John Lee Comstock - Phases of Venus, “A System of Natural Philosophy”, 1848.
The Phases of Venus result from the planet’s orbit around the Sun inside the Earth’s orbit giving the telescopic observer a sequence of progressive lighting similar in appearance to the Moon’s phases. It presents a full image when it is on the opposite side of the Sun. It shows a quarter phase when it is at its maximum elongation from the Sun. Venus presents a thin crescent in telescopic views as it comes around to the near side between the Earth and the Sun and presents its new phase when it is between the Earth and the Sun. Since the planet has an atmosphere it can be seen at new in a telescope by the halo of light refracted around the Planet. The full cycle from new to full to new again takes 584 days (the time it takes Venus to overtake the Earth in its orbit). The Planet also changes in apparent size from 9.9 arc seconds at full (superior conjunction) up to a maximum of 68 arc seconds at new (inferior conjunction). Venus reaches its greatest brilliancy (magnitude) -4.5 when it is an intermediate crescent shape at the point in its orbit when it is 68 million kilometers away from the Earth (a combination of its closeness and the fact that it is 28% illuminated).
Hope everyone is having a good week! Find the time to sit calmly and not worry about the future and the past. Today is the gift we have to share, laugh, and love life and the people we share it with. It’s why it is called the present. 🎁

“The Adam Kadmon template already exists in the DNA but has been lying dormant in what has been termed “junk DNA” by scientists. Currently humans have two strands of DNA active which give us the hologram of a dense body. When the other ten-plus strands are filled with light, the activation will create a body hologram.” | RiseEarth
