Extractions: Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format] Search within this book at Google Print Johannes Kepler contributed importantly to every field he addressed. He changed the face of astronomy by abandoning principles that had been in place for two millennia, made important discoveries in optics and mathematics, and was an uncommonly good philosopher. Generally, however, Kepler's philosophical ideas have been dismissed as irrelevant and even detrimental to his legacy of scientific accomplishment. Here, Rhonda Martens offers the first extended study of Kepler's philosophical views and shows how those views helped him construct and justify the new astronomy. Martens notes that since Kepler became a Copernican before any empirical evidence supported Copernicus over the entrenched Ptolemaic system, his initial reasons for preferring Copernicanism were not telescope observations but rather methodological and metaphysical commitments. Further, she shows that Kepler's metaphysics supported the strikingly modern view of astronomical method that led him to discover the three laws of planetary motion and to wed physics and astronomya key development in the scientific revolution. By tracing the evolution of Kepler's thought in his astronomical, metaphysical, and epistemological works, Martens explores the complex interplay between changes in his philosophical views and the status of his astronomical discoveries. She shows how Kepler's philosophy paved the way for the discovery of elliptical orbits and provided a defense of physical astronomy's methodological soundness. In doing so, Martens demonstrates how an empirical discipline was inspired and profoundly shaped by philosophical assumptions.
Extractions: Preface [HTML] or [PDF format] Chapter 1 Search within this book at Google Print This is the definitive treatment of the phenomenology of galaxiesa clear and comprehensive volume that takes full account of the extraordinary recent advances in the field. The book supersedes the classic text Galactic Astronomy that James Binney wrote with Dimitri Mihalas, and complements Galactic Dynamics by Binney and Scott Tremaine. It will be invaluable to researchers and is accessible to any student who has a background in undergraduate physics. The book draws on observations both of our own galaxy, the Milky Way, and of external galaxies. The two sources are complementary, since the former tends to be highly detailed but difficult to interpret, while the latter is typically poorer in quality but conceptually simpler to understand. Binney and Merrifield introduce all astronomical concepts necessary to understand the properties of galaxies, including coordinate systems, magnitudes and colors, the phenomenology of stars, the theory of stellar and chemical evolution, and the measurement of astronomical distances. The book's core covers the phenomenology of external galaxies, star clusters in the Milky Way, the interstellar media of external galaxies, gas in the Milky Way, the structure and kinematics of the stellar components of the Milky Way, and the kinematics of external galaxies.

Extractions: International Astronomy Day: supported by The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada Page Last Updated: 2005 August 29 On that day, professional and amateur astronomers all over the world bring the Universe to the public, through observing sessions, displays, and information booths in malls, science centres and planetaria. The RASC joins groups from nearly 30 countries in celebrating International Astronomy Day. Last year 23 of the 27 RASC Centres celebrated the event in some fashion; this year the objective is 100% participation. It is a fun and educational event for the public and astronomy enthusiasts alike. The full-length celebration known as International Astronomy Week 2006 is May 01-07. Background info on Astronomy Day can be found on the Astronomical League's site, at http://www.astroleague.org/al/astroday/astroday.html As we get closer to A-Day 2006, particulars about activities of the various Centres will be available on the RASC website, at http://rasc.ca/activity/astroday/
Astronomical Leage - Astronomy Day Many of these events are located at nonastronomical sites; shopping malls, parks,urban centers-truly Bringing astronomy to the People. http://www.astroleague.org/al/astroday/astrofacts.html
Extractions: **The theme of Astronomy Day is "Bringing Astronomy to the People," but on occasion there is an additional theme (but not always) when conditions warrant. This additional theme is often decided just a few months prior to Astronomy Day so be sure to check this web site annually for any additional theme. Astronomy Day occurs sometime between mid April and mid May on a Saturday near or before the 1st quarter Moon. Astronomy Week was created to give sponsoring organizations a longer period of time to host special events. Some local Astronomy Week celebrations have actually been longer than just one week.

Astronomy Book Shopping Shop MuseumCompany.com The Cambridge Atlas of astronomy. This is a magnificentbook of detailed information for your discovery of the Universe. http://www.etsimo.uniovi.es/solar/store/astronomy.html
Extractions: "This comprehensive work takes you on a personal tour of the universe using nothing more than a pair of binoculars. More comprehensive than any book currently available, it starts with Earth's nearest neighbor, the moon, and then goes on to explore each planet in the solar system, asteroids, meteors, comets and the sun. Following this, the reader is whisked away into deep space to explore celestial bodies including stars that are known and many sights less familiar. The final chapter includes a detailed atlas of deep-sky objects visible through binoculars. The appendices include guidance on how to buy, care for and maintain astronomical binoculars, tips and hints on using them, and detailed information on several home-made binocular mounts." -
Phil Plait's Bad Astronomy: Bad TV Usually, I can laugh off the things said about astronomy on TV. Other timesthough, what I see The Home shopping Network occasionally sells telescopes. http://www.badastronomy.com/bad/tv/hsn.html
Extractions: Usually, I can laugh off the things said about astronomy on TV. Other times though, what I see makes me boiling mad. Yesterday I saw such a thing. The Home Shopping Network occasionally sells telescopes. This time, they were selling the Galileo 3 inch reflector, a rather small telescope. This kind of telescope, selling for about $100-200, makes a decent starter 'scope, but in general most people would find the view through them disappointing. Planets would be fairly small, and most other objects would be hard to see. The Moon would look nice, and you can view the Sun with them by projecting the image on a piece of paper, but that's about it. Amateurs know these types of telescopes are usually not mounted well, making them shaky, and tend to be hard for a novice to use. This did not stop the people on HSN though. The on-air sales personality gushed about the telescope's ability, just as you might expect. With her was a Galileo company representative, whom I have seen before on that network. I have heard him say shady things, but I've never heard any real lie. That changed yesterday.
