"Blue Moon" heisst (gängigerweise) der zweite Vollmond eines Kalendermonats - a rather rare occurrence - eben so selten wie ein "blauer Mond".

Der Ausdruck engl. "blue moon" (1528) bzw. "once in a blue moon" = dt. "alle Jubeljahre einmal", "ganz selten" kam schon vor etwa 400 Jahren auf. Ursprünglich bezeichnete es etwas Unmögliches. Daraus entstand ein zeitlicher Bezug mit der Bedeutung dt. "etwas, das nie geschehen kann". Eine Hochzeit, die auf den Tag gelegt wird, an dem der Mond blau ist, wird wohl nicht stattfinden.

Anfang des 19. Jh. erschien engl. "blue moon" erstmals in gedruckter Form.

Dann aber explodierte im Jahr 1883 der Krakatoa Vulkan in Indonesien, im Jahr 1927 blies der indische Monsun nach einer langen Trockenperiode sehr viel Staub in die Atmosphäre und im Jahr 1951 förderten großflächige Brände in Kanada viele Rauchpartikel in die Luft. Und die immense Partikelanreicherung in der Atmosphäre bewirkte jeweils eine "Blaufärbung des Mondes".

Also erkannte man ab Mitte des 19. Jh. daß sich der Mond doch blau färben kann. Allerdings kam es wirklich sehr selten vor, und so nahm die Redewendung (nachweisbar seit 1821) die Bedeutung "sehr selten" an.

Im Film "Blue Moon" geht es um die Liebe:

Die Liebe treibt den wortkargen Geldboten Johnny Pichler aus dem sicheren Westen tief in den Osten Europas, wo er die geheimnisvolle blonde Shirley sucht. Die Odyssee der Gefühle endet in Odessa, wo der blaue Mond aufzieht. - Josef Hader und Detlev Buck in einem modernen Märchen-Roadmovie. "Blue Moon" ist das Spielfilmdebüt der Österreicherin Andrea Maria Dusl.

2004 July 31: Tonight: A Blue Moon

Explanation:

How often does a full moon occur twice in a single month? Exactly once in a Blue Moon. In fact, the modern usage of the term "Blue Moon" refers to the second Full Moon in a single month. Tonight's Blue Moon will be the first since November 2001. A Blue Moon typically occurs every few years. The reason for the rarity of the Blue Moon is that the 29.53 days between full moons is just slightly shorter than the number of days in the average month. Don't, however, expect the moon to look blue tonight! The term "Blue Moon" has recently been traced to an error in a magazine article in 1946. It is possible for the Moon to appear tinged by a blue hue, sometimes caused by fine dirt circulating in the Earth's atmosphere, possibly from a volcanic explosion. The above picture was taken not during a full moon but through a morning sky that appeared dark blue. The bright crescent is the only part directly exposed to sunlight - the rest of the Moon glows from sunlight reflected from the Earth. In this dramatic photo, however, the planet Jupiter is also visible along with its four largest moons.

What's a Blue Moon?
The trendy definition of "blue Moon" as the second full Moon in a month is a mistake.
July 27, 2006
by Donald W. Olson, Richard Tresch Fienberg, and Roger Sinnott

Recent decades have seen widespread popular embrace of the idea that when a calendar month contains two full Moons, the second one is called a "Blue Moon." The unusual pattern of lunar phases in early 1999 — two full Moons each in January and March, and none at all in February — triggered a groundswell of public interest. Countless newspapers and radio and TV stations ran stories about Blue Moons.

In an article entitled Once in a Blue Moon, folklorist Philip Hiscock traced the calendrical meaning of the term "Blue Moon" to the Maine Farmers' Almanac for 1937. But a page from that almanac belies the second-full-Moon-in-a-month interpretation.

Once in a Blue Moon
August 24, 2012
by Philip Hiscock

August 31st will see the second of two full moons in the same month (the other was on the 1st in North America or on the 2nd in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia). You've probably heard the second of those full moons referred to as a "blue moon" — but you might be surprised at the origin of the phrase.

"According to old folklore," some people say, the second full Moon in a calendar month is called a "blue Moon." They go on to explain that this is the origin of the expression "once in a blue Moon." But it isn't true! The term "blue Moon" has been around a long time, well over 400 years, but its calendrical meaning has become widespread only in the last 25 years.

