Astronomical events in 2022 Full Moon Eclipse Details, Meteor Showers: Where to watch, how long it will last and more
In 2021, we had suborbital flights, we had a rover that landed on Mars, we sent the James Webb telescope, the best so far, in space and we expect many "gifts" in 2022. What will we see in 2022 , if we look up at the sky?
One of them will be visible for only 20 minutes, because the Moon is setting. We will have a lunar eclipse on May 16th. Basically, we will have to look at the moon in the morning, around 5 a.m, and we will find that it is very close to the horizon, because it is starting to set, but then it will start to enter the shadow of the Earth. It will be a spectacular phenomenon because we will see both the eclipsed sunset and the rising sun.
We will have another partial solar eclipse, which will be visible from us, on October 25. There, the Sun will be about 45 percent covered by the Moon. But it is a beautiful eclipse of the Sun, which will be seen, and for us the advantage is that it is partially visible from anywhere in the world, so we should not be "upset" that others could see it in full.
The new year will surely be a delight for heavenly viewers, with plenty of celestial events on the calendar. Here are the main events in the sky in 2022, so you can prepare your binoculars and telescope.
There are 12 phases of the full moon in 2022, and two of them qualify as supermoons. The definitions of a supermoon may vary, but the term generally refers to a full moon that is brighter and closer to Earth than normal, and therefore appears larger in the night sky.
Some astronomers say that the phenomenon occurs when the Moon is at 90% of perigee, the closest to Earth in orbit. According to this definition, the full moon in June as well as July will be considered supermoon events.
Here is the list of full astronomical events for 2022:
January 17: Moon of the Wolf
February 16: Snow Month
March 18: Worm Moon
April 16: Pink Moon
May 16: Flower Month
June 14: Strawberry Month
July 13: Deer Moon
August 11: Moon Sturgeon
September 10: Harvest Month
October 9: Hunter's Month
November 8: Beaver Month
December 7: Cold Moon
Lunar and solar eclipses
Partial solar eclipses occur when the Moon passes in front of the Sun, but only blocks some of its light. Be sure to wear appropriate eclipse goggles to see solar eclipses safely, as light can be harmful to the eyes.
A partial solar eclipse on April 30 can be seen in southern South America, the southeastern Pacific Ocean and the Antarctic Peninsula.
Another eclipse on October 25 will be visible in Greenland, Iceland, Europe, Northeast Africa, the Middle East, West Asia, India and western China.
A lunar eclipse can only occur during the full moon, when the Sun, Earth, and Moon align and the Moon passes in the shadow of the Earth. The earth casts two shadows on the moon during the eclipse. The penumbra is the partial outer shadow, and the shadow is the complete, dark one.
There will be two total lunar eclipses and two partial solar eclipses in 2022, according to The Old Farmer's Almanac.
When the full moon passes in the shadow of the Earth, it darkens, but does not disappear. Sunlight passing through the Earth's atmosphere illuminates the Moon dramatically, turning it red, which is why it is often referred to as the "blood moon."
The new year begins with the Quadrantid meteor shower, which is expected to peak in the night hours between January 2 and 3 for those in North America, according to the American Meteor Society.
The annual Perseid meteor shower in August is a real delight for those observing the sky, as it produces extremely many streaks of light through our atmosphere.
It is the first of 12 meteor showers during the year, although the next, the Lyrid meteor shower, does not reach its peak until April.
Here are the other rains to watch in 2022:
Lyrids: April 21-22
And Aquariids: May 4-5
Southern Delta Aquariums: July 29-30
Alpha Capricorns: July 30-31
Perseids: August 11-12
Orionids: October 20-21
Southern Taurids: November 4-5
Northern Taurids: November 11-12
Leonids: November 17-18
Geminids: December 13-14
Bears: December 21-22
If the sky remains clear, the Quarantines should reach their peak on the evening of January 3, after 20:00.
