equivalent of 115 million suns26. Alfa of Hercules, which is 1,200 light years away, and is the largest of all known stars, is eight million billion times larger than the sun27. In order to understand the enormity of these celestial bodies , we can say that the orbit of the moon around theearth fits inside the Sun, and that the radius of Antares is equal to the diameter of earth’s orbit, that is about 300,000,000 km, and that the diameter of the orbit of Pluto which is 12,000 million km, is a tenth of the radius of Alfa of Hercules. All of the data mentioned above was calculated for me by an astronomer. The largest known radio star is DA/240 which has a diameter of six million lightyears28. The diameter of this radio-star is sixty times greater than the diameter of our galaxy, the Milky Way, which is only about one hundred thousand light years.

5. These gigantic objects travel at great speeds. Earth travels at one hundred thousand kilometers per hour, which is about thirty kilometers per second29. The Sun is traveling towards the Constellation of Hercules at a rate of 300km per second. The Constellation of Virgo is moving away from us at a speed of one thousand kilometers per second30 The Cumulus of Boyero is leaving us at a speed of one hundred thousand kilometers per second31. Because of the speedy motion towards the red ray spectrum we can calculate that there are stars that are moving at a rate of 276,000 km per second, or about 92% of the speed of light.6. The movement of the stars is so exact that one can make an almanac years in advance. An almanac lists the rising and the setting of the sun every day, the eclipses which will occur during the year, the day they will take place, the hour, minute and second, how long they will last, what part of the Sun or the Moon will be hidden, from what point on Earth they will be visible, etc. etc. On June30, 1973, all of Spain was engrossed in the partial eclipse of the Sun which the press had been talking about for several days. On October 2, 1959, a total eclipse of the Sun was visible from the Canary Islands. This occurred at 12 noon, just as had been predicted eons before. Because of this they installed on Punta de Jandía in Fuerteventura, an observation post where scientists from all over theworld gathered. The previous eclipse of the Sun which was seen from the Canary Islands occurred on August 30, 1905 and it is known that “we will have to wait until the XXII Century has passed before we see another total eclipse of the Sun from within our borders”32. In July 1985, the Astrophysical Observatory of the Canary Islands was inaugurated. It is the most important one in Europe and one ofthe best in the world. It will study the Sun and the stars. In 2005, we can observe an annular eclipse from Cadiz, Spain33.

Halley’s Comet (so named in honor of the astronomer Edmund Halley, afriend and contemporary of Isaac Newton) as had been foreseen in the nineteenth century, passed close to us in 1910. It again passed near Earth (486 million km.) in March of ‘86 as had been predicted. All news media in the world spoke of the comet. Halley (1646-1742) who observed the comet in 1662, calculated its orbit and predicted that it would appear every 76 years, and it has so happened34. It...
