  • Observing With Webb - November Edition

    · 00:11:45 · The 365 Days of Astronomy, the daily podcast of the International Year of Astronomy 2009

    Welcome to Observing With Webb, where a high school astronomy teacher tells you what you’re looking at, why it’s so cool, and what you should check out later this month…at night. 13th – Close Encounter – Venus, Jupiter – Get out after 6am on the morning of the 13th and look ESE toward the horizon.  You’ll find VERY bright Venus about a quarter of a degree away from Jupiter, making this a great time to get both of them in a picture in a telescope, along with all four Galilean Moons.  But get out there as close to 6am as possible, as the Sun will rise at about 6:45, ruining your view even by 6:25. 17th – Leonid Meteor Shower – You might just catch a couple meteors coming from Leo, if you get out early in the morning and look at the whole sky in general, like other meteor showers.  However, this meteor shower is losing steam throughout the years, but still producing about 15 per hour.   Do go visit http://astrogear.spreadshirt.com/ for cool Astronomy Cast and CosmoQuest t-shirts, coffee mugs and other awesomeness! http://cosmoquest.org/Donate This show is made possible through your donations.

  • Guide To Space: When Was The First Light In The Universe?

    · 00:07:25 · The 365 Days of Astronomy, the daily podcast of the International Year of Astronomy 2009

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icdeQ7HLc7A Published on Nov 4, 2016. Fraser Cain hosts. The speed of light gives us an amazing tool for studying the Universe. Because light only travels a mere 300,000 kilometers per second, when we see distant objects, we’re looking back in time. You’re not seeing the Sun as it is today, you’re seeing an 8 minute old Sun. You’re seeing 642 year-old Betelgeuse. 2.5 million year-old Andromeda. In fact, you can keep doing this, looking further out, and deeper into time. Since the Universe is expanding today, it was closer in the past.   Do go visit http://astrogear.spreadshirt.com/ for cool Astronomy Cast and CosmoQuest t-shirts, coffee mugs and other awesomeness! http://cosmoquest.org/Donate This show is made possible through your donations.

  • Cheap Astronomy - SISS #20 - Project Sidekick

    · 00:12:14 · The 365 Days of Astronomy, the daily podcast of the International Year of Astronomy 2009

    Read by Janet Dudley, written by Steve Nerlich. The idea behind Project Sidekick has been the subject of enough science fiction stories that it shouldn’t take you long to get the idea. You put on a Hololens headset, which positions a transparent visor in front of your eyes. There are miniature cameras mounted on the headset so that Ground Control can see whatever you can see. And the visor is also a projection screen so that Ground Control can display a 3D visual schematic to overlie whatever you may be looking at through the visor – and while all that’s going on you will continue to get Ground Control audio in your ear.   Do go visit http://astrogear.spreadshirt.com/ for cool Astronomy Cast and CosmoQuest t-shirts, coffee mugs and other awesomeness! http://cosmoquest.org/Donate This show is made possible through your donations.

  • Travelers in the Night - Eps. 333 & 334: Whoppers & Last 19 Hours

    · 00:05:24 · The 365 Days of Astronomy, the daily podcast of the International Year of Astronomy 2009

    Dr. Al Grauer hosts. Dr. Albert D. Grauer ( @Nmcanopus ) is an observational asteroid hunting astronomer. Dr. Grauer retired from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2006. Today's 2 topics: - Eric Christensen discovered 3,000' diameter PHA 2017 CH1. This would be big trouble if it hit Earth. Luckily it isn't expected to do so anytime soon. - Richard Kowalski discovered 2008 TC3 which exploded harmlessly over Africa. Meteorites from it have been recovered. This was the first time that an asteroid was tracked before impact and then found on the ground. It was spotted 19 hours before it hit.   Do go visit http://astrogear.spreadshirt.com/ for cool Astronomy Cast and CosmoQuest t-shirts, coffee mugs and other awesomeness! http://cosmoquest.org/Donate This show is made possible through your donations.
