The emerging brightness of the new day, while inviting, did nothing to sort out the tangle of thoughts crowding his brain like the line of a snarled fishing reel.
The brightness of every room made his sensitive eyes squint.
353), with which he measured the relative brightness of 2784 stars between the North Pole and about - so declination.
She blinked, blinded by the brightness of the morning sun streaming into the catacombs.
The brightness of the morning was magical.
It was still his, a place for him to escape Ingrid and the brightness of his condo.
The sudden brightness blinded her, and she shielded her eyes.
" As the little water-drop poured into a large measure of wine seems to lose its own nature entirely and to take on both the taste and the colour of the wine; or as iron heated red-hot loses its own appearance and glows like fire; or as air filled with sunlight is transformed into the same brightness so that it does not so much appear to be illuminated as to be itself light - so must all human feeling towards the Holy One be self-dissolved in unspeakable wise, and wholly transfused into the will of God.
She blinked back the flood of brightness and covered her eyes as she slumped back on the sofa.
He returned to the glaring brightness of the condo.
Stars whose brightness fluctuates are called variable stars.
I hope your Christmas Day will be a very happy one and that the New Year will be full of brightness and joy for you and every one.
Such a brightness on the face like the light of heaven, and from the blessed Mother's cheek it drops and drops....
Red lead or triplumbic tetroxide, Pb304, is a scarlet crystalline powder of specific gravity 8.6-9.1, obtained by roasting very finely divided pure massicot or lead carbonate; the brightness of the colour depends in a great measure on the roasting.
He cast his eyes downward, away from the brightness, and saw little except the ground in front of him.
There, standing silhouetted in the brightness behind him stood the pride of the FBI, Jonathan Winston.
Of course, he soon noticed the brightness of the leaves, and discovered the cause, too, when he caught sight of the broken jars and vases from which the melted treasure was still dropping.
Of course, he had not gone far when he noticed the brightness of the leaves, and he quickly guessed the cause when he saw the broken jars from which the treasure was still dropping.
The sun knows that you like to see the world covered with beautiful white snow and so he kept back all his brightness, and let the little crystals form in the sky.
Or -2/37r:1; so that the brightness in this direction is 4/91r 2 of the maximum at 0=0.
Let us now consider the distribution of brightness in the image of a double line whose components are of equal strength, and at such an angular interval that the central line in the image of one coincides with the first zero of brightness in the image of the other.
But, as will be evident, the bright bands bordering the central band are now not inferior to it in brightness; in fact, a band similar to the central band is reproduced an indefinite number of times, so long as there is no sensible discrepancy of phase in the secondary waves proceeding from the various parts of the same slit.
" Thus the magnitude of the central spot is diminished, and the brightness of the rings increased, by covering the central parts of the object-glass."
His fine eyes lit up with a thoughtful, kindly, and unaccustomed brightness, but he was looking not at his sister but over her head toward the darkness of the open doorway.
Perhaps the best data for a comparison are those afforded by the varying brightness of stars at different altitudes.
Vii., where wisdom, the brightness of the everlasting light, is the source of all that is noblest in human life.
3 the curve of brightness for one component is ABC, and for the other OA'C'; and the curve representing half the combined brightnesses is E'BE.
The brightness (corresponding to B) midway between the two central points AA' is 8106 of the brightness at the central points themselves.
If the angular interval between the components of a double line be half as great again as that supposed in the figure, the brightness midway between is 1802 as against 1.0450 at the central lines of each image.
But its brightness was far from comparing with the glorious accounts of its former apparitions.
In the Avesta, after the separation of the Iranian stock from the Hindu and the rise of Zoroastrianism, which elevated Ormazd to the summit of the Persian theological system, his role was more distinct, though less important; between Ormazd, who reigned in eternal brightness, and Ahriman, whose realm was eternal darkness, he occupied an intermediate position as the greatest of the yazatas, beings created by Ormazd to aid in the destruction of evil and the administration of the world.
When light proceeding from a small source falls upon an opaque object, a shadow is cast upon a screen situated behind the obstacle, and this shadow is found to be bordered by alternations of brightness and darkness, known as " diffraction bands."
An interesting exception to the general rule that full brightness requires the existence of the first zone occurs when the obstacle assumes the form of a small circular disk parallel to the plane of the incident waves.
Within the rectangle formed by pairs of consecutive dark lines, and not far from its centre, the brightness rises to a maximum; but these subsequent maxima are in all cases much inferior to the brightness at the centre of the entire pattern (=o, n =o).
If the aperture be increased, not only is the total brightness over the focal plane increased with it, but there is also a concentration of the diffraction pattern.
So long as there is no sensible discrepancy of phase there can be no sensible diminution of brightness as compared with that to be found at the focal point itself.
We may compare the brightness with that in the direction 0=0.
