June 30th- International Asteroid Day

अंतर्राष्ट्रीय शुद्र ग्रह दिवस, 30 जून

Asteroid Day,  United Nations’ day of global awareness and education
About asteroids, is observed its sixth year today Thirtieth  June.
Asteroid Day , to promote awareness and provide knowledge to
The  public about the importance of asteroids in our solar system history, And the role they play in our solar system today.Today is the day of the Largest asteroid impact of Earth in recorded history (Tunguska).

Asteroid Day  evolved to include  participation of  national space Agencies,
ESA,  JAXA, Roscosmos, ISRO, NASA, Scientists, astronomers, worldwide.

“Asteroid Day encourages the public and governments to learn more about Asteroids,  the origin of our Solar System, and to support the resources necessary to find and deflect asteroids ”. explains Dr. Brian May.  Through the Luxembourg Space Agency,  leads the Space Resources. Its initiative

Is instrumental in the expansion of Asteroid Day, Marc Serresha.Etienne_Schneider” CEO of the Luxembourg Space Agency states “Luxembourg is proud to be the global Headquarters for Asteroid Day and to aid in inspiring countries around the world to participate in this United Nations Day of education and awareness.

“On Asteroid Day, we share the latest information on the search for near-Earth asteroids that might pose a threat to our planet and discuss the space technologies we might apply together to help prevent a cosmic disaster. I’m especially interested in the joint NASA-ESA programs DART and HERA to demonstrate how we can deflect a near-Earth object.” shared Dr. Tom Jones, NASA astronaut, Association of Space Explorers. “Asteroid Day rightly demands that asteroids must be discovered since they pose a risk to our planet from time to time. The combination of NASA’s deflection mission DART and ESA’s mission HERA allows us to find out how asteroid deflection works and, at the same time, learn more about these celestial bodies. I am proud that OHB is the designated industrial prime for the HERA mission.” says OHB’s Marc Scheper, Head of Space Transportation, Robotic Missions and Exploration.

NO SHADOW DAY August 23rd.

 

What a wonderful creation of God the Almighty,
Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient-mighty!
Sun and moon, stars and planets, sky and earth, hills and mountainside
Nature’s manifestation-God’s magnificence- indeed great!

Shadows -morning to noon and noon to evening lovely watch
Long shadows getting smaller and smaller-growing taller
And taller- bad friendship morn to noon shadow like and good
Friendship is like noon to evening shadow like- nature’s beauty!

Lack of shadow is beautiful!Happens twice a year,
For places between twenty three point five plus and minus
Degrees latitude! The Sun is almost never exactly overhead
At noon, but transits a bit lower in altitude, a bit
To the north or south. Earth’s rotation axis is inclined
To the plane of its revolution around the Sun – varies seasons!.
Sun, in its highest point of the day, will move south to North
Of the celestial equator-Uttarayan and Dakshinayanin a year!.
The northern most and southern most two solstices,
And the crossing of the Sun across the equator two equinoxes.

For people living between the degrees referred the Sun’s declination
Equals to their latitude twice On these two days, the Sun
Will be exactly overhead at noon and will not cast a shadow on the ground.
This Zero Shadow Day falls today in Namakkal District of Tamil Nadu!

GALILEO DISCOVERS!(7th January)


India that is Bharath my Holy and sacred Motherland
Was the master of astrology based on astronomy grand
For centuries and centuries- the earliest in the world
Sun and moon, planets and stars –their movements well studied and researched!

We gave the exalted position to the astronomical
Phenomena- as Gods in all our temples-Navagrahas
Offer prayers all the days around the year- their movements
Planet to planet-with special prayers invoking their grace!

To day was the day that saw Galileo discovering first
Three satellites of Jupiter- in Sixteen Ten-deemed to be great!
Galeileo Galeilei astronomer, physicist, engineer,
Philosopher, Mathematician-Father of Modern Physics!

Father of observational astronomy, father of the
Scientific method- Father of Scince- his findings rejected by the clergy
Kept under house arrest for decades-peculiar is the
Way of the world! We salute him as we salute Rishi-Scientists!

In the light that is white
In its power and energy
Different wave lengths
Different types!
As seven horses that pull
The Chariot of the SUN,
Start as seven colors.
Shower their rays in the sky,
Sow, make seeds, see they sprout
Infra red not seen in the light
Come out as long sound waves!
They go left and right
Give strength
X-rays
Act as short light waves!
These two-long and short
Escapes our magnetic circle
Circle in our eyes
Out of bounds
Out of control
Fail, escape
Go astray uncontrolled!
ithin limits
Unstopped, not changing tracks
They swim-the rays swim!
Travels light equaling sound
Unseen waves
Magnetic, radio and others
Equal to the rays of the light
Travel as waves!
They are
Variations of light
Other sides of light
Other editions of light
Speed of light
Unchanging speed
Never derailing
Never changing the tracks
Tracks in tact
Tracks never turning
Never in confusion
Bring in surprises!
Spring in wonders!
Important points in the space
Novels
The LIGHT
Wonder of wonders!
Surprise of the surprises!!

