SS: the first eclipse of 2015 will be crossing the North Pole of 20 Mar …  in the starmap the eclipse is in pisces ….. the volcano eruption in iceland (dubbed the largest iceland eruption ever) has just subsided in the last week .. as always i give one week windows on both sides of an eclipse for possible earthquake activity .. the eclipse will be followed in two weeks by a lunar eclipse. …the moon will likely be red blood moon as it is going through a sequence of red moons atm.

Iceland’s Largest Eruption Ends…Maybe March 02 2015 Iceland’s biggest volcanic eruption in more than 200 years has ended for now. The huge Holuhraun lava field is still pocked by steaming craters, but no glowing lava was seen from the air or detected by satellites on Friday (Feb. 27). Scientists with the Icelandic Meteorological Office declared an end to the six-month-long eruption on Saturday (Feb. 28). However, scientists will still watch for signs that magma is building pressure beneath Bardarbunga volcano, the source of Holuhraun’s lava. A series of eruptions could take place in the coming months to years either underneath the volcano or in a different location, or Bardarbunga could go back to sleep.

Iceland Building First Pagan Temple in 1,000 Years FEB 8, 2015 Hilmarsson said Thor, Ordin and Frigg are important deities in the religion. Thor is the protector of mankind, Ordin is the god of wisdom and poetry, and Frigg is the goddess of domestic and love. If names like Thor ring a bell, it might be because some Asatru gods have recently seen a surge in America thanks to Marvel’s blockbuster films about them. “There is a skewed vision because the Marvel version is like a Shakespeare,” Hilmarsson said. “We certainly enjoy them but don’t see them as religious in any sense.” The priest said the gods are viewed as mystical and symbolic. Most modern worshipers don’t consider them to be living beings that are capable of flying down from the clouds. “We don’t tend to be literal in our beliefs in Iceland, not even the Christian ones,” Hilmarsson said.

The Northern Lights are seen above the ash plume of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano in the evening in this April 22, 2010 file photo.  Lucas Jackson: The ash cloud brought the greatest disruption to European air travel since World War Two, and the only way to get to Iceland was to fly from North America. I travelled overnight, arriving at Keflavik airport at 6:30 a.m. on April 17. In a rented car I drove east towards the ash plume on the horizon. The scale of the assignment had begun to sink in, and I realized it would require careful thinking, rather than instant reaction. For images of the eruption itself I was dependent on the weather. The plume would be invisible if it was overcast, and if the wind died the ash would turn to a haze. For a photograph of lightning flashing inside the ash cloud I had to wait for several hours on a washed-out road, and physically hold my shutter open for more than two minutes.  To show vehicle-size chunks of lava exploding out of the volcano I had to drive through eight different rivers and up a mountain to angle a 300 mm lens at the crater. On my last evening I was blessed with a show from the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) while lava illuminated the ash plume from below. I will always remember this assignment fondly. I feel lucky to have been able to document the eruption so others could share in the amazement – watching Mother Nature negate centuries of human technology and progress with one of the most beautiful sights on earth.     REUTERS/Lucas Jackson/Files (ICELAND – Tags: DISASTER ENVIRONMENT TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

    SS: the sun started x-flaring during the Siding Spring Mars flyby and continued with multiple x-flares through the solar eclipse. the latest X3 flare did not produce a coronal mass ejection.. the siding spring mars eclipse sequence ends with a x-flare storm .

