Every two weeks, we publish a new issue of our tablet and computer-friendly eMag, OWLconnected. It's free for OWL magazine subscribers.
Issue 161 is focused on World Meteorological Day, which is today!
What is this day, exactly? If you guessed that it's about tracking meteors, that's a good guess, but not correct. Instead, a meteorologist is someone who tracks weather, climate, and all of the interesting things that are happening between our atmosphere, land masses, and bodies of water. You could say that they monitor the health and even mood of our planet from day to day.
Pretty cool, right?
Weather or not
Meteorology is a field of study that leads scientists to encounter some really curious phenomena. Especially different storms.
So for our feature story in this eMag, we're looking deep into weird, extreme weather. Get ready to encounter red lightning, whirlwinds of water, and so much more. Earth's weather is a lot more than just sunny skies or gentle rainfalls. Prepare to be blown away!
And we've got even more excitement in the forecast for Issue 161. Do you like quizzes? Because this issue has two! One on weather, the other on mathematics. Then, to expand on that equation even further, we've included a video about one of math's most important and strangest numbers: Pi!
Then there's an array of brain-testing puzzles, perfect for a rainy spring day (this season tends to have a few of those!). As always, this issue ends with the Buzz section, full of thoughts from fellow readers like you. What a fun issue!
