  1. Back in March I was granted an observatory code ( Q69 ) by the Minor Planet Center ( MPC ) and since then I have been spending all my available telescope time ( which due the weather has admittedly not been very much ) to capturing images of asteroids, that the MPC is interested in recieving data for, and sending in the positions that I have determined. Mostly I have been focused on asteroids that have not been observed/reported on during their current return to visibility. 2014 LA21 was my first after getting my code ... Here I was the first to report astrometry for 2014 LA21 since 2016 - not like discovering a new comet I imagine but still, a small achievement and a nice feeling You may have noticed that I don't as yet supply any brightness data; this is because I have not figured out how I can do this reliably ( most of the asteroids I am chasing are very dim and so my 4 minute exposures tend to spread them a little making them hard to compare to nearby stars ). I have been getting reasonably good position data though, with a "variation to average path" across the samples of sub 1 arcsec ( typically less than 0.5 and sometimes down as low 0.15 ) .... Anyway, I was just thought I would let people know what I have been up to and why you have not seem me latley over on deep sky imaging forum and also, I was wondering if there is anyone else here on Stargazerslounge doing the same thing ...
  2. The New Cosmos - David J Eicher: CUP ISBN 978-1-107-06885-8 I picked this book up at the Cambridge Univ Press book shop in Cambridge just before Christmas intending to read it over the holiday period. That did not happen. David Eicher writes for the Astronomy magazine in the US and this rather nice hardback tome is a series of 17 articles on the latest science with regards to many astronomical topics. It starts with an intro 'The awakening of astronomy' and then proceeds outwards from Earth, 'How the Sun will die', End of Life on earth', How the Moon formed' It covers both planetary and deep space. Excellent articles on the latest science of the Milky Way, how big is the Universe and then onto Dark Matter, Dark Energy and Black Holes. Each chapter is stand alone and the book can be picked up and put down, the chapters cover a short history of the subject and then introduce the latest science and thinking.. There are some beautiful illustrations and photos. There is just about something for everyone and I would give it a 9/10.
  3. I found this quote From Arthur C. Clarke a couple of weeks ago and haven’t stopped thinking about the quote is “ two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.” Which one would be the most terrifying to discover? I don’t want to get too deep in this subject but thought would be an interesting topic to discuss not sure what type of “life” it would be though. If we discovered something. one of the downsides of reading about cosmology is that once in a while ( or most times) you get the existential depression . But it’s one of the most fascinating things to read about.
  4. Okay so I chose to take a year to decide which career to study, I've always been interested in physics and astronomy but I think I will go on and pick Chemistry. Any tips or ideas on what to do after?
  5. A quick reminder to those of you in South Norfolk and North Suffolk that this Saturday is the yearly "Children's Event". This year NorwichAS will be joined by the East Anglian Rocketry Society, the British Science Association and Plan Eat Save from Norfolk County Council! Talks, Rocket making / Launching, a Minecraft tour and lots more. Thanks, Chris
  6. To my understanding, matter is just crystallized energy. So is dark matter the crystallized form of dark energy? Sorry if this is a bit of a stupid question, just couldn't get it off my mind. Any answers would be much appreciated - thanks.
