The Layers of the Sun

The Sun is the largest object in our solar system, it is also the closest star to Earth. The Sun is also known as an "ordinary star", without the Sun there would be no light in the world and we would be living in darkness.

The layers of the sun are the Core, Radiative Zone, Convection Zone, Subsurface Flows, Photosphere, Chromosphere, Corona, Prominence, Granules, and the Sun Spots.

Definitions of the layers of the Sun:

Core- The source of the suns energy.

Radiative Zone- Radiant energy is transferred from the core in the form of photons.

Convection Zone- Hot plasma rises, and cools as it comes closer to the surface, and then it falls to be heated and rised again.

Subsurface Flows- The flow of water.

Photosphere- A bright part of the star where light and heat radiate.

Chromosphere- A reddish gaseous layer that is immediately above the photosphere of the sun.

Corona- The outermost region of the sun's atmosphere it is seen as a white halo during a solar eclipse.

Prominence- Cool clouds of hydrogen gas that are above the sun's photosphere in the corona.

Granules- This is the grainy appearance of the solar photosphere, it is produced by the tops of these convective cells.

Sun Spots- Temporary phenomena on the photosphere of the Sun that can be seen as dark spots (compared to surrounding regions).


Thank you so much

On Monday, 2016 May 09, Mercury will transit the Sun for the first time since 2006. The transit or passage of a planet across the face of the Sun is a relatively rare occurrence. As seen from Earth, only transits of Mercury and Venus are possible. There are approximately 13 transits of Mercury each century. In comparison, transits of Venus occur in pairs with more than a century separating each pair.

The principal events occurring during a transit are conveniently characterized by contacts, analogous to the contacts of an annular solar eclipse. The transit begins with contact I, which is the instant when the planet's disk is externally tangent to the Sun. Shortly after contact I, the planet can be seen as a small notch along the solar limb. The entire disk of the planet is first seen at contact II when the planet is internally tangent to the Sun. During the next several hours, the silhouetted planet slowly traverses the brilliant solar disk. At contact III, the planet reaches the opposite limb and once again is internally tangent to the Sun. Finally, the transit ends at contact IV when the planet's limb is externally tangent to the Sun. Contacts I and II define the phase called ingress while contacts III and IV are known as egress. Position angles for Mercury at each contact are measured counterclockwise from the north point on the Sun's disk.

