Hubble Reveals Dumbbell Nebula
Image credit: Hubble The latest image from the Hubble Space Telescope reveals a close-up view of planetary nebula M29, aka the Dumbbell Nebula. Featured in the image are knots of gas and dust which astronomers believe appear in all planetary nebula at a certain stage of their creation. Visit News Source Feb 10, 2003, 7:12am Science Photos of Mt. Etna Captured By Four Satellites Image credit: NASA By combining the data from four separate instruments, NASA scientists are able to study the Earth's volcanoes in tremendous detail. Most recently, Italy's Mt. Etna was captured mid-eruption using the instruments on board the Terra and Aqua spacecraft, and the data will help the scientists understand the complex behaviour of volcanic plumes and the effects the eruptions have on the environment.

    Jupiter and Saturn Close to Earth Image Credit: Courtesy of NASA/JPL/University of Arizona Currently, both Jupiter and Saturn are about as close to Earth as they get during the year. On December 3, Saturn reached opposition. At opposition, a planet lies opposite the Sun in Earth's sky. The planet rises at sunset, reaches its highest point in the sky at midnight, and sets at dawn. Jupiter came to opposition on New Year's day. A planet reaches its closest point to Earth on or within a few days of opposition. At opposition, the Sun, Earth, and the outer planet form an imaginary straight line in space. "Whether using the naked eye or a telescope, the best time to observe Jupiter and Saturn is when they come closest to Earth," says Naeye. "Even through a small telescope, you can easily see Jupiter's four largest moons, along with red, white, and brown parallel bands in the planet's upper atmosphere. Saturn's rings are also easy to see with a telescope. One can usually see several of Saturn's largest moons as well." Both Jupiter and Saturn are easy to find with the unaided eye. Saturn currently appears as a very bright "star" in the constellation Taurus, near the bright star Aldebaran. Jupiter is even easier to find. It is by far the brightest "star" in the evening sky, and lies in Gemini, near the radiant of the Geminid meteor shower. Saturn rises around sunset, while Jupiter rises nearly two hours later.

    Physics and Astronomy News Latest Stories Catch a Quasiperiodic Wave Source: Physical Review Focus Posted: Vibrating a fluid-filled pan with a specially prepared bottom creates quasiperiodic standing waves on the surface. A wave pulse sent through this background sheds light on the mathematical description of an electron traversing a quasiperiodic crystal. Full story... Hubble Discovers an Evaporating Planet Source: HubbleSite Posted: For the first time, astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have observed the atmosphere of an extrasolar planet evaporating off into space. Much of the planet may eventually disappear, leaving only a dense core. The planet is a type of extrasolar planet known as a 'hot Jupiter.' Full story...

    'Night Sky' for March 17, 2003 -
    The moon's full tomorrow (100% at 6:34pm) and should be a fine sight, coming up about 15 minutes after sunset. Get out your binoculars and spotting scopes. This isn't the full moon that determines Easter - the one after the equinox does that. The autumn equinox is on Friday. "Equi-nox" or equal-night means it's the time when day and night have equal lengths, 12 hours each. If we reckoned our seasons as per Europe, UK and USA (the correct way), we'd begin autumn at the equinox, rather than on March 1st. At the equinox, the sun rises due east and sets due west. From then on, the days are shorter than the nights. Good news for astronomers.
    Jupiter stands out in the north-eastern sky at dusk, and well it might - even more new jovian moon discoveries bring its total to 52. It culminates in the north about 9:15pm; that's when you get the best view in a telescope, with the least interference from the earth's shimmery atmosphere. Saturn is in the north-northwest at nightfall, and sets in the west-northwest about 10:50pm. Jupiter sets about 2:20am. Mars rises in the east-southeast about 12:15am and is high overhead at dawn. Venus rises at about 3:30am and dominates the eastern sky at dawn.

    Monday, May 28, 2001 NIGHT SKY REPORT FOR THE WEEK STARTING MAY 28, 2001.
    The moon's waxing - remember, if you can see it at nightfall, it's waxing! Crescent moon tonight and tomorrow; first quarter Wednesday (50% at 6:09am). Then waxing gibbous phases leading to full moon on Wednesday next week. The star above and to the left of the moon tomorrow evening will be Regulus (Alpha Leonis), the brightest star in Leo. The star above the moon on Saturday evening will be Spica (Alpha Virginis), the brightest star in Virgo.
    Jupiter's all but gone now, setting in the twilight in the west-northwest at about 6pm. Mercury can still be easily seen low in the west-northwest at dusk, but it's starting to set earlier and earlier now - about 6:30pm tonight, and 6:20pm by the weekend. Mars rises in the east-southeast about 6:25pm and is then the brightest (and the reddest!) starlike object visible until Venus appears in the east at about 3:30am. Venus is now at its earliest rising for the year. At daybreak Venus dominates the north-eastern sky, and Mars is prominent at about the same altitude in the west.
    High in the south at nightfall is the small, kite-shaped Southern Cross. Just to the left and down a bit are the two bright Pointers, Alpha and Beta Centauri. The Outer Pointer, Alpha Centauri, is the nearest star we can see at night. It's actually a double star, easily revealed by small telescopes: two suns, orbiting about the mid-point between them. 80 years per orbit. The orbit is not circular, but elliptical, and the distance between the two stars varies from 11 to 35 AU. One AU (astronomical unit) is the average Earth - Sun distance, approx. 150 million km.
