31. The Cloud of Jehovah [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... One form occurring in nature is the faint glow known as St. Elmo's fire, seen at the top of ships' masts at night when thunderclouds are near; other natural forms are seen from sharp Alpine peaks and even the heads of human beings. The edges of aircraft wings sometimes glow when flying through thunderclouds. Another manifestation is the Aurora Borealis, the so-called Northern Lights.(1 ) Because the rounded head of the ship's mast wore the light of St. Elmo's fire like a crown or halo, it was later called corona (the Latin word for "crown"). As sources of high-voltage electricity were developed many years later, the same light-like phenomena were ...

... and crop prices in medieval England. It seems that solar minima do, in fact, make for a cooler climate and a drop in wheat yields. Saturn's X-Ray Mystery (New Scientist 30.3 .04. p. 19) X-ray images of Jupiter show bright x-rays coming from the poles, explicable by the process which creates its auroras. Saturn, however, has now revealed its x-ray output as mainly concentrated around the equator, although it too has polar auroras. This pattern is very similar to that of x-rays from the Sun. Another surprise (! ) is that Saturn's ring system does not reflect x-rays at all. It seems that Jupiter and Saturn are very ...
33. Discussion [Journals] [Aeon]
... and Windsor do not find it difficult to reconcile contributions from Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn in their scenario.(13) In addition, or alternatively, Milton Zysman's scenario(14) should be considered as a means of accounting for the appearance of Hermes/Mercury during Iliad times. Zysman has presented compelling evidence to show that polar auroras were a much more visible phenomenon during the times when Earth possessed a much stronger magnetic field- a feature, once again, of the Patten-Windsor scenario.(15) In Defence of Mars Maybe the significant "flux tube" of electrons flowing between Jupiter and Io might seem more appropriate evidence for the comparatively more stable or, rather ...
34. The Original Star of Dawn [Articles]
... , we come across further evidence of this concept in Slavonic mythology which speaks of two dawns. Thus it is said that: "_ the Sun lived _ in a land of eternal summer and abundance _ He lived in a kingdom of light and sat on a throne of gold and purple. At his side stood two beautiful virgins, Aurora of the Morning and Aurora of the Evening _" The land of "eternal summer and abundance" is a recognizable reference to Saturn's Golden Age, and the "Sun" spoken of here must perforce have been the Saturnian sun of yore. Aurora, of course, is the Latin name of the goddess of dawn. In Slavonic ...
35. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Plasma from Archaic Z-Pinch Recordings. Preview Abstract. Authors: A. L. Peratt, M. A. van der Sluijs, D. A. Scott. Many dozens of categories of instabilities associated with sub-gigaampere Z-pinches from digitally logged archaic petroglyphs have been identified (A . L. Peratt, Characteristics for the occurrence of a high-current Z-pinch aurora as recorded in antiquity', Trans. Plasma Sci. Vol. 31, N. 6, 2003.) as might occur in an intense aurora (T . Gold, Large solar outburst in the past, ' Pontificiae Academiae Scientiarvm Scripta Varia, Vol. 25, pp. 159-174, The Vatican, 1962.) or ...

... the direct rays of the summer sun', disappearing completely in and around midsummer.  In mythological terms the gods Tammuz, Osiris, and Corey were in the underworld, imprisoned, buried, or sojourning. '  The god was then resurrected, or found, when, around what is now September, the aurora would begin to re-emerge until it shone at its brightest in and around midwinter.  With the aurora, of course, came the reflected sunlit Earth. True enough, some of these festivals of light fall in and around midwinter and midsummer but many others do not. In fact, a cursory examination of these festivals shows ...
37. The Origin and Decay of the Earth's Geomagnetic Field [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... unaware of the data that existed between 1835 and 1915. The Three Flux Tubes Io creates a massive amount of friction in Jupiter's atmosphere and ocean. In 1977 Voyager photographed a phenomenon which astonished the scientific world. Flowing in a closed loop, across 250,000 miles of space (and space is a very poor conductor) was an aurora of electricity, constantly flowing. Estimates of its voltage, amperage, and wattage were made: they were voltage at 400,000 volts, amperage at 5 million amps, and wattage at 2 quadrillion watts. [7 ] This is about 70 times the generating capacity of all man-made generators on the Earth combined. The discharges of ...
... and the third is the "Woman of the West," the evening star. The stars generally they believe to be the spirits of the dead, and the rainbow is a beautiful spirit who accompanies the sun. The thunder is the "Lord of Life" when he speaks in his anger. Many affirm that the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) is the "Dance of the Dead," in which only the spirits of great warriors and mighty medicine men can participate. The Chippeways are said to call this phenomenon " the Dancing Spirit." The " Milky Way" was called the "Path of Souls" leading to the spirit land. (Travels in North ...
39. Legends based on meteorites [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1996:2 (Feb 1997) Home | Issue Contents Newsgroup: alt.mythology Subject: Re: Legends based on meteorites From: Mark Isaak, firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Sat, 3 Feb 1996 15:50:47 GMT Pretending that Joshua 10 refers to meteors is one of Velikovsky's inventions. Everyone I know who knows Hebrew agrees that "barad" means hailstone. Furthermore, no one has found a field strewn with many meteorites anywhere in the Middle East. For meteorites in mythology, the best source of information is: Newton, Hubert A., 1897. The worship of meteorites. American Journal of Science 3 ...
40. Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning [Books]
... heaven has elapsed and who are then re-descending to the earth. Cicero, in De Natura Deorum, asserted that the constellations were looked upon as divine; and Statius, that the sea nymphs were the constellations of the sea, the divine inhabitants of the waters, as the others were of the heavens. Yet this same author elsewhere represented Aurora as driving the stars out of heaven with a scourge like so many beasts; and Manilius called them a flock going on like sheep; while Shelley, in his Prometheus Unbound, writing of the astronomer's work, said: Heaven's utmost deep Gives up her stars, and like a flock of sheep They pass before his eye, are ...
