Canada Goose Parka Greetings, fellow SkyWatchers! Dark skies mean galactic studies and this is going to be a terrific week for sacrificing Viginis. But, hang on to your socks Because it solar eclipse time! We talking about canada goose outlet niagara falls an annular event that occurs over canada goose outlet uk a 240 to 300 kilometre wide track which crosses eastern canada goose outlet nyc Asia, the northern Pacific Ocean and the western United States. It a generous event where a partial eclipse also occurs that includes much of Asia, the Pacific and the western 2/3 of North America. Whenever you ready, just meet me outside Canada Goose Parka
canada goose uk outlet Monday, May 14 No galactic tour canada goose outlet sale through Coma Berenices would be complete without canada goose factory outlet visiting one of the most incredible that Messier missed. You find NGC 4565 (Right Ascension: 12 : 36.3 Declination: 25 : 59) located less than two degrees east of 17 Comae canada goose uk outlet
buy canada goose jacket cheap Residing at a distance of around 30 million light years, this large 10th magnitude galaxy is probably one of the finest edge on structures you canada goose outlet trillium parka black will ever see. Perfectly suited for smaller scopes, this ultra canada goose outlet new york slender galaxy with the bright core has earned its nickname canada goose outlet florida of Needle. Although photographs sometimes show more than what can be observed visually, mid to large aperture canada goose outlet germany can easily trace out NGC 4565 full photographic diameter. buy canada goose jacket cheap
canadian goose jacket Although Lord Rosse in 1855 saw the nucleus canada goose sale uk of the as stellar, most telescopes will resolve a bulging core region with a much sharper point in the center and a dark dust lane upon aversion. The core itself has been extensively studied for its cold gas canada goose outlet location and emission lines, pointing to the fact that it has a barred structure. This is much how the Milky Way would look if canada goose outlet winnipeg viewed from the same angle! It, too, shines with the light of 30 billion stars canadian goose jacket
uk canada goose outlet Chances are NGC 4565 is an outlying member of the Virgo Cluster, but its sheer size points to the fact that it is probably closer than any of the others. If we were to gauge it at a distance of 30 million years as is accepted, its diameter would be larger than any galaxy yet known! Get acquainted with it tonight uk canada goose outlet
Canada Goose Jackets Tuesday, May 15 Tonight we take a closer look at the work of Abbe Nicholas Louis de la Caille (or de Lacaille). Born in 1731, the French astronomer and mapmaker was the first to demonstrate Earth bulge at its equator. From 1751 to 1753, he had the great fortune to observe southern skies and, putting his cartography skills to use, he mapped the southern skies and established the 14 constellations that remain in use to this day including Musca. Even though Lacaille was best known for the constellation names, he and his productive half inch telescope (that’s no type!) also cataloged 9766 stars in his two year observing period. Of these, one stands out for good reason Lacaille 8760. Canada Goose Jackets
Canada Goose Outlet Its designation is also AX Microscopii, and it is a dwarf red flare star which resides only 12.9 light years from us. While it might not seem that important, it is the target of canada goose outlet authentic interferometer studies in search of planets that may have formed in a zone around life giving stars similar to our own. Even though AX is slightly canada goose outlet online store review smaller than Sol, this cool main sequence star might be inhospitable due to its daily flare activity. Canada Goose Outlet
canada goose black friday sale Since it will be awhile before the constellation of Microscopium rises high enough for southern observers to capture this star, let have a look at an object from Lacaille catalog known as I.5. canada goose black friday sale
canada goose clearance Located less than two handspans south of Spica, most of us know this globular cluster best as NGC 5139 (Right Ascension: 13 : 26.8 Declination: 47 : 29) or Omega Centauri. As the most luminous of all globular clusters, Lacaille reported it as a in Centaurus; with simple view, it looks like a star of 3rd magnitude viewed through light mist, and through the telescope canada goose outlet london uk like a big comet badly bounded. Yet, through even the most modest of today telescopes, Omega Centauri will explode into a fury of stars. Located about 17,000 light years away, it took around 2 million years to form and it is believed that it may be the remnant of another galaxy core captured by our canada goose jacket outlet uk own. With more than one million members, it the size of a small galaxy in itself! canada goose clearance
canada goose uk black friday While this object is very low to northern observers, it is not impossible for those who live lower than 40 canada goose outlet store montreal degrees north. Our atmosphere will rob this giant of a galaxy of some of its beauty, but I encourage you to try! It a sight you never forget canada goose uk black friday
Wednesday, May 16 Tonight let take a look about five degrees north of Eta Virginis for M61 (Right Ascension: 12 : 21.9 Declination: 04 : 28).
