Good News (IV)

(Si queréis traducción hacérmelo saber | se volete traduzione fatemilo sapere).

This is going to be a ‘live’ post, so keep an eye on the updates.

In the event that you are here in Oviedo, Asturias, Spain, open a window wherever you are and look how it is already day, despite the timetable for orto in the Astronomical link for today is 8:40 a.m. (UTC+1).

Horario Astronómico 2015

I’ll go on explaining the 15 hour days, and the 9 days months I calculated from my observations made at home (most of them) throughout various months all along the time I noticed there was something unusual happening, last year (2014) in December the 23rd.

First the numbers:

Having on account that a year has 12 months, multiplying 12 for 9 (which is the time I concluded a distorted month is having in duration) yields 108 days for a year (a distorted one).

I came to this conclusion because of three important FACTS:

One -> AVERAGE TEMPERATURES. The average temperature is a value calculated from the measurements made al along a period of time, making… say 10 measurements in equally spaced lapses of time all along the portion of a study summing the values and dividing by the quantity of measurements made (10, in the example), results in the average temperature value. So, it is not a peak for one particular moment in time when the weather is highest, or lowest, or whatever, but a mean of all measured values.

In the case of meteorology those average temperature measurements are being calculated with a much larger amount of occurrencies, because they are made at various locations, and throughout a time lapse of TEN YEARS, 10 years is quite a long time in order to avoid peaking distortions. So, I think it is much more than a reliable source to make calculi on.

Two -> The high and low TIDES (and also the big appearance of the Moon, sometimes, when it is visible and appears too big, as far as I know, though, as I told you, I am not an astrophysicist, and I know only some basics about this, being those, that its apparent size change is due to refraction and other optical effects (reflection, difraction…).

The tides follow a regular path all along the year, because they are related to gravitational interactions related to rotation, translation, and the Moon-Earth interaction, so, for instance, here in Asturias, in September, is one of the moments in a year when the tides go highest and lowest, usually.

Three -> The positions for shadows during daylight period, and the position of constellations during the night, which don’t appear as they should be appearing (throughout my observations I learned to recognize in the night-sky also, Leo Major, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, Taurus (with Pleiades stars complex, which are easilly recognizable because of their positions and brightness in the sky), Bootes (with Arcturus), and some others, in addition to Ursa Major, Ursa Minor (with Polaris), Orion, who serves well to find the true North (with Betelgeuse, Bellatrix, and Rigel), and Casiopea, which are old ‘acquaintances’ of mine.

Despite the fact of not being an astronomer, nigh-light pollution at cities, buildings or trees blocking the field of view, or cloudy, or Full Moon nights, and making some mistakes (in fact, I can see one of the Ursae from my window at night when visibility conditions are good, but, although I can see a bright star where Polaris should be, I could not see the rest of the Ursa Minor constellation from my window, at different times in the night, nor at different times through the year. I saw them, the two Ursae, more or less at 20:00h from some street outside, but most of the time, the view of the two constellations simultaneously, seem to be hiding from my sight… 🙂 , so I still am in doubt if it is Cepheus, or Ursa Minor who is pointing the true North (= that which is different from magnetic North, which is what a compass points to) at night from my window), because in some northern tropical latitudes (those between the equator and North Tropic), they cannot see Ursa Minor and have to guide themselves with Cepheus instead (but this latter option would imply an argument displacement of 20º in an arc (Asturias is 43º North, and Northern Tropic is 23º North), so I think it is more likely due to magnetic distortion and its interaction with light refraction in the atmosphere).

I can recognize many constellations, when visibility and field of view are available, and I noticed there is a shift between mezzogiorno’s shadows, and Polaris at night.

So, I started writing down some events, every so often, with a degree of accuracy error not very big, but instead of going on explaining things I think I already explained in some other posts, I’ll go on with the numbers.

And for that I’ll put here an image I cropped from this webpage.

Otoño 2015

Otoño 2015

Otoño 2015

According to this info from the official webpage of the Spanish Ministry of “Fomento” … instituto_geografico/astronomia … a lot of things…

2015 Autumn should have started in September the 23rd at 10:21 a.m. Spanish time (UTC + 2, summer saving time [08:21 UTC]), and should have a duration of 89 days and 20 hours, so Winter 2015 starts in Winter solstice, adding the days and hours, gives a value for a date, this date: 2015 December the 22nd at 06:21 a.m. (unfortunately there was no info available from the official webpage, so I made the addition of the 89 days and 20 hours autumn should have lasted (check yourselves in the event that I made some miscalculation, although I think I have not).

