Have you ever viewed a meteor shower? I didn't realize they had names back when I was a kid, but every summer my brothers and I would grab our sleeping bags and sleep out on the porch so that we could watch the shooting stars. Such awe and beauty! I haven't been able to these past few years due to light pollution, but I hope to do so this year. Just to make you aware, there is a full moon near the August 13th peak viewing date that will diminish the view some. You may want to adjust your plans accordingly. Thank you to In-The-Sky.org for this information. God bless you this weekend! ❤☄🙌
Hope for all girlkind. Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space, was the only woman in our school library’s only book about astronauts. It was full of coloured pictures of rockets, moonwalkers, Gagarin, Armstrong and Kennedy. But on June 16, 1963, one woman went into space, and there she was, in the book. As a young girl, I borrowed that book so many times I think our amazing librarian stopped stamping it, and though the book is gone, the image of Valentina, and the colourful story of her tractor-factory background (she was a skydiver and textile factory worker), always filled me with hope. It started my fascination with space, the moon, science and astronomy, and is the beautiful counterpoint to my lifelong obsession with mythology, fantasy and magic, and their meaning to humans. Valentina flew on Vostok on 6 June, 1963. Her daughter, Elena Andrianovna Nikolaeva-Tereshkova, is the only person on earth with both a mother and father who flew in space. So Valentina, in the blaze of Apollo glory, you are not forgotten. Silver and turquoise Soviet space-era “meteor shower” brooch. Space jewellery exploded in this period, with everything from #hstern’s Sputnik rings to Björn Weckstrom’s space silver collection and #lalaounis Apollo earring for Jackie Kennedy. Image of Valentina from the book Apollo’s Muse. #1963#firstwomaninspace#valentinatereshkova#spacejewelry#silverbrooch#turquoisebrooch#saturdaysilver#vostok#cosmonaut#apollo11#apollo#moon#moonlanding#mymoonmonth#russian#russiansilver#silver#turquoise#brooch#broochaddict#moonstruck#vintagevampmoonmonth#vintage#meteorshower

🛸The government love affair with UFOs🛸
According to Luis Elizondo, there is a 450-page report on the AATIP research sitting somewhere in a safe in the US Department of Defense. That unreleased report is the alleged result of five years of scientific research on UFOs carried out by the Bigelow corporation and the DoD up to 2012.
It is just the most recent of a stream of official government studies (that we know about) dating back to the 1950s. Starting with the Sign Report and running through Blue Book, Robertson, Condon and now possibly AATIP in the US, and starting with two reports from the Flying Saucer Working Party and running through to Condign in 2000 for the British.
Almost all of them seem to have arrived at the conclusion that UFOs are of “no defence significance” but they rarely say whether they are of any other significance.
How many other governments have studied the subject? Are there other official reports in the public domain?

Extremely bright meteor crossing the Milky way core over Karagol Plateo, Turkey 🌌 Şu ana kadar gözlerimle şahit olduğum en büyük meteordu. O sıra çekime ara verdikten sonraki ilk kareyi alıyordum. Sabırsızlıkla fotoğrafa bakmak için bekledim ama lens kapağını o ara kapattığımı unutmuşum. Simsiyah kareyi görüp 15 saniyelik yıkılmanın ardından biraz ötede diğer kamerayla time lapse yaptığımı hatırladım. Neyse ki o kamerayla “o an”ı yakalamışız. #milkywaygalaxy#milkywayphotography#nightskies
