Solar Dynamics

NASA launched the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) on 11 February 2010 (See Youtube video about SDO). SDO's first images were released to the public on 21 April 2010:

The Aries Symbol, the Mushroom & Cultivating Perspective

In 'The Tropical Year, Aries, Symbolism & Perspective' I wrote: 'Aries is associated with the planet Mars and energy. Atomic or nuclear explosions have the appearance of a mushroom cloud, i.e. a spout of energy that ascends and spreads in a 360° 'mushroom' or arc which looks, in the 2-D view, like the Aries sign.' So in this post I thought I'd post a few pictures of mushrooms which may further connect the Aries symbol to the 360° circle. (See also 'More on the Aries Symbol & Cultivating Perspective'.)
