Another large item added to the Eiffel Tower was a large chandelier, which was added onto the bottom of the first floor in 1937 for the Arts and Techniques Exhibit, which contained ten kilometers of fluorescent tubes. Much later in 1978, 30,000 lights were installed on the Eiffel Tower, and 11 years later was the 100th year anniversary of the Eiffel Tower in 1989. In only 11 years the Eiffel Tower would be entering the new millennium. On December 31, 1999 Instead of watching the ball drop, France had a spectacular light show at the Eiffel Tower
Light and Colour- Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night The Starry Night is an oil on canvas painting by the Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. Painted in June 1889, it depicts the view (with the notable addition of an idealised village) from the east-facing window of his asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, just before sunrise. The dominating colour palette in the painting is dark blue and black hues oppose the bright whites and the yellows in the sky. The size of the painting is 29 in. by 36 ¼ in.
The artist painted during different times of the day. The reason for doing this is to show the different types of light. This painting was done on afternoon.

Emma Lang Mr. Miller Class #2 Rosetta Mission Research Paper 2/19/18 Rosetta Mission Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel 4 billion miles into space in a different atmosphere to discover a dark and dusty comet? The mission of comet 67P/C-G was to accompany it into the solar system, they did this by deploying the philae lander with the help of NASA and making this the first controlled comet. This mission helped scientists begin to understand the changes in the season as the comet left the inner solar system on its outbound leg. The history, current perceptions, and future implications of the Rosetta Mission all help scientists with the understanding of the origins of solar system life and earth. The journey of the
Its swirling, flowing lines appear to be swishing across the background in this gentle, wavy motion and seem to be merging at the centre to form this spiral-like formation. Eleven fiery yellow stars that look like huge fireballs illuminate this whole piece and contrast with the cool blue, fluid night sky that takes on an amazing variety of shades of blue and grey. There is also the crescent moon at the top right hand corner that radiates a more orange, brighter light from the rest of the stars. The view of the night sky and village is partially blocked by this huge cypress bush in the foreground. It has this writhing quality to it and its black green colouring stands out to the rest of the relatively pastel piece.
“There are many fine models available for the casual observer that balance power, portability, and price” (Equipment Tips). While a telescope requires the most knowledge in order to operate, it is a useful piece of equipment that when used properly is able to provide a stargazer with an incredible view of the night sky. While stargazing might seem to be an intimidating hobby, with some
Additionally, amateur astronomers monitor a range of celestial objects and phenomena occasionally with apparatus that they put together themselves. Ordinary targets of amateur astronomers consist of the Moon, planets, stars, comets, meteor showers, and a selection of deep-sky objects such as star clusters, galaxies, and nebulae. Astronomy organizations are situated all through the world and many have plans to set up and complete observational programs. One division of amateur astronomy, amateur astrophotography, involves the photography of the night sky. Most amateurs give effort at observable wavelengths, but a small minority experimentation with wavelengths exterior to the visible band.
In the 1820’s the original idea for photography was created by using light to record an image of something onto a light sensitive material. The next advance in photography was the camera obscura. This was basically a very dark room with a hole in one wall to let light in and project an image from the outside onto the wall opposite the hole. Later, a man named Joseph Niépce invented heliography which was the first real camera. After eight hours of exposure, the first photograph was taken by Niépce from his apartment window.
Many people credit the title of the very first astronomer to have been the tribesman, who were just studying the stars to try to make the most accurate calendar that they could. Obviously, we have progressed much past then, but none of it would have happened if it weren't for some key astronomers, and their crucial discoveries. It all started with Aristarchus who was the very first astronomer to hypothesize that the earth was, in fact, the center of the universe. According to him, the sun was, and the earth and everything else revolved around it. Everyone disagreed, but he was, in the end, correct.
I have had passion in space engineering since I was a child. I spent my childhood gazing at stars in the night sky. I felt much happier when there were comets and extra-terrestrial bodies passing by. I always wondered what was beyond Earth and how would it be. When I was 10 years old, I got to knew about Kalpana Chawla who lost her life in Columbia disaster.
