Thousands converge in Australia for total solar eclipse November 13-14, 2012

[link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

November 10, 2012 – SPACE – People from around the world are converging on the coast of northeast Australia. The attraction isn’t the Great Barrier Reef, just offshore, or the surrounding rain forests full of wildlife and exotic plants. They’re going to see a total eclipse of the sun. On the morning of Nov. 14th (Australia time), about an hour after sunrise, the Moon will pass directly in front of the sun. Residents and visitors of the city of Cairns, also known as the Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, will enjoy an early morning eclipse lasting 2 minutes with the sun only 14 degrees above the eastern horizon. NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak has a rating scheme for natural wonders. “On a scale of 1 to 10,” he says, “total eclipses are a million.” Even the reef itself will be momentarily forgotten by onlookers as the Moon’s cool shadow sweeps across the beach and the ghostly tendrils of the solar corona surround the black lunar disk. But there’s more to this event than tourism. Scientists are attending, too. For researchers, the brief minutes of totality offer a window into one of the deepest mysteries of solar physics: The mystery of coronal heating. In plain language, they’d like to know why the sun’s outer atmosphere or “corona” is so hot. The surface temperature of the sun is only 6000 degrees C. Yet the corona above it is much warmer, a million degrees Celsius or even more. To understand the physics involved, astronomers have developed instruments called coronagraphs, which block the glare of the sun to reveal the faint corona. Three spacecraft, SOHO and the twin STEREO probes, currently monitor the solar corona using these devices. But no manmade instrument can match Earth’s natural satellite. The Moon is nature’s greatest coronagraph. During an eclipse, “the moon reveals the innermost corona, which manmade coronagraphs have trouble seeing,” explains Shadia Habbal of the Institute for Astronomy in Hawaii. “That is where all the magnetic field and physical processes responsible for heating the corona are evolving most rapidly.” –NASA

Only the eyes at risk from dark day ahead

[link to www.newswire.co.nz]

Those who believe a complete solar eclipse of the sun means bad news all round may be worried about what will happen later this year.
On November 14 a total eclipse will occur in a narrow path (the path of totality) across the South Pacific, while a partial solar eclipse will be visible over a region thousands of kilometers wide.
This will be the closest New Zealand has come to a total solar eclipse as it has been for nearly 50 years.
While missing out on total darkness, parts of northern New Zealand including Auckland will experience a partial eclipse with over 80% of the sun obscured. Christchurch and points north will see at least 60% of the sun covered.
Maximum eclipse over New Zealand will occur around 10:30am and Wellington will see about 75% of the sun obscured.
A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between Earth and the sun, totally or partially obscuring the sun for a viewer on Earth, turning day into darkness.
John Talbot, president of the Wellington Astronomical Society, says while solar eclipses are quite common as they occur every year or two, they are usually somewhere else in the world.
“The path of totality is very narrow, so for any one place to see a total eclipse more than once in quick succession is quite rare.
“In a number of cases, the sun either rises or sets in eclipse, so only the last or first part of the eclipse is visible.”
Mr Talbot says the society has permission from Wellington City Council to use the City-to-Sea bridge near Civic Square for a public viewing on the morning of the eclipse.
The society will be using a sun funnel mounted on a small telescope, making it suitable for solar eclipse viewing.
“Our main objective in Wellington for the event will be to try to measure the time of maximum eclipse accurately, as well as taking photos and measuring images to establish the positions of the moon and sun,” says Mr Talbot.
The path of totality begins at dawn in the north of Northern Australia. After crossing the Gulf of Carpentaria and York Peninsula including Cairns, the total eclipse path then heads across the southern Pacific, touching no further land.
At least one member of the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand will be travelling on a boat along the path of totality as it occurs.
This will be the closest a total eclipse has come to New Zealand since May 31, 1965, when total darkness occurred just after sunrise north of Whangarei.
On September 9, 1885, a total eclipse was visible across Wellington, Nelson, Wairarapa and Manawatu.
In 2028, a total eclipse will occur along the bottom of the South Island, while between 2035 and 2038 three eclipses will occur over central New Zealand.
How dangerous is it to look at the eclipse?

