Scientists need your help to find and mark ‘fans’ and ‘blotches’ on the Martian surface, features that indicate wind direction and speed. This is the new Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) 1 meter telescope. North Country high school students have the opportunity to earn White Mountains Community College credit taking courses taught at their high school during the regular school day. I prefer apps that allow both opaque and transparent ground.

A short talk on choosing and using a telescope, followed by either stargazing outside or, if conditions aren't favourable, we'll talk about space probes, in particular New Horizons. Astronomy, a natural science, is the study of celestial objects (such as stars, galaxies, planets, moons, asteroids, comets and nebulae ) and processes (such as supernovae explosions, gamma ray bursts, and cosmic microwave background radiation ), the physics, chemistry, and evolution of such objects and processes, and more generally all phenomena that originate outside the atmosphere of Earth.

The galaxy revolves on its own axis which is its centre with the result that the Sun revolves around the same centre in a circular orbit. The turbo-Brayton cryocooler produced by Creare was installed on the HST in March 2002.

The age of Vesta’s surface is really important to know, because it was probably one of the very first objects to fully form in the solar system. The Astro Drone game is part of a scientific crowdsourcing project. This self-supporting, non-profit program continues to thrive and inspire new groups of students as well as individuals. Just about every astronomer out there is going to have a sidereal clock to use while they are star gazing. Elliptical galaxies are more commonly found at the core of galactic clusters, and may have been formed through mergers of large galaxies.
