Planets are forming around HL Tauri, a young, variable star just 1 million years old. They’re leaving their imprints in the dusty disk leftover from the star’s formation, a protoplanetary system that spans 235 astronomical units (the distance between Earth and the Sun). The innermost disk gap appears at a radius of 20-30 a.u., roughly the size of Neptune’s orbit around the Sun. A second gap appears further out at 70 a.u., which would lie outside Pluto’s orbit, and still more gaps appear beyond that.

The passion, the color, the vibrancy, all within the Creator's command... eternal, circles of light, life and BEING... This the very vibration of the Sacral Plexus... Creation's grace granted onto each of us... our creative waters a flow, our light known... This the color vibration of Autumn, the restorative frequency, the alchemic interlude, the transformation, the leaf, the crystal, the gem, the mineral... of Earth, of vistas far. Feel it within...
