Merry Christmas!! and Happy New Year!!

Posted: December 21, 2006 in Uncategorized

The third issue will come out very soon in a very different look. It will include some out of astronomy topics as Christmas and New Year special.
I’d like to thank Colin Henshaw for his another article related to astrophysics.
The nights are longer these days (with winter solstice a few hours away from now, while I am typing this). Longer nights mean longer time for observation but the cold is at its peak and we have foggy mornings here. Last night, when I woke up to go to the bathroom, I saw a meteor streak past the sky. In fact, I have seen many meteors in the last few days. I think they belong to the Ursids.
About the Geminids, I didn’t actually go out to see it because I was very busy with one of my cousin sisters’ marriage ceremony and many other wedding parties. In one of the parties, at about 6 in the evening, many of us saw a big fiery dot passing slowy above us. I told people it could be the ISS but I am still not sure because I have not checked any software. What I know for sure is that it was really bright!!! lol 😉 There were just a few stars seen at that time with all the lights in the party.
I hope everybody will have a great time this christmas, and new year…
Merry Christmas!! and Happy New Year!!

    Because of the Taiwan earthquake, internet service has become very slow in parts of asia including nepal. The undersea cables were damaged.
    This has delayed the publication of the third issue. The issue will be out within a few days.
