ISefere the Star Club.
The exterior planets are se-called be
cause they revolve above the sun in orbits
exterior te that of the Earth. They are
sometimes called superior planets for
the same reason. At present the heavens
present a fine opportunity for the study of
these brilliant orbs. In the early part of
the evening three most prominent of the
superior planets may be seen following
each ether through the heavens, with Ju
piter in the lead, Saturn with his rings
close upon him, while burning Mars brings
up the rear. "What a grand opportunity
for the astronomer ! If he tires of Jupiter
and his moons, that are ever changing in
position, with their transits across
the disk of the planet and their
constantly recurring eclipses, he
can direct his instrument te Saturn
with his rings and satellites, or view the
landscapes of Mais.
Mars was named after one of the ancient
deities who was the god of war. Ne doubt
the astronomer gave the planet this name
from its ruddy appearance. The Jews
gave it the name of " blazing " from its
red color. Mars docs net always appear te
us of the same size ; at conjunction it is
much smaller than when in opposition ;
this is owing te the difference in the plan
et's distance from us. "When at the point
nearest te us in its orbit its diameter is
mere than seven times greater than when
at its most distant point.
It revolves around the sun
distance of 140,000,000 miles.
like these of all the planets, as
demonstrated, is in the form of an ellipse.
and in censeqquence thereof the planet is
nearer the sun in some parts of its orbit
than in ethers. The orbit of Mars is flat
tened out considerably, and it has been
estimated that its perihelion distance is
twenty-six million miles nearer the sun
than its aphelion distance. The Earth's
orbit varies only three million miles, thus
making the variation of the orbit of Mars
about nine times as great as that of the
Earth. Mars was the planet upon which
Kepler decided te make his observations
en the motion and orbits of the planets.
Finally, after experimenting and watching
the planet for seventeen long years, he an
nounced his grand discovery, the three
great laws of motion.
Mars sweeps around the sun in its orbit
with an average velocity of fifteen miles
per second, which is three miles less per
second than the rate at which wc, upon the
Earth, are hurried through space. It
makes a revolution en its axis in 24 hours
and 40 minutes. This makes the Martial
day but forty minutes longer than our own,
and since its year contains CCS day?, this
would be equal te G87 terrcstial days, or
nearly two of our years.
The diameter of Mars is about 5,000
miles and the circumference, as a matter of
course, is 13,708 miles. The volume of
Mars has been estimated te be one-fourth
that of the Earth, aud its density only
one-half; hence its mass or weight is only
one-eighth as great as that of the Earth's,
or 758 quintillions of tens.
The light and heat of the Sun at this
planet is less than one-fourth that which
we enjoy, being twice our distance from
the Sun. Its axis is inclined 28. 703 te the
place of its orbit ; therefore seasons can
net differ very much from ours, as the
Earth's axis is inclined 23 degrees. Its
days are nearly equal te ours, but there
must be a greater change in the length of
night and day in the different seasons of
the year, owing te its greater angle of in
clination. The seasons of Mars must be
about twice as long as ours, because the
year is equal te two terrcstial years,
Shadows or dark bodies are efteen seen
passing ever its surface. Iheseare sup
posed te be clouds passing through the at
mosphere. Until quite recently Mars was supposed
te be without moons, but in August, 1877,
Prof. Hall, of the naval observatory at
Washington, discovered two satellites re
volving around the planet ; the outer one,
at a distance of about 12,000 miles, making
its revolution in thirty hours and eighteen
minutes, traveling almost as rapidly as the
planet en its axis, se that when once in
sight te an inhabitant en the planet it
could be seen for a lenjr time before it sets.
The ether is but 3, GOO miles from the sur
face of the planet. This is only COO miles
farther than the distance from New Yerk
te San Francisce. There is one peculiarity
about this satellite. As it passes round
the planet, in 7 hours and 40 minutes, it
will be seen that it travels faster than Mars
rotates en its axis, and in it course
overtakes an object en the planet,
and since it travels iu the same
direction, it passes by the object and
sinks out of sight in the east, and rises in
the west. This rapid motion of the moon
causes also, te the inhabitant of Mars, an
apparent motion of two moons in opposite
directions. As we leek at Mars in the
heavens he appears te us only as a red
star ; but under the telescope he presents
a novel appearance, and astronomers claim
that they have discovered land and water,
and also " ice-caps " at the poles, which
are supposed, like our own polar regions,
te be covered with perpetual snow. These
spots grew larger and become smaller, de
creasing with the return el" summer and
increasing with the return of winter. Il
lustrated by maps and diagrams.
