    So pleased that our findings from the 6.5-yr imaging survey I conducted with Cassini’s high resolution camera of the geyser basin capping Enceladus’ southern hemisphere made the cover of the Astronomical Journal!

    How sweet it is! [Scientists love this sort of thing ;-) ]

    Hathor, Museo Egizio

    Basalt statue of the Ancient Egyptian goddess Hathor. From the New Kingdom, 18th dynasty (reign of Amenhotep III 1388-1351BC).

    The statue was commissioned by Amenhotep III to celebrate his Sed Festival. Uniquely, in this depiction she holds a was-sceptre (not shown here), a symbol of power normally associated only with male gods. The statue was brought to Turin in 1753.

    Hathor is the goddess of music, dancing, joy etc. and is often represented as a cow, hence the horns.

    Mada’in Saleh is one of the best known archaeological sites in Saudi Arabia. It was once inhabited by the Nabataeans some 2000 years ago, Petra being the capital of the Nabataean kingdom.

    Grande Loge de La République Dominicaine

    fondée en 1858.

    Freemasonry, in the Dominican Republic, had for its center the National Grand Orient, which possessed the supreme authority and which practiced the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite. The Grand Orient was divided into a National Grand Lodge, under which have been fifteen Symbolic Lodges; a sovereign Grand Chapter General, under which are all Chapters; and a Supreme Council, which controlled the Advanced Degrees of the Rite. Santo Domingo was the headquarters of Morin (see further reference to him in this work) in 1763, when he was establishing the Scottish Rite in America.

    Following the formation of the Republic of Santo Domingo in 1844, a Grand Orient was established in 1858 by Lodges originally chartered by the Grand Orient of Haiti. A Grand Lodge was organized in 1865 and later in that year there came into being a Supreme Council, the two uniting as a National Grand Orient on January 1, 1866.
