A year ago yesterday the photos below were taken, and comparing them to photos earlier in the week started the ancient astronomical angle to the mistYmuse.

caught crepuscular rays weave winged words
I have proposed POP theory;
think I’ve proved sunrise can be pinky,
but it is for others to study it rigorously.
There was another clear sunrise today, and I was awake, but decided not to photograph it as I took some yesterday. While some may consider me an extremist or fanatic for what I have recorded, for true scientific sunrise/twilight research, every one would have to be recorded for hours, from first light to bright sky.
Maybe there is someone doing that: to distinguish the colours, and how cloud forms in different parts of the sky, and how they interact? Or maybe there will be…
Here’s three photos from the previous time I took some previous to yesterday’s, on January 26th, when pre-dawn pulsating pinky penetrated a mostly cloudy morning, with a band of yellowy orange in the middle of it, like POP with purple on the end; the grey sky looks purplish in the cropped last photo.
They also show how an edit can change the scene. I think they have a different colour to yesterday’s set.
Regarding the post title, I was listening to Solstafir while writing the post, with the name apparently meaning crepuscular rays.

The ‘sunrise’ is now half way to the city centre from its midwinter most south-westerly first sighting point, with the big tree and v (a little poetry) convenient markers.

Y-DAY: MISTYMUSE HALFWAY
It’s now two months since the four months long mYm 20/21 started on November 21st, and the passing of the movement into the muse half is marked today with Y-day. It was started to look on the brightest side of the traditionally toughest weather months in the northern hemisphere, with sunrises at their latest time.
This morning we had a mixture of sunshine, rain and sleet. I posted five Y related videos on Facebook for a bit of a music festival there! Here ‘s photos from the sunrise on January 7th, the last sunrise photos from the first half of mistYmuse 20/21 to be posted:
Sunrise in Leeds is now back at 8.08 from its midwinter latest time of 8.24, while sunset is half an hour later at 4.26.
ANGEL FREEBIRD SUNRISE photos POP ART
Yesterday’s sunrise was another great one. The first four photos have a good example of how POP (PinkyOrangePurple) sky colours work, with pinky orange light and clouds turned purple. Some crows joined in from the fourth to seventh photos starting on the second row below. The clouds went a bit double snake from 12-14; angelic from 17-21, and then the last four had a ‘lighthouse beams’ effect from the sun, but not as much as in the last post.

witches season, poetic reason
It’s October 21st, which means there’s only one month until mistYmuse (Most Ideal Sunrise Time – Midwinter Until Spring Equinox; mYm acronym!) 20/21. This week is False Dawn Week, with sunrises getting to their latest before clocks go back an hour on Sunday in the UK; ending British Summer Time (BST).
There was a nice sunrise over Leeds on Monday, just north of the Town Hall on the horizon.
This morning I wrote this little poem. It started off spontaneously, then about half way down I thought its Earth’s north and south hemispheres subject matter made it ideal for a Folding Mirror Poem: the original inspiration for this blog site.
From Sun’s Face, Out Into Space
As planet’s north
points to space
no longer fronting
our star’s fiery face
we remember turn, circling as one
the heat will weaken
but light beacon
will remain alight
beyond winter night
Searching for my book again on Amazon and seeing its 2012 date made me think that some of the poems in there must have been written a decade ago now, and searching on this site’s October 2010 section took me back to that time; in this season of reminiscing.
One poem is about becoming middle-aged, for those who think I try to act too young! Others are more experimental, in a time I remember as very creatively exciting, with blogging and science converging to create lots of subject matter and a place to easily publish it.