Rahu and Ketu
Background: There are several legends about Rahu and Ketu in the case of other celestial bodies. We do not find the names of Rahu and Ketu in the most ancient scriptures. Only seven planets are mentioned in the scriptures. The name Rahu first appears in 'Mahabharata'. In astronomy, Rahu is considered the dragon's head and is also known as the north node of Moon. Ketu is known as dragon's tail, which gives birth to comets and meteors and is known as the south pole of Moon. These two are called 'Chaya Grahas', meaning shadow planets. They do not rule any zodiac sign and are not characterised as male or female.
Eclipse: A solar eclipse occurs when Sun, Moon and Rahu or Ketu fall in the same zodiacal longitude. While Rahu is responsible for a solar eclipse, Ketu is for lunar eclipse. The ancient sages have given very accurate calculations about the eclipses and they have not taken any folk tale or legend in their calculations. Astronomically, the exact information is given in Brihatsamhita of Varahamihira about eclipses.
Role: Though Rahu and Ketu are 'Chaya Grahas' they have also been assigned certain significations and characteristics in Astrology. No Lordship has been given to Rahu and Ketu, but certain signs have been considered as their own house. However this allotment is described, with slight variations, by different authorities, and it is advisable to follow one's own favourite authority.
Malefics: Both, Rahu and Ketu are extremely malefic planets. Rahu is treated similar to Saturn while Ketu to Mars. Ketu is a fiery planet like Mars and Sun. Rahu is signified as Pithamaha (father's father) while Ketu is signified as 'Mathamaha' (father's mother).
Significance: Rahu gives a low class mind signifying cruelty. It also governs all sorts of poisonous chemicals. There is no equivalent to Rahu in giving sudden luck in gambling. It also represents diplomacy, cheating, belting, gambling, speculation, lottery, mining, chemicals and sudden success without much effort. A well placed Rahu can make the native wealthy, powerful and well connected in society. An ill placed Rahu can create mental tensions, poverty, loss of honour and prestige.
Rahu Kaal: In Indian astrology each day of the week has been assigned to the ruling planet but Rahu and Ketu are given only one and half hour time in a day in which they cast their malefic influence. It is called 'Rahu Kaal'. One should avoid auspicious work like starting a new business, buying some things, journeys and attending interviews during this time.
Diseases: Rahu can cause scabies, strong food poisoning, and deformation of hand, foot and eye, leprosy and skin diseases. Dental deformation, drowning suicides, hiccups, palpitation, rheumatism and epilepsy are also caused by Rahu.
Remedies: Feeding the ants is considered one way to propitiate Rahu. The gem stone related to Rahu is hessonite and it rules the number 4.
Articles for donation: Mustard, radish, coal, and sesame should be donated on Saturday morning to ward off the evils of Rahu.
Ketu: Ketu is a headless half planet, not as malefic as Rahu. It is considered Moksha Karaka (cause of liberation from the cycle of birth and death). It gives spiritual knowledge and non attachment to material pleasures. Ketu like Rahu is retrograde in motion.
Effects of Rahu: Ketu gives us wisdom, healing power, tantric healing, psychic abilities and healing powers possessed by evil spirits. Ketu influences pharmaceutical industry, medicine and astrology.
Misconception: There is a common misconception that Ketu is a dreadful planet. But actually, Ketu bestows supreme form of spiritual enlightenment which is similar to a great boon for all the natives.
Diseases: Ketu can cause infections from insects like worms, lice, wounds etc.
Remedies: Worship lord Ganesha and also donate black things like mustard on Sundays.
Gem: Ketu's gemstone is cat's eye and he rules number 7 in Indian numerology. Although, Rahu and Ketu are not considered main planets, they play a major role in a one’s life according to astrology.

Once, there was a man who was very proud of his beautiful yard outside the house. He was mowing the grass regularly and took good care of it. Once he noticed that many yellow dandelions started growing on his lawn. That made him very unhappy and he decided to get rid of them. He tried to do it in many ways and failed. The dandelions kept growing more and more. After all unsuccessful attempts, he wrote a mail to local department of agriculture about how he has been fighting dandelions and listed all the methods he tried. He finished his mail with the question: "What would you suggest me to do?"... After few days he got a reply back: "We suggest you to start loving them"...

HOPE THATS NOT ONE OF OURS! SEX DOLL MISTAKEN FOR 'ANGEL'.
Indonesian police have confiscated a sex toy from a remote village after its inhabitants and some on social media mistook it for an "angel".
The doll was found in March floating in the sea by a fisherman in the Banggai islands in Sulawesi province.
His family took care of the doll, and pictures soon spread online along with claims it was an angel.
Police investigated amid fears the rumours would cause unrest, and found it was in fact an inflatable sex doll.
               
Indonesian news portal Detik said photos of the doll dressed demurely and wearing a hijab spread on social media shortly after its discovery.

Rumours then began to spread that it was a "bidadari" along with unverified stories about how it was found "stranded and crying", prompting the police investigation.
Many across Indonesia continue to hold strong beliefs in the supernatural, including the existence of "bidadari", which is a type of angel or spirit.
Local police chief Heru Pramukarno told reporters that villagers had found the doll shortly after the rare March solar eclipse that swept across South East Asia.
The timing of the discovery led some to believe the doll had a divine provenance.
"They have no internet, they don't know what a sex toy is," the police chief was quoted as saying by AFP news agency.

"The blood in my veins is cursed. 'Twould be best for everyone if I were ti disappear forever. Goodbye, we will not meet again."

Name: Alucard/Adrian Fahrenheit Tepes

Age: Immortal (Physically 18.)

