Cool and neat :)

Thanks Ippa - Sure is a packed house astrology-wise! Along with the moon, the bright one is Venus, and in original size, you can see Mars and Saturn.

And you'd be the one to know the answer to the question I had looking at these all: These all seem to physically be in Virgo, since Spica was off to the left of the moon, and another Virgo star directly above Mars. What house does astrology say they're all in now?

Ritva Astikainen on August 14, 2010

Hi Bitsy :) I'm not an astrologer ;) but I know there are many different house systems in astrology. Almost all of them start with the Ascendant - that's your "Rising Star". Here you can make your own birth chart if you know your exact time and place you was born. I prefer the sidereal charts as they are nearer the real than tropical charts ;) Ippa

Very beautiful shot Bitsy.

Bits-n-Pieces on August 16, 2010

Thanks Ippa! I never knew there were different systems. But being a Virgo, it was interesting to stand there looking at all those planets and the moon spread out across the constellation.

Thanks Laurel! It was one of those absolutely perfect evenings. Perfect temps, a great low tide to walk out on, and so clear for this little sky show. You must have had some great views of this out on the farm, too!

Great shot Bitsy your friend k must have been quite envious of your last couple of shots. A Like from me and favs.

Ritva Astikainen on August 16, 2010

Wink wink Bitsy,, IF you are a Virgo in Tropical/western astrology, you are a Lion in SideREAL :) You can count it easily so, that in real the sun and all the planets etc. asteroids... are in the previous sign. Ippa

Don't know about all that fancy astrology lingo but I like the photo.

Hi ernest - you're wasting your clicks on my page. I never click the contest photos of anyone who just shows up on my page when they're obviously only pushing their own photos in the Panoramio 'who can get the most clicks?' contest.

I am Saggitarius with Libra rising, and the moon in my 5th house. Evidently the correct astrological planetary alignments to push a VOTE button :)))

Amelia Royan on September 15, 2010

Where's the like button gone?

Bits-n-Pieces on September 16, 2010

LOLOL Amelia - Thanks! (and I wonder if the button disappeared in one of the formatting glitches I seem to get about every-other page I click these days. I don't think they go away, though sometimes I sure wish they would, or would at least change into something with a little more panache than a wimpy 'like' !

Amelia Royan on September 16, 2010

Well the whole kit and caboodle went into a nose-dive last night, just after the dreaded like button disappeared. Shut down time was called for.

It is all back to 'normal' this morning so you have a wimpy 'like' as well :)