Lyride, meteor shower - April 21. In 2022, meteor showers will peak on the night of April 22 until the early hours of April 23.
Eta Aquarid, meteor shower - May 6. The meteor shower will peak on the night of May 5 to May 6.
Caused by Comet Halley, this meteor shower can be seen especially by people living in the southern hemisphere.
Super Moon - July 13th. A supermoon occurs when the Moon is closest to the Earth during its orbit, at the same time as a full moon, making the Moon appear significantly larger and brighter. In 2022 you will be able to see this show in mid-July.
Perseids, meteor showers - August 12 and 13. Perseids can be seen from mid-July to late August, but the peak will be between August 12 and 13.
Orionids, meteor showers - October 21. If it is dark at night, it is possible to see between 10 and 20 meteors in the sky every hour.
Partial solar eclipse - October 25. The eclipse will be visible in the UK, Europe and parts of the Middle East on October 25.
Geminids, meteor shower - December 14. The meteor shower will take place for about two weeks, but the meteorites can be seen best on December 14th.
The first meteor shower of the year, Quadrantidele, has its maximum manifestation period in January, in 2022 it takes place on the night of January 3 to 4. This meteor shower has its radiant in the constellation Bootes and is one of the strongest meteor currents, producing between 100 and 140 meteors per hour. The meteors of this current are bright and very fast.
In the year 2022, on April 14, we will have the phenomenon of the Black Moon (sometimes called in English "Dark Moon" - or "Lilith", meaning "Dark Moon" or "Black Moon"). The moon is the only natural satellite of planet Earth and has no light of its own, but only reflects that received from the Sun. There are several ways to calculate the occurrence of the phenomenon called the Black Moon: the third phase of the New Moon in a season in which there are four such monthly phases (a year with four seasons of three months each); the second phase of the New Moon in a month in which two such phases occur; the month in which the New Moon phase does not occur and the month in which the Full Moon phase does not occur
In 2022, there will be four eclipses (two lunar and two solar), according to NASA. Both lunar eclipses are total and will occur on May 16 and November 8, respectively. The first will be visible from the Americas, Europe and Africa, and the second from Asia, Australia, the Pacific and the two continents, according to eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov.
The 2022 solar eclipses will be partial and will occur on April 30 and October 25, respectively. April will be observed in the Southeast Pacific, and October in Europe, Northeast Africa, the Middle East and West Asia,
The four astronomical events that mark the beginning of the four seasons in 2022 occur at: March 20 17 h 33 m - spring equinox, June 21 12 h 14 m - summer solstice, September 23 04 h 04 m - autumn equinox , on December 21 23 h 38 m - the winter solstice.
On January 20, from an astrological point of view, the transition to the zodiac sign Aquarius is made, until February 18.
In 2022, a real heavenly spectacle is announced
We also have as a spectacular phenomenon the approach of the planet Mars. Mars is approaching Earth in December and will reach about 80 million kilometers from us. At the same time, on the evening when it is best seen all year round, the Moon will cross Mars and cover it. An occultation between the Moon and Mars will be seen somewhere around 7:00 in the morning.
We have other visible planets. For example, in the morning of March, you will see four planets in the sky: Mercury, Mars, Venus and Saturn. Then Mars will meet Saturn in April, and they will be side by side in the morning. Venus will also meet Jupiter on May 1st. From July, all year round, three planets will be seen all night: Saturn, Jupiter and Mars. They will remain visible until the end of the year.
The year of the recapture of the moon
On the other hand, 2022 will be the year of the recapture of the Moon, because almost all the states that can afford it will launch probes towards the Moon. The Americans will launch their Artemis system to the moon and back, with no people on board, will test to see if everything works. India and China will also launch probes to the moon, and it appears that Ukraine also wants to launch a satellite to study the moon closely.
The first solar eclipse of this year took place on Sunday. The Shadow of the Moon passed through West Africa, southern Saudi Arabia, India (not far from New Delhi), crossed the Himalayas, Tibet, China, Taiwan, and ended in the East China Sea. Below, how the solar eclipse could be seen in the cities and countries from which it was visible, in pictures.