Gender: Male

Race: Dhampir

Appearance: Alucard first debuted in Castlevania III for the Nintendo Entertainment System, where he was designed by T. Fujimoto and I. Urata. Alucard's subsequent appearances would largely be designed by Ayami Kojima, who managed the character designs for Symphony of the Night and Aria of Sorrow among others. Kojima depicted Alucard with Bishōnen-style art.

Alucard is a man physically in his late teens with long white blond hair. His most recurring garb is the one from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Fitting with that game's setting, Alucard wears 18th century style clothing. He wears a black colored jacket consisting of side seams held together by four square brooches that run down vertically, and a belt. Around his neck he wears a large white cravat. Over the jacket Alucard wears a long overcoat with a decorative pattern. Over his other garments he also wears a cape that resembles Bela Lugosi's. The weapon that Alucard usually is portrayed with is the Alucard Sword, a family heirloom from his mother.

His debut appearance from Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse differs greatly from his other incarnations. His only visible piece of clothing is a cape. Alucard's look more closely resembles that of a vampire than his later depictions; fangs, pointy ears, and long finger nails are clearly visible. The cape was the only trait that carried over to later designs.

Personality: Alucard, at first glance, looks like a cool individual of few words and strong determination. However, he also endures great suffering because of his blood curse, a curse to roam the world forever fighting and he suffered deeply due to the death of his mother Lisa, by human hands in which made him feel cold and bitterness towards humans. Alucard is pessimistic, always has a plan for everything, leaves nothing to chance, and will do everything necessary to end Dracula regardless of the cost.

Alucard always seems to stay away from the people around him, given his vampiric condition. He decided to completely exile himself from the world under an eternal sleep. He did not awake from it until Symphony of the Night. It also seems that he forges camaraderie quickly in precarious situations, and also the assistance provided as a minor character in Dracula's Curse.

In Symphony of the Night, Alucard feels completely responsible for dealing with Dracula, whatever the consequences. Speaking to Maria, he is indifferent about Richter being under evil control. Alucard bids a cold goodbye to Richter and Maria at the end of Symphony. Though he forges little human attachment, it is notable that when the Succubus posed as his mother Lisa, Alucard's emotions flared. Alucard also does not withhold his feelings to fight once more against his father, who at the end of the battle quotes some sentences spoken by his mother.

Powers/Abilities/Skills:
Dark Magic: Although Alucard can more than hold his own physically, it is magically where he is truly dangerous. Like his father, Alucard can use many types of dark magic, it can be said that his powers is at least ½ of what Dracula's is, since Dracula trained him personally. Alucard mastered most of Dracula's own attacks, such as Hellfire, Dark Metamorphosis, Tetra Spirit and Soul Steal.
Shapeshifting: Alucard can shapeshift into a wolf, bat or mist to get to certain areas. He is also invulnerable for a short frame in the middle of the transformation process. With the aid of some relics, Alucard can enhance his shapeshifting; his Wolf form can run faster than a bullet, his Form of Mist can become a Poison Cloud, and his Bat form can fire fireballs and also a destructive sonar. It is speculated that Alucard, like Dracula, has a "final form" that he can transform into, but he refuses to use it as he does not want to be like Dracula in any way; this is supported by the fact that at random, Alucard will turn into a massive gargoyle statue when petrified, which is impervious to damage; this may be his "final form". However, if this is true, there is no reliable way to use the form in-game.
Speed: He can run faster than a bullet both in his human and wolf form.
Summoning: Alucard can summon many creatures via Relic Cards, such as an assisting fairy, an elemental spear-wielding demon, a fireball-shooting bat, a soul-stealing ghost or a powerful sword.
Swordsman skills: Alucard mastered a variety of weapons, but none as he mastered his mother's sword. Seeing as the sword is a family heirloom, Lisa could have come from a lineage of sword masters or knights. He also inherited the Alucard Shield which improves defense against all attacks, the Alucard Mail which improves Fire, Ice and Thunder elemental defense, and the Dragon Helm which scares enemies and lowers their defenses. With the Twilight Cloak, inherited from his father, Alucard increases defense and reduces flinching.

