May 12 2012 Astronomy Newsletter


Hi everybody!

I've written a special article for Mother's Day. I hope you'll enjoy it even if you're not a mother or don't celebrate on this day.

Mother's Day An Astronomy Bouquet
Flowers from the florist are popular for Mother's Day. But for really stellar mothers, here is a cosmic floral tribute with links to some dazzling astronomical images.

There are two articles already on Copernicus. One tells about his life and the discovery of his burial place after centuries of anonymity: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art40794.asp. The other deals with his revolutionary idea that the planets went around the Sun and not the Earth: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art5685.asp.

But here is a new one which should be easier to read for schoolchildren.

Copernicus for Kids
Since the name of Nicolaus Copernicus is still well known nearly five hundred years after his death, why was his grave unmarked until 2010? Find out about the life of the quiet revolutionary that turned our view of the universe inside out.

*Amazon selling eclipse viewers*

I gave a link to Astronomy without Borders in the last newsletter, but they are selling in bulk. A great buy for schools and other groups! But Universe Today has found that Amazon are selling them in sets of 5, which would be better for most people. Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0074S2R7U/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=universetoday&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B0074S2R7U

*Very big sunspots*

Spaceweather.com reports on a very large sunspot and the high probability of flares. There is also a splendid picture of the Sun (complete with spots) setting over the Eiffel Tower.
