Sir Richard Branson in Space astrology
Billionaire Sir Richard Branson successfully reached the edge of space on board his Virgin Galactic rocket plane July 11, 2021 taking off from Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. A name I’ve always loved named after an old daytime game show. Branson and a small crew flew 90Km into space for about an hour. The project took 17 years to complete. He beat competing Billionaire Jeff Bezos of Amazon for being the first in the new tourist space business.

RICHARD BRANSON born July 18 1950, 7:00 am Blackheath, England
Mr Branson in Space, Transits – July 11, 2021.
CANCER SUN in the 12th House is a karmic aspect and can be an angel of protection on his shoulder, Richard’s sun is ruled by the MOON in VIRGO in his 1st house opposite lucky Jupiter in PISCES in his 7th house
Mars and Venus meet on his14 degree LEO Pluto AC,
This delicious aspect certainly played a part in the joy ride. MARS in LEO on the AC is usually a dangerous aspect of explosions, and high risk which it was. But it all went totally fine.
Uranus on his MC at 12 TAURUS squares his Natal AC-
URANUS the planet of inventions, breaking through old barriers, space, revolutions, science, and higher consciousness.
Pluto at 25 degrees CAPRICORN in his natal 6th house of work and service is exactly opposite to his 25 degree CANCER Sun in his 12th HOUSE. Richard is naturally very emotional sensitive nurturing and giving. This could have been a classic death aspect yet it is going to make him even more super wealthy. Richard is doing his soul’s work and Pluto will reward him.
Progressions – MC conjunct Uranus-
Moon in 9th opposite Neptune/Mars-
Sun conj Super Galactic Centre- a big one for luck and space travel
Solar Arc – Pluto IC opposite Eris-could be trouble.
Jupiter conjunct transit Uranus
Big EXPANSIVE hAPPY space travel

Lucky observers will likely catch a very brief outburst of alpha Monocerotid meteors this Thursday night (or Friday morning). Astronomers say the meteors will fall at a rate of 400 meteors per hour at the peak, or several meteors per minute. The key is … you’ve got to be at the right place, at exactly the right time.via Will you see this week’s meteor outburst?
“2007 OR10’s orbit places it in the Kuiper belt, the sea of icy planetesimals that orbit beyond Neptune. Over 3000 Kuiper belt objects (KBOs) are known to date. 2007 OR10 resides on an elliptical orbit. It makes its closest approach to the Sun at 33 au (1 au is the mean distance between the Earth and Sun), and its furthest point from the Sun is at a distance of 101 au. 2007 OR10 has a typical orbit of a scattered disk Kuiper belt object, one that was emplaced into the Kuiper belt during the migration of our Solar System’s giant planets, including Neptune, through gravitational scattering.”

How did these rocks get so red? The answer involves iron, which bonds with other elements to form minerals famous for their red, rusty hue.
To start at the beginning, the iron on Earth came from ancient supernova events, the collapse of large stars that ran out of energy and “died.” After these stars collapsed (due to extreme gravity at their centers), they released a vast amount of new energy, which fused together elements, creating heavier elements, including iron (Fe).
After the force from such a collapse got too immense, the collapsing star exploded outward, sending the elements into space, said Jessica Kapp, a senior lecturer and associate department head of the geosciences department at the University of Arizona. [Photo Timeline: How the Earth Formed]
“When Earth first formed, it grabbed up a bunch of these elements from the space around it, including iron,” Kapp told Live Science in an email.
In Earth’s early history, during the Archean era (4 billion to 2.5 billion years ago), there was little oxygen in the atmosphere. Without oxygen, iron can dissolve in water, and so Earth’s early Archean oceans carried large amounts of dissolved iron, said Terry Engelder, a professor of geosciences at Pennsylvania State University.
However, single-celled organisms began producing oxygen through photosynthesis — a process that uses sunlight to power a reaction between water and carbon dioxide, leading to the creation of carbohydrates and oxygen.
That oxygen got into the oceans and bonded with the iron, leading to the creation of iron-oxide minerals, such as hematite (Fe2O3), which is often red in color, and magnetite (Fe3O4).
“An oxidation reaction you might be familiar with is rusting — when metal reacts with the oxygen in the air and becomes rust,” Kapp said. “In rocks, it is little grains of minerals like hematite and magnetite that have iron in them. Those minerals experience oxidation and become rust, turning the rocks red.”
The creation of these minerals led to the formation of the banded iron formations, the most important iron deposits in the world, Engelder said. The formations are “banded” because they contain layers of hematite between layers of silica, which were laid down as sedimentary rock layers during the during the late Archean to mid-Proterozoic (an era lasting from 2.5 billion to 541 million years ago), according to a 2016 study in the journal Geoscience Frontiers.
For instance, banded iron formations appear in Carajas, Brazil; Lake Superior, Canada; Hamersley Basin, Western Australia; regions in northern China; and the Mesabi Iron Range in Minnesota.
In the case of the Vermilion Cliffs in Arizona, the red color comes from iron-rich minerals that are interspersed with the sedimentary rock at that site.
“Red sandstones are very common in the western United States,” Kapp said. “[They] can be found in places like Sedona, Arizona, and in the Mojave Desert of California at Red Rock Canyon State Park.”
Other red rock formations that contain oxidized iron minerals include the Chugwater Formation in Wyoming, Montana and Colorado and the Redwall Limestone cliff of the Grand Canyon, which was stained red by the iron-oxide minerals leaching out from the layers above it.
