Coronavirus has spread to sub-Saharan Africa for the first time as stock market losses around the world deepened amid investor alarm over a potential global pandemic.

Nigeria’s health minister, Osagie Ehanire, said the first case in the region was an Italian citizen who worked in Nigeria and had returned from Italy to Lagos on 25 February. “The patient is clinically stable, with no serious symptoms, and is being managed at the Infectious Disease Hospital in Yaba, Lagos,” Ehanire said.

The mass -- roughly 1.9-3.5 meters (6-11 feet) in diameter -- was observed by researchers Kacper Wierzchos and Teddy Pruyne at the NASA-funded Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona on the night of February 15. The astronomer said it was a "big deal" as "this is just the second asteroid known to orbit Earth (after 2006 RH120, which was also discovered by the Catalina Sky Survey)."

"FebruBURIED:" Popular destination has measured more than 300 inches of snow this winter! https://news.yahoo.com/februburied-popular-destination-measured-more-234735214.html " Popular destination has measured more than 300 inches of snow this winter!Much has been made of some of the snow droughts underway in what is stacking up as a historically mild winter throughout the contiguous United States. Places along the Eastern Seaboard, like Washington, D.C., Philly and New York City, have seen well below-average snow totals that typically accumulate by this point of the year.But one place that is experiencing no-such drought is situated in the middle of the country and it just passed a major snowfall milestone after a month in, which it saw record snowfall pile up.One of Colorado's most popular ski destinations just became the snowiest in the state, which will be a boon for the resort throughout the spring.On Sunday, a storm covered the Colorado Rockies with a fresh blanket of snow and sent Breckenridge Resort over the 300-inch mark on the season. Breckinridge was the first resort in the state to surpass the 300-inch benchmark, having eclipsed it just two days before Steamboat Resort hit the mark.Not only did the recent storm cause Breckenridge to eclipse the 300-inch mark, but it also added to the resort's record-setting snowfall in February. A skier being pulled down Main Street by a bicycle waves to fans during Ullr Fest honoring the Nordic God of Snow Thursday, Dec. 12, 2019, in Breckenridge, Colo. (AP Photo/Jack Dempsey) On Thursday, Breckenridge Resort said on Twitter that it had measured more than 119 inches of snow this month alone, far surpassing the previous record for the snowiest February of 85 inches. This triple-digit snow total is also more than double the typical February snowfall in Breckenridge, which is 50 inches, Summit Daily reported.The resort's social media team has joked that the month should be renamed "FebruBURIED" due to the incredible record snowfall.> 110" in FebruBURIED alone = Trench Town ⛏ Breck powder pic.twitter.com/EofetHIJnm> > -- Breckenridge Resort (@breckenridgemtn) February 24, 2020The storm that sent Breckenridge over 300 inches on the season was just one in a long line of snowstorms to hit the Colorado Rockies this season."We've had a persistent storm track from the Pacific, down through the Rockies and down into the southern Plains," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Bowers said. "It's just been one [storm] after another, essentially all winter long.""What has been remarkable about it is its persistence. It's not a pattern that's been real common for a long period of time," Bowers added.CLICK HERE FOR THE FREE ACCUWEATHER APPThe snowy pattern responsible for the record-setting snowfall is forecast to carry over right into March, keeping to weather lore that the month ‘comes in like a lion.'"I would think that the storms will keep coming to Colorado over the next couple of weeks," Bowers said.AccuWeather Expert Long-Range Meteorologist predicted this pattern weeks ago when AccuWeather's spring forecast was released. "They've had a busy central Rockies ski season this year, and I think that will continue to be the case into spring," Pastelok said.The continuous rounds of snow may draw in skiers elsewhere across the country that are experiencing a lack of snow this winter.Although the winter started off strong in California, a long spell of dry weather has caused the state's snowpack to run well below normal. Unless there is a major shift in the weather pattern, ski resorts across the state may end up closing a bit earlier than recent years when snow was bountiful."Right now, 2020 is on track to be a below-average year, but we could still see large storms in March and April that will improve the current snowpack," said Sean de Guzman, chief of Department of Water Resource's Snow Surveys and Water Supply Forecasting Section.Ski resorts on the opposite side of the country are also seeing a lack of snow, but for a different reason."The same pattern [responsible for snow in the Rockies] has led to more rain in the eastern U.S. rather than snow," Bowers said. "There have hardly been any nor'easters."Skiers and snowboarders in these corners of the country have plenty of time to head to Colorado to enjoy the plethora of snow for themselves. Breckenridge Resort is planning to keep their slopes open through Memorial Day weekend, in part thanks to Mother Nature.Keep checking back on AccuWeather.com and stay tuned to the AccuWeather Network on DirecTV, Frontier and Verizon Fios.