Celestial events
As
Magical shows
Mathematical riddles
Provides joy,

And then
Disappear and die!
Again appear
Again and again appear
Reappear, disappear!
Thus
In Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn
In both the poles
Ever fertile
Never drying
Ever black
Magnetic fields
And flashing magnetic rays
Blink and blink
Eyelids-opening and closing
Speak through their eyes!
These indeed are
The Celestial events
Their basic cause!
Hydrogen
In the shape of the skin of a fruit
With another toxic gas like element
With their power
Create celestial light!
These planets beautiful
Adding beauty.
May be
All covered,
Face covered,
As a bed spread
Densely covered!
Like a hidden object
Hidden-hidden

Truths of the past and future
Do plunge us in surprise!
Give us shocks
Make us wonder!
Our galaxy
Where we live
Milky Way
Its zone where we breathe
In the Milky Way zone
Milk as a tiny atom
Speeding bullet like atom
As shattering atom
As serious Sun storm
Sun is seated in a corner!
From the center of the Zone
Sun is
Fifty thousand light year away!
Away or jumping
Totters never!
The Sun that gives light and heat
To the corridors of the Milky Way
In the sky it floats at a speed-
Speed of sixty
Six thousand kilometers!
Sun- the great speedster Sun
Needs two and a half light years
To go round the Milky Way galaxy!
The TIME rolls by- just rolls by!

Miranda- the moon traced in 1948. 

Universe indeed is a great Chariot on the Move
Created by the Omnipotent Almighty -to prove
That all His creations are for peace and amity
Sun and moon, stars and planets, all in sky in unity.

We know of one Sun and Moon , planets nine, stars aplenty
There are more Suns and Moons than the world knows of here and now
Miranda is the eleventh of Uranus’ moons and is
The fifth largest; Miranda named after a character.

The daughter of the magician Prospero in Tempest
Shakespeare’s creation! discovered today fifty nine
Years ago-in forty eight-astronomical marvel
Many scientific truths may delight in future! as well.

22.

We adore
The Mother Earth-
Our beloved mother
Caring and powerful mother!
Thanks to twin forces
Roaming rotation
Teasing whirlpool
She revolves around herself!
The other
Thanks to the Lord of Light
The SUN –rotates!
Powerful forces twins
The earth
Keeps stable
Straightens
Justifies
Strengthens!
Glides, swims,
Dances sans a let
Eternal dance
Exciting dance!
Sleeps too!
Earth bound by these two forces
Its weight, density, volume
Causes attraction,
Becomes a cause
Becomes an effect!

23.
It is felt
Sub planets
Who go around,
In scales big or small
The earth, space, other planets
Have energy just to go around!
The light and weightless
Have a limited energy.
May be it is
As prescribed,
As ordained,
As predetermined!
Yet, they can stand
With strength unknown!
All under one rule
One principle
Bound and act.
The Sun that pushed out
This Earth,
This space,
This lunar world,
This world that is
Rotating and revolving
Celebrates its birth day
Four hundred crore years rolled by!
But the birth day of the man
Of the universe
Its elements
Returns never!

24.
Our Holy Mother Earth has
Twenty Five Thousand kilometers of
Circumference
Eight thousand kilometers of
Diameter!
Earth that is destined
With all its data and accounts
Hastens, moves fast, racing against
Destiny.
Goes round the orbit
Is it Victory procession?
May not be:
It grudges,
It pours out,
The world
At the speed of
One thousand kilometers
Revolves itself slightly inclined!
Makes day and night;
Revolving around the Sun
At a speed of
Seventy two thousand miles an hour!
Plunges us into wonder!
Man
Things dead and alive
Known well
The Twin powers, energy, actions
Neat and sacred; majestic and matured!

UNIVERSE- CHARIOT ON THE MOVE PART IV

(10)

With speed
With great speed
With singing speed
With speeding speed
With turning speed
To the attraction of each
To the sidetracking of each
Universe moving with supersonic speed,
Towards achieving its end
Cherished goal
Wall-less space, waves of space
Trying to dash against each!
Within, what happens within and out
It makes
Life’s calculations and transactions
Filled with speed, moves fast
In the vacuums it penetrates
Vacuum becomes different space
Vacuum is created
Makes the earth, made to feel the earth,
Creates life in the earth
Dances and delights
Goes ferocious
Dancing like a dancer
Like Bharatha natya
Goes round and round in circles,
Makes revolving space and the universe
Gives meaning to all
Bright warmth energy
Sends light to the earth and space
Jumps into
With enormous wonder
As energy and bundles of potency and might
As heaps of energy, narrow and in addition,
As energy consolidated
With convenience and as a leader strong
Universe sets on journey with its retinue
Without knowing the route!
With the hint of origin of energy and matter
Within hiding the seeds of matter
Lying deep
Like a smoke entered in, organized in
Ingrained, covered with and blossomed!

(11)
In the space
The Universe continues
To develop, expand, broaden
Even today with its ferociousness
In its own shape-oval,
Square, shape of the four Vedas,
According to the laws and rules fast
Prescribed by self, expands
Accurately!
Following another firework,
Festive procession of the chariot
Reaches its base; comes its position.
The Universe on its own
Rises like a snake with its broad hood
With the threatening wrath
Rests, restlessly rests, sans feelings and life
Endless ending, endless calculation of time.
Time less, unchanging,
Arithmetical
Calculations beyond calculations!

(12)

Time is space!
Another dimension of the Universe.
To seek clarity,
Identifying the Universe
Lending meaning to the Universe
Giving titles
Encouraging,
Providing platform for research
Prompting, appearing, disappearing
Is the TIME in its fourth dimension fine.
Three dimensions
Triggered by height
Made to step out by its breadth
Revolved with length, lengthy arithmetic
Universe is measured
Researched, commenced, explained
Opened, searched
Seen, calculated
In terms of arithmetic within arithmetic,
Subjected to arithmetic
Submitting to arithmetic
Subjected to opinion
Submitting to
Is indeed fourth dimension named TIME!
With this dimension alone
It becomes complete, it sees an end,
Gets straightens, , gets fulfillment,
Time stands and also runs.
Disappears.
Can be rediscovered and brought back
Within the boundary of long journey
With arithmetical accuracy!
