Weekly Weather: Sun

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This week’s topic is Sun (the star that is the central body of the solar system, around which the planets revolve and from which they receive light and heat: its mean distance from the earth is about 93 million miles (150 million km), its diameter about 864,000 miles (1.4 million km), and its mass about 330,000 times that of the earth; its period of surface rotation is about 26 days at its equator but longer at higher latitudes.)

This year I went with SUNflowers! I found so many images I couldn’t resist.

Weekly Weather: Sun Dog

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This week’s topic is Halo (a circle of white or colored light around the sun, moon, or other luminous body caused by refraction through ice crystals in the atmosphere.); Sun Dog ( is an atmospheric phenomenon that consists of a bright spot to the left and/or right of the Sun.); and/or Light Pillar (an atmospheric optical phenomenon in the form of a vertical band of light which appears to extend above and/or below a light source).

I used magazine photos and black textured scrapbook paper ( I cut out individual flowers and highlighted with glitter pens). None of the images of the sun exactly meet the definitions of the topic; but, rather, my interpretation of it. However, I do like my sun dogs! (click on the image to biggify!)
