Orionids & Southern Taurids Set for a Pretty Display of Shooting Stars this Weekend

  • nemesis maturity Published on Oct 17, 2018
    The Orionid and Southern Taurid meteor showers are expected to peak this weekend, though this year, in 2018, the showers must compete with the glare of the brilliant waxing gibbous moon for much of the night. The advantage of watching in late Friday to Saturday morning rather than the following nights – is that there is less moonlight to obstruct the show. Some experts are expecting a possible upswing in Orionid activity in 2018. Because the peak is rather broad, skywatchers should be alert watching for three nights in a row (October 20-22). The Orionids stem from bits and pieces from the most famous of all comets, Comet Halley, and the Southern Taurids from comet 2P Encke. As the comets move through space, they leave debris in their wake that strikes Earth’s atmosphere most fully around October 20-22, every year.

The Comet of the Year is Coming Soon: 46P Passes Mars’ Orbit & is Heading Our Way

  • nemesis maturity Published on Oct 16, 2018
    Heads Up stargazers! Comet 46P/Wirtanen set to put on a show for stargazers over the next few months. Comet Wirtanen passes through the inner solar system every 5.4 years. Right now it is near the orbit of Mars, and it is heading in our direction.

    Astronomers are calling Comet 46P/Wirtanen the “comet of the year.” Two months from now, on Dec. 16th, the kilometer-wide ball of dirty ice will come within 11.5 million km of Earth–making it one of the 10 closest-approaching comets of the Space Age. Comet 46P/Wirtanen will probably become a naked eye object for several weeks during the holidays. Latest images show shows the comet’s green atmosphere which is, impressively, almost twice as wide as the planet Jupiter. The green color comes from diatomic carbon (C2)–a gaseous substance common in comet atmospheres that glows green in the near-vacuum of space.

    At the moment, the integrated brightness of the comet is similar to a 10th magnitude star–that is, dim. However, forecasters expect it to brighten more than 200-fold by December. If current trends hold, 46P could ultimately reach magnitude +3, making it not a Great Comet but a very good one, visible to the unaided eye and an easy target for binoculars or small telescopes.

Magnificent Planetary Alignment: The Five Brightest Planets Align in the Night Sky

  • nemesis maturity Published on Oct 15, 2018
    On October 15 up to 17, 2018 – watch the waxing moon move from Saturn to Mars on the sky’s dome. Saturn and Mars are bright planets and therefore rather easy to see with the eye alone.

    Pluto
    On October 16th, the moon will swing by the dwarf planet Pluto before it meets up with Mars. Although Pluto lodges in the section of sky between Saturn and Mars, to see this extremely faint world, you need a telescope. By the way, a modest backyard telescope is quite sufficient for viewing Saturn’s glorious rings, and Mars’ polar cap. Try it tonight, as soon as darkness falls. You can catch the king planet Jupiter and the bright star Antares low at southwest. http://earthsky.org/tonight/moon-satu…

    Planetary Alignment
    For the second time this year, the five brightest planets can be seen at the same time. You can catch them by looking towards the western sky after sunset. Southern hemisphere sky watchers will be able to see the planets forming a line rising up from the horizon. Mercury and Venus are low to the west, with bright Jupiter shining just above. Higher up in the southwestern sky is Saturn, and completing the set of five is the red planet Mars, high overhead.

Meteor Activity Outlook for 13-19 October 2018 — 6 Meteor Showers Peak in October

Photo taken on Oct. 10, 2018 shows the Draconids meteor shower in Russia’s Far East region. (Photo/IC)

  • Meteor Activity Outlook for 13-19 October 2018 — 6 Meteor Showers Peak in October
    by , https://www.meteornews.net/
    During this period the moon will reach its new phase on Tuesday October 16th. At this time the moon will be located 90 degrees east of the sun and will set near midnight local summer time (LST). This weekend the waxing crescent moon will set during the late evening hours leaving the remainder of the night nice and dark for meteor observing. The estimated total hourly meteor rates for evening observers this week is near 3 for those viewing from the northern hemisphere and 2 for those located south of the equator. For morning observers the estimated total hourly rates should be near 22 as seen from mid-northern latitudes and 16 from the southern tropics. Evening rates are slightly reduced during this period due to moonlight. The actual rates will also depend on factors such as personal light and motion perception, local weather conditions, alertness and experience in watching meteor activity. Note that the hourly rates listed below are estimates as viewed from dark sky sites away from urban light sources. Observers viewing from urban areas will see less activity as only the brighter meteors will be visible from such locations.

