A new national facility at ESO’s La Silla Observatory has successfully made its first observations. The ExTrA telescopes will search for and study Earth-sized planets orbiting nearby red dwarf stars. ExTrA’s novel design allows for much improved sensitivity compared to previous searches. Astronomers now have a powerful new tool to help in the search for […]
The Echelle SPectrograph for Rocky Exoplanet and Stable Spectroscopic Observations (ESPRESSO) has successfully made its first observations. Installed on ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile, ESPRESSO will search for exoplanets with unprecedented precision by looking at the minuscule changes in the light of their host stars. For the first time ever, an instrument will […]
Date of sighting: December 3, 2017Location of sighting: Yellow Knife, Northwest territory, CanadaSource: MUFON #88539This beam of light occurred during the supermoon…a rare time when the moon is closest to the earth. The glowing is over the Great Slave Lake, which is a sign that on its lake floor is an alien base. This UFO apparently rose up […]
For the first time, NASA scientists have detected light tied to a gravitational-wave event, thanks to two merging neutron stars in the galaxy NGC 4993, located about 130 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Hydra.
ESO’s fleet of telescopes in Chile have detected the first visible counterpart to a gravitational wave source. These historic observations suggest that this unique object is the result of the merger of two neutron stars. The cataclysmic aftermaths of this kind of merger — long-predicted events called kilonovae — disperse heavy elements such as gold […]
Date of discovery: Sept 19, 2017Location of discovery: Rho Ophiuchi cloud NebulaSource: BBC News at http://www.bbc.com/news/in-pictures-41231623 This face was found by me today when I was dreading the BBC News. Sometimes the most amazing discoveries are left undiscovered…right in front of our own noses. This photo unknowingly contains a giant alien face in the nebula. This is the […]
