We saw Orion belt and M42 nebula culmination at midnight on 1st January 2018 immediately during the New Year celebrations in UK. We wanted to look at the fireworks outside in the sky but was pleasantly surprised by Orion. First seen was orion nebula as we focused more Orion became clearer because the cloud lifted the belt in full view. We called other people to come and watch it with us until it went out of view so we continued the New Year celebrations. This particularly a special moment for us because God revealed Orion to us in three previous dreams 3 times. We have see the Orion for many years as part of night sky wonders of God’s creation. God specifically already revealed Orion three times in visions and dreams already blogged about in previous post. This These dream visions of God is again repeated twice in one night on 6th January, 2018 between my sleep breaks. I woke up in the middle of the night and went to check something then went back to bed to sleep again. This same night God repeated Orion vision to me again same night. Prophetically, Jesus is the Orion expected in the sky clouds for Rapture and later the Second Coming for Armageddon. Only God knows reasons for repeating the Orion symbols in the sky. The Orionid Meteor Star Showers in annual Orionid Meteor Shower. This regular showers are derived from the celestial materials left by repeated passages of Comet Halley which runs from October 4 to November 14. It is followed by visible presence by Orion belt globally all the way from December to January 7th 2018. Those with giant Telescopes track Orion throughout the year within the 26 constellations of earth’s galaxy.Especially from early nightimes between 9pm through midnight go the early hours of the morning about 2:30 am. So many beautiful pictures are taken by various Telescopes all over the world. UW researchers are ready for the new era of unistellar Telescopes. Astronomers and Physicists reveals the Orion nebula seen here in more detail than amateur Telescopes or seen by the naked eyes. The ZTF “first light” image is shown here (inset) within the Orion constellation. The Orion nebula can be seen within the ZTF image that captured view of 247 noons within it’s range. These details are observed better directly by these Telescopes. Other larger Telescopes portray the Orion nebula seen as red spot in the sword of Orion. The red spot in Orion sword represents Biblically the birth and death of stars symbolic metaphorically of life and eternal death by judgement of Jesus Sword coming from Jesus mouth. Those who accept Jesus Christ will live eternally but those condemned are damned by hellfire.
Seeing orion after visions makes us paid more attention and take notice from the prophetic point of view. This time we observed Orion with new interest and passion seeing magnificent presence of God’s signs and wonders in the sky. It is amazing how beautiful and glorious God’s night sky is. To see Orion as the first sight during this New Year’s celebration makes it more amazing. The Almighty God reveals HIS secrets to the prophets so we trust God to understand better HIS symbolic end time messages. God uses the normal, routine and daily occurrences to communicate to people. The UMD Astronomers partner on powerful new automatic sky survey. UMD scientists will use powerful new telescope camera for research and education to bring detailed knowledge. Academic excellence is good and essential yet must not over rule God’s marvellous creations on the universe so give God the credit as patent creator and owner of the firmaments.
The world must know in Biblical terms the Orion represents Jesus with sickle coming to harvest the wheat and tares. The Orion is also called the Hunter now easy to view since 27th November 2017 depending on the visibility and location. From January 01 to January 07 2018 the sky will be filled also as follows with the largest SUPERMOON’ on January 1-2. So again on 4th January, moon and regulus will be seen. Then Orion the Hunter will be seen again on 5th January 2018. The brightest seen is the orion nebula often with the three stars above. The nebula is where stars are birthed and also die. It is marvellous to see indepth of nebula with bright multiple colours in Orion trapezium. NASA recorded years of the various aspects of Orion throughout the years. These was compiled and turned into indepth data accumulated for the Scientists and amateurs to study.
Stars trails constellation Orion through EarthSky Facebook image Jean Baptiste Feldman displayed. Can you pick three stars in Orion’s Belt? Notice different colours of stars in Orion. Beneath the sky, Orion will climb higher in the sky. When this constellation is highest in the south it is a huge noticeable star pattern clearly sesn. But Orion doesn’t reach its highest point until an hour or two after midnight that’s local time, for all times zones around the world at this time of year. Like all the stars, Orion’s stars rise some four minutes earlier with each of the passing day about two hours earlier with each passing month. If you see Orion shining in the east at 9:00 p.m. tonight, look for Orion to be in the same place in the sky at 7:00 p.m. that month. Orion due south at 1:30 a.m. and again Orion due south from 11:30 p.m. in the last month of December 2017.
The mirrow view of Orion from Hunter from Johannes Hevelius’ Uranographia (1690) This shift in Orion’s location is due to the Earth’s movement in orbit around the sun. As we move around sun perspective on stars surrounding us shifts. At the same hour daily all stars in eastern half of sky climb up a bit higher whereas all the stars in the western half of sky sink a bit closer to the western horizon. Are you familiar with the W- or M-shaped constellation Cassiopeia the Queen? Or Polaris, the North Star? As Orion rises in the east evening, look for Cassiopeia to soar to highest point for the night, above Polaris in northern sky.
Even from big cities, you can see Sirius, the sky’s brightest star. Gowrishankar Lakshminarayanan created this composite image on December 26, 2017 and wrote: “After a series of clouded night skies in New York City, we finally got a clear night though it was bitter cold and the temperature dropped to 25 F.! Here you can see the brightest star of the winter night sky Sirius and its path as it rises in the southeast sky to clip the spire of the Freedom Tower. This is a 78-image composite, spaced 30 seconds apart. I always thought that star trails within light-polluted city skies weren’t a good idea, since we hardly see any stars. Thanks to God for bright stars like Orion, Sirius and others we see a nice star trail in NYC!” If celebrating the New Year, and you happen to gaze up at the sky, look for Sirius. This star’s midnight culmination – when it’s highest in the sky at midnight We are were pleased to find this article by Bruce McClure who served as lead writer for EarthSky’s popular Tonight pages since 2004. He’s a sundial aficionado, whose love for the heavens has taken him to Lake Titicaca in Bolivia and sailing in the North Atlantic, where he earned his celestial navigation certificate through School of Ocean Sailing and Navigation. He writes and hosts public astronomy programs and planetarium programs in and around home in upstate New York. Watch again for Orion on 5th January and have a Blessed New Year. It is seen again in other parts of the globe depending on location and position of stars.
