  • HEADS UP! There’s a good chance this #geostorm will be giving northern USA and Canada folks a treat: aurora borealis!

Northern and Southern Lights are caused by solar flares emitted from our own star. The winds (charged particles) hit Earth’s magnetic field and these two magnetic fields ionise, this creating the light display we all enjoy and photograph!

There’s a lot more technical information on how plasma, charges, bow shocks, and all that jazz create these displays. I encourage y’all to look more into it and read up on our relationship with the Sun.

With the geeky science out of the way, enjoy this image of our own G2V Main-Sequence Star ☀️ as it set along the Appalachian Trail in Virginia. I have solar glasses I plan to bring in my next thruhike.

  • There is something about being out there, in the middle of unique sounds that ironically, we're not so used to hearing anymore. Evolution has brought us to the point where we stand now in human history, yet, the amount of years we have spent surrounded by technology, artificial sounds and textures, smoke...basically, everything you'd encounter in a modern city, represents a very small number when compared to the number of years, we as a species, have spent on planet earth. But not everyone realizes the importance of being back in touch with the outdoors, and I honestly believe the benefits of this relationship will always be huge for us, human beings, and at the end of the day, it will also benefit her, pacha mama. Let's freaking get out there people! // Hay algo acerca de estar ahí afuera, en medio de sonidos únicos que, irónicamente, ya no estamos tan acostumbrados a escuchar. La evolución nos ha llevado al punto en el que nos encontramos ahora en la historia de la humanidad, sin embargo, la cantidad de años que hemos pasado rodeados de tecnología, sonidos y texturas artificiales, humo y contaminación ... básicamente, todo lo que se puede encontrar en una ciudad moderna, representa un número muy pequeño en comparación con el número de años que nosotros, como especie, hemos pasado en el planeta tierra. Pero no todos se dan cuenta de la importancia de volver a estar en contacto con la vida al aire libre, y sinceramente creo que los beneficios de esta relación siempre serán inmensos para nosotros, los seres humanos, y al final del día, también la beneficiarán a ella, pacha mama. ¡Vamos para el monte pues familia!