The sun can be viewed safely using a green welding filter. Looking at the Sun every five minutes we can see how the edge of the Moon will touch its disk.
Those who have an astronomical instrument must be very careful in observing the eclipse. A safe method can be used, the projection method. A white card or white sheet is placed behind the telescope or telescope. The Sun's disk will be projected on a sheet where the eclipse can be observed, by several spectators at once. No filter will be used when using the projection method.
An annular eclipse of the Sun occurs when the length of the axis of the shadow cone of the Moon is less than the distance Earth-Moon, the tip of the shadow cone being located between two bodies. For the terrestrial points in the field delimited by the extension of the shadow cone, an annular eclipse of the Sun will take place, from these points being visible a peripheral ring of the Sun in the form of a "ring of fire". The Sun and the Moon are perfectly aligned with the Earth, the apparent diameter of the Moon is smaller than that of the Sun;
As the moon is quite far from Earth on this day, it will not be able to obscure all the light of the Sun sent to earth. From the Sun you will only see the edge in the shape of a "ring of fire" that surrounds the dark Moon.
A solar eclipse always occurs during the New Moon phase. Solar eclipses can be of three types: partial, annular and total. A total eclipse occurs every 40 years, visible from the same region of the earth.
We finally celebrated the new 2022 year. Astronomers say that we will have at least 5 unmissable events that you have to watch in 2022 in terms of stargazing. The coming year offers many heavenly delights for those who observe the sky. We will have, including two months of bleeding, partial solar eclipses and several planetary encounters.
The year 2022 is full of astrological events
In 2022, the night sky promises to be full of cosmic wonders. The total lunar eclipses, nicknamed the "Bloody Moon" for the intense red hue that the Moon takes when bathed in the shadow of the Earth, will be visible to billions of people.
Shining stars will pass through the sky without the bright moon drowning out the light. And sky observers can watch a cluster of five of the brightest neighboring planets, all visible to the naked eye.
Under the right conditions, distant Uranus could even join the other five visible planets, being seen as a small point of green light in the sky. Here is an overview of some of the most spectacular celestial phenomena worth circling in your calendar for next year.
On January 3 and 4, a rain of Quadrantid meteorites reaches its peak
For viewers in the northern hemisphere, the first major meteor shower in 2022, Quadrantidele, peaked on the night of January 3 and in the early hours of the morning of January 4. The thin, crescent-shaped moon will set early in the evening, leaving a dark sky ideal during peak hours between midnight and dawn.
This New Year's rain is known to produce brighter-than-average shooting stars, with 25 to 100 visible meteors per hour, depending on local light pollution.
Quadrantids take their name from the former constellation Quadrans Muralis, and the flaming space rocks appear to radiate from the northeast of the sky, right next to the handle of the Great Chariot.
Like all meteor showers, the best way to see as many shooting stars as possible is to find a place to watch away from the city lights and wait about 20 minutes for your eyes to fully adjust to the darkness of the sun. at the end of the night or before dawn.
Between March 24 and April 5, 2022, Venus, Mars and Saturn in a planetary dance
From late March to early April, those who wake up early in both hemispheres will be able to see some of the brightest neighboring planets performing a majestic celestial ballet.
Look at the low sky in the southeast about an hour before the local sunrise to catch Venus, Mars and Saturn grouped in a tight triangular group. On March 27 and 28, the rising moon will pass the planetary party.
Observers of the sky watching the planets from one morning to the next will notice that their positions will change. The planets will form a triangle that will change its angles until after April 1, when the trio will appear in a straight line.
In early April, you can also see how Saturn will approach Mars until the two appear next to each other between April 3 and 5. The two planets will appear closest on April 4, when they will be separated by only half a degree of arc, equal to the width of the full moon.