We all knew that there is three times
as much water as land surface en our
glebe ; en Mars this order is reversed and
there is three times as much land as water.
Prof. Procter says the elder a planet gets
the less water will be visible, that tt Jfenly double the
puaaca uikw mu uuuj ui lue uiaiiet ; illlJJ :as
proof of this he cites Mercury and. H enus,
which are supposed te have" very little
Mars, like the-"iarth, is net a perfect
sphere, butris' somewhat flattend at the
peles,,"ciuscd no doubt by its rapid revolu
tion en its axis, which tends te bulge it
out along the line of the equator. It has
slight phases which proves that the
planet like the Earth is an opaque body,
and shines with borrowed light. The
gibbous phase of the planet and its appar
ent retrograde motion wcie illustrated by
Passing outward from the Sun, the next
planet in our course is Jupiter, named
after the king of the gods. Jupiter is the
largest planet of the solar system. lie
can easily be distinguished from the ether
planets and the fixed stars around, from
his great brilliancy. This was one of the
earliest discovered planets, and was cre
dited by the anc:eats with extraordinary
power and influence in mundane affairs.
The average distance of Jupiter from
the Sun is 475,000,000. The orbit of this
planet has much less eccentricity than
these of the planets nearer the Sun ; a wise
prevision of nature, because if his orbit
were less circular, the influence of the Sun
would be insufficient te held him in it. If
we leek at Jupiter we find that he changes
his place but little with reference te the
fixed stars. We observe that ether planets
move ever the surface of the heavens,
overtake Jupiter and pass him by, while
he apparently moves slowly along. Yet
he gees at the rate of 500 miles a minute
or from Philadelphia te Pittsburgh and
back again in less than a minute ; his year
is equal te twelve of our years, and he
passes tlneugh one sign of the zodiac each
year. While he moves slowly iu his orbit
en his axis he revolves very rapidly, com
pleting a revolution in ten Hours, any
object en the equator revolving with
a velocity of 4G7 miles per minute against
the Earth's seventeen miles per minute.
This must produce a powerful centrifugal
force, which must greatly diminish the
weight of a body en the surface near the
The diameter of Jupiter is about 88,000
miles, or one-tenth of the Sun's diameter.
Its volume is one thousand four hundred
times as great as the Earth's, and much
greater than all the ether planets put te
gether. If it should take the place of the
Moen in the heavens, it would appear te
us one thousand two hundred times as
large as our full moon, giving us light
enough te dispense with gas during full
moon. Its density is only one-fourth that
of the Earth.
The equatorial diameter exceeds its
polar diameter by about 5,000 miles, which
is equal te the diameter of Mars. This is
caused by its rapid motion en its axis,
which must have continued since the crea
tien of the planet.
As the inclination of the axis of Jupiter
is slight, it fellows that days and nights
aie almost equal length throughent the
year five hours from sunrise te sunset.
With se little inclination of the axis there
can be little change of seasons there must
be perpetual summer at the equator, con
tinueus springs iu the temperate zones,
and winter reigns supreme in the polar re
gions. The heat aud light of Jupiter are only
ene-twenty-seveuth of that which we re
ceive ; se that unless taere is some ether
means unknown te us, compensating for
the less of heat and light, it would net be
a very inviting place of residence for man.
But if the Jovian citizen does net enjoy our
bright and genial sunshine he can beast of
a magnificent night. In five hours he can
see all the constellations that pass ever our
heads during the night, besides witnessing
four moons with their divers phases in dif-
lerent parts et the heavens. These moons
were fiist discovered by Galilee in the year
tutu tnreugn the telescope, although there
arc instances en record where they have
been seen with the naked eye. They re
volve at the following distances from Ju
piter : Ne. 1270,000 miles ; Ne. 2423,
000 miles ; Ne. 3 G78.000 miles, and Ne.
41,200,000 miles. The diameter of the
smallest is 2,100 miles and of the largest
3,300 miles. Illustrated by a diagram
showing the eclipses, occultatiens and tran
sits of the moons. They must revolve
with great rapidity te overcome the attrac
tion of Jupiter upon them, otherwise they
would be drawn in te the planet. The
nearest moon gees through all its phases
in one and three-fourth days, and the most
distant in less than twenty days. If Jupi
ter is inhabited, its citizens can witness
during a Jovian year 4,300 lunar eclipses
and about the same number of solar
Velocity or Light Discovered.
