"What I truly love" & "5 Sky Events This Week"

 What I truly love/Ce-mi place cu adevărat:

                                     A walk to the Black Sea seashore/ O plimbare la malul Mării Negre...

"The Black Sea* is a sea in Southeastern Europe. It is bounded by Europe, Anatolia and the Caucasus and is ultimately connected to the Atlantic Ocean via the Mediterranean and the Aegean Seas and various straits. The Bosphorus Strait connects it to the Sea of Marmara, and the Strait of the Dardanelles connects that sea to the Aegean Sea region of the Mediterranean. These waters separate eastern Europe and western Asia. The Black Sea is also connected to the Sea of Azov by the Strait of Kerch." *click for more info on Wikipedia.
Wikipedia: "Mamaia is a resort on the Romanian Black Sea shore and a district of Constanța.  Considered to be Romania's most popular resort,[1] Mamaia is situated immediately north-east of Constanţa's city center. It has almost no full-time residents, being populated mostly during the summer.  Mamaia lies on a strip of land 8 km (5.0 mi) in length and only 300 m (328 yards) in width, between the Black Sea and Lake Siutghiol.  The beach season is at its best between mid June and early September, when average daytime temperatures range between 25 to 30 degrees Celsius (78 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit). The water stays warm until mid autumn."
Wikipedia: "Marea Neagră este întinderea de ape din bazinul geomorfologic denumit pontic, unul din bazinele complexului tectonic tethysian, el însuși parte a orogenezei alpino-himalayene, din care fac parte și munții care o mărginesc la nord (în Crimeea), la nord-est (Caucazul) și la sud (lanțurile pontice). Este situată între Europa și Asia, având ca state riverane Rusia, Ucraina, România, Bulgaria, Turcia și Georgia. Prin Strâmtoarea Cherci este legată de Marea Azov, prin Bosfor de Marea Marmara, iar prin strâmtoarea Dardanele de Marea Egee și deci de Marea Mediterană. Marea Neagră este, din punct de vedere hidrologic, un rest al Mării Sarmatice și prezintă o serie de aspecte unice în lume : ape salmastre (în medie 16-18 grame de sare pe litru față de 34-37 în în alte mări și oceane), stratificare între apele de suprafață oxigenate și cele adânci anoxice (fenomen denumit euxinism), limane la gurile fluviale, floră și faună cu multe specii-relicve. În zona litoralului românesc salinitatea scade și mai mult, în mod obișnuit fiind între 7 și 12 la mie.  Marea Neagră se întinde pe o suprafață de 423.488 km². Cel mai adânc punct se află la 2211 m sub nivelul mării în apropierea de Ialta. Mareele sunt în general de mică amploare (cca. 12 cm)."The settlement was mentioned for the first time in 1421 under the name Kara Koyun ("Black Sheep"), to be renamed later on Karaköy or Carachioi ("The Black Village"). In 1927, the locality was again renamed to Năvodari and after five years, on 15 August 1932, it was granted commune status.

  Seashells in macro view

"A seashell or sea shell, also known simply as a shell, is a hard, protective outer layer created by an animal that lives in the sea. The shell is part of the body of the animal. Empty seashells are often found washed up on beaches by beachcombers. The shells are empty because the animal has died and the soft parts have been eaten by another animal or have rotted out.
The term seashell usually refers to the exoskeleton of an invertebrate (an animal without a backbone). Most shells that are found on beaches are the shells of marine mollusks, partly because many of these shells endure better than other seashells."
Mamaia este o stațiune turistică de vară a litoralului românesc, pe malul vestic al Mării Negre. Este situată în nordul Municipiului Constanța, România, din care face parte. Are foarte puțini locuitori permanenți (7 la recensământul din 2002, mai ales paznici[necesită citare]), fiind însă suprapopulată pe parcursul verii. Construcția unor ansambluri rezidențiale, care se desfășoară în prezent pe malul lacului Siutghiol, va schimba poate această stare de fapt.[necesită citare]  Mamaia este o construită pe un grind litoral între Marea Neagră și limanul numit Siutghiol (Süt-Göl: "lacul lăptos" în turcește). Grindul are o lungime de 8 km, însă o lățime de doar 300 m. Plaja foarte lungă, cu o lățime de până la 250 m, este acoperită cu un nisip foarte fin, parte mineral, parte cochilifer. De-a lungul acesteia se află multe magazine, restaurante, terase, cluburi și discoteci.


20.06.2014 Up-date/ Many thanks to the precious remark made by Erica Baker about the walk on the beach with shells: I'll add some photos of the seashore without so many seashells on... And what I observed about the sea shells ... when is season open - everyone's in a hurry to find out the most attractive ones!! well... this "dunes" of seashells are often seen in May... In rest, the sand beach is normally!""

 "5 Sky Events This Week: Goddess of Love and Distant Giants" sursa/source: national geographic.com
  1. "A legendary symbol of beauty adds romance to the early morning skies this week, appearing along with some of the most elusive of Earth’s neighboring worlds."
  2. "Venus, the Morning Star: Starting at dawn on Tuesday, June 17, and for the rest of this week, look for the diamond-like Venus to appear in the eastern sky.  The brightest starlike object in the morning sky, Venus will rise about 90 minutes before dawn. The planet will hang about 10 degrees above the horizon within a half hour before sunrise."
  3. "Moon and Neptune: Before dawn on Wednesday, June 18, look for the ice-blue giant planet, Neptune, to be hanging 5 degrees south of the near quarter moon. Shining at nearly 8th magnitude, Neptune is a challenge to hunt down and is best viewed through large binoculars or telescopes."
  4. "Jupiter joins Pollux: After sunset on Friday, June 20, look toward the low northwest sky for the king of planets, brilliant Jupiter. The gas giant will make its closest approach to one of the Gemini constellation’s twins, Pollux, tonight. Appearing only 6 degrees apart, the two stellar objects are easy to see even from light-polluted suburbs, wherever there are no obstructions near the horizon."
  5. "June solstice: In the Northern Hemisphere, summer (winter in the Southern Hemisphere) officially begins at 6:51 a.m. EDT (10:51 UT) on Saturday, June 21; see a list of cities and local times here)."
