The the oldest globe to depict the Americas (c. 1504)

The 512-year-old globe – about the size of a grapefruit – was made from the lower halves of two ostrich eggs. It was purchased in 2012 at the London Map Fair from a dealer who said it had been in an important European collection for many decades.

The globe contains ships of different types, monsters, intertwining waves, a shipwrecked sailor, 71 place names, and one phrase in Latin – ‘HIC SVNT DRACONES’ (here are the dragons).

Only seven of the names are in the Western Hemisphere. No names are shown for North America, which is represented as a group of scattered islands; three names are shown in South America – ‘Mundus Novus’ (New World), ‘Terra de Brazil,’ and ‘Terra Sanctae Crucis’ (Land of the Holy Cross).

For many countries and territories in the world including Japan, Brazil and Arabia this is the oldest known engraved depiction on a globe.

“When I heard of this globe, I was initially skeptical about its date, origin, geography and provenance, but I had to find out for myself,” explained Dr Stefaan Missinne, an independent research scholar from Belgium and the author of a paper describing the find in the journal Portolan.

Until now, it was thought that the oldest globe to show the New World was the Lenox Globe at the New York Public Library, but Dr Missinne presents evidence that the ostrich egg globe was actually used to cast the copper Lenox globe, putting its date – 1504.

Finish of the tool I ground from my previous post. Only had to re-grind the relief once... but of course I then goofed the next operation... I didn't have a pitch gage to check the 2.25mm and I accidentally cut 2.5mm. There's always another day. #instamachinist #manuallathe #formtool #hemisphere #goofedanyway

December solstice 2017 arrives on December 21 at 16:28 UTC. High summer for the Southern Hemisphere. For the Northern Hemisphere, the return of more sunlight!

The earliest people on Earth knew that the sun’s path across the sky, the length of daylight, and the location of the sunrise and sunset all shifted in a regular way throughout the year. They built monuments such as Stonehenge in England – or, for example, at Machu Picchu in Peru – to follow the sun’s yearly progress.

But we today see the solstice differently. We can picture it from the vantage point of space. Today, we know that the solstice is an astronomical event, caused by Earth’s tilt on its axis, and its motion in orbit around the sun.

Because Earth doesn’t orbit upright, but is instead tilted on its axis by 23-and-a-half degrees, Earth’s Northern and Southern Hemispheres trade places in receiving the sun’s light and warmth most directly. The tilt of the Earth – not our distance from the sun – is what causes winter and summer. At the December solstice, the Northern Hemisphere is leaning most away from the sun for the year.

At the December solstice, Earth is positioned in its orbit so that the sun stays below the north pole horizon. As seen from 23-and-a-half degrees south of the equator, at the imaginary line encircling the globe known as the Tropic of Capricorn, the sun shines directly overhead at noon. This is as far south as the sun ever gets. All locations south of the equator have day lengths greater than 12 hours at the December solstice. Meanwhile, all locations north of the equator have day lengths less than 12 hours.

For us on the northern part of Earth, the shortest day comes at the solstice. After the winter solstice, the days get longer, and the nights shorter. It’s a seasonal shift that nearly everyone notices.

Late dawn. Early sunset. Short day. Long night. For us in the Northern Hemisphere, the December solstice marks the longest night and shortest day of the year. Meanwhile, on the day of the December solstice, the Southern Hemisphere has its longest day and shortest night. This special day is on Thursday, December 21 at 16:28 UTC (December 21 at 10:28 a.m. CST).

Geminids of the North (2017 Dec 15)
Image Credit & Copyright: Yin Hao

Explanation: Earth's annual Geminid meteor shower did not disappoint as our fair planet plowed through dust from active asteroid 3200 Phaethon. Captured in this northern hemisphere nightscape, the meteors stream away from the shower's radiant in Gemini. To create the image, 37 individual frames recording meteor streaks were taken over period of 8.5 hours during the night of December 12/13. In the final composite they were selected and registered against the starry sky above a radio telescope dish of MUSER, a solar-dedicated radio telescope array at astronomically-named Mingantu Station in Inner Mongolia, China, about 400 kilometers from Beijing. Sirius, alpha star of Canis Major, shines brightly just above the radio dish and the Milky Way stretches toward the zenith. Yellowish Betelgeuse is a standout in Orion to the right of the northen Milky Way. The shower's radiant is at top left, high above the horizon near Castor and Pollux the twin stars of Gemini. The radiant effect is due to perspective as the parallel meteor tracks appear to converge in the distance. Gemini's meteors enter Earth's atmosphere traveling at about 22 kilometers per second.

The Tadpole Galaxy :
The Tadpole Galaxy is the result of two or more galaxies colliding with o each other. In a rude way, we called it " disrupted barred spiral galaxy ". The location of the galaxy is in the northern hemisphere constellation called Draco and it is about 420 million light-years from Earth . It is famous for its massive tail of bright blue stars spreading about 280,000 light-years in length. It was found by the Hubble Space Telescope in the 1990's. Sadly, it is predicted that it will eventually lose it tails causing the tails to form its own galaxy and just maybe become its satellite
