Galactic 'Supervolcano' Seen Erupting With X-Rays

A galactic "supervolcano" in the massive galaxy M87 is erupting, blasting gas outwards. The cosmic volcano — driven by a giant black hole in M87's center — is preventing hundreds of millions of new stars from forming.
An image, taken by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and the National Radio Astronomy Observatory's Very Large Array, captures the drama in action.
Galaxy's gas plumes
In M87, the plumes of cooler gas being lifted upward contain as much mass as all of the gas contained within 12,000 light-years of the center of the galaxy cluster. The black hole-powered supervolcano is thus very efficient at blasting the galaxy free of the gas that would otherwise cool and form stars.
"This gas could have formed hundreds of millions of stars as massive as our own sun, if the black hole had not removed it from the center of the galaxy," said Evan Million, a graduate student at Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif., and lead author of a second paper to be published about M87.
Oh, some gardening excitement today, my feisty and frolicsome Felines, the Kougaress found out she has baby pumpkins... or, those miniature pumpkins... she couldn’t tell for the longest time... what with the rain... the ground cover jungle... and the great big leaves... plus, it took pumpky plant a long time to get growing, and makes lots of blooms. Harvesting them, well, that’s a whole other matter. This Big Cat needs lots o’ picking luck.
Super New Moon in Virgo ~ It’s dark-of-the-moon time, a great time to look up at the night sky since the other celestial objects will be on brighter display... unless it’s cloudy, of course. Take a gander, bat an eyelash at the astrology info below. You could be inspired to begin anew and this is a good time to do it, especially if you’re a virgin in that particular arena... oh, yeah... the idea arrives...
She was a virgin trapped in arena on an unknown world... gulping in breaths while feeling no air made inside her lungs, she noticed only brutish, but heroically handsome men surrounded her... clinging to the strap of her simple thigh-length garment so it wouldn’t fall and reveal her bare assets... she wondered if they slavered for her death at the fangs and claws of some beast... or, was she a prize of some kind, to be ravished... oh, god, she fell to her knees ... she felt the strap slip from her grasp as she fainted...
2:12 pm, OH NO!!! The Kougaress is being haunted by that time and she’s not looking for it... well, okay, she did have all sorts of dreams about the cover of her 2012 fantasy erotic romance, WHEN A GOOD ANGEL FALLS... the cover kept getting larger and more prominent from the promo-ing efforts of someone else, and not this Big Cat. Weird! At least, it wasn’t the dream she had the day before... being pregnant by OJ Simpson, who was behind bars... or by her ex-boyfriend... either one would be a horrible fate! Moi hates her dreams, sometimes... yowls, she’d like to rip them into deleted shreds...
Authoress news and mews ~
This is the Kougar’s official ROARS OF THANK YOU!!! moment to everyone who has purchased BRANDED BY THE TEXANS. She is grateful! ~wahoo good good vibes are coming your way~ this Big Cat luvs ya... yeeeehawww!
Anyone used that new editor thing for Blogger... good everlovin’ gawd... what a mess! for the most part... and what happened to the bigger color selection and why didn’t the tag function work worth a big effing damn? But, of course, it won’t matter, we’ll be forced to use it, whether or not it’s too our preference. This Big Cat IS NOT looking forward to that nasty disappointment.
Ya know, when something works kinda good... why not improve it? Instead of ruin it? If moi had a dollar for every time this has occurred in her life... new, new, new... but, really lousy, lousy, lousy... hey, she’d be rich, rich, rich...

On September 8, we have a New Moon in Virgo at 10:31 am UTC. (6:30 am EDT, 3:30 am PDT).
During a New Moon, the Sun and the Moon are always conjunct -- that is in the same degree of the zodiac, and within an eight degree orb of each other. Every New Moon we have is a coming together of the masculine energy of the Sun with the feminine energy of the Moon.
New Moons represent new beginnings -- fresh starts. When the dual forces of the Sun and Moon join hands in their monthly cosmic dance, they create an ebb and flow of opposites -- the conscious versus the unconscious - action versus receptive intuition. This is the Dark Side of the Moon and the energies of the Moon are now at a subconscious level. We probe deeper and review our innermost needs and desires, and we plant seeds.
New Moons are about balance of these opposing forces -- the cosmic balance of the male and female energies, the Yin and the Yang -- both in our individual selves and in the universe. The fast moving Moon moves through the 12 signs of the zodiac every 28 days. The energy of each New Moon takes on the qualities of the sign the Sun and the Moon come together in - giving us the full kaleidoscope of energies.
The New Moon in Virgo has potent lunar energies. Not only do we have the Sun and Moon holding hands in Virgo, we also have Mars and Venus in close conjunction with each other in Libra. Mercury, ruler of Virgo is retrograde. Later, in the day, Venus moves out of Venus into seductive and passionate Scorpio. This is also a Super New Moon, which occurs when the Moon is at its closet approach to the Earth. Super Moons generate greater gravitational and electromagnetic pulls on the Earth's oceans and tectonic plates as well as on our psyches. After all, the human body is about 60% water in adult males and 55% in adult females!
Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac, to be exact, and it is exacting. Virgo is driven by duty; it is industrious, methodical and efficient. This New Moon is about balance -- the balance between what we want to do and what we need to do -- service to others versus service to self -- spirituality versus practicality. The energies of the cosmos want us to analyze elements of our present behavior that may be out of balance and set them right. This New Moon helps us recognize truths about ourselves and wants us to focus on our particular path this lifetime.

Happy Courtship on another Earth
X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Part 618 ~
Sylva figured Zeke had heard of the Caretakers by his expression, and the bright glint in his eyes. After a moment, she stepped into the silence. “They said ‘we will care for the dimensional shell. Their work is finished’.” His continued silence started to confuse her. “No, it’s fine, darlin’. You just caught me bein’ thrown from the bull.” Tenderly reaching out, he stroked her cheek with his fingertips, then smiled. “The Caretakers are considered to be our divine friends,” he rumbled gently. “We never speak about them unless it is to thank them or to pass along their messages.”
Zeke figured since the Caretakers had spoken to his Sylva this way, that her presence on his Earth had been more than a lightning-striking act of fate. But then, he already knew that down to his everlovin’ soul. No doubt, she belonged here. With him. His beloved wife. He debated about telling Ben and the others before headin’ into the portal. If he did, that would mean time lost, they couldn’t afford. “Come on, darlin’. That message will have to wait until we return.” Embracing her against his side, he moved them toward the ‘fast tube’ as it was called.