There is a circumstance worth mention
ing in connection with the moons of Jupi
ter. It was observed that the eclipses of
Jupiter's satellites, which occurred while
the Earth and planet were at their least
distance from each ether, always came en
sooner than the time predicted by the
tables ; while en the contrary, these these
wnicli took place when the planets were
most remote from each ether occurred
later than the computed time. Kejmer,
a Danish astronomer, finally solved the
problem ; he found that these irregulari
ties arose from the fact that light traveled
through space with a finite and measur
able velocity. When Jupiter and the
Earth are at their least distance from each
ether, the stream of light flowing from
the satellite of the planet fraverses a
shorter space te reach the eye of the
observer en the Earth by nearly 200,000,
000 of miles than when the planets are
mere remote from each ether. In case
this stream of light is in any way cut off,
it will run out sooner in the first than in
the second position, by the time required
te pass ever the diameter of the Earth's
orbit. The stream of light is actually
shorter by 200,000,000 miles in the first
than in the second position. New, the
statellitcs of Jupiter receive their
light from the Sun ; they reflect
this light te the Earth, and
when Jupiter is interposed between them
and their source of light, they are eclipsed
tncir light is cut oft. And when the
stream of light starting from them, at the
instant the supply is cut off, shall have
run out, then and net till then does the
satellite become invisible. By this means
light was found te travel the entire diam
eter of the earth's orbit or 190,000,000
miles in about 1G minutes, giving a veloc
ity of 12,000,000 per minute.
The telescope reveals te the observer a
number of belts upon the surface of Jupi
ter of different colors, constantly varying
in size, but all seeming te take a parallel
course across the equatorial regions. Di
agram. The dark belts are supposed by
some te be large masses of clouds, and the
bright belts are mere fissures, laying bare
the surface below ; and the parallel ap
pearance of the belts is supposed te be
caused by equatorial winds, similar te our
trade winds. Seme two years age a large
red spot was noticed en Jupiter, which
has been gradually increasing in size.
Position and size indicated in diagram.
Leaving Jupiter and centinuw our out
ward course, wc next strilKe Saturn, the
most distant worlck'Knewn te the ancients,
aud in rcauy respects the most remarkable
pkwilet of the solar system. It has net
number of satellites of
Jupiter, but has, in addition, a number of
rings encircling it, some shining with a
golden light and ethers transparent. This
planet performs its revolution round the
sun in 29 years, at a mean distance of
872,000.000 miles in an orbit considerably
The diameter of Saturn is about G8,G30
miles, or about nine times that of the
Earth, and it would require 750 glebes like
the Earth te make a bulk equal te Saturn.
It moves through space at the rate of 21,
000 miles per hour, and yet, as we leek at
it night after night, we can scarcely detect
any change of place. The Saturnian year
comprises about 2,500 Saturnian days,
and is equal te about thirty of our years.
In 1793, Sir William Herschel saw a
quintuple belt, and by frequent examina
tion of this belt he found Saturn's rotation
a little ever 10 hours, making Saturn's
day about 10 hours. He also noticed that
the polar regions changed their appearance
as they were turned toward or from the
Sun, which, as in 3Iars, might be owing
te snow at the poles. Saturn has eight
moons, all varying in size and distance
from their primary, and their eclipses and
occultatiens are somewhat similar te these
Galileerfirst noticed something peculiar
in the shape of Saturn. Through his im
perfect telescope, it seemed as though sev
eral smaller planets had nestled close te
each side of old Saturn, and he first
thought Saturn was three-fold ; but as the
planet approached the equinoxes, this
strange appearance vanished altogether.
This perplexed Galilee very much, and he
died before the mystery was solved. The
rings, seen again at a later period, appear
ed as though they were handles attached
te the planet, but for what purpose no one
knew. This nppearance was due te a
break in the luminous rings made by
the projected shadow of the planet
l lie plane of the rings is inclined twenty-
eight degrees te the ecliptic. In its revo
lution round the Sun, owing te this inclin
ation, the ring is sometimes observed as a
bread ellipse, at ether times as a straight
line, barely discernablc with the most
powerful telescope. The rings are three in
number, about one mile in thickness, and
of equal breadth surrounding the planet at
the equator. The exterior ring is separated
from the middle ring by a distinct break,
while the interior is joined te the middle
one. 1 fie exterior ring is of a grayish tint.
the middle one is the most brilliant and
mere luminous than Satuin himself. The
ring is. dusky and has a purplish tint.
