ENCONTRAMOS UN NUEVO ASTEROIDE

Buenas noticias astronómicas: alumnos/as del IES Daute Los Silos son los primeros en observar un posible asteroide. Ya tenemos otro descubrimiento provisional realizado en el curso 2018-19.

Ahora a esperar nuevos datos de seguimiento para su confirmación. Y dentro de unos años podrán ponerle nombre al asteroide.

Enhorabuena Airam, Bruno y Valeria actualmente en 1ºBACH, pero que realizaron su detección el curso pasado como actividad de FYQ 4ºESO.

Aquí reproduzco la comunicación recibida desde el IASC:

Asunto: April-May 2019 Provisional Discovery – IASC

Greetings from the International Astronomical Search Collaboration

Provisional Discoveries

Congratulations to your citizen scientists on their Provisional discovery from the April-May 2019 campaign!

A preliminary discovery is the first, original observation of new asteroid. The asteroid must be observed a second time within the next 7-10 days. If it is, then the discovery is changed to provisional status by the Minor Planet Center (MPC). Asteroid discoveries with provisional status are maintained in the MPC database for many years, until there have been a sufficient number of observations to fully determine the orbit. That process typically takes 6-10 years, at which point the asteroid is numbered and cataloged by the International Astronomical Union. Numbered asteroids can be named by their citizen scientist discoverers.

Happy Hunting!!