On April 30 we will have the first partial solar eclipse
Two partial solar eclipses, when the Moon blocks part of the solar disk in the sky, will occur in 2022. The first will be visible in southern South America, parts of Antarctica and parts of the Pacific and Southern Oceans.
On April 30, the Moon will pass between the Earth and the Sun, the maximum eclipse will take place at 20:41 UT, when up to 64% of the solar disk will be covered by the Moon. To see the largest magnitude of the eclipse, spectators will have to be positioned in the southern ocean, west of the Antarctic Peninsula.
However, those who watch the eclipse in the southernmost parts of Chile and Argentina will be able to see about 60 percent of the sun covered by the moon.
Goggles are needed to safely see all phases of a partial solar eclipse. Even though the sun may not appear as bright in the sky, looking directly at it can seriously hurt your eyes, so if you plan to see the eclipse on April 30, be sure to wear goggles that meet international safety standards.
On October 25, the second partial solar eclipse
On October 25, the Moon will bite from the Sun, when a partial eclipse of the Sun will cover the sky in most of Europe and the Middle East, as well as parts of West Asia, North Africa and Greenland.
Similar to the April 30 partial eclipse, this October event will take place when the Moon partially blocks the solar disk, as seen from Earth. Up to 86% of the sun will be covered for spectators in parts of Eurasia.
The moon's silhouette will begin to block some of the sun at 8:58 UT, and the maximum eclipse will occur at 11:00 UT. People in North and South America will not be lucky in this eclipse, because the partial solar eclipse will take place during the night in America.
The next solar eclipse for those looking at the sky west of the Atlantic will take place only on October 14, 2023, when an annular eclipse, or "ring of fire", will be visible.
On November 7th and 8th we will have a total lunar eclipse
Residents of North and South America, Australia, Asia and parts of Europe will have the opportunity to watch the red moon for the second time in 2022, when a total lunar eclipse will occur during the night of November 7 and 8.
In the western United States and Canada, in eastern Russia, in New Zealand, and in parts of eastern Australia, those looking at the sky will have the opportunity to see the entire eclipse unfold.
Meanwhile, eastern North America and most of South America will be able to watch partial phases of the eclipse as the moon sets in the west.
The moon will begin to darken along its edge on November 8 at 3:03 a.m. PT, and then its entire disk will plunge into the deepest central portion of the Earth's shadow at 2:59 a.m. PT. The eclipse will end at 3:41 a.m. PT, ending another wonderful year of stargazing, according to National Geographic.
The year 2022, a year of astronomical spectacle. The important thing is to have luck and clear skies so that we can see them in all their splendor.
Let’s look back at the most beautiful lunar eclipses in history.
The longest partial lunar eclipse of 2021
The longest partial lunar eclipse in the last 580 years occurred in 2021. The spectacular phenomenon, also called the "Blood Moon" due to the reddish light surrounding the Moon, was visible throughout North America as well as in some parts of the world. South America, East Australia and Northeast Asia.
The whole event lasted just over six hours, and the Moon spent three hours, 28 minutes and 23 seconds passing through the darkest part of the Earth's shadow. It was the longest partial lunar eclipse since 1440, according to NASA.
The eclipse, at its peak with 99.1% of the visible surface of the moon covered (Friday 09:03 GMT), was also visible by part of Northeast Asia, Polynesia and eastern Australia, but not from Europe or Africa.
Total lunar eclipse of 2019
Residents of much of Europe, West Africa, the Americas, and some parts of Asia were admiring a total lunar eclipse in clear skies.
It was the last such phenomenon that occurred before 2022.
For Europeans and Africans, the total eclipse occurred at the end of the night, shortly before sunrise. The eclipse was less visible in the eastern part of the two continents, due to the appearance of dawn.
For North and South Americans, the eclipse was visible in its early or midnight.
The full moon was in the shadow of the Earth from 03:34 GMT to 06:51 GMT.
