sun inside

A prewritten epilogue

This was written before the last sneak peek got out and even though I had the chance to edit it I didn’t want to since I wanted to explore a little more of Regina’s head without actually taking into account this “amazing” idea of them of creating aus just because they don’t know what to do next. Is funny because as I wrote the reason of why this (my so to speak) Henry may have had decided to leave Storybrooke I remember thinking; they are going to go there, aren’t they? So yup, here we are. I hope, however, that you all like this version of this story.

 The book didn’t weigh as much as the old one had. That was the first thing Regina thought as she caressed its cover, looking at the creamy white color and the letters that seemed to be mocking at her as they glinted beneath the dim lights of Seattle’s setting sun. The pictures inside, however, were as harsh and painful -perhaps more- than the ones she had seen staring back at her back when the man in front of her had been a child asking who his mother was.

As she stared at the last one, the one in where their stories felt as if they had reached their end, she grazed her own face back on it, the timid warmth of the picture cold to her touch. Memories, as they were, were as painful as the realization she had made that the child wasn’t a child anymore but a kid that seek answers. The same burning want she now could see on the girl’s eyes that stood next to him.

She had his chin; Regina smiled sadly for a second, just imagining how smug Snow would feel if she got to remember and got to know that her great-granddaughter had something of her. The girl, Lucy, had something else though, something Henry hadn’t really have; a much more practiced calculating glance, one in where Regina could see another set of eyes looking at her past from a future she had once thought she would never get to see.

Swallowing, she let the heavy scent of the city fill her lungs; the scent of gas and asphalt mixed with just the barest hints of grass. A very distinct smell, something Storybrooke had had as well. Albeit, she conceded listening to the cars that honked in the distance, far enough from where the three of them were but close enough to be always present, Storybrooke’s had always be better.

“You remember?”

The voice of the girl was soft and serious, her eyes boring into Regina’s as she looked up, glancing first at Henry, finding on herself the same will to care for him that had moved her forward so many years ago. The boy -now a man- looked as grave as the girl, perhaps more since his chest expanded quickly betraying his nervousness, his own doubts. She could see on his well-kept but still beaten clothes, something similar to another person, another woman, the one who had been at Henry’s other side during that particular picture. His fingers twitched for a moment as Regina addressed him and the brunette needed to fight against her need to hug him close.

She could remember many things, many different, difficult things. Like the day Henry had decided that he needed to travel in order to become the author. That day had been the last day the both of them had seen each other, the last day in where they had talked and for a moment Regina tilted her head to her left, narrowing her eyes at the sudden clarity that filled them.

Henry remembered as well. The shouts, the questions, the moment Regina had asked him to admit that he was heading out because of what had happened to Emma. The second Henry had admitted that it was indeed that precisely what made him pack and leave. Leave everyone behind.

Henry’s nostrils trembled, a word seeming to be about to come out from his lips before Regina closed her eyes, a sudden decision forming on her mind as she nodded, turning back to Lucy who kept staring at her, eyes equally narrowed, a glint of something akin to knowledge glowing on the back of her pupils.

She, Regina thought, looked a little like Emma; the same determination, the same strength, the same way of telling her that she knew when Regina hid something from her. A trait that had been their end after all. After everything.

Drawing a taut smile, the former queen hummed and gave the book back to Lucy, the girl’s arms hugging the book just as quickly as Regina turned towards Henry, staring at the ink that stained the rim of his sleeves. The breeze brought yet another honk and the muffled chatter Regina had chosen to tune out.

“Do you have a place to go?” She finally asked, making the final decision in the split of a second, flinching inwardly at Henry’s barely hidden sign of surprise on the twitch of the muscles on his face. Nevertheless, she swallowed the pain, the blouse suddenly feeling tight on her chest. Heavy. “A place to stay?”

“We were hoping…” It was Lucy the first one to speak, her voice softer than hers or Henry’s who had looked down at her for a moment before turning to look at Regina, his smile never quite reaching his eyes.

It was a strange concept, Regina thought, looking at her son and seeing the baby and the child, the kid and the teen, the young man who had transformed into something, someone more as she tried to fight the villains that seemed to appear around them without a stop. It was harder to see on him, however, a stranger at the same time. A concept she would probably find an answer on Snow.

Or perhaps, she admitted, thinking back on blonde tresses and green eyes, perhaps not.

