Since the 1976 publication of his first version of The American Ephemeris, 1931-1980, Neil F. Michelsen's ground-breaking series of ephemerides have consistently set standards for accuracy in astrology, becoming indispensable to astrologers worldwide at every level from student to professional. The tradition continues with this Revised & Expanded Third Edition of The American Ephemeris for the 21st Century, 2000-2050 at Noon. Revisions and additions are programmed by Rique Pottenger, who became head programmer for ACS Publications after Michelsen's passing. Additions and improvements include new Jet Propulsion Laboratory data and programming refinements that enable finding double ingresses in a single day plus more accurate station times. A new formula increases the accuracy of the Galactic Center. Phenomena in the Astro Data section are now sorted by time as well as by date, and R appears with Planetary Ingress Data if a planet is retrograde when it ingresses. The most notably obvious additions in this new edition include the dwarf planet Ceres in daily longitude listings between Mars and Jupiter, and monthly positions are given for Eris, Chiron, Pallas, Juno and Vesta.

The American Ephemeris 1950-2050 at Midnight, The Trans-Century Edition, is published in response to multiple requests for a one hundred year ephemeris covering these "most useful years." With the years 1950 through 2050, only one ephemeris needs to be at hand, especially when traveling, for an astrologer to do quick lookups of both birth data and transiting data over the expected life span of most people currently living. Since the 1976 publication of the first version of The American Ephemeris, 1931-1980, Neil F. Michelsen's ground-breaking series of ephemerides for astrologers have consistently set standards for accuracy in astrology, becoming indispensible to astrologers worldwide at every level from student to professional. The tradition continues with the addition of this new tropical ephemeris spanning from mid 20th century through mid 21st century. Rique Pottenger has revised and expanded the Michelsen programming with updated Jet Propulsion Laboratory data and improvements in the computer generating program that, for example, enable finding double ingresses in a single day, plus more accurate station times. A new formula increases the accuracy of the Galactic Center calculation. Other new features have been added, the most obvious of which are the dwarf planets Ceres and Eris, in response to the 2006 decisions of the International Astronomical Union. Monthly positions have also been added for the remaining three of the former four major asteroids in wide use among astrologers, Pallas, Juno and Vesta, and also for the centaur, Chiron.

The Michelsen Book of Tables combines two prior books, The American Book of Tables and The Koch Book of Tables, into one volume that contains tables for both Placidus and Koch house systems, Tables of Diurnal Motion to minimize math calculations, Time Zones of the World (names and hours from Greenwich), Solar-Sidereal Time Correction, Time Correction for Longitude log tables, Universal to Ephemeris Time Correction (Delta T), various interpolation tables and more. Also included is an extensive list of major USA and international cities with longitudes and latitudes, such that with this book and your ephemeris you can calculate precise planetary positions and correct house cusps for a great many locations. Add The American Atlas or The International Atlas plus your American Ephemeris or New American Ephemeris for the years needed, and you're equipped to do accurate charts for anywhere in the world. A special bonus section "How to Cast a Natal Horoscope," by Rob Hand and Joshua Brackett, offers complete step-by-step instructions on erecting a horoscope, painlessly and accurately, plus explanations of tables and of the Koch and Placidus house systems and how each is derived. An understanding of horoscope calculation is highly useful even for those who use computer software to produce charts because one is then aware when a chart is wrong though that occasional error in data entry. Also, chart calculation is an essential skill for those seeking professional certification in astrology.

Introducing planetary photometry as a quantitative remote sensing tool, this handbook demonstrates how reflected light can be measured and used to investigate the physical properties of bodies in our Solar System. The author explains how data gathered from telescopes and spacecraft are processed and used to infer properties such as the size, shape, albedo, and composition of celestial objects including planets, moons, asteroids, and comets. Beginning with an overview of the history and background theory of photometry, later chapters delve into the physical principles behind commonly used photometric models and the mechanics of observation, data reduction, and analysis. Real-world examples, problems, and case studies are included, all at an introductory level suitable for new graduate students, planetary scientists, amateur astronomers and researchers looking for an overview of this field.

New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly writes novels of brilliantly original suspense. In this electrifying tour de force, he takes us into a world of extremes: too much criminality, too much money, and too many ways to die. In L.A. Cassie Black is another beautiful woman in a Porsche: except Cassie just did six years in prison and still has "outlaw juice" flowing in her veins. Now Cassie is returning to her old profession, taking down a money man in Vegas. But the perfect heist goes very wrong, and suddenly Cassie is on the run--with a near-psychotic Vegas "fixer" killing everyone who knew about the job. Between Cassie and the man hunting her are a few last secrets: like who really set up the job, why Cassie had to take the change, and how, in the end, it might all be a matter of the moon...

The mystery and the appeal of a tarot deck have fascinated people for centuries. In this book, accomplished tarot scholar Marcia Masino reveals her insights into the rich symbolism and the meanings of the cards, while also offering solid instruction in all aspects of tarot reading and practice. Her clear and easy-to-follow style of instruction involves the reader immeditately, and encourages the blending of thinking and intuition. She follows each section with quizzes for self-testing of comprehension, involving each reader in the process, right from the beginning, and this is a good reason why this book on tarot, first published in 1987, has remained consistently popular through numerous printings. Now, in this Expanded New Edition, Marcia has substantially added to her very valuable question and answer section that addresses the many questions she has received from students over the years. She also presents an entirely new and unique chapter blending tarot with yoga, with instructions for twenty-two Meditation Postures created by her friend Carolyn Olive, each posture corresponding to a Major Arcana card. Marcia then interprets each posture for how one can utilize it to awaken its archetypal energy for soul purpose and gifts of the spirit. Within this book, you have a wealth of information on all aspects of tarot, taught in a manner that is easy to assimilate, just as its title promises!
