APOD: A Roll Cloud Over Uruguay (2013 Jun 02) Credit & Licence: Daniela Mirner Eberl http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130602.html Explanation: What kind of cloud is this? A roll cloud. These rare long clouds may form near advancing cold fronts. In particular, a downdraft from an advancing storm front can cause moist warm air to rise, cool below its dew point, and so form a cloud. When this happens uniformly along an extended front, a roll cloud may form. Roll clouds may actually have air circulating along the long horizontal axis of the cloud. A roll cloud is not thought to be able to morph into a tornado. Unlike a similar shelf cloud, a roll cloud, a type of Arcus cloud, is completely detached from their parent cumulonimbus cloud. Pictured above, a roll cloud extends far into the distance in 2009 January above Las Olas Beach in Maldonado, Uruguay. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Roll-cloud.JPG Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130602 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0602

APOD: The Milky Trail (2013 Jun 01) Image Credit & Copyright: Wally Pacholka (AstroPics.com, TWAN) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130601.html Explanation: Have you ever hiked the Queen's Garden trail in Bryce Canyon, Utah, USA, planet Earth? Walking along that path in this dark night skyscape, you can almost imagine your journey continues along the pale, luminous Milky Way. Of course, the name for our galaxy, the Milky Way (in Latin, Via Lactea), does refer to its appearance as a milky band or path in the sky. In fact, the word galaxy itself derives from the Greek for milk. Visible on moonless nights from dark sky areas, though not so bright or quite so colorful as in this image, the glowing celestial band is due to the collective light of myriad stars along the plane of our galaxy, too faint to be distinguished individually. The diffuse starlight is cut by dark swaths of obscuring galactic dust clouds. Four hundred years ago, Galileo turned his telescope on the Milky Way and announced it to be "... a congeries of innumerable stars ..." http://twanight.org/pacholka http://astropics.com/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130601 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0601