“You can come with me.”

-.-

The flat was the same as the one she had left this morning, with white and wood details here and there; too many books to care and just enough sunlight to bathe the surface of the small living room she owned. Now, however, as she opened the door and let the pair come in she it suddenly felt different, less and she could do nothing but caress the nearest wall as Lucy entered and stared at every detail with the same intent Henry also demonstrated. The eyes of an author. That had been an epithet the boy had been subjected to during the last years in Storybrooke. Something Henry detested but was true. Eyes for every detail, for every inane thing, were now reflected back on Lucy’s own stare and Regina smiled softly, albeit sadly, as the child followed the mots of dust that danced on the sunray that illuminated the place in a now seemingly gloomier light than before.

“I would have never written you here.”

Magnetospheres: How Do They Work?

The sun, Earth, and many other planets are surrounded by giant magnetic bubbles.

Space may seem empty, but it’s actually a dynamic place, dominated by invisible forces, including those created by magnetic fields.  Magnetospheres – the areas around planets and stars dominated by their magnetic fields – are found throughout our solar system. They deflect high-energy, charged particles called cosmic rays that are mostly spewed out by the sun, but can also come from interstellar space. Along with atmospheres, they help protect the planets’ surfaces from this harmful radiation.

It’s possible that Earth’s protective magnetosphere was essential for the development of conditions friendly to life, so finding magnetospheres around other planets is a big step toward determining if they could support life.

But not all magnetospheres are created equal – even in our own backyard, not all planets in our solar system have a magnetic field, and the ones we have observed are all surprisingly different.

Earth’s magnetosphere is created by the constantly moving molten metal inside Earth. This invisible “force field” around our planet has an ice cream cone-like shape, with a rounded front and a long, trailing tail that faces away from the sun. The magnetosphere is shaped that way because of the constant pressure from the solar wind and magnetic fields on the sun-facing side.

Earth’s magnetosphere deflects most charged particles away from our planet – but some do become trapped in the magnetic field and create auroras when they rain down into the atmosphere.

We have several missions that study Earth’s magnetosphere – including the Magnetospheric Multiscale mission, Van Allen Probes, and Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms (also known as THEMIS) – along with a host of other satellites that study other aspects of the sun-Earth connection.

Mercury, with a substantial iron-rich core, has a magnetic field that is only about 1% as strong as Earth’s. It is thought that the planet’s magnetosphere is stifled by the intense solar wind, limiting its strength, although even without this effect, it still would not be as strong as Earth’s. The MESSENGER satellite orbited Mercury from 2011 to 2015, helping us understand our tiny terrestrial neighbor.

After the sun, Jupiter has by far the biggest magnetosphere in our solar system – it stretches about 12 million miles from east to west, almost 15 times the width of the sun. (Earth’s, on the other hand, could easily fit inside the sun.) Jupiter does not have a molten metal core like Earth; instead, its magnetic field is created by a core of compressed liquid metallic hydrogen.

One of Jupiter’s moons, Io, has intense volcanic activity that spews particles into Jupiter’s magnetosphere. These particles create intense radiation belts and the large auroras around Jupiter’s poles.

Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon, also has its own magnetic field and magnetosphere – making it the only moon with one. Its weak field, nestled in Jupiter’s enormous shell, scarcely ruffles the planet’s magnetic field.

Our Juno mission orbits inside the Jovian magnetosphere sending back observations so we can better understand this region. Previous observations have been received from Pioneers 10 and 11, Voyagers 1 and 2, Ulysses, Galileo and Cassini in their flybys and orbits around Jupiter.

Saturn’s moon Enceladus transforms the shape of its magnetosphere. Active geysers on the moon’s south pole eject oxygen and water molecules into the space around the planet. These particles, much like Io’s volcanic emissions at Jupiter, generate the auroras around the planet’s poles. Our Cassini mission studies Saturn’s magnetic field and auroras, as well as its moon Enceladus.

Uranus’ magnetosphere wasn’t discovered until 1986 when data from Voyager 2’s flyby revealed weak, variable radio emissions. Uranus’ magnetic field and rotation axis are out of alignment by 59 degrees, unlike Earth’s, whose magnetic field and rotation axis differ by only 11 degrees. On top of that, the magnetic field axis does not go through the center of the planet, so the strength of the magnetic field varies dramatically across the surface. This misalignment also means that Uranus’ magnetotail – the part of the magnetosphere that trails away from the sun – is twisted into a long corkscrew.