The following table lists all blue moons from 1990 to 2010 for dates in universal time. Note that because the full moon occurs at different times (and therefore potentially on different calendar days and in different calendar months) in different time zones, the occurrence of blue moons is time zone (and daylight saving time) dependent. For example, a blue moon occurs on May 31, 2007 in the Eastern Daylight Time zone, but on June 30, 2007 in universal time. Blue moons cannot occur in February, since the Moon's synodic period is 29.531 days, but February is 29 days at its longest (during a leap year).

After several hours of searching the Internet, I came up with two explanations.

The older of these has to do with the rare occurrence of dust particles in the air and certain atmospheric conditions at night. When dust and the right conditions are present, the moon will appear blue.

The other derivation of the term, blue moon, is more recent and has to do with the appearance of two full moons in the same month. This also occurs infrequently. If you create a composite of these two explanations, you will have a good understanding of the meaning of a blue moon event.

There is another kind of "blue moon," however. On extremely rare occasions the moon actually appears to be blue. The blue color of a true "blue moon" on these occasions is thought to be due to various dust and smoke particles suspended in the Earth's atmosphere. These "blue moons" have no connection to how many full moons there have been in that particular month, and may well not even be full moons.

The idea of a blue moon has been traced back to 1528, to a sceptical little item entitled "Rede Me and Be Not Wrothe": “Yf they say the mone is belewe, we must believe that it is true”. This implies the expression had a meaning of something that was absurd, very like another moon-related proverb first recorded in the following year “They woulde make men beleue ... that ye Moone is made of grene chese”. Because it was absurd, saying that something happened only once in a blue moon was the same as saying it never happened. And this was what the phrase meant for several hundred years.

Cosmos - Rose



Engl. "Cosmos" geht zurück auf griech. "kósmos" = "Weltall", "Weltordnung". Die wörtliche Übersetzung ist "Ordnung", "Schmuck", "Dekoration", "Kleidung". Homer gebrauchte "kosmeo" um das Planen und Arrangieren von Truppenteilen zu bezeichnen. Pythagoras soll es als erster auf das Universum übertragen haben, etwa als "besterntes Himmelsgewölbe", das dann später auf den gesamten Kosmos inklusive der Erde übertragen wurde.

"Cosmos" kam zwar schon um 1200 nach England, erschien aber erst 1848 im allgemeinen Sprachgebrauch - und zwar als Übersetzung des Humboldt'schen "Kosmos". Die engl. "Cosmology" kam dann 1656 auf, der engl. "cosmonaut" 1959, allerdings auf dem Umweg über russ. "kosmonavt".

Griech. "kósmos" findet man entsprechend auch in engl. "cosmetic" = dt. "Kosmetik", frz. "cosmétique", griech. "kosmetike (téchne)" = "Kunst des Schmückens", engl. "cosmography" = dt. "Kosmographie" = "Beschreibung der Entstehung und Entwicklung des Kosmos", engl. "cosmology" = dt. "Kosmologie" = "Lehre von der Entstehung und Entwicklung des Weltalls", engl. "cosmopolitan" = dt. "Kosmopolit" von griech. "kosmopolítes" = "Weltbürger".

Cosmos 1
Die von einer internationalen Privat-Initiative entwickelte Sonde Cosmos 1 ist das weltweit erste Projekt, das ein Raumschiff im Weltall allein mit der Kraft der Sonne antreiben soll. Dazu bedient es sich fächerförmig ausgestellten Segeln, die die von der Sonne ausgesendeten Lichtpartikel, so genannte Photonen, einfängt. Prallen diese auf das Sonnensegel, geben sie dem Raumschiff in der Schwerelosigkeit einen Beschleunigungsimpuls und damit die Antriebskraft, die in der bisherigen Raumfahrt durch chemisch basierte Verbrennungstechnik erzeugt wird. Solarsegel sind ein im Weltall noch unerprobter Antrieb von Raumfahrzeugen - Cosmos 1 soll die Möglichkeit des kontrollierten Segelfluges im All demonstrieren.

Les mots soleil, terre et lune s'écrivent avec une majuscule lorsqu'ils désignent l'astre, la planète ou le satellite lui-même, notamment dans les textes scientifiques. Mais ils s’écrivent avec une minuscule dans les autres cas, c’est-à-dire dans la langue courante. Le même raisonnement s’applique aux noms univers et cosmos : ils prennent une majuscule en astronomie, mais une minuscule au sens courant.

