Stars and Energy ISE Hangout Video

isehangout-star-energy-200x

The Earth is warm because energy created in the core of the Sun is able to travel from the Sun’s Core to its surface, and then shine through space all the way to Earth. As it travels, the light is transformed from deadly high-energy particles to the nice warm light that keeps us alive. Inspiring Science Education hangout on 11 March 2015 discussed the primary ways energy is transported: convection, conduction, and radiation. If you missed the live hangout, enjoy the video of the recording.

Rosetta Ground-Based Campaign

Rosetta_Astronomers_200xCalling all amateur astronomers to be a part of the Rosetta Worldwide Ground-based Observing Program to observe comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (C-G) from April – December 2015, as the Rosetta orbiter accompanies the comet to its perihelion and outbound journey.

Amateur astronomers will be able to make significant contributions to the campaign, especially in 2015 , from recovery of the comet (which is currently in solar conjunction), around perihelion in August; and post-perihelion when the comet becomes its brightest (September – November).  Amateurs can contribute in many formats, ranging from imaging, spectroscopic and binocular observations to sketches.
