In Greek Human is called Anthropos.

Anthropos is the animal that looks up to the sky and that is what distinguishes him from the other animals!

Enjoy!Anthropos

May I recommend to you all to take a look inside of THE OLD FARMERS ALMANAC. It contains very useful astronomical information in each of the monthly calendars. Have any of you ever heard of a Full Corn Moon?:eek: :eek:

Kokopuffs, when I read "Full Corn Moon" in your post, for some reason I thought of painful feet. :eek:

Mezz - I think "Full Corn Moon" is what you see if a naked person bends over to attend to his/her corns :)

The FULL CORN MOON is the first full moon following the HARVEST MOON. Okay?

You'd all be surprised at the wealth of agricultural and astronomical information, as well as recipes, contained in the OLD FARMERS ALMANAC. Get a copy and see.

Cool link . I have been an astronomy buff since I was a child . Remember we are much more than we think for we are made of star dust .

Athanaeus:

I forwarded the site to my 7-year-old grandson who is developing a great interest in astronomy.

Thanks.

Mike :)

Dear Mike LM

I remember my grandfather showing me the stars:) He was the one who told me that humans look up to the sky!
I wish you to be close to your grandson soon in order you show him the Stars.
Star watching with a grandfather on your side is something that cannot be forgotten as you grow up.
I attach another site because it contains the Greek and Roman Myths that are hidding behind the names of the Stars.
Each star has it's Myth...