    THESE SOURCES OF METEORIC ACTIVITY ARE EXPECTED TO BE ACTIVE THIS WEEK.
    The Northern Taurids (NTA) are active from a large radiant located at 01:56 (029) +16. This area of the sky is located in southwestern Aries, 3 degrees south of the 3rd magnitude double star known as Mesarthim (gamma 2 Arietis). This position is close to the Southern Taurids so care must be taken in separating these meteors. You should have the two radiants near the center of your field of view to properly differentiate these sources. The maximum is not expected until early November so current rates would be 1 per hour or less. These meteors may be seen all night long but the radiant is best placed near 0200 LST when it lies on the meridian and is located highest in the sky. With an entry velocity of 28 km/sec., the average Northern Taurid meteor would be of slow velocity.

    The Southern Taurids (STA) are active from a large radiant centered near 02:12 (033) +09. This position lies in northeastern Cetus, near the spot occupied by the 4th magnitude star known as xi 2 Ceti. These meteors may be seen all night long but the radiant is best placed near 0200 LST when it lies on the meridian and is located highest in the sky. Rates at this time should be near 3 per hour regardless of your location. With an entry velocity of 27 km/sec., the average Southern Taurid meteor would be of slow velocity.

    The omicron Eridanids (OER) were discovered by Japanese observers using video data from SonotoCo in 2007-2008. The activity period ranges from October 16 – November 24 with maximum activity occurring on November 4th. This is a weak shower that usually produces rates less than 1 per hour, even at maximum activity. The radiant is currently located at 02:20 (035) -06, which places it in eastern Cetus, 8 degrees southwest of the 4th magnitude star known as delta Ceti. This location is close to the source of the Southern Taurids so care must be taken to separate these meteors. Like the STA’s these meteors may be seen all night long but the radiant is best placed near 0200 LST when it lies on the meridian and is located highest in the sky. With an entry velocity of 29 km/sec., the average omicron Eridanid meteor would be of slow velocity.

    The Orionids (ORI) are active from a radiant located at 05:51 (088) +16. This area of the sky is located on the Taurus/Orion border, 8 degrees north of the bright 1st magnitude orange star known as Betelgeuse (alpha Orionis). This area of the sky is best placed near 05:00 LST, when it lies highest above the horizon. Current rates should be near 3-5 per hour no matter your location. With an entry velocity of 67 km/sec., most activity from this radiant would be of swift speed.

  • So far the Draconids meteor shower of 2018 is on the quiet side. Nothing spectacular in terms of numbers. There is still about 1 more week to go ie. until around the 16 Oct 2018.
  • Draconids ‘Dragon Meteor Shower’ Blaze Across Russia & US Skies
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Lucky stargazers in Russia and North America have been treated to a spectacular cosmic display, courtesy of an age-old star constellation shaped like a space dragon.

    The annual Draconids meteor shower occurs every year in October, providing astronomers and amateur stargazers with an opportunity to see fiery space rock shoot across Earth’s sky. The celestial light show is best viewed on a clear night from the northern hemisphere as the meteors appear to come from the Draco the Dragon constellation in the north.

    Discovered by the ancient Roman astronomer Claudius Ptolemy, the intriguing star formation, which is home to more than 14 main stars, resembles a serpent or dragon parading across the sky. It’s from this constellation that the Draconids appear to come from, sometimes raining down in their many hundreds.

    So far, enthusiasts from Russia, Canada and the US have posted their incredible snapshots on social media, revealing meteors surging sideways over places like Siberia, Texas and the Blue Ridge Mountains, Georgia.

    With the Draconids expected to last until October 16, there is still time to sneak a peek of the celestial experience.

Betelgeuse is Getting Ready to Go Supernova

  • nemesis maturity Published on Oct 9, 2018
    The red supergiant star Betelgeuse is getting ready to go supernova, and when it does Earth will have a front-row seat. The explosion will be so bright that Earth will briefly seem to have two suns in the sky. The star is located in the Orion constellation, about 640 light-years away from Earth. It’s one of the brightest and biggest stars in our galactic neighborhood – if you dropped it in our Solar System, it would extend all the way out to Jupiter, leaving Earth completely engulfed. https://io9.gizmodo.com/5738542/earth…

    Someday soon (astronomically speaking), it will run out of fuel, collapse under its own weight, and then rebound in a spectacular supernova explosion. When this happens, Betelgeuse will brighten enormously for a few weeks or months, perhaps as bright as the full moon and visible in broad daylight. When will it happen?


