National and international holidays, anniversaries, VIP birthdays and important events in history connects our societies and make a great general knowledge quiz.
*** Relevance ***
It is fascinating to watch the planetary movements and ponder what influence they have. For example the stock market crash (Black Monday) of 1987 happened exactly on Jupiter opposition, which will happen again on 21. September 2010 and 29. October 2011. Of course if you don´t believe in this psychology you’ll enjoy the all-night visibility of that bright planet which the greeks call Zeus. The ‘orbitgraph’ gives a quick reference of the changing of evening and morning stars and the 13 (!) signs of the zodiac, where all 5 naked-eye-visible planets can be found.