Crescent
Croissant
crescentic (W3)

Das engl. "Crescent" = "Halbmond" findet man auch im frz. "Croissant" obwohl man eher eine Verbindung zu "Kreuz" vermuten könnte. In beiden steckt das ide. "*ker-" = "wachsen". Mit "Crescent" ist wörtlich genommen nur die "zunehmende Mondsichel" gemeint und die Ähnlichkeit dazu gab dem französischen Gebäck seinen Namen.

Gelegentlich wird dazu noch eine Geschichte erzählt, wonach der frz. "Croissant" sich direkt auf den "türkischen Halbmond" beziehen soll.

Da es einige Strassen gibt, deren Aussehen (mit den Häuserreihen) einem Halbmond ähnelt, findet man "Crescent" auch in vielen Strassennamen in englischsprachigen Ländern.

The crescent is the First Quarter Moon, occurs about a week after New Moon, in the north hemisphere is shaped somewhat like the letter "D", and the Last Quarter Moon like a letter "C"; that's why the Romans said that the Moon is a liar, just because when is "crescent (growing)" is like a "D" format, and when is "decrescent" (waning) is like "C" format, in the southern hemisphere is the opposed the crescent is like the letter "C", so analyzing by this way, the countries of the North Hemisphere if want to display the "crescent", the moon should point to the hoist and the countries of south hemisphere pointing to the fly.

crescent
1399, from Anglo-Fr. "cressaunt", from O.Fr. "creissant", from L. "crescentum" (nom. "crescens"), pp. of "crescere" = "come forth", "spring up", "grow", "thrive," from PIE base "*ker-" = "to grow" (cf. L. "Ceres" = "goddess of agriculture", "creare" = "to bring forth", "create", "produce"; Gk. "kouros" = "boy", "kore" = "girl"; Arm. "serem" = "bring forth", "serim" = "be born").

First applied to the waxing moon, "luna crescens", but subsequently mistaken to mean the shape, not the stage.

A badge or emblem of the Turkish sultans (probably chosen for its suggestion of "increase"); figurative sense of "Muslim political power" is from 1589, but modern writers often falsely associate it with the Saracens of the Crusades or the Moors of Spain. Horns of the waxing moon are on the viewer's left side; those of the waning moon are on his right. "Croissant" is the modern Fr. form of the word. The original L. sense is preserved in "crescendo", borrowed 1776 as a musical phrase from It., from L. "crescendo", abl. of gerund of "crescere".

cynosure, hound, canis, canine, Canary Islands, *kwon-, *ors-, arse, ass, Arsch (W3)

Das engl. "cynosure" = "Anziehungspunkt" geht zurück auf griech. "kunosoura" = "Hundeschwanz". Der Hundeschwanz gehört zu einem Sternbild das engl. "Little Dipper" = "Kleiner Bär" genannt wird. (Die Griechen assoziierten wohl eher einen Hund mit diesem Sternbild.) An dessen Ende steht der Nordstern ("Ursa minor"). Dieser diente früheren Navigatoren als Leitstern. Und so wurde er sinnbildlich zum "Anziehungspunkt".

(E1)(L1) http://www.alphadictionary.com/goodword/date/2006/11/13

...
comprising "kuon", "kynos" = "dog" + "oura" = "tail". The Proto-Indo-European (PIE) root "*kwon-", from which "kuon" derives, also gave rise to English "hound" (Anm.: und damit auch für dt. "Hund") and Latin "canis" = "dog". Latin "canis", in turn, is the source of English "canine" and the "Canary" in "Canary Islands". The name of these islands was originally Latin "Canariae Insulae" = "Islands of Dogs" and English simply adapted the spelling in borrowing it.

We must be careful with the PIE root "*ors-" = "tail" which produced the second constituent in Greek. In English it became the naughty word for the human rear end; the British pronunciation even remains close to the original. The roots of today's Good Word reveal an impressive historical span from the profane to the celestial.

empyrean (W3)

Engl. "empyrean"= dt. "lichtstrahlend", "himmlisch" geht über spätlat. "empyrius" zurück auf griech. "empýrios" = dt. "feurig". Die Bedeutung "zum Empyreum gehörend" (spätlat. "empyreum", "empyrius") erhielt es durch den alexandrinischen Astronomen des zweiten Jh. Ptolemäus, der den 5ten Himmel als Sitz der Götter (der Seligen) als reines Feuer beschrieb und ihm einen Namen gab, der auf griech. "empuros" = dt. "feurig" basierte. Diese Sicht überlebte bis zur scholastischen Philosophie.