Neptune’s magnetosphere is also tilted from its rotation axis, but only by 47. Just like on Uranus, Neptune’s magnetic field strength varies across the planet. This also means that auroras can be seen away from the planet’s poles – not just at high latitudes, like on Earth, Jupiter and Saturn.

Does Every Planet Have a Magnetosphere?

Neither Venus nor Mars have global magnetic fields, although the interaction of the solar wind with their atmospheres does produce what scientists call an “induced magnetosphere.” Around these planets, the atmosphere deflects the solar wind particles, causing the solar wind’s magnetic field to wrap around the planet in a shape similar to Earth’s magnetosphere.

What About Beyond Our Solar System?

Outside of our solar system, auroras, which indicate the presence of a magnetosphere, have been spotted on brown dwarfs – objects that are bigger than planets but smaller than stars.

There’s also evidence to suggest that some giant exoplanets have magnetospheres. As scientists now believe that Earth’s protective magnetosphere was essential for the development of conditions friendly to life, finding magnetospheres around exoplanets is a big step in finding habitable worlds.

What’s Up for March 2017?

What’s Up for March? The moon hides red star Aldebaran and crescents dazzle after dusk.

On March 4 the first quarter moon passes between Earth and the star Aldebaran, temporarily blocking our view of the star. This is called an occultation. 

The occultation begins and concludes at different times, depending on where you are when you view it.

The event should be easy to see from most of the U.S., Mexico, most of Central America, the Western Caribbean and Bermuda. 

Observers along a narrow path from Vancouver, British Columbia, to Hartford, Connecticut, will see the moon “graze” the star. The star will disappear and reappear repeatedly as hills and valleys on the moon alternately obscure and reveal it.

As seen from Earth, both Mercury and Venus have phases like our moon. That’s because they circle the sun inside Earth’s orbit. 

Planets that orbit between Earth and the sun are known as inner or inferior planets.

Inferior planets can never be at “opposition,” which is when the planet and the sun are on opposite sides of Earth.

But inferior planets can be at “conjunction,” which is when a planet, the sun and Earth are all in a straight line. 

Conjunction can happen once when the planet is on the opposite side of the sun from Earth and again when it’s on the same side of the sun as Earth. 

When a planet is on the opposite side of the sun from Earth, we say it is at “superior conjunction.” As the planet moves out from behind the sun and gets closer to Earth, we see less and less of the lit side. We see phases, similar to our moon’s phases. 

Mercury is at superior conjunction on March 6. 

A few weeks later, the planet emerges from behind the sun and we can once again observe it. By the end of March we’ll see a last-quarter Mercury.

 On April 20 Mercury reaches “inferior conjunction.”

Brilliant Venus is also racing toward its own inferior conjunction on March 25. Watch its crescent get thinner and thinner as the planet’s size appears larger and larger, because it is getting closer to Earth.

Finally, look for Jupiter to rise in the East. It will be visible all month long from late evening until dawn.

The upper atmosphere of the Sun is dominated by plasma filled magnetic loops (coronal loops) whose temperature and pressure vary over a wide range. The appearance of coronal loops follows the emergence of magnetic flux, which is generated by dynamo processes inside the Sun. Emerging flux regions (EFRs) appear when magnetic flux bundles emerge from the solar interior through the photosphere and into the upper atmosphere (chromosphere and the corona). The characteristic feature of EFR is the -shaped loops (created by the magnetic buoyancy/Parker instability), they appear as developing bipolar sunspots in magnetograms, and as arch filament systems in . EFRs interact with pre-existing magnetic fields in the corona and produce small flares (plasma heating) and collimated plasma jets. The GIFs above show multiple energetic jets in three different wavelengths. The light has been colorized in red, green and blue, corresponding to three coronal temperature regimes ranging from ~0.8Mk to 2MK.

Our hope, our angel. Our J-Hope.

This sun trapped inside a human body, is beautiful. I don’t get it when people think he’s ugly or untalented. I mean, are you blind!? Have you seen his smile!? Have you seen him dance!? Have you heard him rap or sing!? Like goodness. He can be an angel when he smiles but when he dance or raps, he’s a whole different person. How he follows the choreography perfectly and puts in every energy in his body on every performance gives me life.

