The volcano in Mexico City Popocatepetl "Popo" has gone off again. This time quite big one by all accounts.
See the video and watch as the whole mountain shakes, and clouds are blown away by the force. Marvel at the side vents of steam.
According to the Mexican Media, the authorities are taking the risk of ash fall very seriously, but I am yet to see anything about whether this is
just a pressure release, or a prelude to something bigger, or possible evacuations.
Maybe if NASA just halved the speed they
are doing CME's at now. 1 sec to like 3 sec?
Whats the rush ?
I hear you. The problem with that is the enormous scales involved. Say a CME moves out at 1 million miles per hour. Thats fast for a CME.
It would take an hour for it to traverse the diameter of the disk of the sun. So when you watch it in real time, it looks like nothing is happening at
all. There are videos of that somewhere. You could get a telescope with a day filter and see for yourself. The sun is awesome to watch in any
As far as volcanoes go, they are a lot quicker. The one up top is only sped up a little bit. There is real time footage of others.
