What is Copyright Protection? Convertisseur d'une date du calendrier Hégire Arabe en date du calendrier Grégorien Ce calendrier a été proposé par le Pape Grégorien XIII (en 1582 Ap.J.-C.). Dans ce calendrier a été traité le problème de l'avance de l'année Julienne (365,25 jours) sur la vraie année solaire (365,242199 jours) ; la modification essentielle par rapport au calendrier julien fut la suppression de certaines années bissextiles, alors au lieu d'avoir 25 années bissextiles par siècle, il faut avoir seulement 24 années bissextiles. La formule proposée dans cette réforme est basée sur la suppression de trois années bissextiles tous les 400 ans du calendrier julien. Le résultat de cette réforme c'est que les années divisibles par (4) sont toujours bissextiles, mais les années des débuts des siècles (les années séculaires) doivent être divisibles aussi sur 400 pour qu'elles soient bissextiles (exemple : pour les années 1700, 1800, 1900 et 2000, il n'y a que l'année 2000 qui est bissextile).

Guide to planting by the moon - The Gardeners Calendar Moon planting calendar for fruit, vegetables and flowers In ancient times when man had not quite got round to inventing the wristwatch, the most reliable source of telling the time was the sun, moon, and stars. There seems to be several opinions of who came up with the moon planting calendar first. Was it the Egyptians or the Babylonians? It was noticed that different plants grow better when they are planted during different phases of the moon. To provide more accurate records it was noted that certain crops faired better when planted whilst the moon was in a specific constellation. Planting was not the most important time for the farmer, harvest time also had to be recorded.

5 things about Friday's space events By Elizabeth Landau, CNN About 1,000 people have been injured in Russia as the result of a meteor exploding in the air. The energy of the detonation appears to be equivalent to about 300 kilotons of TNT, said Margaret Campbell-Brown of the department of physics and astronomy at the University of Western Ontario. Meanwhile, an asteroid approached Earth but did not hit it Friday, coming closest at about 2:25 p.m. ET. You probably have some questions about both of those events, so here's a brief overview: 1. The meteor in Russia and the asteroid that passed by on Friday afternoon are "completely unrelated," according to NASA. Estimates on the meteor's size are preliminary, but it appeared to be about one-third the size of 2012 DA14. The term "asteroid" can also be used to describe the rock that exploded over Russia, according to the European Space Agency and NASA, although it was a relatively small one. 2. According to NASA, here’s how you tell what kind of object is falling from the sky: 3. 4.

How to Forecast Weather | Ever wondered how to forecast the weather without actually using instruments? Check the Clouds: Clouds can tell us a lot about the weather. For example, they can tell us if it’s going to be warmer on a particular night by simply being there. Check the Humidity: If you’re one of those people whose hair gets all curly when it gets really humid out, you know exactly what this is about. Check the Animals: Birds only fly in the sky when they expect fair weather ahead. Look at the Rainbow (but only in the west) and look for a Red Sky: If you see one in the west, it means a major storm front is coming. Check the Air: If it smells like a compost heap, expect some rain soon. Check the Moon: Seen any red moons lately? Check the Wind: If you can tell which way the wind is blowing, you can tell if there is a storm approaching. A Few More Ideas: Make a campfire – If the smoke goes straight up, clear skies ahead. Check the grass – if it’s wet and dewy, that means it probably won’t rain.

Orbiting Earth 101: What You’d See / What You’d Do “I saw for the first time the earth’s shape. I could easily see the shores of continents, islands, great rivers, folds of the terrain, large bodies of water. The horizon is dark blue, smoothly turning to black. . . the feelings which filled me I can express with one word–joy.” -Yuri Gagarin It takes a tremendous amount of energy to do any type of heavy lifting, and the most extreme example of this is lifting something all the way up off of the Earth, out of the atmosphere, and into space! And once you’re up there, at least 300 km above the Earth’s surface, the sights you’ve got are bound to be absolutely amazing! But gravity is a funny thing. But while the Moon is 384,000 km away from the center of the Earth and takes about four weeks to orbit the Earth, these man-made satellites and space vehicles, at an altitude of around 300 km, are only 6,700 km away from the center of the Earth.

The Asteroid That Is Coming Really Close To Earth In February, Asteroid 2012 DA 14 will come so close to earth that it will be nearer to our planet than many satellites are. This asteroid, which really should get a new name, is about half the size of a football field. Its orbit is similar to that of the Earth itself, in size and shape, but at an angle to the Earth’s plane, so it’s like the asteroid and the earth are driving in circles on two oval tracks that intersect at two points but there is no red light. Asteroid 2012 DA 14 was discovered with gear provided to an observatory with a grant from the Planetary Society. Which makes me want to join the Planetary Society. This asteroid is not going to hit the earth now or during any of the next few decades, but eventually it may well do so. The closest approach will be on Feb 15th, when it will be a mere 27,330 kilometers from the surface of the earth.

WunderMap Interactive Radar & Weather Stations Fire Danger Rating Low Fuels do not ignite readily from small firebrands although a more intense heat source, such as lightning, may start fires in duff or punky wood. Fires in open cured grasslands may bum freely a few hours after rain, but woods fires spread slowly by creeping or smoldering, and burn in irregular fingers. There is little danger of spotting. Moderate Fires can start from most accidental causes, but with the exception of lightning fires in some areas, the number of starts is generally low. High All fine dead fuels ignite readily and fires start easily from most causes. Very High Fires start easily from all causes and, immediately after ignition, spread rapidly and increase quickly in intensity. Extreme Fires start quickly, spread furiously, and burn intensely. Keetch-Byram Drought Index Soil moisture and large class fuel moistures are high and do not contribute much to fire intensity.