The exterior and middle rings are both
opaque and cast en the surface of the
planet a distinct shadow, while the interior
one is se transparent that it appears upon
the glebe of Saturn as a dark band through
which the surface is readily seen. Dia
gram. Procter, in speaking of Saturn and his
rings, said we had in them an illustration
et the nebular hypothesis in miniature,
and that probably these rings would at
some future time change into globular
form and add three mere te the number
of satellites of this planet.
Saturn was for a long time supposed te
be the most distant of the planets, and it
was net until 1781, en the 13th day of
March, that Sir William Herschel discov
ered a new planet and named it after Ura
nus, the most ancient of the gods. Uranus
revolves around the sun at a mean distance
of 1,734,000,000 miles. Its vear exceeds
84 of ours. Its diameter is about 33,000
miles, and is about Gl times as large as the
This planet has four satellites, which
differ in their motion from the ether mem
bers of our system in this respect, that in
stead of revolving around the planet from
west te east, the order is reversed and they
move irem east te icest. Anether peculiar
ity about these moons is, that their orbits
are inclined almost at right angles with
that of the planet's orbit.
Wc new come te the last and most dis
tant planet of the solar system. Neptune,
the god of the sea. Astronomers in ob
serving Uranus, noticed slight perturba
tions, and came te the conclusion that
there must be a planet in existence beyond
Uranus that had some influence upon him.
Mr. Adams, of England, and Leverrier, of
France, calculated the position of the
planet, which result was announced te the
Academy of Science, at Paris, in the sum
mer of 1846. Very little is known of this
planet, but it has been ascertained that it
revolves around the Sun in a period
of 1G4 years at a .distance of
about three billion miles. Its di
ameter is given as 39,000 miles, its bulk
121 times that of the Earth. Ne spots
can be detected en his disk, and therefore
we knew nothing about his time of rota
tion en the inclination of his axis. One
satellite has been discovered, and like the
moons of Uranus, it has a retrograde mo
tion. The Asteroids.
Planets have another division, besides
that into interior and exterior, known as
major aud miner planets, the latter being
sometimes called Asteroids. Bede's law
would make the distance of any planet
from the Sun about double that of the
next interior, and half that of the first ex
terior one. But this law seems te fail,
leaving a chasm between Mars and Jupi
ter, which was therefore supposed for
many years te contain a planet, and which
finally proved te be occupied by a very
large number of planetoids. Piazzi dis
covered the small planet Ceres en Jan. 1,
1801, the first night of the present century.
This discovery was seen followed by ethers,
until the number is new about 200. Le
verrier thinks it possible that there are
ever 150,000 in all. These planets are all
very small, Pallas being the largest, with a
diameter of 600 miles, while some could be
covered ever with a country village. They
all revolve around the Sun in regular orbits
comprising a zone of 100,000,000 miles in
width. Their orbits are variously inclined
te the ecliptic ; Massilius is inclined only
41 minutes while the inclination of Pallas
The true theory of these bodies is un
known, and a great many astronomers
have speculated as te their origin. One
theory is that at some remote period a
planet circled around the Sun, and by some
great force was rent asunder and its frag
ments hurled into space. This may ac
count for the great angle of inclination of
Pallas te the ecliptic. The explosion may
have forced it far out of the angle of in
clination of the planet of which it formed
a part. Anether theory is that of the
nebular hypothesis, that nebulous matter
revolved in the orbits of the miner planets
for aes, and that it gradually formed
itself into these small bodies, and that
these bodies will eventually group them
selves together and form a large planet like
the ethers of the solar system.
Whether or net any of these planets are
inhabited is a matter for speculation.
This will for ever remain a mystery te us.
But it is net very likely that the Earth
alone, which forms be small a part of the
snhuri-system, should be the abode of life.
It has been well said, that it is altogether
probable, that an all-wise Ged has created
beings, and peopled every planet with in
telligent creatures provided with organs
suitable for the condition of each.
Procter thinks that the elements and
conditions of material and life are very
much the same throughout the solar sys
tem, that Mars perhaps would be the only
planet upon which life such as we knew
could he possible, and that the ether
planets are gradually undergoing changes
which will eventually fit them for the hab
itation of man.
