The Midnight Culmination of the Pleiades
The focus will be on constellation Taurus' storied star cluster, the Pleiades, as it makes its midnight culmination in the Northern Hemisphere at 7:52pm Eastern time (00:52 UTC). Join Helen Avery as she shares tales from antiquity of this foreboding occurrence. For millennia, this collection of stars has inspired stories around the globe – tales of seven sisters, seven orphans, seven wives or seven seeds have been shared around fires from North America to Australia. Helen continues the tradition of those ancient storytellers by recounting the legends of the Pleiades and examining their deep significance in the evolution of humanity. To orient ourselves in the vastness of our night sky, Helen will discuss how you can most easily locate the Pleiades using only your eyes. En route to our wondrous star cluster, 444 light years from Earth, we’ll be stopping off with our telescopes at Orion’s Belt, and Aldebaran, the eye of the bull Taurus – the constellation in which our beloved Seven lie. Please join our live audio broadcast as we journey deep into time and space or let us be your soundtrack as you take us out with you under the stars.Do you have any questions for Helen about the Midnight Culmination of The Pleiades? Want to share your stories or photos of the cluster, or your memories of seeing it? Head to our online forum (under the Community icon) and join the Livecasts discussion.

How to Hold a Dead Star in Your Hand
Kimberly Arcand, CfA, Visualization Lead for NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory; Tom Sgouros, Manager of the Brown University Virtual Reality LabObjects in space are rather far away. The Moon is our closest celestial neighbor at nearly a quarter million miles from Earth, and the nearest star, our Sun, is 93 million miles away. These extreme distances mean that it’s usually impossible to touch real objects in space (meteorites that fall to the ground notwithstanding). But now, thanks to data from some of our favorite observatories, anyone can hold a dead star in their hand. Here’s how. Arcand, of the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, will talk about the process of creating the first data-based 3D model and print of an exploded star. At the end of Arcand's talk, she will be joined by Tom Sgouros, a researcher with and on virtual reality at the Brown University Center for Computation and Visualization. Arcand and Sgouros have worked together to develop software, using Occulus Rift technology, allowing observers virtual first-hand experience of a supernova remnant like never before.Original music by Mark C.

The SAGA Project: Satellite Galaxy Populations Around Milky Way-like Galaxies
The properties of the Milky Way's satellite galaxies provide critical clues to how galaxies form. However, the number of Milky Way satellites and their properties do not fully agree with well-established cosmological models. The SAGA (Satellites Around Galactic Analogs) survey is a long-term program to determine complete satellite luminosity functions around 100 Milky Way analogs down to Mr = -12. I will present early results from the SAGA survey. Surprisingly, the majority (26/27) of our satellites are star-forming, as compared to 2 of 5 star-forming Milky Way satellites in the same luminosity range. I will discuss how these results potentially change the physical interpretation of measurements based only on the Milky Way's satellites.
Raining Sunscreen? The Atmosphere of Kepler 13Ab
Kepler-13Ab is one of the hottest known planets, with a dayside temperature of nearly 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit and is located 1,730 light-years from Earth.It has an unusual atmosphere that appears to contain titanium oxide (like sunscreen). The science team observed the Kepler 13 system and found that the atmospheric temperature of the hot planet gets colder with altitude, different from some other planets. But titanium oxide would cause the upper atmosphere to heat up. So what is going on? Likely the material is carried around to the nighttime side of the planet, away from the blistering heat, where it cools and rains down to the surface. Because the planet is so large, the titanium oxide is trapped on the surface and does not get mixed back up into the atmosphere. The Hubble observations allow astronomers to detect this precipitation process (called a "cold trap"), for the first time.Join Tony Darnell and Carol Christian during Afternoon Astronomy Coffee on October 26, 2017 at 3PM Eastern (Daylight) Time as they discuss with Thomas Beatty and Jason Wright (Pennsylvania State University) as well as Nikku Madhusudhan (University of Cambridge) about this unusual exoplanet and how they deciphered the observations.Link to Paper:

