Astro Practical Astronomy |

on Fri Jan 22, 2016 12:07 pm
* about Practical Astronomy

We prefer the term "Practical" Astronomy  , instead of
"amateur" astronomy , (You can learn everything by 
yourself & I am completely Self Taught - "Self Learning" 
can have the meaning of a personal , voluntary , 
self-motivated ,asocial and ongoing pursuit of knowledge
of the best kind But "amateur" means usually "inexperienced"
& "unskillful". Secondly amātor is the Latin for lover.
Lets be serious here .. You don't have to "love" anything.
"Love is for amateurs")

Astro KIC 8462852

on Sat Aug 06, 2016 6:00 am
KIC 8462852 FADED THROUGHOUT THE KEPLER MISSION

 Subject headings: stars: individual (KIC 8462852), stars: variables: general, circumstellar matter,
techniques: photometric, methods: data analysis.


Photometry of KIC8462852 as measured by Kepler data.

ABSTRACT KIC 8462852 is a superficially ordinary main sequence F star for which Kepler detected an unusual series of brief dimming events.
We obtain accurate relative photometry of KIC 8462852 from the Kepler full frame images, finding that the brightness of KIC 8462852 monotonically
decreased over the four years it was observed by Kepler. Over the first ∼ 1000 days, KIC 8462852 faded approximately linearly at a rate of 0.341 ±
0.041% yr−1 , for a total decline of 0.9%. KIC 8462852 then dimmed much more rapidly in the next ∼ 200 days, with its flux dropping by more than
2%. For the final ∼ 200 days of Kepler photometry the magnitude remained approximately constant, although the data are also consistent with the
decline rate measured for the first 2.7 yr. Of a sample of 193 nearby comparison stars and 355 stars with similar stellar parameters, 0.6% change
brightness at a rate as fast as 0.341% yr−1 , and none exhibit either the rapid decline by > 2% or the cumulative fading by 3% of KIC 8462852. We
examine whether the rapid decline could be caused by a cloud of transiting circumstellar material, finding while such a cloud could evade detection
in sub-mm observations, the transit ingress and duration cannot be explained by a simple cloud model. Moreover, this model cannot account for the
observed longer-term dimming.No known or proposed stellar phenomena can fully explain all aspects of the observed light curve.

Astro Pluto's Sputnik Planum

on Tue Dec 06, 2016 7:20 pm
Pluto's Sputnik Planum 



Code:
Explanation: Is there an ocean below Sputnik Planum on Pluto? The unusually smooth 1000-km wide golden expanse, visible in the from New Horizons, appears segmented into convection cells. But how was this region created? One hypothesis now holds the answer to be a great impact that stirred up an underground ocean of salt water roughly 100-kilometers thick. The featured image of Sputnik Planum, part of the larger heart-shaped Tombaugh Regio, was taken last July and shows true details in exaggerated colors. Although the robotic New Horizons spacecraft is off on a new adventure, continued computer-modeling of this surprising surface feature on Pluto is likely to lead to more refined speculations about what lies beneath.

Astro Four Planets Orbiting Star HR 8799

Four Planets Orbiting Star HR 8799

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=Zg9Y4g4e1mU
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86ol9--ja_8

The images for the video were taken over seven years from the Keck Observatory in Hawaii.
Four exoplanets appear as white dots partially circling their parent star, purposefully occluded
in the center. The central star HR 8799 is slightly larger and more massive than our Sun, while
each of the planets is thought to be a few times the mass of Jupiter. The HR 8799 system lies
about 130 light years away toward the constellation of Pegasus.

Astro The Mysterious Rings of Supernova 1987A

on Sun Mar 05, 2017 5:33 pm


http://www.spacetelescope.org/images/potw1142a/
Dominating this picture are two glowing loops of stellar material and a very bright ring surrounding
the dying star at the centre of the frame.  Although Hubble has provided important clues on the
nature of these structures, their origin is still largely unknown.
The supernova belongs to the Large Magellanic Cloud, a nearby galaxy about 168 000 light-years away.
Even though the stellar explosion took place around 166 000 BC, its light arrived here less than 25 years ago.
This picture is based on observations done with the High Resolution Channel of Hubble’s Advanced Camera for
Surveys. The field of view is approximately 25 by 25 arcseconds.

Astro Approaching the NGC 7635

on Sat May 27, 2017 5:00 pm

Approaching the NGC 7635
NGC 7635 is a H II region emission nebula in the constellation Cassiopeia created by
the stellar wind from a massive hot, 8.7 magnitude young central star, SAO 20575
(BD+60°2522) . It was discovered in 1787 by William Herschel.

Astro Saturn

on Fri Sep 15, 2017 2:00 am
https://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/

On Sept. 15, 2017, the spacecraft will make its final approach to the giant planet Saturn. Cassini will dive into the planet’s atmosphere, sending science data for as long as its small thrusters can keep the spacecraft’s antenna pointed at Earth. Soon after, Cassini will burn up and disintegrate like a meteor.
Launched on Oct. 15, 1997, the mission entered orbit around Saturn on June 30, 2004 (PDT), carrying the European Huygens probe. After its four-year prime mission, Cassini’s tour was extended twice. Its key discoveries have included the global ocean with indications of hydrothermal activity within Enceladus, and liquid methane seas on Titan.
"The spacecraft's final signal will be like an echo. It will radiate across the solar system for nearly an hour and a half after Cassini itself has gone."