    X1-CLASS SOLAR FLARE: This comes as no surprise. Behemoth sunspot AR2192 has unleashed an X1-class solar flare. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the blast in this extreme UV image of the sun on Oct. 19th (0500 UT):

    MONSTER SUNSPOT: The biggest sunspot of the current solar cycle is turning toward Earth. This morning when astronomer Karzaman Ahmad of Malaysia’s Langkawi Nagtional Observatory looked through the eyepiece of his solar telescope, he declared AR2192 a “monster” and snapped this picture:

    LOTS OF SOLAR FLARES: Solar activity is high. During the past 48 hours, monster sunspot AR2192 has produced a series of seven M-class solar flares of increasing intensity. The eruptions crossed the threshold into X-territory with an X1-class flare on Oct. 22nd. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded a powerful flash of extreme UV radiation in the sunspot’s magnetic canopy at 14:30 UT:

    ANOTHER X-FLARE: Giant sunspot AR2192 erupted again on Oct. 24th (21:40 UT), producing a powerful X3-class solar flare. Using a backyard solar telescope, Sergio Castillo of Corona, California, was monitoring the sunspot when it exploded, and he snapped this picture:

    GIANT SUNSPOT CRACKLING WITH FLARES: AR2192 is the biggest sunspot in nearly 25 years, and it is still growing. The active region now covers 2750 millionths of the solar disk, an area equivalent to more than 16 planet Earths skinned and spread out flat. It is so large that sky watchers are seeing it with the naked eye when the sun is dimmed by low-hanging clouds or, in this case, dense fog:

    A total lunar eclipse, also known as a “blood moon”, is pictured from Encinitas, California October 8, 2014. The coppery, reddish color the moon takes is made as it passes into Earth’s shadow. The total eclipse is the second of four over a two-year period that began April 15 and concludes on Sept. 28, 2015. The total eclipse is the second of four over a two-year period that began April 15 and concludes on Sept. 28, 2015. The so-called tetrad is unusual because the full eclipses are visible in all or parts of the United States, according to retired NASA astrophysicist Fred Espenak.

        SS: we are now only three weeks away from the Siding Spring close passage to mars. the comet should be a whopping -6 magnitude or brighter if viewed from mars.  the view from earth is +8 magnitude. who is going to get the best image of siding spring is what we are all wondering.?? will comet dust and fragments impacts the martian atmosphere and/or surface ?? will there be dust storms from any impacts that will be viewable from earth ?? these are all questions that no one knows the answers to right now. on 27 October the moon will align with siding spring in the mayan hunab ku after the passage while on 04 october before the passage siding spring will be near the “Sting of the Scorpion” star Shaula Scorpii.

        SS: UPDATE 10-01-14: imediatly following the Lunar Mars Antares Siding Spring alignment on the 29 September the vanguard come Schwassmann Wachmann went into OUTBURST on 30 September 2014. SW1 happens to be very near Antares as well .. this can be seen in the new starmap i have added. SW1 outbursts usually last about two weeks unless it is a mega-outburst which could last two months. likely this outburst will last two weeks which means it will be in OUTBURST during the lunar eclipse in october. outbursting comet means more cometary x-rays and scalar activity.

        What’s Up for October 2014 Published on Oct 1, 2014 What’s Up for October? A lunar eclipse, a solar eclipse and Mars has a close encounter with a comet. (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory)

        Caterpillar Comet Poses for Pictures En Route to Mars August 30, 2014 As Comet C/2013 A1 Siding Spring sidles towards its October 19th encounter with Mars, it’s passing a trio of sumptuous deep sky objects near the south celestial pole this week. Astrophotographers weren’t going to let the comet’s picturesque alignments pass without notice. Rolando Ligustri captured this remarkable view using a remote, computer-controlled telescope on August 29th. It shows the rich assemblage of stars and star clusters that comprise the Small Magellanic Cloud, one of the Milky Way’s satellite galaxies located 200,000 light years away.

        NASA Mars Spacecraft Prepare for Close Comet Flyby July 25, 2014 In the days before and after the comet’s flyby, NASA will study the comet by taking advantage of how close it comes to Mars. Researchers plan to use several instruments on the Mars orbiters to study the nucleus, the coma surrounding the nucleus, and the tail of Siding Spring, as well as the possible effects on the Martian atmosphere. This particular comet has never before entered the inner solar system, so it will provide a fresh source of clues to our solar system’s earliest days.

