Today I’m working on the July Skywatch article, so watch for that to be posted tomorrow as well.
Meanwhile, I found covering the attack of one galaxy by its neighbor that sounded eerily apropo of what is happening in the middle east, including this quote:
When galaxies interact, it’s never a pretty picture. But it can be a source of rebirth and renewal. The tidal forces between galaxies cause huge clouds of gas and dust to compact, creating nurseries of giant, hot stars….
Life is not easy, even for galaxies. Some indeed get so close to their neighbours that they get rather distorted. But such encounters between galaxies have another effect: they spawn new generations of stars.
This is the lesson of Pluto and transformation if we can maintain a longer view when confronted with stress and tension.
