🍂2/? -and this represents the light and darkness in our lives. The long summer nights have passed and we are now in a season of transition.

🏛What does this have to do with the Pantheon? It’s built according to helioarchitecture; architecture following the sun or its placements

Today is the Spring or Vernal #Equinox, a day of equal night and day. To celebrate, a tour was due to take place @NMIreland Archaeology. So here instead, is a #TwitterTour by Archaeology Museum Educator, @trisha_ryan, of some facts from the tour #histedchatie #MuseumFromHome
There are many archaeological monuments and artefacts that are connected to solar or celestial symbols, including the Equinox. For thousands of years, people looked to the skies and their environment to help explain the world.
People expressed this in the monuments they built such as passage tombs and stone circles. The passage tomb of #Knowth has 2 tombs, both at due east and west, and is thought to be aligned to the rising and setting sun of the Equinoxes. Images from @newgrangeknowth

The word #equinox comes from the Latin ‘aequi’ meaning equal and ‘nox’ meaning night. This is the magic time of fall harvests and harvest moons, but for us up here on the Alaskan riviera, this time for peak viewing of the aurora borealis, or northern lights..
As many of you know, I’ve had a fraught relationship with these celestial fireworks; trying to capture a bit of their astral majesty with my earthbound and unworthy hands in sculpture form... Image

I love Astronomy!!!
I was even on the core team during the repair the Hubble Telescope while the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS) which was installed during Servicing Mission 4 (STS-125) in May 2009.
Astronomy (from Greek: ἀστρονομία) is a natural science that studies celestial objects & phenomena. It applies mathematics, physics, & chemistry, in an effort to explain the origin of those objects & phenomena & their evolution. I love looking at the stars.
Objects of interest include planets, moons, stars, galaxies, & comets; the phenomena include supernova explosions, gamma ray bursts, & cosmic microwave background radiation. More generally, all phenomena that originate outside Earth's atmosphere are w/in the purview of astronomy.
