Moons Conspicuous in S!y During September By ROBERT H. BAKER. (Professor of Astronomy, University of Illinois) s ' . Jupiter, largest of the planets, will be a conspicuous object during .September, rising at nightfall above the eastern horizon. It appears as a brilliant yellow star, so much brighter than -any of the real stars that it is easy to find. Only a small telescope - is re quired to show the banded disk of this great ; planet and its four brightest moons, three of which are larger than our own moon. Jupiter has nine satellites revolving around it. Five of them may be viewed only through -powerful" telescopes. 400 MILLION MILES AWAY. Jupiter is how 400 million miles away. Having a diameter 01 ss, 000: miles, it -outbulks-" ana outv weighs all the rest of the planets put together. Like the other planets it shines entirely by reflected sunlight. The surface which , we see with the telescope is gaseous, spun out into -brignt and dark cloud-bands by the planet's rapid rotation. What lies underneath the cloudy cohering no one knows. Other1 interesting sights are dis played in the eastern sky in . the Uearly evening during September. Not far above. Jupiter we have the familiar square of Pegasuslp.pd on. one corner." If this square ts imagined to be the bowl of a dipper, the handle is "found" extending northward. ' The middle of the handle, with the stars around itformstriecon- stellation Andromeda, the "chained princess who, according to myth ology, was left on a rock to be de voured by a sea monster. . The star which marks the end of the handle of this dipper is the brightest star of Perseus, the hero of the same story. Perseus comes flying into the scene carrying In one hand the head of the demon Medusa, which he points toward the monster, at once turnlng4t to stone. Perseus looks not at all like a hero, but like a starry arrow pointing upward alnnir the Milky Way. STAR Til. VI WINKS. Medusa's head is marked by the Demon Star, Algol, the star that winks. At regular intervals of 09 hours this famous star is reduced to one-third .of its usual brightness: The reason is now known, namely that a fainter companion revolves around the brighter writ and partially eclipses it periodically. The Great Nebula in Andromeda is visible to .the unaided eye on a clear moonless night as a small, faint, foggy patch. Actually it is a huge spiral structure of millions of stars. With the aid of the accompanying .picture a keen eye should be able to detect it in the' sky. ... - ' The Andromeda Nebula is the most distant object which it is possible to see without the aid of a telescope. It is far beyond the Milky Way, so remote in fact, that its light.'required 950,000 years to reach us, travelling all that time at the frrate of .186,000 second." TRESNO, Sept. , 1. CW With I'the arrival here tonight of the body of . General .Antraanik Ouzanian, 61, national . Armenian war hero, who died yesterday at Richardson Hot Springs, plans are being. made by local Armenian residents for' one of the largest funerals in the history of Fresno in his honor. Coming to the United States in 1920 as minister from Armenia for the purpose of urging. Armenians in this country to give financial and moral support to their home land, he later made his home in Fresno. He left last February, going to San Francisco for his health; Ouzanian, better known as General Antranlk; was Armenia's'great national military hero. Early in the World War he was commander-in-chief of the allied forces in the Far East relinquishing ..the command to General Allenby of the English forces. He command ed the army of Armenians in the war, and engaged in many colorful campaigns against the Turks. He was born in the province of Slvas, Armenia. Ouzanian took up a military life in 1914 during the period of unrest which prevailed in the Near East. Receiving word that 800,000 soldiers, under Russian command, would concentrate on.the Turkish front, he . recruited an army of fifteen thousand Armenians. He was made a major general in --the Russian army, and served with dig? tinction during the World war, C. OF C.