History/Biography/Summary of the Character: In 1476 when Trevor C. Belmont was on his own quest to hunt out the Count Dracula, who had controlled his son to become evil, Alucard would be waiting for Trevor Belmont to come by. Alucard acted like a boss (not a real boss) at this point, testing the skills of the hero. Alucard was surprised by Trevor's strength when he was defeated and asked if he could join Trevor on his quest.

After helping to destroy Dracula, and despite his good intentions, Alucard couldn't help but feel guilty for patricide. To ease his pain, he put himself to rest, submerging his powers.

In 1797, due to an unexpected lack of a Belmont, Alucard had no choice but to awaken from his slumber to investigate the matter and infiltrate Castlevania. He was able to find out that Richter Belmont had been seduced by evil and was controlling the castle.

With the help of Richter's sister-in-law, Maria Renard, they were able to find out the truth: the dark priest Shaft was controlling Richter and wanted to raise Dracula from his dark slumber. After releasing Richter from Shaft's control, Alucard entered an upside-down version of Castlevania, with more powerful enemies, and confronted Shaft.

Having defeated Shaft, Alucard discovered that his efforts were in vain, as Shaft's plan had come to fruition regardless. He solely defeated his father in combat once more, and sent him back to the grave, though Dracula did show a spark of humanity after Alucard told him Lisa's last words: that mankind should be left in peace, and that she would always love him. He then planned to put himself back at rest but Maria, who had developed a strong attraction to him, eventually set out to convince him to stay.

One year after defeating his father, Alucard is accused of being evil by an incubus named Magnus. He aids Maria, Richter, Cyril, and Alexis in their fight against Magnus and his old servant Lyudmil.

Magnus reveals to Maria Alucard's history of consuming human blood. When being asked about it, he did not deny it. He even turned his former servant, Lyudmil into a vampire.

In the year 2035, a man named Genya Arikado (有角幻也) and his close associate, Yoko Belnades, a Catholic Church employee, began to frequently visit the Hakuba Shrine in Japan. Mina, the shrine caretaker's daughter, was not sure of what they were looking for, but she was always friendly to the duo. Genya, an extremely cold man with an inhumanly attractive face, was a member of a shadowy organization somehow related to national security. He and Yoko knew well about the events where the castle was sealed away in the eclipse by a group of vampire hunters, and about the prophecy that says someone would come to the castle in 2035 to inherit Dracula's powers.

In reality, Genya Arikado is Alucard himself. This is shown by the dialogue between Soma and Yoko in Study, although she doesn't intend to mention Alucard's real name. Julius Belmont was present, roaming the castle, but his amnesia and advanced age made it too risky for him to get involved in big conflicts.

Alucard knew that the power of the seal holding Dracula was wearing off. If someone with bad intentions, like Graham Jones, were to seize the opportunity and inherit that power, his father would return, reborn.

Alucard then came up with a plan. He would find the person truly prophesied to inherit the Dark Lord's powers and summon him to the castle on the day of the solar eclipse. That person turned out to be Soma Cruz. Alucard helped him to discover his natural absorbing abilities in hope that Soma would use that power to collect the enemies' souls and the castle's energy essence, becoming someone as powerful as Dracula. A self-aware absorber could use that collected power to enter into where only Dracula could go: the Chaotic Realm, where the seal remained broken, having the chance to fix it by destroying the source.

After killing Graham Jones, Soma realized that he himself was the rebirth of Dracula, so Alucard ordered him to find and cut the flow of Chaos and suppress Dracula's spirit before it could take over his body completely, resealing the castle within the eclipse, bringing his friends to safety, and ending the threat of Dracula's resurrection for the time being.

Alucard first makes his appearance as Genya Arikado to Soma Cruz in 2036 upon their encounter, as he attempts to protect him from Celia Fortner, the leader of the cult devoted to recreating the Dark Lord. After Soma defeats the monsters that Celia summoned using the Knife that Arikado throws to him and after absorbing their souls, he wonders why his "power of dominance" has returned. Arikado reveals that he has always had that power, it was just that he never had a need for it after he left Dracula's castle. After their discussion, Arikado tells Soma that he and his associates will handle Celia and asks him not to get involved.