During the first hour of this interval, it was gradually "blocked" from the left. The eclipse was total for one hour, starting at 04:41 GMT, according to NASA's timeframes.
The total phase of the eclipse was about three quarters of an hour shorter than that of the great eclipse of July 2018, which remained the longest in the 21st century.
During the total eclipse, the Moon was not visible, but appeared red in the night sky, as it happens during all total eclipses.
This coloration was due to the fact that the sun's rays no longer touched it directly. Instead, a small portion of the red rays of the light spectrum was filtered by the Earth's atmosphere and refracted to the moon (blue rays diverge outward), the same phenomenon that colors the sunrises and sunsets seen from Earth in red.
Total lunar eclipse of 2018
The lunar eclipse of July 27, 2018 was the second lunar eclipse of 2018. It was the second total eclipse, out of a series of three, which occurred at an interval of about six months. There was also a total central eclipse, with the Moon passing through the center of the Earth's shadow. It was the first central lunar eclipse since June 15, 2011.
Because it occurred when the Moon was nearing its peak, this eclipse was the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century, with a total phase of almost 103 minutes.
Eclipse of July 27, 2018. Friday night to Saturday was a unique astronomical event of this century. A total lunar eclipse took place on July 27, 2018, which was the longest in the 21st century.
Also called the "Blood Moon", the lunar eclipse of July 27, 2018 was the second total lunar eclipse that year and the third in a series of total eclipses that occur between 2017 and 2019.
In total, the astral phenomenon from the night of July 27 to 28 lasted 374 minutes, respectively 6 hours and 16 minutes. The Moon was in the shadow of our planet for 3 hours and 56 minutes.
The totality of the lunar eclipse of July 27, 2018 lasted 103 minutes, being the longest in the century 2000-2100, but with a small difference from the eclipses of June 26, 2029 and July 7, 2047, which will have totalities lasting 102 minutes.
Lunar eclipse through the twilight of 2016
On March 23, was the first lunar eclipse in the twilight of 2016. The eclipse coincided with another spectacular astronomical phenomenon. The lunar eclipse began on Wednesday.
The astronomical phenomenon was visible only for a few minutes in Asia, Australia, North America, South America, the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean, the Arctic Ocean and Antarctica, because at that time, the Earth was between the Moon and the Sun and the shadow. The earth covered the lunar disk in a proportion of 77.5%.
A full astronomical phenomenon took place in the full moon eclipse through the penumbra. Jupiter was much brighter than usual, and after the moon was closest to the moon, it was looking like a big star, shining right next to the full moon, slightly dimmed. Jupiter was at its maximum brightness (apparent magnitude of -2.5), while the full moon, even during the eclipse, was still extremely bright, with a magnitude of -12.4.
Total lunar eclipse from 2010
The total lunar eclipse was the second that year after the partial eclipse of June 26, 2010.
In Europe, the beginning of the lunar eclipse was visible before sunrise only in the Scandinavian Peninsula.
This was the first lunar eclipse to occur on the day of the winter solstice in 1638. The next such lunar eclipse will occur in 2094.
The previous total lunar eclipse occurred almost two years ago, on February 21, 2008.
2011 began with a partial solar eclipse on January 4, followed by two more total lunar eclipses on June 15, 2011 and December 10, 2011.
The moment of totality is spectacular because the Moon had shades of orange-red-brick. The disc was not colored and evenly lit, the part closer to the center of the shadow was darker (the bottom of the disc).
For centuries, mankind has created a history that has been passed down from generation to generation. The myths or the reality about the leap years that have survived so far make everyone think about this inexplicable fact.
What is a leap year?
The term "jump" in Latin has a numerical meaning - 2/6. It is scientifically the fourth year above the standard number of days (366).
The historical period of a leap year
During the reign of Y. Caesar, there was an additional day repeated in the Roman calendar, with a number (February 24).
The Romans counted the days, the years, according to the Julian calendar.
In the Julian calendar, every fourth year was considered a leap year, and the last two days of February were below the same number.
