A friend observed that Pandora ie Pandora's box! Another asteroid I check out is my Name asteroid I'm lucky enough to be in the list. Don't know what it signifies, but it's fun to see where it lands in my friends' charts!
There are also 'city name' asteroids - see how they work in your chart. It seems Apollo is kind of prevalent in my chart. I don't know if that's good or not. Topic Closed. This topic has been transferred to this forum: Asteroid Astrology. Aen unregistered.
Thanks for the info.
Woder what the Apollo conj. Apollo in synastry might mean? During World War II, it produced 18, tanks, 48, tank diesel engines as well as over 17 million units of ammunition. Kirov Factory no. Shortly after dawn on February 15, , a superbolide meteor descended at over 55, kilometers per hour over the Ural Mountains, exploding at an altitude of 25—30 kilometers; the meteor created a momentary flash as bright as the sun and generated a shock wave that injured over a thousand people. Fragments fell around Chelyabinsk. Interior Ministry spokesman Vadim Kolesnikov said 1, people had called for medical assistance following the incident for treatment of injuries from glass broken by the explosions.
One woman suffered a broken spine. Kolesnikov said about square meters of a roof at a zinc factory had collapsed. A spokeswoman for the Emergency Ministry told the Associated Press ; the size has been estimated at 17 meters diameter with a mass of 11, metric tons. The power of the explosion was about kilotons of TNT, 20—30 times more energy than was released from the atomic bomb exploded in Hiroshima. Luckily, thanks to the high altitude of the explosion the city managed to avoid large casualties and destruction.
Chelyabinsk is the administrative center of the oblast. Within the framework of administrative divisions , it is incorporated as the City of Chelyabinsk—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts; as a municipal division, the City of Chelyabinsk is incorporated as Chelyabinsky Urban Okrug. In June , Chelyabinsk's seven city districts were granted municipal status.
Chelyabinsk is located east km south of Yekaterinburg , its elevation is — meters. The city is bisected by the river Miass , regarded as the border between the Urals and Siberia. This is reflected in the geology of the place, with low granite hills of the Urals on the western side and lower sedimentary rock of the West Siberian Plain on the eastern side; the "Leningrad bridge" connects the two sides, so it is called the "bridge of the Urals to Siberia".
Chelyabinsk itself is therefore known as "The Gateway to Siberia". Like Rome and Moscow, Chelyabinsk is said to be located on seven hills; the city has a warm summer humid continental climate farther north.
The highest precipitation is concentrated in the summer. On 27 June , at around UTC, the object passed exceptionally close to Earth's surface at a distance of 12, kilometers the diameter of the Earth. Although MD was believed to be space junk, subsequent observations confirmed that it is an asteroid. A few hours before the asteroid's nearest approach in , it appeared close to the Sun, so observations were possible for only a brief period. Backyard astronomers were able to observe it with telescopes from Australia , southern Africa, the Americas. According to original rough estimates, the asteroid's length was between 45 meters.
However, according to the more recent absolute magnitude measurement of Emily Baldwin of Astronomy Now said that there was no threat of collision, should the asteroid enter Earth's atmosphere, it would "mostly burn up in a brilliant fireball scattering a few meteorites", causing no harm to life or property on the ground.
terditingmecess.ml The 27 June close approach to Earth increased the orbital period of MD from days to days. During close approach the asteroid passed Earth at a relative speed of 6.
Asteroid Name: Apollo Named After: The Greek God of Love, Light, Talent, Prophecy, Strength and Worship Asteroid #: (type it in in the. Truth in Aspect Astrology · April 17, ·. Asteroid Apollo # is one the premier heavenly bodies for identifying intelligence. Apollo was the Sun God, the .
The asteroid is a porous rubble pile with a density similar to water. Mars Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System after Mercury. In English, Mars carries a name of the Roman god of war , is referred to as the " Red Planet " because the reddish iron oxide prevalent on its surface gives it a reddish appearance, distinctive among the astronomical bodies visible to the naked eye.
Mars is a terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere, having surface features reminiscent both of the impact craters of the Moon and the valleys and polar ice caps of Earth; the days and seasons are comparable to those of Earth, because the rotational period as well as the tilt of the rotational axis relative to the ecliptic plane are similar. Mars has two moons and Deimos , which are small and irregularly shaped.
These may be captured asteroids, similar to a Mars trojan. There are ongoing investigations assessing the past habitability potential of Mars, as well as the possibility of extant life. Future astrobiology missions are planned, including the Mars and ExoMars rovers. The volume of water ice in the south polar ice cap, if melted, would be sufficient to cover the entire planetary surface to a depth of 11 meters. In November , NASA reported finding a large amount of underground ice in the Utopia Planitia region of Mars; the volume of water detected has been estimated to be equivalent to the volume of water in Lake Superior.
Optical ground-based telescopes are limited to resolving features about kilometers across when Earth and Mars are closest because of Earth's atmosphere. Mars is half the diameter of Earth with a surface area only less than the total area of Earth's dry land. It can look like butterscotch. Like Earth, Mars has differentiated into a dense metallic core overlaid by less dense materials. The core is surrounded by a silicate mantle that formed many of the tectonic and volcanic features on the planet, but it appears to be dormant.
Besides silicon and oxygen , the most abundant elements in the Martian crust are iron, aluminum and potassium.
The average thickness of the planet's crust is about 50 km, with a maximum thickness of km. Earth's crust averages 40 km. Mars is a terrestrial planet that consists of minerals containing silicon and oxygen and other elements that make up rock; the surface of Mars is composed of tholeiitic basalt , although parts are more silica-rich than typical basalt and may be similar to andesitic rocks on Earth or silica glass. Regions of low albedo suggest concentrations of plagioclase feldspar , with northern low albedo regions displaying higher than normal concentrations of sheet silicates and high-silicon glass.
Parts of the southern highlands include detectable amounts of high-calcium pyroxenes.
Localized concentrations of hematite and olivine have been found. Much of the surface is covered by finely grained iron oxide dust. Although Mars has no evidence of a structured global magnetic field, observations show that parts of the planet's crust have been magnetized, suggesting that alternating polarity reversals of its dipole field have occurred in the past.
This paleomagnetism of magnetically susceptible minerals is similar to the alternating bands found on Earth's ocean floors. One theory, published in and re-examined in October , is that these bands suggest plate tectonic activity on Mars four billion years ago, before the planetary dynamo ceased to function and the planet's magnetic field faded, it is thought that, during the Solar System's formation, Mars was created as the result of a stochastic process of run-away accretion of material from the protoplanetary disk that orbited the Sun.
Mars has many distinctive chemical features caused by its position in the Solar System. Elements with comparatively low boiling points, such as chlorine and sulphur, are much more common on Mars than Earth. After the formation of the planets, all were subjected to the so-called " Late Heavy Bombardment ". There is evidence of an enormous impact basin in the northern hemisphere of Mars, spanning 10, by 8, km, or four times the size of the Moon's South Pole — Aitk. Orbit In physics , an orbit is the gravitationally curved trajectory of an object, such as the trajectory of a planet around a star or a natural satellite around a planet.
Orbit refers to a repeating trajectory, although it may refer to a non-repeating trajectory.
