The International Astronomical Union and the Minor PLanet Center is asking the public to vote on the name for 2007 OR10 a Kuiper Belt Object which orbits way out past Pluto and dwarf planet Eris.

“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.”

Why are the red rocks of Sedona so red?

If you’ve ever visited Sedona Arizona’s famous red rocks or seen the Grand Canyon, or the Vermillion Cliffs or the astonishingly rainbow-colored hills of China’s Zhangye National Geopark, you likely noticed they have one thing in common: red-colored rocks.

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.

Heart-Shaped Sunspot Fires Off Powerful Flare (Video)

A huge, heart-shaped sunspot shot off a strong solar flare Sunday evening (April 17), temporarily disrupting radio communications here on Earth.

 If you are feeling exhausted it is because of this solar heart burn. These solar flares always affect the electro-magnetic energy of the earth.  We are also magnetic beings. As an empath I tend to get very tired and dizzy when these solar flares happen. All sensitive people feel them but now you know why. They also create earthquakes. Sending prayers to the people in Ecuador and Japan affected by the recent quakes.

6th sense,comets,meteorites,Cosmic MESSENGERS, Pope less Astrology from Tara Greene

Meteorites and comets, there will be a  huge bright comet in the fall of 2013.

All of these outer space rocks are symbolic harbingers and prophets that were mentioned by the Hopi.

Comets always coincided with major changes in POWER and we are POPE LESS right now.

Bright naked eye comet Bright Comet Pan-Starrs (C/2011 L4) visible in Australia now

March 4, 2013 – SPACE – Bright Comet Pan-Starrs (C/2011 L4) is now inside the orbit of Mercury, brightening as it plunges toward the sun. Observers in the southern hemisphere report say they can see Pan-STARRS with the unaided eye in the evening sunset sky. Carl Gruber photographed the comet on March 2nd over the city lights of Melbourne, Australia: “Despite bad light and smog pollution, the comet’s nucleus was clearly visible to the naked eye as well as a small part of the tail,” says Gruber. Light curves show the comet is approaching 2nd magnitude, about as bright as the stars of the Big Dipper. Several important dates are approaching. On March 5th, Comet Pan-STARRS makes its closest approach to Earth (1.09 AU), followed on March 10th by its closest approach to the sun (0.3 AU). As Comet Pan-STARRS passes the sun, solar glare will make it difficult to see even as the nucleus vaporizes and brightens. By March 12th and 13th, the comet will reappear in the sunset skies of the northern hemisphere not far from the crescent Moon. –Space Weather

The comet will cross into Northern Latitudes around March 12 and will be visible early in the am. 

Walking my dog last night  in Toronto, I saw Jupiter directly in line with Aldebraran Michael’s Fixed Star, the bull’s eye. Jupiter is in Sidereal Taurus but Tropical Gemini.  That’s what I miss the most about not living in Arizona or even being up in Northern Ontario, seeing the Milky Way overhead, clothing the black night sky with a cloak of diamonds.

Something is definitely up, the universe is in a  synchonous reverberation with us, throwing pebbles at us to get our attention.

With this  very rare 6 planets PISCES alignment, the COSMIC MESSAGE is to USE your 6th sense

TELEPATHY ! HUNCHES! INTUITION! DREAMS !

Communing in ONENESS, healing, compassion, forgiveness, knowing that we are intrinsically interconnected to the Universe.

 We are made up of star dust,  the iron in our blood came from deep space explosions, We are the stars.

All the PISCES energy is a cosmic baptism. Aren’t you feeling WOOZY?

I felt  tipsy today, I know that ‘s the magnetic energy of the earth shifting, and higher frequency energies tuning in. I felt the angels,  the presence of the TALL BEINGS OF LIGHT as Stuart Wilde calls them. They’re about 10 feet tall,have long white wings,and speak telepathically, they are very peaceful, solemn and bring a feeling of grace. 

WHERE are those 6 cosmic tuning forks aligning in your natal chart? IN what house and making what kind of aspects?

A client of mine had 4 planets in Virgo in the 11th house. She was asking about relationships. The Pisces overflow energies were directly opposite her SUN MOON VENUS MERCURY in the 5th house traditionally known for LOVE AFFAIRS, children, creative self- expression, will , giving love, leadership. A  LEO patina overlays every 5th house irregardless of what sign is on the cusp or inside of it.

WHERE are those 6 cosmic tuning forks aligning in your natal chart? IN what house and making what kind of aspects?

