Astronomy – Star Gazing in Northern New Jersey

 Astronomy  Comments Off on Astronomy – Star Gazing in Northern New Jersey
Jan 112016
 

For thousands of years people have looked up at night into the void of outer space and gazed at the stars and planets.

In Northern New Jersey there are quite a few of these people as evidenced by the number of amateur astronomy clubs. With a current star chart and a good cloudless night, anyone can begin learning about the universe we live in. A star chart for your area can be found on the Internet or in your local paper. The New York Times publishes a star chart weekly in the Sunday edition that is good for the following week. Binoculars are an excellent next step for beginners who then may move on to a telescope.

In 2002 and 2003, a good subject for observation is Saturn. New Jersey and the rest of the Northern Hemisphere is tilted toward Saturn where it is high above the horizon, buildings and trees. Saturn’s light is passing though the least amount of atmosphere creating the perfect conditions for viewing. Last year, Mars, named for the Roman god of war, was prominent in the sky. Now Saturn, the bringer of wisdom, rules the night sky. Saturn has the most moons of any planet with more than twenty and was one of the first objects observed by Galileo through the newly invented telescope in 1610.

To Galileo, Saturn’s unusual shape presented a mystery until another astronomer, Christiaan Huygens, correctly identified Saturn as a sphere with disc-like rings around it. The space between the outermost and the inner ring is called the Cassini Division which was discovered in 1676. The spacecraft Pioneer 11 and Voyager 2 visited Saturn between 1979 and 1981. The Cassini-Huygens Satellite is on it’s way to Saturn and it’s moon Titan to begin orbiting Saturn on July 1, 2004.

The time Saturn takes to go once around the sun, a Saturn year, is a little more than 29 Earth years. The last time Saturn and it’s rings were in the same position was 1972. During the mid to late 1980’s, Saturn was very low in the sky and viewing was diminished by the haze of the Earth’s atmosphere.

This year, the Earth will be the closest to Saturn since 1975. The rings change their tilt because Saturn’s axis, like Earth, is tilted at an angle to the sun. The rings in the current position clearly display the Cassini Division. As Saturn orbits the sun, the tilt causes it to have different seasons similar to what happens one Earth. This change is evidenced by the position of the rings. In the time lapse images above, the Hubble Space Telescope recorded this change over a five year period beginning in 1996 and continuing to the year 2000.

This chart shows the predicted sky conditions for the next two days, cloudy or clear for astronomical viewing in Wawayanda State Park in West Milford, New Jersey. Each block represents the hour of day with the day and time below. The white areas represent overcast skies, light blue or indigo colored areas are partially covered skies, dark blue zones are clear skies.

New low in Russia-NATO relations: Analysts

 NATO  Comments Off on New low in Russia-NATO relations: Analysts
Apr 032015
 

MOSCOW: Since Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine, relations between Moscow and NATO have dramatically worsened. The Kremlin has threatened a range of responses if NATO moves more forces into Lithuania, Latvia or Estonia.

Mr Evgengy Volk, a political analyst, said: “I believe that at present, the relations between Russian and NATO are at the worst point since the end of the Cold War. I believe that during the Cold War, the relationship was actually sometimes better.”

Since early March, NATO warships have participated in naval drills in the Black Sea. The US has also delivered over 120 armoured units, including tanks, to Latvia in March.

But according to the NATO’s Secretary-General, Russian military flights close to alliance members’ airspace in Europe were intercepted more than 400 times last year.

In mid-December last year, a Russian military jet with its location determining transponders switched off nearly collided with a passenger plane over Sweden.

“I think that the reality is that when youre flying military aircraft around Europe with the transponders turned off, theres always a danger of another black swan event,” said political analyst Chris Weafer. “So long as these exercises are continuing, theres always the potential for another accident that can also negatively impact the situation.

Earlier in March, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the Northern Fleet onto full combat alert in a ‘snap readiness exercise’ in the Arctic as the US and several Eastern European NATO countries conducted a series of military exercises near Russia’s border.

