The Northern Hemisphere’s full Hunter’s Moon for 2016 falls the nights of October 15 and 16. We will begin with solar observation at 5pm then transition to star and planet viewing just after sunset. Do the changes in light values correlate with the numbers of visible stars during each lunar phase? A. follow the application link to a PDF file of our Application on line.

Jet stream – a high-speed, wandering wind current in the upper troposphere that blows from west to east and affects weather Kelvin – a unit of temperature equal to one degree on the Celsius scale and 1.8 degrees on the Fahrenheit scale; also the absolute temperature scale defined so that 0 kelvin is absolute zero. The Sun is the nearest star to the Earth and is a big ball of gas giving off heat and light. The numerous inscriptions found at Metsamor include designs for the constellations Taurus, Capricorn, Aries and Leo.

Occasionally, the camp leaders will take the whole group on a trip, or various trips, to a planetarium to reinforce what they have learned. That means that a star that is very luminous is very bright. But we'll learn about what's really going on, plus do hands-on science... After reading about the moon and stars, tracking the lunar cycle, making models of the constellations, and going outside for some good old fashioned star gazing with a modern technological twist, they’re probably begging for a visit to your nearest planetarium or observatory.

The delight of discovery is often infectious. After a few days, they will notice that the shape of the moon is changing. In Q1 2017 Ex-Alta 1 will be deployed from the NanoRacks deployer on the ISS to begin its mission at an altitude of 400km. These courses are designed to look at the whole sky using the naked eye. As far back as before the times of Christ, the wise and thinking people of societies of the time were looking at the stars and finding ways to track and chart them.

The most enigmatic of all of the Mayan contributions to astronomy is their calendar, a complex system of interlocking cycles that keep time even more accurately than our own. The discoverer will also have the privilege of naming the particle! Gravitational attraction holds the planets in their elliptical orbits around the Sun. TASOS members are given priority to register for the trip.

Albert Lim and Ang Poon Seng brought along the Society’s Giant binoculars and the Celestron Nexstar 8 SE computerized telescope. Only 10% of gamma-ray sources are non-transient sources. In 1917, Shapley estimated the distance between the Sun and the centre of our galaxy at 10 kiloparsecs i.e., in miles, circa the figure 2 followed by 17 zeros. Will it be bigger, brighter, more colorful? Powerful gamma rays can, however be detected by the large air showers they produce, and the study of cosmic rays can also be regarded as a branch of astronomy.

Then, other interested people can share ideas, skills, or time to address the question. Deep-sky objects might be shown in the sky using actual photographs, artistic renderings or symbols assigned to the object type. Fork mount – an equatorial mount in which the telescope swings in declination between the two prongs of a fork.

I have read it through five or six times, each time with increasing admiration. Hi Jennifer – we’ve also had a plethora of visible stars in the sky this past week. Detection of gamma-ray emission at a line energy of 511,000 eV, which corresponds to the annihilation of electrons and positron s (the antimatter counterpart of electrons), along with radio mapping of a region no more than 20 AU across, points to a very compact and energetic source, designated Sagittarius A*, at the centre of the galaxy (see Sagittarius A ).

Classification is not a big deal when you are working with hundreds of extrasolar planets or thousands of supernovas, but it becomes hugely complicated when you are trying to make sense of billions of objects. Expectations were high as the orbiting telescope was put in place and actually began to function as it was designed to do.