Astronomers begin to unravel a new mystery held in a 'cocoon galaxy' https://news.yahoo.com/astronomers-begin-unravel-mystery-held-224355088.html Astronomers begin to unravel a new mystery held in a 'cocoon galaxy'Seven years ago, then 70-year-old Allen Lawrence had just begun studying a system where two galaxies, NGC 4485 and NGC 4490, were -- and still are -- in the process of interacting with each other.Lawrence had first enrolled in astronomy courses at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2011 after retiring from a career as an electrical engineer. He announced in a statement released by Iowa State that this was around the time he made a connection that astronomers before him hadn't.Through using an optical telescope, a radio telescope and then comparing two different images taken, Lawerence discovered the NGC 4490 galaxy had a double nucleus, or two centers."I saw the double nucleus about seven years ago," Lawrence said. "It had never been observed -- or nobody had ever done anything with it before."A news release from Iowa State said that while some astronomers may have seen one nucleus with their optical telescopes and others may have seen the other with their radio telescopes, the two groups hadn't compared notes.After earning a master's degree in astronomy from Iowa State in 2018, Lawrence and his co-workers submitted a paper on the discovery, which was accepted for publication by the Astrophysical Journal. Lawrence is the first author listed in the paper.> Allen Lawrence, who received his master's degree in astrophysics in his 70's, is the first author of a paper revealing...> > Posted by Iowa State University - College of Liberal Arts and Sciences on Friday, February 7, 2020The two nuclei are comparable in mass and luminosity to the nuclei observed in other interacting galaxy pairs, the paper says. However, it's still unclear what makes up the nuclei."It sends out so much energy it can't be singular stars," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist David Samuhel said. "It could be debris from a black hole. Or all the debris circling around a black hole, trapped by it. This 'stuff' is super bright on the electromagnetic spectrum, which covers everything from visible light to radio waves, x-rays and gamma rays."Samuhel added that it's very unusual for a galaxy to have two nuclei, or two centers.For the Milky Way galaxy, its center, its nucleus, is a supermassive black hole about 4 million times the mass of our sun, according to NASA.The Andromeda galaxy, the only galaxy other than the Milky Way that is visible to the naked eye, has a nucleus that gives the illusion of a double nucleus. At the center of the galaxy is an elliptical ring of red and blue stars in orbit around a black hole. At their farthest point in their orbit, the stars move more slowly, creating the double nucleus illusion, according to NASA. The NGC 4485 galaxy is the smaller of the two that make up the Arp 269 system. (ESA/Hubble, NASA) The galaxies NGC 4490 and NGC 4485 once collided with each other, warping their structures, but ultimately, both survived the encounter.The one side of the smaller galaxy, NGC 4485, still appears intact, its shape somewhat still resembling a spiral formation. But the other side consists of a burst of newborn stars and clouds of dust trailing off to the NGC 4490 galaxy.NGC 4490 was once a barred spiral shape, much like the Milky Way. Its shape has now warped into a more cocoon shape, earning it the nickname the "Cocoon Galaxy." With its intense star formation rate observed, the galaxy is considered a starburst galaxy. Galaxy NGC 4490, or the Cocoon galaxy, once collided with galaxy 4485, the two galaxies passing through each other. Lawrence found the double nucleus in the Cocoon galaxy (WikimediaCommons/Jschulman555) The full system, called Arp 269, is about 20% the size of the Milky Way. It can be seen in the Northern Hemisphere and is located about 25 million light years away from earth in the Canes Venatici constellation.The constellation represents the hunting dogs of the neighboring constellation, Boötes the Herdsman. The two dogs are named Asterion and Chara.
