Sunrise Surprise: POP (PinkyOrangePurple) Clouds Create Colourful Cruscendo

I think I was awake before and/or around the sunrise yesterday, but didn’t bother watching it as another clear morning was forecast, and I’d seen and photographed a similar one the previous day. This morning I was expecting cloud, so didn’t expect any ‘sunrise’. I got up just after 8am anyway, having first woken a while before, and dozed. The first thing I saw was this POP (PinkyOrangePurple) sky!

The moral of the story might be ‘the early bird catches the worm’, but that’s usually meant to support the benefits of diligence, eagerness and hard work!

In this respect it was more about luck, unless the sun did wake me up for it! So it is more in line with greenYgreyism; or its predecessor, a grey area!!

I’m not promoting laziness either. I’d happily wake up for the sunrise every day of the year if I had reason: such as it being my job. My ‘greenYgrey’ attitude for me reflects interest in it.

I’m doing it for the public good as I see it; promoting the sky is there for everyone, and can be a mood booster, especially for people who have SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).

However, I am promoting my writing and my point of view (literally and metaphorically!) too: scientific agnostic paganism; so thanks to everybody who reads, learns and enjoys; and also those who read and tolerate without too much hate!

Most ‘celebrities’ and ‘influencers’ do it much more, or have people do it for them, but most people don’t do it at all!

Sunrise Surprise Subsides

As the sun rose and POP colours subsided I took some of that, and cropped some for close-ups. That’s the only editing; there’s none on the colours:

Then the sky started to turn blue:

Sky colour science on Wikipedia.

My books where POP (PinkyOrangePurple) was discovered (as a sky arts concept) accidentally, coinciding with the travel quest for the greenYgrey world’s pop artist, Andy Wolfhol.

Leeds Sunrise Month After Midwinter

There was a nice sunrise yesterday morning, mistYmuse midpoint for the 2019/20 event, as midwinter and the spring equinox are on the 20th.

There was probably a similar one this morning, but the sun rose without waking me today! Consecutive days may make me seem too much of a sun worshipper anyway!!

Sunset Photos to Celebrate mistYmuse 2019/20 Midpoint

The December solstice was on the 20th last year, and March equinox is on the 20th too, so this could be said to be the midpoint of mistYmuse 2019/20, celebrating the most ideal sunrise times in the northern hemisphere, starting a month before midwinter; possibly the world’s longest festival?

There was an exceptional sunset in Scotland last night according to this article. It does well to include orange and purple with red, but there’s no pink(y) to complete the POP (PinkyOrangePurple) set!

Star Poem: Proxima Centauri

I wanna be* Proxima Centauri
cos it looks really starry
somewhere new to be
away from humanity.
Nearest neighbour to our sun
a little star sibling having fun
nothing new to learn
just turn, turn, turn…

*Anarchy in the UK opening by Sex Pistols – inspiration then, not now!

Some great pretty gYgPOP (Warhol etc inspired greenYgrey PinkyOrangePurple) post-Impressionist (Turner etc) art and informative explanations make this exciting astronomical discovery pleasurable escapist reading – sure wish I could go there! Setting off today…!!

Sunrise Between Storms

The mistYmuse obviously hadn’t cleared out of my mind when I posted yesterday, as metal isn’t a shenel word, as eta isn’t a word; they (it and death) do both contain the letters E-A-T.

Ironically, I realised while awake, but not long after a nap, in late afternoon. I didn’t have the corrective information when I awoke, but I don’t know if the nap primed it, like disk cleaning/defragging a computer!?

Calm Before (and after) the Storm

There was another nice sunrise this morning, which is now at 08.17 in Leeds, seven minutes earlier than its latest time of 08.24; still quite convenient for most people’s commute though. Next week, the 21st, will of course be the very exciting midpoint of mistYmuse; about a month after midwinter in the northern hemisphere.

You can see there is a big difference in colours to the blue sky one four days ago, supporting what I’ve seen a lot of people who spend a lot of time in the countryside say, or on the same travel route: that there is something different to see every day in the same place, as the light/weather is always changing.

More Than Meets the Eye Wordplay

There is more to mE
that mEEts the EYE
my ol’ greenYgrey friend Y
without it I cannot flY.

Little letterology wordplay on the ‘more to me than meets the eye‘ idiom, with relevance to the letter emerging in the Greenygrey/greenYgrey vegetarian werewolf travel quest¬† concept over a decade of writing with it as the central theme/icon/concept.

A recent totally (oceans apart!) unrelated (as far as I know!) science story about a mysterious humming noise heard around the world had an image showing how that might have happened:

I posted the world hum story on Facebook three days ago.

Blue Sky Sunrise and Earth – Waltzer ride Analogy

Just over a decade after my winter sunrises video there was a similar sunrise to the one featured mostly in that video this morning. As you can see, the sun now looks a little more northerly (to the left as you look at it), and it continues in that direction now until midsummer, moving from a southern-facing window to an eastern-facing one.

Because of the Earth’s tilt, in northern hemisphere’s winter, it’s as if we’re a human lying back looking out over ourselves, just able to see something above our body. In the summer, it’s as if we’re sitting up, and can see the same object much easier. Our planet is kind of like being on a Waltzer ride: https://youtu.be/RPMLRgKWefs

Not so misty for mistYmuse 2019/20 (#mYm2020), but nice and relevant nonetheless!
