Or so it must seem to those who spent decades designing and building the exquisite instruments needed to sense the minuscule ripples in spacetime that Albert Einstein foresaw in his 1905 theory of general relativity. The first gravitational wave bagged by physicists reached Earth on 14 September 2015 and sent a quiver through the US-based Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (Ligo). The second hit three months later, on Boxing Day, followed by a third in January this year. Career horoscope: What does Jupiter and Saturn conjunction mean for your career?

I use the word “about” because both planets have rather eccentric orbits. Pluto’s is 0.248, Saturn’s is 0.056, compared to the Earth at 0.017. In the 1850’sand 1860’s, Pluto moved relative to the Earth at a much slower speed than it did in the 1980’s, when it was at perihelion, or closest to the Sun. The dynamic impact point of this cycle can last for about two months. When Saturn and Pluto travel together, their influence can often work so as to bring about the catabolic destruction of all structures of government, statehood, and styles and customs . These two planets are karmic in nature.

The WGSN consists of an international group of astronomers who catalogue and standardise names for stars to be used by the international astronomical community and others. Last year, the WGSN approved the names for 227 stars. Exoplanets are planets around stars other than our Sun, thousands of which have been discovered in recent years. More information Links Contacts.
