The continuing adventures of Our Christmas Puppy, a Sirius-ly painted event....

Before painting Canis Major (CMA), I also made a stylized sketch of the constellation like a star chart.  The wolf's head was shaped like a triangle with Sirius Star as his dog collar tag.

On Thanksgiving Day (Nov 22 USA) as I was setting the table, I glanced up at the Sirius painting and was star struck by the image of the triangle shaped shadow radiating out from the wolf dog's face.  Why was this?  I grabbed my camera, chased and captured the fleeting shadow.

Where did the triangle shape come from?  While eating dinner, we realized the shadow was cast from a torch lamp nearby.  The sun had hit the lamp at just the right angle to throw the shadow as seen on the above painting.  We just happened to be at the exact time and space to view the ever changing beacon of sunshine light that quickly lit up the dog and gradually faded.  The painting then returned to "normal."  If I hadn't made the sketch, I would have missed the shadow.

 If I had copied someone else's  path, I would have missed my own....

Deepak Chopra:  
"Synchrodestiny requires gaining access to a deep place within yourself while, at the same time, awakening to the intricate dance of coincidences out in the physical world."

Update:  On 12-12-12 my husband, Paul, and I saw red star Aldebaran in Taurus the Bull plus bright golden Jupiter lighting up the sky.  We smiled seeing the smudge of stars, the Pleiades.  We watched Orion, the hunter rise, in full glory.   Later my son, Rob, and I watched parts of the Geminid meteor shower cut and pasted with views of Sirius star flashing various colors of bright red, ice blue, and yellow orange.  While we watched the stars in the heavens, we also enjoyed stars on TV with the 12-12-12 Concert including The Rolling Stones, The Who, Paul McCartney and many others.  Cosmic Events are on Earth and Beyond.
