Autumn Sunset On TeTap II

A deep blue sun sinks below the horizon, as another autumnal day ends on the planet TeTap II.  Only 250 light-years away, TeTop II has the closest extraterrestrial civilization.  They know of Earth, but want nothing to do with the 'barbaric place.'
A cobalt-blue spaceship sails over the parkland: a maroon moon is rising the in East...

Autumn Moonrise Over TeTap II

A maroon moon slowly rises, and turns  the sky a bluish-gray on the planet TeTap II.  A bird-like creature flies off in the distance as the day slowly fades away...

This planet is only 250 light years away.  The TeTapians are very aware of Earth--and do everything they can to avoid it.

How bizarre other life forms are--and how interesting!

Shuttle Blasts Off From Jeriko

A Corderan Shuttle blasts off from a crater on a moon called Jeriko.  This moon orbits the planet Zimbuctu.  The Sombrero Galaxy looms ahead, and the Homeworld--Cordero Prime!

Intergalactic Lograrian Cubes

A colony of Lograrian Cubes hovers over a deserted asteroid,  just outside the Black--Eyed Galaxy.  The Cubes are investigating some ancient ruins of a forgotten Galactic Empire.  The Lograrians will use the asteroid to construct more Cubes for their strange, endless voyage throughout the Universe.

The Lograrians are an extremely shy, insect-like race.  Their hyperdimensional Cubes have been observed in every galaxy.

El Alma III In The Sombrero Galaxy

El Alma III orbits a blue sun, right on the edge of the Sombrero Galaxy.  Bizarre, red fountains erupt, as a strange flying saucer buzzes the sky.

This Universe is very, very rich with Life!  The Sombrero Galaxy is especially fertile, and can boast of hundreds of galactic civilizations!

Alien Evening On TeTap II

 A giant, shiny flying saucer hovers over the skyscrapers of a city on the planet TeTop II.  An aquamarine sun gazes down on the alien scenery far below.  TeTop II sports a very surreal, hyper-dimensional architecture.

The giant saucer is from the planet Cordero Prime, far away in the Sombrero Galaxy.

Intelligent life is very common in the Universe, and very rich!

Inter-dimensional Afternoon On TeTap II

Strange spacecraft fill the deep-blue skies of TeTap II on a balmy, Autumn afternoon. The TeTapians are very curious about both Outer Space and Inter-dimensional Space. Alien spacecraft often visit their bright, colourful cities.

Hyperdimensional Afternoon On TeTap II

TeTap II is relatively earth-like with deep blue skies and a temperate climate.  Its pleasant cities use a hyperdimensional architecture, and it's sometimes difficult to tell up from down and left from right.

A neon-green interstellar ship prepares to dock, on a quiet afternoon.  The TeTapians are only 250 light years away.  They know of Earth, but consider it a hopeless, depressing place, and try to avoid it.

TeTap II

TeTap II is an interesting planet, only 250 light years from Earth.  The TeTapians have achieved a 30th Century technology, and colonized a dozen nearby star systems.  They know of Earth, but have decided not to make contact...

There are over 10,000 habitable planets within 1000 light years of Earth.  Life is Everywhere...!

Lograrian Space Hives

The Lograrians are a very old and strange insect race.  They began colonizing space over 5 billion years ago in a distant galaxy.  They do not colonize planets, but construct hyper-dimensional cubes or 'hives' to live in from asteroids and comets.  The Lograrians are very shy, and make no attempt to communicate with any other races. 

Their cubical hives have been observed in every galaxy.

Belleza And Brillante

Belleza is a beautiful earth-like world that spins around a star just outside the Whirlpool Galaxy.  Brillante is a ice-covered moon, very much like Jupiter's moon Europa. 

Nighttime skies are never dark when Brillante is full.  The icy moon shines almost 100X as bright as Earth's companion.

El Solo

El Solo is a lonely green planet, orbiting a star in intergalactic space.  The planet has no siblings and no moons to brighten its skies.  El Solo and it's bluish star were tossed out into intergalactic space, billions of years ago.  The nearest star system is over 20 million light years away in the Whirlpool Galaxy.

Warm, greenish seas cover most  of El Solo.  The tranquil planet is unknown, even to the most advanced galactic civilizations.

Night Blooms

Cinnamon scented flowers bloom on a planet called Mira III,  after the Andromeda Galaxy rises in the sky.  This planet is in a small irregular galaxy that orbits the much larger Andromeda Galaxy.

