Astronomers hope that in March 2013 the comet C/2011 L4 will be visible to the naked eye.
Even if the convergence of the comet C/2011 L4 with the Earth will not be very spectacular event, many of us are also hoping that in this near-solar comet will be visible even from the non-professional lenses, and if you are very lucky, and the naked eye.Comet C/2011 L4 is a non-periodic comet. There is a small chance that it could become a great comet, when it will be near perihelion in March 2013.Comet C/2011 L4 was opened on 6 June 2011, with the telescope Pan-STARRS, located near the summit of Haleakala Read more [...]

U.S. probe "Cassini" discovered on Saturn unusual giant hurricane, which is a huge ring, encircling the planet, making it similar to the mythical Ouroboros snake biting its own tail, say astronomers in a paper in the journal Icarus."This storm with its thunder and lightning was a true giant. Hurricane did not abate for a long time, its" head "continued to rage within 201 days. Each day the storm is passed through such a quantity of air, the atmosphere of the Earth would have been completely devastated in 150 days if this cataclysm happened on this planet, "- said Kunio Read more [...]

2013 promises to please astronomers and anyone interested in the stars, the present crop of comets. There will be more than 2007. Recall in 2007 is considered the most generous in the spectacle of this kind. In 2007, the world watched Comet McNaught (C/2006 P1), also known as the Great Comet of 2007. It was the brightest comet in 40 years. Comet opened August 7, 2006 British-Australian astronomer Robert McNaught, was subsequently named in his honor. Residents of the southern hemisphere admired her huge, unusual in form tail in early January 2007. Comet McNaught was also the most photogenic Read more [...]
Astronomers have discovered the first case of the appearance of dark spots on the star because of the actions of circulating around the so-called hot Jupiter. Scientists using the Kepler space telescope observed the change in luminosity HAT-P-7? star located at a distance of 1044 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus. Drawn to the short distance from her considerable size exoplanet HAT-P-7b its gravitational pull pulls on some of the substance from the surface of the luminary. As a result, it is removed from the center of the heated, cooled, and there is a dark spot. Preprint Read more [...]
Astronomers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have reported finding unusual young star, which, in fact, may be the two stars orbiting each other at very close range.The observations were made with the Spitzer Space Telescope in infrared light. Scientists follow the object, designated LRLL 54,361, for several years. During this time, was revealed an interesting pattern: every day 25.34 object became 10 times brighter. According to researchers, most likely, this is due to the gravitational influence of the companion star, which temporarily inhibits getting to the central star of gas and Read more [...]

South Korean group of researchers from the observatory Eso published in the journal Nature a new method by which they measured a giant black hole in the galaxy NGC 4526. According to Frankfurter Rundschau, the mass of the space object was equal to the mass of 500 million Suns."As the" weights "astronomers used the movement of the molecular gas, in this case, carbon monoxide, moving around the black hole. On motion of gas clouds can measure the force of gravity of the black hole, and from it to determine the mass" - says the publication.The article notes that earlier scholars Read more [...]
on August 25. August 23, 2012 in Taiwan evacuated 5 thousand residents as a precaution before impact of Typhoon \"Tembin\". As reported by the military representative, such action is necessary to avoid such fatal accident 3 years ago, when Typhoon \"Morakot\" took the lives of over 600 people in August 2009.
\"Evacuations occurred in low-lying regions or areas most susceptible to landslides. It also means that the population will not be caught off guard,\" says the representative of the Ministry of defence, David Lo.When approaching Typhoon, local government in the East, South and centre of Read more [...]
When you look at the planets in our solar system, including Saturn stands out with its bright rings. True, astronomers still can not say for sure, with what this brilliance connected ...Ring has many planets in our system. Except that they are not nearly as shiny as Saturnian, and the mass difference will not help. Indeed, the main rings sparkle comes from particles of water ice (90% of the particles) with their extremely high albedo. However, if you often travel by car on the Russian roads, you probably noticed: the ice is rarely long stays clean. In the rings of Jupiter and Neptune (and Read more [...]

on August 23. Hurricanes are one of the most destructive forces of nature. But environmentalists are working to tame this terrible element. Scientists suggest to use for these purposes seeding clouds - this will lower the water temperature on the surface of the sea, where hurricanes are formed. Calculations show that this should reduce the intensity of a hurricane on an entire category.It is known that hurricanes draw their strength from the heat of the water. If you increase the amount of light reflected from the clouds, the element will not get enough energy. Instead of directly affect Read more [...]
