Sunshine & Mild
It will be mostly sunny and mild today but high thin clouds will be on the increase later in the day and at night. Temperatures will warm into the uper 60s today and then low to mid 70s for Friday and Saturday. See the FORECAST TEMPERATURES for your area. A weak cold front will advance into the region Saturday night with a few clouds and possible scattered light showers to be associated with it. Fair and cooler, but mild, weather will follow for Sunday and Monday.

The Horsehead & Flame Nebulae
I took this picture Tuesday night near midnight when it was high in the Eastern sky. This is the eqivalant of a one hour expsure.

These Nebulae are about 1,500 light-years away and the horse's head is mainly a large dust cloud obscuring the stars and nebulous gasses. The red color originates from hydrogen gas predominantly behind the nebula, ionized by the nearby bright star above the "horse's head", Sigma Orionis. To the bottome is the "Flame Nebula". The very bright star seperating the two nebulae is "Alnitak" and is the left star of the 3 that form the belt of Orion. Much of the glow results when the electrons and ionized hydrogen recombine. Additional dark gas and dust lie in front of the bright part of the nebula and this is what causes the dark network that appears in the center of the glowing gas. All of this is part of Orion where nearby is the famous Orion Nebula.

This is a new product that I have been watching from Tropical Tidbits Climate Models. This is not a forecast but just an 'outlook'. Keep in mind, the 7 day period is the average of those days with some days above the values and other could be below the values. This is used to get a better idea as to what to expect (maybe).