        Mars’ atmosphere, though much thinner than Earth’s, is thick enough that NASA does not anticipate any hazard to the Opportunity and Curiosity rovers on the planet’s surface, even if dust particles from the comet hit the atmosphere and form into meteors. Rover cameras may be used to observe the comet before the flyby, and to monitor the atmosphere for meteors while the comet’s dust trail is closest to the planet.

        NASA’s Swift Satellite Tallies Water Production of Mars-bound Comet June 19, 2014 The comet makes its closest approach to Mars on Oct. 19, passing just 86,000 miles (138,000 km) from the Red Planet — so close that gas and dust in the outermost reaches of the comet’s atmosphere, or coma, will interact with the atmosphere of Mars.

        Mars Express team readies for Siding Spring 02/07/2014 While we know the comet will not hit Mars, nor our spacecraft, Mars Express, initial observation data lead us to expect that the coma (the cloud of dust particles surrounding the comet’s nucleus) will be big enough to envelop Mars and therefore the spacecraft orbiting it.

        Serqet /ˈsɜrˌkɛt/, also known as Selket, Serket or Selcis /ˈsɛlsɨs/, is the goddess of healing venomous stings and bites in Egyptian mythology, originally the deification of the scorpion.[2] Scorpion stings lead to paralysis and Serket’s name describes this, as it means (she who) tightens the throat, however, Serket’s name also can be read as meaning (she who) causes the throat to breathe, and so, as well as being seen as stinging the unrighteous, Serket was seen as one who could cure scorpion stings and the effects of other venoms such as snake bites. In Ancient Egyptian art, Serket was shown as a scorpion (a symbol found on the earliest artifacts of the culture, such as the protodynastic period), or as a woman with a scorpion on her head. Although Serket does not appear to have had any temples, she had a sizable number of priests in many communities.

        Theta Scorpii (θ Sco, θ Scorpii) is a star in the southern zodiac constellation of Scorpius. It has the traditional name Sargas, of Sumerian origin.[10] In Chinese, it is referred to as 尾宿五 (Mandarin: wěi xiù wǔ), the Fifth Star of the Tail.[citation needed] The apparent visual magnitude of this star is +1.87,[2] making it readily visible to the naked eye and one of the brightest stars in the night sky. It is sufficiently near that the distance can be measured directly using the parallax technique, which yields an estimate of roughly 300 light years (90 parsecs).[1]

        Lambda Scorpii (λ Sco, λ Scorpii) is a blue star and the second brightest star system in the constellation Scorpius, and one of the brightest stars in the nighttime sky. It has the Bayer designation λ despite being the second brightest in its constellation. It has the traditional name Shaula, which comes from the Arabic الشولاء al-šawlā´ meaning the raised [tail], as it is found in the tail of the scorpion (Scorpius). It is known as Wei Xiu Ba 尾宿八 (the Eighth Star of the Tail) in Chinese.

        Shaula: The Sting of Scorpius November 25, 2013 Shaula, also known as Lambda Scorpii, is the second-brightest star in the southern constellation Scorpius (which is visible in much of the Northern Hemisphere). Like many of the bright stars close to Earth, Shaula is actually more than one star. Astronomers have confirmed it is made up of two stars, and there could be a third one given that the star system is producing more X-rays than expected, according to astronomer David Darling. The star’s name is an Arabic word that means “the stinger.” Indeed, it forms the end of the hook-shaped stinger in the Zodiac constellation.

        Total Lunar Eclipse of October 08 The second lunar eclipse of 2014 is also total and is best seen from the Pacific Ocean and bordering regions. The eclipse occurs at the Moon’s descending node in southern Pisces, two days after perigee (October 06 at 09:41 UT). This means that the Moon will appear 5.3% larger than it did during the April 15 eclipse (32.7 vs. 31.3 arc-minutes).

        Partial Solar Eclipse of October 23 the final event of 2014 occurs at the Moon’s ascending node in southern Virgo. Although it is only a partial solar eclipse, it is of particular interest because the event is widely visible from Canada and the USA (Figure 4).

