In poetry:

Showers yet must fall, and waters grow
Dark-wan with furrowing blast;
But suns will shine, and soft winds blow,
Till the year flowers at last.

The eyelids of the morning yet shall mark
Against the East the shining of his face,
At peace upon the lighted place.

And then in flocks,
In dell and dingle

Make mist for the golden cowslip tapers
To shine like sunrise through morning vapours.

Within the lap of death sleeps well at last,
Down the dark road, seeking the deathless dead,
Thy faithful, fearless, shining soul hath passed.

still nameless and gleaming like water,
I will name after you at the altar,
which is blazing brightly from your hair
and braided gently with your breasts.

In science:

If the sun shines upon the simple random walker the first time it is at (x, y ), it is straightforward to check that ERW is at a new point.
Excited Random Walk
The LED, which had a peak wavelength of 420 nm, was placed so as to shine perpendicularly onto a WLS fibre at a variable distance from the end coupled to a PMT.
Development of a compact scintillator hodoscope with wavelength-shifting fibre read-out
Figure 5: evolution of the 2-10 keV luminosity of pulsar wind nebulae as a function of the spindown power. The squares mark the observed values, highlighted in blue when the nebula also shines at TeV energies, and the open diamonds give the toy model predictions if 1% of the spindown power is given to the wind.
The Galactic gamma-ray club
The second update comes from the realization that at any given time, not all knots are shining with peak brightness, so only a fraction of the gas is counted.
The Nova Shell and Evolution of the Recurrent Nova T Pyxidis
First a weak pulse, carrying the information to be stored, shines the storage medium at time t1 .
Revival of Silenced Echo and Quantum Memory for Light
The dominant flux of EUV photons producing the flow is from the diffuse field that shines vertically downward onto the disk at the gravitational radius; therefore, most of the gas is evaporated from this region.
Viscous diffusion and photoevaporation of stellar disks
Assuming that these quasars are shining at their Eddington limit, and are not beamed or lensed∗, their BH masses are inferred to be M• ≈ 4 × 109 M⊙ .
The First Nonlinear Structures and the Reionization History of the Universe
Even at moderate redshifts, they already greatly out-shine the host galaxies.

The UrQMD calculations are presented for the systems and energies which are planned to be studied in the NA61/SHINE experiment at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron.
Testing new strongly intensive measures of transverse momentum fluctuations
Lbol are not affected by extinction, i.e. the observed optical luminosity at rest frame 0.51 µm for type 1 AGN shines past dust clouds with no interruption, then the ratio LI R/Lbol is also a measure of the fraction of primary radiation intercepted by dust clouds in directions outside the observer’s line of sight.
Infrared Classification and Luminosities For Dusty AGN and the Most Luminous Quasars
In fact, at GeV energies, a large number of mid-age SNRs has been discovered, while only a small fraction of them shines at TeV energies.
TeV Astronomy
Consider shining a coherent beam of partons onto a target at rest and let zi & bi be the fraction of the total beam energy carried by parton i and its position in the plane transverse to its direction of travel respectively.

Colour Deconfinement and J/Psi Suppression in High Energy Nuclear Collisions
In the vicinity of the critical temperature TC a hadron gas was shown to “shine” as brightly (or even brighter than) a QGP [346]. A finite baryochemical potential yields at constant energy density a reduced multiplicity of direct photons from a QGP [355, 356].
Signatures of Quark-Gluon-Plasma formation in high energy heavy-ion collisions: A critical review
The characteristic phonon wavelength at 100 mK is 300 nm ; since the surfaces of the coated G-10 tubes exhibit specular reflection of optical wavelengths (λ ∼ 500 nm, observed by shining a lamp on the surface), the superfluid phonons should also reflect specularly.
