The World is a complex place; with many moving parts that we still, to this day, do not understand. One of the reasons, is due to The World constantly changing on the Microscale to The Macroscale. Some Macroscale things include The Ice Age ceases to be, an Asteroid hitting The Earth and wiping out The Dinosaurs and Pangea splitting into Today's World's continents. Some of the microscale things include, it raining, it snowing, heat waves and hurricanes; things living and things dying; and the changes in, The Seasons!
The Four Seasons are Spring, Summer, Autumn/Fall & Winter. These changes may be micro in scale, but for our livelihoods, its colossal! The Seasons determine wide variety of our own human behavior. These things include when we plant, when we harvest, when wear light vs heavy clothing, what type of beverages we drink, how we celebrate our holidays and alot more! The Seasons in our lives, are indeed, Macroscale.
Spring is considered to be The Season of Aloha. The Season where life sprouts into Creation and new things are made. Plants rise from the ground and animals are born. Spring is a time of warmth and rain, of sunshine and of jovial being. Spring in The Northern Hemisphere is from March 20th to June 20th and September 21st to December 21st in The Southern Hemisphere. Spring is The Aloha Season!
Summer is the time of heat, of melting, of beaches and vacation, the time to have a blast and kick back. Summer is hot, there is no denial of that fact. Summer in The Northern Hemisphere begins on June 21st and Ends on September 21st. On The Southern Hemisphere, Summer begins on December 21st and End on March 20th.
Autumn or Fall in some places, is the season of cooling down the summer heat, the leaves turn red and fall; the time for pumpkin is here. It's a time of coziness and beauty. Autumn in The Northern Hemisphere begins on September 22nd and Ends on December 20th. In The Southern Hemisphere Fall begins on March 20th and ends on June 20th.
Winter, is cold and icy. The Snow is intense and the ice is solid as rock. Things die and hibernate and growing crops is as easy as jumping to the moon. Winter in The Northern Hemisphere begins on December 21st and Ends on March 19th. In The Southern Hemisphere, Winter begins on June 21st and Ends on December 21st.

Alpha Pegasi is the third-brightest star within the Pegasus Constellation. Alpha Pegasi has a mass of 3 Solar Masses, a radius of 4.72 Solar Radiuses and a luminosity of 160 Solar Luminosities. Alpha Pegasi has a surface gravity of 3.51 Centimetre-Gram-Second System of Units and a temperature of 9765 Kelvin. Alpha Pegasi is 133 Light Years from The Sun.
Profile of Alpha Pegasi
Alpha Pegasi has used up its hydrogen core and is beginning it's post main sequence part of its life. This has given it a radius five fold that of The Sun. Alpha Pegasi's Traditional name, Markab is Arabic for the The Saddle of the horse.
Capella, also known as Alhajoth, Hokulei, α Aurigae, 13 Aurigae, ADS 3841, BD+45 1077, CCDM J05168+4559, FK5 193, GC 6427, HD 34029, HIP 24608, HR 1708, IDS 05093+4554, LTT 11619, NLTT 14766, PPM 47925, SAO 40186 and WDS 05167+4600, is a quadruple star system made up of the stars Capella Aa, Capella Ab, Capella H and Capella L, located inside The Auriga Constellation. Capella is the brightest star in THe Auriga Constellation and the sixth brightest star in the night sky. Capella is Latin for Little Goat. Capella is shwoned the goat named Amalthea that suckled The King of The gods Zeus in The Classical World.
Capella Aa has a mass of 2.5687 Solar Masses, a radius of 11.98 Solar Radiuses and a luminosity of 78.7 Solar Luminosities. Capella Aa has a surface gravity of 2.691 Centimetre-Gram-Second System of Units and a Temperature of 4970 Kelvin.
Capella Ab has a mass of 2.4828 Solar Masses, a radius of 8.83 Solar Radiuses and a Luminosity of 72.7 Solar Luminosities. Capella Ab has a surface gravity of 2.941 Centimetre-Gram-Second System of Units and a temperature of 5730 Kelvin.
Capella H, also known as G 96-29, LTT 11622, NLTT 14788, PPM 47938, 2MASS J05172386+4550229, has a mass of 0.57 Solar Masses, a radius of 0.54 Solar Radiuses and a luminosity of 0.05 Solar Luminosities. Capella H has a surface gravity of 4.75 Centimetre-Gram-Second System of Units and a temperature of 3700 Kelvin.
Capella L, also known as VVO 238 and 2MASS J05172394+4550198, has a mass of 0.53 Solar Masses.
Mizar, also known as ζ Ursae Majoris, ζ UMa, Zeta UMa, 79 Ursae Majoris, BD+55 1598, CCDM J13240+5456, HIP 65378 and WDS J13239+5456, is a second magnitude star located inside The Ursa Major Constellation where it lays in the handle of The Big Dipper. Mizar is located 82.9 Light Years from The Sun. Mizar is in fact, a double star and a quadruple star system with its fainter companion star being Alcor and the four stars it's made of being Mizar Aa, Mizar Ab, ζ1 UMa and ζ2 UMa.
Mizar Aa has a mass of 2.2224 Solar Masses, a radius of 2.4 Solar Radiuses and a Luminosity of 33.3 Solar Luminosities. Mizar Aa has a temperature of 9000 Kelvin and is 370 Million Years Old.
Mizar Ab has a mass of 2.2381 Solar Masses, a radius of 2.4 Solar Radiuses and a luminosity of 33.3 Solar Luminosities. Mizar Ab has a temperature of 9000 Kelvin. So Mizar Ab has clone-like stats to that of Mizar Aa all except for the mass.
ζ1 UMa has not many stats but does have many other names. These names are GC 18133, HD 116656, HR 5054, PPM 34007 and SAO 28737.
ζ2 UMa, also known as GC 18134, HD 116657, HR 5055 and SAO 28738, has a surface gravity of 4.40 Centimetre-Gram-Second System of Units and a temperature of 8425 Kelvin.
Profile of Mizar
Mizar is called Vashita in Traditional Indian Astronomy, and in Traditional Chinese Taoism, Mizar is titled The Lu Star.
