COSMOS:

cosmos-original.jpgThe original COSMOS series was a watershed for storytelling, making science personal.  With enthusiasm Carl Sagan presented a convincing argument that we are the stuff of generic viagra lowest prices stars.  He ingenuously conveyed how seemingly unfathomable some really large numbers are.  (That numerical awe held sway with me until national debt perveyors co-opted the domain of astronomers.)   The language of Sagan and the imagery of artists like Adolf Schaller were exquisite. 

Bold ideas took root with staying power, and have held sway for decades.  For example, in the summer of 2013, community volunteers painted the 933 Bridge, a gateway into South Bend, IN.  Among the aritists was high school student Jacob DeHart, who shared a pastel he had recently done. When selecting a subject to paint, DeHart chose to overnight levitra honor Carl Sagan for his influential work years before. 

For recent dialogue about the amazing original series, Casey Dreier of The Planetary Society reflects on those original 13 episodes with Cosmos with Cosmos

Observing with Telescopes:

That evening, the waxing gibbous moon is a convenient guide.  High in the western sky, the moon's brilliance washes out nearby stars, but a singular bright object to generic viagra lowest price its left shines through.

The dominant bright object is Jupiter, embedded in the constellation of the Gemini twins.  Take a look through a telescope to see four dots in line with Jupiter--a striking appearance first seen by Galileo over 400 years ago!  What are you witnessing?

Try this thought experiment (or do it at home with your own binoculars or telescope):

Let's say on the first night you see four stars in a row astride Jupiter.  On successive nights you see four in row, but in a different order relative to the planet.  For example, maybe you see two dots on bayer levitra one side and two on the other side.  Another night you see three on one side and one on the other side.  Jupiter-March9.pngThen back to two and two.  Then maybe one night you see two dots on one side of Jupiter, one dot on the other side, and the fourth dot is missing. Where is it?

Most people realize the missing fourth moon is either behind or in front of cialis alternatives Jupiter, which implies the four moons are orbiting (or revolving around) the giant planet.  If it's true that four objects go around Jupiter, as Galileo asserted, then it means not everything in the heavens go around earth.  Jupiter is the center of four things, whatever they are.  House arrest for you!fiddler-scopes.JPG
