#GasGiant Astronomers have found a #planet whose skies are illuminated by four different suns - the first known of its type. The distant world orbits one pair of #stars and has a second stellar pair revolving around it. It remains a mystery how the Neptune-like world avoids being pulled apart by the gravitational forces generated its four stars. The planet, located just under 5,000 light-years away, has been named #PH1 after the Planet Hunters site. #astronomy #bbcscience

Unprecedented: Amateur astronomers discover a planet with four suns George Dvorsky Two volunteer astronomers have confirmed the existence of a Neptune-like planet that has four suns, making it the first quadruple star system ever discovered. The planet, which is 5,000 light years away from Earth, closely orbits one pair of stars, which in turn forms a unit that revolves around a second pair at a distance of around 1,000 AU. #universe #astronomy #knowledgefix #Justlearned

TEDxPhoenix - Lucianne Walkowicz - Look Up for a Change - a 2011 TEDGlobal Fellow, studies the inscrutable faces of the stars for clues to the inner workings of their hearts. She got her taste for #astronomy as an undergrad at Johns Hopkins, testing detectors for the Hubble #Space Telescope's new camera (installed in 2002). She also learned to love the dark stellar denizens of our galaxy, the red dwarfs, which became the topic of her PhD dissertation at University of Washington. #talks

Moonbow, Milky Way, meteor | #Astronomy | While the Milky Way shone down, a meteor zipped past, adding to the drama. But what’s that at the bottom? A rainbow? At night? It’s a Moonbow, the same thing as a rainbow but with the Moon as the light source. Well, and it’s not raindrops that cause it, but aerosolized water droplets acting as little prisms, breaking the light up into the usual colors. Moonbows are very faint, but they show up in long exposures like this one. #Science #Photography #space

Nicolaus Copernicus | He broke open the medieval idea of an enclosed, Earth-centered universe. He set the stage for all of modern astronomy. His book – De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres) – just before his death in 1543, set the stage for all of modern astronomy. He set that the sun was at the centre of the solar system. #science #space #history #astronomy #maps #justlearned #knowledgefix

An Infant Universe, Born Before We Knew | A view of the cosmic microwave background collected by the European Space Agency’s Planck satellite. The heat map of the cosmos was imprinted on the sky when the universe was just 380,000 years old. Astronomers released the latest and most exquisite baby picture yet of the universe on Thursday, one that showed it to be 80 to 100 million years older and a little fatter. #science #space #discovery #astronomy #news #justlearned
