An international team of astronomers have used ground-based telescopes, including the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (ESO’s VLT), to track Neptune’s atmospheric temperatures over a 17-year period. They found a surprising drop in Neptune’s global temperatures followed by a dramatic warming at its south pole. This research was presented in the paper “Sub-Seasonal Variation [...]
JIV-ERIC is now running its own Virtual Observatory (VO) service that provides access to all the public data in the European VLBI Network (EVN) archive hosted by JIVE. This VO service provides a searchable catalog of all EVN observations that were correlated at JIVE and a few correlated at the other EVN correlator at Max [...]
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope detected the light of a star that existed within the first billion years after the universe’s birth in the big bang – the farthest individual star ever seen to date. The newly detected star is so far away that its light has taken 12.9 billion years to reach Earth, appearing to [...]
