Halloween 2018

This pic was taken by a client named Courtney who never turned the
camera at an angle. The geometry of life is mastering the angles of reality.

When the world is turning upside down, try to keep your balance.

Relax ... Take a slow deep breath ... Then move forward ...

We found a small round table with two real pumpkins in the gazebo.

Happy Halloween from Ellie, Courtney, and my neighbor's dog Carlo who we met along the way.

The Spirit of Halloween

Spirits generally come to my readings but I never know who is going to show up so I make no promises beforehand. Yesterday was Halloween, often associated with Spirits. Courtney is 30, lives in NJ,, is married and thinking about having a baby. Today she emailed:

Halloween in Space

Hubble reveals a giant cosmic 'Bat Shadow'   PhysOrg - October 31, 2018

Shadows on Earth can be mysterious and foreboding, but when they occur in space, they can convey information we otherwise could not know. In a stellar nursery called the Serpens Nebula, nearly 1,300 light-years away, a young star's game of shadow play is revealing secrets of its unseen planet-forming disk. The near-infrared vision of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured the shadow cast by the fledgling star's brilliant light being blocked by this disk. Named HBC 672, this Sun-like star is surrounded by a debris ring of dust, rock, and ice - a disk that is too small and too distant to be seen, even by Hubble. But like a little fly that wanders into the beam of a flashlight shining on a wall, its shadow is projected large upon the cloud in which it was born. In this Hubble image, the feature - nicknamed the "Bat Shadow" - spans approximately 200 times the length of our solar system. It is visible in the upper right portion of the picture.

To get in the spirit for halloween, the European Southern Observatory has released a new image of the Skull and Crossbones nebula, also known as NGC 2467. Astronomers captured this view using an instrument on the Very Large Telescope array known as the Focal Reducer and low dispersion Spectrograph. - Hanneke Weitering Video reveals spooky new view of Cassiopeia's decaying double

The Ghost of Cassiopeia   PhysOrg October 25, 2018

About 550 light-years away in the constellation of Cassiopeia lies IC 63, a stunning and slightly eerie nebula. Also known as the ghost of Cassiopeia, IC 63 is being shaped by radiation from a nearby unpredictably variable star, Gamma Cassiopeiae, which is slowly eroding away the ghostly cloud of dust and gas. This celestial ghost makes the perfect backdrop for the upcoming feast of All Hallow's Eve - better known as Halloween.

R Leporis: A Vampire's Star

Better known as Hind's Crimson Star, R Leporis is a rare star in planet Earth's night sky. It's also a shocking shade of red. The star's discoverer, 19th century English astronomer John Russell Hind, reported that it appeared in a telescope "... like a drop of blood on a black field."

Much to my surprise it turned into a Full Heart Moon.

What away to start the day.
