THE UNFATHOMABLE CHRONICLES OF THE WONDERS OF THE COSMOS
A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORLD OF ASTRONOMY. ( THE WONDERS OF THE COSMOS)
The most inventive and dynamic field in all of science is Astronomy. There are discoveries every single day almost daily actually in the areas of exoplanets, black holes, distant galaxies, and cosmology. This excitement of knowledge by technology that’s enabling a new generation of large telescopes on the ground and in space. The yearning to evaluate and understand our exact place in this eternal abyss has been an endless labyrinth of questions. So join me and experience the thrill of astronomy!
THE CRITICAL DISCOVERY.
Science starts with curiosity …something that is born in all of us The starting point is to find patterns in the natural world. Such patterns can evaluate an intricate impression of us. The search for logic everywhere is most prevalent among one another. But the science of Astronomy doesn’t deal only with Logic. It comprehends all the physical aspects of Metaphysics and Epistemology as well……The fundamental analysis of objects that are existing beyond our visual reach can be found from the following observational functions…..Deduction, Induction, Estimation, Scientific limitation………and the concept of Uncertainty must also be taken into account. Astronomy is one of the oldest science and some of the important insights about the Universe above us were gained even before the invention of Telescopes. Science combines logic and evidence to the individual understanding of the natural world around us., including the remote aspects and inaccessible regions of Space and Time.
The fundamental inspiration for the evasive subject of Astronomy is the night sky. Even though modern astronomy is performed using large refracting telescopes and Astrophotographic camera, the serene beauty of the night sky is the reason most astronomers became hooked on their subject. Anyone can understand this experience. just travel far away from the city or suburbs or else to a place where there’s little or no pollution and light. you can see thousands of stars scattered like gems on a velvet backdrop. You will also be able to see the pale arch of the Milky Way in its grandeur. You will surely understand the awe and mesmerism that humans have felt for thousands of years when they contemplated the night sky above us.
THE HISTORY OF ASTRONOMY.
The Sun, Moon, and the stars all move in quite predictable ways. Throughout the history of Mankind, different cultures all over the world have used these patterns to regulate and order their lives. For agricultural purposes, they needed to establish a way to identify the days, Henceforth the calendar was invented and they used the solstices and equinoxes as seasonal indicators. For navigating across land or sea, they needed a viable map to identify their directions for their destinations. So they employed the concept of directional analysis using star patterns or constellations. Many astronomical observations led to the construction of aligned temples in many parts of the world. These were not observatories or such, but an objectifiable analysis of Astronomy. Ancient cultures built some very impressive structures that incorporated a varied number of astronomical functions and information.
NAVIGATING THROUGH THE ABYSS.
Most people are promptly aware that they can find their way at night by the stars. And also They know that there is a star called the North Star, Polaris, which is always located in the northern direction. But there are many other features of the sky that we should be familiar with and employ for identifying through the Abyss. It’s quite easy to navigate through the night sky if we are aware of the directions by taking the sun and moon. The science of Astronomy can only be mastered by people with extreme patience and tenacity.
THE SKY TERMINOLOGIES
Learning some of the basic sky terminologies is a useful first step. Initially take yourself away from any sort of luminous place cause it’ll be quite hard to set up your eyesight to It’ll take at least 30 minutes for our eyes to tune themselves for this purpose. Now for the basic sky terminologies, The point directly over our head is called the zenith. An imaginary line overhead, from the due south point on the horizon through to the zenith, to the due north point on the horizon, is called the meridian. The Sun, Moon, and all the stars and planets rise on the east side of the meridian, crosses the meridian, and sets on the west side of the meridian. The ancient term A.M. (from the Latin phrase, antemeridian, or before the meridian) refers to the first half of the daylight period before the Sun crosses the meridian. The term P.M. (post meridiem or after meridian) refers to the second half of the day after the Sun crosses the meridian. The altitude of an object is its angular distance above the horizon measured from 0 degrees at the horizon to 90 degrees overhead. The azimuth of an object is its angular distance around the horizon, measured towards the east from the north from 0 degrees to 360 degree
Full description of the declination = +47 degree 15′ 58” north of the celestial equator.
24 hours full rotation = 360 degrees.
Rising and setting of the cellar stellar80 degrees.
1-hour typical angle between the constellations = 15 degrees
4 minutes for a star to cross two moon diameters = 1 degree
1 minute time for the ross rs = 1/4 degree.
THERAPEUTIC ASSESSMENT OF STAR GAZING
According to the words of the famous philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson ” If a man would ever be alone let him look at the stars…….” As the saying goes every time a man feels down and depressed He urns his back on everything Watching into the Abyss its vastness, its enigmatic expanse will spark an optimistic outlook on life. Looking into the deep unending vastness will make us idealize our whole existence henceforth Stargazing can also be considered as ee therapy We, Humans,s, are driven by our yearning for all the materialistic gains all our life. But The true purpose of living is not to run behind things that’ll end up becoming a waste as such, but by gaining the true perspective of living…
