牛郎和织女 Sep 5, 2015

明亮的满月把很多美丽的中国神话瞬间展现眼前。

比任何的传说都幽怨感人。

其中算是牛郎和织女的爱情故事。

我们小学時就读到,或者当父母或慈祥的祖父母说故事时听来的。

日本摄影师 Kagaya 将这个被银河分开的传奇用照相机拍下来。

与你们分享。

牛郎 织女 Sep 6, 2015



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summer_Triangle

The Summer Triangle is an astronomical asterism involving an imaginary triangle drawn on the northern hemisphere's celestial sphere, with its defining vertices at Altair, Deneb, and Vega, the brightest stars in the three constellations of Aquila, Cygnus, and Lyra, respectively.

... These are the same stars recognized in the Chinese legend of The Weaver Girl and the Cowherd, a story dating back some 2,600 years, celebrated in the Qixi Festival. In the mid- to late 20th century, before INS, GPS and other electronic/mechanical equipment took their places in military aircraft, United States Air Force navigators training at the now-defunct Mather Air Force Base in Rancho Cordova, California referred to this asterism as the "Navigator's Triangle"

Now let's talk distances. Vega is the brightest of the three stars, but is not the closest. That honor goes to Altair who’s only 17 light-years away from us. With professional telescopes, we can actually see that Altair is spinning rapidly. It spins so fast that it has squished its shape to resemble a blue white egg.

Vega is the second closest at about 25 light-years away. That means that the light you see left Vega 25 years ago; that was back when James had hair.

Ha ha. Anyhow, Deneb is not only the farthest of the three; it is perhaps the farthest star you could see with the naked eye, at a whopping 3,000 light-years away. We can still see it as a bright star. That means Deneb must be humongous. Here is a side-by-side comparison of the three Summer Triangle stars. Deneb dwarfs the other two.

Sky cultures Sep 6, 2015

http://www.stellarium.org/wiki/index.php/Sky_cultures
Sky culture is a term used by Stellarium referring to the way a culture describing the sky and celestial objects. In the field of astronomy, the point of concern about a sky culture is how stars are named and related to each other within this culture.

CHINESE
The Chinese culture keeps one of the most detailed observation data of the celestial before 18th century, when Western astronomy began having breakthrough discoveries with the help of scientific method.

Xingguans
The major difference between Xingguan and constellation is that while constellation refers to a definite area upon the celestial sphere, Xingguan only refers to a pattern of stars. Its closest term in Western culture might be asterism, though unlike asterisms, Xingguans have their official status. Chen Zhuo (Chinese:陈卓)(3rd Century30s~?), Scientist of East Wu Country, linked the Shi’s, Gan’s and Wuxian’s XingGuans into one XingGuan System. And there are 1464 stars/283 XingGuans in that system. That Xingguan system is the earliest completed system as we know. ...

Xiangs
The Xingguans get together makes four Xiangs(in Chinese character is 象, pronounce: xiang \, mainly means: view, show, appeared…). You can think about Xiang is a large Xingguan. There are four Xiangs named Zhuque, Xuanwu, Qinglong and Baihu. They are all animals in the old storys, but none in the real world just like Chinese dragon or phoenix bird. Zhuque (in Chinese character is 朱雀), similar meaning is red bird, maybe like the phoenix, the power of fire, the south, the back, the summer. Xuanwu (in Chinese character is 玄武), an animal fixed with snake and turtle, the darkness messager, the power of water, the north, the front, the winter. Qinglong (in Chinese character is 青龙), similar meaning is blue dragon, the east, the right, the Spring. Baihu (in Chinese character is 白虎), similar meaning is white tiger, the west, the left, the autumn/fall.

Golden Thread Sep 9, 2015

http://www.itv.com/news/story/2015-09-09/queen-is-britains-longest-reigning-monarch/



Queen is Britain's longest-reigning monarch

The Queen has thanked people from around the world for their "touching messages of great kindness" on the day she becomes Britain's longest-reigning monarch.

Her Majesty will have served for 63 years and seven months - approximately 23,226 days, 16 hours and approximately 30 minutes - by around 5.30pm today, overtaking the previous record held by Queen Victoria.

She told well-wishers in the Scottish town of Tweedbank that it was not a milestone she had never aspired to but that she was "very grateful" for the messages of support.

Earlier, David Cameron told the Commons that her reign had been "a golden thread running through three post-war generations".

God Bless America (Ronan Tynan)

While the storm clouds gather far across the sea
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer

God Bless America
Land that I love
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with a light from above
From the mountains, to the prairies
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, my home sweet home
