    An object approaching the observer will have a shorter wavelength blue while an object moving away will have a longer red wavelength. Ulysses discovered the solar wind has a much greater impact on Jupiter's magnetosphere than what was previously suggested. Extragalactic — Beyond the Milky Way galaxy. A planet at greatest eastern elongation is seen in the evening sky and a planet at greatest western elongation will be seen in the morning sky. An active galaxy with very active and highly variable radio, electromagnetic, and optical emissions. Focuser — the device on a telescope that holds an eyepiece and moves to allow an observer to bring light to a sharp focus.

    Standard candle — In astronomy, refers to an object known for its brightness and is sometimes used to determine distances. Aphelion farthest distance from the sun : , miles , km. Just as the nucleus of a comet is tiny compared to the visible parts of the comet the central coma and extended tailsthe Earth is small compared to the size of the magnetosphere. Averted vision — a technique to view faint objects using peripheral vision. Critical density : The density of a pure element or compound at a critical point.

    Globular Cluster a tight, spherical grouping of hundreds of thousands of stars. Tides — Distortion of a body caused by the gravitational influence on another body. Vignetting — Decreased illumination over an image plane in a camera or in some cases a telescope, this causes a distortion close to the edge of an image. Bright objects have a low apparent magnitude while dim objects will have a higher apparent magnitude. Basalt a general term for dark-colored, igneous rocks composed of minerals that are relatively rich in iron and magnesium. It is unclear, lacking copies of any earlier correspondence, whether Castelli was telling Galileo of it for the first time, or responding to Galileo having previously informed him of it.

Aurora Australis also known as the southern lights, this is an atmospheric phenomenon that displays a diffuse glow in the sky in the southern hemisphere. Thermal radiation — Electromagnetic radiation coming from an object that is not at absolute zero.

A bubble of gas that is hotter than its surroundings expands and rises. Adaptive optics — technology used to improve performance of optical systems through the reduction of rapidly changing optical distortion. Our galaxy and the Andromeda galaxy are examples of hypergalaxies.

Winter — Season in the Northern Hemisphere that begins December Stars are massive shining spheres of hot gas that exist in all galaxies across the universe. Atmosphere is also a layer of gases surrounding a planet, moon, or star. It is visible to the naked eye during a solar eclipse.

Gravitational lens — A concentration of matter such as a galaxy or cluster of galaxies that bends light rays from a background object. NGC Objects — deep-sky objects such as galaxies, globular clusters, and nebulae included in the New General Catalogue.

Jupiter: Our Solar System's Largest Planet

Currently, Jupiter's gravitational field influences numerous asteroids that have clustered into the regions preceding and following Jupiter in its orbit around the sun. Why the corona is up to times hotter than the photosphere, despite being farther from the solar core, has remained a long-term mystery.

Elliptical galaxy — A galaxy whose structure is shaped like an ellipse and is smooth and lacks complex structures such as spiral arms. Thus, Adams was able to establish the intrinsic brightness of a star just by looking at its spectrum.

They are caused by the convective motions of the hot gases inside the Sun. Parsec — Distance an object would have to be from earth so that its parallax when seen from two points On the apparent brightness of the earths halo book by 1 AU is equivalent to one arcsecond, equivalent to 3.

Ejecta usually appear lighter in color than the surrounding surface. In addition, power outrages or trippages of electrical equipment were observed as far south as New Mexico. This grouping can be apparent, where the stars seem close together, or physical, such as a binary system.You are studying a star cluster containing stars that all formed at approximately the same time.

After making appropriate measurements and creating an HR diagram for the cluster, you discover that 92 of the stars are main sequence stars, spanning a broad range of surface temperatures from a low of 2, K to a high of 25, K; while the remaining 8 stars all lie above the main sequence on.

Jan 06,  · Here Λ is the apparent (in the plane of the sky) latitude of the streamer belt’s ray or the angle between the aparent image of the ray in the plane of the sky and the equatorial plane.

Λ is positive and negative to the north and south of the equator, respectively. Values of the brightness P are measured in arbitrary units. All stars are made primarily of hydrogen, smaller amounts of helium, and traces of other elements.

The stars we can see with the naked eye in the night sky all belong to the Milky Way Galaxy, the huge system of stars that contains our solar galisend.com contains hundreds of billions of stars, star clusters, and clouds of gas and dust (called nebulae) where stars are born.Sun [1] Of all of the pdf objects, the Sun is the most important to human beings.

Since the dawn of civilization, knowing the daily and annual behavior of the Sun has meant the difference between life and death for people learning when to plant crops and when to harvest.Titanium oxide is a very rare compound which is known to exist in the atmospheres of cool stars.

The 10 Brightest Stars in the Sky

In small quantities, it acts as a heat absorber, and is therefore likely to be partly responsible.Ebook 20,  · On the 16th of last May (), being a very warm day, and during ebook gale of wind from south-west, a cloudless sky, at about 4 O’clock, p.m., the sun became dim, and lost his brightness to that degree, that he could be looked at without inconvenience to the naked eye, (the sun) being of a dark red, or almost bright color, without brilliancy.
