Dodging the Roadkill: The Sturgis Chronicles – Part 5

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – It had been a long hot day for us when we landed in Rapid City. Black Hills Harley Davidson was an absolute CIRCUS!  It was the first indication of the crowds that were to dominate the week at the rally.

I had become separated from my guys somewhere at the dealership and they were wanting to spend more time there than me, so I got back on my bike and punched up the address for the Iron Horse Inn.

I arrived at about 2:30 and even though the reservations weren’t in my name, I had proof of my payment so they allowed me to check in.

NASA’s AIRS instrument Maps Carbon Monoxide from Amazon Fires

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA’s Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument, aboard the Aqua satellite, has produced new data that shows the movement high in the atmosphere of carbon monoxide associated with fires in the Amazon region of Brazil.

This time series maps carbon monoxide at an altitude of 18,000 feet (5,500 meters) from August 8th-22nd, 2019. As the series progresses, the carbon monoxide plume grows in the northwest Amazon region then drifts in a more concentrated plume toward the southeastern part of the country.
