being recorded. Here is one definition I found from Apogee Imaging which makes CCD imagers for some NASA projects-

Dark Count

Next to the quantum efficiency, resolution (number of bits) and noise figure, this is perhaps the most important CCD specification. Dark count refers to that property of all CCD sensors to generate charge in each pixel on its own with time and depending on the temperature. The lower the temperature of the sensor, the lower the dark count.
Dark count is usually expressed in electrons per unit of time at a given temperature. It can also be expressed as a current per sensor area at a given temperature.
The sole reason that CCDs are cooled is to reduce the dark count effect. For example, a Kodak KAF-0402e and KAF-1602e sensor is specified to have a dark count of 50 electrons per second at 25° C. Taking a one-minute exposure at this temperature would generate 3000 electrons of thermally induced charge!

Although the dark count can be subtracted, the dark noise cannot. The dark noise is approximately the square root of the dark count. In this example, the dark noise is about 55 electrons. This could easily degrade any low-light image you attempted to capture over this period of time.

The strong and fast solar winds today may be the cause of the Dark Count spike seen on EVE. Solar winds near 800 km/s at ACE:

Great reading and viewing tonight Sol team. Muse, great question, Hugh, great answer. Also, loved loved loved, the video of the English Scientist demonstrating how he views the sun, that was soooo fun. Cool to know our sun was not born in M86. Interesting that the biggest flares come after solar max. Whiteangel posted a graph of sunspot numbers that I will go find and you can see a little delta flux on the downslope side of each cycle. I was noticing it last night and now we have this explanation today.

It looks like Comet ISON will be a flop and may experience the fate of that other over-hyped comet-Elenin. An article based on recent observations, has this to say-

"Past performances by dynamically "new" comets [newcomers to the inner solar system], as ISON has turned out to be, have typically been pretty lackluster. With very few exceptions, these comets brighten only very slowly [as they approach, after appearing promising when farther out].

In the lightcurve prediction graph presented by Scarmato, Morales and Gary, their green line corresponds to typical "new" comet behavior. Note that this suggests the comet's brightness barely ever breaks the naked-eye barrier, even at perihelion!

Further, if one accepts anything like the green line's absolute magnitude of +9.73 for the comet, then ISON has no chance of surviving its perihelion..."

I hope they're wrong 'cause I love a good comet. Even if it's not bright, it should still be a good show for SOHO and STEREO watchers.

Mysterious magnetar boasts one of strongest magnetic fields in Universe-

Scientists using ESA’s XMM-Newton space telescope have discovered that a curious dead star has been hiding one of the strongest magnetic fields in the Universe all along, despite earlier suggestions of an unusually low magnetic field.

The object, known as SGR 0418+5729 (or SGR 0418 for short), is a magnetar, a particular kind of neutron star. A small proportion of neutron stars form and live briefly as magnetars, named for their extremely intense magnetic fields, billions to trillions of times greater than those generated in hospital MRI machines, for example. These fields cause magnetars to erupt sporadically with bursts of high-energy radiation.

SGR 0418 lies in our galaxy, about 6500 light years from Earth. It was first detected in June 2009 by space telescopes including NASA’s Fermi and Roscosmos’ Koronas-Photon when it suddenly lit up in X-rays and soft gamma rays. It has been studied subsequently by a fleet of observatories, including ESA’s XMM-Newton.

Interesting discovery:

From the SDO blog site:
Coronal Holes
We see all sorts of things on the Sun and have named them all. Some names, such as chromosphere, make sense only if you speak an ancient language. One that is well named is a coronal hole, which is a dark area in the otherwise bright corona. As we move from solar maximum to the decline toward solar minimum, coronal holes will become a source of many of the disturbances to the geomagnetic field and the ionosphere that we call space weather. But what is a coronal hole and what does one look like?
X-ray images of the Sun often show the large dark regions that we call coronal holes. They may extend from the Sun's equator to its poles, a few from pole to pole. In the 1960's they were seen in X-ray images taken by sounding rockets and detected with some radio telescopes. They were first seen clearly in images taken by astronauts on board the Skylab space station in 1973 and 1974. Waldmeier had seen coronal holes in the 1950’s with a green line (Fe XIV 5303) coronagraph that allows the corona to be seen along the limb of the Sun but the X-ray images of the disk of the Sun really showed what they were.
