Where are my glasses?

This is from Marilyn’s post, but it could oh so easily be mine. 🙂

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

Solar Eclipse 20.03.2015.

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.

YAY!

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) 😀

Orange. What was first, the color or the name?

I love taking photos like this one… When I don’t have to do ANY editing whatsoever, none. 🙂

Also, I totally like the orange theme! It seems that I am surrounded with it since I saw it everywhere when I read this week’s theme for DPchallenge.

Enjoy in my gallery of “orange” while I go and eat one 😎

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Orange you glad it’s photo challenge time?.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition | The eyes

Street lights usually interfere with my desire to capture sky/clouds/sunset because I don’t live high enough to leave them behind. (Or should I say below)

It is a frustration because it is not the same if I took my camera and run across the street, or try to get a good shot, because the shot I wanted is gone.

So I love this photo. It is like it is. The innocent street light is getting in my way again and like it knows it shows its evil eyes in dark. 🙂

More of this week challenge here.

Weekly Photo Challenge | My window (s) to the world

Hai! 🙂

There is not much to say… I need my glasses to see clearly, and although I did wear contacts, they are a bit to expensive because I have a different diopter on each eye… But I don’t mind them, most of the time. They are the biggest problem at summer time, I can’t swim with them 😦 So I end up staring at random people at the beach or pool. 😀

Plus, I wanted to do photos of real windows. This is the truth and I kid you not, every time I look through a window I look at the sky. That is why sunsets photos are never-ending inspiration to me…
