August Complex fire & August Lightning Siege

Post by Jim Eshelman » Wed Oct 07, 2020 8:06 am

August 16, 2020, early morning (use 6 AM), 39N46, 122W40
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_Complex_fire
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_20 ... _wildfires

The August Complex fire is a record-breaking monster of a fire in Lake and Mendocino Counties and adjacent areas. It is the first single fire in California history to have burned over one million acres of land. Primarily it has burned within the Mendocino National Forest (which, however, is itself less than a million acres in size).

To date, estimated damages are $165.8 million, including the destruction of 200 buildings. Only one death has occurred (a firefighter).

Originally formed from 38 separate, smaller fires that had started from lightning strikes August 16-17. This is being discussed as its own event, given the title "August lightning siege."

Between August 30 and September 10, these merged. It isn't clear to me exactly when to "date" the fire, though we could study a timeline across the nearly one month of its formation. For now, I'm taking the original August 16 lightning strikes that began the feeder fires. The thunderstorms moved through the area beginning "early morning," starting fires as they went, with over a dozen started by 5 PM, so pinning down the "early morning" time is the goal. Since I can't find a time the first of these fires began, I'll use 6 AM as a working time. The coordinates are the Wikipedia coordinates for the merged fire, which presumably is a center of the activity.

A point of interest: I've been seeing a lot of these fire outbreaks with Moon halfway approximately between apogee and perigee. This is an astronomical condition known to impact precipitation and major storm patterns. It happened again with this one, being being about 10° from square her apogee-perigee axis (i.e., about halfway between them) and only a day or so past her node (passing through the sheet of the ecliptic plane). In this case, the fire was started by the weather patterns, but I'm suspecting there are also subtle electrical shifts when these phenomena occur.

The charts are generally quite good. The Cansolar nails it perfectly. The only active lunar ingress nails it almost perfectly. Things get flaky at the day (especially because we were in two months when the whole world had Moon-Jupiter and Moon-Venus progressions; but at least they apply to the storm), but transits to the Cansolar nail it, adding the almost invariable Mars for the day for a major fire.

It was from a thunderstorm! Only an angular Mars could make this better, but it isn't needed - another chart can provide that. This captures the devastation perfectly.

Pope supports Gay Marriage

Post by Jupiter Sets at Dawn » Wed Oct 21, 2020 3:49 pm

The Vatican released a new documentary today in which Pope Francis supported civil unions for gay people.

In 2013, he said "If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?" but today he said "homosexuals have a right to be a part of the family. They are children of God and have a right to a family," the pope said in an interview in the documentary Francesco, which premiered Wednesday at the Rome Film Festival. "What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they are legally covered."

Not Catholic, but I think this was a very big deal and a big change from the calls for gay marriage to be seen as illegal from previous popes.