WHILE we may be tempted to stare at the natural phenomenon, there a warnings that an eclipse can cause serious damage to eyes.
Those who think that wearing sunglasses will make a difference need to reconsider.
John Talbot says while sunglasses shade visible light, they do not thwart infra-red light.
“Even dark welding goggles cannot be assured of protecting your eyes from the sun.
“It’s very important to get the message out that nobody should look directly at the sun. The retina has no sensitivity to pain, and the damage can remain unnoticed for hours or days.”
Mr Talbot says specially made dark glasses are available to purchase through the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand.

Stunning solar eclipse visible over NZ 14/11/12

[link to www.scoop.co.nz]

Tuesday, 6 November 2012, 5:49 pm
Press Release: Stardome Observatory

MEDIA RELEASE

2 November 2012

Stunning solar eclipse soon visible over New Zealand

On the morning of the 14th November 2012 all of New Zealand will be treated to a fine partial eclipse of the Sun. An eclipse of the Sun occurs when the Moon passes directly between Earth and the Sun casting a shadow on the Earth.

For this eclipse, the further north you are in New Zealand, the more the Sun will appear to be covered by the Moon. From Auckland, maximum obscuration (coverage) will reach 87% and the Sun will appear as a brilliant bright crescent. In the far south of the country the obscuration will still reach a respectable 57% while the greatest coverage of the Sun will be seen from Northland's east coast where it will reach nearly 91%. The next eclipse with this amount of obscuration seen from New Zealand will not occur until 2028 and Auckland will not see a better solar eclipse until 2035.

The shadow of the Moon creates a 180km wide path of totality that travels from west to east across the Pacific, starting in northern Australia and passing about midway between New Zealand and New Caledonia. It continues eastward finishing just before reaching the coast of Chile. Norfolk Island is located right on the edge of totality with 98% obscuration. The northern parts of Australia are the only land areas that experience the total eclipse. Thousands of keen eclipse enthusiasts will be congregating in Queensland while others will be viewing the eclipse from cruise liners and aircraft positioned along the path of totality across the Pacific.

Stardome’s honorary astronomer, Dr Grant Christie, said ,"Solar eclipses don't happen every New Moon because the Moon's orbit about Earth is tilted by about 5 degrees relative to the Earth's orbit around the Sun. In most months the New Moon passes above or below the Sun so no eclipse occurs. But an eclipse will occur when the Moon happens to cross the plane of Earth's orbit close to times of New Moon."

From Auckland, the partial eclipse will start at 9.18am reaching maximum coverage at 10:28am and ending at 11.44am. These times will vary at a bit at other centres.

The Stardome at One Tree Hill will be open to the public on the morning of 14 November providing safe viewing of the eclipse through the special telescopes. For a gold coin donation visitors will be able to watch a short movie about solar eclipses in the impressive 360 degree planetarium theatre at Stardome.

Viewing the Sun directly without a safe solar viewer is very dangerous and can cause permanent blindness. Stardome is selling certified safe solar viewers via its shop and online shop and will have them for sale on the day. There won't be another chance to see an eclipse like this for another 16 years so, have your safe solar viewers at the ready and, if you get the chance, head to Stardome - Auckland’s home for observing the skies.

Dark morning in November

[link to www.predictweather.co.nz]

During a solar eclipse, the moon's apparent diameter is larger than the sun, blocking all direct sunlight for viewers on earth and turning day into darkness as the moon passes between earth and sun. Totality occurs in a narrow path across the surface of the earth.

This event will occur on 14 November around 10:30 AM and this time the maximum eclipse will be almost over New Zealand, passing 1100 miles to our east. The best place on the globe to see it from will be Cairns, followed by Norfolk Island and Auckland 4 hours after Cairns. Whilst Cairns gets 100% of the visual effect, Auckland will see 80% of the sun obscured, and Christchurch, 60%. See path below.

(courtesy [link to www.timeanddate.com] )

The cycle of solar and lunar eclipses around the earth repeats every 223 lunar months, which means 223 full Moons must be counted before earth, moon and sun are again in the same positions in the sky. It means these total solar eclipses occur every roughly 18 years. The last was in 1994 and the next will be in 2030.

This eclipse will be 12 hours before lunar perigee, and perigee eclipses should be respected. The 14 November is the day of new moon, the day the moon is third closest to earth for the whole year (perigee), and also in direct line ("node") with the sun. Consequently the moon will exert extra gravitational pull on earth not diminished by parallax. These factors allow increased turbulence to land sea and air. The 14th is also the first day of a kingtide that will last until the 16th.

