Astronomers have long sought to map the night skies that can help scientists spot broad patterns across a population of objects, put new discoveries such as transient events in the context of their surroundings, and identify the best candidates for focused observations. And here’s The Siena Galaxy Atlas Project.
Today’s NOIRLab Astro discuss about a new supernova event from Luminous Fast Blue Optical Transients class that more powerful than the average supernova.
Magnetars has the record of the strongest magnetic fields of any object. How magnetars form and produce such colossal magnetic fields remains a mystery.
Backyard Worlds Cool Neighbors, enlists the public to help identify brown dwarfs from data taken by the NASA Wide Field Infrared Explorer (WISE) satellite. Today podcast will talk about this new project and how the public can help find these elusive brown dwarfs.
A long hypothesized way for stars to end their lives by collisions of stars or stellar remnants in the densely packed area near a galaxy’s massive black hole. More about the first evidence for this new way for a star to end its life on today’s #365DaysOfAstro with @NOIRLab
The Vera C. Rubin Observatory is currently under construction in Chile and launched their Education And Public Outreach (EPO) program. Today, Stephanie Deppe discuss about Rubin EPO program with @halfastro at #365DaysOfAstro
When a Sun-like star nears the end of its life and eventually engulfing the system’s inner planets. Today podcast will discuss about how astronomers caught one in the act.
Galaxies grow through mergers with other galaxies. Using the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) astronomers have studied the merger history of the Andromeda Galaxy for the first time. So today we will learn about the immigration history of the Andromeda Galaxy.
Kilonova form when two neutron stars collide. They were first discovered by their gravitational wave emissions. Today we discuss about the discovery of a system that will become a kilonova in the future.
Light pollution has been impacting our view of the heavens for many years and @GlobeatNight data shows the night sky is brightening more than previously thought based on satellite measurements.
