Solar Eclipse 2015 – The View from Europa! Smile

     

 

                                            View from Europa

 

                    The view from Europa was somewhat better than the view from Earth…. that view was pretty rubbish Winking smile

In fact the view from Earth left an awful lot to be desired….

                                              View from Earth-Rubbish!

A slight change in the shade of grey might possibly have been considered an eerie solar eclipse light… And at least one or two pretty cool Wolfie Herr Selfies resulted from the moment of eerie lightness….and what might possibly have been considered a change in the wind direction…as to the predicted drop in temperature – given that it was already sub zero no shivering icewolf would have noticed the 3 degree difference.

The solar eclipse was also responsible for the “super-tide” –that afflicted UK, Earth – “the tide of the century!”.  The rare alignment of the Moon, Sun and Earth resulting in a giant gravitational pull on the sea. This created high tides leading to UK-wide flood warnings , It also led to the River Thames in London bursting its banks. Coastline flood warnings and typical cold, wet and windy British weather is now expected to last all week long Smile 

Full Wolf Moon–January 5th 2015   21 comments

The Wolf Moon rising at 17:15 – 5th January 2015, for the one and only time this New year, is the first full moon following the winter solstice. In a little touch of moon wolf magic the 2015 Wolf Moon also coincides with the arrival of Earth at the closest point to the sun that it is possible for it to reach in its orbit (perihelion).

Earth stands just 91.4 million miles from the sun, at this point and consequently the full moon burns brighter than even the Europan Ice Wolves on their frozen world of ice…

The Wolf Moon has also come to mark the start of a long year of stargazing.

January is the only month of the year when Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn can be viewed without a telescope. And if you look very carefully in the magic of the moonlight and maybe wish upon a star you may see the flash of the moon wolves of icy Europa…moon of Jupiter….if you’re really quiet you may here the call of the wolf-song across the star-ways of time and space…the moon-song of the star-born of Europa….

Happy New Year 2015 from the Ice-wolves of Europa!

Ultimate Wolfie Herr Selfies!   46 comments

Hazardous Days Of

Wolfie Herr Selfie Creations! Smile

“Freaked-out, Shock-Horror Wolfie Herr Selfie,” Life can be very Herr-y (Hairy) at times…The taking of a top-quality, prize winning  Wolfie Herr Selfie can be a truly herr-raising and frankly quite terrifying experience…. It frequently leads to the likes of the “Freaked-out, Shock-Horror Wolfie Herr Selfie,” is entirely the fault of the camera, and is totally impossible to correct with even the most sophisticated photo-editing software available Smile

“Underexposed, Green-eyed monster Wolfie Herr Selfie”On many inexplicable occasions there is no accounting for the behaviour of the camera’s wide variety of Exposure modes. The “Underexposed, Green-eyed monster Wolfie Herr Selfie” has become an increasingly common problem, particularly for DSLR camera owners. That said, if you’re smart enough to get to grips with one of these mind-blowingiy complex contraptions then you really ought to be smart enough to know better than to attempt a Wolfie Herr Selfie in the first place Winking smile

 “Herr Dryer-Distortion Extrordinaire Wolfie Herr Selfie,”It’s also very well advised to switch off the hair dryer during the Wolfie Herr Selfie taking session…Drying your hair with one hand whilst taking a Wolfie Herr Selfie just doesn’t work… All too often it leads to the “Herr Dryer-Distortion Extraordinaire Wolfie Herr Selfie,” and nobody really wants to be sporting the “Dragged through a hedge backwards” (UK saying for the benefit of the US and European viewers) look Smile

“Herr Wolfie Through the Looking Glass Wolfie Herr Selfie.” When attempting to take a semi-respectable Wolfie Herr Selfie it is generally best not to try taking it through a Europan Ice berg….it really isn’t a good look…and neither is the resulting “Tufty-eared, Sphereised Wolfie Herr Selfie…” just because you have a fancy camera sporting a massive, over-sized zoom lens doesn’t mean you have to let the camera create a “Herr Wolfie Through the Looking Glass Wolfie Herr Selfie.” Open-mouthed smile (Remember it’s always the fault of the camera when things go wrong; which of course they do – frequently… !)

“3-D Squashed-In Nose Wolfie Herr Selfie”How wrong a Wolfie Herr Selfie can go is, to a point, a matter of dubious personal opinion. For example some Selfie-takers may, questionably, be seriously impressed by their camera’s previously unknown ability to take Wolfie Herr Selfies in 3-D… The “3-D Squashed-In Nose Wolfie Herr Selfie” certainly has some unique qualities all of its own. Naturally this is on the equally questionable assumption that you haven’t in fact created a 3-D printed Icewolf on the quiet, on your very own, very secret 3-D Wolfie Printing machine….

