Annular Eclipse After Sunrise


From northern Patagonia, morning skies were clear and blue on Sunday, February 26. This sweeping composite scene, overlooking Hermoso Valle, Facundo, Chubut, Argentina, follows the Sun after sunrise, capturing an annular solar eclipse. Created from a series of exposures at three minute intervals, it shows the year's first solar eclipse beginning well above the distant eastern horizon. An exposure close to mid-eclipse recorded the expected ring of fire, the silhouette of the New Moon only slightly too small to cover the bright Sun. At that location on planet Earth, the annular phase of the eclipse lasted a brief 45 seconds.

Ancient Greek Sees Ancient Wonder, and Thinks of His Mother

Around 278 BCE, tourists from Greece and Italy started flocking to the Valley of the Kings in Egypt to see the tombs. We know this because of the graffiti that they left behind. Some etched their names or their jobs on the sides of walls while others wrote of their amazement for the place where they stood. However, one unique piece of graffiti at the Colossi of Memnon stands out. The Colossi had been damaged in earthquakes, and air seeping through the cracks tended to make a high whistling sound.

When one Greek tourist heard the whistle, he believed that Memnon had cried out the name of his mother. He wrote what he’d heard on the foot. Then he added a message to someone else. “I missed you, O my mother,” he wrote, “and I prayed that you might hear him, too.”

Fantasma aparece em selfie de menina nos EUA

Uma garota de 13 anos conseguiu capturar em fotografia uma figura anômala em seu telefone celular.

A jovem Haley e seu irmão Kolton estivam em uma viagem de pesca com seus avós quando a fotografia, enquanto estava sentada na parte de trás de seu caminhão, foi tirada.

Mais tarde em casa, quando foi rever as suas fotos, notou um indivíduo não identificado que é visível na janela no fundo.

A pessoa com o boné verde é seu irmão, mas bem próximo a ele está outro homem vestindo uma roupa escura e boné de beisebol que nenhum dos membros da família tinha visto lá no momento.

Ainda mais peculiar é o fato de que o homem parece estar na altura errada – Kolton está se curvando na imagem, mas o homem, que aparentemente está de pé, não é muito mais alto do que ele.

A fotografia bizarra desde então tem sido compartilhada milhares de vezes no Facebook.

Oração pelos amigos

Senhor meu Deus, Te peço neste momento autoridade para poder orar pelos amigos. Senhor derrama sobre cada um a sua graça e misericórdia!  Peço perdão pelos nossos pecados, e que não tire de nós os teus olhos. Senhor, Deus e Pai, debaixo da sua autoridade quero profetizar que todas as correntes que possam estar prendendo meus amigos e irmãos, venham a ser quebradas, destruídas!  As obras feitas
