The 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast is a project that is publishing one podcast per day, 5 to 10 minutes in duration, for all 365 days of the year. The podcast episodes are written, recorded and produced by people around the world. We are looking for individuals, schools, companies and clubs to provide 5 - 10 minutes of audio for the daily podcast. You can do as few as 1 episode or up to 12 episodes (one per month, subject to our editorial discretion). Our goal is to encourage people to sign up for a particular day (or days) of the year.

    Today's 2 topics:
    - In 1961, a Polish astronomer, Kazimierz Kordylewski, reported the discovery of dust clouds at the Earth-Moon L4 and L5 points.
    - The Sun's surface has bubbles of hot ionized gas which are expelled into space forming the solar wind.

    Deep Astronomy - The Care and Feeding of Black Hole Sagittarius A*

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0J_1e3p8_Q
    Published on Nov 9, 2018.
    New observations from the GRAVITY and SINFONI instrument on the Very Large Telescope have given us unprecedented observations of material falling into the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.

    Weekly Space Hangout - Guest: Cole Miller

    Weekly Space Hangout - Guest: Cole Miller

    https://youtu.be/LH58Py4_jBA
    Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain )
    Special Guest: This week we are airing Fraser's interview with Dr. Cole Miller, Professor of Astronomy at the University of Maryland, College Park. Dr. Miller led one of two separate teams that analyzed Neutron star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER) data - specifically that for pulsar called J0030+0451 (J0030) in the constellation Pices - and were able to map the surface features of a pulsar for the first time.
     
    Dr. Miller's research focuses on the theory and modeling of high-energy radiation from neutron stars and black holes. Data interpreted using his theoretical models have provided the first evidence for the existence of an innermost stable circular orbit around neutron stars and black holes (a key prediction of strong-gravity general relativity) and evidence for a 2.3 solar mass neutron star, which constrains strongly the equation of state of matter at high densities.
     
    Cole's research interests extend beyond compact objects to subjects such as the use of gravitational lensing to study different classes of cosmological sources. He has used lensing to place limits on the average redshift of gamma-ray bursts and to constrain dark energy parameters based on observations in the Hubble Deep Field. He has also investigated the effects of accretion by primordial compact objects on the power spectrum of the cosmic microwave background. In particular, he has placed limits on the contributions of such objects to dark matter and on the degree to which ionization from accretion can be used to explain the weakness of the second acoustic peak as observed with BOOMERanG. Most recently, he has collaborated with Doug Hamilton on models of intermediate-mass black holes and their implications for gravitational radiation.
    Regular Guests:
    Dr. Morgan Rehnberg ( http://www.morganrehnberg.com/ & @MorganRehnberg )
    Alex Teachey ( https://alexteachey.wordpress.com/ & @alexteachey )
    This week's stories:
    - The search for exomoons.
    - The launch of Solar Orbiter.
    - The new White House NASA budget.
    - Boeing StarLiner problems
    - SpaceX nabs a new executive from NASA.
    - CHEOPS first light.

    Awesome Astronomy - February Part 1

    Awesome Astronomy - February Part 1

    Paul Hill, Ralph Wilkins and Jenifer Millard host. Damien Phillips and John Wildridge produce.
    The Discussion: Ralph visits and records from The Cradle of Aviation Museum in Long Island, New York, we enjoyed some great skies with good weather in the UK, Betelgeuse still hasn’t gone pop – though we’re still watching, and NASA has an open house day that you can attend (except it was two days ago…)
    The News: Rounding up the astronomy news this month we have:
    - An evidence based look at Starlink.
    - Tracking molecules from birth to arrival in our solar system.
    - An enigmatic Type 1a supernova.
    - An interesting 14 millisecond gravitational wave detection.
    - Goodbye Spitzer Space telescope.
    The Sky Guide: This month we’re taking a look at the constellation of Lynx with a guide to its history, how to find it, a couple of deep sky objects and a round up of the solar system objects on offer in February.
    A guide to the electromagnetic spectrum: In this series we’ll take a look at the electromagnetic spectrum, what, it is, what is shows us and why it’s so important to astronomers. This month we start with a quick and simple explanation.
    http://www.awesomeastronomy.com
    Bio: Awesome Astronomy is a podcast beamed direct from an underground bunker on Mars to promote science, space and astronomy (and enslave Earth if all goes well).

    Cosmic Savannah Ep. 13: The SAAO

    Hosted by Dr. Jacinta Delhaize & Dr. Daniel Cunnama.
    In our final episode for Season 1, we are joined by Professor Petri Vaisanen, Director of the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO). Petri discusses the path to his current role including his research on galaxy evolution and some of the exciting discoveries along the way. Petri also explains his current role, his vision for astronomy in South Africa, and some of the exciting developments occurring at SAAO and around the world! We are then joined by Allen Versfeld who runs the Urban Astronomer podcast and who does an excellent job of highlighting the astronomy in South Africa. For more info, links and pics see the show notes at www.thecosmicsavannah.com!
