“2017 Eclipse”

8 photos from a timelapse of the 2017 eclipse.
I thought I was prepared with 2 cameras, charged batteries and empty camera cards, but about half way through the eclipse both of my sd cards were full, and I didn’t have extras. Still I’m more than happy I caught as much as I did.
Another problem was that it was quite windy, which shook the camera quite a bit. (that will make the timelapse video tricky to fix)
And the last problem was that my camera settings on the other camera were not good. The sun was over exposed, and you can’t see the eclipse at all.

Gather

🕯White Candle (to dispel negative energy)

🕯Bay Leaf (for protection)

🕯Turmeric (for purification) 

🕯Salt (for protection and purification)

🕯Basil (for protection)

🕯Amethyst (for calming and good feelings)

🕯Quartz (for healing)

Process

🕯Take the salt and basil and sprinkle it around the room, lining all the walls. Make sure to put extra around doors and windows.

🕯Place your candle in the center of the room, or as close as possible. Place the quartz and amethyst next to it. Then light the candle.

🕯While sitting next to the lit candle place a dot of turmeric on each wrist.

🕯Light the bay leaf, then carry it around the room. Make sure to use proper fire safety. After you’ve circled the entire room let the bay leaf burn completely. 

Moving Forward

Let the candle and bay leaf burn out completely. Fill yourself with the positive energy of the objects around you. Breathe deeply and reject the wickedness around you. This is your space, and you are safe there. Repeat when needed.

“North Meets East”

Star trails circle around the north star (top left) and the lines straighten out as you look to the east (right side) if you could see the view to the right (out of frame) the lines would start to curve again, in the opposite direction as the stars appear to circle the south pole.
I made this time stack by combining 356 photos into one image. I also took out a few airplane trails, and faded in the beginning and end of the timelapse so the star trails don’t start and end abruptly.

The cosmic swirl of giant waves in an enormous reservoir of glowing hot gas are visible in this enhanced X-ray image from the Chandra Observatory. The frame spans over 1 million light-years across the center of the nearby Perseus Galaxy Cluster. With temperatures in the tens of millions of degrees, the gas glows brightly in X-rays. Computer simulations can reproduce details of the structures sloshing through the Perseus cluster’s X-ray hot gas, including the remarkable concave bay seen below and left of center. About 200,000 light-years across, twice the size of the Milky Way, the bay’s formation indicates that Perseus itself was likely grazed by a smaller galaxy cluster billions of years ago.
