    ameenn: Eclipse drawing from “Fourteen Weeks in Descriptive Astronomy” by J. Dorman Steele, 1873 (Barnes and Co., NY). During this eclipse, Francis Baily noticed bright flashes of light from around the limb of the moon, later named ‘Baily’s Beads’ in his honor.

    Musica universalis (universal music or music of the spheres) or Harmony of the Spheres is an ancient philosophical concept that regards proportions in the movements of celestial bodies—the Sun, Moon, and planets—as a form of musica (the Medieval Latin name for music). This 'music' is not usually thought to be literally audible, but a harmonic, mathematical, religious concept. The idea continued to appeal to thinkers about music until the end of the Renaissance, including humanists.

    Never really sure what I want for a tattoo, but I'm starting to have ideas about getting a small sun somewhere. Nothing makes me happy like a sunny day, so why not put a sun on me to remind me of what makes me happy?
