Lyrid Meteor Shower is Finally here; Don’t Miss the Shooting Stars

The annual Lyrid meteor shower is starting. Every year it is realized about April 16 to 25. And this year it is going to fall on the morning of April 22 “with little or no interference from the waxing moon” as mentioned Earthsky. It is supposed to fall the greatest number of meteors during the few hours before dawn. You have an opportunity to see from about 10 to 2o Lyrid meteors an hour at the shower’s peak on the morning of April 22. In 2018, the waxing moon will set before the primetime morning hours. Earthsky indicated “In 1982, American observers did see an outburst of nearly 100 Lyrid meteors per hour.

Signals from the First Stars in the Universe

Signal from the First Stars in the Universe

For the first time Scientists detected a signal from stars emerging in the early universe. Researchers discovered that ancient suns were active within 180 million years of the Big Bang with the help of a radio antenna. Astronomers from prestigious institutes made a disclosure with their Experiment to Detect the Global EoR (Epoch of Reionization) Signature (EDGES) project. The head of the investigator on the project Judd Bowman said “Finding this miniscule signal has opened a new window on the early universe”, and added that telescopes could not far enough to directly image such ancient stars, but they had seen when they turned on in radio waves arriving from space.

Top 10 Largest Stars In The Universe

Stars are massive sphere of plasma held together by gravity. As you know Earth’s nearest star is the Sun at the center of the Solar System. It has a diameter of about 1,392,684 km.However, compared to many of the other stars discovered in the Universe our central stars is very small. Some other stars are visible from Earth during the night, appearing as a multitude of fixed luminous points due to their huge distance. Historically, the most prominent stars were grouped into constellations, and the brightest stars gained proper names. The below is the list of top 10 largest stars known in the universe:

The Mysteries of Sirius

Since ancient times and across multiple civilizations, Sirius located in the constellation CanisMajor – also known as the Big Dog, has been surrounded with a mysterious lore. Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky, because of both its intrinsic luminosity and its proximity to Earth at a distance of 8.5 light year. The name “Sirius” is derived from the Ancient Greek: Σείριος Seirios (“glowing” or “scorcher”). Artifacts of ancient civilizations have revealed that Sirius was of a great importance in astronomy, mythology and occultism. Mystery schools consider it to be “sun behind the sun” and, therefore, the true source of our sun’s potency.

Gold on Earth could appear because of collision of dead stars

All gold on Earth could result from space accident between super dense dead stars. Gold on Earth it is shrouded in mystery as it can’t be formed in stars as easier elements, such as carbon and iron. But the secret can be opened now. As approves new research, collision of the dead stars could become the catalyst of creation of valuable metal. By the words of leading author of research Edo Berger they consider that the amount of the gold which made and has been thrown out during merge of two neutron stars, can be comparable weighing 10 Moon – quite decently. Berger and his colleagues studied short gamma splash which was noticed on Earth orbit by the spacecraft of NASA of Swift at the beginning of June.
