The Green Comet w Capella Oct 20 2010

COMET 103P/HARTLEY AT ITS BEST:

For backyard stargazers, the next few nights are the best time to see green Comet 103P/Hartley 2 as it approaches Earth for an 11-million-mile close encounter on Oct 20. Set your alarm for the dark hours before dawn, go outside, and look straight up. You will find Hartley 2 not far from the bright star Capella.

Although the comet is barely visible to the unaided eye, it is easy to locate using binoculars and looks great through a backyard telescope. Sky maps and more information may be found at SpaceWeather News.

Lovely Capella! Alpha Auriga in the constellation of The Charioteer, this Fixed Star has a nurturing yet free-spirited flavor and is associated with the ‘fertile goddess’ archetype which links to the horse by way of Macha, the great Celtic horse goddess. She embodies movement and action and is connected by paran to the natal chart of aviatrix Amelia Earhart.

Airplanes may be said to be modern-day ‘chariots’ and with Capella associated with Earhart’s natal Venus, she is seen as a woman (Venus) breaking speed records, and was known for her love of the freedom of flight.

Other Capella-linked examples are astronaut John Glenn (Saturn) and comic book hero Superman who was created with his Mars rising with Capella! With Capella there is need for freedom and independence, and must I say it? A need for speed.

So look up! Superman may just be on the way to save the day…it’s a bird, it’s a plane, etc…

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
