Jupiter Conjunction with Moon Sunday night, april 17. 2016
"Sunday evening will feature another neat event. The Moon and Jupiter will be nearly side by side."
"Usually the waxing gibbous moon washes out most of the night sky. But, Jupiter is so bright you won't miss it." * Read more info about the celestial event, below the page, in the category "Did you know".

A very small half of moon behind the clouds...and a silhouette of plane up in the sky at afternoon. O foarte mică jumătate de lună în spatele norilor ... și o siluetă de avion pe cer, la amiază.

Nourii de Nicolae Labiș

"Privesc grăbiţii nouri ce-alunecă pe zări,
Topindu-se departe şi revenind întruna.
Parcă-mi trimit tăcute, nostalgice chemări,
Ei, fraţii cu dreptatea, cu ziua şi cu luna.

Oceane mari de apă pe-a cerului genuni
Câteodată-s limpezi ca lacrima pe-o pleoapă,
Revarsă altădată şi trăsnet şi furtuni -
Rămân aceleaşi totuşi oceane mari de apă.

Ce chipuri prinde-n slavă al norilor convoi!
Centauri, turme, nave, creneluri de redută...
Noi îi urâm când grindini revarsă peste noi,
Noi îi iubim, cu stropii lor calzi, când ne sărută."


The clouds of Nicolae Labis

"I look at  the hasty clouds that slips on sight,
That melts away and still returning back.
It would seem that they send silent nostalgic calls,
They, brothers with justice, with the day and with the moon."*
*Excerpts of the poem above: (an imperfect translation).

"Jupiter Conjunction with Moon Sunday night
Sunday evening will feature another neat event. The Moon and Jupiter will be nearly side by side."
"Usually the waxing gibbous moon washes out most of the night sky. But, Jupiter is so bright you won't miss it."

Lyrids Meteor Shower next week
Next week will be fun for sky watching was well. We will be approaching the peak of the Lyrids meteor shower. This is the first significant meteor shower since the Quadrantids in January.
The shower peaks in the few nights around the 22-23rd.*

"... the constellation Leo the Lion, which is currently high in the evening sky of spring. You can't miss Leo since the bright "star" Jupiter is currently in this part of the sky in 2016, underneath the Lion. The waxing Moon is moving through the evening sky week, and will pass Leo's brightest star Regulus on Saturday, April 16, and will pass Jupiter the next night, Sunday, April 17." Source : www.ClassicalAstronomy.com on Fb, courtesy  accuweather.com


"If your sky is clear early Sunday evening (April 17), be sure to look up to the southeast about an hour or so after sundown for a stunning cosmic duet. There, more than halfway up in the southeast sky you'll find an eye-catching sight: You'll immediately see the moon, which will be at its waxing gibbous phase, 85 percent illuminated, en route to becoming full during the overnight hours late Thursday night (April 21) to early Friday morning (April 22).

But on this particular Sunday evening, you'll also notice a very bright, silvery "star" shining with a steady glow to the left or upper left of the moon. That's not a star: it's the biggest planet in our solar system, Jupiter. Moon and planet will keep each other company as they move across the night sky through the course of the night."
"Jupiter is ideally placed for evening viewing, shining high and free of trees and other obstructions, and where even the distorting effect of the atmosphere is at its least. Jupiter currently shines in the constellation Leo. It reaches its highest point in the sky — transiting the meridian, as the astronomers would say — soon after 10 p.m. local time, and it sets during the predawn hours, around 4:40 a.m. "
"Finally, if clouds hide your view of the moon and Jupiter on Sunday, don't fret. They'll be together again on May 14."

Flowers and heart-shaped leaves of S. vulgaris

"The Oleaceae are a family of flowering plants in the order Lamiales. Notable members of the Oleaceae include olive, ash, jasmine, and several popular ornamental plants including privet, forsythia, fringetrees, and lilac."
"Syringa vulgaris (lilac or common lilac) is a species of flowering plant in the olive family Oleaceae, native to the Balkan Peninsula, where it grows on rocky hills.This species is widely cultivated as an ornamental and has been naturalized in other parts of Europe (UK, France, Germany, Italy, etc.), as well as much of North America. It is not regarded as an aggressive species, found in the wild in widely scattered sites, usually in the vicinity of past or present human habitations."
Description

"The leaves are simple, 4–12 cm (2–5 in) and 3–8 cm broad, light green to glaucous, oval to cordate, with pinnate leaf venation, a mucronate apex, and an entire margin. They are arranged in opposite pairs or occasionally in whorls of three. The flowers have a tubular base to the corolla 6–10 mm long with an open four-lobed apex 5–8 mm across, usually lilac to mauve, occasionally white. They are arranged in dense, terminal panicles 8–18 cm (3–7 in) long. "

"Liliacul sau Syringa vulgaris face parte din familia oleaceelor şi este o specie din genul Syringa care înfloreşte primăvara.

****

"Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.*"