How are 6 Pisces planets exploding your 6th sense?  Your personal communion with SOURCE

RIP Neil Armstrong, Astrology of a Moon Walker from Tara Greene

Neil Armstrong the first man to walk on the Moon, a man whose footprint on the lunar surface, literally, may be long in surpassing, has passed away Aug 25 2012 at 82. He has transitted from Moon walker to true Sky Walker, Star Walker, stuff of legends.

“That’s one small step for man, a giant leap for mankind” the whole world, or as many televisions or radios sets as could receive the signal from space that July 21 1969 was watching. An estimated 450 million people were listening.

So how were the stars aligned when Neil Armstrong was born? Lets look at his Astrology.

Are there indicators of a man who would go down in history ? Born August 5 1930 at 12:31 am in Wapakoneta Ohio.

Neil Armstron Astrology by Tara Greene

click on chart for larger view

YES I would say Neil definitely signed on to being a legend being  a LEO, he was a natural HERO and leader, fond of being the center of attention, one who likes the drama of being on the worlds’ stage is certainly a quality one would need to accomplish such a task.

The Moon at 25 degrees of SAGITTARIUS is conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER showing him to be a man who aims higher, seeks freedom, knowledge, wants to understand purpose and philosophy, the higher truth is what his Moon signifies. The G.C. Moon confers a special connection to GALACTIC Source energy. Literally it is an emotional yearning to return to the mother, source, the Unconscious, outer space.

GEMINI ASCENDANT

and Mars at 14 degrees Gemini in the 1st house shows Neil’ s “fly boy” persona. Charming, curious, quick minded, fast learner.

MARS is drive ambition, and he definitely had that. His ambition, his machismo was powerful. Mars is speed, risk, and thrills. In the 1st house it’s all about “ME.” He most likely had that infamous dual nature. Could be shy and retiring but also sought the spotlight and fame.

Mercury – thinking capacity is  conjunct NEPTUNE {spirit, dreams, and fantasy} in VIRGO. He was highly intelligent meticulous, organized as one would have to be back then as it tool a lot of  skill  to operate relatively simple space craft  by humans. He was a dreamer on a vast scale. Neptune rules creativity and actors, He was playing a role, the role of explorer, hero, pioneer. His thoughts created dreams.

Neil’s Venus was also in Virgo; he loved and valued precision, order, organization, being detached and most of all being of service.

Jupiter was in Cancer {family man, traditional, sentimental, close to his mother} is opposite Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn in the 8th house of transformation, power, secrets, control. This is a strong work hard, play hard aspect. It must have been difficult for him to worry about dying on a  mission and not being able to be there for his family if anything happened. It was a very risky mission.

Saturn Retro in Capricorn indicated that his karma was one where he already knew how to assume worldly power, hold the mantle of authority from previous lives.

Jupiter and Saturn form a T-square to Uranus at the 15th degree of ARIES. Aries planets like to play wth fire. The 15th degree is always the most powerful and Uranus is the planet of firsts, pioneers, revolutionaries, inventors, and freedom seekers.

Pluto is in Cancer , old fashioned American values, serving his country as his duty. Never questioning or rebelling against established authority. Pluto in Cancer rules the stomach and Neil died as a result of stomach related operation.

Pluto squares Uranus so his souls’ mission was to change the world.

His MC or highest career goal sign is of course AQUARIUS, the sign of inventors, pioneers, technicians, freedom seekers, unique individuals.

  The north Node his highest spiritual goal at 27 degrees of Aries     {pioneering} in the 12th house house of space, literally, the unconscious,  secrets, karma, bliss.

Mr. Armstrong got to experience something that no man had or will  be able to experience, it was his and his alone and that is the 12th house. It is both the house of alienation, alcoholism, addictions and the connection with the Collective unconscious archetypes of all humans.

Neil’s natal South Node at 27 degrees of Libra {not indicated on the chart} is in the 6th house of work and service. Neil gave up his personal life to be of a greater service to the world. He gave up his need for personal relationships to relate to the whole.

 ASTROLOGY AT HIS DEATH August 25, 2012

Jupiter the planet that rules Sagittarius, airplanes, flight, freedom, higher learning, sacred law, expansion, understanding is transiting exactly on his Natal Mars indicating it is time for Neil to expand into the Galaxy and truly fly free.

Neptune planet of spirituality, dreaming, is also exactly opposite his Natal Neptune, again a very powerful image of a spiritual upload to the heavens.

Venus at 16 degrees of Cancer is exactly square to his Natal Uranus on the cusp of his 12th house, and close to Neil’s natal Pluto. The love for freedom and for his soul’s purpose is evident here.

