Sunspots consist of concentrations of strong magnetic flux. The amazing thing now is that businesses, agencies, sports teams, grocery stores, entertainers, social networking sites, and everyone else have realized that they too can discover new knowledge (e.g., predict behaviors or outcomes) from their data collections: ticket sales, purchases, buying patterns, behavior patterns, system logs, and more. Graduate courses in astronomy are open to qualified undergraduates who already have a strong preparation in mathematics, physics, and astronomy.

The engagement of astronomy enters our lives at many levels. These speakers think there might just be something or someone else out there -- and urge us to keep looking for it. Petersburg Astronomy Club, SPAC, Inc., has been meeting continuously since 1927. Include the X-Y axes, the Main Sequence diagonal, the Red Giants and Red Supergiants, and the White Dwarfs. Aims: To provide a basic but rigorous grounding in observational, computational and theoretical aspects of astrophysics to build on the descriptive course in Part I, and to consider evidence for the existence of exoplanets in other Solar Systems.

Classical and Quantum Counting of Microstates. This theory has been abandoned by most astronomers in favor of the big bang theory. Its promised ability to peer back through space and time to the formation of the first galaxies made it the top priority in the 2001 astronomy and astrophysics decadal survey, one of a series of authoritative, ten-year plans drafted by the US astronomy community.

One good freeware program is Celestia, created by a development team led by Chris Laurel. Faculty and students grapple with 3-D printing a habitable structure on Mars. On July 19, 2013, the Cassini spacecraft moved into a part of its orbit where it was behind Saturn, the giant planet blocking the light from the distant Sun. Ultraviolet astronomy refers to observations at ultraviolet wavelengths between approximately 100 and 3200 Å (10 to 320 nm). [36] Light at these wavelengths is absorbed by the Earth's atmosphere, so observations at these wavelengths must be performed from the upper atmosphere or from space.
