National Optical Astronomy Observatory
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Redirected from National Optical Astronomy Observatories Jump to: navigation search The National Optical Astronomy Observatory NOAO ) is the United States national observatory for ground based nighttime ultraviolet optical infrared (OUVIR) astronomy . The National Science Foundation (NSF) funds NOAO to provide forefront astronomical research facilities for US astronomers. However, professional astronomers from any country in the world may apply to use the telescopes operated by NOAO under the NSF's "open skies" policy. Astronomers submit proposals for peer review to gain access to the telescopes which are scheduled every night of the year for observations (with the exception of Christmas and New Year's Eve). The combination of truly open access and the merit based science proposal process makes NOAO unique in the world. The NOAO headquarters are located in Tucson, Arizona and are co-located with the headquarters of the National Solar Observatory . The NOAO is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA), under a cooperative agreement with the NSF.

NATIONAL OPTICAL ASTRONOMY OBSERVATORIES TUCSON AZ We report sensitive Spitzer IRS spectroscopy in the region of TW Hya, a nearby T Tauri star. The unusual spectral energy distribution of the source, that of a transition object, indicates that the circumstellar disk in the system has experienced significant evolution, possibly as a result of planet formation. The spectrum we measure is strikingly different from that of other classical T Tauri stars reported in the literature, displaying no ... Quantifying Stellar Mass Loss with High Angular Resolution Imaging 19 Feb 2009 9 pages Authors: Stephen Ridgeway Jason Aufdenberg Michelle Creech-Eakman Nicholas Elias ... NATIONAL OPTICAL ASTRONOMY OBSERVATORIES TUCSON AZ Mass is constantly being recycled in the universe. One of the most powerful recycling paths is via stellar mass-loss. All stars exhibit mass loss with rates ranging from approximately 10(-14) to 10(-4) solar mass yr(-1), depending on spectral type, luminosity class, rotation rate, companion proximity, and evolutionary stage. The first generation of stars consisted mostly of hydrogen and helium. These shed material - via massive winds, planetary nebulae and supernova ...

New Planet over Kitt Peak
This composite image taken at Kitt Peak National Observatory outlines the Kepler satellite field of view, and within it, a circle marks the location of the faintest Kepler Mission host star yet, a G8 dwarf star harboring a 1.12 Jupiter-size exoplanet in a 3.9 day orbit. (reported by Howell et al in the Astrophysical Journal ) Ground-based confirmation of this planet involved three different telescopes on Kitt Peak: the 2.1-meter, the 4-meter and the WIYN telescope. About the picture:
The sky was photographed using a diffraction grating (Glaspey): spectra are visible on either side of the bright stars, the telescopes were imaged separately (Marenfeld) and later combined with the sky image. Previous home page images Buckyballs Discovered in Another Galaxy

NOAO Research Experiences for Undergraduates
The National Optical Astronomy Observatories (NOAO) offers a limited number of Summer Research Assistant positions to qualified undergraduate students each year at three NOAO divisions: Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO), Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO), and the National Solar Observatory (NSO). Undergraduate students are participants in the NOAO Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Site Program in astronomy, funded by the National Science Foundation . Participation is restricted to citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Positions at both KPNO and NSO are full-time for 10 to 12 weeks between May and September with an application deadline in January for summer program appointments. The positions at CTIO are for 10 weeks between January and March with an application deadline in September for winter program appointments. Please check the appropriate sites (linked below) for actual application deadline dates.
Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory
CTIO is the national center for astronomy for the United States in the southern hemisphere. Observatory headquarters are located in La Serena, Chile, and observing facilities are located on Cerro Tololo, about 60 miles northeast of La Serena, on the western slope of the Andes. Students will work on specific research projects in close collaboration with members of the scientific staff in areas that include stellar structure and evolution, star clusters, supernovae and supernovae remnants, and the structure and evolution of normal galaxies and cosmology. The program emphasizes observational techniques and provides opportunity for direct observational experience using CTIO facilities. Additional information and application materials are available on the Web at

Examples of small observatories that individual amateur astronomers have built for personal use. I started this list when doing research before building my own observatory . I got a lot of good ideas by looking at what others had done. Perhaps you will, too :-)
Building a small observatory is not all that hard. A simple roll-off roof design can be built in a few days with simple tools and materials easily available in your local building supply store. A dome is much more complicated but still can be done with more careful planning. Or you can buy a kit. Note: New entries are marked with an asterisk

Socorro, New Mexico, is the home of NRAO operations in New Mexico. Located on the campus of New Mexico Tech , the Array Operations Center houses scientific, engineering, technical, computer and support staff for both the Very Large Array and the Very Long Baseline Array. It includes the control center and correlator for VLBA observations and provides space for the Atacama Large Millimeter Array project. The Very Large Array (VLA) , one of the world's premier astronomical radio observatories, consists of 27 radio antennas in a Y-shaped configuration on the Plains of San Agustin 80 km (50 miles) miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. Each antenna is 25 meters (82 feet) in diameter. The data from the antennas is combined electronically to give the resolution of an antenna 36km (22 miles) across, with the sensitivity of a dish 130 meters (426.5 feet) in diameter.

The Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory
Radio Astronomy at Cambridge
Radio astronomy is the study of celestial objects by means of the natural radio waves they emit. It tells us about the Solar System, our own Galaxy (the Milky Way), radio galaxies, quasars and cosmology. The signals emitted by radio sources can be received from the most distant parts of the Universe, though they are very weak when they reach us. Some of the problems are fundamental, like star formation, the energy sources of pulsars, quasars and radio galaxies, and the evolution of the Universe. They cannot be answered in terrestrial laboratories. Other problems are more technical like the design of highly sensitive receivers and computer software for telescope control and image analysis. These techniques are widely applicable outside astronomy. Radio astronomy is thus important both as pure research and as a training for scientists. Warning!
