Winter Solstice December 21, 2008

Marking the Winter Solstice from Ellie's World ... 3:00 PM.

Everything below the bridge looks sepia toned as if from the past, frozen in time.

I took these photos after my radio show "Ellie's World" about the winter solstice and 2012.

Refracted light on the right, looks like a Black Hole. (See Photos)

As with Stonehenge, Newgrange, as the days grow longer,
the angle of the sun through the arches of the Verrazano Bridge
will change, returning to this position on December 21, 2009.

This week, Trae, the Admin of Crystalinks, is working in Las Vegas and

sent this photo of snow in December - part of Earth's climate changes.

Ongoing coronal mass ejections (CME's) reach Earth ----> effect planetary magnetics ----> shifting ocean and jet stream currents in the Ring of Fire ----> creating unusual and extreme weather patterns around the world ----> creating unstoppable Earth changes and affecting the behavioral patterns of all sentient life forms.

Magnetic-Shield Cracks Found; Big Solar Storms Expected    National Geographic - December 17, 2008
An unexpected, thick layer of solar particles inside Earth's magnetic field suggests there are huge breaches in our planet's solar defenses. These breaches indicate that during the next period of high solar activity, due to start in 2012, Earth will experience some of the worst solar storms seen in decades.

Leaks Found in Earth's Protective Magnetic Field    Live Science - December 17, 2008
Scientists have found two large leaks in Earth's magnetosphere, the region around our planet that shields us from severe solar storms. The leaks are defying many of scientists' previous ideas on how the interaction between Earth's magnetosphere and solar wind occurs: The leaks are in an unexpected location, let in solar particles in faster than expected and the whole interaction works in a manner that is completely the opposite of what scientists had thought.

A Giant Breach in Earth's Magnetic Field    NASA - December 16, 2008
NASA's five THEMIS spacecraft have discovered a breach in Earth's magnetic field ten times larger than anything previously thought to exist. Solar wind can flow in through the opening to "load up" the magnetosphere for powerful geomagnetic storms. But the breach itself is not the biggest surprise. Researchers are even more amazed at the strange and unexpected way it forms, overturning long-held ideas of space physics.

Sunspots and the Rise and Fall of Civilizations
Maurice Cottrell

There appears to be a correlation between the rise and fall of civilizations with the rise and fall of radiation from the sun. The graph shows a long-term envelope of sunspot activity derived from the center graph of Carbon 14. More carbon 14 is absorbed in the growth rings of tress during the sunspot minima. Sunspot minima also correlates with mini-ice ages and a winter severity index based on a mean for Paris and London - for the period shown. The Maya disappeared during a sunspot minimum.
