Calendar and Wallpaper: July 2015

Full moon… we currently have (about) a full moon! It somehow keeps casting a spell over all of us. Even Lara Croft is still up late at night to take a look at it. WPJuly2015-small

A (genuine) full moon will occur July 2nd, at 04:20 in the Sagittarius constellation. The night from the 1st to the 2nd of July will be the shortest night of a full moon this year. The full moon will be at the zenith in the lowest possible angle then. By the 31st there will already be another night of a full moon. The Earth’s moon will be fully visible at 12:43 in the Capricornus constellation. When there are two night’s of a full moon within a month, the US-Americans call the second one a “blue moon.” It isn’t actually blue. However, the term, the whence of which is a matter of debate, has been vernacularised anyway. The saying “once in a blue moon” (meaning “very rarely”) goes back to this.

On the night of the 16th of July at 03:24 there will be a change of the moon towards a new moon. The moon will be at perigee by the 5th, so that it will be closest to the earth with a distance of 228.099 Miles. In contrast, by the 21st it will be at the farthest point from the earth, with an apogee of 251.555 Miles.

Calendar and Wallpaper: April 2015

WPFebruary2015-small Lara Croft lets her eyes wander over a landscape near an extensive valley. The weather is not that steady yet, but as long as one keeps moving, it is warm enough to go in shorts. Somewhere over there, something wants to be found – only what it is, besides mud, snails and frogs, Lara wouldn’t tell…

Lara Croft, too, has had enough of the winter season already, and thus went where spring has already arrived. She is just doing some Tai Chi exercises outside the town gates in order to keep her fitness up. Stand your ground everyone, the sun will also shine for us again soon!

Open Orga 2015 – Reservation Period Starts Now!

Now it is January, and if you, like me, like keep in mind some key dates for the current year, then the Tomb Raider Meeting cannot be missing. But when will it take place? To answer this and other questions, the Orga-Meeting will shortly gather. Again in 2015, the Orga-Team welcomes all interested fans to join in the Open-Orga,

13. – 15. February 2015.

The number of beds available will be limited, compared to the meeting in the summer, so that it won’t result in a TR-Meeting-Spinoff. Thus, hurry anyone who would like to spend a few days in the beautiful Harz Mountains together with some lovely people.

Just like the TR-Meeting, the Orga-Meeting is supported by RollingBall. You may check in via the forum there (an account is required).
