Inspired by science

Just like Alice is inspired by math in her weaving, I have decided that my next piece will be inspired by science.  I have always been in awe of the northern lights, aurora borealis, since I first saw them as a 12 year old in northern Michigan one summer.  So the next piece is a triple of three panels of aurora with phrases about the astronomy surrounding them.
With four shuttles in black, green, red and yellow there is an interesting palette of possibilities here.  

Should be interesting to see how this weaves with all that dither in the colors.  This may take awhile, however, since I may need to get a new part for the loom.  I changed some pistons that were not performing and seem to have done something to one of the connections.  So frustrating.
