71. Sirius and Saturn [Journals] [SIS Review]
... is symbolised by [* !* circle dot], and is called Helios'. ') ; or of the north celestial pole ( 'It is the one thing in the sky that neither moves nor sets, and as long as it does not change the cosmos remains stable. ') . What was once said of the aurora saturnalis is now said of the aurora borealis ( 'It is a feature of the World Axis. ') . The World Axis and the World Mountain were not originally in the north but have been transferred to the north, in a vain effort to make the old traditions meaningful. Even so, ancient references to the north' ...
72. Velikovsky's Sources Volume One [Books]
... violently with love, she called the star Pyroeis, indicating this fact. The fourth star is that of Venus, Lucifer by name. Some say it is Juno's. In many tales it is recorded that it is called Hesperus, too. It seems to be the largest of all stars. Some have said it represents the son of Aurora and Cephalus, who surpassed many in beauty, so that he even vied with Venus, and, as Eratosthenes says, for this reason it is called the star of Venus. It is visible both at dawn and sunset, and so properly has been called both Lucifer and Hesperus. The fifth star is Mercury's, named Stilborn. ...

74. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... 24.2 .90, pp. 53-57 Scientific American has a detailed article on various aspects of the Sun's variability and its effects on Earth. Surprise, surprise, this article is exclusively an exposition of fluctuations in the Sun's electromagnetic spectrum. New Scientist gives details of the Sun's plasma and its effects on the Earth's magnetic field, on auroras, etc. These two items add up to the fact that we do, indeed, live in an electric universe. Demise of Big Bang?source: Scientific American Jan 1990, p. 19 A basic concept in astronomy is that redshifts occur as a result of the Doppler effect, whereby the light emitted by a receding object ...
75. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... October 1991 Earth Almanac. It has been suggested that navigators should be issued solar storm warnings as well as weather ones as large solar flares, such as are experienced every 22 years during the solar cycle, can shift magnetic compasses by up to 10 degrees. Disturbances in power grids and radio broadcasts are well known during solar storms and the auroras during the spring of 1991 were so spectacular that they were seen much farther north and south than usual. Magnetism can damage your health New Scientist 27.7 .91, p. 21 Magnetic fields applied to snails were found to slow certain responses and lead to increased mortality rates. World's longest electric current New Scientist 30.3 ...
76. Geological Genesis [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... be ignored. Planets have a magnetic field and a magnetosphere extending millions of miles into space. Interactions take place between these and the solar winds. In the case of the Earth at present, due to rotation, such interactions take the form of a dynamo effect which powers an electrical discharge process around the Earth, as evidenced by the Aurora. Only a small variation in cosmic flux or sunspot activity leads to a large disturbance in the lower atmosphere via such electric fields. Around Saturn, hydrogen extending outside the ring system glows faintly as excited by electromagnetic radiation from the Sun. - The rings themselves lie in an area of low density plasma and are now thought to be ...

... Earth's magnetic field as a guide have crystals of magnetite in their bodies. Now these crystals have been found in human brains, giving credence to claims that electromagnetic fields can affect human health. The Sun and the ozone hole New Scientist, 12.6 .93, p. 5 Bursts of solar energy such as those which cause the Auroras may also damage the ozone layer. Magnetospheres New Scientist, 26.6 .93, p. 14 and 24.7 .93, p. 16 The heliopause, the boundary where the solar wind meets the interstellar medium, has at last been recorded by the Voyager 1 and 2 space probes in the form of radio waves ...
78. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... are summarised in this article. Among the surprises was the fact that winds in the lower atmosphere at almost all latitudes super-rotate, exceeding the rotational speed of the ground below. On Earth this happens only at higher latitudes and on Venus, with its extremely slow speed of rotation, it was assumed that all winds would be sluggish. Patchy auroras have been detected on the shadowed surface and, although the planet has virtually no magnetic field to divert the charged particles of the solar wind, this plasma is being diverted around the planet, probably due to the ionosphere acting like a magnetic field. Ionised oxygen atoms in these highest layers are gradually being removed by the solar wind. ...
79. A New Theory of Celtic Festivals [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... from the assumed original habitat of people who spoke the Indo-European languages, that is, the Eurasian plain from the Danube to the Volga. These features are worship of light and worship of fire. '  The whole idea of refulgence as a source of joy would be foreign to India. One would naturally associate it with the aurora borealis. Perhaps such an association of ideas made a great and very conservative Hindu scholar put forward the theory that the Rig-Vedic Aryans had come from the Arctic region, which was absurd. '  The great and very conservative Hindu scholar' is evidently Bal Gangadhar Tilak (1856-1920), who published his absurd' theory in ...

The Kobe quake Science Frontiers No. 99, May-June 95, pp. 3-4 and No. 100, July-Aug. 95, pp. 3-4 and National Geographic July 1995, p. 134 The 1995 earthquake at Kobe in Japan yielded a wealth of associated phenomena. Aurora like lights were seen before and after the quake and blue or orange flashes were seen just above the quaking ground. There were many reports of strange behaviour in animals just before the quake and geomagnetic perturbations were recorded, with sudden direction changes.