After the death of the Roman ruler, the priests deliberately began to appoint the third year - a leap year. There was a change in the annual time and people, for this reason, lived up to twelve leap years.
Due to the decree of the new emperor of Rome - Augustus Octavian, everything fell into place. It took sixteen years to get the "jump time" right.
Sixteen centuries later, the Orthodox Church introduced new changes to the calendar.
The head of the Catholic Church, Pope Gregory XIII, proposed to calculate the calendar according to the new rules. He proposed introducing an additional day in February with a different date (February 29). At the general assembly, before the coming Easter, the idea of the head of the Catholic Church was successfully accepted. The Roman calendar had a new chronology. In honor of the leader of the Catholic Church, she began to be called a "Gregorian."
The modern concept of a leap year
It is known that a year consists of 365 days. The next fourth year is considered a leap year. It's a longer day.
In a leap year, February is not twenty-eight days, but twenty-nine, but this phenomenon happens every four years.
Assumptions and superstitions for the leap year
Our Slavic ancestors believed that the leap year was a mystical, superstitious year. Probably the reason lies in the distant history of Saint Kasyan.
Saint Kasian served in the Galilean monastery and was its founder. He became famous for his writing career after writing twenty-four essays on "Interview," based on a moral, Christian attitude toward the faith.
The main flaw in Saint Kasyan's life was that his date of birth fell on the last day of February and even at the end of the year.
According to the Slavic faith, the last day of the year was considered the end of a severe winter. For this reason, the holy monk gained a bad reputation.
The superstitious Slavs considered the last day of a leap year to be the most difficult. They believed in evil spirits. Hence the fear of people before a leap year.
The signs of a leap year have been associated with Saint Kasyan:
- If Kasyan approached people, the disease would attack them.
- Kasyan was next to the animals - their deaths were inevitable.
- Where Kasyan's gaze falls, there will be trouble and devastation.
- The unsuccessful year is approaching Kasyanov - unsuccessful.
According to legend, in a leap year, there are many things you should not do, for example:
- Play weddings
- Plan a pregnancy, have children
- Create new projects
- Go into the woods for mushrooms
- Divorce file
- Borrow money
- Plant new seeds
- Make interior renovations
- Buying real estate
The approach of a leap year in modern society is controversial. One part of society believes in its negative actions, the other does not.
Negative side of a leap year:
- Natural disasters
- Military conflicts
- Frequent accident
The positive side of a leap year
People born in a leap year are creative and talented people. Endowed with a brilliant charisma, strong character, love of life (Julius Caesar, Leonardo da Vinci, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Gauguin).
Today, a leap year is perceived as a year of disasters, wars, catastrophes. After all, the worst events took place during this period.
People are prone to believe something and most often evil. A leap year is perceived as a time of loss, disappointment, sadness. Is that right? Just ask yourself.
Leap year: where did the extra day come from?
Do you think that the Earth will make a complete revolution in exactly 365 days? No, it's not like that - the Earth makes a complete circle around the Sun a little longer, that is, 365 days and 6 hours.
In other words, an extra quarter is added each year. For 4 years, such quarters come out 24 hours. So, it turned out that a year that is a multiple of 4 (2008, 2012, 2016, the calendar of leap years is based on this principle) is different from the rest.
The leap year is intended to eliminate this surplus and to bring the balance into chronology. If it weren't for the leap year, then in a few centuries the new year would have been postponed to the beginning of March, and that's pretty serious!
Differences from leap year
The differences between a leap year and other years, from a material point of view, are limited only by the number of days. In addition, people need to work harder for a day. Sometimes, however, it turns out and rests once again, but this happens quite rarely.
Astrologically, there are a lot of problems around the Earth around the Sun in a leap year:
- everyday problems;
- man-made disasters;
- natural cataclysms;
- relatively high mortality.
However, one can argue with the latter - there are no comments from ritual service workers about the increase in mortality. Only a few older people die.