Eclipses were feared in ancient times but much of the reason why has become lost in antiquity. Today it is an unrecognised science and if extreme weather arrives around an eclipse it is more likely to be called a fluke. However it will be found that eclipses are always in some way related to the area of a disaster, especially if the eclipse is visible in the predicted area of a disaster.

A magnitude 6 earthquake struck Japan as a total solar eclipse occurred on March 29, 2006 and within 24 hours the satellite responsible for NZ's SKY Network Television failed. On the 31st a 6.1-mag earthquake struck western Iran. Following the August 1999 solar eclipse, destructive floods came to France and Italy, major earthquakes occurred in Turkey and Greece, and a huge cyclone hit India. Martinique’s Mt. Pelee eruption in 1902 was preceded by a total lunar eclipse.

Sometimes extreme events may occur a month or more either side of eclipse. For example the solar eclipse of 10 May 1994 may one month later have triggered the 1994 Arthurs Pass earthquake of 6.7mag (18 June) which was the largest on land in NZ for 65 years and which spawned over 12,000 seismic events over the next two years in Canterbury.

The Tangshan, China earthquake of 1976 may also be a good example, with an eclipse over Tangshan three months earlier. The same may hold true for the 1900 Galveston, TX hurricane that claimed over 6,000 lives, preceded by a solar eclipse just four months earlier. And yet again they all may be amazing coincidences.

Right now we are about three months out from 14 November. But there has already been activity beneath Mt Tongariro and White Island and a noticeable increase in earthquakes to the northeast of the North island close to the eclipse path. Stress and unsettlement may be brewing way down under the plates which may culminate in something larger between now and the eclipse.

(Update: the above paragraph mentioning Tongariro was written, along with the rest of this article, on 5 August. On 7 Aug, Mt Tongariro erupted, [link to www.nzherald.co.nz] )

Total eclipses can also bring sudden temperature drops. During the 7 March 1970 eclipse the temperature in Norfolk, Virginia fell by 11degC. In the eclipse of 11 July 1991 the temperature in Baja California dropped 7degC. During total eclipse if there is a lot of moisture aloft, the dew point may be reached very quickly as temperature drops and extensive sheets of heavy cloud may form.

So the situation is worth a warning, but probably not a panic warning. However, as always, exact magnitude and location is unpredictable and the most we can say is that the time is a risk-filled one. Vigilance should be observed in areas showing the greatest seismic murmurings and Civil Defence should be alerted. Whenever there is a significant shake there are also smaller shakes in other prone zones.

Due to significant moon positions alone we can say that over the kingtide+close perigee+new moon+southern declination interval of 13-16 November, heavy rain and flooding are likely from Central Plateau southwards, expected to cover much of the South Island. The widespread heavy rain may be associated with significant electrical activity, with squalls and thunderstorms also affecting central New Zealand.

Consequently the Tararua and Ruahine Ranges could receive torrential rain, flooding may affect parts of Wellington and rivers may burst banks in Wanganui, southern Wairarapa, Buller and Fiordland. Also, by the 17 November, westerlies may reach gale force in central and eastern regions. The November eclipse will probably add weight to these possibilities and there is plenty of time now to prepare.

Update on 23 October: many earthquakes have been occurring in the Gisborne/BoP/central North island zone. The shakes are happening not only in Gisborne but all along the East Cape and BoP because that is the closest to the eclipse path on 14 November. To some extent too, the rest of the east of the country is also seeing action. This flurry is likely to cease after the eclipse event. But between now and then we will see many more in the east and especially the North Island's east. One signal was the 5.5mag shake in Taupo on 14 October, close to the October perigee, and exactly one month (moon minicycle) from the 14 November eclipse. It was the type of dress-rehearsal seen often with eclipses. Christchurch should be safe, with smaller shakes and magnitudes unlikely to go beyond high 4's, but the NE and SW of NZ may get the larger events.

