I was out with the dog at the right time.

Pink clouds due to the setting Sun over the snow covered intervale near Fryeburg.

Code enforcement issues from the town next door are becoming national news: https://youtu.be/0BFeWnQa_OI. It looks like a mural to me, but what they didn’t report is how delicious those pastries are.

I love all the ranting about the Chinese Spy Balloon, when we know that both the U.S. and China have fleets of spy satellites that can probably provide a close-up of an ant's face on the ground from anywhere over the other's country. Talk about political theater. Jeez.

Did you catch our recent #ChandraScience image of Abell 2256, a spectacular merger of at least three galaxy clusters? The hot gas components of these clusters is traced with X-rays -- shown here in blue, using data from us (#Chandra) and our ESA-led friends at #XMM-Newton. This cosmic collision is also a source of radio emission, shown in red from #LOFAR, #GMRT, and the #VLA, produced via particle acceleration. For more details, see

Composite image of at least three galaxy clusters colliding in a jumbled scene. The resulting giant galaxy cluster, known as Abell 2256, resembles a grainy, pixelated, sky blue cloud topped with licks of flaming red hair. The cloud is adorned with red shapes and streaks, and set against a black background heavily dotted with colorful specks.
Near our lower left sits the oval-shaped, sky-blue cloud pixelated with white dots. This is the center of the combined galaxy cluster. 
Shooting out of the giant cluster, angled toward our upper-middle right, is a straight, thin red line. This is a jet; a stream of particles blasting away from a giant black hole. A second, much shorter jet, crosses the tip of the first jet near the right hand side of the image.
In the giant cluster, on the right hand side, are several irregular shapes. One resembles a bright white bean with a red outline. Beside it is a tangle of overlapping red shapes dangling out the bottom of the cloud. These are filaments, the result of jets interacting with gas. Three other irregular red filaments can be found to our left, just outside of the giant cluster.
At the upper right hand edge of the oval-shaped giant cluster are sweeping sheets of red, which resemble lapping flames or licks of red hair. These relics are the results of shockwaves, likely generated by the collision of gas from the different clusters.

This is a honk API test. If you see this then I have learned how to use the API.

Maine Life: got topped off on heating oil today, just in time for it to drop below -15 °F.