Pluto is just passed his natal Saturn, and this is very karmic, the soul Pluto, and the physical body {Saturn in Capricorn} have united for the 3rd and last pass of this transit. Pluto is also opposite his natal Jupiter, a true expansion.

The transiting South Node has just crossed Neil’s Ascendant, and is square to his Natal Neptune. His past is done, he will wear a new form. The right place for Neil to be is in bliss in the Oneness.

Interesting  that the recent SATURN/ MARS conjunction fell exactly on Mr. Armstrong’s SOUTH NODE, opposite his North Node in indicating that his work on the earth in this lifetime was done.

Curiosity lands on Mars, Martian Triangle in the sky, Astronomy Astrology from Tara Greene

Sunday August 5  at 10:31 pm California time the 1 ton Mars rover Curiosity Lands safely on Mars.

Costing 2 Billion and taking over 8 years of research, the explorer robot started streaming dusty live photos from Mars. The maneuvers necessary for Curiosity’s landing are phenomenal, in a few minutes the spacecraft changes shape like a toy Transformer six times, slowing from 13,000 mph to 1.7 mph while using 76 pyrotechnic devices, ropes, knives and the largest supersonic parachute ever built.

Mars varies in its distance from earth but this time was  350 million miles away. It takes 14 minutes for sound to travel to the vehicle from earth so Curiosity had to land itself on auto pilot. This is  a big deal as most Mars exploration missions have ended in failure. It took MARS energized curiosity to do this mission. The first one of its kind.

REAL MARTIAN TRIANGLE  visible in the Sky

Mars Spica Saturn

synchronicity is with us as Sunday evening Mars also put on a special showing as it forms what is known as a MARTIAN TRIANGLE in the sky, aligning with Saturn and the bright blue giant Star SPICA in the constellation of VIRGO.  Mars Saturn and Spica form an equilateral triangle. Spica, the main star in the constellation of VIRGO the virgin is a massive Binary Star on the other side of our galactic spiral arm. Virgo is the largest constellation in the sky. But they all shine with the same magnitude.

A Martian Trinagle sounds like a Male Pubic Triangle to me, something kinda sexy, don’t you think?

It’s definitely a RED LETTER Day.

MARTIAL TIMES

Is this a sign of  Martial law coming? 

IN ASTROLOGY TERMS

Curiosity Mars landing NASA

click on the chart to view larger

the MOON is in the Sign of ARIES in western Tropical Astrology and that’s the 1st sign always about new beginnings. Aries is ruled by the RED planet. The Chart for the exact landing of curiosity shows a 14 degrees ARIES Ascendant, ruled by Mars which is sitting hovering on the Descendant opposite at 19 degrees of LIBRA fairly close to Saturn the reality planet at 24 degrees.

The Mars Saturn combo is a hard one but in this case really depicts Mars-action, desire, men and Saturn-discipline,reality working together. It was 8 years of work and  that’s Saturn testing to get Curiosity safely landed on Mars.

The chart shows Uranus the hHi-tech, freedom planet at 8 degrees Retrograde of Aries near to the Ascendant squaring Pluto at 7 degrees Retro of Capricorn at the top of the chart. Yes  U.S. Inventiveness puts them in a power position  in the world’s eyes.

Venus at 28 degree of Gemini is conjunct the NORTH STAR POLARIS and directly opposite the Galactic Center in Sagittarius.

Venus forms a Grand Trine with Neptune at 2 degrees of PISCES- space-and Saturn. Jupiter in Gemini is also Trine to Mars- Jupiter rules Sagittarius expansion, luck to Mars itself.

The North Node at 2 degrees of Sagittarius is squaring Neptune. THE NORTH NODE has been in SAGITTARIUS for the last 2. 5 years is all about expanding horizons, travel, space, adventure, the centre of our Galaxy is in Sagittarius both Tropical and Sidereal. This mission represents a literal dream come true.

Mars and the Olympics

Mars rules men in Astrology. And everything to do with the Sign of ARIES, being FIRST. And Yes MARS also figures prominently in most athlete’s charts. Record Olympic GOLD medal champion is Michael PHELPS,  a Cancer Sun with yes you guessed in MARS 6 degrees away from his Sun at 14 degrees, right on the U.S. Sun and Fixed Star Sirius. I will write about what makes Michael’s astrology chart so outstanding in the next article or so.  Mars also rules the sign of SCORPIO traditionally with modern co-ruler PLUTO. Mars rules fire and everything related to it, energy, life force, initiating,action, libido, passion, power, control, machismo, strength, force, war, anger, fighting martial, the army, death, danger, adventure, excitation, you get the picture.