    Probably not in our lifetimes. But, in fact, no one really knows. It could be tomorrow or a million years in the future.

    “We are travelers on a cosmic journey,stardust,swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist Don’t miss out the dazzling Draconid meteor shower this evening. A spectacular Jupiter Moon conjunction occurs on Oct. 11th. There is also a new moon tonight. At its new phase, the moon is travelling between Earth and the sun. Since sunlight can only reach the far side of the moon, and the moon is in the same region of the sky as the sun, the moon will be completely hidden from view. Jupiter and the Moon Low in the southwestern sky for a short period after sunset on Thursday, October 11, the young crescent moon will sit 3 degrees to the lower right of the very bright planet Jupiter. The pair of objects will be visible together in the field of view of binoculars until they set shortly after 8 p.m. local time.

New Mind-blowing Discoveries on Saturn System

  • nemesis maturity Published on Oct 6, 2018
    New research emerging from the final orbits of NASA’s Cassini spacecraft represents a huge leap forward in our understanding of the Saturn system — especially the mysterious, never-before-explored region between the planet and its rings. Some preconceived ideas are turning out to be wrong while new questions are being raised. Six teams of researchers are publishing their work Oct. 5 in the journal Science, based on findings from Cassini’s Grand Finale. That’s when, as the spacecraft was running out of fuel, the mission team steered Cassini spectacularly close to Saturn in 22 orbits before deliberately vaporizing it in a final plunge into the atmosphere in September 2017. Knowing Cassini’s days were numbered, its mission team went for gold. The spacecraft flew where it was never designed to fly. For the first time, it probed Saturn’s magnetized environment, flew through icy, rocky ring particles and sniffed the atmosphere in the 1,200-mile-wide (2,000-kilometer-wide) gap between the rings and the cloud tops. Not only did the flight path push the spacecraft to its limits, the new findings illustrate how powerful and agile the instruments were.

Draconids: Spectacular Meteor Shower Possible Until Monday — How To See Shooting Stars This Weekend

  • Draconids: Spectacular Meteor Shower Possible Until Monday: How To See Shooting Stars This Weekend
    by Jamie Carter, https://www.forbes.com/
    Right on cue, World Space Week might be about to give us a spectacular display of shooting stars this weekend, with maximum activity predicted on Monday night for sky-watchers in the northern hemisphere.

    With a waning moon meaning the night skies are free of bright moonlight this weekend and through next week, the Draconids meteor shower could spring a few surprises for stargazers.

    What is the Draconids meteor shower?
    Shooting stars are caused by Earth’s orbit crossing a stream of dust left by a comet. The Draconids come from the leftovers from Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner, which visits every 6.6 years, and most years it only produces only about ten shooting stars per hour. However, this year things might be different.


    Why is the Draconids different this year?
    Meteor showers tend to be at their most prolific when the comet that are caused them has traveled through the solar system relatively recently. That’s the case this year; early next week Earth will pass 256,000 km inside the orbit of comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner just a few weeks after the comet passed through the same region of space on September 10. A similar situation occurred in both 1933 and 1946 when Europe experienced a massive shooting star ‘storm’ with around 10,000 shooting stars per hour during the Draconids meteor shower. However, there are no guarantees since the dust trails left by the comet are narrow, so activity is hard to predict.

Draconid Meteor Shower May Burst Into Meteor Storm – Shooting Stars Can Shoot Down Satellites

  • nemesis maturity Published on Oct 3, 2018
    The October Draconids is an established meteor shower that occurs annually around the 9th of October. The shower was linked in 1926 to the Jupiter-family comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner, known to evolve on a perturbed and “erratic” orbit. Although the annual activity of the shower is usually low (a few visual meteors per hour), the Draconids produce episodic outbursts (e.g. in 1985, 1998, 2005 and 2011) and meteor storms. In 1933 and 1946, the Zenithal Hourly Rate (ZHR) of the shower reached a level of around ten thousand meteors per hour. In 2012, a completely unexpected Draconid storm was detected by the Canadian Meteor Orbit Radar (CMOR), with an equivalent ZHR reaching 9000 meteors per hour.

    The irregularity of these shower displays, caused in large part by the frequent perturbations experienced by the orbit of the comet parent, make the October Draconids among the most challenging meteor showers to predict. The predicted path of the Earth through the debris streams of comet 21P/Giacobini-Ziner is favorable for a major storm, similar to what has been seen in previous years. Some experts predict low Draconid activity, with a maximum of less than a few tens of meteors per hour around 8th to 9th of October. At the L1 and L2 Lagrange points, however, the flux estimates suggest a “meteoroid storm.”

