Hey Space Placers!
As I look outside and see the snow blowing in sub-zero temps (a rarity in Virginia) I just read about NASA's determination that 2013 was tied with 2009 and 2006 for the 7th warmest year since 1880. The planet has warmed up an average of 1.4 degrees F since 1880. 2013 was the 42nd warmest for the U.S. while the warmest on record for Australia.
I have to cut this short as I have to leave for my observatory so I can photograph the new supernova in a close galaxy, M-82. I hope to have a pic for you and more on the supernova tomorrow.
For those of you in the mid-Atlantic, be safe in this bitter wind and cold.
