The New Year brings several astronomical events to the United States, but Holikusburg's Saint Francis University astronomer Lanik Ruzhitskaya says the NASA space rocket "First Building Blocks" On January 1, the universe
The probe, called the new horizons, explores the Kuiper belt and begins sending Earth information and photographs starting at 12:33. Data and videos take six hours to reach NASA.
Ruzhitskaya is an Associate Professor of the Department of Physics and Astronomy and serves as Director of the Center for Science Support. She is pleased to see NASA's new horizons open.
"This is the most wonderful thing we can see for the first time, he said Scientists, called Ultima Thule, do not know much about these stones «Home Buildings» Mysterious substance on the solar system.
NASA has created new horizons of sleep in the season and Ultima appeared unexpectedly "Black" the world. In mid-December, NASA provided the green light to the probe on the optimal route to the facility. Some observations did not identify potential hazardous months and dumps. According to Rudzhitsky, the missile will allow to look at the most remote objects of the spacecraft in the nearest future.
Additional astronomical events of 2019, this is the Weather:
January 20-21: High blood circulation for redness over the United States: The most common astronomical event of the year will take place in mid-January as it turns red during the whole lunar eclipse. It will only be an entire whole year of this year, and will be seen in early hours of January 20 at night in North and South America, as well as part of Europe and Africa. 21. As it passes through the shade of the Earth, it gradually becomes pink, with its nickname "The blood mirror".
All eclipse at 9:36 am. and at 2:48, however, the moon's total red color goes on gradually to 11:41. and at 12.43 this is the last complete eclipse of May 2621, anywhere in the world.
r May 6-7: Galilean comet Eta Aquarids flies to the meteor shower: one of the best meteors of the 2019 ETA Aquarid meteor in the spring. When reaching the peak of the northern hemisphere, 30 meteors can be seen per hour. When it comes to many meteors per hour despite other meteors, the Eca Aquariids will be one of the few in the new moon phase – the best time to see natural light pollution. This allows you to see light meteors that can not be seen in the full month.
August 12-13: The Persians are amazed by the summer star rocket launchers: each year the planet's pneumatic meteor shower is set on the morning calendar on August 12 to August 13.
This year, Pneids will not have the best display because it will take up to full month; however, meteors associated with Pneids are shining than other meteors more than meteors, so the shooting range of stars must be large.
November 11: Mercury looks at the sun: On November 11, the rare earth-wide planet harmony appears in many parts of the world. Nevertheless, Rujitskaya warned that the right equipment – Sunlight glasses are needed to protect the Sun from permanent damage from direct sunlight. Mercury moves directly between the Earth and the Sun, looks like a small black dot on the Sun, and is still difficult to observe. Until November 13, 2032, this Agreement will not be returned. Sun glasses are available online from reputable suppliers and must be handed over ahead of schedule or months earlier.
