This is a photo of the 'Tadpole Galaxy', also known as Galaxy UGC 10214, taken on April 1st and 9th, of 2002, by
the Hubble Space Telescope.  Against a stunning backdrop of thousands of galaxies, this odd-looking galaxy
with the long streamer of stars appears to be racing through space, like a runaway pinwheel firework.  Its
distorted shape was caused by a small interloper, a very blue, compact galaxy visible in the upper left corner of
the more massive 'Tadpole'.  The Tadpole resides about 420 million light-years away in the constellation Draco.  
Seen shining through the Tadpole's disk, the tiny intruder is likely a hit-and-run galaxy that is now leaving the
scene of the accident.  Strong gravitational forces from the interaction created the long tail of debris, consisting
of stars and gas that stretch out more than 280,000 light-years.  Numerous young blue stars and star clusters,
spawned by the galaxy collision, are seen in the spiral arms, as well as in the long "tidal" tail of stars.  Each of
these clusters, represents the formation of up to about a million stars.  Their color is blue because they contain
very massive stars, which are 10 times hotter and 1 million times brighter than our Sun.  Once formed, the star
clusters become redder with age as the most massive and bluest stars exhaust their fuel and burn out.  These
clusters will eventually become old globular clusters similar to those found in essentially all halos of galaxies,
including our own Milky Way.  Two prominent clumps of young bright blue stars in the long tail are separated by
a "gap" - a section that is fainter than the rest of the tail.  These clumps of stars will likely become dwarf galaxies
that orbit in the Tadpole's halo.  The galactic carnage and torrent of star birth are playing out against a
spectacular backdrop of 6,000 galaxies that represent twice the number of those that were first discovered in
1995 with the legendary Hubble Deep Field Camera.  These galaxies are a myriad of shapes that represent fossil
samples of the universe's 13 billion-year evolution.

    ABOVE:  This is my "Mundane Map".  'Mundane', in this sense, means: "bound to Earth".  The lines and areas that
    are shown on this "The Mundane Map" reveal the astronomical placements of each of the cosmic bodies, as they
    were rising and setting, and at the upper and lower meridians, at the time of my birth.  For Example:  In the map
    above, if you were standing anywhere in the green area on the east coast, at the time of birth, at the western edge of
    the area, where it is darkest, you would see Venus rising in the eastern sky.   If you were standing in the gray area
    that appears in the 'Great Plains' states, at the easternmost, darkest grey area, Pluto would be at its uppermost
    position.  If you were standing in the light-green area on the extreme west coast, Mercury would be overhead or at its
    uppermost position in the sky.  These planets are 'angular', meaning that they occupy a significant placement in the
    birth chart.  The darker color in each area shows where the area of influence is at its strongest.  Where the color
    starts to become lighter and fades in each area, shows the planetary influence at its weakest.  In this map, since
    Venus is about relationships, being at the Venus line, or anywhere in the Venus area, will make relationship issues a
    more prominent part of my life.  Since Pluto rules psychological crises, including death and rebirth issues, these
    things were a more prominent part of my life while I lived in Wichita.  At the small green areas in the Pacific
    Northwest,  Mercury would be overhead symbolizing "Quality of Mind" and "Communication".  This Mercury area
    reveals a good place to go to school or learn new skills.  The lines on this map, the Mundane map, are of primary
    importance, having a value of 75 to 80% in the interpretation important places of interest.

    ABOVE:  This is my "Local Space Map".  These lines radiate out from Wichita, KS, my place of birth and create areas of
    planetary energy.  It shows the positions of the planetary lines and the areas associated with them, measured along
    the 'horizon', as they appeared at the place of birth.  In this map, if I were to walk straight south, I would be walking
    along the gray line (the western most part of the southern grey area).  This is my Pluto line, since these
    Astrocartography lines have the same value as in natal astrology, the same applies to the "Local Space Map" as it
    does in the above "Mundane Map".  And living in the grey area would have the same effect, although the farther from
    the darkest part of the grey area, the effect would be weaker. If I were to walk, from my place of birth, along the darkest
    part of the yellow area, I would be walking towards the Sun's position at the time I was born, and would find
    "Strength", "Power", and "Self-Confidence" along my journey.  Living in the yellow area, the Sun area, the same
    applies.  If I were to follow the darkest part of the dark blue area, into the Pacific Northwest, the Neptune line, or
    proceed in the other direction through the panhandle and peninsula of Florida, I would find that "Spirituality",
    "Intuition", and "Imagination", which are symbolized by Neptune, more prominent in my life.
