      Observations for an SMA Legacy Survey of the Central Molecular Zone (CMZ) of our Galaxy are currently under way. We plan to map a sq. arcmin region of the CMZ at mm with mJy rms, in the compact and subcompact configurations (~4" or pc resolution), and combine these data with complementary single-dish data taken at APEX and CSO.

Polarization of light in the galaxy as determined from observations of 551 early-type stars by John Scoville Hall Download PDF EPUB FB2

Starlight is the light emitted by stars. It typically refers to visible electromagnetic radiation from stars other than the Sun observable from Earth during the night time although a component of starlight is observable from the Earth during the daytime.

Sunlight is the term used for the Sun's starlight observed during daytime. During nighttime, albedo describes solar reflections from other. The degree of polarization of light from stars in 44 O B associations as a function of interstellar absorption is investigated. It is shown that the character of the dependence of P on AV for.

After these corrections, the observations of 23 polarized stars enabled equatorial polarization position angles to be determined to typical uncertainties of 0.{sup 0}5, and the on-axis.

The observations are consistent with the standard form of interstellar polarization used in our Galaxy with values of Pmax= (±) per cent and λmax= (±)μm, with foreground. The best candidate events for observing polarization are highly magnified events with source stars belonging to the class of cool, giant stars {in which the stellar light is polarized by photon.

As determined by the Hipparcos astrometry satellite, it is approximately light-years (43 pc) from the Sun. [1] Of the ten apparent brightest stars in the night-time sky, [nb 1] Alpha Eridani is the hottest and bluest in color, due to Achernar being of spectral type B.

Achernar has an unusually rapid rotational velocity, causing it to. Betelgeuse is usually the tenth-brightest star in the night sky and, after Rigel, the second-brightest in the constellation of is a distinctly reddish semiregular variable star whose apparent magnitude, varying between + and +, has the widest range displayed by any first-magnitude near-infrared wavelengths, Betelgeuse is the brightest star in the night sky.

For the highly variable Be and shell stars observed, a report of their. The magnetic field of the Galaxy as determined from star-light polarization and from radio-astronomical observations shows on a large scale a general tendency to be parallel to the spiral arms.

Bright and dark filaments, and the form of dark clouds and details in emission nebulae, appear to be more or less parallel to the interstellar magnetic. VY Canis Majoris (abbreviated to VY CMa) is an extreme oxygen-rich (O-rich) red hypergiant (RHG) or red supergiant (RSG) and pulsating variable star located at kiloparsecs (3, ly) away from Earth in the constellation of Canis is one of the largest known stars by radius, and is also one of the most luminous and massive red supergiants, as well as one of the most luminous stars.

Fully convective stars. In the light of interesting recent observations of pre-main-sequence stars and low-mass stars, in this section we deviate from the main focus of this article—non-convective zones—to discuss briefly magnetic fields in fully convective stars.

Furthermore it collects the proceedings of three Joint Discussions and one Joint Meeting all of which are related essentially to observations from space, to external galaxies and to cosmology. Part (TI) contains the proceedings of the four Joint Discussions and one Joint Meeting related essentially to stars and the structure of our Galaxy.

Also, guide stars were often used multiple times for Chandra observations, so many of the stars in the VGUIDE catalog have multiple light curves available from various times in the mission. The catalog is presented as both online data associated with this paper (from which this HEASARC representation was created) and as a public Web interface.