Year leap: Greetings from Antiquity
For the first time, the ancient Romans were concerned about the inconsistency of the calendar with the actual course of time. In this country, it was forbidden to transfer significant data in another season. People were guided by the movement of the Sun in the sky.
Gaius Julius Caesar solved the problem quickly and radically - from the time of his reign, people began to live according to the Julian calendar, which just added a day in February every 4 years. They gradually started moving to the new calendar, not everyone accepted it, but time took its toll.
Over time, the pagan calendar migrated to Christian culture. But in some regions this year he is associated with Kasyan Visokos, one of the saints, the patron saint of monasticism.
He is believed to have been drinking without restraint for three years, and at the age of four he gets angry and takes revenge in public for the fact that his birthday is celebrated only once every 4 years.
However, there is a discrepancy here - a Christian saint, by definition, cannot be a drunk, plus there is no record in the church that Visokos would like.
Signs and beliefs associated with a leap year
Now the leap year is relatively simple, and earlier some people were afraid to leave home on February 29 in a leap year. For example, there was a sign that if you get a good frost on that day, and the frosts can be severe at the end of February, then a person will certainly catch a cold and die.
The same goes for animals. Popular belief says that any mistake in caring for pets on this day can cost animals their lives. For example, malnutrition or overeating.
Starting a new business in a leap year, according to popular belief, cannot be very successful.
Surely everything will be ruined: even if a man builds a house, he even opens a business. In addition, all major cases should be postponed until at least February 29 - this time is considered the most unfortunate since the beginning of the year.
To calm Visokos a little, you need to do the following:
- under the bells, throw a glass of vodka from the window (another alcohol is suitable, but it must be strong);
- drink without glasses that shake when it is exactly midnight;
- If you still have glasses, then you should put the glasses on the table before taking a sip.
According to popular belief, Visokos' anger will diminish slightly before the completion of the next journey around the Sun.
Another interesting sign is associated with the collection of gifts from nature. Picking mushrooms and berries is usually difficult on February 29, but things found on the street, such as money, can cause problems if they enter the house.
And if the dog barks at the same time (a dog day on February 29 itself is a bad sign), then trouble is guaranteed. You have to ignore it while saying, "Hold me out."
Prohibitions of the leap year
Because this year is so unlucky, people have come with a lot of bans, noticing that you can remove the troubles from home. By the way, nature "participates" in these prohibitions as well.
For example, according to ancient memories, in leap years, usually a poor apple crop.
So what not to do in a leap year:
- You can't sing carols for baptism. This ritual in itself is relatively associated with evil spirits and once every four years it is especially "attentive" to humans. You better not litter. So, no matter how many sweets people offer, it is better to avoid carols.
- It is not recommended to sell homemade products. It is believed that happiness and wealth leave home with them.
- You can't show the first erupted tooth to a baby to anyone, except maybe your closest relatives. If the ban is violated, the child will have crooked teeth.
- You can't start a big business, including getting married. Everything will break down, as I mentioned above.
- You can't buy "coffin stuff". It sounds weird, but for some people in their old age it is the norm to buy things for their own funeral. Doing so in a leap year will hasten death.
- Women are strictly forbidden to dye their hair. This can lead to the lady becoming bald.
- It is forbidden to change jobs or places of residence. In a new place, a person will simply not take root, you will have to start from scratch (this point is sometimes impractical because there are different circumstances in life).
- Having children joins this forbidden group, but not everyone takes this restriction seriously.
Everything may sound archaic, but the fact remains - people often complain to astrologers and psychics about the misfortunes that began even after violating such prohibitions.
Conclusion - until the Earth makes a complete revolution around the Sun in a leap year, some activities should be abandoned.
The reason for the bad reputation of a leap year
We must recognize that if we did not have leap years, there would be a regular change of seasons. Therefore, they help to synchronize the Gregorian and astrological calendars and do not allow the seasons to change in other months.