    Some reports say NASA is even considering the potential risk of damage to the Discover spacecraft and other satellites due to meteor impacts. The L1 region hosts a significant number of active spacecraft (e.g. SOHO, ACE, GGS and DSCOVR) that might be impacted by meteoroids released by the comet in 1946. The meteroid flux around the ESA’s Gaia spacecraft, orbiting around the L2 region, is particularly significant. The satellite risks to be impacted by large Draconid meteoroids, travelling with a velocity of about 20 km/s. Mission operators at the European Space Agency say they will command the spacecraft to rotate and shield itself to avoid any damage.
    https://www.newscientist.com/article/…

    Get ready for a spectacular night sky light show! Even for a major outburst of shooting stars. The Draconids will be most visible between sunset and midnight when the constellation Draco is at its highest point. The shower will appear brighter in darker locations, so stargazers are advised to travel to the countryside for the best views.

Planet X? Mysterious Planet ‘The Goblin’ Redefines Solar System

Planet X, Ten including Pluto.

  • Planet X? Mysterious Planet ‘The Goblin’ Redefines Solar System
    by Mac Slavo, October 2nd, 2018, SHTFplan.com 
    The discovery of a new dwarf planet called “The Goblin” is redefining our solar system. The planet’s massively elongated orbit suggests object is influenced by theoretical giant Planet Nine (Planet X) in the Oort Cloud region.

    Planet X, an as-of-yet unseen world could be shaping the orbits of smaller, extremely distant objects like the newly described 2015 TG387, nicknamed “The Goblin.” The Goblin is likely spherical and about as wide as the state of Massachusetts. And much like a handful of other distant solar system inhabitants, its orbital behavior might signal the presence of Planet X lurking in the distant outer dominions of the solar system.

    The Goblin is the third minor planet to have been found in the outer solar system, following the discoveries of Sedna and, recently, another object called 2012 VP113. This region, which was once thought of as a cold, dark, and empty realm now appears to be a rich collection of exotic and extreme objects. And these three planets may be just the beginning of the discoveries.

    “We are only just now uncovering what the very outer solar system might look like and what might be out there,” said Scott Sheppard of the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington DC and a member of the team which located The Goblin. “We believe there are thousands of dwarf planets in the distant solar system. We are just seeing the tip of the iceberg right now.”

    Doomsayers have been warning of Planet X (or Wormwood, or Planet Nine) for years, however, most of their prophecies include a collision with Earth or a conspiracy to hide the planet’s existence from the public. But it appears that the discovery of The Goblin has even scientists wondering what else is out there beyond the far reaches of our solar system. “Every small object we find that is isolated like this will bring us closer to finding the planet,” said Scott Sheppard. Sheppard also reported the finding in a notice distributed by the International Astronomical Union’s Minor Planet Center, according toThe National Geographic

Something Big is Out There: Newfound Dwarf Planet Points to Mysterious Planet X

  • nemesis maturity Published on Oct 2, 2018
    New extremely distant solar system object found during hunt for Planet X. Tuesday, October 02, 2018: Washington, DC—Carnegie’s Scott Sheppard and his colleagues—Northern Arizona University’s Chad Trujillo, and the University of Hawaii’s David Tholen—are once again redefining our Solar System’s edge. They discovered a new extremely distant object far beyond Pluto with an orbit that supports the presence of an even-farther-out, Super-Earth or larger Planet X. The newly found object, called 2015 TG387, was announced Tuesday by the International Astronomical Union’s Minor Planet Center. A paper with the full details of the discovery has also been submitted to The Astronomical Journal. Carnegie Institution for Science Read more here:

Astronomers have Spotted a Supermassive Black Hole Out of Control

  • nemesis maturity Published on Sep 28, 2018
    Astronomers have found in the past that there are planets out there which are expelled from their Solar Systems by the gravity of other bodies—as if they were simple comets, and wander in solitude in the darkness of outer space. On the outskirts of the galaxies, there are solitary stars that were likewise expelled and travel towards the “emptiness” of the cosmos. However, there are things out there which are far more mysterious. Much larger objects exist out there, objects that are usually ‘locked’ in the center of galaxies, subject to their gravity: black holes. Astronomers have spotted something really SPOOKY in the universe. Astronomers have recently detected a supermassive black hole ‘out of control’. It weighs 160 million solar masses and was ‘kicked’ from the center of a galaxy into outer space. It is located in an elliptical galaxy around 3.9 billion light years from earth.
