For hundreds of years, people have seen tiny flashes of light on the surface of the Moon.

Also known as Transient Lunar Phenomena (TLPs), they have been observed on many occasions, but rarely photographed. On [...]

Breaking News -Here Comes Asteroid 433 Eros Passing Near Earth 27/28/29/30/31JAN2012

Breaking News- NEA (Near Earth Asteroid) Asteroid 433 Eros Passing Near Earth 27/28/29/30/31JAN2012 -
No danger near future!

433 Eros is a near-Earth asteroid (NEA) discovered in 1898, and the first asteroid to be orbited by a probe (in 2000). It is an S-type asteroid approximately 34.4×11.2×11.2 km in size, the second-largest NEA after 1036 Ganymed, and belongs to the Amor group.
Eros is a Mars-crosser asteroid, the first known to come within the orbit of Mars. Objects in such an orbit can remain there for only a few hundred million years before the orbit is perturbed by gravitational interactions. Dynamical integrations suggest that Eros may evolve into an Earth-crosser within as short an interval as 2 million years, and has a roughly 50% chance of doing so over a time scale of 108–109 years.[4] It is a potential Earth impactor,[4] believed to be larger than the impactor that created the Chicxulub Crater that led to the extinction of the dinosaurs.[5]

Eros Parallax Project Begins!

Join the project

Tonight many amateur astronomers and school classes are eagerly awaiting the asteroid Eros, now at its closest to Earth.  From January 28 to February 3 they will take an image of Eros either through a telescope or with a telephoto lens. Photographs of Eros submitted by amateur astronomers around the world will show slight differences in the asteroid’s position due to parallax. Along with each observer’s location, this parallax information will be used to find a precise distance to Eros, just like professional astronomers did in January 1931.
The Eros Parallax Project is first and foremost fun to take part in. You don’t have to be an experienced astrophotographer to be able to make valuable observations. An ordinary SRL camera with telephoto lens, mounted on a tripod, could be enough. Using free, online software you will determine the celestial coordinates of Eros on your images and submit the data to the project website. With the data submitted by you and the other participants, the distance to Eros will be calculated. The instructions on the project website are clear and simple to follow.
The Eros Parallax Project is also a great educational opportunity; the data and submitted images will be made available for classrooms to use to find the distance themselves. This resource will last forever, and will certainly inspire some young astronomers to take part the next time Eros comes close to Earth again. It will also prepare classrooms for the even rarer event coming in June – the transit of Venus. Along with enjoying the night sky, developing observing skills and gaining an understanding of our solar system, participants and the students who benefit will repeat the work of the professional astronomers of the 1930s and learn about real research.
See the Eros Parallax Project web page for more information on how to take part.