Fireball - Rose

"Fireball" kommt außer als Name einer Rose auch als Name einer Suchmaschine von "Lycos Europa" vor.

"Fireball" ist eine Weiterentwicklung der Suchmaschine "Flipper", hieß zwischenzeitlich "Kitty" (nach der Projektgruppe "Künstliche Intelligenz und Textverstehen", "KIT", an der FU Berlin).

Auch im militärischen Umfeld gab es den Begiff "Fireball".

In der Astronomie kann "Feuerkugel" für die Sonne oder für andere ähnliche Himmelskörper stehen.

Bei Explosionen oder Blitzen (Kugelblitzen) kann auch ein "Feuerball" auftreten.

Schließlich bezeichnet engl. "fireball" auch einen großen Meteoriten.

Fireball
fireballer (W3)

Wann und in welchem Zusammenhang der engl. "fireball" (1545-55) zum ersten Mal auftrat ist vermutlich nicht mehr nachzuvollziehen. Eine Definition findet man zumindest im Bereich der Astronomie. Dort wird ein Meteor, der mindestens die Größe des größten Planeten hat, als "fireball" bezeichnet. Man findet ihn allerdings auch in militäriscem Zusammenhang. Insbesondere wird die Explosion einer Atombombe auch mit einem "Fireball" verglichen.

Von der mehr oder weniger gegenständlichen Bezeichnung gibt es den "fireball" auch als sinngemäße Übertragung im Sport. Und der Spieler, der einen solchen Ball gesetzt hat kann selbst auch als "Fireball" bezeichnet werden - wie überhaupt besonders dynamische Menschen als "Fireball" bezeichnet werden können.

Den "Fireball" findet man auch als Comic-Figur, wo er in "Pep Comics #12" im Februar 1941 zum ersten Mal auftrat. Allerdings wurde er schon mit "Pep Comics #21" (November, 1941) in Pension geschickt.

Im Baseball gibt es einen umgangssprachlichen "fireballer" als Bezeichnung für einen Spieler, der einen extrem schnellen Ball schlägt.

"Deep Purple" hatten auch einen Titel mit der Bezeichnung "Fireball" herausgebracht.

firmament
firmamentum
raqia
*dher-
*dhor- (W3)

Das dt., frz., engl. "Firmament" hat - obwohl es den etwas vagen Sternenhimmel über uns bezeichnet - einen festen Hintergrund. Früher hatte man die Vorstellung, dass es sich um ein "festes" Himmelsgewölbe über der Erde handelt.

Das Wort dt. "Firmament", frz. "firmament" (1119), engl. "firmament" (13. Jh.) geht auf die biblische Bezeichnung für den Himmel zurück und basiert auf dem lat. "firmamentum" = dt. "Stütze", "Träger", "Unterstützung". Das Substantiv geht zurück auf das Adjektiv lat. "firmare" = dt. "festigen", "stützen", "kräftigen", lat. "firmus" = dt. "fest", "stark", "kräftig", worauf auch engl. "firm" zurück geht, wowie engl. "affirm", "confirm", "farm", "fermata".

Mit dem lat. "firmamentum" wurde das griech. "stereoma" = dt. "festes, solides Bauwerk" übersetzt. Dieses wiederum war die Übersetzung des hebr. "raqia", das im alten Testament sowohl die Himmelswölbung als auch den Erdboden bezeichnete und wörtlich dt. "Ausdehnung" bedeutet. Dem hebr. "raqia" liegt "raqa" = dt. "glatthämmern", "erweitern" zu Grunde. Im Aramäischen bedeutete es "befestigen", was wohl zur irreführenden griechischen und lateinischen Übersetzung veranlasste.

Über die Wurzel ide. "*dher-", "*dhor-" = dt. "fest halten", "aushalten", "unterstützen" ist sanskr. "dharma" verwandt mit lat. "firmus" = dt. "fest", "stark", "kräftig" und lat. "fortis" = dt. "stark", "kräftig", "rüstig". Daraus wiederum gingen dt. "fest" und engl. "firm" = dt. "fest", "standhaft", "firmament" (das "feste" Himmelsgewölbe über der Erde), engl. "affirm" = dt. "versichern", "beteuern", engl. "fort" = dt. "Fort", "Festung" und viele andere Wörter hervor.