Their next meeting is in the Demon Guest House, where Arikado angrily berates Soma for involving himself in this affair. However, he agrees to Soma's continued participation because he has already entered the castle. He asks Soma about what he has encountered so far and Soma reveals Celia's plan to slay him and replace him using the Dark Lord's candidates, Dmitrii Blinov and Dario Bossi. Arikado reveals his intention to look into the matter further and also gives Soma a letter from Mina, which contains a talisman that will protect Soma from evil energy. He then departs, in search of Celia.

When Soma first enters the Cursed Clock Tower, he runs in along with Julius Belmont to find Celia waiting for them. Celia reveals that she has fused a flame demon to Dario's soul that has drastically increased his powers. Afterwards, Celia teleports away and Arikado tells Julius to pursue Dario while he will hunt for Celia.

At one of the game's critical junctions, Arikado runs into the Garden of Madness to stop Soma from transforming into the Dark Lord after Celia killed "Mina". Due to the fact that Soma was wearing Mina's Talisman, he was able to break the transformation, much to Celia's chagrin. However, a black soul flew from Soma into the Doppelganger that was posing as the "Mina" that Celia slew. That Doppelganger became Dmitrii, who had been believed slain by Soma earlier in the game. Arikado realizes that Dmitrii has copied Soma's power of dominance, and it is the key to becoming the Dark Lord. As Arikado moves forward to confront Dmitrii, however, Dmitrii reveals that he knows Arikado's true identity as Alucard, son of Dracula (although he does not explicitly reveal this fact), and that he will kill Soma if Arikado comes forward. Dmitrii and Celia teleport away and Arikado reveals to Soma that there is a gateway to the origin of the dark energy the castle has been accessing: The Abyss underneath the castle, and this is where Dmitrii and Celia have fled.

However, in order to gain access to The Abyss, Arikado is forced to enlist the talents of Julius Belmont, who shatters the barrier dividing that area from the rest of the castle. Julius is reluctant to do so because it will drain his power and leave him unable to fight but Arikado says his power is the only way the barrier can be broken. As the barrier is broken, Arikado falls into the passageway and renews his pursuit of Dmitrii and Celia.

Arikado is standing with Dmitrii in the final, massive room of The Abyss, apparently drained. He reveals to Soma that Dmitrii's sacrifice of Celia created a reversal of his powers and canceled his attempts to assault Dmitrii. As Dmitrii prepares for the showdown of his power of dominance against Soma's, he becomes engulfed in dark energy, and Arikado realizes that since Dmitrii's soul is weaker than Soma's, he cannot retain full dominance of the souls of the monsters he gained dominance over. In his anger, Dmitrii blasts Arikado away with a spell before the creatures escape his body and converge to form the gargantuan Menace, who is Soma's final opponent.

Near the end, as numerous characters went to embrace Soma after his victory, Alucard stood alone, thinking that "If the world needs a Dark Lord, one will emerge, even if it's not Soma."

I got all three broken hero swords and the death sickle in one solar eclipse. But sadly my luck has ended, since I can't seem to get the armor bracing. THE LAST MATERIAL I NEED FOR THE ANKH SHIELD

Sometimes, a total eclipse is a good time to eye the Sun. Taking advantage of an unusual juxtaposition of Earth, Moon and Sun, the featured image depicts the total solar eclipse that occurred last month as it appeared -- nearly simultaneously -- from both Earth and space. The innermost image shows the total eclipse from the ground, with the central pupil created by the bright Sun covered by a comparatively dark Moon. Surrounding the blocked solar disk is the tenuous corona of Sun imaged in white light, easily visible from the ground only during an eclipse. Normally, this corona is hard to track far from the Sun, but the featured montage matches it to false-colored observations of the Sun from NASA and ESA's space-based, Sun-orbiting, Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO). Observations like this allow the study of the constantly changing magnetic activity both near and far from the Sun, the same activity that ultimately drives Earth's auroras.
