    -Thanks
    -It´s curious, but fortunately the difference is not large enough to bother you. I became a bit hypermetric too, after surgery. It is funny, because I was used to place the book very near to the eyes.
    -About the new East Temple here in São Paulo- As there isn´t any address on the link you posted, maybe they are still looking for or buying the terrain of the new temple. Covid probably retarded plans.
    -O' Froth Tide Moon/Orion Sleeps (within)- Clever transformation- like the serenity of the poem.
    - Didn´t know Psychedelic Space Rock could be so relaxing- Appreciating that right now!
    -Grand Suite- It was not available on your link, but I found the Suite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Isic2Z2e2xs. I think he captured the characteristics of each planet so well.
    - Enjoyed Lewis poem about the 7 planets. It reminds me of older English poems.
    Great start, tailor!

    -Poem-Evening Star-an improvable Edgar Allan Poe

    EVENING STAR.
    Edgar Allan Poe

    ’Twas noontide of summer,
    And mid-time of night;
    And stars, in their orbits,
    Shone pale, thro’ the light
    Of the brighter, cold moon, [page 29:]
    ’Mid planets her slaves,
    Herself in the Heavens,
    Her beam on the waves.
    I gaz’d awhile
    On her cold smile;
    Too cold — too cold for me —
    There pass’d, as a shroud,
    A fleecy cloud,
    And I turn’d away to thee,
    Proud Evening Star,
    In thy glory afar,
    And dearer thy beam shall be;
    For joy to my heart
    Is the proud part
    Thou bearest in Heav’n at night,
    And more I admire
    Thy distant fire,
    Than that colder, lowly light.

    Nostalgic: Great music: timeless... LZ at their finest.

    UN&P... Interesting the influences of the heavens on our lives re: Astrology. I wonder the implications of the great conjunction of 12/21/2020.

    Edgar Allan Poe's poem: enjoyed

    - 12/21/2020 Jupiter & Saturn in conjunction. Good picture.! "I wonder the implications of the great conjunction of 12/21/2020". I believe particularly in US these implications can already be felt: https://risingwoman.com/special-astr...december-2020/ Rather tough, but I think there may be positive implications too, because the energy of both planets tend to equilibrate.
    - This poem is one of your great finds, tailor:" Many Chaucer scholars regard it as the poet's finest work. As a finished long poem it is more self-contained than the better known but ultimately unfinished The Canterbury Tales." "The poem had an important legacy for later writers. Robert Henryson's Scots poem The Testament of Cresseid imagined a tragic fate for Criseyde not given by Chaucer. In historical editions of the English Troilus and Criseyde, Henryson's distinct and separate work was sometimes included without accreditation as an "epilogue" to Chaucer's tale. Other texts, for example John Metham's Amoryus and Cleopes (c. 1449), adapt language and authorship strategies from the famous predecessor poem.[2] Shakespeare's tragedy Troilus and Cressida, although much blacker[clarification needed] in tone, was also based in part on the material."https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troilus_and_Criseyde. I read the play by Shakespeare many years ago, but don´t remember it any more.
    RIP Arecibo- Interesting link about Arecibo's discoveries. Putting it into the astronomy thread though I fear no one gets there any more

    -Colorizing space photos- Interesting video. Never thought about the complexity of the process of coloring astronomy pics.

    "Saturn represents rules, regulations, government and the traditional ways of doing this. Jupiter represents blessings, spiritual insights, and new ways of seeing things. There will be a battle between these two planets over the next year as they travel through Aquarius."... Bring it on 2021 !!!

    Nostalgic corner: Brought a smile to my face... love to watch tap dancing, and a moon walk too !! Incredible.

    Starry Night: I'm a big van Gogh fan; I have the van Gogh Museum on my facebook feed and have used Starry Night on various splash screens for many years (currently on my ighome.com feed(s) screen with van Gogh's Olive Orchard as my Win 10 screen image). Interesting to note that the MASP https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/São_Paulo_Museum_of_Art has (or has had) some paintings by van Gogh... with an exihibition scheduled for 2025 !!

    • A short piano piece based on Starry Night... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZhrJ7e8Lvk

    Moonlight Sonata: Love it... Coincidently this is possibly Beethoven's birthday month (baptised 12/17/1770)

    • Artwork sent into space... https://www.barnebys.com/blog/today-...ks-of-art-sent (Voyager plates not withstanding)

    • More music: Space Ambient Mix 21 - Planetary Suite, Silent Cosmos by Sonus Lab... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSBD...EO_rN&index=61

    I also love van Gogh! Unfortunately it wasn´t possible to browse through the museum.
    Here is a reference to Starry Night I haven´t noticed before, though I probably saw the film: https://id14withmamquevedo.wordpress...-starry-night/.

    And the picture was subjected also to this curious mathematical analysis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WufKsOhkTL8

    Enjoyed the piano piece.

    Very curious this art sent into space.