Satellite radar could predict deadliest eruptions

[link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

November 10, 2012 – INDONESIA – The world’s deadliest and largest volcanic eruptions happen in Indonesia. Future eruptions in this jungle-filled region could be better predicted by using satellite radar to detect swelling magma near the summit of those volcanoes, a new study suggests. To search for evidence of imminent eruptions, scientists monitored surface changes at 79 volcanoes with technology called Synthetic Aperture Radar Interferometry (InSAR). The data were gathered between 2006 and 2009 by the Japanese Space Exploration Agency’s ALOS satellite. The researchers found that six volcanoes in Indonesia “inflated” during the study period — and three of these later erupted. One was the thought to be dormant: Mount Sinabung, which inflated 3 inches in 2007 and 2008 before erupting in 2010. More than 17,500 people were evacuated. “If we could have had this data in real-time, we could have had an idea that this was not a dormant volcano,” said study author Estelle Chaussard, a doctoral student at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Fla. Remote sensing by satellite could be a valuable tool for predicting eruptions in Indonesia, including its largest island Sumatra, Chaussard told OurAmazingPlanet. The nation is home to 13 percent of the world’s most active and lethal volcanoes, but threats such as tigers and thick jungle vegetation make ground-based GPS monitoring nearly impossible. “I’m hopeful in the future we could use InSAR are a forecast tool,” Chaussard said. “With this type of survey, we are able to see the big picture. You can detect the behavior of volcanoes with time, even if you are in jungle conditions, where you don’t have ground monitoring.” When molten rock travels though underground passages beneath a volcano, the ground above it changes, with some areas inflating as magma moves upward and others deflate as a magma chamber empties. Indonesian volcanoes are covered by thick vegetation, and in general, radar bands can’t penetrate such plant life. The ALOS used a special radar band to collect its data. While that satellite is now defunct, a replacement, ALOS-2, is planned for launch in 2013. The study is the first time several volcanoes were monitored simultaneously using this technology. Researchers have detected pre-eruption deformation by satellite before, for instance, on individual volcanoes in Alaska and Hawaii. –MSNBC

Quake to leave Wellington cut off for months.
13 Nov 2012


A big quake could leave Wellington reliant on barges and helicopters for survival, new disaster predictions show.

Massive landslides would cut off Porirua, the Hutt Valley and Wellington from the rest of New Zealand and from one another, with inbound roads taking up to four months to clear.

All three areas would rely on barges and helicopters to ferry in food, clean water and vital medical supplies.

The would be no power, water or gas for at least three weeks, and for more than two months in some Wellington suburbs.

Wellington city would be cut off for the longest, with no power for at least two months and no gas for three.

It would take at least 55 days to open State Highway 2 between the Hutt Valley and Wellington, and three weeks to connect the capital and Porirua.

The grim predictions are contained in a report by the Wellington Lifelines Group, which includes 20 of the region's major infrastructure companies and civil defence authorities......(more)

A total solar eclipse will see Tauranga plunge into almost complete darkness during the day later this month.
The total eclipse will take place on Wednesday, November 14 with Tauranga set to witness almost 90 per cent coverage of the sun in the morning.

A total solar eclipse will see Tauranga experience 86 per cent darkness during the day.
The eclipse is due to begin in Tauranga at 9.20am and finish at 11.47am, with 86 per cent coverage at 10.30am.
A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the sun, blocking all direct sunlight and turning day into darkness.
According to the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand, as seen from New Zealand, the sun and moon will not line up perfectly so Kiwis will only witness a partial eclipse of the sun.
The eclipse will be most impressive from North Cape where 91 per cent coverage is expected at 10.21am.

Prince Charles' New Zealand birthday to be eclipsed

[link to www.stuff.co.nz]

A partial eclipse will cast a shadow over Prince Charles' 64th birthday bash when he is in New Zealand.

Officials have organised the November 14 party, which 64 kiwis who share the same birth date have been invited to attend, in Wellington the same day as the eclipse.

A total eclipse will occur in a narrow path (the path of totality) across the South Pacific, while a partial solar eclipse will be visible over a region thousands of kilometres wide.

This will be the closest New Zealand has come to a total solar eclipse in nearly 50 years. While missing out on total darkness, parts of northern New Zealand will experience a partial eclipse with over 80 per cent of the sun obscured. In the south, Christchurch and above, the sun will be at least 60 per cent covered.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between Earth and the sun, totally or partially obscuring the sun.

John Talbot, president of the Wellington Astronomical Society, said while solar eclipses were quite common, they happen every year or two, they were usually somewhere else in the world.

"The path of totality is very narrow, so for any one place to see a total eclipse more than once in quick succession is quite rare.

"In a number of cases, the sun either rises or sets in eclipse, so only the last or first part of the eclipse is visible."

Talbot said the society had permission from the Wellington City Council to use the City-to-Sea bridge near Civic Square for a public viewing on the morning of the eclipse.

