Space Art Monday: Star Miaplacidus

Star Miaplacidus fantasy creature

Star Miaplacidus fantasy creature

Who lives on Star Miaplacidus? Good question!

Star Miaplacidus is in the constellation Argo Navis,The Great Ship, which can be seen in the southern hemisphere.

Star Miaplacidus is located at the Ship’s keel just below the False Cross.

In Greek mythology Argo Navis represents the ship in which Jason brought the Golden Fleece from Colchis.

French astronomer Nicolas Louis de Lacaille in 1752 subdivided the constellation Argo Navis into Carina (the keel of the ship), Puppis (the stern deck), Vela (the sails), and a subordinate division of Argo now called Pyxis Nautica.

Ocean Art Wednesday: Glaminco space fish

Space Fish

Space Fish

My new ebook featuring Cazpurdy the space explorer is coming along.

Here is Glaminco who lives in the ocean on star Bellatrix.

This Glaminco helped Cazpurdy after Caz’s spaceship crashed by using its many spikey armlets to pull Cazpurdy’s space ship from the ocean floor.

Space Art Monday: Star Adhara

Star Adhara fantasy creature

Star Adhara fantasy creature

Guess who lives on Star Adhara?

Star Adhara is in the constellation ‘Big Dog’ also known as Canis Major. It is located at the dog’s back hind quarters. ‘Big Dog’ follows behind Orion ‘the hunter’ in the night sky.

In Greek mythology, Canis Major is associated with Laelaps, the fastest dog in the world, one destined to catch anything it pursued. Zeus gave Laelaps to Europa as a present, along with a javelin that could not miss.

Ocean Art Wednesday: Cazpurdy crashes into Star Bellatrix Ocean

Ocean on Star Bellatrix

Ocean on Star Bellatrix – Cazpurdy has a rough landing but gets some help from some amazing creatures!

I’m working on a new e-book! It is about a character named Cazpurdy who is travelling through space and has to make an emergency landing on Star Bellatrix.

Here is my sketch of the scene where Cazpurdy crashes into the ocean on Star Bellatrix and gets help from some amazing creatures.

It is going to be a fun book, full of wild and crazy creatures that live on Star Bellatrix and Cazpurdy meets them all while looking for the Wootooka Plant to make repairs to the spaceship. My ebook should be ready soon, will keep you posted.

Space Art Monday: Star Eltanin

Star Eltanin fantasy creature

Star Eltanin fantasy creature

Who lives on Star Eltanin? Good question!
Maybe this fish-like creature.

Star Eltanin is in the constellation Draco ‘the dragon’. Eltanin is at the head of this great dragon which is the eighth largest constellation in the sky.

Although it can be seen year around in the northern hemisphere, it is best to see this star in the summer around July when it is high in the night sky above the North Star and Ursa Minor. It is a faint star so you will need a dark sky.

Eltanin’s high northerly position also takes it nearly through the zenith, the point overhead, as seen from London, England, which is why at one time it was referred to as the “zenith star.”

According to Greek mythology, Draco represents Ladon, the ever-vigilant dragon who was hired by the goddess Hera, Zeus’ wife, to guard the garden of the Hesperides.
