November 1 2015 Astronomy Newsletter


Hi everybody

Here's the latest article from the Astronomy site at BellaOnline.com.

Edge of the Sky book review
Robert Trotta lectures in astrophysics at Imperial College London. He's also a science communicator who likes to share his knowledge with the public. So he set himself the task of writing about the Universe using only words from a list of the 1000 most common English words. How did he do?

The Up Goer Five text editor is here if you want to have a go: http://splasho.com/upgoer5/

And here is last week's article apologies for the missed newsletter, I was traveling.

ABC of Astronomy F is for Fusion
The Sun is more than just a ball of burning gas. It's also a giant nuclear reactor. Find out about the fusion that supplies the energy to support life on Earth, and the solar flares that can disrupt it. Intense magnetic fields create sunspots and faculae, and suspend filaments a million miles long.

The Halloween asteroid that whizzed by us last night is probably a dead comet. It came close to us in astronomical terms, but the Moon is closer and not in danger of hitting us. Yet it is still somewhat worrying that TB145 was only discovered a few weeks ago. Appropriately for Halloween, it looks a bit like a skull in this image: http://www.slate.com/content/dam/slate/blogs/bad_astronomy/2015/10/30/2015tb145_skull.jpg.CROP.original-original.jpg But that's more imagination and a fuzzy picture than anything significant!

Please visit http://astronomy.bellaonline.com/Site.asp for even more great content about Astronomy.

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/forums/323/1/Astronomy or in response to this email message. I welcome your feedback!

Do pass this message along to family and friends who might also be interested. Remember it's free and without obligation.

I wish you clear skies.
