Tuesday October 16 7:00 p.m. Universal time is used by astronomers as a standard measure of time. radiation zones of charged particles that surround the Earth. The planets were formed in the protoplanetary disk that surrounded the early Sun. Meteoritics is the study of the only tangible entities that reach us from outer space -- the meteorites. Some events which are not specifically astronomical in nature are listed to give historical perspective as to what was happening in those times.

When they did that, they could extrapolate to figure out how many really faint galaxies there are at the most distant reaches of space, up to a distance of over 13 billion light years. When the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) in Cerro Pachón, Chile, aims its 3.2- billion-pixel digital camera (the world’s largest) at the night sky in 2019, it will capture an area 49 times as large as the moon in each 15-second exposure, 2,000 times a night. Evidentially so do dung beetles, which also use the Milky Way, according to a new study in Current Biology by Swedish scientist Marie Dacke and collaborators. (Insert your own dung-related joke here.) Dung beetles are important insects who help to break apart the large mounds of dung produced by large animals.

I’ve written about him so much in the past there’s not much I can add right now, so I thought I would simply embed a video for you to watch… but which one? But it appears the probe’s satellite-hunting days aren’t over just yet. The modified inflationary versions are likely more accurate. Here you have the basics of backyard astronomy including the equipment needed.

The prototype Alpha Telescope was developed and will come online as a ground test system. Some theories suggest that local environmental conditions and evolutionary events left to chance will most likely shape the future of any life-form, making it totally unique. “While there are examples for parallel evolution in the terrestrial biosphere—for example, similar eyes evolving in very different, unrelated species—it seems unlikely to me that we would encounter alien life that would be humanoid,” says Apai.

"I find that astronomy is a fascinating subject to work in, because we deal with so many different and exotic objects, yet the field is still small enough that it's possible to have some idea of the big picture. The most recent Martian global dust storm blew up in 2007.

The page has something for all ages of students as well as educators and parents. There have been surveys of black holes in galaxies taken, and, for example, one of them found a handful of UMBHs out of the thousands of galaxies they looked at. A Final Review with fifty questions the student can answer either orally or in writing to show off what he knows about astronomy at the end of the course. The space sector demands a highly skilled workforce. The Kepler project with ASP created the Shadows and Silhouettes kit for amateur astronomers.
