The Geminid meteors are still present even though the peak was on Dec 14th. I used a Sony color CCD camera with a 12mm lens.

2019 December 29 Cassini Spacecraft Crosses Saturn’s Ring...



2019 December 29

Cassini Spacecraft Crosses Saturn’s Ring Plane

Explanation: If this is Saturn, where are the rings? When Saturn’s “appendages” disappeared in 1612, Galileo did not understand why. Later that century, it became understood that Saturn’s unusual protrusions were rings and that when the Earth crosses the ring plane, the edge-on rings will appear to disappear. This is because Saturn’s rings are confined to a plane many times thinner, in proportion, than a razor blade. In modern times, the robot Cassini spacecraft orbiting Saturn frequently crossed Saturn’s ring plane during its mission to Saturn, from 2004 to 2017. A series of plane crossing images from 2005 February was dug out of the vast online Cassini raw image archive by interested Spanish amateur Fernando Garcia Navarro. Pictured here, digitally cropped and set in representative colors, is the striking result. Saturn’s thin ring plane appears in blue, bands and clouds in Saturn’s upper atmosphere appear in gold. Details of Saturn’s rings can be seen in the high dark shadows across the top of this image, taken back in 2005. The moons Dione and Enceladus appear as bumps in the rings.

Wemyss Caves and Pictish Symbols, Fife, Scotland, 28.12.19.

At first light this morning I paid my first visit to what may well be one of the most overlooked ancient coastal sites in the UK. Wemyss Caves contain the highest known numbers of Pictish symbols in one location in the UK. Spread across five cave systems are large numbers of animals, figures and abstract symbols. These are some of the earliest known Pictish symbols and some date back to the 5th century CE. With the help of the virtual tour site, Wemyss4D, I photographed many of the markings. However, the site is woefully neglected and endangered by vandalism, coastal erosion and poor maintenance.

Pronounced ‘Weems’, pictured markings from the caves above include: a dog or wolf, fish, a bull or cattle, a figure (possibly Thor?) with sacrificial goat and a complex symbol.

Secret passage discovered in Maya city of Uxmal


Researchers from the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) discovered a walled-up passage in the Governor’s Palace, in the Uxmal Archaeological Zone, which is 25 meters long and is estimated to date from  670 – 770 of our era, when the early Puuc (Temprano) style flourished.

They also found a Chaac mask and vestiges of three old staircases. Currently, archaeologists Jose Huchim and Lourdes Toscano direct the Uxmal Project, which consists among other things of restoration works in the palace located in the state of Yucatan.


In the building, a pair of Mayan arches corresponding to the ends of the vaulted passage were uncovered, whose temporality is at least 200 years prior to that of its superstructure. The 25-meter-long passageway not only changes the visual idea and reading of the Governor’s Palace, but also, in the words of experts, becomes one of the few monumental footprints in the city of that original architectural style.

“In Uxmal, the Puuc Temprano style (characterized by fine cuts in the limestone and austere finishes) was discovered over time by other constructions, unlike other areas of the region, such as Labna or Kabah, where it is visible,” says Toscano.

The discovery of the arches (symmetrical in their 7 metres high and 2.50 wide) clarifies two aspects: one is the aesthetic evolution that led to the Late Uxmal style (850-950 A.D.), whose maximum references are the Palace of the Governor and the Quadrangle of the Nuns; and, two, it proves that already in the eighth century “the inhabitants of Uxmal were able to erect incredibly complex buildings”.

The conjunction of the new data with those recorded in previous seasons, such as the one that in 2014 located a similar passageway in the northeast sector of the palace, “allows us to know that the building was originally divided into three segments, that were linked by these vaulted corridors to facilitate transit both in its upper part, and at the level of the Great Platform,” says the researcher.


Jose Huchim, director of the Archaeological Zone of Uxmal and the Puuc Route, says that the location of the new passage was possible thanks to decades of experience in the restoration of Puuc architecture, since, over 20 years, he formed an expert team, both in excavation and in the restitution to the building of the stones that have fallen from its structure

An important part of this work is the meticulous excavation of the collapsed parts, this “implies eliminating sediments and other expired materials until the covering stones are found”, which are studied and classified so that, by means of the anastylosis technique, they can be put back in their original place.

Huchim describes that, during the tasks of cleaning and exploration of the basement, well-placed stones were recognized that did not have the appearance of the core materials. They were carefully cleaned and identified as the cornice of a building that belonged to a previous period. After exploring the cornice, the lid of a vault was found and, as it continued to descend, the Mayan arch and the walls supporting it were completely liberated. Archaeologists noticed that in the middle moulding of the facade and the plinth of the arch, there was a need for covering stones, which were intentionally but respectfully removed when the substructure was buried.

“This fact is important, because the Mayas believed that buildings had life, so that when they ceased to be useful they were ‘killed’ through a reverential ritual. Therefore, we do not rule out that in the floors of both entrances of the corridor we find offerings that evidence these complex ceremonies“ Explained Huchim.


The Mayas, like other Mesoamerican people, did not demolish buildings when they stopped using them. “They were lineage dwellings and were used to cement other buildings or as tombs. Thanks to this custom, archaeologists can learn about the architectural traditions of a site.

On other findings recorded in the current work season, Jose Huchim mentions two vestiges: a mask of Chaac, the Mayan deity of rain, and remains of three staircases that, in another time, gave additional access to the main building of the Palace of the Governor.

“The closure of these staircases, together with data collected previously, allows us to assume that around the tenth century, when Uxmal came into conflict with Chichen Itza, it was necessary to modify the buildings, mainly restricting access as a measure to protect the sovereign of the Puuc lineage, against an invasion of the Itzaes“.

Meanwhile, Chaac’s mask was found in the southeast corner of the building visible to the public. Huchim and Toscano point out that, according to the patterns of design and the symmetry that distinguishes Mayan architecture, it can be deduced that there was a mask on that flank.


The others were found to the northwest and northeast, respectively, by archaeologists Alberto Ruz in 1949 and Ricardo Velazquez in the late 1990s.


The researchers at the INAH Yucatan Center conclude that the current field season (the second of the five contemplated by the Uxmal Project) will end in January 2020.

Subsequently, exploration will continue on two fronts: the study of the multiple occupations of Uxmal and the consolidation of the basement of the Governor’s Palace. In the future, the facade and the interior of the palace will be cleaned, maintained and conserved.
