August the triumphant*…

The eighth month is here!

August…

This August begins with a Black Super New Moon in Leo. The first of two in this month [second New Moon is on the 31st].
This triggered a special illustration for this day:
My “Peridot Eight” revised for this Black Super New Moon.

It is also a month rich in meteor showers. Kappa Cygnids, Alpha Capricornids, the Southern Delta Aquariids and the Perseids [some from mid July already]. Also, for us admirers of the night sky, the star cluster of Messier 30 is best observed this month.

*Named in honor of Augustus as the time of several of his great triumphs.

Enjoy August, everyone!

  1. OMG! It was just July. Is July latin for running by? Just kidding, but August better go by more slowly.
    Have lots of fun with Hera this month! Will she howl at the new moons?

  2. The Super Moon reminds me of two things: 1) how Marina Kanavaki eclipses all other painters, and 2) how when I eat a dish of ambrosia, in a matter of minutes all that’s left is a big black hole in the bottom of the dish… 🎨🏆🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚🍨🌚😋💥🚑👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽😊
