121. The Saturn Problem [Journals] [SIS Review]
... as a sun-like object of dazzling splendour. Saturn's importance to the ancients forms the centrepiece of one of the most baffling mysteries of ancient astronomy, history and religion. Within the pantheons or families of deities worshipped by our ancestors, the gods and goddesses of the planets often held the highest positions, ranking even above those of the Sun, Moon and Earth. Why? The situation is certainly contrary to what one might expect: the Sun is, after all, the most conspicuous object in the heavens and its role as the giver of light, heat, and life itself is only too obvious. To assume that even prehistoric people did not appreciate the vital importance of the ...
122. Hoerbiger's Theory [Books]
... followed in those books I propose now to apply also to the Creation, Deluge, and contained in the Book of Genesis. For the convenience of readers who have not yet become familiar with the tenets of Hoerbiger's teachings regarding the satellites of our Earth I will shortly recapitulate the main points before I continue. According to Hoerbiger, our present Moon was formerly, probably not so very long ago, geologically speaking an independent planet which wended its way between the orbits of our Earth and that of Mars. Eventually it was captured' by the Earth. This was due to the following cause. Our Sun continuously exhales sub-atomary, atomary, and molecular matter. Because of this solifugal ...
123. Those Square Craters on The Moon [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home | Issue Contents Those Square Craters on The Moon members.home.net/bill2space/square-craters.html NASA print from Lunar Orbiter data. Designated IV-190H3 In August, 1966, NASA launched the first of five Lunar Orbiter spacecraft. Their mission: Map the Moon photographically, with particular emphasis on the Lunar equatorial belt where the Apollo landings were about to occur. All five spacecraft performed flawlessly, returning data which resulted in over three thousand 20 by 24 inch photos depicting all of the Moon's near side and 99% of the far side. In 1970 a selected compilation of these photographs was published by ...
124. The Gravitational-Electromagnetic Effects of Ultramassive Objects on the Solar System [Journals] [Kronos]
... or near our solar system. We will also describe the possible effects that an interaction of this type may have upon a planet, or upon the solar system as a whole, depending on the trajectory of the object in question. THE POSSIBILITY OF PLANETARY ENCOUNTERS WITH ULTRAMASSIVE OBJECTS The physics and mathematics of objects that produce impact craters on the Moon, Earth and inner planets are thought to be fairly well understood by astronomers.(4a) These objects are debris, asteroids, and comets travelling in highly eccentric orbits. Utilizing simple collision physics, the mean free times between collisions can be calculated. This theory supposedly accounts for the number of craters on the Moon, Mercury, ...

126. Shamash and Sin [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , caught my attention, not least because my name popped up in the short discussion. Whoever is responsible for the item is correct in maintaining that the symbol was used by a wide variety of people way before the foundation of Islam' and is usually interpreted as representing Ishtar and Sin', who are normally identified as Venus and the Moon'. In parenthesis it is then added that: "Dwardu Cardona has pointed out that a common entry in Babylonian astrological reports was when Shamash stands in the halo of Sin' but for Cardona, Shamash is Saturn." It is then asked, Is Sin even the Moon? '. An astute question - but first, ...
127. Velikovsky, Mars, and the Eighth Century B.C. Part Two [Journals] [Kronos]
... in various parts of the Chinese Empire between the ninth and fifth centuries B.C . It is considered one of the canonical classics of Chinese literature. The year of the eclipse is not indicated in the poem, nor even the name of the sovereign then reigning. The opening lines read: At the conjunction [of the Sun and Moon] in the tenth month, On the first day of the moon, which was sin-maou, The sun was eclipsed A thing of very evil omen.(3 ) Chinese months were lunar, reckoned from conjunction- the only time when a solar eclipse is possible. The word for eclipse is shih ( ), literally, " ...
128. The Year Of 360 Days, Part 2 Mars Ch.8 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... striking that the Ve das nowhere mention an intercalary period, and while repeatedly stating that the year consists of 360 days, nowhere refer to the five or six days that actually are a part of the solar year."3 This Hindu year of 360 days is divided into twelve months of thirty days each.4 The texts describe the moon as crescent for fifteen days and waning for another fifteen days; they also say that the sun moved for six months or 180 days to the north and for the same number of days to the south. The perplexity of scholars at such data in the Brahmanic literature is expressed in the following sentence: "That these are not conventional ...

... some 18 miles south-west of Gibeon. A devastating shower of stones begins while the enemy troops are descending the pass and continues as far as Azekah, a distance of some 15 miles. Then we have verses 12-13 (RSV): "Then spake Joshua to the LORD... Sun, stand thou still at Gibeon, and thou Moon in the valley of Aijalon. ' And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the nation took vengeance on their enemies. "Is not this written in the Book of Jashar? The sun stayed in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day." Seas of ...
130. The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part I) [Journals] [Kronos]
... held back by solar wind pressure near the orbit of Jupiter(4 ) - which is one source of comet tail matter - and 3) a postulated electric dipole red-shift in photons leaving the central star. Still another theoretical result was the possibility of an electrically induced magnetic dynamo powered by a planet spinning inside the orbit of a slightly charged moon. Empirical correlation between moons and magnetic fields has been known for some time,(5 ) though the wandering of our Moon has remained an unsolved mystery.(6 , 7) An attempt is made to explain solar system formation from the time a newly formed twin star system leaves the galactic center(1 ) to when it ...
