        For the past few years astronomer Don Winget has been using the Z Machine, the world's largest x-ray generator, to create white dwarf "star stuff" here on earth. When he put a photograph of the Z Machine up on the projector in his Astronomy 301 course, it inspired fine arts student Leah Flippen to begin a painting of the same name. In this video Winget and Flippen talk about the machine, the painting, and the interplay between science and art. For more on Winget's work with the Z Machine, see http://web5.cns.utexas.edu/news/2012/08/white-dwarfs-in-the-desert/

          On 14–16 December 2012, the Geminid meteor shower made a spectacular appearance over ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile. As the meteors showered down over the site, ESO Photo Ambassador Gianluca Lombardi was ready with his camera to record the spectacle. He spent over 40 hours recording the shower. The Geminids is a shower of shooting stars appearing to emanate from within the constellation of Gemini (The Twins). This shower occurs when the Earth cuts through the orbit of an asteroid named 3200 Phaethon, which happens once each year, in December. Particles in the trail of dust along the orbit of Phaethon burn up in our atmosphere, creating the brilliant, fast-moving points of light characteristic of meteor showers.

              February 14th ♡ 2013 The newly upgraded laser (PaRLa) at ESO's Paranal Observatory (Chile) emerges form UT4, one of the four 8.2m telescopes (VLT) and shoot at stars and galaxies. Adaptive Optics (AO, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adaptive_optics) allows to measure and compensate (with a deformable mirror) in real time (about 100 to 1000 times per second) the distortions created by the Earth's atmosphere. By removing (partly) the effect of the atmospheric turbulence, one can observe almost as if this huge telescope were in space, getting images and spectra with exquisite spatial resolution. Laser guide stars (LGS) provide a way to measure the wavefront when no bright enough star is available along the line of sight (usually when away from the Milky way's plane). This mini time lapse is made of 200 consecutive shots (almost 3 hours). The music is the beginning of "la nébuleuse acidulée" performed in 2003 by Trio Acidulé. © Julien Girard http://www.sc.eso.org/~jgirard ESO Photo Ambassadors http://www.eso.org/public/outreach/partnerships/photo-ambassadors.html

                Hi, I’m Carolyn Collins Petersen, your stargazing guide. February skies bring some interesting constellations to explore, plus the planets and Moon. No matter where you do your stargazing from, be sure and dress for the weather. And, bring along a pair of binoculars or a small telescope to enhance your view.

                      The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), an international partnership of Europe, North America and East Asia in cooperation with the Republic of Chile, is the largest astronomical project in existence. ALMA will be a single telescope of revolutionary design, composed initially of 66 high precision antennas located on the Chajnantor plateau, 5000 meters altitude in northern Chile.