The greatest brightness is at the centre, where dC = 27rp d p, C = 7rR2.
The subsequent revivals of brightness forming the bright rings are necessarily of inferior brilliancy as compared with the central disk.
If appears that the maximum brightness in the first ring is only about 5 1 1 of the brightness at the centre.
The mean brightness varies as z3 (or as r3), and the integral found by multiplying it by zdz and integrating between o and co converges.
It may be instructive to contrast this with the case of an infinitely narrow annular aperture, where the brightness is proportional to Jo 2 (z).
The mean brightness varies as .51; and the integral f J02(z)zdz is not convergent.
The visibility of a star is a question of brightness simply, and has nothing to do with resolving power.
(7) If B m denote the brightness of the mth lateral image, and Bo that the central image, we have amp 'cosx' dx= a d (1) (-) m7r B.: Bo= a+d am?r sin' a4 d (1).
A+d If B denotes the brightness of the central image when the whole of the space occupied by the grating is transparent, we have Bo:B =a2:(a+d)2, and thus (2).
The light stopped by the opaque parts of the grating, together with that distributed in the central image and lateral spectra, ought to make up the brightness that would be found in the central image, were all the apertures transparent.
Babinet, the brightness of a lateral spectrum is not affected by an interchange of the transparent and opaque parts of the grating.
If we now suppose half the grating cut away, so as to leave 1000 lines in half an inch, the dispersion will not be altered, while the brightness and resolving power are halved.
Such a conclusion would be in the face of the principle of energy, which teaches plainly that the retardation in question leaves the aggregate brightness unaltered.
This was first suggested by Thomas Young, who showed that the rays producing the bows consisted of two systems, which, although emerging in parallel directions, traversed different paths in the drop. Destructive interference between these superposed rays will therefore occur, and, instead of a continuous maximum illumination in the direction of minimum deviation, we should expect to find alternations of brightness and darkness.
The brightness of the image is sometimes in creased by silvering the glass; and on removing a small portion of the silver the observer can Object see the image with part of the pupil while he sees the paper through the unsilvered aperture with the remaining part.
The disk 32 operates the wire gauze screens for equalizing the brightness of the two stars under observation.
Dr Chase's measures with the Yale heliometer indicated for it, in 1894, a parallax of about o" ï¿½ 035; 2 and it must, accordingly, be of nearly four times the total brightness of Sirius, while its aerial lustre exceeds seventyfold that of the solar photosphere.
26, for "in our image" certainly suggests a being equal in brightness and in capacities to the angels - a view which, as we know, became the favourite one in apocryphal and Haggadic descriptions of the Adam before the Fall.
With the first instrument of this kind, having objectives of 1 5 inch aperture, he measured the brightness of 4260 stars, including all stars down to the 6th magnitude between the North Pole and - 30° declination.
That this should have been due to the process of dissipation does not seem possible in so short a period; we must therefore consider either that the earlier accounts are greatly exaggerated, or that the brightness of the comet is subject to changes from some unknown cause.
It is much shorter than the typical instruments described, so that the maximum brightness of image is obtained.
When dressed and dyed they should have regular, close and bright curl, varying from a small to a very large one, and if of equal size, regularity, tightness and brightness, the value is comparatively a matter of fancy.
The extent to which it renders aurora invisible depends, however, so much on the natural brightness of the aurora - which depends on the time and the place - and on the sharpness of the outlook kept, that it is difficult to gauge it.
In auroral displays the brightness often varies greatly over the illuminated area and changes rapidly.
At Jan Mayen (8) in 1882-1883 a scale was employed running from 1, taken as corresponding to the brightness of the milky way, to 4, corresponding to full moonlight.
The halo diminishes in brightness from the centre outwards, and is probably due to the diffraction of light.
This scene has all the happy brightness of the early Galilean ministry which St Mark records.
Notwithstanding this difference in the brightness of the objects, we were able with this reflecting telescope to see whatever we have hitherto discovered with the Huygenian, particularly the transits of Jupiter's satellites and their shadows over his disk, the black list in Saturn's ring, and the edge of his shadow cast on his ring.
Early in May, the oaks, hickories, maples, and other trees, just putting out amidst the pine woods around the pond, imparted a brightness like sunshine to the landscape, especially in cloudy days, as if the sun were breaking through mists and shining faintly on the hillsides here and there.
It is, however, not a mere coincidence that the two great kabbalistic text-books, the Bahir and the Zohar (both meaning "brightness"), appear first in the 13th century.
Under these conditions there is no doubt that the star would appear to be fairly resolved, since the brightness of its external ring system is too small to produce any material confusion, unless indeed the components are of very unequal magnitude.
I can almost think I see you with your father and mother and little sister, with all the brightness of the beautiful country about you, and it makes me very glad to know how glad you are.
