This is a video capturing the huge fireball which many people saw light up the Donegal skyline on Sunday night.Dozens of people have contacted us to say they witnessed the mystery object trailing across the sky just after 10pm. The fireball, which lasted about five seconds, was spotted by a number of people including Letterkenny man Cathal McDaid and well-known chef Martin Anderson.This particular clip, uploaded to Youtube by the UK Meteor Observation Network, shows the massive dash of light fly across the sky at Portadown, Co Armagh.Fireballs are caused when a large rock from space burns up in the atmosphere as it collides with Earth at speeds of the order of 100,000 mph.David Moore from Astronomy Ireland said: “This event was so bright that a piece or pieces may have survived the re-entry and landed as extremely rare and valuable meteorites. “We are appealing to everyone who saw the fireball to fill in to online report form on Astronomy Ireland’s website ‘astronomy.ie’ as soon as possible while the details are fresh in their minds. In return we will send everyone our analysis of all the reports and where we think any meteorite may have landed.”Astronomy Ireland are appealing to any companies who operate CCTV cameras to check their recordings for Sunday night around 10:10pm to see if they recorded the fireball near the horizon as photographic records like this are extremely valuable.* Have you a video clip of the fireball above the skyline over Donegal on Sunday night?

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest In response to customer and partner input, USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) recently announced a significant update to the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP), the nation’s largest conservation program by acreage. Beginning with the new enrollment period planned later this year, the updated CSP will leverage redesigned planning and evaluation tools and an expanded array of new enhancements to provide conservation-minded producers with more options to improve conditions on working lands.“We are reworking the program to make it easier to understand not only from the producer standpoint, but also for our field staff,” said Mark Rose, Director of Financial Assistance Programs Division for USDA-NRCS. “We’ve tied the enhancements more directly with the conservation practices that the producer may already be implementing or could implement.”These changes will make it easier for NRCS to describe to producers what outcomes are going to be, which was a bit of a challenge with the prior program.“The new CSP is designed to have a producer address resource concerns and once those are addressed for their farm they can come in and look at the whole operation and add CSP to it to bring it up,” Rose said. “We have five-year contracts in the first round and after that producers can come back and offer up a renewal for five years for a total of 10 years.”CSP will offer nearly double the enhancements and conservation practice opportunities as before, taking advantage of emerging trends and conservation practices to be more responsive to producers’ goals and capabilities. For example, CSP will offer producers four new enhancements that utilize gypsum as a soil amendment, which has been shown to improve water quality by reducing dissolved phosphorus and reducing the potential for pathogens to reach ground and surface water from manure.“By tying the enhancements to the practices it will be much easier to see the possibilities and it will offer a wider suite of enhancements to go with that practice to bring it up,” Rose said. “It is going to be very beneficial for the farm and very beneficial to conservation.”CSP will also offer support in the production of biochar following fuel reduction harvests or wildfires, which an NRCS-funded Conservation Innovation Grant shows can reduce debris while increasing soil organic matter and water-holding capacity. NRCS will also offer enhancements for on-site carbon storage and planting for high carbon sequestration rate, while expanding on investments in monarch habitat improvement by supporting the establishment of habitat in pastures.CSP is for producers who are already established conservation stewards, helping them to deliver multiple conservation benefits on working lands, including improved water and soil quality and enhanced wildlife habitat.NRCS will provide more information about the new program, including funding opportunities for the Fiscal Year 2017 enrollment period, later this year. Producers interested in the program can find at more at www.nrcs.usda.gov/cspor visit their local USDA Service Center.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ben Klick, Stark CountyAs long as everything goes as planned, today will be our last day of harvest. I have 55 acres of beans to cut and we are done. We are beyond ready for it to be done. It has been a roller coaster of a year and a downhill roller coaster of a fall. We are not that upset with how the yields turned out after the weather we had but there have been little issues with things going wrong along the way and we are definitely ready to be done.Planting date was very crucial this year. The later crops were not nearly as dry and that was a lot more money in drying costs. There was quite a bit of re-adjusting the machine from the early corn to the late-planted corn and it slowed down the harvest.The double-crop beans needed August and September rains that they didn’t get. The yields were all over the place. They got planted later than they should have been and it got dry for them at the wrong time. This year they weren’t really worth cutting.The corn yields really varied by farm and soil type. We planted some fields that we should have waited a day or two longer last spring but we had to plant when we could. As a young farmer I see things I get stressed about but then my dad tells me that he has been seeing these kinds of things for years.The ground is not as favorable as I thought it would be but we are getting the weather so we can start the fall jobs that we should have been doing a month ago. We have chicken litter to spread, lime to spread and barns to clean out.We usually shoot to be done two weeks before Thanksgiving, and here we are still working at harvest the week after Thanksgiving, but we were still blessed with a pretty good harvest and nothing disastrous went wrong. It is what it is.For the rest of this week’s reports, click here.

INLD Secretary General Ajay Singh Chautala invited former MPs, MLAs and other office-bearers on Monday for a meeting in Jind on November 17. Mr. Chautala sent a letter, which does not mention any agenda of the meeting and states that “an invitation is hereby given for the Haryana State Body meeting of the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD)”. “All the State body office bearers/members, special invitees, executive members, sitting and former MPs and MLAs, presidents of the district units, State presidents and district conveners of all the Cells of the party and its bodies may kindly make it convenient to attend the State body general meeting,” wrote Mr. Chautala, who is also a former MP. The letter, inviting various party functionaries for the Jind meet, comes in the midst of a widening rift in the Chautala family. When asked if any important decision was likely to be taken by him in the meeting on November 17, Mr. Chautala told reporters in Delhi on Monday that “all colleagues will sit and decide”. In an apparent bid to arrest the widening rift, Ajay Singh Chautala and his younger brother Abhay Singh Chautala, who is Leader of Opposition in the Haryana Assembly, had a meeting in Delhi on Sunday. To a question, Ajay Singh Chautala did not rule out more meetings with his younger brother in the coming days in a bid to put an end to the widening rift, saying, “he is dear to me, we will meet everyday”. He indicated that he was likely to meet former Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal in Chandigarh this week. While Ajay Singh Chautala’s son Digvijay Chautala had on Sunday ruled out the possibility of any mediation by the Akali Dal patriarch to arrest the feud within the INLD and Chautala family. On Saturday, Hisar MP Dushyant Chautala had refused to accept his expulsion and that of his brother Digvijay Chautala from the INLD, claiming that the party’s national executive had not met.
