Ik zal proberen een lijst van namen van planeten in het Grieks te maken. De meeste namen kan ik waarschijnlijk raden, maar ik wil er zeker zijn.


Dat lijkt me een goed idee! Ik ben zeer benieuwd...

LAT: Ephemeris Alcuini iter in pausa laboris lexi, atque iter multa de crise economica ac de Obama vidi. Etiam mihi gaudivi videre quod Internationale Tribunal Hagense (ICC) decrevit apprehendendum atque in ius vocandum esse praesidentem Sudaniae, Omar Hassan al-Bashir - sed non credo fieret. Etiam de "reperto astronomico incredibile" lexi: galaxia reperta est medio huius duo permagni hiatus nigri adsint circum se invicem revolventes, unus cum massam de modo 20 milionies de massis solis nostri, maioris massa aestimatur aequari massa miliardi solis. Nuntia in "Natura" data est de studiosibus US-Americanis speculae astronomicae ad urbem Tucson civitatis Arizonae (ego ibi fuit anno domini 1995).

In Ephemeris there was as usual something about the economical crisis and about Obama, and also the good news about the Sudanese president being indicted by the international court in den Haag (though I doubt that he will ever be caught and brought to justice, - too many friends). But then I also saw a message about the find of two black holes rotatating around each other in the center of a faraway galaxy - apparently it has been thought that this situation would never happen because they would coalesce, but here they are - a big fat one and a tiny one of just 20 mio.solar masses. The find was reported by astronomers from the observatory outside Tucson, Arizona USA - and to be honest my first reaction was not "how interesting", but "I've been there" (at the observatory of Tucson of course - not at the black holes, otherwise I wouldn't be here today).

Tuscon, Arizona, USA, there is the huge meteorite crater, isn't it? I have seen many photos of this crater, because it is very famous. So there is a professional observatory near-by. You are lucky that you have the chance to visit such interesting places!

No, the Arizona meteor Crater is to the East of Flagstaff. Tucson is further South

NL: - Ik zit hier in de mediotheek / bibliotheek - Even maar eens de link naar Ephemeris gebruikt en onder "Scientiae" in het Latijn het artikel over de zwarte gaten gelezen zover ik het kan begrijpen zonder Latijns woordenboek. Helaas kan ik hier op mijn publieke internetplek niets uitprinten, want hier is geen printer aangesloten.

Ik vind het namelijk goed dat dergelijke artikelen niet zo lang zijn. In "Sterne und Weltraum" staan vaak artikelen van 6-8 pagina's, dat is mij meestal te lang.

Of het tijdschrift "Bild der Wissenschaft" nou "peer-reviewd" is of niet, valt voor mij niet te achterhalen, want ik heb het hele tijdschrift doorgekeken en daarin geen informatie gevonden. Aangezien het inhoudelijke niveau van dit tijdschrift zou het eigenlijk "peer-reviewd" moeten zijn.

Zo, ik heb me nu de "Scientiae" artikelen uit Ephmeris uitgeprint en gelijk "Ephemeris" op de favorieten gezet, zodat ik dit tijdschrift ook zonder link goed kan raadplegen. De Latijnse wetenschapsartikelen zijn mooi kort, zodat mijn wat ingeroest Latijn niet wordt overbelast.

I've heard that there's the possibility visit Father Christmas (Santa) there, in norht Finland!!


There certainly is. Here are the hard facts: there is a big Santa-land (some kind of Disneyland I suppose, - I haven't visited it), and just where the Polar circle is supposed to cross the main road northwards out of Rovaniemi there is a big building with a lot of Santa-oriented stuff - all year round! The thing they have forgotten to mention is that the Polar Circle isn't crossing the road there any more. The rotation axis of the Earth is wiggling a little, and that means that the Poles, The Polar circles, Equinoxes and Equator all move slightly - and now the Polar circle is running through the airport of Rovaniemi a few kilometers further North. So there may be people who think they have crossed the Polar Circle, but just failed to do it. I made that mistake during my first visit there, - that was before they built the Santa monsterhouse.


I have looked to the website and it's truly a monsterhouse I agree, especially the Santapark's stupid and annyoing music. It's nasty that they make think you crossed the Polar Circle but you didn't. Have you visited Disneyland? Maybe it would be fun but i don't like those things as the roller coasters and other ones at all: if a person offer to me 1000000000000000000 euros, I wouldn't enter in those, but probably there are pretty things as well, cartoons animals for example Bugs Bunny, Winnie the Pooh and more. I would like to see them.

B.t.w. the same thing applies to the Equator. In Ecuador there is a marker for the Equator, but because it has moved the correct place to be is now a few kilometers away at an extinct volcano, which I have had the pleasure of visiting some years ago.


Wow. I'd like to visit Ecuador as well, and especially Galapagos and see the enomrous tortoises who are very sweet.

Quote:
And now for the big question: where does Santa live? Some say the North Pole, some say Greenland and the Finns look at their wallets and say Rovaniemi. I feel certain that at least Rudolph the Reindeer lives in Rovaniemi, because there aren't any reindeer in Greenland (could you see Father Christmas on a dog sledge? - that would be Greenland). His marketing department certainly lies in Finland, but Santa would be a fool to stay there. My guess is that he lives most of the year in an igloo on Greenland just to get away from all that commercialism that the Finns have built up around him. And around Christmas nobody can find him because of the millions of stressed family fathers in red coats and false beards that run around everywhere.


There aren't reindeer in Greenland???? My parents told that nobody can meet with Father Christmas and that all those ones who are in red coats and false beards are fake ones (they said that they are his assistants, btu of course therefore fake).But anyway he died some hundreds year ago.

If I will go to Finnland, I'd like to see the aurore.

IT: Anch'io. Mi piacerebbe molto vedere le aurore borealis. Iversen, hai gia visto questo spettacolo naturale nella Scandinavia? Quali colori? Sulle fotografie delle reviste dell'astronomia sono bellisime. Qualche membri del mio club dell'astronomia hanno visto delle piccole aurore rosse nella mia propria citta. Ma io non ho mai visto qualcosa del genere nella natura. Purtroppo!

ASTRONOMIEVORTRAG IN MEINEM ASTRONOMIECLUB AM FREITAGABEND

DE: Thema des Vortrags von R.G. waren die Sichtbarkeiten der beiden inneren Planeten Merkur und Venus. Dabei wurden - mir bereits von früheren Vorträgen her bekannte - Begriffe wie obere und untere Konjunktion erläutert. Außerdem wann es eine Abendsichtbarkeit und wann es eine Morgensichtbarkeit der Venus gibt. Am 27. März 2009 wird die untere Konjunktion sein und kurz davor wird es am 24./25. März sowohl eine Abend- als auch eine Morgensichtbarkeit geben. Natürlich kamen auch die Venusphasen zur Sprache, die bereits von Galileo Galiei entdeckt worden waren. Und über Merkur wurde insbesondere gesagt, dass der nur 5-6 mal im Jahr überhaupt beobachtbar ist und dann nur jeweils 20 Minuten bis maximal eine 3/4 - Stunde lang. Dauer des Vortrags: ca. 60 Minuten
