Dr Phillips, I pursued this evening's sunset in consideration of the billows of smoke which are drifting across Europe and what caught my attention is the fact that two of my German shepherds had their nose pointed at a 45-degree angle and sniffing the air. The attached photo of the sunset is quite impressive as is the photo from earlier this week involving a distant summer home. Further details in relation to these two images are available at http://www.perseus.gr/Astro-Solar-Scenes-Oropos-07.htm and http://www.perseus.gr/Astro-Solar-Scenes-Oropos-08.htm . It will be interesting to see how this eruption develops, for many flights across Europe have been cancelled since volcanic ash is able to shut down airplane engines.

The ashes high in the sky from the vulcano-eruption on iceland, have reached europe. The sunset in Holland was more orange/red than under normal circumstances.

A lovely colourful sunset, possibly due to volcanic ash in the atmosphere with the stunning sight of Venus, Mercury and the crescent Moon. A great way to end the day!

A bit of a personal story here...

I had a recording session in my studio this week involving 3 musicians from the south of France. I had arranged to fly them in and out of Charleroi (Belgium) on dirt-cheap Ryanair and drive them to and from Amsterdam for an intense 3-day session.

Needless to say, there wasn't a lot of time for us to keep abreast of current events, and when I set off for Belgium yesterday to drop them at the airport, we were blissfully unaware of any problems. After a 3-hour hungover drive, I pull into Charleroi airport, and in the middle of thanking the guys for a great job and saying goodbye, a stranger walks up and asks if they were trying to fly out. I said yes, and he said the airport was closed because of a volcano...

I said, "You're joking, of course", but of course, he wasn't...

By then it was rush hour on the notorious Belgian highways, I'm just dying to get home and sleep for 12 hours, but I have 3 slightly disgruntled musicians on my hands who have to get home somehow. We decide to drive to Lille in the north of France where they have a friend they can stay with and then catch a train home today (500 euros for the 3 of them).

Despite the GPS thinking we wanted to go to Lille, Holland (which I didn't even know existed and added another hour detour), and the almost-running-out-of-gas incident (don't ask), I somehow managed to get them to Lille and my ass safely back home. Oh, did I mention that I had slept in my contact lenses the night before after the celebratory champagne?

Anyway, so far this volcano has cost me several hundred euros and a good portion of my remaining sanity while probably slightly endangering my life, even...

But luckily, it didn't happen 4 days ago, which would have been a complete disaster. I've been planning this session for months; we made what I think is going to be a very good record, and the Frenchies sent me a text today saying they had a great time in Lille last night, so all's well that ends well, I guess...

It is funny though, I wasn't exactly expecting a volcano would affect my day so drastically, and in the larger sense, I'm sort of awestruck that the things we take so lightly and for granted can be so easily nullified by Nature.

Ha ha, puny humans and their little plans, ha ha...

BTW, it sure was a beautiful sunset on the drive home, and not a contrail (or chem-trail for that matter) to be seen....
Where's the beer and when do I get paid?

As the huge plume of ash and steam from Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull volcano blew east-southeast, threatening to ground aircraft along its track, a NASA satellite captured the cloud in action.
The natural-color image was taken by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's Terra satellite on April 15. The plume was just blowing past the Faroe Islands, which lie northwest of Scotland and halfway between Iceland and Norway. Then it arced slightly toward the north near the Shetland Islands, off the northeastern coast of Scotland.
The colors didn't just make for a pretty picture, as the tan hues indicated there was a fairly high ash content in the plume.
Unlike the soft, fluffy material that results from burned vegetation, volcanic ash contains tiny jagged particles of rock, which can be dangerous for aircraft. Once sucked into an airplane's turbines, the abrasive material can easily cause engine failure, though an aircraft's weather radar can't spot the ash.
While the eruption has made itself known, the volcano is also quite a presence, rising some 5,466 feet (1,666 meters) above sea level. The volcano began erupting for the first time in 190 years on March 20, 2010. The eruption opened a 2,000-foot (500-meter) fissure, and also produced lava fountains that built several hills of bubble-filled lava rocks along the vent. The second eruption began on Wednesday.

STOCKHOLM AND REST OF THE NORTH EUROPE IS BOMBED BY VOLCANO ASH
:nails: :nails: :nails:



jet-black cloud rising from the glacier

Tonight is expected volcanic glacier Eyjafjallajökull vomit out column of ashes of up to 9 000 feet.
Swedish Annika Rosén live right on the foot of the glacier.
- The neighbors have begun taping windows and doors again to ashes should not get into, "she says.

Eyjafjallajökull shows no signs of declining volcanic activity but instead have begun to throw up the column of ashes. Annika Rosen lives with her husband and four children on a farm in Hoslvelli, which is right on the glacier. She says the big black cloud now rising from the volcano glacier.
- It is pitch black thick cloud that rises from the glacier. The neighbors have begun taping windows and doors again to ashes not be able to enter. We have advised the government bought the mask of ash would start raining down on us, "she says.

Worried about rain showers
According to Norwegian Verdens Gang online Eyjafjallajökull will continue to throw out the column of ashes as high as 9 000 meters during the night of Saturday.
Annika Rosen says she is most worried about possible rain showers.
- We now hope that the winds do not turn to ash rains over us, because then it becomes dangerous for both humans and animals

its happening left right and center. Iceland, Australia, Chile..exactly how many natural disasters has there been so far this year? Volcano ash covering Europe and everyone is just going about their business, not caring. I dont know if its the beginning of the end or just the beginning of a cosmic cycle that we are all gonna have to bare witness to. But I do believe that people need to be aware of these goings on. I find it fascinating and exciting abut it makes me sick that the majority of people don't, their fascinated by their jobs...their social status..what other people think of them, they don't think for themselves.

I only wish I be more involved in what is happening to our planet.
It gives me goosebumps, love it!

any similar feelings message me - freemind
