Watch “Hesperus” on YouTube

Can’t get enough of this band over the last three years.

Hesperus is the Evening Star (Venus in the night sky).

Vesper is his Roman counterpart.

The Greeks thought Hesperus to be half-brother to Phosphorus (aka Eosphorus < see reference and sense as used in discussions of the philosophy of language>).

Phosphorus was the Morning Star (Venus in morning sky).

Hesperus is Phosphorus. A statement of historical and philosophical significance.

Neither are stars but rather both are one planet- Venus.

The Greeks mistook morning Venus for a separate celestial body than that of evening Venus.

This Greek Wandering Star (actually a planet) is the correspondant of the Roman Venus. During the Hellenistic era, Venus and Aphrodite were syncretized into the goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation.

New to the world of blogging, I have always been fascinated by the scientific endeavor and I read about or engage with those processes as much as possible. I am a compulsive reader and writer (predominately non-fiction and scholarly work) With a background in anthropology and as an arm-chair/backyard scientist, I hope to improve my writing skills and learn about any areas of weakness or misunderstanding in my analytic skills. I want to improve and am particularly interested in science blogging and creating science content as a freelancer. I work for a wonderful company procuring high asset/risk insurance coverage for niche businesses and professionals, not fitting typical underwriting models as a day job. I am excited to share my journey through scientific discussion, essays, how to's, technical papers, creative non-fiction, with some free verse prose thrown in for my own fun. Thank you for spending time here. Please reach out if you are so inclined. I'd be excited to hear from you.