Im Griechischen findet man griech. "thronos" = dt. "Sitz", "Thron" woraus natürlich dt. "Thron" und engl. "throne" entstandt. (Obwohl also "feststehend" kann aber auch ein "Thron wackeln".)

Darauf basiert auch sanskr. "dharma" = "Gesetz", "Satzung", womit auch die Lehre Buddhas bezeichnet wird.

22. Hevelius, Johannes. Firmamentum Sobiescianum sive Uranographia. Gdansk, 1690.

The Hevelius Firmamentum was the first star atlas to rival Bayer's Uranometria in accuracy, utility, innovation, and influence. Hevelius was perhaps the most active observational astronomer of the last half of the seventeenth century. His star atlas is notable for many reasons. It contains fifty-six large, exquisite, double-page engraved star maps. The star positions for the charts were derived from Hevelius's own star catalog, based on his own observations, which was first published along with the atlas. It is unique among the Grand Atlases in choosing to depict the constellations as they would appear on a globe, that is, from the outside looking in, rather than from a geocentric point of view, as Bayer and most others adopted. So Aquila and Antinous swoop down to the right, rather than to the left as in Bayer. A comparison of two details of Auriga from Hevelius and Bayer reveal the differences in orientation of the two atlases.

The Hevelius atlas also introduced eleven new constellations, including Scutum Sobiescanum, Canes Venatici, Leo minor, Lynx, Sextans, Lacerta (the lizard), and the fox with the goose, Vulpecula cum Anser. Four of his innovations were eventually subsumed into other constellations, but the seven just mentioned are all still in use today.

A further innovation of Hevelius was in the depiction of the southern stars. Bayer had based his southern polar map on the observations of Keyser and Houtman, and although the star positions were very inaccurate, no one had improved upon them in the succeeding century. However, in 1676 Edmond Halley had journeyed to St. Helena in the South Atlantic and had observed the positions of 341 southern stars, and a catalog and map were published in 1679. However, the new positions first became widely known when Hevelius used Halley's chart as the basis for his own southern map. A comparison of corresponding details of the Bayer and Hevelius southern maps shows the improvement.

There were four atlases that were directly inspired by Hevelius: You may go directly to any of these atlases, or click on the Next button to visit them in order.

24. Thomas, Corbinianus. Mercurii philosophici firmamentum firmianum. Frankfurt/Leipzig, 1730.

Little is known about Corbinianus Thomas, a Benedictine monk at Salzburg, but his Firmamentum is one of the unsung treasures of celestial cartography. It contains 54 modestly-sized etchings of individual constellations, but the small plates exude considerable charm. The plate of Andromeda is the most successful, with the billowy Baroque drapery interacting dramatically with the differently shaded rock behind. Some of his other constellation figures are also quite unusual. His Capricorn is severely truncated, indicating in a striking visual fashion that Capricorn is sandwiched in the sky between Sagitarius and Aquarius. Thomas also banded the region of the zodiac, which is quite an improvement over the uniform darkening of Bayer.

Thomas was one of the first celestial cartographers to devote a separate plate to Camelopardalis, a constellation that first appeared on globes around 1600, but which usually in star atlases had to share billing with Cepheus or Cassiopeia. And Thomas was the first cartographer to provide individual plates for some of the southern constellations, such as Indus and Pavo which customarily were shown only as a small part of a single plate or planisphere centered on the south celestial pole.

As we see in a detail of Andromeda on the right, Thomas used an interesting nomenclature system: Bayer Greek letter, Roman numeral for magnitude, and Arabic numeral for reference to a star catalog. This system originated on the large globes of Coronelli, as indeed did many of Thomas's figures.

Thomas did invent one new constellation of his own, Corona Firmiana, to honor his patron, the archbishop of Salzburg, but it was never used again. Nor, alas, was most of the rest of Thomas' charming atlas.

galaxy (W3)

Engl. "galaxy" (1350-1400), dt. "Galaxie", (dt. "Milchstraßensystem", "Sternsystem") bezeichnet sehr große Sternengruppen. Die Milchstraße ist z.B. die engl. "galaxy" in der sich unser Sonnensystem und damit die Menschheit befindet. Sowohl engl. "Milky Way" als auch engl. "galaxy" sollen zum ersten Mal in einem Gedicht von Geoffrey Chaucer (1340 - 1400) in den Zeilen "See yonder, lo, the galaxy, which they call the Milky Way, because it is white." zu finden sein. Dabei ist engl. "milky way" die Lehnübersetzung und engl. "galaxy" die direkte Übernahme des lat. "galaxias" bzw. griech. "galaxía" = dt. "Milchstraße" und damit griech. "gála", gen. griech. "gálaktos" = dt. "Milch".