cheap canada goose uk This 9.7 magnitude galaxy was discovered on May 5, 1779 by man named Barnabus Oriani while following the same comet as Charles Messier, who also observed it on the same night and mistook it for the comet itself for two additional nights. (Nice shootin Chuck!) Happily enough, Mr. Herschel also assigned it his own designation of H I.139 seven years later. cheap canada goose uk
It is one of the largest galaxies of the Virgo Cluster and small telescopes will make out a faint, round glow with a brighter nucleus, while larger aperture will see the core as more stellar with notable spiral structure. canada goose outlet store calgary Four supernova events have been observed in M61, as recently as 1999, and surprisingly two of them were exactly 35 years apart But don confuse an event with foreground stars!
canada goose coats on sale Thursday, May 17 Today in 1835, canada goose outlet J. Norman Lockyer was born. While that name might not stand out, Lockyer was the first to note previously unknown absorption lines while making visual spectroscopic studies of the Sun in 1868. Little did he know at the time, he had correctly identified the second most abundant element in our universe helium an element not discovered on Earth until 1891! Also known as the of Archeoastronomy, Sir Lockyer was one of the first to make the connection with ancient astronomical structures such as Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids. (As a curious note, 14 years after Lockyer notation of helium, a sun grazing comet made its appearance in photographs of the solar corona taken during a total eclipse in 1882 It hasn been seen since.) canada goose coats on sale
canada goose clearance sale If you would like to see a helium rich star, look no further tonight than Alpha Virginis Spica. As the sixteenth brightest star in the sky, this brilliant blue/white appears to be about 275 light years away and is about 2300 times brighter than our own Sun. Although we cannot see it visually, Spica is a double star. Its spectroscopic companion is roughly half its size and is also helium rich. canada goose clearance sale
Canada Goose sale Now, shake your fist at Spica canada goose outlet uk sale because that all it takes to find the awesome M104 (Right Ascension: 12 : 40.0 Declination: 11 : 37), eleven degrees due west. (If you still have trouble finding M104 even after practicing earlier this year, don worry. Try this trick! Look for the upper left hand star in the rectangle of Corvus Delta. Between Spica and Delta is a diamond shaped pattern of 5th magnitude stars. Aim your scope or binoculars just above the one furthest south.) Canada Goose sale
Also known as http://www.mycanadagoosejacket.org the this gorgeous 8th magnitude galaxy was discovered by Pierre Mechain in 1781, added by hand to Messier catalog canada goose premium outlet and observed independently by Herschel as H I.43 who was probably the first to note its dark inclusion. The Sombrero rich central bulge is comprised of several hundred globular clusters and can be hinted at in just large binoculars and small telescopes. Large aperture will revel in this galaxy through qualities and bold, dark dustlane making it a seasonal favorite!
canada goose factory sale Friday, May 18 On this day in 1910, Comet Halley transited the Sun, but could not be detected visually. Since the beginning of astronomical observation, transits, eclipses and occultations have provided science with some very accurate determinations of size. Since Comet Halley could not be spotted against the solar surface, we knew almost a century ago that the nucleus had to be smaller than about 100 km. canada goose factory sale
Canada Goose online Once the sky has become fully dark, it is time to get serious. For the large telescope and seasoned observer, your challenge for this evening will be five and a half degrees south of Beta Virginis and one half degree west. Classified as canada goose outlet ottawa Arp 248 (Right Ascension: 11h 46m 36s Declination 3 52 00 and more commonly known as Triplet, these three very small interacting galaxies are a real treat! Best with around a 9mm eyepiece, use wide aversion and try to keep the star just north of the trio at the edge of the field to cut glare. Be sure to mark your Arp Galaxy challenge list! Canada Goose online
Canada Goose Coats On Sale Saturday, May 19 Tonight we heading for the galaxy fields of Virgo about four fingerwidths east southeast of Beta Leonis. As part of Markarian Chain, this set of galaxies can all be fitted within the same field of view with a 32mm eyepiece and a 12.5 scope, but not everyone has the same equipment. Set your sights toward M84 and M86 and let discover! Canada Goose Coats On Sale