So, Autumn should have arrived here this year, 2015.

Horario Astronómico 02

Horario Astronómico 02

I noted on a piece of paper the dates for some events when I started to think about all this topic, and I wrote the following (all times below follow Spanish time reference):

11 December (for 2015)                  –                                7 January

08:45 a.m. <-> 17:47 p.m.                                        08:56 a.m.<->  18:04 p.m.

17 March                                            –                               18 March

07:33 a.m. <-> 19:32 p.m.                                        07:31 a.m. <-> 19:33 p.m.

18, 22, 25 June                                 –                                01 July

06:44 a.m. <-> 22:07 p.m.                                      06:44 a.m. <-> 22:07 p.m.

25, 26 September                            –                                 (I put nothing here)

08:13 a.m. <-> 20:16 p.m. (for the 25th) and

08:15 a.m. <-> 20:14 p.m. (for the 26th).

But, in September the 24th I noticed the timetable in the webpage had changed and I wrote this post about it, from which I put this image here.

undeterminate equinox 15/16 september

undeterminate equinox 15/16 september

 “El día anterior 15 de Septiembre (más o menos a la misma hora) era un rectángulo perfecto, pero en ese momento no hice ningún recorte. La rectitud y posición de esa línea entre día y noche SÓLO se produce en LOS EQUINOCCIOS (primavera, y otoño).”

‘The previous day, 15 of September (more or less at the same (Spanish) hour it was a perfect rectangle, but in that moment I din’t do any crop. The straightness and position of that line between day and night ONLY occurs during the EQUINOXES (Spring, and Autumn).’

The change in the webpage’s timetable, I think (being a positive thinker) might have happened because of automated self-triggered executable programs, which might have updated the timetable, changing the values themselves. Anyhow, there was a shift then of two minutes (in the sunrise), and one minute (inthe sunset) for the first of July, among the values that I had wrote down carefully and previously in the piece of paper, and I have written above.

So, in order to end this post, I’ll finish explaining the numbers I gave, leaving the post and email address open to comments on this topic, which will end this ‘Good News’ series.

A distorted year has 108 usual-to-everyone days. This means dividing by four, each 27 days there is a season change. And also that each 54 days there is an opposed position in distorted year path, you take a solstice, 54 days afterwards you have its counterpart (which can be done for any hour (rotation) in any date, being the difference a ‘slight’ one in the elliptical trajectory of the Earth around the Sun).

Remember a distorted year is a direct consequence of magnetism overdriven by big power (lots of MEGAwatts and higher) electricity generation facilities, and electricity transport through ANY MEDIA (gas, solid, or liquid), being different from the usual-year which has 365 days and six hours (on average).

[I am fed up of all of you, whoever all of you are, entering (hacking) in my webpage (and other virtual spaces of mine) and changing the texts, drawings, images, calculi, and numbers (which are difficult enough themselves as to add more difficulties which make me go much more slower than I would if you, or the police, whom I informed and reported throughout the latest years since I noticed, stopped it) I spend my time making, for the advancement of science all over the world, being then the results of my work changed, for the disappointment of everyone who spend their time reading my posts, which consequently, result in other words, numbers, and calculi, besides containing much more mispellings or errors than those, they should do: those I do. Because they also contain those all of you add].

Sorry, to everyone (but them), who have to bear consequently, the inconveniences derived from the ‘work’ of those hackers, who spend their time, bothering people around the world, one of whom bothered people is me, and from years ago. So, PEER-CHECK, yourselves.

In what respects the calculon for the 15 hours in a day, it is because every 15 hours stars seem to render the same positions when 24, and 15 hours distances in time are falling in near places and have a position with visibility into night hours.

So, if you look up into the night-sky at one a.m. o’clock , and look the next day at seven a.m. o clock, and both hours fall into night hours, you will see stars occupy very near positions, and this is because 15 x 2 = 30, and 30 – 24 = 6 hours (thus 90 arc degrees of argument shift), that is the time passed between one o’clock and seven o’clock, but this late point you must CHECK YOURSELVES, when visibility conditions are good (of course you can control any other hour to compare, as long as both times fall into night hours).

However, this 24/30 difference can be adjusted so that every five days of 24 hours gives a value of 120 hours, which is the same than every eight days of 15 hours, being,

5 x 24 = 8 x 15 = 120 hours.

Besides all these, there is the AVERAGE TEMPERATURE and weather conditions.

Here, in Asturias (and not only here), that is where I live, this year (2015) there has been a cold wave which started in February the 5th (the eighth for the rest of Europe).