Two carrier ships from Cordero Prime glide through the alien night, far above the peaceful scene.

Alien Afternoon In The Sombrero Galaxy

An emerald green spaceship sails among the skyscrapers of Kalediscopia City.  Giant buildings, seven miles -high, cast massive shadows on the streets below.  An alien sun peeks out from behind a building near the end of another alien afternoon.

UFOs Over City Hall

Two bright flying saucers from the Sombrero Galaxy visit Philadelphia's City Hall on a stunning mid-October afternoon.  The flying saucers are actually hyper-dimensional flying pyramids from the Corderan Empire.

How strangely beautiful this Universe is!  And how rich with surprises!

UFOs Over Philadelphia

Two warships from the Corderan Empire sail through the hazy October skies of downtown Philadelphia. Soon, 50 billion hungry colonists will descend.

The Conquest has begun!

Tuesday, October 12, 2010


Two interstellar commuter ships prepare to land on the 7,777th floor of the Krysler Building. Cordero Prime is the Homeworld of the Corderan Empire in the Sombrero Galaxy. Its capital, Kaleidiscopia City is home to over 850 quadrillion people. The planet's green skies and spotted blue sun are known throughout the civilized Universe.

Dawn On The Planet Venusia

A spotted blue sun rises over a misty river on the planet Venusia in the Sombrero Galaxy. Venusia is the 'sister' of Cordero Prime, and it is a planet of waterways and rivers. Venusia is only populated at its two poles, the equatorial region is much too hot! It is 20 million miles closer to its sun then Cordero Prime.

Esta Noche En La Ciudad de Kaleidiscopia

A colourful starship zooms overhead, as another night begins in Kaleidiscopia City on the planet Cordero Prime. A full moon sporting hundreds of volcanic craters tries to compete with a sky full of stars and nebulae.

Cordero Prime is located in a globular star cluster, deep in the heart of the Sombrero Galaxy.

Red Afternoon On Rojobosque II

A forest of bizarre red trees flourishes on the planet Rojobosque II in the Milky Way Galaxy! Rojobosque II orbits a red dwarf sun, only 12 million miles away.

Red dwarf stars are always the most fertile for life, and are very stable. The pleasant red afternoon will still look pretty much the same, 20 billion years from now!

A crystalline moon rises just before sunset behind a castle in Dreamland on a perfect October evening...!

Dreamland exists in the 0th Dimension; it both exists and doesn't exist. It is always there and never there. It's a great place to seek refuge!


Took this photo by the banks of the Schuylkill River in Valley Forge National Park last summer. I snake had just jumped into the river, and I was hoping to catch it on film. Didn't get the photo of the snake, but something else instead...

Honestly don't know who or what he is, in the lower right hand corner. He's dead, obviously, Looks like he's wearing a cap and has long, curly hair; maybe he drowned many years ago. He's looking right into the camera, and he doesn't look too happy...

Lots more detail comes out if you look at the photo in black and white with high contrast. I've been back to the spot a few times, but never noticed or felt anything strange. I tell myself it's just a simulacrum, but I really don't know...spooky!

Nights In White Satin

A gigantic gray moon named Gris rises over the Emperor's Garden on the planet Cordero Prime. The warm, autumnal night is decorated with thousands of fountains on this incredible world in the Sombrero Galaxy!

How rich with life this Universe is! It is beyond all imagination, beyond all understanding! And yet, it is!

Summerland is a planet in the Milky Way Galaxy that rotates only 10 million miles from its strange sun. Fortunately, the sun gives off more light than heat. Summerland is tidally locked, and one side always faces the sun. A rich biosphere has evolved here, and it is eternally Summer...


Zimbuctu is a planet on the very edge of the Sombrero Galaxy. It's evening skies are filled by the enormous, magnificent galaxy! Zimbuctu is a warm, tropical planet that sports a Moorish architecture.

A small moon named Jeriko shares the skies with the grand Sombrero Galaxy!

Early Autumn On Harmony III

A giant crow-like bird flies overhead on the planet Harmony III in the Sombrero Galaxy! The entire planet was transformed into a garden almost 5,000 years ago by the Corderan Empire. The vegetation begins to change into a riot of colours, as the Autumn season begins on this very pleasant world, so very far away...

An Alien Garden On Harmony III

A garden of richly scented blooms lies under a royal blue sky on Harmony III in the Sombrero Galaxy. A boomerang shaped flying saucer from the Corderan Empire seems to float in the serene skies of this tranquil world...