        Spica is believed to be the star that provided Hipparchus with the data that enabled him to discover precession of the equinoxes.[9] A temple to Menat (an early Hathor) at Thebes was oriented with reference to Spica when it was constructed in 3200 BC, and, over time, precession resulted in a slow but noticeable change in the location of Spica relative to the temple.[10]

          SS: nasa released new video with the k1 Panstarrs comet which was discovered in 2012 .. i have been watching k1 Panstarrs  to see how it is developing since about march but i haven’t been talking about it .. at least until now .. the comet will reach closest point to the sun in august 2014. k1 panstarrs is not a sungrazer only reaching about 1 au from the sun. that puts it outside the orbit of mercury (0.387 au) and venus (0.723 au). however it’s development does show a good show in telescopes but it is not a great comet.. as can see from nasa’s starmap the k1 Panstarrs will enter into the beehive crown this summer . the above 29 april 2014 starmap shows the k1 Panstarrs comet swarm and the solar eclipse.

          SS: nasa also talks about a possible surprise meteor shower next month .. if this happens then we will revisit it..however.. i want to talk about another storm right now and this storm is the comet swarm of 2014 that is coming together at the end of this year.. k1 Panstarrs is will stay bright after it’s perihelion likely into next year.. Siding Spring is going to make is near mars passage in october which the comar predicted to engulf all of  the planet mars .. and we still are debating what v5 Oukaimeden is going to do during its solar graze in september whether it will outburst and/or disintegrate or if it will round the sun and put on a show. we will talk more about Oukaimedan when it starts to arrive later this year.

          SS: 05-02-14 UPDATED: i have added another starmap for 02 May 2014 in which we can see that the moon has moved down along from the “Aries Zero Point” solar eclipse to pass near and align with the Oukaimedan comet in the Stargate Orion region. meanwhile Panstarrs passing near the M51 Whirlpool Galaxy in Canes Venatici while Siding Spring moving around in the furnace and river eradinus region .

          The Whirlpool Galaxy (also known as Messier 51a, M51a, or NGC 5194) is an interacting[6] grand-design[7] spiral galaxy with a Seyfert 2 active galactic nucleus[8] in the constellation Canes Venatici. Recently it was estimated to be 23 ± 4 million light-years from the Milky Way Galaxy,[3] but different methods yield distances between 15 and 35 million ly. Messier 51 is one of the best known galaxies in the sky.[9] The galaxy and its companion (NGC 5195) are easily observed by amateur astronomers, and the two galaxies may even be seen with binoculars.[10] The Whirlpool Galaxy is also a popular target for professional astronomers, who study it to further understand galaxy structure (particularly structure associated with the spiral arms) and galaxy interactions.

          PRAESAEPE A cluster of stars better known by the name the “Beehive Cluster”, or the Latin equivalent, Praesepe, which not only means a “hive” but also a “Manger”, or “Crib”. The name Beehive derives from the appearance of a swarm of stars in a dance of activity. In Orphic teaching, souls were symbolized by bees, not only because of the association with honey but also because they migrate from the hive in swarms, since it was held that souls ‘swarm’.

          Ancient Egyptians and the Constellations The Ancient Egyptians’ knowledge of geometry and Precession is clearly demonstrated on the Nermer Plate. The centre point is the tip of the White Leo/Gemini Crown. Line One is through the Club. Line Two bisects the Crown. This creates four angles each of 90 degrees. Line Three is the horizontal at the tip of the Crown. Line Four is the vertical through the tip of the Crown. Already the formation of angles of 30 degrees can be observed. The tip of the White Leo/Gemini Crown becomes a dot within a circle; the Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for Ra and the concept of Precession. It is the pinnacle of the Axis Munde around which the heavens appear to revolve. (See Part 5) A revolution through the heavens of twelve 30-degree segments can take one year or, in the case of Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac, 25920 years. The division of the heavens into twelve 30-degree segments gives the appearance of a starburst. A further division into 15-degree segments creates the 24-hour day.

