    • Science Bulletins: Backyard Astronomers Are Pros at Observing Jupiter

      Jupiter’s enormous size and gravitational attraction increase its vulnerability to comet and asteroid impacts. But collisions flare and fade quickly; unless they’re viewed at the moment of impact, they won’t be seen at all. Thanks to the efforts of amateur astronomers, dramatic impacts on Jupiter were recently captured on video, one of many important scientific contributions made by backyard stargazers.

        A survey of the oldest objects in the Universe has revealed a multitude of dwarf galaxies that are producing stars at a dizzying pace. Using the infrared vision of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers concentrated on two regions, observing 69 galaxies brimming with stars. The latest Astro Bulletin from the Museum's Science Bulletins program showcases this unexpected discovery, which may lead astronomers to reevaluate current theories about how galaxies evolve. View the story in AMNH's Hall of the Universe until December 21, 2011 or online.

          Sometimes two telescopes are better than one. Data gathered by the European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory and NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope have provided astronomers with an extraordinary view of young stars' growing pains. Combining two types of infrared vision revealed previously undetected bursts of stellar activity, with much faster cycles of heating and cooling than expected. The observations provide important data, which will help astronomers more fully understand the stages of developing stars.

          • Science Bulletins: Sun-Like Star May Host Several Planets

            A telescope searching for interplanetary systems has detected a large gap in the dust disk around a young star, which could indicate the presence of multiple planets. The star is similar in size to our own Sun. Studying early-stage extrasolar planets and their host stars helps scientists to understand the formation of solar systems—including our own.

              The icy South Pole desert is a harsh and desolate landscape in which few life-forms can flourish. But the extreme cold and isolation are perfect for astronomical observations. Taking advantage of the severe conditions, scientists are using the new South Pole Telescope—the largest ever deployed in Antarctica—to observe the oldest light in the Universe, the cosmic microwave background (CMB).

For reasons researchers do not understand, the rate of midnight fireballs increases during the weeks around the vernal equinox. It's a beautiful display, but where do they come from? NASA's growing network of fireball cameras is scanning the heavens for answers.
