A friend of mine, Jan Erik Wilhelmsen, who lives slightly higher up the road to me, witnessed a rare event this morning as a Red Sword rose up in the horison in the East at Sunrise. He was lucky to catch a picture of the event, but reports the photo would have been far more spectaular if he had got hold of his camera a few minutes earlier.



The phenomena is caused by the same atmospheric conditions that cause solar dogs, or 3 suns, which we have had a thread on here at Skyscript earlier. Ice crystals occuring at great heights in the atmosphere. I can't recall having observed anything like this in this area until recent years and now its almost frequent.

The appearance of this Red Sword occurs at the same time as the planet Mars is in opposition to the Sun. I wonder how ancient astrologers would interpret such an event. We also had a meteorite explode just over but outside Oslo last week. There seems to be quite a lot of atmospheric events going on in the area at the moment.

nice pic and interesting summary andrew. thanks for sharing. we will see in retrospect if it has any symbolic relevance or not..

on another note, i thought you might have made a post on the iceland trial of the Geir Haarde being held responsible for the financial dynamic in iceland from a few years ago. geir haarde is saying the trail is a farce which might be true. i have a few charts for iceland - dec 1 1918 noon and june 17 1944 2pm, both for the capital. using the 1944 chart, this dynamic coincides with t uranus/mercury conj squaring onto the midheaven degree while solar arc mercury - ruler of the 9th/12th houses is exactly conjunct mars - ruler of the 7th.. that sounds like a political trail looking for a scapegoat to me.

The photographer, who is not an astrologer, suggested that the Red Sword could be representative of the Red Numbers on the Stock Exchange...

The Norwegian market stooped 3% today.. Confused

By the way, here is a link to Aftenposten where a webcamera picked up the meteorite that came down over Oslo on Friday, March 1.

Imagine, the fireball could be seen on a webcamera! That says something of the brightness of the meteorite. The explosion was heard by witnesses. Astronomers and enthusiasts are trying to work out where particles may be found.

Particles from the meteor that came down over Oslo were found as they crashed through the roof of a recreation home in Oslo itself. The stone recovered weighed over 500 grams. It is assumed it could have had a speed of about 300 km/h at the time it hit the building.

I am not going to do a lot on this story, just add the links incase someone is interested. The first link will probably translate into English. The second link provides more picture of the meteorite and the damage it caused.

Now I wonder what the chart of the woman who owned the house looked like.... Shocked

Pictures of the meteorite: here

the Red Sword looks so majestic! How common is that particular phenomenon? Can it really mean something significant?
