ECLIPSE MOSTLY OBSCURED BY POOR WEATHER
The last solar eclipse of the millenium was met with generally poor
weather, as viewers from across Europe and the Middle East watched
the Sun disappear behind the moon. In Cornwall England, viewers saw
the two minutes of totality through a haze of cloud, but were able
to make out a few brief glimpses.
ASTRONOMERS INVESTIGATE SUPERCLUSTER THEORY
Astronomers are gathered at the U.K.'s National astronomy Meeting
in Guernsey to hash out the latest theories of why Galaxies clump
together into gigantic superclusters instead of spreading out evenly
across the universe. New models developed with the aid of
supercomputers may help provide some answers.
SURVEYOR SHOWS TURBULENT WEATHER ON MARS
The latest data sent back by the Mars Global Surveyor shows a
host of weather patterns on the Red planet - pink storms, shifting
sand dunes, and frost-covered sand. The strangest is what seems
like frost-covered vegetation near the planet's South pole, but
are actually spots of seasonal warming on the dunes.
CONTROVERSIAL CASSINI FLYBY APPROACHES
Every time Cassini swings by the Earth for a valuable gravity
assist on its way to Saturn, it also stirs up a little controversy
thanks to its plutonium reactor, which protestors fear could cause
damage if the probe crashed. Cassini's final slingshot past the
Earth will happen on August 17th, and will arrive at Saturn in 2004.
