The Constellations

An astronomer explains how they form, why they appear to twinkle, how they got their name, and much more.

That would be about million miles across, which is over three times the distance between Earth and the sun.

Ancient Mayan civilization, flourished from B. In particular, the Dresden Codex contains the most details of such ancient Mayan heritage. Page 24 and those from 46 to 50 of the Dresden Codex describe the Mayan Venus calendar along with the augural descriptions. We note that the calendar in Dresden Codex is Venus-solar calendar. Our work focuses on the possibility that the calendar was made to work in conjunction with the periodic appearance of constellations on the sky. By analyzing the descriptions in the Venus pages, we propose that the columns in each page describe the motion of Venus with respect to major constellations at dates corresponding to special events while the calendar dates increase horizontally in the synodic period of Venus.

The Constellations

Ever since people first wandered the Earth, great significance has been given to the celestial objects seen in the sky. Throughout human history and across many different cultures, names and mythical stories have been attributed to the star patterns in the night sky, thus giving birth to what we know as constellations.

Constellation names, like the names of stars , come from a variety of sources and each has a different story and meaning behind it. The names of ancient constellations mostly come from Greek and Roman mythology, while most of the constellations created more recently were named after scientific instruments and exotic animals. Constellation names that come from Greek mythology, including the names of the zodiac constellations , are the ones that are best known.

A constellation is an area on the celestial sphere in which a group of visible stars forms a perceived outline or pattern, typically representing an animal, mythological person or creature, or an inanimate object.

Беккер рассеянно кивнул: - Хорошо. Бело-красно-синие волосы, майка, серьга с черепом в ухе. Что. - Больше. Панк да и. Панк да и. Беккер принадлежал к миру людей, носивших университетские свитера и консервативные стрижки, - он просто не мог представить себе образ, который нарисовала Росио.

Я по уши опутан кабелем. Если ты хочешь назначить мне свидание, я освобожусь. Если же нет, то позвони электрикам.

В течение первого часа они, казалось, даже не замечали его присутствия. Обступив громадный стол, они говорили на языке, которого Беккеру прежде никогда не доводилось слышать, - о поточных шифрах, самоуничтожающихся генераторах, ранцевых вариантах, протоколах нулевого понимания, точках единственности. Беккер наблюдал за ними, чувствуя себя здесь лишним.

Сьюзан в отчаянии колотила в дверную панель, но все было бесполезно. Шифр, подумала. Кабинет постепенно утопал в дыму.
