Another great pic from APoD:
 
Eclipse at Moonrise

As the Moon rose and the Sun set on October 8, a lunar eclipse was in progress seen from Chongqing, China. Trailing through this composite time exposure, the rising Moon began as a dark reddened disk in total eclipse near the eastern horizon. Steadily climbing above the populous city's colorful lights along the Yangtze River, the moontrail grows brighter and broader, until a bright Full Moon emerged from the Earth's shadow in evening skies. Although lunar eclipses are not always total ones, this eclipse, along with last April's lunar eclipse, were the first two of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, a series known as a tetrad. The final two eclipses of this tetrad will occur in early April and late September 2015.

Too cloudy here (in DC) last night to see the lunar eclipse. Resorting to photos from England:
The event, known as a 'Tetrad', illuminated the moon a vibrant red across the United States and in South America. The rare astrological phenomenon is believed by some to mark the beginning of significant events.

Will this winter never end??? Looking forward to the start of "spring" tomorrow.
I am a writer. I use writing to simplify my life. I spend my days writing, but somehow I still need to write about it, so you'll see a lot here about my writing projects and publishing efforts. I have a lot of interests beyond writing...photography, yoga, gardening, books I've read, travel.

Today on Complexity Simplified...Yoga Monday: Let it Be.
It is snowing. Again. I took this photo about ten minutes ago, and the flakes are still coming down. The weather service says this will continue for several more hours. It's about 18 degrees Fahrenheit out there, and expected to drop even further, to around 8 degrees by tomorrow morning.

Truly weird science...!
 
Despite extensive analysis, Fermi bubbles defy explanation
From Phys.org: Scientists from Stanford and the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have analyzed more than four years of data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, along with data from other experiments, to create the most detailed portrait yet of two towering bubbles that stretch tens of thousands of light-years above and below our galaxy. The bubbles, which shine most brightly in energetic gamma rays, were discovered almost four years ago… Read more:

Oops. Wrote and posted this on my blog a few days ago...forgot to give link here. Better do so while it's still March!
We're about to close out the month of March in a few days and with April right around the corner, I've started to think about writing conferences. In trying to decide if I will go to any this year, I've needed to consider all the other obligations in my life, as well as the intent of each ...