Das engl. "galaxy" geht über altfrz. "galaxie", lat. "galaxias" zurück auf griech. "galaxias", "galaxias kyklos", griech. "galaktos" = "milk", dt. "Milch", und entsprechend engl. "Milky Way".
Den Stamm "galact-" findet man z.B. auch in engl. "lactose", der Bezeichnung für einen Zucker, der in Milch gefunden wurde.
Das engl. "lettuce" = "Salat" geht zurück auf lat. "lactuca", einer Pflanze mit milchig-weißem Saft.
Auch in frz. "lait" = dt. "Milch" kann man einen Teil der griechischen Wurzel finden.

In analysing the use of force against satellites a fundamental irony of linguistics appears. The etymology of the word "satellite" shows the Latin origin of the word, namely satellitis, which in its incipient use in antiquity meant "garde du corps" or "bodyguard". The use of this word to describe an object orbiting much larger objects is in fact quite poetic, invoking images of protection and security. With the evolution of scientific paradigms permeating the vocabulary of our epoch, the original meaning was lost and the word developed a more scientific connotation. Meanwhile, and herein lies the beauty of the analogy, the use of "satellites" in fact became more akin to that of a bodyguard as artificial satellites developed an important role in the national security of states. This paper will analyse the legality of the application of force against these orbiting bodyguards. The legality of the use of force will be evaluated by applying the Law of Armed Conflicts (LOAC) to the use of anti-satellite weapons (ASAT).

Solstice (W3)

Engl. "solstice", frz. "solstice" = dt. "Sonnenwende" setzt sich zusammen aus lat. "sol" = dt. "Sonne" und lat. "sistere" = dt. "hinstellen", "hinbringen", "aufstellen", "errichten", zu dem Stamm lat. "stit-" ("sisto", "stiti", "steti", "statum") = dt. "stillstehen", "stehen", "stehen bleiben".

Das lat. "sistere" findet man auch in dt. "Resistance", frz. "résistance", engl. "resistance" = dt. "Widerstand", "Resistenz", frz. "résister" = dt. "widerstehen", dt. "resistieren".

"Solstice" comes from Latin and literally means "sun stand" thus sun stand (still). A solstice occurs twice a year around June 22 and December 22.

"Solstice" literally means "sun - stand" in Latin. "Solstitium", from "sol", "sun" and "sistere", "to stand"

The "solstice" marks the beginning of summer and the beginning of winter when the sun appears to stop climbing higher each day (summer) or stop sinking low each day (winter). It's the two points on the ecliptic when the sun is the farthest from the celestial equator.

The longest and shortest days of the year — the days when the sun is furthest from the Equator — are each called a "solstice".

In the Northern Hemisphere, the "summer solstice" occurs on June 21 or 22 and the "winter solstice" on December 21 or 22. In the Southern Hemisphere, where the seasons are reversed, the solstices are exactly the opposite. For several days around the time of the solstices, the sun's appearance on the horizon at sunrise and sunset seems to occur at the same spot, before it starts drifting to the north or south again.

"Solstice" gets its shine from "sol", the Latin word for "sun". The ancients added "sol" to "-stit-"= ("standing") and came up with "solstitium". Middle English speakers shortened "solstitium" to "solstice"; in the 13th century.

The sun reaches one of the two points on the ecliptic at which its distance from the celestial equator is greatest in the year - the other point is reached on or about December 22nd.

We're standing still because the word "solstice" has a rough translation in Latin words meaning "the sun standing", or "stopping". Once you stop thinking that over-(after all, it isn't the sun that's actually moving; ecliptic names "the great circle of the celestial sphere that is the apparent path of the sun or of the earth as seen from the sun") - you may be ready to move on to summer.

Traditionally, in the northern hemisphere, the "solstice" marks the start of "summer", right? Not necessarily. It is true when a weather-watcher is reckoning astronomically (and astronomical summer ends at the September equinox, according to this calculation); but the calendrical summer season comprises June, July and August … at least in the U.S. In Britain, "summer" runs from mid-May to mid-August. And "summer" also enjoys a more general, less calendar-specific sense naming "the warmer half of the year" or "a period of warm weather or sunshine".

