Doorstep Astronomy: Spot 5 Planets by Joe Rao
13/02/2009

This month you'll have an opportunity to see all five naked-eye planets – but not all at once. Two of them are evening objects, while the other three are clustered together low in the east-southeast sky deep in the dawn twilight.
The planets move around in our sky and become brighter and dimmer over time depending on where they are in their orbits around the sun. Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are never visible to the naked eye. Here's what you can look for:
 

Για τους λάτρεις της ομορφιάς του έναστρου ουρανού
13/02/2009

Αυτόν το μήνα θα μπορέσουμε να δούμε και τους 5 πλανήτες με γυμνό μάτι - αλλά όχι όλους μαζί. Δύο από αυτούς θα είναι ορατοί βράδυ, ενώ την ώρα που χαράζει οι άλλοι τρεις θα εμφανιστούν μαζί, με το πρώτο φως της αυγής, χαμηλά στον ουρανό, ανατολικά - νοτιοανατολικά.
Ένα άρθρο του αστρονόμου Joe Rao που δημοσιεύθηκε στο διαδίκτυο, μας ενημερώνει αναλυτικά για τα πλανητικά φαινόμενα του Φεβρουαρίου. Παρατίθεται εδώ ολόκληρο το άρθρο του Joe Rao, έτσι ώστε να δοθεί η ευκαιρία στους ενδιαφερόμενους για αναλυτικότερη ενημέρωση.

March 20 – 23: “The Magic of the Twelfth-Parts”
The Magic of the Twelfth-Parts

The Hellenistic twelfth-parts — corresponding in terms of calculation to twelfth harmonics or the Indian dwadasamsas — have been largely ignored by would-be practitioners of Hellenistic astrology. Although they are dutifully reported by a number of authors, there is precious little said about their interpretation in the surviving sources, so there has been the nagging problem of the kind of information that a twelfth-part provides in a natal reading.
