Astronauts on board the International Space Station captured otherworldly photos of the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, Tuesday night.
Severe weather that forced the cancellation of blood drives across the country has the American Red Cross issuing an urgent request for blood and platelet donors, Red Cross officials said.
NASA is launching a fleet of spacecraft Thursday to investigate the mystery behind a cosmic phenomenon in the Earth’s magnetic field just as the sun unleashed its first massive flare of the year.
It’s official. Winter has been cancelled and we are catapulting over Spring and entering Summer. I must admit, for the first time this “Winter” season, my hopes are dashed. I am putting away my coats, storing my sweaters and packing up my rain boots. My “cold weather running gear” was never used this Winter.
Mother Nature set the stage for a spectacular stormy performance Saturday night complete with hail, lightning and double rainbows just as the sun was going down.
The stormy weather moved through leaving kids in San Jose hail deep enough to sled on. Others built a snowman!
The Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar resorts just north of Lake Tahoe reported 16-17 inches of new snow.

The Bay Area is about to get hit with the season’s last round of high seas known as the “King Tides.”
After four days of rainfall, the San Francisco Bay Area has seen SOME relief to some areas, while other regions remain in “EXTREME to EXCEPTIONAL Drought. Over a foot of rain accumulated in Venado (12 miles west of Healdsburg) and as a result, the coastal mountains are now considered in a “Severe Drought”, not as dismal as the remaining Bay Area. In fact, many interior valleys received less than 1 inch of precipitation in the rain gauge and the Salinas Valley tallied less than 1/2 inch from the Friday through Monday rain event. Not nearly enough to note markedly improved conditions there.
