US bombed Nebraska town in 1943

Post by Jupiter Sets at Dawn » Thu Aug 16, 2018 10:21 am

4:30 AM, August 16th, 1943 Tarnov, NE, about 20 miles NW of Columbus, NE.
Tarnov is a tiny town of about 60 people, the same as it was in 1943.
Several US aircraft on a practice run missed their target entirely, and bombed the village instead with seven practice bombs. Although nobody was hurt, a several structures including a couple of homes (where people were sleeping at the time) were left in shambles. The US Government never fully reimbursed the families for the damage to their homes.
Time is from an 88 year old man who was 13 at the time, and whose mother shook him awake after a bomb hit next to the room where he was sleeping.

What a fascinating event!

Year: Capsolar {+2}
(It was the guv'ment!)
Sun on Dsc 2°07'
Jupiter, Neptune & Pluto more widely angular [Pluto op. non-ang Venus]
-- Ju/Pl on Asc 0°23'
Moon-Mercury sq. 2°20'

Bridge

Quarter: Cansolar (Dormant.) Moon-Sun Moon-Mercury.
Quarter: Arisolar (Dormant.) Moon-Mercury.
Month: Caplunar (Dormant.)

Week: Liblunar {+1}
(I'll take this as reflecting luck nobody was hurt!)
Jupiter on Asc 2°15'
Moon on IC 2°55'
-- Moon-Jupiter sq. 0°40' in mundo
Sun & Pluto a little more widely angular
-- Su/Ju on Asc 0°43'
-- Jupiter-Pluto conj. 1°11'

Day: Capsolar Quotidian {+1}
p MC sq. t Jupiter 1°34', s Mercury 1°00'
-- t Jupiter [16:15] op. s Mercury 0°34'
p EP op. s Pluto 0°50', t Pluto 1°49'

Day: Cansolar Quotidian {0}
p Moon op. s Sun 0°13', p Sun 0°18', p Mercury 0°29'


Experimentally and out of curiosity, I'll check some PSSIs (mean rate, approximate method only).

PSSI Capsolar {+1}
p MC sq. s Neptune 0°24'
t Sun sq. p Moon 0°32'

PSSI Cansolar {+3}
p Asc conj. t Pluto 0°14', s Pluto 0°38', s Mars 0°37'
-- t Pluto sq. p Mars 0°51'
p Moon op. s Sun 0°06', p Sun 0°10'; all sq. p MC

PSSI Arisolar {+2}
p MC conj. t Neptune 0°28', s Neptune 0°09'
p Asc op. s Saturn 0°57', maybe t Uranus

Well, gosh, we can use astrology to find out when it occurred, right? We can't use it in our statistics thereafter, but we can have some fun with what we have.

The event occurred "during the Christmas season" in either 1942 or 1943, in Dickens, NE. Let's take an estimated dae of December 21 and see what comes up.

IF IT OCCURRED IN 1942

Year: Capsolar (Dormant.)

Year: Cansolar
This is a quite credible chart for such a year! Mars is 0°41' past Dsc, Saturn 2°24' past IC, and they are in 1°43' mundane square. Moon squares Uranus 1°34'. (Pluto is also foreground.)

Quarter: Libsolar
Moon opposes Pluto 0°13' for the world, and Moon squares Saturn 1°47' in mundo in Nebraska. For Dickens, Neptune is 2°10' from Descendant with Mercury 4°, conjunct Neptune. Confusion, air attack, and the rest.

Month: Caplunar
Moon conjoins Jupiter 0°01' right along the EP axis. All the other (minor) indications are also positive spins. This could be a "nobody got hurt" chart, but there's nothing to actually link it to the event.

Week: Arilunar
But the December 16 Arilunar makes up for that. Mars opposes Uranus (0°38'), with both about 1° from square Ascendant. This is definitely a 'we got bombed" chart!

Day: Capsolar Quotidian
No transits to Capsolar angles occur anywhere near the estimated date except for Neptune's more or less all-year conjunction with a Capsolar angle.

There aren't any days in anything I could consider "the Christmas season" that has angle crossings suggestive of the event.

Day: Cansolar Quotidian & Transits
December 16, the day of the Arilunar, has CanQ Asc conjunct ingress Mars. I think with the lead-in charts being so splendid, there's an excellent chance this was in the week beginning December 16, and perhaps on Wednesday the 16th itself.


IF IT OCCURRED IN 1943

Year: Capsolar
Not a good fit. Sun exactly sets (so, "the guv'ment did it") but with Jupiter and Neptune also foreground and in exact aspect. Doesn't sound like the event. (Moon squares Mercury.)

Bridge

Quarter: Libsolar
There's confusion, and an act of aggression for the whole world, but for Dickens there isn't much that fits. A 0°32' Moon-Mars conjunction is universal. Neptune is exactly on IC. Ah, and Moon is mundanely conjunct Saturn 1°33'. It's fine enough, but not brilliant.

Month: Caplunar (Dormant, and with Moon square Venus.

Week: Canlunar
Moon entered Libra early evening December 21. The Liblunar is dormant so, whether before or after this date, the Canlunar would be the Week chart. It is most marked by a Sun-Saturn opposition along EP axis, with Mars and Uranus setting. It's a credible chart and really the only one of the batch that I'm inclined to take seriously.

There isn't any daily timing to "bring it all home" near these dates.


CONCLUSION
I believe this event occurred in the seven days beginning December 16, 1942.

Heh. Didn't want to ask a sick man, but I was hoping it might look interesting.

These little accidental bombings barely made the news then, and people seemed to just take them in stride. I don't think the same attitude would be found today.
