Admittedly, I’m partial to Randy Halverson’s night sky photography from South Dakota. Having grown up in neighboring North Dakota myself, Halverson’s images bring back memories of the dark skies that grace the northern plains. But this one is just stunning, not to mention my early childhood home was surrounded by cottonwood trees — towering giants with ample limbs, and one of the few trees that grew well in the harsh prairies of the Dakotas.
Randy said he was trying out some new gear with this image, which is a frame from a timelapse he is shooting (can’t wait!) He used ased a Canon 6D and a Rokinon 24mm F1.4 lens (set at F2), using Emotimo TB3 Black timelapse equipment, shot at ISO 3200 for 20 seconds.

I really like Aliza from Moonplutoastrology.com. She's got Cancer Sun caring and Moon Pluto x-ray vision. Her style is like a comforting bowl of chicken soup... with a matzah ball of practical wisdom. She also reads Tarot!
Me? I like to get a birth chart and break it down like a mechanic, find out where that clunking noise is coming from, and get you back on the road... so to speak. Sure, I have a spiritual approach to life, but at heart I guess I just like fixing things.
Aliza and I have our own very different approaches, but ultimately we seem to be looking at the same picture, even if we describe it differently. And, let's be honest here: if you can't see a relationship from more than just one side... you aren't really seeing the relationship.
That's why Aliza and I have decided to pool our resources on a special, limited-time offer that we like to call

Astrology For Life On Earth
In April, when the Hubble Space Telescope looked out towards Jupiter’s orbit and observed what has been billed as the “Comet of the Century” – Comet C/2012 S1 ISON – the space telescope photographed a unique feature in the comet’s coma. Now, a team of ground-based astronomers have performed follow-up observations, imaging Comet ISON as it heads towards the Sun and was just outside the orbit of Mars. They, too, have seen something in the coma and suspect it’s a similar feature to what Hubble imaged. The object is thought to be a jet blasting dust particles off the sunward-facing side of the comet’s nucleus.
These very useful follow-up observations are providing more insight on this highly anticipated comet, as well as helping to predict what might happen when it makes its closest approach to the Sun in November 2013.
“The hype surrounding this comet has been extreme” said Nick Howes from the Remanzacco Observatory, “with some wildly optimistic estimates for magnitude. We’re hoping this measured scientific approach will yield results just as exciting to the science community, even if the comet doesn’t end up meeting everyone’s expectations visually, for whatever reason.”
