Quick guide to the astronomy events to observe over the next few months. Farewell Frank Drake, Artemis 1 delays, and monthly round up with @AwesomeAstroPod
How big is the Sun? How do we know? How does it compare to the planets in our solar system and other stars in the galaxy? What’s the fate of the Sun?
Today at #365DaysOfAstro, @cheapastro questions some questions. Do we have the ability to measure the exact amount of heat arriving at the Earth from the Sun? & If we want a lunar orbiting space station, couldn’t we just send the ISS there?
We’ve always assumed that we lived in a perfectly normal star system with a normal star and normal planets. It’s all… normal. But with our modern understanding of billions of stars, just how normal is our Sun, anyway?
It’s Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and that means the Sun is back. But it’s more than just a free heat lamp for your garden, it’s an incredible, dynamic nuclear reaction complete with flares, coronal mass ejections, twisting magnetic fields and the solar wind
Time for weekly update with @WSHcrew. We have space lettuce, space force, some part in Milky Way is older, most distant star, and hires solar image. Also discussion with Dwight Steven-Boniecki
ESA’s Solar Orbiter and NASA’s Parker Solar Probe will measure the Sun from every angle up close, providing detailed images and insights of our closest star, to help understand how it creates and controls the giant bubble of plasma that surrounds the entire Solar System.
How the Sun’s Local Bubble Drives Nearby Star Formation? @WSHCrew discuss this topic with Michael Foley. And weekly update. Parker photo of Venus, dead planets crashing into dead stars, SpaceX lost 40 StarLinks and more at #365DaysOfAstro
Once again, it’s time to take a look at the Sun. You know, ongoing thermonuclear explosion of fusing hydrogen that’s right over there. Fortunately, there’s a fleet of spacecraft and ground observatories ready to give our best ever view of the Sun, so we can watch it.
Where is the edge of our Solar System? Or better yet, let’s say where is the outermost boundary of the Solar System?
