low-budget-witches: With the upcoming winter weather for the Northern Hemisphere you fellow witches with seasonal depression or who tend to get down in the dumps during winter here are few ways to clean off all that negativity (and have fun doing it). Now all of these are personally my own ideas that help me whenever Im really down so I want to share these with you guys! Before I continue please make sure you know what you can and cant put on your skin. When it comes to essential oils…
Massive solar flare creates solar storm of charged particles, which are pummeling the Earth right now. Might only mean killer Northern Lights, or could knock out communications satellites. Either way, would you look at this amazing photo and try not to say, "Wow"?
"We're just right on the line," Jim Todd, OMSI's director of space science education said. "People could be looking right at the lights and not even know it because it's very faint and...not all that obvious."In addition to city lights obscuring the lights, a waning gibbous moon that rises at 9:39 p.m. Friday will further hamper the view."It's either going to happen or not," Todd said.
"Come winter, everything in Iceland turns white, diverting your eyes to the bright wooden houses and the subtle changes in the sky. The weather may or may not be treacherous, but where you go and what you can do is more limited. You can, however, ride horses in the snow, ski and snowmobile, see the Northern Lights at their best, soak in hot springs whilst thumbing your nose at the cold, and experience Iceland at its iciest."

Sun gets jump on fireworks with July 3 solar flare eruption
Sun gets jump on fireworks with July 3 solar flare eruption. The solar flare erupted at about 3 a.m. EDT & produced an M1.5-class solar flare. M-class solar flares are medium-strength solar storms that can supercharge Earth's northern lights displays when they are aimed at Earth. NASA officials reported that the July 3 solar flare erupted from a point just over the eastern side, or limb, of the sun, so it was not directed at our planet.
Not all new wave customs are fair weather bikes. This long, low Honda CB350 K4 comes from inside the Arctic Circle—or, to be more precise, from the small city of Rovaniemi in Lapland, northern Finland. The average annual temperature is a smidge above zero °C, and there’s snow on the ground for 175 days a year. That didn’t deter industrial design student Timo Karinen though. He worked on the bike in a friend’s warehouse—heated, we hope—and fabricated the metal in a workshop at his university.
