Another fireball, CERN/LHC, Venus emerges, TV, IAA Solar Day & BBQ, Weblinks





Hi all,




1. ANOTHER BRIGHT FIREBALL, over England: Another bright fireball was seen and imaged last night, passing over SW and Southern England. No reports yet of any meteorite falls. There is some speculation that it might have been an unusually bright member of the Eta Aquarids meteor shower, which comprise particles from Halley's Comet. But until we have a better picture of the trajectory, we won't know for sure. If it was a piece from the comet, then we would not expect any meteorites. See: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2321836/Green-fireball-meteor-spotted-shooting-UK-150-000-miles-hour.html?ico=sciencetech^headlines
2. CERN at QUB:  The exhibition and series of talks about CERN, the LHC, Higgs Boson etc, continues with a lecture tonight at QUB. Admission is free, but by ticket only. The exhibition is open 9-5 today, and 9 to lunchtime on Friday. Congratulations to Prof Alan Fitzsimmons and his team at QUB who did all the organising for this major event visiting Belfast. Details at: http://www.qub.ac.uk/schools/SchoolofMathematicsandPhysics/NewsandEvents/Title,384694,en.html#d.en.384694
3. Venus emerges to meet Jupiter and  Moon, and be joined by Mercury: Brilliant Venus is now emerging from Solar conjunction into the evening twilight. As it moves further out from the Sun, it will meet Jupiter, the second brightest planet, as it moves to pass behind the Sun. And they will be joined by a lovely crescent Moon, and later by shy twinkling Mercury, to form one of the loveliest conjunctions for many years.
   On the evening of 11 May, look for bright Venus low in the WNW twilight shortly after sunset. From Belfast, at 10pm BST, Venus will be 2deg 20' (almost 5 moon diameters) above the horizon, with a very thin crescent Moon 9 degrees to the left, at about 10.0 on a clock face from Venus. Then look for fainter Jupiter 9 deg above the Moon, at 11pm on a clock face.
   Next evening at the same time, the Moon will have moved to lie 5 deg left of, and a bit below, Jupiter, with Venus almost 20 deg below and right of the Mon.
   Then on 20 May, Mercury will start to creep out from the Sun's glare: at 22.10 BST it will lie just over 3 deg (6 Moon diameters) above the NW horizon, with Venus and Jupiter above and left of it. Then watch over the next week as they change their relative positions, including a lovely close equilateral triangle on 26 May. More details closer to that time.
4. Annual Solar Eclipse, Australia, 9-10 May. Following last year's Total Solar Eclipse, North Queensland will have an annular eclipse on 9 May (10 May local time). The track starts in Western Australia, moves into Northern Territory, then across Far North Queensland and out into the Pacific, where it crosses a few small islands. The track crosses that of last November's TSE in a remote area near the base of the Cape York peninsula. … Maximum duration on the mainland is 4m 40s, and longest on any of the islands is 5m 53s. Cairns will see an 89% partial eclipse.
5. GALILEO: "THE LIFE OF GALILEO", by Bertolt Brecht, in a new version by David Hare, will be performed by the Greenwood Players in St. George's Church, Belfast, 7.30pm, Saturday 11th May 2013.
This is part of the 14th Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival, 2nd--12th May 2013.