“Solarised, Black Wolf of Mars Wolfie Herr Selfie”Even then things can still go a little “pear-shaped” (“horribly wrong” for those of European and US leanings 😉 ) Of course if you like the “Solarised, Black Wolf of Mars Wolfie Herr Selfie” look then you may well be thrilled and highly impressed by the above Wolfie Herr Selfie… otherwise you may find yourself glaring furiously into the camera lens wondering disconcertedly how, exactly, the Selfie Camera or possibly your 3-D Wolfie Printer, yet again took matters into its own settings, hands, paws… whatever!!!

“Snowy Sumi Super Wolfie Herr Selfie”Ultimately it’s probably best advised to give up on technology altogether when it comes to creating an effective Wolfie Herr Selfie…For those gifted characters blessed with the ability to exercise artistic creativity with paints and brushes a very pretty “Snowy Sumi Super Wolfie Herr Selfie” is an excellent look to aim for… and will show-case your enviable talents perfectly Smile

 “Ripply Icy Wolfie Herr Selfie” But for those who aspire only to the highly technical Wolfie Herr Selfie Camera or the 3-D Wolfie Printer, both of which, as everybody knows, have infuriating minds of their own and do whatsoever they please to a Wolfie Herr Selfie, exactly when they please, there is only one option left open when all else fails…Pot luck!!

Very, very occasionally, usually at the time of Full Moon when the skies are clear and a certain Full Moon madness is reigning, a lovely, “Ripply Icy Wolfie Herr Selfie” can occur, embracing the soft blending of moonlight over snow on the Ice-world of Europa, where the voice of the alien Icewolves howls the haunting song of the stars, echoing timelessly across the planetscape of their frozen world of Ice.

Breaking Dawn! Full Moon Rising!

Breaking Dawn! Catching even a hint of a glimpse of a Moon…any moon!…had fast become a distant memory … a legendary event howled about across the inter-space wolf-ways – “galactic gateways” between worlds… interstellar highways travelled by the star wolves, the callers of the moon song. Full Moon Hunt magic was all but lost, shrouded in the shadows of dark and threatening skies… overcast by angry clouds and the mysteries of the void.

Mystery of the Moon Wolves

So! It was nothing short of a miracle when, on the purchasing of a shiny new camera with a little more “kick” than the dinky digi-cam’ Smile … Wolfie padded out of the den at silly hour of the morning and greeted by this miraculous sight! >>> At the break of day… The Moon was dawning! It was the day before Full Moon…Wolfie was very late for work that morning!!

Europa's Moon-Ice Wolves

 

The view at late night silly hour the same day… such sightings are becoming a rarity of late so best to get as up close and personal with Earth’s one and only satellite (moon) as possible! Around the time of Full Moon is not a good time to try your paw at astropawtography because of the excessive light entering the camera lens at this time…but I wasn’t displeased with these results… And once you’ve got the results it’s always good to find ways to utilise them!

Know Me!!

The Wolf’s spirit burns bright as the fire of the sun.

And I saw my own heart…”

I looked through the eyes of a star-wolf…

And I saw cities in the sky, worlds beyond the stars

MoonWolves2A

I am She-Wolf! Alpha female of the Europa Pack,

And shining Guardian of the Wolf-Gates.

I am caller of the Moon-Wolves song

On a frozen world of ice.

The star-born of Europa, dream hunter, star chaser, “moon dog of your soul”.

KNOW ME!!

I am the burning heart of the Ice Wolves of Europa

And of the Fire Wolves of Io.

Wild, passionate and free!

The wolf spirit, burning as bright as the fire of the sun.

Caller of the MoonWolves Song

KNOW ME!!

I run with the moon and the stars

And I hunt in the winds of time.

I chase the streaming flow of the solar winds…

And across the icy seas of Europa, echo the call of an alien world.

KNOW ME!!

I am the heart and the spirit of ice and of fire…

I dance in the light of the sun by day,

And hunt under the power of stars by night….

I am the half-seen shadow that lingers behind your eyes….

I am the half-remembered wolf dreams….

Wolf-Shadow Dreams

KNOW ME!!

I am the most direct descendant of the original “Path Finder” –

The one known as “Star of the Celestial Wolf”.

I AM the Alpha-female!

The leader of Ice Wolves!

I am EUROPA’S ICE WOLF!!
