        • Scientists Create the First Weather Map of a Brown Dwarf | ESO Space Science HD

          More space news and info at: http://www.coconutsciencelab.com - the Luhman 16AB brown dwarf system is one of our Sun's closest neighbors. It consists of two brown dwarfs, A and B, which are located six light-years away in the constellation of Vela. Brightness fluctuations were recently recorded of Luhman 16B, using ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT). This data was used to create a map of the brown dwarf's bright and dark surface features - thought to be atmospheric phenomenon such as clouds or weather patterns. The atmospheres of brown dwarfs are thought to be similar to those of hot gas giant exoplanets, so by studying comparatively easy-to-observe brown dwarfs, astronomers can also learn more about the atmospheres of young giant planets.

            This zoom sequence takes us from a wide view of the spectacular southern Milky Way into a closeup view of one of its biggest and rarest stars — the yellow hypergiant star HR 5171. This monster stars has a radius over 1300 times that of the Sun — it is one of the largest ten stars found so far. Observations with ESO’s Very Large Telescope Interferometer have shown that it is actually a double star, with the companion in contact with the main star.

            • late night in paris - an evening with the edmonton symphony

              Friday night in Edmonton. Dinner and drinks with friends (new and old) at the newly opened LIT wine bar on 104th Street. We took over the entire top floor. Next, a little pre-show conversation at Moriarty's with some of Edmonton's bloggeratti who were invited to the show as a thank you for blogging about past symphony shows. Our third stop, was the Winspear Centre for the second in a series of late night concerts performed by the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra at the Winspear. The evening's program included selections from Bizet and Poulenc. Lucas Waldin conducted the symphony for the first movement of Bizet's Symphony in C major and then was joined by Bill Eddins on piano for Poulenc's Aubade - Concerto choreographique for piano and orchestra. Eddins then resumed his role as conductor for excerpts from Poulenc's Suite francaise and then finally the 4th movement from Bizet Symphony in C major. After the show we headed to the lobby for martinis and a little jazz courtesy of a trio of students(?) from Grant Macewan. It was a full night on the town. Music: Symphony in C Major: 1st movement (Allegro vivo) Bizet (performed by Charles Munch & Royal Philharmonic Orchestra)

                Team IBM joined Environment Society of Oman for a net clean up in Daimaniyat Islands in Oman. This effort was done in association with Al Sawadi Extra Divers and Mud Divers out of Dubai. Despite the rough weather , the team of 8 went out to map out the sites and remove nets ahead of the ESO main event (which took place the following week). Approx 50 KGs of nets were removed during this effort without damage on the coral around it. We also managed to release a turtle from the grips of a nasty fishing line ! This short video is a snapshort of this amazing journey . Goto say it feels great to do good ! The following week , ESO in coordination with many other dive centers, MoE , Min of Fisheries & Agriculture, and Min Of Env managed to finish off the job with an estimate of over 200 Kgs of nets. on behalf of Team IBM - we are proud to have taken part.

                  This video, taken by OmegaCAM on the VLT Survey Telescope at Paranal Observatory, gives a close-up view of a section of the Ara OB1 stellar association. In the centre of the image is the young open cluster NGC 6193, and to the right is the emission nebula NGC 6188, illuminated by the ionising radiation emitted by the brightest nearby stars.

                    This video shows an artist’s impression of an eclipsing binary star system. As the two stars orbit each other they pass in front of one another and their combined brightness, seen from a distance, decreases. By studying how the light changes, and other properties of the system, astronomers can measure the distances to eclipsing binaries very accurately. A long series of observations of very rare cool eclipsing binaries has now led to the most accurate determination so far of the distance to the Large Magellanic Cloud, a neighbouring galaxy to the Milky Way and crucial step in the determination of distances across the Universe.

                      What lies at the heart of our galaxy? For twenty years, ESO’s Very Large Telescope and the Keck telescopes have observed the centre of the Galaxy, looking at the motion of more than a hundred stars and identifying the position of an otherwise invisible object — the supermassive black hole at the centre of our galaxy. Embark on a Journey to the Centre of the Milky Way and during seven minutes travel faster than light, from the driest place on Earth, the Atacama Desert in Chile right to the centre of our own galaxy, where a black hole is consuming anything that strays into its path. 84 million stars will appear in front of your eyes, each hiding mysteries waiting to be solved. Are there planets around them, perhaps with moons? Do they have water? Could they harbour life? Journey to the Centre of the Milky Way is the first fulldome planetarium mini-show produced in-house by ESO for its Planetarium and Visitor Centre, the ESO Supernova, due to open in 2017. Available for free in 4k resolution, the mini-show can be downloaded and used by any planetarium in the world.
