The Scottish Highlands

The Scottish Highlands covers nearly 10,000 sq miles in northern Scotland, and is the home to some of the most magnificent scenery in the world, including the legendary Loch Ness. Divided into two regions, the Great Glen divides the Grampian Mountains to the southeast from the northwest Highlands, where three languages are spoken: English, Scots and Gaelic. At around ~4,400 ft in elevation, standing on the western edge of the Grampians' lies Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in the UK, as well as the historic county of Inverness-shire. Extending about 23 miles southwest of Inverness lies the second largest Scottish loch; the legendary Loch Ness. Loch Ness hold more fresh water than all the lakes in England and Wales combined. ..................................................................................... #art #photography #nature #education #scotland

A bottle containing a mysterious 126-year-old note was recently found hidden away inside the wall of a building in Boston. A person living in the Back Bay near Commonwealth Avenue found the bottle tucked into a space between their fireplace flue and an interior wall. The note inside the bottle had the name “Tom Ford” scrawled on it, along with the phrase “6 on Shea.” It was dated Sept. 23, 1894. Some think the note may be a record of a bet on a sporting team. https://whdh.com/news/bottle-containing-126-year-old-note-found-hidden-inside-wall-of-boston-building/ .................................................................. #earth #science #archaeology #news

Researchers found that Sagittarius A, (the black hole near the center of the Milky Way), is 2,000 light-years closer to the earth. Furthermore, our solar system is traveling 510,000 mph. VERA’s measurements are thought to be more accurate than past ones because the group used more advanced technology and corrected for how the earth’s atmosphere blurred earlier measurements. These results can be used to estimate other astronomical parameters such as the distribution of dark matter and its density around the solar system, and could even help scientists predict how often we should see hypothetical dark matter particles, if they exist. https://www.livescience.com/milky-way-black-hole-closer-to-earth.html ........................................................ #space #science #nature #technology #news

Daily Earth and Sun Report 12.21.2020 Solar Wind: speed: 399.7 km/sec density: 6.2 protons/cm^3 Not much different from yesterday. The solar winds are in the low-normal; no solar flaring; and no eruptive filaments. Geomagnetic conditions are quiet. 5:57 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYbjNC44lTw ................................................................................ #science #space #nature #education #news