            SS: an eclipse has happened in the aries zero point node .. it is called the zero point because it is the first point in the ecliptic which the sun and moon travel. zero point is also hyperdimensional etheric as in scalar physics the “zero point vaccum” is NO SPACE NO TIME in which the “scalar potential” vibrate.. aries is the altar in which the ram is sacrificed for it’s fleece. the siding spring comet is still in the furnace .

            SS: 05-03-14 UPDATE: wanted to update this blog so that we can remember that this giant crucifix collapsed just days prior to this solar eclipse .. and to show the location of the k1 panstarrs comet swarm during the eclipse. we can see the k1 panstarrs comet is near the whirlpool galaxy during the eclipse .

            That’s a bad sign: 100ft crucifix built in honour of John Paul II collapses and crushes a man to death just two days before he is declared a saint  24 April 2014 A young pilgrim has been crushed to death by a giant crucifix dedicated to Pope John Paul II. The 100ft curved wooden cross collapsed during a ceremony in northern Italy days before the former Pope’s canonisation. Marco Gusmini, 21, on a visit with other young Catholics to the Alpine village of Cevo, was killed instantly.

            First Point of Aries The Zero Degree Aries Point What is the ZERO Degree Aries Point? The Aries point, or vernal equinox in the tropical zodiac, is a NODE. It marks the place where the sun crosses the equatorial plain going north. Think of it as a Sun/earth node, as opposed to the Lunar nodes which involve the Sun/earth/Moon).

            Annular Solar Eclipse of April 29 The first solar eclipse of 2014 occurs at the Moon’s descending node in southern Aries. This particular eclipse is rather unusual because the central axis of the Moon’s antumbral shadow misses Earth entirely while the shadow edge grazes the planet. Classified as a non-central annular eclipse, such events are rare. Out of the 3,956 annular eclipses occurring during the 5,000-year period -2000 to +3000, only 68 of them or 1.7% are non-central (Espenak and Meeus, 2006).

An annular eclipse was visible from Antarctica and some areas in the southern Indian Ocean, with just a partial eclipse visible in Australia. It was one of just two solar eclipses in 2014.

              Of the 2014 Lunar Spica Eclipse

              SS: lunar eclipse near the precession star Spica has happened. i would like to point out the earthquake activity that happened within the one week earthquake window that i always give to eclipses. we are still in eclipse earthquake window until after the first week of May due to the upcoming solar eclipse in two weeks. we had some earthquake activity leading up to this eclipse sequence in los angeles area as well . it seems like lately every time some people go on a trip and return to LA an earthquake happens. i been thinking about trying that myself. 

              SS: i want to talk about those who fear eclipses and other celestial astral phenomena. in my opinion those who fear phenomena that has been in existence in this solar system long before man and his gods existed on this planet are those who are not tuned with the “soul of earth” . as an example: if a fighter jet flies over this should not be feared unless you are about to be bombed by it and one should only be bombed by it if they were an enemy .. if someone is an enemy to the “soul of earth” then they have some pretty serious problems/issues anyways (like low IQ’s and other white mass brain problems) . eclipses are not hateful that is a total ridiculousness used in propaganda by some people to promote their own agendas.

              Spica is believed to be the star that provided Hipparchus with the data that enabled him to discover precession of the equinoxes.[9] A temple to Menat (an early Hathor) at Thebes was oriented with reference to Spica when it was constructed in 3200 BC, and, over time, precession resulted in a slow but noticeable change in the location of Spica relative to the temple.[10]

              Total Lunar Eclipse of April 15 The first eclipse of the year is well placed for observers throughout the Western Hemisphere. The eclipse occurs at the lunar orbit’s ascending node in Virgo. The apparent diameter of the Moon is close to its average since the eclipse occurs nearly midway between apogee (April 08 at 14:53 UT) and perigee (April 23 at 00:28 UT). This is the first of four consecutive total lunar eclipses in 2014 and 2015 (see Lunar Eclipse Tetrads).

