"The scale of some of these events organized close to major showers supports the idea the Maya were able to calculate the length of the sidereal year, and in all probability kept track of and observed Eta Aquariid meteor showers and outbursts," says Kinsman.
If we express the Earth surface gravity acceleration g = 9.8 [ms.sup.-2] in terms of the speed of light, we receive an oscillation period of c/g = 355 sidereal days that is in the range of the Earth orbital period and coincides perfectly with the attractor node [63; 2] of the F (1) calibrated on the electron oscillation period 2nTelectron = 8.0933 x [10.sup.-21] s:
This book is a history of the five-year period from the Dutch invention of the telescope, through the publication of The Sidereal Messenger, to the initial reactions to Galileo's discoveries, until about 1612.

Upon the publication of The Sidereal Messenger in 1610, Galileo was accused of heresy.
Daniels used to say to people: "When you are on your package tour to Mars you need a watch like this, and when using the telephone for long distance calls, you could switch the chronograph into sidereal time to cut your bills by 3.555 minutes per day!" It was named to commemorate the first Moon landing in 1969.
where the amplitude of each sidereal harmonic is a function of the coefficients for Lorentz violation and experimental parameters including neutrino energy, location of the experiment, and relative orientation between source and detector [33, 34].
He used to say to people: "When you are on your package tour to Mars you need a watch like this, and when using the telephone for long distance calls you could switch the chronograph into sidereal time to cut your bills by 3.555 minutes per day!".
The pattern repeats every 243 years because 243 sidereal orbital periods of the Earth (365.25636 days slightly longer than the tropical year) is 88757.3 days, and 395 sidereal orbital periods of Venus (224.701 days) is 88756.9 days.
Yea, and this aquaterrestrial globe and these sidereal heavens are the divine flounces of the Vesture of Allah."
For a better separation of the earthquake-induced station motion from the noise, a modified sidereal filter and a regional filter are implemented.
The Herschel catalogues are not only the legacy of the greatest single stride ever taken into the sidereal depths but they are still, 200 years on, extremely useful to the visual deepsky observer.
