I wrote this down about two weeks ago after spotting some patterns. November looks like a cold shot will start but we’ll see what happens after.
Theme wet, cold and changeable.
Nov warm start, wsw gales but not intense, changeable and wet but not overly so becomes east focused as cold moves in later 3rd week on. Pressure builds, lies over UK, N sea and N/NW France sharp frost frequent fog. Pressure eases and fog/frost moister warmer air.
December: start cyclonic weak depressions with sleet snow in nw & later snow generally over uk sharp frosts s/e as lows pass, then deep low? Large variations in temp with passing of lows, clear skies and nw/sw influence. Thunder and lightning possible during this period. Pressure builds from nw. Calms. Frost and fog. Temps in low 20s °F. towards month end large elongated low splits to rapid deepening low over s, pulls cold air west leading to blizzards but not a freeze as like heat of June short sharp burst. Deep snow likely to melt fast as temps rises after. Adhesive snowfall. Pressure rises, cold. Mostly cyclonic month but few deep gales.
Jan continues changeable mostly coldish ending mild. Start cold then briefly mild as low passes but becoming steadily milder due to frequent depressions.
Feb cold but not a freeze. Sharp night frosts. Quiet. Shift from cyclonic at month start. Temps falling. Frost and quiet. Cold nights, mild days. Probably warmer mid month as high recedes losing frosts but mostly calm. Returns week of . 14th and ends month with increasing frost and fog.
Mar April May quite below average. Snow showers frequent but not a freeze. Less cold nights due to frequent changes/cloud cover but cold winds lots of showery weather.
The tapestry continues to be unpicked.
Following the Terrestrial Thorium line of enquiry to the Far Side of the Moon very rapidly becomes a fascinating journey to the Far Side as the Settled Science turns to dust and this independent observer is led to conclude the once wandering Earth only settled into it’s current steady orbital rhythm after it became entrained with the Moon.
The point of departure for this journey to the Far Side is the Tale of Two Thoriums as narrated by the Near and Far sides of the Moon.
The asymmetry in the distribution of Thorium spread across the Lunar surface starkly highlights the scientific shambles that is the KREEP narrative.
The gamma-ray spectrometer data shows that the rocks rich in potassium, rare earth elements and phosphorus, known as KREEP, are concentrated in the Mare Imbrium rim, the nearside maria and highlands near Imbrium and the Mare Ingenii South Pole-Aitken basin…

Write a sobering video, although the recognition of the libertarian perspective which falls to the left and right is somewhat of a salve. More and more people are walking up…is it too late?
This is actually quite brutal. The poor interviewer could hardly get a word in 😱😂

We now know that Saturn’s rings share a process with spiral galaxies, and the unique co-orbital pattern of two of its moons get some attention.
This view from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft shows a wave structure in Saturn’s rings known as the Janus 2:1 spiral density wave, reports Phys.org.
Resulting from the same process that creates spiral galaxies, spiral density waves in Saturn’s rings are much more tightly wound.
In this case, every second wave crest is actually the same spiral arm which has encircled the entire planet multiple times. This is the only major density wave visible in Saturn’s B ring.

Some Pythagorean triples [credit: Cmglee / Wikipedia]
Could Babylonian base-60 maths be about to make a comeback? The tablet has been dated to between 1822 and 1762 BC and is based on Pythagorean triples, as Phys.org reports. It uses ‘a novel kind of trigonometry based on ratios, not angles and circles’.
UNSW Sydney scientists have discovered the purpose of a famous 3700-year old Babylonian clay tablet, revealing it is the world’s oldest and most accurate trigonometric table, possibly used by ancient mathematical scribes to calculate how to construct palaces and temples and build canals.
The new research shows the Babylonians beat the Greeks to the invention of trigonometry – the study of triangles – by more than 1000 years, and reveals an ancient mathematical sophistication that had been hidden until now.
Known as Plimpton 322, the small tablet was discovered in the early 1900s in what is now…

If it’s 97% it must be a consensus 😉
Despite the early heatwave it has been for the most part an increasingly poor wet summer, highlighted best by the Central England Temperatures which have been going down;
Further north, it has of course been far wetter, however nothing like in Western Norway where it’s been very wet in some places for 70 out of 72 (97%!) days as the Jetstream has increasingly taken a sojourn over Northwestern Europe.
Norway has indeed had a poor summer;

These two 1977 vintage machines really are ‘cosmic overachievers’ as this Phys.org report calls them. Voyager 1 reached interstellar space in 2012, but the last science instrument is not due to be switched off until 2030.
Humanity’s farthest and longest-lived spacecraft, Voyager 1 and 2, achieve 40 years of operation and exploration this August and September.
Despite their vast distance, they continue to communicate with NASA daily, still probing the final frontier. Their story has not only impacted generations of current and future scientists and engineers, but also Earth’s culture, including film, art and music.
Each spacecraft carries a Golden Record of Earth sounds, pictures and messages. Since the spacecraft could last billions of years, these circular time capsules could one day be the only traces of human civilization.
