Sky Watch – Mammatus Clouds

Dear Furiends,mtele

I found this amazing photo of mammatus clouds on Pinterest. This type of cloud usually forms on the underside of a cumulonimbus, but they can develop underneath cirrocumulus, altostratus, altocumulus and stratocumulus. In order for them the form, the sinking air must be cooler than the air around it and have high liquid water or ice content.

Keep an eye on the sky, dear furiends – there are amazing things up there.



10 Fire Tricks

M=microDear Furiends,

Today I am sharing 10 Fire Tricks… make sure your parents help you! Also, if you’re the parent, pay purrticular attention to the things that can catch fire… many of them do not seem likely to burn… I mean would you expect hand sanitizer to be flammable?

And IF you store pool chemicals next to petroleum products, you’ll want to pay purrticular attention to what happens with chlorine and oil are combined….

WD-40 looks scary, too….

20 Must Try Science Experiments for Kids

Dear Furiends,M=micro

Purrseidon seems to think Halloween is about dressing up… between you and me, she loves dressing up, so thinks everything is about that …  However, in this ole’ tom’s opinion, it is about fun and pumpkins … several of these fun experiments involve pumpkins. Click here to see all 20 Must Try Science Experiments. (Ms. Ellen of 15 and meowing alerted me to these.)

mteleDear Furiends,

I was making notes to write a post about Cassini’s final plunge, then realized that my down-under friends, the Dash Kitten Crew, had already written an excellent one.  Cassini’s journey began 13 years ago and NASA received its final signal this past Friday with a meteor-like plunge into Saturn’s

It is wonderful to know other cats are keeping an eye on the sky, too!

Dear Furiends,mtele

As I patiently wait for August 21, 2017, which is only one week away , I get more and more excited about the upcoming solar eclipse.

I also pray that there will not be cloud cover…. while I normally adore clouds, because they provide a bit of relief from the summer heat, I will be very upset if they interfere with my eclipse viewing.

Thus, for this week’s science video, I chose this one about fun facts of eclipses.

Keep an eye on the sky, dear furiends,
