Supernova 2023ixf in M101, Taken by Eliot Herman on May 20, 2023 @ Tucson AZ


A DANGEROUS SUNSPOT: Growing sunspot AR3311 has an unstable ‘beta-gamma-delta’ magnetic field that harbors energy for strong solar flares. NOAA forecasters say there is a 75% chance of M-class flares and a 35% chance of X-flares on May 21st. Solar flare alerts: SMS Text.

SURPRISE GEOMAGNETIC STORM: Surprising forecasters, a crack opened in Earth’s magnetic field on May 19th. Solar wind poured through the gap, sparking a G2-class geomagnetic storm. Naked-eye auroras were visible across many northern-tier US states while photographic auroras descended as far south as Missouri (latitude +40.2N):

SUPERNOVA IN THE PINWHEEL GALAXY: Astronomers are scrambling to photograph a new

supernova in the Pinwheel Galaxy (M101). “This is best supernova in a decade,” says Eliot Herman of Tucson, Arizona. “I am pleased I caught it on the rise less than a day after its discovery.” The red arrow marks the brightening explosion.

This is a Type II supernova, caused by the core collapse of a massive star. If it behaves like other supernovas of the same type, it should continue to brighten for a few days at least. “It is at magnitude +14.4 at the moment,” says Herman. “I am betting it gets below +13, hoping for +12.”

These numbers make it an easy target for backyard telescopes. Discovered on May 19th by amateur astronomer Koichi Itagaki, the supernova is located in the constellation Ursa Major, right here. Take a look!

Ursa Major, (Latin: “Greater Bear”) also called the Great Bear, in astronomy, a constellation of the northern sky, at about 10 hours 40 minutes right ascension and 56° north declination. It was referred to in the Old Testament (Job 9:9; 38:32) and mentioned by Homer in the Iliad (xviii, 487). Source: Brittanica

Job 9: 1-13
1 Then Job replied: 2 “Indeed, I know that this is true. But how can mere mortals prove their innocence before God? 3 Though they wished to dispute with him, they could not answer him one time out of a thousand. 4 His wisdom is profound, his power is vast. Who has resisted him and come out unscathed? 5 He moves mountains without their knowing it and overturns them in his anger. 6 He shakes the earth from its place and makes its pillars tremble. 7 He speaks to the sun and it does not shine; he seals off the light of the stars. 8 He alone stretches out the heavens and treads on the waves of the sea. 9 He is the Maker of the Bear[a] and Orion, the Pleiades and the constellations of the south. 10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. 11 When he passes me, I cannot see him; when he goes by, I cannot perceive him. 12 If he snatches away, who can stop him? Who can say to him, ‘What are you doing?’ 13 God does not restrain his anger; even the cohorts of Rahab cowered at his feet.

A central message relates to the naivete of thinking that a ransom could be offered to end a war. There is no bargaining with the captor, when death was the intention from the beginning. If death is certain, the only Divine Answer is to offer our life to the Highest One for a Divine Cause.  ~ Debra

11 Night/AKBAL (Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA)

Descriptions by Ian Xel Lungold, 12 Sun/AHAU,

Galactic Tone 11: Resolution; 11 assists every new thing to find its place in the universe in the process of ‘fitting in.’ some modifications must occur. Eleven is the energy of dynamic actions facilitating change, simplification and improvement.

Night/Akbal: Bringers of the Dawn. Dreamers who bring the new sun to clarify and illuminate the road of life. Thus the insecurities and doubts born of darkness of the sub-conscious mind are dispelled. These persons travel the Void. a place where nothing yet exists but all potential dwells, the womb of creation. From this void, Night persons bring forth new solutions and artistic inspiration. Night’s voyages of dreams build confidence and happiness with a sense of well being. If night does not bravely journey into the void they may find themselves wandering the darkness of self doubt and insecurity.

A GOOD DAY TO: Spend some time contemplating the stars. 

Cherokee, Hearth/O’YA: Hearth’s symbol is the fire pit in the Center, velvet black as the night. The triangle in Orion. The M42 nebula (home of the Central race from the WingMakers) in the center of the triangle of Orion is the fire in the Hearth, also matching the Mayan. The Hearth is the Torchbearer who holds the light and warmth throughout the night. Belief is so strong that the surrounding elements become entrained to their rhythm and all resistance falls away. With respect and honor of intuition combined with knowledge this energy creates the magic of the center in this dimension. AKBAL-Night-Totem-OWL: Guardian of the Night Sun. Energies for the opening of mystic secrets, seeing through the masks of deception, trickery. High ability of discernment. Portals open to other worlds and dimensions for your learning and spiritual growth. Magical abilities are possible.

By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.
