"I have looked further into space than any human being did before me" - William Herschel The William Herschel Museum is dedicated to the many achievements of the Herschels, who were distinguished astronomers as well as talented musicians. It was from this house, using a telescope of his own design that William discovered the planet Uranus in 1781. His observations helped to double the known size of the solar system. Following a tradition of the great astronomers of the Renaissance he pushed forward the science of building telescopes. He was rewarded for his work by King George III, and also received the Copley Medal. Caroline also made a huge contribution to the field of astronomy. The work of the Herschels clearly had an impact on modern science and space exploration. To quote from the patron of the museum Patrick Moore, "William Herschel was the first man to give a reasonably correct picture of the shape of our star-system or galaxy; he was the best telescope-maker of his time, and possibly the greatest observer who ever lived".

Name: Caroline Herschel Birth Date: March 16, 1750 Death Date: January 9, 1848 Place of Birth: Hanover, Germany Nationality: English Gender: Female Occupations: astronomer Caroline Herschel Main Biography Caroline Herschel (1750-1848) is noted for her scientific annals in astronomy more than for her mathematical knowledge. Yet, while her accomplishments were heralded in astronomy, Herschel deserves recognition in both fields. She never received formal mathematical training, which only serves to accent the dimension of her accomplishments and determination. Caroline Lucretia Herschel was born on March 16, 1750 in Hanover, Germany. She was a homely child who received little love and encouragement from her mother. Her father, Isaac Herschel, was a musician in the Hanoverian Guard. He encouraged her to obtain an education. She was, as he kept telling her, so homely and without money, no one would marry her until she was older and had more character. Herschel was a literate young woman, but did not receive a formal education. At the age of 17, her father died and she fell under her mother's domination. Herschel led a harsh life until her brother William, who was eleven years her senio.....

BellaOnline's Astronomy Editor Caroline Herschel - First Female Astronomer Originally aspiring to a career as a singer, Caroline Lucretia Herschel instead became one of the world’s first female scientists. By herself, and in conjunction with her brother, astronomer William Herschel, Caroline helped to redefine the science of astronomy and bring it into the mainstream.
Caroline and her brother made a number of notable contributions to the still-fledgling science of astronomy, chiefly expanding the field to include not just the solar system, but also the stars, the nebulae and the cosmos. Together, they also discovered the satellites of Saturn and Uranus.
In 1783, Caroline discovered three new nebulae, and from 1786 to 1797, using her own telescope, Caroline discovered eight comets, the first known to have been discovered by a woman. She also compiled a complete index of the star catalogue of John Flamsteed, England’s first Astronomer Royal. Later, she worked with her nephew John Herschel, also an astronomer, and for him compiled a new catalogue of nebulae.

(IAAC) Caroline Herschel
Hi Lew, etal; A very nice night last night out in the Arizona desert about 50 miles from central Phoenix. Just scanning around with the 6 inch RFT. I did post a few observations. I have a question about Caroline Herschel. I think I would like to observe or re-observe all the objects she discovered. I know NGC 7789, 891, 205 (M110) and some other smaller clusters in CAS are on the list. Does anyone have any others? I am assuming she found these objects while comet hunting, I believe she used a 6 inch made for her by William for that purpose. Does anyone know anything more about that scope? Considering an article and planning to put it together over the next several months and wondering if anyone has done all of her objects? Sounds like fun. Clear Skies all; Steve Coe Follow-Ups

The Great Sexperiment Caroline Herschel Caroline Herschel
Caroline Herschel (1750-1848) stayed all her life in the shadow of her brother William (1738-1822). They did their astronomical work together, but he received the patent of nobility and the royal favours. They were born in Hannover, Germany, and received a musical formation. They emigrated to England, where their hobby, astronomy, soon became more important than their profession as musicians.
In 1781 they discovered the planet Uranus. William proposed to name it George, for the reigning English king George III. The astronomical community disapproved, but it yielded William a royal pension of 200 pounds a year. This made it possible for them to become full-time astronomers. William did the observations, Caroline the spherical trigonometry. When William was absent, she observed herself.
With royal funds, they built the largest telescope in the world, with a forty feet mirror. With it, they doubled the dimensions of the known universe.
Caroline has eight comets on her own name, the first one in 1786. She edited two important star catalogues. Six year after William, she too received a royal pension, a quarter of her brother’s.

