In addition the position of planets, asteroids and comets are shown. The purpose of this program is to prepare different sky maps for a particular observation. The software itself is released under the GPL license. The different catalog data are generally public domain but an acknowledgment to the original catalog author is require if you use this data for your research. You are free to use any chart or print produced by the program for any use, commercial or not (blog, web publication, printed book,…).

Universe Today — Space and astronomy news The Falcon 9 and Dragon capsule stand ready for launch prior to the detection of a helium leak in one of the engines forcing a scrub of the launch attempt on April 14. 2014 – now reset to April 18, 2014. Credit: NASA and SpaceX are marching forward towards a Friday, April 18 liftoff attempt for the Falcon 9 rocket sending a commercial Dragon cargo craft on the company’s third resupply mission to the International Space Station following the scrubbed launch attempt on Monday, April 14 – forced by the discovery of a Helium gas leak inside the rocket during the latter stages of the countdown. An on time blastoff of the upgraded Falcon 9 sets the stage for an Easter Sunday rendezvous and berthing of the Dragon resupply spacecraft at the massive orbiting outpost packed with almost 5000 pounds of science experiments and supplies for the six person crew. However the weather prognosis is rather [click to continue…] The newly-confirmed extrasolar planet has been dubbed Kepler-186f.

C2A - Cartographie stellaire C2A (Computer Aided Astronomy) est un logiciel de cartographie stellaire qui permet de composer à l'écran des vues détaillées de champs stellaires. Il n'est disponible que pour le système d'exploitation Microsoft Windows (toutes versions). L'objectif de ce logiciel est de prendre en compte les principales bases de données disponibles afin de permettre la préparation d'observations sur des champs de petites tailles ainsi que la réalisation de travaux d'astrométrie et de photométrie. C2A constitue aussi un logiciel de Planetarium simple à manipuler avec de très nombreuses fonctionnalités. L'utilisateur peut définir ses propres catalogues d'objets, soit sous forme textuelle, soit sous forme compilée. C2A est un logiciel gratuit. Pour télecharger C2A, allez dans la section Distributions de la page Téléchargements.

General Astronomy Astronomy is the scientific study of the universe as a whole, and of celestial bodies and the underlying physics governing these bodies. It is in some sense one of the oldest of the natural sciences, having been practiced by even very ancient civilizations, but it is also among the most modernized of the sciences, having extensively exploited both advances in technology and the rise of space exploration. The progress of technology has dramatically improved our understanding of the universe, revealing a richer tapestry than had ever been imagined before. This Wikibook introduces the advanced secondary or beginning university student to that tapestry and the process that revealed it to humanity, presenting astronomy not only as a field of knowledge, but also as a human endeavor in science. Table of Contents[edit] References Exercises Also on Wikimedia[edit] Wikibooks is a Web site where this and other free textbooks are developed.