Arianespace Flight VV11 / MOHAMMED VI – A satellite
On its 11th consecutive success since entering service in 2012, Arianespace’s light-lift Vega launcher today orbited the MOHAMMED VI – A satellite for the Kingdom of Morocco on a nighttime mission from the Spaceport in French Guiana.
Elizabeth Tasker, Japan Aerospace Exploration AgencyIn exploring our own solar system, astronomers have uncovered some weird worlds. However, these are nothing compared to the lands harboured by our neighbouring stars. Huge Jupiters snuggle so close to their star that their years last only as long as our days. Planets are resurrected around stars that have long been dead. Other worlds begin their nights with dual sunsets, like Tatooine in Star Wars, drown in global water oceans, as in Interstellar, or even have seas of tar. These worlds can be more extreme than anything in fiction and prompt us to ask if any could be called home.NOTE: There were some sound problems with the recording. The auditorium was upgraded during the week before this event, and a couple bugs were uncovered during this field test of the system. We apologize, and the staff is working to ensure these problems are solved for future events.Host: Dr. Frank SummersRecorded live on November 7, 2017 at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, MD USAFor more information: http://hubblesite.org/about_us/public-talks.shtml

Gas: A Prime Driver of Galaxy Evolution
Cornell UniversityGreat progress has been made over the past two decades in constraining the star formation history of the universe, but our understanding of how cosmic star formation is fueled by molecular gas at high redshift remains limited to specific, and potentially biased samples of galaxies. To overcome these limitations, we have carried out a large blind volume search for molecular gas in galaxies at redshifts 2-3 and 5-7 with the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA). This measurement of the "cold gas history of the universe" near the peak of cosmic star formation and in the first billion years of cosmic time provides important information on the fueling mechanisms that drive cosmic star formation. To probe the detailed physical properties of these processes, we augment this survey with in-depth, high-resolution studies of star-forming galaxies back to the earliest epochs with the Atacama Large sub/Millimeter Array (ALMA) and other facilities, from
"normal", low-metallicity galaxies all the way to the most intense, massive dusty starbursts. These studies fundamentally enhance our picture of early galaxy evolution by providing a better understanding of the stellar mass buildup, and they provide detailed constraints on the design of planned galaxy surveys in the early universe with the next generation Very Large Array (ngVLA).

The Dynamics of the Local Group: Challenges to Convention in the Era of Precision Astrometry
Bok Prize Lecture:Gurtina Besla
Univ. of Arizona
Abstract:Our understanding of the dynamics of our Local Group of galaxies has changed dramatically over the past few years owing to significant advancements in astrometry and our theoretical understanding of galaxy structure. I will provide an overview of key contributions by the Hubble Space Telescope to this evolving picture. In particular, I will highlight the impact of the HSTPROMO team’s proper motion measurements of key players in the Local Group, such as the most massive satellites of the Milky Way (the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds), the first direct proper motion measurement of M31 and an implied new orbital history for M33. These results have met with controversy, challenging preconceived notions of the orbital dynamics of key components of the Local Group. They also make concrete predictions and have profound implications for our analysis of upcoming high-precision astrometric data from e.g., Gaia, LSST and JWST.

"I’m a resident of Houston, Texas and in mid-August I had some minor surgery in my arm which left me pretty-much homebound for the following two weeks. Unfortunately during those two weeks, Hurricane Harvey decided to show up. However I had science on my side. Due to advances in climatology, meteorology, hydrology, and computer science I was able to stay up to date on the path of the storm, including receiving real time alerts for flooding, heavy rain, and even tornados. Thanks to the advances in telecommunications, I was able to stay in touch with the friend who was going to evacuate me, though thankfully it never came to that point. Thanks to the engineers and material scientists I was able to stay warm and dry in my apartment throughout the storm. Thanks to the advances in the sciences of food preparation and stabilization, I was able to stay fed throughout the storm and recovery without having to go to the grocery store repeatedly. Though Harvey was a disaster for Texas, without science it would have been a lot worse.