And there was also a strong sleet fall in June 13th.

So, 28 – 8 = 20 days in February + 31 days (March) + 3 days = 54 days falling the

days addition in -> April the third.

April the 3rd + 27 = 27 days to the 30th.

  • 31 for May = 58 days – 4 days = 54 days -> 27th of May.

27th + 4 days = 31 May + 30 days June = 30th June

30th June – 17 days -> June the 13th the date for the heavy sleet fall.

4 days + 30 days + 20 days = 54 -> July the 20th

But that’s not all, there was a lot of cold here this summer (2015).

30 julio 2015 15:32

El tercio norte y este peninsular registrará tormentas fuertes, que podrían ir acompañadas de viento y granizo, desde esta noche y durante la jornada del viernes, que en Asturias se traducirán en precipitaciones que se incrementaqrán durante esta tarde, según la predicción de la Agencia Estatal de Meteorología (AEMET).

(Consider the opposite conditions in southern hemisphere, thus having hot winter weather).

So, the weather and climate are not what they used to be not so long ago.

And I’ll tell you the latest, because, it is difficult to calculate on these events, and the post is getting to two thousand five hundred words quickly.

In October the 30th, I checked, both apparent (distorted), true, and mean (sunrises, mid-days, and sunsets) timetables complied, then I published this post where you can see on each image in its caption the date and time in the rightmost part of the yyyymmdd_hhmmss (must subtract one minute to the mm figure because I set the hour afterwards, so now my photographs are only a few seconds in delay respect to Spanish official time, but then they were one minute in advance).

(Spanish time = UTC + 1)

The sunrise was at 07:39 a.m. , adding the 16 minutes difference of the Lemniscata anticipation time shift [See note 1] for that date, sums 07:55 a.m. which is the time for sunrise (they put ORT, for ORTO, might have been short of resources as to save a caret space for the ‘O’… 🙂 ).

NOTE 1: The Lemniscata’s shift is to be subtracted when the date falls left of the vertical axis (negative values), and added when it falls right of the vertical axis, regardless of longitude, because it has to do with translation, and not with rotation. For the longitude, if yours is more on the East of your time meridiane reference, you must calculate one arc degree (one degree of difference in longitude) is four clock minutes in advance, so for each degree more on the East you must add four minutes for time, and have also on account that 3.5 hours, for instance, is not 03:05, but 03:30 hours, because one hour is 60 clock minutes, thus being 3.5 equal to

(3 x 60) + (1/2) 60 = 210 clock minutes, and that’s three hours and a half.

(This is why here in Spain, Catalonia and Galicia have half an hour (more or less) of difference for their respective ortos, and sunsets, and this is why Canary Islands have one hour in difference with Spanish peninsular time, having that way… sort of a Canary Islands Meridiane Time, which, as far as I know, does not exist (but I wouldn’t be much surprised if it did though 🙂 ), but coincide with the UTC, with zero shift, in terms of timetable, but not in Longitude, which is more or less the same as Iceland’s [~=-17º degrees West], having a true time shift of one hour and eight minutes with Greenwhich Meridiane Time, such as Iceland does]).

Today sunrise (ORT ‘O’) was at 08:09 a.m., this is a shift of 31 minutes in advance from what it should have been, and another 8 minutes less for the Lemniscata, so there has been a variation of 39 in advance for the timetable HERE in Oviedo (by the Astronomical National Observatory, so they have on account (at least the -5º 50′ -> almost 6º of difference in Longitude with 0º Greenwich Meridiane, which passes also upon Spain at Castellón, so they added already the almost 6º x 4 clock minutes = almost 24 clock minutes of difference, and the only thing to correct [if any] would be the Lemniscata’s clock minutes shift).

Besides, from November the 23-25, I have noticed daylight hours have increased, so, now it is easier to calculate the time shift (which I’ll do and comment in ‘Time Shift’ forthcoming series of posts, and I hope you will also calculate yourselves).

So, 12 months x 9 (usual) days = 108 days for a distorted year.

Dividing by the 30 days in a (usual) month 108 / 30 = 3 , 6 (usual-months)

Multiplying by 5 renders 18 (usual-months), that’s a year and a half of the usual kind (365 days and 6 hours), but that’s FIVE DISTORTED (magnetic overdriven) YEARS.

And this is what is happening, so, bearing in mind there are 16 days and some hours left for Winter solstice, you will notice soon (if you haven’t yet) days are already increasing.

Happy Christmas!