Russia has been spending more money on its military and has been boosting military capabilities which were weakened during the 1990s. When Vladimir Putin became president in 2000, Russia spent more than US$9 billion on its military. This has since risen 10 times and is likely to increase again this year despite a sluggish economy.

Hubble telescope spots ocean on Jupiter moon Ganymede

 Hubble Telescope  Comments Off on Hubble telescope spots ocean on Jupiter moon Ganymede
Mar 142015
 

Traci Watson, Special for USA TODAY 1:32 p.m. EDT March 12, 2015

The biggest moon in the solar system harbors a salty ocean beneath its frozen surface, according to a study that examined the moon’s flickering auroras to probe its interior.

A number of worlds in our solar system are thought to have oceans. But this is the first clear-cut data of its kind to suggest that a sea lies hidden under the icy shell of Jupiter’s moon Ganymede, which is 50% bigger than our own moon. Scientific models predicted an ocean on Ganymede, and when NASA’s Galileo spacecraft visited Ganymede in the 1990s, it collected data that hinted at an ocean. But new images from the Hubble Space Telescope offer strong confirmation of a liquid body of water inside Ganymede, scientists say.

Galileo’s observations “provide inconclusive evidence for the ocean,” says study co-author Joachim Saur of the University of Cologne. “The Hubble data require an ocean.”

Finding an ocean on a celestial body hundreds of millions of miles from Earth is no easy feat. Saur and his team turned to the space-going Hubble, which trained its keen eyes on Ganymede in 2010 and again in 2011. The Hubble focused on Ganymede’s two auroras, shimmering patterns in the sky similar to the earthly phenomenon known as the Northern Lights. A person standing on Ganymede’s surface and looking up would see a red glow, Saur says.

Ganymede has two auroras, one around its north pole and one around its south pole, both created in part by the moon’s own magnetic field. These auroras don’t stay fixed in place. Instead, they wander slightly across Ganymede’s face. With the help of supercomputers, the scientists calculated how much Ganymede’s auroras would shift if the moon had a salty sea. A layer of salty water could carry electrical current, generating another magnetic field that would affect the auroras.

The researchers found that the aurora shift witnessed by Hubble nicely matched the prediction of what should happen if Ganymede has an ocean. Just as importantly, the Hubble data did not match the prediction for an ocean-less Ganymede, the scientists reported online last month in the Journal of Geophysical Research.

Ganymede’s ocean is sandwiched between two layers of ice. That’s not particularly hospitable to life, says planetary scientist William McKinnon of Washington University in St. Louis, who didn’t work on the new study. But Saur says it’s still possible that Ganymede’s waters are habitable.

Domain Group 2015 Prediction: Houses: 5-7 per cent Apartments: 5-7 per cent

The Northern Beaches market is set for a much-needed boost over the next few years as construction of the controversial new hospital at Frenchs Forest gets underway, bringing with it extra infrastructure and spin-off medical businesses.

Angus Raine, executive chairman and chief executive of Raine & Horne, says prices in suburbs such as Forestville, Frenchs Forest and Davidson have risen by 10 per cent since preliminary work started on the hospital last year. “With lower interest rates, we see no reason why this level of growth won’t continue in 2015,” Raine says.

The 488-bed Northern Beaches Hospital is scheduled to open in 2018.

Raine predicts Forestville, Frenchs Forest, Davidson and nearby Killarney Heights could produce price growth of 10 per cent or more in 2015.

“This is especially the case with the state government confirming it is going ahead with a road underpass, a road widening on Warringah Road and other upgrades in support of the hospital,” Raine says.

Sam Pfafflin from Raine & Horne Forestville/Frenchs Forest says properties near the hospital will be highly sought-after by specialists, GPs and other medical businesses.

The northern beaches was one of the underperformers of the Sydney property market last year, says Dr Andrew Wilson, the chief economist for the Domain Group. “Even though [the Northern Beaches] did record a quite healthy prices growth it wasn’t at the same level as the budget areas or the mid-price range areas,” says Wilson.
