“I lost my prescription sunglasses during the wild and crazy weeks of October 2014 during which we were on the road most of the time. I don’t know precisely when they vanished or where.“
OK, I took third and fourth sentence but I felt it needed some explanation. I don’t feel the need to include this in my post, since every half an hour my sentence in real life is “Where are my glasses?”
I am a member of “I lose my glasses AT LEAST three times a day” group on Facebook, it is THAT serious. And, in fact I don’t have them on right now. Where are they?
Just a sec…
Found them. On a table. Three rooms away.
So, If by any chance I end up on a road for some time, this sentence could became mine.
Also, I found incredible page with stunning photos every day which have provided my curious mind with incredible photos of a Solar Eclipse from few days ago. Do check it out if you like awesome stuff: APOD.nasa
Hey! I really had to come here just to post this, I would not be me if I didn’t. 😀
Tomorrow is a Solar Eclipse!
AND it is visible in Europe! For the first time since 1999.! Which I remember, by the way. 🙂 That does not mean that there were no Solar Eclipses in between (2006., 2011.) but none as visible as the one in 1999.
Here is the map of where it will be visible and I think you can get the info of when at your local online media.
And now, lets get more sciency. Is that a word? Now it is. 😉
What causes a solar eclipse?
A solar eclipse happens whenever the new moon passes in front of the sun, and the moon’s shadow falls on our planet. A solar eclipse is only possible at new moon because that’s the only time whereby the moon to go in front of the sun, as seen from Earth. Most of the time, however, the new moon either swings north or south of the solar disk, so no eclipse of the sun takes place.
Why new moon? On the day of new moon, the moon rises when the sun rises. It sets when the sun sets. It crosses the sky with the sun during the day. (source: earthsky.org)
Protect your eyes.
Do not look directly at the Sun. 😦 It causes permanent damage to your eye and possible blindness. That is no fun. That’s why you can look at the Solar Eclipse through glasses design for it and better telescopes with filters design for it. Also, you can catch a glimpse through a glass covered in carbon black, but that is not recommended. The best way to look at it is to make your projector. It is simple and instructions are here:MAKE YOUR PROJECTOR
Oh I can’t wait for professional photos of tomorrows Solar Eclipse and images from ISS (International Space Station) 😀
If you didn’t know, my blog is called Ivy Mosquito because I am allergic to f**king mosquitoes…
Not life threatening, but lets just say that they can make me limp for few days if they bite me on my ankles.
I have been enjoy outdoor life and nature in this last 5 days. It was lovely. ❤
Result: I am sitting here TRYING not to think about dozen mosquito bites I have all over my legs and hands. Effing stupid mosquitoes.
I didn’t bring the mosquito repellent because two days I was on my bike, foolishly thinking that “I’m too fast for them to bite me.” XD
Now I’m smarter when I look like I have been in a battle, and sitting super carefully because God forbid that I accidentally scratch somewhere…anywhere.
Ok, so my mission yesterday was to capture the Supermoon. It is called Supermoon because it is bigger from regular full moon and 30% brighter. The next one to come close to it will happen in September next year.
Normally, that kind of information would excite me. But, not these days.
The Perseid meteor shower is getting close to its peak on August 12 and 13, and we have a super big moon covering all of it. Most of it.
That’s not cool.
I will despite that fact, try to see some of them tonight and tomorrow. Fingers crossed!
I didn’t have any clever title for this one. But I am not apologising. Nope. Hashtag Unapologetic.
I am kind of “Fuck it” today (and yesterday, and day before, and day before…) But today it’s really on. I have this annoying health/emotional thingies that irritate me mucho. in times like this inspiration is something important. Except it is not. Just fuck it. It is how it is. Motivation is on the other hand, mucho important. I don’t know whatssup with “mucho”, but I like it mucho. So, just put your fist or middle finger up to the world and say, Fuck you, you can’t crush Me! Suck it world.
Gotta go. Eat some pudding. Chocolate makes the world better.
Oh, right. In the photo, that’s the full moon in between city lights. 😉
I have snapped a few (dozen) amazing photos lately… And when I say they are amazing, they really are… For now, they go in my “everything” folder, until I find the time and until there comes a topic in which they will fit. 🙂
Photography is starting to be more than a hobby for me, it is a form of my self-expression. 🙂
