Today in History
« on: September 23, 2014, 07:02:08 PM »
Post up you history for (each) today.

Planet Neptune Is Discovered (1846)
Neptune is notable for being the first planet to be discovered by way of mathematical prediction rather than standard observation. Galileo observed Neptune twice in the early 1600s, but he mistook the planet for a fixed star and is therefore not credited with its discovery. Centuries later, small changes in Uranus's orbit led astronomers to seek out and discover the eighth and outermost planet of our solar system. Who predicted Neptune's location in the 1840s within 1° of where it was found?

The first Supreme Court (USA) was instituted under the Judiciary Act 1789.

And:

The Prophet entered Medina at the end of his flight from Mecca (the Hegira) in 622.

On this day in 1964, had a strawberry sunday at the Dairy Queen in Quebec City, I think it was the one on Rue De Champlain but I may be mistaken. Anyway it was by a Roman Catholic church and they of course had a very graphic Crucifix outside. The strawberry syrup on the white ice cream looked just like the blood on the mortified skin of the Crucifix and it looked just like Jesus was watching me eat this ice cream sunday....

Anyway it freaked me out because I was only 6 years old at the time...

Today, in 1944, Operation Market-Garden fails as thousands of British and Polish paratroopers are killed, captured and wounded. Of more than 10,000 soldiers, only about 2,900 were able to cross the Meuse River back to Allied lines.

First Photos Taken of a Giant Squid in the Wild (2004)
In 2004, two teams of Japanese researchers traveled to a sperm whale hunting ground south of Tokyo, where they attached bait, a camera, and a flash to a 3,000-foot (914-m) line. After numerous attempts to lure their prey, a 26-foot (8-m) giant squid attacked and became entangled in the lure, breaking free after more than 500 photos were taken over a four-hour period. What did the photos—the first ever taken of a live giant squid in its natural habitat—reveal about the mysterious creature?

The sun will rise in the east and set in the west. Just the same it has for the last xxxxxxxxxxx Years.

People still think the Sun rises and sets, when it is really the Earths rotation that moves areas into and out of the Suns reach.
