Air quality update: The status of the Eagle Bluff wildfire remains the same at 2,632 hectares. Crews postponed a planned ignition yesterday due to rain making fuels too difficult to burn. An ignition may be conducted sometime today to contain the perimeter of the fire, BC Wildfire says.
There are currently 37 active fires in the province (seven started in the last seven days) according to the B.C. Wildfire Dashboard.
UPDATE: 147 #BCWildfire firefighters made progress on the #EagleBluff wildfire today. 47 personnel will continue to respond overnight. Updates on the postponed planned ignition will be provided once conditions are reevaluated in the morning. More info: https://t.co/3ngFWJxBX3 pic.twitter.com/ztFtkG9q04

Your extraterrestrial weather report:
Ever wonder what the weather is like on Jupiter? NASA recently used the Hubble Telescope to capture some new, vibrant shots of the planet’s rotation, putting the images together in a time-lapse.

Suffice to say, today’s weather on Jupiter looks… a bit stormy.
