Israel Termed A 'Nuclear Power' By US Officials
In the last two weeks, two non-senior US officials indirectly called on Israel to start planning on cancelling its nuclear weapons programs. Even though they said this is not intended for 'the foreseeable future', their publicly terming Israel a nuclear power on a par with India and Pakistan might be a sign that the US perceives of nuclear issues as too serious to condone the double standards it employs freely on other issues.

Spectacular Light Show Available in the US From 3 P.M. PST: The Gemenids Meteor Shower Will be Broadcast from Israel via the Internet on December 13,


Fountain Valley, CA (PRWEB) December 13, 2006 --- A new, spectacular meteor observing & detection service, will be available, at no cost, to anyone in the world with an internet connection. Everyone can participate in this spectacular multi-viewer broadcast of the most spectacular meteor shower of the year. Weather permitting, the Gemenids meteor shower will be captured live from Israel from 3 pm until 6 pm PT on December 13, 2006.

Interested viewers only need to log into the website to join in the action. The Gemenid's meteor shower multi-viewer broadcast will be captured with a super highly sensitivity CCDTV camera that is about 100X more sensitive than the human eye. The camera and its special widefield optical system will be located at the top of Bareket observatory's dome, http://www.bareket-astro.com in Israel, where it will be possible to watch the meteor shower in the most optimal way through the internet.

This unique arrangement will enable viewers to watch the meteor shower without even leaving their home, school or office - in the middle of the U.S day light time.

What are meteor showers?

As comets orbit the Sun, the meteors shed an icy, dusty debris stream along the comet's orbit. If Earth travels through this dusty stream, we will witness a meteor shower.

Depending on where Earth and the stream meet, meteors appear to fall from a particular place in the sky, at the area of one constellation.
This is a spot in the sky astronomers call - the radiant.

We expect to see at least 60 meteors in one hour, although optimistic estimates predicate about 120 per hour, or more.

The highly sensitive camera and lens will be able to expose to the viewer much fainter meteors than will be possibly detect with the unaided eye. It is very possible that the optimistic scenario will be doubled and even tripled with the assistance of the observatory's special system.

This special broadcast is part of Bareket observatory educational activities, along with their Mars remote control robot, live earth dial, virtual telescope, astronomical remote labs and more?

For those that would like to actively participate, it is highly recommended that viewers sketch the meteors and send their documents to the IMO (international meteors organization).

This is a great opportunity to be a part of real astronomical science - without leaving the couch.
