The meaning of H-symbols at Gobekli Tepe

The H and I-symbols at Gobekli Tepe are some of the hardest to decipher, and their precise meaning remains obscure. But there are some good clues, which allow a preliminary interpretation.

Let's have a look at all the instances where H and I-symbols occur.

Pillar 33: I-symbols can just be seen at the bottom of the inner face, next to the lower spider. There is also a faint one higher up above the top spider.

Also, there are more I-symbols on the side with the tall bending birds.

Comet

New Comet C/2022 F2 (NEOWISE)

CBET 5113 & MPEC 2022-G83, issued on 2022, April 06, announce the discovery of a comet (magnitude ~17) in infrared exposures obtained during Mar. 30-Apr. 1 UT with the Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (or NEOWISE; formerly the WISE earth-orbiting satellite). The new comet has been designated C/2022 F2 (NEOWISE).

Stacking of 60 unfiltered exposures, 30 seconds each, obtained remotely on 2022, April 3.3 from X02 (Telescope Live, Chile) through a 0.61-m f/6.5 astrograph + CCD, shows that this object is a comet with a central condensation inside a coma of diameter 19" and a hint of a broad tail 13" long in p.a. 283 degrees, with magnitude of 17.5-17.7 in an aperture of radius 5".5 (Observers E. Bryssinck, M. Rocchetto, E. Guido, M. Fulle, G. Milani, G. Savini, A. Valvasori).

Fireball 3

Meteor fireball over the northeast of Spain (May 31)

fireball
This bolide was spotted over Spain on May 31, at 3:00 local time (equivalent to 1:00 universal time). The event was generated by a rock (a meteoroid) from comet 73P that hit the atmosphere at about 64,000 km/h. The fireball overflew the north of Spain. It began at an altitude of about 98 km over the province of Teruel, moved east, and ended at a height of around 75 km over the same province.

This bright meteor was recorded in the framework of the SMART project, operated by the Southwestern Europe Meteor Network (SWEMN) from the meteor-observing stations located at Calar Alto, Sierra Nevada, La Sagra (Granada), Ayora (Valencia), and La Hita (Toledo). The event has been analyzed by the principal investigator of the SMART project: Dr. Jose M. Madiedo, from the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC).

Bright meteor fireball in Puerto Rico 5/28/2022

fireball
It even lit up the clouds...so resplendent was a remarkable bolide (bright meteor) that was seen around 11:45 p.m. on Saturday May 28 from various areas of Puerto Rico.

The Caribbean Astronomy Society (SAC) captured images of the fast meteor and explained that both the witnesses who observed it, as well as one of the SAC's color cameras.

They perceived that the meteor showed a somewhat greenish color, which suggests it was a space rock with metallic content.

The bright meteor was visible looking north and its trajectory moved even further towards the north of the Island, so the possibility that some fragment reached the mainland, since from somewhere to have survived the fragmentation, it must have occurred over the Atlantic Ocean.

fireball
This bolide was spotted over Spain on May 28, at 3:19 local time (equivalent to 1:19 universal time). The fireball was observed by casual eyewitnesses, who reported it on social networks.

The event was generated by a rock (a meteoroid) from a comet that hit the atmosphere at about 56,000 km/h. The fireball overflew the south of Spain. It began at an altitude of about 93 km over the province of Jaén, moved southeast, and ended at a height of around 59 km over the province of Almería.

This bright meteor was recorded in the framework of the SMART project, operated by the Southwestern Europe Meteor Network (SWEMN) from the meteor-observing stations located at Calar Alto, Sierra Nevada, Sevilla, La Sagra (Granada), Huelva, El Aljarafe, and La Hita (Toledo). The event has been analyzed by the principal investigator of the SMART project: Dr. Jose M. Madiedo, from the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC).
