About the discovery of Neptune
About discovery of Neptune
1) Upon receiving data on where the new planet should be, they (according to the account) went straight upstairs to look at the sky, and found it right away (w/a telescope). Now, that means it had to be late enough for the sky to be fully dark
~ I didn't know this Diana, can you mention or reference a source?
No, don't remember, sorry.
- what time would
that be at the Autumn Equinox in Berlin? Anyone know that?
Sunset for this year, September 23rd, Solar Fire calculates at 5:57 pm LMT,
7:04 pm visual in CEDT. At sunset the Moon is transiting a solstice degree of Saturn, Neptune.
That matches the time calculations for this site:
Date, sunrise, sunset, length of day, etc...

I would think, two hours of twilight, at least, for the deep sky to shine?
I am wondering that Pisces at the midheaven, Cancer rising, with Neptune and Saturn in the 9th house could be appropriate, perhaps the angles holding a grand trine with Scorpio Moon. Mars, at apex of the yod with Saturn/Neptune and Pluto, could well be in the fourth house at discovery. Maybe Venus at the IC?
"The discovery of Neptune was extremely important because it was the first planet detected by combining the science of astronomy and the discipline of mathematics."
10:00 pm LMT shows a strong interception of Gemini/Sag in the 12th/6th houses with Jupiter in the twelfth, whereas 10:30 pm or thereabouts intercepts the Moon in the fifth house (porphyry houses).
This earlier timing seems well, to me. What timing do you think?
Thank you, Sherri - no time to check it out now, but it's great to have
the sunset and sunrise times etc!
