These images were taken with the Hubble Space Telescope from the year 1996 (bottom left) to 2000 (top right). Notice how thin the rings are! They are 300,000 km across, and only a kilometer thick at most. They are made up of chunks of ice, most of which are about the size of softballs, though there are larger bodies, some a few kilometers across, and smaller pieces, all the way down to very fine dust. Each ring particle orbits Saturn like a tiny moon.

    Esoteric Astrology:
    Planets in general
    Steve Kalinowski
    Permission granted for publication on Boudicca's Bard
    In astrology, the planets are the significators of the most importance in the chart. The ancients (excluding the Sumerians because their awareness of celestial bodies that could not be `seen' is an entirely different topic of its own) knew of only the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. These are the ones visible to the eye unaided by technology.
    These planets, or literally translated the wanderers were thought to be the embodiment of ethereal/divine energies. Their action in the heavens were seen to portend the actions of the earthly world... and, as the Hermetic Law stated; As above, so below.
    The esoteric understanding of the planets serves two purposes, first, by describing the characteristic energies, or power tools, found within the personality; and second, by describing a system of initiation and rite of passage in spiritual ascension.
    As a description of personality the planets are viewed as one factor in a threefold system of correlation, the other two being the signs and the houses. These three, together, make up an alphabet system of sorts to describe characteristic energies by their various combinations and interrelations.

    EXTRASOLAR planets general OVERVIEW. 1. Extrasolar planets. http// extrasol.html
    An Overview of the Solar System
    T he solar system consists of the Sun ; the nine planets, over 100 satellites of the planets, a large number of small bodies (the comets and asteroids), and the interplanetary medium. (There are also many more planetary satellites that have been discovered but not yet been officially named.) The inner solar system contains the Sun, Mercury Venus Earth and Mars T he planets of the outer solar system are Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune and Pluto T he orbits of the planets are ellipses with the Sun at one focus, though all except Mercury and Pluto are very nearly circular. The orbits of the planets are all more or less in the same plane (called the ecliptic and defined by the plane of the Earth's orbit) . The ecliptic is inclined only 7 degrees from the plane of the Sun's equator. Pluto's orbit deviates the most from the plane of the ecliptic with an inclination of 17 degrees. The above diagrams show the relative sizes of the orbits of the nine planets from a perspective somewhat above the ecliptic (hence their non-circular appearance). They all orbit in the same direction (counter-clockwise looking down from above the Sun's north pole); all but Venus, Uranus and Pluto also rotate in that same sense. (The above diagrams show correct positions for October 1996 as generated by the excellent Macintosh program Starry Night ; there are also many other planetarium programs available.)

No special expertise or knowledge is needed; all technical and astronomical terms and proper names are defined in the glossary . The bulk of this material should be familiar to planetary scientists and astronomers but they may find a few interesting tidbits, too. T his document consists of about 100 WWW "pages", one page for each major body in the Solar System. Each page has:
    • a large picture of its object and usually several smaller thumbnail images (all linked to their full-size originals)
    • some scientific and historical facts about it,
    • if the object has satellites then its page has a table of data on them and links to their pages,
    • links to more images and information about the object elsewhere on the Web, and
    • a list of open issues for which we as yet have no answers.

    15. On A General Method Of Expressing The Paths Of Light, And Of The Planets, By The
    An original paper by William Rowan Hamilton, dated 1833.
    On a general Method of expressing the Paths of Light, and of the Planets, by the Coefficients of a Characteristic Function
    By William R. Hamilton, Royal Astronomer of Ireland [Dublin University Review and Quarterly Magazine,
    Vol. I, 1833, pp. 795-826.] By such steps, then, it has become an established theorem, fundamental in optical science, that the communication, whether between an illuminating body and a body illuminated, or between an object seen and a beholding eye, is effected by the gradual but very rapid passage of some thing, or influence, or state, called light, from the luminous or visible body, along mathematical or physical lines, usually called rays , and found to be, under the most common circumstances, exactly or nearly straight. Another early and important observation, was that of the broken or refracted lines of communication, between an object in water and an eye in air, and generally between a point in one ordinary medium and a point in another. A valuable series of experiments on such refraction was made and recorded by Ptolemy; but it was not till long afterwards that the law was discovered by Snellius. He found that if two lengths, in a certain ratio or proportion determined by the natures of the two media, be measured, from the point of breaking, or of bending, on the refracted ray and on the incident ray prolonged, these lengths have one common projection on the refracting surface, or on its tangent plane. This law of ordinary refraction has since been improved by Newton's discovery of the different refrangibility of the differently coloured rays; and has been applied to explain and to calculate the apparent elevation of the stars, produced by the atmosphere of the earth.

    Stars, brown dwarfs and planets
    Physics Department, University of York, Heslington, York YO10 5DD, UK
    A paper with the above title was submitted to the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society on 20 th November 2000. It was seen by three referees, all of whom recommended against publication. The purpose of this presentation is to place into the public domain a contribution to cosmogony that otherwise would not be available. For completeness the objections that have been raised are also recorded here together with associated responses and comments by the authors. The presentation is in four parts:
  • The paper, as presented to the journal, but with minor typographic corrections not affecting the scientific arguments.
    Referees' reports (as written without correction of spelling and other errors) accompanied by authors' responses.
    Rejection statement by Editors of the journal.
    General comments on the Editorial policy of the MNRAS and on the ethics of scientific refereeing.
  • One of the authors, Stephen Oxley, on whose D.Phil thesis much of this work is based, is no longer in the academic field and this presentation is made solely by M M Woolfson.

    U nlike the other small bodies in the solar system, comets have been known since antiquity. There are Chinese records of Comet Halley going back to at least 240 BC. The famous Bayeux Tapestry , which commemorates the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, depicts an apparition of Comet Halley. A s of 1995, 878 comets have been cataloged and their orbits at least roughly calculated. Of these 184 are periodic comets (orbital periods less than 200 years); some of the remainder are no doubt periodic as well, but their orbits have not been determined with sufficient accuracy to tell for sure. C omets are sometimes called dirty snowballs or "icy mudballs". They are a mixture of ices (both water and frozen gases) and dust that for some reason didn't get incorporated into planets when the solar system was formed. This makes them very interesting as samples of the early history of the solar system. W hen they are near the Sun and active, comets have several distinct parts:
    • nucleus : relatively solid and stable, mostly ice and gas with a small amount of dust and other solids;