Finally, there are the figurative senses of summer: "one of the years of one's life" (as in a girl of seventeen summers); and "early middle age; the period of maturing powers".

"solstitial", "adjective"

of, relating to, or characteristic of a "solstice" and especially the "summer solstice" happening or appearing at or associated with a "solstice".

"Solstitial" arrived in English in the 14th century by way of Anglo-French. Both "solstitial" and "solstice" can be traced back to the Latin word "solstitium", meaning "solstice", and ultimately to "sol", meaning "sun", and "-stit-" or "-stes", meaning "standing". Some unsurprising relatives include "solar", "solariam" (a room used for sunbathing or therapeutic exposure to light), and "parasol" (a lightweight umbrella used as a sunshade). A less obvious relative is "armistice", which was coined partially by analogy with the way "solstice" had been formed from the "-stitium" ending.

...
Word History: Today's Good Word was borrowed via Old French from Latin "solstitium", comprising two words: "sol" "sun" + "stitium" "stoppage" from "sistere" "come to a halt", "stop". The implication of the Latin word is "the time when the sun stands still". The oldest form of "sol" seems to have been something like "sawel-en", for it turns up with the "L" in Latin, an "N" in German ("Sonne") and English, and both in Russian: "soln-ce" (the "-ce" suffix is an affectionate ending). The Latin stem turns up in many English borrowings like "parasol" (Italian "for the sun"), semantically related to "umbrella" from Latin "umbra" "shade". Both were originally for protection from the "sun", not rain.

"SOLSTICE" (Lat. "solstitium", from "sol", "sun", and "sistere", "to stand still"), in astronomy either of the two points at which the sun reaches its greatest declination north or south. Each solstice is upon the ecliptic midway between the equinoxes, and therefore go from each. The term is also applied to the moment at which the sun reaches the point thus defined.

"Solstice" (ultimately from the Latin word "solstitium", meaning, literally "sun standing") and "equinox" (from the Latin term "aequinoctium", a combination of the terms for "equal" and "night") refer to the times of the year when, respectively, daylight is shortest and day and night are of equal length.

The adjective "equinoctial" (or "equinoctal") refers literally to the first day of spring and fall and has no established figurative meaning. (The first variant is also used as a noun synonymous with equator or referring to a storm during the equinoctial period.)

6. Saturn

The Roman god said to have been the father of Jupiter was associated with traits opposite to those of the scion who usurped his rule; a "saturnine" person is gloomy, sardonic, and surly, as opposed to the jovial type, though the adjective also has the neutral sense of "sluggish" and "serious". This temperament was said in the Middle Ages to be the influence of the planet farthest from the Sun (or the one believed at the time to be the most remote) and the slowest.

But the god was also identified with justice and strength, as well as with agriculture, and later was celebrated in the weeklong "winter-solstice feast" known as the "Saturnalia", when the rules of moral conduct and social status were suspended. That name, with the initial letter lowercased, now refers to any unrestrained merrymaking.

"troll" (v) "to sing in a full, rolling voice"; c. 1575. The word derives for a hunting term meaning "to look for game in a wandering fashion". "Yuletide" is used now as a synonym for the Christmas season in general. In a more narrow sense it can refer to the "12 days of Christmas," usually counted from Christmas on December 25 to the arrival of the Three Kings on January 6 (Epiphany). Before the arrival of Christianity, Germanic pagans, including the ancestors of English Christians, celebrated the "Winter Solstice" as Yule. The Yule log represented the renewal of the sun. The suffix "-tide" in "Yuletide" is from O.E. "tid", "point or portion of time", "due time", The "tide" that ebbs and flows is from the same word. When the word "carol" entered English about 1300, it referred to a dance. The meaning of "carol" as "Christmas hymn" dates from 1502.

When Does Summer Really End?
...
The year is divided into the four seasons based on the two equinoxes and the two solstices. The summer and winter solstices, which typically land around June 21 and December 22, mark the shortest and the longest days of the year. The autumnal and vernal equinoxes, which fall around September 23 and March 21, mark the points in the year when the day and the night are of equal lengths. Hence the word equinox, from the Latin roots meaning “equal night.” Astronomically speaking, these four solar events mark the middle of the seasons rather than their beginning and ending, but we separate the year into meteorological seasons which reflect the average temperature patterns and climate.

Just as the summer solstice tends to fall a little ways into summer vacation, the autumnal equinox typically falls at the end of September, a few weeks into the school year and well after the Dog Days, the hottest period of the summer.