              The moon is shown in its final eclipse early Tuesday morning from Los Angeles, California April 15, 2014. The lunar eclipse will unfold over three hours, when the moon begins moving into Earth’s shadow, and will be shrouded in a red glow when fully eclipsed.

                SS: april 15th will start the first eclipse sequence of 2014. it will start with a lunar eclipse near the precession star spica. following two weeks from the lunar eclipse will be a solar eclipse in aries which i have called “the siding spring furnace solar eclipse” due to it being at closest point to the siding spring comet still in the furnace where it has been for the last few months.

                SS: this eclipse sequence is a precession sequence. the lunar eclipse near spica followed by the first point of aries. the sun will cross the ecliptic at this point. it the called the zero point since it is the first starting point of the precession.

                SS: when siding spring makes it’s close passage to mars later this year in october what we might want to watch for is dust storms caused by impacts from cometary debris.  if the coma will envelop mars as mars express is expecting then maybe is possible cometary debris impacts into mars.

                Total Lunar Eclipse of April 15 The first eclipse of the year is well placed for observers throughout the Western Hemisphere.

This is the first of four consecutive total lunar eclipses in 2014 and 2015 (see Lunar Eclipse Tetrads).

                Annular Solar Eclipse of April 29 The first solar eclipse of 2014 occurs at the Moon’s descending node in southern Aries. This particular eclipse is rather unusual because the central axis of the Moon’s antumbral shadow misses Earth entirely while the shadow edge grazes the planet. Classified as a non-central annular eclipse, such events are rare. Out of the 3,956 annular eclipses occurring during the 5,000-year period -2000 to +3000, only 68 of them or 1.7% are non-central (Espenak and Meeus, 2006).

                Hubble Sees Mars-Bound Comet Sprout Multiple Jets March 27, 2014: Comet Siding Spring is plunging toward the Sun along a roughly 1-million-year orbit. The comet, discovered in 2013, was within the radius of Jupiter’s orbit when the Hubble Space Telescope photographed it on March 11, 2014. Hubble resolves two jets of dust coming from the solid icy nucleus. These persistent jets were first seen in Hubble pictures taken on Oct. 29, 2013. The feature should allow astronomers to measure the direction of the nucleus’s pole, and hence, rotation axis. The comet will make its closest approach to our Sun on Oct. 25, 2014, at a distance of 130 million miles, well outside Earth’s orbit. On its inbound leg, Comet Siding Spring will pass within 84,000 miles of Mars on Oct. 19, 2014, which is less than half the Moon’s distance from Earth. The comet is not expected to become bright enough to be seen by the naked eye.

                Mars Express team readies for Siding Spring 02/07/2014 While we know the comet will not hit Mars, nor our spacecraft, Mars Express, initial observation data lead us to expect that the coma (the cloud of dust particles surrounding the comet’s nucleus) will be big enough to envelop Mars and therefore the spacecraft orbiting it.

                First Point of Aries The Zero Degree Aries Point What is the ZERO Degree Aries Point? The Aries point, or vernal equinox in the tropical zodiac, is a NODE. It marks the place where the sun crosses the equatorial plain going north. Think of it as a Sun/earth node, as opposed to the Lunar nodes which involve the Sun/earth/Moon).

                  Total Solar Eclipse of November 3 The hybrid eclipse of 2013 is visible from within a thin corridor, which traverses the North Atlantic and equatorial Africa. A partial eclipse is seen within the much broader path of the Moon’s penumbral shadow, which includes eastern North America, northern South America, southern Europe, the Middle East and Africa (Figure 5).

                  MAYAN BEE GOD The Bee image of a flying god has to be related to a stinging element. Ophiuchus has a blocky appearance with a pointed roof. It has two extra areas on each side where the radishes appear to fit. The area on the left stretches out into the Milky Way, just about where there is a break in the star formation. It gives the appearance of bees either coming or going from a hive. The two places that use a bee-god image most prominently are near the sea coast at Tulum, and in the Mississippi area of the US.
