The greatest event of this year is the appearance of Mars
1/30/2017 12:00:00 AM
The greatest event of the year is the appearance of Mars, the Red Planet will return after the absence of 15 years, on the night of Friday, July 27, the meeting is expected since 2003, astronomy fans are waiting for this event from all over the world and will open the observatories of universities and Arab astronomical societies in front of the activists to see the features of this planet and its South Pole, where amateur astronomers with their modest telescopes can distinguish some of the dark features on the surface, in addition to the white ice cap. The encounter between Earth and Mars is repeated every two years, but the greatest encounter is repeated every 15 and 17 years respectively, in which the distance between the two planets will be only 57 million kilometers, a suitable distance for man to send his probes and spacecraft to this planet, exactly how it happened in 2003, where the US spacecraft Pathfinder arrived on the surface of Mars after seven months of flying, on July 4, 2004, to be the vehicle Sujorner the first vehicle to drive over the red planet in the history of mankind

Total solar eclipse in the United States 21 August 2017
8/21/2017 12:00:00 AM
The first total eclipse begins in the Pacific Ocean and ends in the Atlantic Ocean 100 years ago. The total eclipse of the sun crosses America from west to east on Monday (August 21st). NASA spends $ 7.7 million on observing the eclipse from the ISS, Eleven artificial satellites swim in close orbits of the planet Earth, through three equipped aircrafts and video cameras installed on 70 meteorological stations on the various heights on Earth, with the help of 200 trainees to monitor and follow up this eclipse in the United States, to get a large amount of Scientific information through the observation of the phenomenon of Alex P total. It should be noted that this phenomenon can not be observed or observed in the Arab world, including Jordan. The total eclipse of the sun is known as an astronomical phenomenon that occurs when the earth, the moon and the sun are almost straight, and the moon is in the middle between the earth and the sun and at the time of the birth of the new moon in the early phase of the lunar month, the moon casts its shadow on the ground. To watch the eclipse we will see the moon disk. To view a video about the situation through our Facebook page on the following link:

Amazing facts about magnetic stars
5/21/2017 12:00:00 AM
Magnetic stars are supernatural magnetic neutron stars and are characterized by a super-powerful magnetic field and are described by scientists as stars playing hide-and-seek with astronomers. Where it was known to explode without warning, some of them for hours and others for several months before they dim and darken and disappear again! Monitoring explosions from these celestial bodies is a difficult task, where the difficulty lies in timing. How can researchers monitor what has never been seen? So it left NASA to develop a whole piece of equipment to deal with the problem and made the task of making and developing a Russian probe for X-ray time. Which began in December 1995 from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, was designed to monitor the rapid movement of neutron stars, pulsars, x-rays and bursts and X-rays that shine in the sky and disappear. As some pulsars spin more than a thousand times per second and neutron star generates a strong attraction so that make the impact of the collision of the candy Marshalmu surface of the star, for example parallel to the impact of the impact of the collision of a thousand hydrogen bomb Using the RXTE probe, astronomers can study how gravity works near black holes and observe changes in X-ray brightness, which can last for milliseconds or several years. The probe can also monitor the wavelengths of explosions that can not be seen in visible light. The diminishing magnetic field of magnetic stars generates emissions from high-energy electromagnetic radiation, especially X-rays and gamma rays. The theory of the existence of magnetic stars was proposed by Robert Duncan and Christopher Thompson in 1992, but the first gamma-ray burst was recorded and was believed to be a magnetic star that was detected on March 5, 1979. During the decade following this discovery, the hypothesis of the magnetic star became widely accepted as the possible interpretation of soft gamma rays and abnormal X-ray pulses.

The Hubble telescope catches the stars of the Sagittarius
4/26/2017 12:00:00 AM
An astounding picture taken by a sophisticated Hubble telescope showing the constellations of the bow tower is presented in a remarkable detail in a part of the sky. The dark red and bright red stars are distributed around this space and match the generality of thousands of stars and distant galaxies. The two main properties possessed by these stars are amazing: their colors and sudden intersections burst from the center of the most radiant objects. As stars grow and vibrate during the process of creating the image according to the observed data, different stars glow in different colors. These colors vary depending on the temperature of the surface: very hot stars, blue or white. The coldest stars are redder, They are small or very large because they enter into giant red growth stages. When a large star suddenly cools and grows, it is the main cause behind its collapse. The intersections shown by some stars have nothing to do with the stars themselves, or even with any kind of atmospheric disturbance, but they happen as a result of the rotation of the Hubble telescope at the top of the earth's atmosphere as a result of a combination of the same telescope, now known as the light. The Hubble telescope resembles all modern space telescopes. It uses mirrors to capture light and then to form images. Its secondary mirror relies on struts called telescope spiders, which in turn are organized in a cross-shaped shape that deflects the next light. Diffraction is defined as a slight shift of light as it passes near any object. Each intersection in the picture occurs because of one set of stents within the same telescope !, while the photographic inscriptions are not technically accurate but astronomical photographers still care and make sure they are beautiful properties in their images.

A massive asteroid passes by Earth on Wednesday (April 19th)
4/17/2017 12:00:00 AM
The asteroid was discovered about three years ago and will reach its nearest Earth orbit on Wednesday 19 April 2017 to pass Close to it, specifically about 1.1 million miles (1.8 million kilometers), about four and a half times the distance between Earth And the moon. Although there is no chance that this asteroid will collide with our planet, this passage is very close to an asteroid of this magnitude. The asteroid was discovered in May 2014 by astronomers at the Space Observatory of Catalina near Tucson The Arizona project is part of NASA's NEO monitoring program and indicates recent measurements conducted by NASA's mission That the size of the asteroid about 2,000 feet, and that the surface of reflective equivalent to twice the surface of the moon, and until this moment was known only Only a few physical properties of this body are well known, as 2014 JO25 will pass through Earth The sun will be visible in the sky at night after the 19th of April. The passage of this asteroid on April 19 will provide an extraordinary opportunity to study it, and astronomers plan to observe it Around the world to learn everything that can be learned about it, as well as planned to be detected through the radar of the solar system of the solar system NASA in California and the Kashubian Arsibo Telescope of the American National Science Foundation in Puerto Rico, and it is possible to reveal The images that will be obtained from the details of the surface is accurate in the size of simple meters. NASA considered that the passage of the 2014 asteroid JO25 2014 on April 19 is the closest to the Earth's side for about 400 years It will be the closest for about 500 years to come.
