Summer Solstice Diagram

The solstices are the longest and shortest days of the year. On the solstice the places where the sun rises and sets changes direction. At the winter solstice, the sunrise begins to shift north, and the days begin to lengthen. On the summer solstice, the sunrise starts shifting south again and the days begin to get shorter."The word solstice comes from two Latin words: sol (the name of a sun-god) and sistere (to stop)."The equinoxes are the two midpoints between the two solstices, when day and night are the same length. Together, the solstices and the equinoxes mark the astronomical seasons. In MUL.APIN, they werethe dates the sun passes from one "Way" to another.

The solstices are both days in the calendar and points on the ecliptic. - http://www.smoe.org/arcana/diss1.html Cornell: Stargazers, pp. 18-20. The summer solstice occurs about the time of the hottest weather, in the first degree of Cancer. - http://phil.uregina.ca/dkj/Book.Geminus.pdf Geminus: Introduction to the Phenomena Similarly, we can look at the position of the summer solstice point. According to Aratus (and hence Eudoxus) the summer solstice point is at the beginning of Leo (a statement that was true around 1250 B.C.9), while the position of the summer solstice is at the beginning of Cancer (just below the head of Pollux) around 1 B.C. The Farnese Atlas shows the summer solstice point to be at the start of Cancer and just beside the head of Pollux. This is a huge and critical difference ofan entire constellation in the position of the summer solstice. - http://www.phys.lsu.edu/farnese/JHAFarnese.htm "The (megalithic) Octopus had to depict the tidal wave. Gorgones: the constellation that has become the sign of Cancer, issuing from an intermediary (Nordic) Crayfish and the attribute of Herakles (Crayfish hiding itself): it's the kankride of the Greeks: karkinos is the name of the Sun after the Summer Solstice as then it moves backward which causes the shortening of the day after the summer solstice." - http://racines.traditions.free.fr/astroria/astroria.pdf The legend of Orpheus is held to be a variant of the Mithraic Mysteries. Because, when Dionysius invaded Macedonia or Thrace, Orpheus did not pay due homage to him but officiated as priest of the sun-god Helius who he named Apollo, Dionysius set the Maenads (who represented the......

Sea floor records ancient Earth

A sliver of four-billion-year-old sea floor has offered a glimpse into the inner workings of an adolescent Earth. The baked and twisted rocks, now part of Greenland, show the earliest evidence of plate tectonics, colossal movements of the planet's outer shell. Until now, researchers were unable to say when the process, which explains how oceans and continents form, began. The unique find, described in the journal Science, shows the movements started soon after the planet formed. &quo...

Climate change and phenomena

Anthony North: We are facing dangers, today, from global warming. This essay is not going to argue whether this is man-made or a natural cycle as such, but is to suggest another avenue of research into the relationship between climate and paranormal experience.Many researchers, including myself, have suggested that an environment can have an effect upon the mind. But does the present climate change offer a possibility of testing the hypothesis in action?Gaia: The idea that the Earth is a form ...

Study explains rainforest similarities

Celebrated in Buddhist temples and cultivated for its wood and cottony fibers, the kapok tree now is upsetting an idea that biologists have clung to for decades: the notion that African and South American rainforests are similar because the continents were connected 96 million years ago. Research by University of Michigan evolutionary ecologist Christopher Dick and colleagues shows that kapok---and perhaps other rainforest--trees colonized Africa after the continents split when the trees' se...

Did comets cause killer cold spell ?

Tiny diamonds sprinkled across North America suggest a "swarm" of comets hit the Earth around 13,000 years ago, kicking up enough disruption to send the planet into a cold spell and drive mammoths and other creatures into extinction, scientists reported on Friday.They suggest an event that wouldtranscend anything Biblical -- a series of blinding explosions in the atmosphere equivalent to thousands of atomic bombs, the researchers said.The so-called nanodiamonds are made underhigh-temperature, hi...

Ancient tsunami 'hit New York'

A huge wave crashed into the New York City region 2,300 years ago, dumping sediment and shells across Long Island and New Jersey and casting wood debris far up the Hudson River. The scenario, proposed by scientists, is undergoing further examination to verify radiocarbon dates and to rule out other causes of the upheaval. Sedimentary deposits from more than 20 cores in New York and New Jersey indicate that some sort of violent force swept the Northeast coastal region in 300BC. It may ...

Prehistoric jungles laughed at global warming

Evidence has been found to suggest that giant creatures such as the massive one-tonne titanoboa snake would have thrived in hot jungles millions of years ago with temperatures significantlywarmer than those seen today."Fossil boffins say that dense triple-canopyrainforests, home among other things to gigantic one-tonne boa constrictors, flourished millions of years ago in temperatures 3-5C warmer than those seen today - as hot...

Massive ice chunks break up in Antarctica

An ice shelf in western Antarctica is breaking up with huge ice chunks crumbling away and an area over 1300 square miles in danger of breaking off completely in the next few weeks."Massive ice chunks are crumbling away from a shelf inthe western Antarctic Peninsula, researchers said Wednesday, warning that 1,300 square miles of ice - an area larger than Rhode Island - was in danger of breaking off in coming weeks. .

Animal Language

One of the ways most animals communicate is with sound, they may neigh, bark, purr or quack; we speak.  These auditory messages convey meaning for the species concerned.  We understand words, horses understand neighs, dogs understand barks and so on.   Quacks don?t correspond with words, neighs mean little to cats, but what is universal is body language.  Animals can understand the body language of their species and of others.  They usually recognize a...

Prepare for another ten scorching years

Temperature records will be repeatedly shattered over the next few years, say researchers behind the first rigorous look at how global climate will change during the next decade. The prediction comes from an innovative technique that combines the approaches used by weather forecasters, who typically look a few days ahead, and climate modellers, who produce projections that run up to the end of the century. The result is a model that can project as far as 2015, filling in a long-standing gap in c...

Global warming could change Earths tilt

It is thought that global warming could cause the Earth"s axis to tilt significantly within the next hundred years, with the rebound from melting ice sheets and the rise in sea levels both contributing to changes in the planet"s tilt."Warming oceans could cause Earth"s axis to tilt in the comingcentury, a new study suggests. . The effect was previously thought to be negligible, but researchers now say the shift will be lar...
