Bus-Sized Asteroid flew between Earth and the moon on Thursday night, February 2, 2017, just days after it’s discovery. Asteroid 2017 BS32 is 36 t0 82 feet wide (11 and 25 meters) and passed us at approximately 101,000 miles (161, 280 km). This is the fourth close shave this year.
FLIGHT ATTENDANTS TRAIN TO SPOT HUMAN TRAFFICKING
A flight attendant aboard an Alaska Air flight from Seattle to San Francisco spotted something strange when she saw a disheveled teenage girl traveling with a well dressed older man. The contrast set off alarm bells in her head. She also noticed that the man was defensive as she tried engaged them in conversation. After a clever note exchange between her and the girl, she found that the girl needed help.
The flight attendant called the pilot and informed them of situation, the police were notified and were waiting at the terminal.
This is a prime example of Airline Ambassadors and how they work. Airline Ambassadors instills in airline staff across the nation how to spot the signs of human trafficking.
Since 2009, Airline Ambassadors have worked with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
PENUMBRAL ECLIPSE February 10, 2017
On February 10, 2017 the full moon might look a tad bit darker than the typical full moon, the reason is because it will pass through Earth’s faint penumbral shadow for a portion of the night. It is called a Penumbral Eclipse, which will be easily viewed after sunset of February 10th, from the eastern portion of North and South America.
