The STEREO spacecraft is scientists’ latest mission to study the Sun and space weather – not clouds and rain, but how solar storms change conditions in space and on Earth. The easiest way to reinforce lessons learned in teaching astronomy to children is to make astronomy a part of your everyday life. Fabian has also pioneered our understanding of cooling flows of gas in massive elliptical galaxies and clusters of galaxies.

Do you have a telescope but don't really know how to use it properly and need some friendly advice? MicroFUN is an informal consortium of observers dedicated to photometric monitoring of interesting microlensing events in the Galactic Bulge. There is evidence that the Mayans thought of the Pleiades as being the center of the layer of fixed stars, rather than Polaris, around which the rest of the sky seemingly revolves. Man owes that advantage to the power of the instrument he employs, and to the small number of relations that it embraces in its calculations.

Visual magnitude measures only the visible light from the object. Most of these objects cool rapidly in the Earth's atmosphere and solidify to a glassy state. We’ll also hear a few moments of Bill Nye’s session at the annual gathering as he hosted Bernard Foing and Amy Mainzer. I can’t really help you with the second question, but for the first question, we can explore all the close stars to Earth. Common targets of amateur astronomers include the Moon, planets, stars, comets, meteor showers, and a variety of deep-sky objects such as star clusters, galaxies, and nebulae.

Include the X-Y axes, the Main Sequence diagonal, the Red Giants and Red Supergiants, and the White Dwarfs. Readers also learn about the significance of solar storms, the Southern Lights, what people thought about auroras in the past, and how they are explored today. At Intellego Unit Studies, we believe in the varied learning styles and multiple intelligences of every child. Then just look for the Bad Astronomy link. The Earth's atmosphere prevents much of the spectrum of radiation from reaching the Earth's surface - which is, of course, fortunate for humankind - but means astronomers have to send telescopes into space to sample the sky at X-ray wavelengths, for example.