I want him to be appreciated by just his presence. I want him to be loved by the other ARMYs as they love jungkook or taehyung. Because i don’t want this piece of sunshine to be sad, i love him too much to see him like that. I want ARMYs to watch his (V)lives or hostings without asking for other members. He’s important like every other member. I want him to see that we love him so much. And we appreciate every thing he does. 

I love this angel so much, i can’t afford him to be sad. It makes me sad aswell. How can people not love him!? He is so beautiful, inside and out. And i can’t believe people hate on him. How!? I mean, he’s gorgeous. Has the most amazing smile. Has ethereal looks. Has the most beautiful and funny personality. And talented person ever!

I want him to feel the love that i give him everyday of my life. Sometimes, i just look at a picture of him and i just smile without noticing. He has done so many thing for us, that sometimes people don’t see. I am so thankful that i am living with the same era as him. I don’t want him to recieve hate, because he doesn’t deserve it. He deserves love, respect and appreciation. Not hate and disrespectfulness.

Appreciate him, Love him, and ofcourse. Respect him.

사랑해, 생일 축하해 정호석.

Dream Vacations for the Signs

…because we all dream about being miles away sometimes. 

Hiking (Aries, Taurus)

listen and dream yourself away

being one with nature, waking up to the chirping of the birds and the rustling of the trees, bonfires, the overwhelming feeling of freedom, disbelief towards the beauty of nature, wind making your hair dance, physical exhaustion but mental satisfaction

Road Trip (Gemini, Sagittarius)

listen and dream yourself away

listening to music on full volume, old gas stations, watching the world roll past in front of the car window, constant airflow to make the heat more bearable, pulling up to go skinny dipping or watch the stars, genuine laughter, hanging your head or hands out the window

Holidays by the lake (Cancer, Capricorn)

listen and dream yourself away

solitude, peace and quiet, rowing on  a hot and sunny day, watching the lake wake up und go to sleep with beautiful sunrises and sunsets, hot tea and wine, being with your favourite person, finding yourself, being free from troubles, watching nature sitting on a gangplank wrapped in blankets

Holidays at the beach (Leo, Pisces)

listen and dream yourself away

the sun warming you inside out, collecting shells, wasting your time in the sun, fooling around in the water, listening to the steady rythm of the tides, sand sticking to your body, smelling the salty sea breeze, burning your feet on the hot sand, the smell of sunscreen

Holidays in the city (Virgo, Libra)

listen and dream yourself away

visiting museums, sitting in beautiful cafés watching all different sorts people, long strolls to all of your favourite places on a sunny day, eating ice cream, smiling to strangers, taking pictures, watching the city wake up from a rooftop, midnight kisses under the streetlights

Holidays in the jungle (Scorpio, Aquarius)

listen and dream yourself away

wavy hair and summer dresses, lying in the hammock, wasting your day at a lagoon, living where no one can find you, worshipping nature, waking up to hundreds of different noises, diversity of plants and colors and animals, feeling completely relaxed

a list of crack headcannons

tag yourself i’m sheep coat. 

houseboatboathouse  asked:

i am wanting to really pursue astrology as a path of learning and perhaps, in the future, a profession. do you have any advice for beginning?

if it doesn’t come bursting out of you
in spite of everything,
don’t do it.
unless it comes unasked out of your
heart and your mind and your mouth
and your gut,
don’t do it.
if you have to sit for hours
staring at your computer screen
or hunched over your
typewriter
searching for words,
don’t do it.
if you’re doing it for money or
fame,
don’t do it.
if you’re doing it because you want
women in your bed,
don’t do it.
if you have to sit there and
rewrite it again and again,
don’t do it.
if it’s hard work just thinking about doing it,
don’t do it.
if you have to wait for it to roar out of
you,
then wait patiently.
if it never does roar out of you,
do something else.

unless the sun inside you is
burning your gut,
don’t do it.

when it is truly time,
and if you have been chosen,
it will do it by
itself and it will keep on doing it
until you die or it dies in you.

there is no other way.

and there never was.

this is a poem by Bukowski, and i think, not just for astrologers and writers, but for anyone honestly wanting to pursue a profession that will bring fulfilment
