The New World Atlas of Artificial Sky Brightness

July 22, 2016

The New World Atlas of Artificial Sky Brightness
http://cires.colorado.edu/artificial-sky

Light pollution in urban centers creates a sky glow that can blot out the stars. The brighter the area in this zoomable map, the harder it is to see stars and constellations in the night sky. In the United States, national parks are often a refuge for darkness; national parks are shown in purple in the map below. Check out the globe version of the atlas, too (not compatible with Chrome). This map is based on data published June 10 by a team of researchers led by Fabio Falchi and including NOAA’s Chris Elvidge and CIRES’ Kimberly Baugh.

Silicon Valley Astronomy Lectures

June 24, 2016

Silicon Valley Astronomy Lectures
https://www.astrosociety.org/education/silicon-valley-astronomy-lectures

In 1999, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, the SETI Institute, NASA’s Ames Research Center, and the Foothill College Astronomy Program teamed up to create the Silicon Valley Astronomy Lectures. Each lecture, presented at Foothill College in the Silicon Valley, is approximately 90 minutes in length and features various noted astronomers as they make astronomical phenomena accessible to the general public. For example, in November 2015, Harvard University’s Richard Kirshner explained the recent astronomical discovery of cosmic acceleration – growing evidence that the universe is expanding at an increasingly rapid speed. With this resource, users may opt to either download these lectures as podcasts or listen to them online. Alternatively, the lectures in this series are also available on the SVAstronomyLectures YouTube channel and include slides that provide helpful visuals. That said, these lectures do not center on visuals, and thus can be understood just as enjoyably in podcast form. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™.

Thirty Meter Telescope

August 18, 2015

Thirty Meter Telescope
http://www.tmt.org/

Construction has finally started on the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT), a project that has been in planning and fundraising phases for several years. Upon completion, the sky-peering instrument will be “the most advanced and powerful optical telescope on Earth.” There is much to glean about the project from this website. Readers may like to read the History of the TMT project or browse Outreach & Education, both found within the About TMT section. The News Center is another interesting component of the site and features Press Releases, Feature Stories, the TMT Segments Newsletter, and Podcasts. Readers looking for detailed information about The Telescope, Site Information, and Instruments will enjoy the Observatory section, while Multimedia offers some beautiful animations of the telescope-to-be, as well as photographs, and video interviews with scientists who are looking forward to using the TMT to unlock the secrets of the universe.
