CFHT CLOUD CAM TIME LAPSE SUNSET TO SUNRISE FEBRUARY 10-11, 2012
February 10, 2012
The Little Dipper twirls around the northern sky every night of the year. Tonight, the bowl dangles below the handle at nightfall, and stands above the handle at first light.
In the western sky during twilight and early evening, bright Jupiter and brighter Venus are now 30° apart and closing. Venus is the lower one. Watch the gap between them narrow by 1° per day as they approach their March 13th conjunction.

On February 11, 2012, Houston was found dead in her guest room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, in Beverly Hills, California, of causes not immediately known. News of her death, the day before the 2012 Grammy Awards, dominated American and international media, especially cable news.

Two bright companions snuggle close to the gibbous Moon late tonight. As they climb into good view around midnight, the star Spica is close to the lower left of the Moon, with the planet Saturn farther to the lower left of Spica. All three will be high in the sky at first light. • Algol in Perseus, the prototype eclipsing binary star, is at its minimum brightness (magnitude 3.4 instead of its usual 2.1) for a couple hours centered on 10:50 p.m. EST (7:50 p.m. PST).
By midnight tonight, the waning Moon is up in the southeast with Spica to its lower left and Saturn farther to the lower left. Mars blazes high to their upper right by then. Arcturus, tinted less deeply, shines to their upper left. To the right of the Moon is the constellation Corvus.

By the time dawn begins to brighten, Saturn, Spica, and the waning Moon passing them are high in the southwest. By dawn Sunday morning they've all moved over to the southwest and twisted around, as shown at right.
AS YOU RECALL:
ON FEBRUARY 8, 2012 NASA TELLS US THAT NGC 6752. Some 13,000 light-years away toward the southern constellation Pavo, the globular star cluster roams the halo of our Milky Way galaxy. Over 10 billion years old, NGC 6752 holds over 100 thousand stars in a sphere about 100 light-years in diameter, but the Hubble image frame spans the central 10 or so light-years and resolves stars near the dense cluster core. In fact the frame includes some of the cluster's blue straggler stars, stars which appear to be too young and massive to exist in a cluster whose stars are all expected to be at least twice as old as the Sun. Explorations of the NGC 6752 have also indicated that a remarkable fraction of the stars near the cluster's core, are multiple star systems, supporting arguments that star mergers and collisions in the dense stellar environment can create the cluster's blue straggler stars.
ON FEBRUARY 8, 2012 -- NASA explained that a mere 12.5 million light-years from Earth, irregular dwarf galaxy NGC 4449 lies within the confines of Canes Venatici, the constellation of the Hunting Dogs. About the size of our Milky Way's satellite galaxy the Large Magellanic Cloud, NGC 4449 is undergoing an intense episode of star formation, evidenced by its wealth of young blue star clusters, pinkish star forming regions, and obscuring dust clouds in this deep color portrait. It also holds the distinction of being the first dwarf galaxy with an identified tidal star stream, faintly seen at the lower right. The star stream represents the remains of a still smaller infalling satellite galaxy, disrupted by gravitational forces and destined to merge with NGC 4449. With relatively few stars, small galaxies are thought to possess extensive dark matter halos. But since dark matter interacts gravitationally, these observations offer a chance to examine the significant role of dark matter in galactic merger events.
