I enjoyed serving as a guest presenter about the astronomy of the December solstice for the Global Solstice Meditation 2012 at the Spiritual Living Center of Atlanta (SLCA).

This photo by Ron Bland was made atop a 14,000-ft volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii just after a 7-hour NASA webcast of the 2012 Venus Transit of the Sun. Cherilynn (rising at left with buttocks eclipsing the Sun of the glorious sunset) served as a science commentator, science educator, and singer in support of the webcast. The extraordinary teamwork and mutual support on the summit among the scientists, educators, and webcast crew (NASA EDGE) gives us all reason to hope for humanity. Everyone contributed in deference to bringing to the world the best possible program to honor this rare and remarkable celestial event. The other three silhouettes are of young women who also supported the outreach activities. When I saw the beautiful photo I named it Feminine Rising in the spirit of the occasion, and I knew that I would write a song by that name, perhaps even with this photo on an album cover!
Cherilynn Morrow was part of a NASA delegation standing with JAXA scientists and engineers at the remote Tanegashima Space Center on 14 September 2007 to observe the launch of Japan’s Kaguya spacecraft to the Moon. She provided a guest blog for the Planetary Society of near real-time events leading up to and including the launch. The link to this blog is being restored. Meanwhile enjoy a glorious Earthrise recorded by Kaguya’s HD camera.
I was invited to be a featured astronomer on the Mars Millenium Project 2030 website where a collection of artists, scientists, engineers and astronauts were asked about their creative process and dreams for an envisioned Mars 2030 colony. The project was a national arts, sciences, and technology education initiative sponsored jointly by NASA, NASA/JPL, the J. Paul Getty Trust, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Department of Education, and the White House Millennium Council.
