SIERRA CLUB — ORIONID METEOR SHOWER — LIGHTNING STRIKES — PLANET EARTH OUR HOME group

All PLANET EARTH groups supports:

Sierra Club* United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) * American Bird Conservancy

PLANET EARTH OUR HOME is our flagship group with over 12,000 members and over 807,000 photos and videos.

The Orionid Meteor Shower lights up the skies in October, with up to 25 meteors an hour at its peak, which extends from October 20 to 27. However, the best time to observe the show (the peak of the peak, as it were) is overnight from October 21 to 22. The bits of dust that ignite the atmospheric streaks producing the Orionids were left behind from Halley’s Comet. The radiant, or plane, from which the meteors appear to emanate, lies to the left of Orion’s reddish star Betelgeuse and close to the border of Gemini. Orionids are some of the fastest known meteors—if you blink, you might miss one. With the full moon falling earlier in the month, viewers should get to enjoy a relatively dark sky.  

For the second month in a row, the full moon falls on the 13th. The hunter’s moon in October will take place on a Sunday at 2:09 P.M. PDT, but it doesn’t rise until just after sunset. Look east to see the full moon ascending in the constellation Pisces. Some of the other, possibly more appropriate, names for October’s full moon are the blood moon or dying grass moon, which fit the Halloween and autumn season. Speaking of Halloween, those who are out trick-or-treating will hopefully be treated to a beautiful view as the sky grows dark—a crescent moon to the southwest, sitting next to Jupiter (the pair float almost 5 degrees apart on October 31) with a backdrop of the Milky Way.

GREENPEACE — NEW ZEALAND — KILLING OFF MAUI DOLPHINS — PLANET EARTH NIGHT LIGHTS group

PLANET EARTH NIGHT LIGHTS has over 1,000 members and over 21,000 photos and videos. 

GREENPEACE

The fishing industry has been killing off Māui dolphins for years, and their denials are now putting the entire New Zealand seafood export market at risk.

Industry spin doctors love to pitt economic prosperity against environmental protection. It’s a convenient but ultimately false dichotomy.

Maui petition handover at Parliament in Wellington

New Zealand’s seafood industry trails behind, desperately clutching old narratives and shifting the blame. The lobby group that represents them, Seafood NZ, is doing just this in their current aggressive advertising campaign, blaming cats for killing Māui.

BIRD CONSERVATION — Will Federal Policies Doom the Sage-Grouse to Extinction? — PLANET EARTH URBAN LANDSCAPES group

All PLANET EARTH groups supports:

Greenpeace * United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) * American Bird Conservancy

PLANET EARTH URBAN LANDSCAPES has 1,000 members and over 41,000 photos and videos.

Wildlife experts concluded in 2015 that the Greater Sage-Grouse, an iconic bird of the West, did not require listing under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), thanks to then-new federal management plans with added conservation requirements. Many conservation groups, including American Bird Conservancy, supported the monumental process leading up to these plansand the decision not to list this species under these circumstances.

As it turned out, had the beleaguered bird been listed in 2015, we wouldn’t now be watching years of effort to save the Greater Sage-Grouse be washed away almost overnight. The many promises to conserve the grouse and its habitat are now purposefully being abandoned as the federal agencies are on the verge of finalizing new plans that remove essential safeguards.