The society would be using a sun funnel mounted on a small telescope, making it suitable for solar eclipse viewing.

"Our main objective in Wellington for the event will be to try to measure the time of maximum eclipse accurately, as well as taking photos and measuring images to establish the positions of the moon and sun," said Talbot.

The path of totality begins at dawn in the north of northern Australia. After crossing the Gulf of Carpentaria and York Peninsula, it then heads across the southern Pacific.

At least one member of the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand will be travelling on a boat along the path of totality as it occurs.

This will be the closest a total eclipse has come to New Zealand since May 31, 1965, when then was total darkness just after sunrise north of Whangarei.

On September 9, 1885, a total eclipse was visible across Wellington, Nelson, Wairarapa and Manawatu.

In 2028 a total eclipse will take place along the bottom of the South Island, while between 2035 and 2038 three eclipses will happen over central New Zealand.

Watch online: Total solar eclipse in northern Australia, Tuesday

"Although the eclipse starts at sunrise in the Eastern Hemisphere and ends at sunset in the Western Hemisphere, the shadow path crosses the International Date Line going from west to east. That means the local date of the eclipse changes from Wednesday, November 14 to Tuesday, November 13. Befuddling though this may be, people on the east side of the International Date Line (Chile, Cook Islands and American Samoa) will see the eclipse on November 13, whereas people on the west side (New Guinea, Australia and New Zealand) will see the eclipse on November 14."

Stormy weather has struck Auckland this afternoon, leaving parts of the city blanketed in hail.

Thunder, heavy rain and hailstorms have been forecasted for the central and upper North Island this afternoon, while the rest of the North Island is expected to escape with showers.

Did you see any hail? Email your photos and videos to news@tvnz.co.nz

New entrant students at Baverstock Oaks Primary School in South Auckland were amazed to see their school courtyard covered with hail this afternoon.

The burst of wet weather is expected to be replaced with mainly fine conditions across the North Island tomorrow.

Meanwhile, punters at Addington Raceway in Christchurch should expect fine weather with a chance of light rain for the rest of the week.

this is not good, they do not look like the kind of people who would want to worry their family's unnecessarily....

Police concerned for missing couple

[link to tvnz.co.nz]

Police are appealing for public help to locate a couple who have not been seen since visiting relatives in the Bay of Plenty over a week ago.

Te Arawa Karaitiana, 20, and his female partner, 27-year-old Carli Pugh, were last seen when they left Pugh's grandfather's Whakatane home on Sunday November 4.

Detective Sergeant Mata John of the Ngaruawahia CIB said the couple left in a mauve coloured Toyota RAV4 vehicle, registration number ANG948.

"We believe they were headed back to their New Windsor, Auckland home but they never arrived," she said.

"Neither Te Arawa or Carli have been seen by either of their families since then and both they and police hold concerns for the couple's safety."

Pugh is described as a female Maori about 162cm tall and of solid build. Karaitiana is described as a male Maori 182cm tall of medium to thin build.

John has asked anyone who is aware of the couple's whereabouts or has seen their vehicle to contact Ngaruawahia police 07 8248199.

Alternatively information can be left with Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

If the couple see or hear media coverage of their disappearance they should make contact with police or family, John said.

[link to www.geonet.org.nz]

lots of messt looking signals on both the northland drums
[link to www.geonet.org.nz]

[link to www.geonet.org.nz]
especially here on the waipu caves drum, where it looks like swarms

in the past, this has been an indicator of an impending large pacific quake..
 Quoting: Tauranga


I believe there is going to be a big pacific quake soon...its way overdue.

Hey T..somewhere I saw you ask when I lived in Tauranga whether people seemed to be aware of the volcanoes in the region? I cant find your question but to answer....NO...a resounding no. Even I had absolutely no idea when I lived there....certainly didnt realise that Mayor was a Volcano!!

I was most afraid of a tsunami from a quake...and this was talked about by many in the Papamoa Mount...but the only conversation I ever had about volcanoes would have been White Island....

imo a very, very brave man speaking out like that. His vision is correct.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11859877


FOR SURE...scary vision but its way overdue and unfortunately Wellington is not in a good position for a major Quake at all...

I live in the Wairarapa...we too have the problem that we could also get cut off from civilisation for awhile, as we are located in a Valley...its not a nice thought but preparation is about all you can do!
