A cinder of sidereal fire,
And make her translunary guest
The native of an English shire.

With her parasol, down by the off-sider's collar,
Until she contrives to catch hold of the reins.

In science:

My task is to sketch (in more detail than Sider does) the “functional role” of persistence, the web of belief in which it is embedded.
On the Persistence of Homogeneous Matter
My comment on Sider’s position is now obvious.

At this conference, Walsworth describes an experiment with hydrogen masers that places a bound of 0.7 mHz on the magnitude of sidereal variations in these frequencies.
Recent results in Lorentz and CPT tests
Gunn et al. 1998) and images the sky by scanning along great circles at the sidereal rate.
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey: Technical Summary
As a result, both the cyclotron and anomaly frequencies have small corrections which cause them to exhibit sidereal time variations.
Electromagnetic Tests of Lorentz and CPT Symmetry
An analysis of this system reveals that in addition to a signal with the period of the rotating turntable, the effects of Lorentz and CPT violation induce additional time variations with a sidereal period caused by Earth’s rotation.
Electromagnetic Tests of Lorentz and CPT Symmetry
The statistical uncertainties of PMM and PK T obtained from the WLS fit above correspond to sidereal and semi-sidereal terms (from (4)) of ≈ 1 × 10−15 and ≈ 6 × 10−16 respectively so any systematic effects exceeding these limits need to be taken into account in the final uncertainty.

This signal indicates a violation of rotation invariance and would commonly manifest itself as either sidereal or annual variations in neutrino flux.
Lorentz violation and neutrinos
So, this simple special case may serve as a test model for searches for sidereal variations in atmospheric neutrinos.
Lorentz violation and neutrinos
In this example, both the unusual energy dependence and the sidereal variations are readily apparent.
Lorentz violation and neutrinos
As the clocks move they pick out different components of the Lorentz violating tensors in the mSME, yielding a sidereal drift between the two clocks.
Modern tests of Lorentz invariance
The magnitude of the sidereal variation ∆fJ is given by 2π |∆fJ | = | − 3.5˜bJ + 0.012( ˜dJ − ˜gD,J )| where J stands for the X,Y components of the Lorentz violating tensors in a non-rotating frame that are orthogonal to the earth’s rotation axis.