    Ah, MASP, MASP is our pride here in São Paulo. It is possible to explore a bit the permanent collection on the second floor, but I´m afraid images aren´t very HD: https://masp.org.br/acervo/explore


    -Nostalgic corner-cinema-2001 Space Odissey- Opening: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WufKsOhkTL8

    - Dvorak. Rusalka, Song to the Moon -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Km1b1yZB5rY&feature=emb_logo

    -Pluto´s planet status- Among astrologers the demotion of Pluto from planet status seems not to be unanimous. Here is a warm protest and I quite agree with it.: https://www.astrology.co.uk/news/dwarfplanets.htm

    • I also haven't seen "Midnight in Paris" yet; it's interesting they stylized their promo art with Vincent's "Starry Night". I think I've read of the Yin/yang observation. I've also added another Vincent van Gogh facebook feed to my profile that shows many interesting modifications and adaptations and observations of his artwork... https://www.facebook.com/groups/1398...58764113117040

    • Not what I expected: 2001's opening scenes are classic. I researched what I expected and found>>> https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=2473815429298315

    After watching the above I was reminded of an optical illusion I noted on facebook some months ago, and after a short search found this pleasing effect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQB46kt8FLg

    • MASP... much to explore on this website !!!

    • Ah, here is 2001 again (see above)... Great music by Strauss and great cinematic creativity in transitioning from before and after the monolith appears to the future ! (a mere 19 years ago if my math is correct... Clarke was ever the optimist).

    • "Song to the Moon"... the link above was rendered inert, but I was able to locate it: The poetic lyrics (libretto by the poet Jaroslav Kvapil) are fabulously sung by Renée Fleming. I was not familiar with "Rusalka" and will have to remedy this oversight... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rusalka_(opera)

    • I also agree that Pluto should have remained a planet in the eyes of astronomers; I have not and may never reconcile the fact - no matter how many times I hear the word Pluton or that Pluto/Charon is a binary system with eccentric tendencies. The fact that my college text on astronomy from my brief university days (circa 1972) is so outdated makes me feel preternaturally old.

    • What's up with Neptune ?... https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard...ing-a-fragment . The video is quite impressive on this page as well "The Outer Planets: Hubble’s Continuing Legacy".

    • Space junk: https://www.nhm.ac.uk/discover/what-...a-problem.html

    • ... and let us not forget: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elon_M...Tesla_Roadster

    • Short story: "The Color Out of Space" / H.P. Lovecraft... the download book icon is kind of small and the cover art looks wrong... but there it is: https://onemorelibrary.com/index.php...-of-space-2520 ... GENRE: Horror / H.P. Lovecraft

     Sorry about confusing the links, tailor ☹!
     To the Facebook link I have only a partial access, as I’m not inscribed, but it looks interesting. I love von Gogh’s strong colors.
     Interesting optical illusion moving the swirl in Starry Night.
     Another version of the “Song of the Moon” (Rusalka). I loved this interpretation by Leontine Price. The images of famous singers seems to be a bonus:
    LEONTYNE PRICE - SONG TO THE MOON, RUSALKA (MY FAVORITE OPERA SINGERS OF ALL TIME) - YouTube
     Impressive information about Neptune. With the powerful modern technology, the skies have to give up a lot of their mysteries. Now this is going to happen today: https://astronomy.com/news/2020/12/j...inter-solstice
     Incredible the human talent for producing junk. But I can´t believe: a car floating in the universe! The ETs are bound to send us packing!
     Never read Lovecraft before as I am not a fan of horror stories. But I read this story at a time and found it very well written. Reminds me a bit of Stevenson.
     An interesting festival: https://www.brooklynkids.org/black-future-festival/
     A poem (a bit long ):

    • More Details Emerge About 'Oumuamua, Earth's First-Recorded Interstellar Visitor (2017 but supposedly updated): https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/...oseup-and-name ... the focus of the parabolic path of Oumuamua appears to be between the Sun and the Earth; I'm thinking this was a botched kinetic attack.

    • Another recent visitor: C/2019 Q4... https://www.theatlantic.com/science/...muamua/598204/

    "I started a response earlier but refreshed the page by accident So here I go again..."-Oh my, I want to kill The Software when this happens...!
    -I remember Celebrating Black-American Literature... It was a handsome idea.
    - Sorry about “FILIBUSTER OR MILIEU THESIS"...I read it very superficially and thought also there was a hidden meaning in some of the word combinations...
    - Thanks for the beautiful poetry link. Particularly enjoyed:
    “On foot I had to cross the solar system
    Edith Södergran
    On foot
    I had to cross the solar system
    before I found the first thread of my red dress.
    I sense myself already.
    Somewhere in space hangs my heart,
    shaking in the void, from it stream sparks
    into other intemperate hearts. “
    Found a very scholarly copy in English of Manilius Astronomica which influenced Housman:

    -Oumuamua-Still remains a mystery it seems.
    -C/2019 Q4-Interesting news. I think it is natural that as the telescopes get more potent they get also more able to spot celestial objects from outside the solar system. Maybe there were some here before, that couldn´t be detected.
    Beastly Boys- Enjoyed that different music
    Space Facts and Discoveries-I´m going to watch them separately.

    -Space food- Some of the videos are hilarious. I specially liked the Pizza video. The Thanksgiving meal didn´t inspire me: https://www.nasa.gov/audience/foredu...on/ditl_eating