But why a leap year is considered bad, you have to figure it out. In Slavic culture, there has long been a negative attitude towards such years. An additional day in February was considered the cause of disasters and landslides.
Perhaps the reason for such antipathy was that this time, on February 29, according to Slavic beliefs, Kashchey-Chernobog was subdued, commanding dark forces, sowing evil, death, disease, and madness.
Old Russians often associated a day of jumping with Cassian, who was born on February 29th. Based on the legends, where he was assigned the role of guardian of the gates of Hell, the traitorous cherub, the adoptive one of the demons, etc., one can understand why this character was very feared and strongly cursed.

Every year, the Golden Globe Awards ceremony gathers millions of people in front of the television, being broadcast in over 167 countries. It ranks third in the top of the most watched festivals in the world, after the Oscars and the Grammy Awards. However, few people know where and especially when all the madness surrounding this trophy started.
The story of the Golden Globe Awards began in 1943, when several American writers founded the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). With it, they thought that the best actors of the moment deserve to be recognized on the open stage, so they created an international festival.
The first trophy in the history of the Golden Globe for Best Picture was won in 1944 by The Song of Bernadette, and Paul Lukas (Watch on the Rhine) and Jennifer Jones (The Song of Bernadette) ) were rewarded for best performances in the lead role.
Since then, the Golden Globe Awards have been presented annually, at the end of January, for movies and TV series shot a year ago.
In 1963, the concept of "Miss Golden Globe" was introduced, and in the first year, two winners were named: Eva Six and Donna Douglas. Starting in 2007, a new category was introduced - "Best Animated movie".
On January 7, 2008, it was announced that due to the screenwriters' strike of 2007-2008, the 65th edition of the Golden Globes will not be broadcast live. The decision was made after screenwriters threatened to boycott the ceremony. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has been forced to adopt a new mode of transmission. The entire awards ceremony took place in a press conference that lasted only 31 minutes, being the shortest award ceremony in history. The winners would later receive their trophy. It was the first time in the history of the Golden Globes that the awards were presented at a press conference.
The Golden Globes, which reward movie and television achievements, will be awarded in early 2022. The gala will no longer be broadcast on NBC. The Golden Globes will take place early next year, on January 9, 2022.
After a series of revelations about the lack of diversity in the trophy forum, NBC announced in May this year that it will not broadcast the 2022 gala.
The road to next year's Oscars begins with the 2022 Golden Globe and nominations have just been announced. After a controversial 2021 gala on the final gala, the full list of possible winners has been revealed by Snoop Dogg.
After a slightly poorer 2020 in terms of high-budget movie releases, 2021 has been loaded with major productions. Some of them are to be awarded the Golden Globe on January 9, 2022. Among the most important feature movies are Dune, Coda, Belfast, King Richard and The Power of the Dog.
Unlike the Oscars, the Golden Globe distinguishes between comedies or musicals and dramas, and the latter category seems a bit more important. For this reason, it is important to note that the nominations for best drama are Dune, Coda, Belfast, King Richard or The Power of the Dog.
Movies such as "Cyrano," "Don't Look Up," "Licorice Pizza," "Tick, Tick, Boom!", And "West Side Story," the Foreign Press Association announced on Monday. Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) which annually awards the Golden Globes.
Unlike in previous years, NBC will not broadcast the awards after the scandal of 2021. As a reference, in the last few editions, only movies with white actors in the lead roles have enjoyed the awards, and in categories such as best actor or actress there was no diversity.
However, returning to this year's nominations, Pedro Almodovar's Madres Paralelas is nominated for best foreign movie. Javier Bardem is nominated for Best Actor for his role in Being the Ricardos, while Alberto Iglesias could also win the award for Best Soundtrack for Almodovar's Madres Paralelas. "Compartment No. 6" (Germany, Russia and Finland), "Drive My Car" (Japan), "The Hand of God" (Italy) and "A Hero" (Iran and France) also compete for the best foreign movie. .