"Summer Solstice" 2016 (Southern Hemisphere)

Today marks the first day of summer and the longest day of the year for the southern hemisphere. The "summer solstice" is named for the brief time when the sun appears to pause its movement across the sky. At that moment, the tilt and rotation of the earth shifts our view of the sun’s direction from northward to southward, causing it to hang momentarily suspended. Doodler Nate Swinehart created a family of anthropomorphized rocks to commemorate the change of season. Enjoy the peak of summer in the southern hemisphere with today’s Doodle!

Besides it being the start of the summer, today is very special: The sun will set in the centerline of every NYC street (photobloggers, get ready!). American Museum of Natural History astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson desrcribes this phenomenon beautifully in the Natural History Magazine, explaining that like Stonehenge where the sun sets in alignment with stones during the "summer solstice", Manhattan has two "special" days where the sun sets between buildings - May 28 and July 12:

Solstice Moonrise, Cape Sounion

Explanation: Today's "solstice" marks the northernmost point of the Sun's annual motion through planet Earth's sky and the astronomical beginning of the northern hemisphere's summer. But only two days ago, the Full Moon nearest the "solstice" rose close to the ecliptic plane opposite the Sun, near its southernmost point for the year. Astronomer Anthony Ayiomamitis recorded this dramatic picture of the "solstice" Full Moon rising above Cape Sounion, Greece. The twenty-four hundred year old Temple of Poseidon lies in the foreground, also visible to sailors on the Aegean Sea. In this well-planned single exposure, a telescopic lens makes the Moon loom large, but even without optical aid casual skygazers often find the Full Moon looking astonishingly large when seen near the horizon. That powerful visual effect is known as the Moon Illusion.

Sunrise Solstice at Stonehenge

Explanation: Today the Sun reaches its northernmost point in planet Earth's sky. Called a solstice, the date traditionally marks a change of seasons -- from spring to summer in Earth's Northern Hemisphere and from fall to winter in Earth's Southern Hemisphere. The above image was taken during the week of the 2008 summer solstice at Stonehenge in United Kingdom, and captures a picturesque sunrise involving fog, trees, clouds, stones placed about 4,500 years ago, and a 5 billion year old large glowing orb. Even given the precession of the Earth's rotational axis over the millennia, the Sun continues to rise over Stonehenge in an astronomically significant way.

Equinox and Solstice

In particular (drawing above), the angle between the Earth's axis and the Earth-Sun line changes throughout the year. Twice a year, at the spring and fall equinox (around March 21 and September 22 - the exact date may vary a bit) the two directions are perpendicular.

Twice a year, the angle is as big as it can get, at the summer and winter solstices, when it reaches 23.5 degrees. In the summer solstice (around June 21) the north pole is inclined towards the Sun, in the winter solstice (around December 21) it faces away from it.

Let us look at the summer solstice first, with the Sun on the left.

An Ancient Solar Celebration

Nearly every agricultural society has marked the high point of summer in some way, shape or form. On this date – usually around June 21 or 22 (or December 21/22 in the southern hemisphere) – the sun reaches its zenith in the sky. It is the longest day of the year, and the point at which the sun seems to just hang there without moving – in fact, the word "solstice" is from the Latin word "solstitium", which literally translates to "sun stands still". The travels of the sun were marked and recorded. Stone circles such as Stonehenge were oriented to highlight the rising of the sun on the day of the summer solstice.

"Solstice"

Solstices happen twice a year — in June and December. The June solstice is around June 21, when the Sun is directly overhead the Tropic of Cancer. The December solstice takes place around December 21. On this day, the Sun is precisely over the Tropic of Capricorn. The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year, while the summer solstice is the longest day of the year. Solstices are opposite on either side of the equator.

"Summer Solstice"

The summer solstice is the longest day of the year. Solstices are opposite on either side of the equator; the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere is the June solstice, while in the Southern Hemisphere, it is the December solstice. Read more...

Meaning of Solstice

"Solstice" (Latin: "solstitium") means "sun-stopping". The point on the horizon where the sun appears to rise and set, stops and reverses direction after this day. On the solstice, the sun does not rise precisely in the east, but rises to the north of east and sets to the north of west, meaning it's visible in the sky for a longer period of time.

Although the June solstice marks the first day of astronomical summer, it's more common to use meteorological definitions of seasons, making the solstice midsummer or midwinter.
