You are invited to come to see the Earth turn, tomorrow, from three to five, at Meridian Hall of the Paris Observatory.
All places, all airs make unto me one country; I am in England, everywhere, and under any meridian.
They may veil their eyes, but they cannot hideThe sun’s meridian glow;The heel of a priest may tread thee down,And a tyrant work thee woe:But never a truth has been destroyed;They may curse it, and call it crime;Pervert and betray, or slander and slayIts teachers for a time.But the sunshine aye shall light the sky,As round and round we run;And the truth shall ever come uppermost,And justice shall be done.charles mackay
In Indian astronomy, the prime meridian is the great circle of the Earth passing through the north and south poles, Ujjayin? and La?k?, where La?k? was assumed to be on the Earth's equator .
'What's the good of Mercator's North Poles and Equators, Tropics, Zones and meridian lines?' So the Bellman would cry: and the crew would reply, 'Theyare merely conventional signs!'