Caroline Herschel Caroline Herschel era una cantante, una matematica e un' astronoma Caroline Herschel nacque in Germania nel 1750. Era una di sei fratelli. Suo padre era un musicista. Voleva che tutti i suoi figli studiassero il francese, la matematica e la musica. La madre di Caroline pensava invece che l'educazione fosse una perdita di tempo per una ragazza. Faceva fare a Caroline la maggior parte dei lavori domestici. Quando aveva dieci anni, Caroline si ammalò di una malattia chiamata tifo. Questa malattia bloccò la sua crescita. Non diventò mai più alta di 1 metro e 30 centimetri. Quando aveva ventidue anni, Caroline andò a vivere con suo fratello in Inghilterra. Il fratello di Caroline, William, le insegnò il canto e la matematica. William era molto interessato all'astronomia e insegnò a Caroline anche questa scienza. Caroline Herschel aiutava il fratello nel suo lavoro. Imparò perfino come levigare il vetro per costruire un telescopio . Cominciò a usare i telescopi anche per fare lei stessa delle osservazioni e delle scoperte. Caroline Herschel scoprì tre nuove nebulose dove si formano stelle. Fu anche la prima donna a scoprire una

William and Caroline Herschel in Bath, England Royal Crescent Sunrise from Parade Park Roman Globe ca. 150 A.D. The area now occupied by the city of Bath has been known from prehistoric times for its natural hot springs. These were believed to have curative properties and were considered sacred by the ancient Celtic tribes. When the Romans conquered Britain in the first century A.D. they established an elaborate bath and spa complex at the site. Many Roman ruins remain, the most extensive in Britain. After the fall of Rome the building complex fell into disarray, although the springs continued to attract people seeking cures for various physical ailments throughout the Middle Ages. At the end of the eighteenth century, the springs were "discovered" by the English upper class, and a handsome city designed around the then current ideas of neo-classical (or Georgian ) architecture came into being. This is largely the city that we see today, and it is the city that William and Caroline Herschel set up residence in 1766. Herschel's Home

Sœur de William Herschel, Caroline est la cinquième enfant de cette famille de musiciens. En 1767, lorsque son père meurt, elle est obligée de tenir maison; elle travaille littéralement comme une esclave. En 1772, William, émigré en Angleterre depuis quelques années, l'invite à venir le rejoindre à Bath. Elle accepte immédiatement et, une fois installée là-bas, elle entreprend une carrière de chanteuse. Cependant, son frère devenu obsédé par l'astronomie réclame constamment son assistance, oubliant les torts qu'il cause à sa carrière. En 1782, William se consacre désormais uniquement à l'astronomie. Il déménage au voisinage de Windsor Castle, où Caroline l'accompagne, mettant ainsi fin à sa carrière musicale. En 1788, William se marie et Caroline est obligée d'aller habiter ailleurs. Cette épreuve est dure à accepter, mais elle n'en continue pas moins sa collaboration au travail astronomique de son frère. Lorsque celui-ci meurt en 1822, elle retourne à Hanovre, où elle habite jusqu'à sa mort. Jusqu'à la fin de ses jours, elle est alerte et bien portante. En 1828, la Royal Society lui décerne sa médaille d'or.

Besides and before assisting her brother, William Herschel, in his great Deep Sky survey starting in late 1782, Caroline Herschel herself was an avid astronomical observer, and discoverer of comets (she originally found 8 of them) and deepsky objects. William Herschel has included her discoveries in his catalog , and assigned numbers to them.
