This month the planet Saturn will be closer with the double star Porrima.Porrima,which is also known as Gamma Virginis, is one of the best-known binary stars in the sky, which two bright component stars orbit around each other once every 169 years
Astronomers from the European Southern Observatory (ESO) discovered of a very massive, isolated star, called VFTS 682, in the Large Magellanic Cloud.The star VFTS 682 is one of the more massive stars ever known, because it is about 150 times the mass of the Sun
The studies by scientists from Swinburne University of Technology showed that star formation in Milky Way and the nearby spiral galaxy Andromeda soon must be stoped For their studies scientists took the evaluation of colors index in system BV intensity of star formation and stellar mass for the Milky Way and the Andromeda galaxy
David Bennett’s theam of astronomers discovered a new class of astronomical objects Jupiter’s like dark exoplanet, which don’t related gravitationally with the stars and which independently drifting on space.
The European Space Agency’s Herschel infrared space observatory detected the extraordinary winds with streaming molecular gas, which are the material needed to make new stars, away from galaxies.
Scientists have discovered a binary system of two dying stars, known as white dwarfs,which will be collide and birth to one new star. The newly identified binary system, designated SDSS J010657.39–100003.3, is located about 7,800 light-years away in the constellation Cetus, the Whale, and was discovered as part of a survey program conducted with the MMT Observatory on Mount Hopkins, Ariz.
Exoplanet WASP-12b was discovered in April 2008. This is planet, whose radius is about 1.8 radius of Jupiter is very close to its star, their shares only 3.4 million kilometers, the temperature at the surface of the WASP-12b hovering around 2.2 thousand degrees Celsius.
In February on the Sun occurred the largest flare over the past 4 years.Things like that, known as X- class flare, they may even influence the communication on Earth.
