Apogee is the point in the orbit of an object (moon, satellite, etc…) orbiting the earth that is at the greatest distance from the center of the earth. Chart a star over several years and you repeat an experiment the Metsamorians did 4000 years ago. Notice triangles, curves and straight lines of stars.

Learning about the solar system, outer space planets and space crafts might not be exciting for everyone. As the Earth moves in its orbit, the placement of the stars in the sky appears to move. Archeologists thought the stones were simply placed around the circa 3000-2000 BCE graves located nearby as monuments. Our October general meeting will feature a presentation by club member and Board of Directors member Taylor Cramer who will share photos and stories from his recent visit to the Carl G.

Gianna Iannucci, Mercy Science teacher, and Mrs. So, the Global Telescope Network has been assembled to make observations in the optical range to complement the observations by space-borne observatories. Shattuck, Dartmouth class of 1803, who stipulated that the Trustees match the gift with an additional $4,000. But they were keen observers of the sky and tried very hard to make sense of it. Many more stars are seen with binoculars, and they have a positive side that mounted telescopes do not: they are easier to carry from place to place.

Our 2016 “Public Observing Night” Season at Beaver Meadow Observatory ended with our last public night on October 1st. Many of the Bible’s statements about astronomy went against the generally accepted teachings of the past. I think every astronomer owes it to him- or herself to do some empirical research.) Michael also runs the MoonPhases.info site mentioned below. Most make only a single pass through the inner solar system, but some are deflected by Jupiter or Saturn into orbits that allow them to return at predictable times.

TASOS organized a star party cum astronomy talk on 25th Aug 2012 Saturday evening for members of Marina at Keppel Bay. UNH’s High Energy Astrophysics research group does do astrophysical research, but uses a telescope (COMPTEL) on an orbiting satellite – the Gamma Ray Observatory. Two handsome National Historic Landmark buildings and the beautiful grounds provide a serene, park-like setting while still being centrally located in the city of Cincinnati. Despite the information you can get from these stargazing apps, at the end of the night, all we want is to gaze at stars.

Chinese records of the guest star that we now call Comet Halley can be traced back to 240 BCE and possibly as early as 1059 BCE. Its enormous 100-meter diameter collecting area, its unblocked aperture, and its excellent surface accuracy provide unprecedented sensitivity across the telescope's full 0.1 - 116 GHz (3.0m - 2.6mm) operating range.

As in most ancient cultures, astronomy was actually practiced as astrology. You can see the updated location map in our CONTACT US section. Any star of average to low brightness, mass, and size. Members of the Cambridge Astronomical Association also set up modern telescopes on the observatory lawns, with video projection facility and expert commentary.
