I’ve been less enthused about making necklaces this year. I’m not sure exactly why.
As I was punching out circles for another design last night, this crescent shape appeared.
As it caught my eye, I immediately realized just how drawn I am to the shape. Which is surprising for me since I tend to find cliché symbols uninteresting.
It made me take a moment to refresh my knowledge of the symbolic nature of the crescent. Within two paragraphs it was clear. Just about every group if humans has attached deep meaning to the form.
Most tend toward the ideas of fertility, regeneration and our shared humanity. Which makes perfect sense. As modern ‘culture’ removes itself ever further from nature, it’s important to be reminded that all humans who have and will ever exist do so under the same lunar forces and trepidation around the darkness of night. ———————————————————-

Hey y’all, @codysumter here again. This time with a favorite photo I took during the total solar eclipse last year in Oregon. If you missed this last one you can always join us in South America next July for a repeat! 100% worth it. :) The minute leading up to totality is so incredibly eerie. Like a vivid dusk where nothing looks quite right. Then everything goes dark yet you can see the glow of sunrise in every direction. When you look back up you see this glowing ring around a black hole in the sky. The corona (sun's atmosphere). As you look you start to realize that it has structure. That the glowing ring isn't uniform, but is made up of streams and filaments. They almost look like wings. I did my best to tease out that structure so you could see it and reveal some of the earthshine on the moon.

"Ghost Photographer" -- Was thumbing through some images from @willardsharp 's night skies workshop back in September and came across this image. Since the moon as big and bright as you can see, I decided to play around a bit that night and not just shoot the sky. As I was playing around that night, I managed to capture one of the participants adjusting her settings, which produced a cool "ghost" image of her.

Bryce Canyon is a worthy destination to learn about and enjoy the splendor of the night sky. Far from the light pollution of civilization, protected by a special force of park rangers and volunteer astronomers to guide you, Bryce Canyon is a sanctuary for natural darkness. ( No warp drive needed.)

Well, we are lost for words 😍💫 Just when you thought Wave Rock in Hyden couldn't get any better, visiting it at night is a completely different experience! The star-filled outback skies enhance the amazing 15-metre high wave, making the rock the perfect spot to lay down, relax, and star gaze into the night 🌟 📷 @travel_herethere 📍 Wave Rock, Hyden, @WheatbeltWay@WesternAustralia@Australia