cheap Canada Goose Good binoculars and small telescopes reveal this pair with ease as a matched set of ellipticals. Mid sized telescopes will note the western member of the pair M84 (Right Ascension: 12 : 25.1 Declination: 12 : 53) is seen as slightly brighter and visibly smaller. To the east and slightly north is larger M86 (Right Ascension: 12 : 26.2 Declination: 12 : 57) whose nucleus is broader, and less intensely brilliant. In a larger scope, we see the galaxies literally out of the eyepiece at even the most modest magnifications. Strangely though, additional structure fails to be seen. cheap Canada Goose
canada goose store As aperture increases, one of the most fascinating features of this area becomes apparent. While studying the bright galactic forms of canada goose outlet factory M84/86 with direct vision, aversion begins to welcome many other mysterious strangers into view. Forming an easy triangle with the two Messiers canada goose outlet 2015 and located about 20 arc minutes south is canada goose jacket outlet store NGC 4388 (Right Ascension: 12 : 25.8 Declination: 12 : 40). At magnitude 11.0, this edge on spiral has a dim star like core to mid sized scopes, but a classic edge on structure in larger ones. canada goose store
canada goose uk shop At magnitude 12, canada goose uk site NGC 4387 (Right Ascension: 12 : 25.7 Declination: 12 : 49) is located in the center of a triangle formed by the two Messiers and NGC 4388 (Right Ascension: 12 : 25.8 Declination: 12 : 40). NGC 4387 is a dim galaxy hinting at a stellar nucleus to smaller scopes, while the larger ones will see a very small face on spiral with a brighter nucleus. Just a breath north of M86 is an even dimmer patch of nebulosity NGC 4402 (Right Ascension: 12 : 26.1 Declination: 13 : 07) which needs higher magnifications to be detected in smaller scopes. Large apertures at high power reveal a noticeable dust lane. The central structure forms a curved of light. Luminosity appears evenly distributed end to end, while the dust lane cleanly separates the central bulge of the core. canada goose uk shop
canada goose coats East of M86 is two brighter NGC galaxies 4435 and 4438. Through average scopes, NGC 4435 (Right Ascension: 12 : 27.7 Declination: 13 : 05) is easily picked out at low power with a simple star like core and wispy round body structure. NGC 4438 (Right Ascension: 12 : 27.8 Declination: 13 : 01) is dim, but even large apertures make elliptical galaxies a bit boring. The beauty of NGC 4435 and NGC 4438 is simply their proximity to each other. 4435 shows true elliptical structure, evenly illuminated, with a sense of fading toward the edges But 4438 is quite a different story! This elliptical is much more elongated. A highly conspicuous wisp of galactic material can be seen stretching back toward the brighter, nearby galaxy pair M84/86. Happy hunting! canada goose coats
canada goose Sunday, May 20 Heads up! It’s eclipse time According to NASA’s Fred Espenak, an annular solar eclipse will be visible from a 240 to 300 kilometre wide track that traverses eastern Asia, the northern Pacific Ocean and the western United States. A partial eclipse is seen within the much broader path of the Moon penumbral shadow which includes much of Asia, the Pacific and the western 2/3 of North America. Partial phases of the eclipse are visible primarily from the USA, Canada, the Pacific and East Asia. Be sure to visit the resources pages for a visibility map and link to pages for precise times and locations! canada goose
uk canada goose New Moon! Since tonight will be our last chance to galaxy hunt for awhile, let take a look at one of the brightest members of the Virgo Cluster M49 (Right Ascension: 12 : 29.8 Declination: 08 : 00). uk canada goose
Located about 8 degrees northwest of Delta Virginis almost directly between a pair of 6th magnitude stars, giant elliptical M49 holds the distinction of being the first galaxy in the Virgo cluster to be discovered and the second beyond our local group. At magnitude 8.5, this type E4 galaxy will appear as an evenly illuminated egg shape in almost all scopes, and as a faint patch in binoculars. While a possible supernova event occurred in 1969, don confuse the foreground star noted by Herschel with something new!
Canada Goose Online Although most telescopes won be able to pick this region apart there are also many fainter companions near M49, including NGC 4470 (Right Ascension: 12 : 29.6 Declination: 07 : 49). But a sharp eyed observer named Halton Arp noticed them and listed them as Galaxy 134 one with next week? May all your journeys be at light speed! Canada Goose Online
