At the time I was confused, "Was this a retired collection from the time before I was introduced to Aromaleigh?" And if so, "why couldn't I find out anything about it online?"
Well now I know. I had been planing on posting my review and swatches of this collection a few weeks from now, but with this new information I decided to bring up my deadline and post it early, complete with color descriptions, swatches, and definitions of the names.
Left to right:
Celestial: A barely there baby pink with a silver shimmer, pink, and rainbow sparkle.
-pertaining to the sky or visible heaven.
Umbra: A heathered gray/beige pearl with rainbow sparkle.
-the complete or perfect shadow of an opaque body, as a planet, where the direct light from the source of illumination is completely cut off.
Retrograde: Warm burgundy with a pink undertone and rainbow sparkle.
-moving in an orbit in the direction opposite to that of the earth in its revolution around the sun.
-pertaining to anything outside the Milky Way system.
-a theory that deduces a cataclysmic birth of the universe .
Left to right:
Crescent: Bright yellow with gold shimmer and blue sparkle.
-the figure of the moon in its first or last quarter.
Binary: A pale spring green base with amazing purple shimmer.
- a binary star is a system of two stars that revolve about their common center of mass.
-the point in the orbit of a planet or comet at which it is nearest to the sun.
Azimuth: An amazing icey blue shimmer on an olive base. So lovely and impossible to capture.
-the arc of the horizon measured clockwise from the south point, in astronomy, or from the north point, in navigation, to the point where a vertical circle through a given heavenly body intersects the horizon.
Heliosphere: A slightly dark gold shimmer with red, purple, and gold sparkles.
-the region around the sun over which the effect of the solar wind extends.
-the boundary around a black hole on and within which no matter or radiation can escape.
Wavelength: A plush aqua with diamond sparkle.
-the distance, measured in the direction of propagation of a wave, between two successive points in the wave that are characterized by the same phase of oscillation.
Antimatter: An olive gray with gold shimmer and purple sparkles.
-matter composed only of antiparticles.
Blueshift: An amazing plush gray duochrome with purple/blue shimmer and rainbow sparkle.
-a shift toward shorter wavelengths of the spectral lines of a celestial object, caused by the motion of the object toward the observer.
Escape Velocity: A plush blue on a black base duochrome with rainbow sparkle.
-the minimum speed that an object at a given distance from a gravitating body must have so that it will continue to move away from the body instead of orbiting about it.
Left to right:
Dark Matter: Dark brass with high shimmer and blue and red sparkle.
-a hypothetical form of matter invisible to electromagnetic radiation, postulated to account for gravitational forces observed in the universe.
-a unit of distance that is equal to one million parsecs.
Apogee: A warm slightly pink brown with rainbow sparkle.
- the point in the orbit of a heavenly body.
Neutrino: tree bark brown with rainbow sparkle.
-any of the massless or nearly massless electrically neutral leptons.
Ephemeris: Plush pearl brown with rainbow sparkle.
-a table or callender showing the positions of a heavenly body on a number of dates in a regular sequence.
Edit: See denelians comment below.:
Nadir: Pearlized coral pink with rainbow sparkle.
-the point on the celestial sphere directly beneath a given position or observer and diametrically opposite the zenith.
Pulsar: A surprisingly wearable orange with gold shimmer and red sparkles.
-one of several hundred known celestial objects, generally believed to be rapidly rotating neutron stars, that emit pulses of radiation, esp. radio waves, with a high degree of regularity.
Milky Way: A milky beige with rainbow sparkle.
-the spiral galaxy containing our solar system.
Astronomical is an amazing collection with so many complex colors, I highly recommended it. Some of my favorites include Pulsar, Mega Parsec, Perihelion, Azimuth, Event Horizon, Blueshift, and Escape Velocity.
