"Barkadahan sa Kalawakan" July 26, 2014

Posted on October 24, 2015 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (1)

* This is a backup post from the main page


The Philippine Astronomical Society, in collaboration with the Wild Bird Club of the Philippines (WBCP), conducted a birdwatching tour at UP Diliman campus last July 26 from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM to promote birdwatching as an outdoor activity for astronomy enthusiasts and guests during the rainy season when stargazing is impossible. The event was named "Barkadahan sa Kalawakan" to signify bonding in the wild environment.

 

The UP Diliman campus with its proximity, accessibility to public transportation, lush greenery, thick vegetation, and abundant trees in every nook and cranny of its 493-hectare area is home to about 130 wild bird species according to bird researches. Thus, UP Diliman was the natural choice for the event.




The scare was the weather because it had been raining heavily days before the tour due to the low-pressure areas somewhere in the south. But luckily, the sun shone the day before and on July 26 when the tour was held. The weather was just perfect - no heat, no rain.

 

The participants assembled at Palma Hall at 6:30 AM for the distribution of the WBCP binoculars and for the birdwatching orientation. Seven WBCP guides came: WBCP President Gina Mapua, Dr. Paul Guerrero, Eire Rivera, Brian Ellis, Trinket Constantino, John Javier, and Tommy Tan. The tour started at exactly 7 AM.

 

A lot of wild birds were sighted along the Beta Way, Gonzales Hall, and the area behind the Palma Hall. Among the lifers sighted were the pied fantail, Eurasian tree sparrow, yellow-vented bulbul, zebra dove, black-naped oriole, Philippine pygmy woodpecker, colasisi, little egret, collared kingfisher, brown shrike, pokpok, etc.

 

The group was cautioned not to make noise and to talk in whispers as much as possible to avoid scaring away the birds, but that was of no use when the tour began. Everyone exclaimed at the sight of every bird; and the guides were patient enough to show them where they were and to describe what branch they can be seen at, while rattling off how they got their common names, their scientific names, where and when they are usually found, etc.

 

The participants enjoyed the tour so much that they want to do birdwatching on their own and have requested for another group birding event in the future. Here is one feedback from one participant:

"I finally got to go bird watching in UP Diliman. Had to leave early though to take care of work-related chore.I met some really wonderful folks who patiently pointed out the birds to us, let us peep through their scopes and shared wonderful information about the birds.

 

Would love to do this again. Have to get my own binocs and check out the variety of birds that we have in our Cabanatuan backyard. Joy Garcia Valenton"

 

Thank you very much to all those who joined and to our guides from the Wild Bird Club of the Philippines. Our special thanks to WBCP President Gina Mapua who facilitated the tour for the Philippine Astronomical Society from beginning to end and to Dr. Paul Guerrero who traveled six hours from Baler, Aurora to be our lead guide for the event.

Meteoric feedback from PAS guests who attended our recent Camelopardalid observation at Manila Observatory and the stargazing at Clark, Pampanga.

 

1. From Rommel Alindao (Science teacher of a Islamic School in Dasmarias, Cavite)

 

" Thank you. I had an unforgettable learning experience with the wonderful people of PAS, i feel proud and its an honor to b with your group. im a hskul science teacher."

 

2. Last night was my first time to see very closely the stars in the sky. It was an amazing experience to view what is in the sky at night. Very noticing is the Planet Saturn which i clearly viewed even its ring. Me and my partner rheana enjoyed so much the presentation by PAS through Cris/Hernan and Coleman Phils. Surely on their next event we will be joining them again... Thank you so much.

3. A write-up from Jan Marvin Goh of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Valenzuela -

 

Camelopardalid

 

Jan Marvin Goh

 

If a single shooting star can grant a single wish, how many more could a meteor shower possibly would?

 

It was May 23rd back then when PASers, Professors, lovers of spectacle, and we PLVians, squealed our rants of happiness upon the warmest welcome given by Ma’am. Victoria and Sir Ian as we joined our ways onto the roof terrace of Manila Observatory. Who would have known what tonight’s sky reserved for us? Our curiously-mastering-the-science-of-the-stars hearts were filled with excitement, joy, and mystery (perhaps) upon waiting for the “Cosmic Debris” to dance along the night sky. Mats were stretched. Foods were opened; Telescopes were set by Sir Josuel, PAS President, Sir Reginald, and others. Everybody were settled listening to the lectures of Prof. Ed. Some challenged themselves not to fall into their naturally installed mortal feature of sleeping. Others enjoyed clicking buttons on their high-end DSLRs. Although most of us were losing hope of not seeing the grandeur of the spectacle that was expected, there was one hurrying line drawn into the heaven. The line’s cameo appearance gave hope to our weary eyes. Expecting there could be more; we opened our eyes a lot wider and drank coffee as to avoid any chances of another line making fun of us. If that line was lightning, we would not bother going into the event, but Alas! These things were not. Moreover, lectures about the stories and science of the constellations, asterisms, and other stuffs that I could not barely understand because of the jargons used were being clarified to us. The clarifications done were quite very much outstanding that even someone who simply loves the night sky will not look and feel like a caveman (by standards).

 

We knew how to measure time, find directions, locate the planets, use laser pointers as laser swords, temporarily blind others by flashing light into their eyes, and laugh our hearts with colleagues in just a single warm, bright night. Patience, patience, and patience were exercised just like waiting for your special someone on a candle-lit, restaurant like date. Horror stories, laughs, inquiries, food-trips, and being awake led us in mastering the art of being “Patient.”

 

Time passed slowly. Stars moved degree by degree, but still there are no signs of you-know-what. The universe knew when to annoy us sometimes; I mean most of the times. For some people who actually wished they could gaze upon a single shooting star on the entirety of their life, a meteor shower could have been better, but sadly, as the sun of May 24th slowly conquered the 23rd’s heaven, only the birds slashed their way on the horizon.

They say when we look up and let our eyes be one with the stars; we are looking at our past. I said no, for this time I am looking directly at the wonder of 3 awe-inspiring meteors, as bright as the planet Jupiter. Although these meteors are not showers, just droplets, my heart is filled with joy as I write this essay, and yes! It is May 25 on our rooftop. Still, our wishes are granted. Cheers!

Camelopardalids is a new meteor shower you should see on May 23 to 24

Posted on October 24, 2015 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)

* This is a backup post from the main page


By PASer Ces Verzosa, Tech Times | May 17, 2014




Joining the roster of the most-awaited meteor showers on Earth is the Camelopardalid meteor shower radiating from the constellation of Camelopardalis, the 18th largest constellation in the night sky.

 

When it rains it pours. Such rings true with the month of May as a unique cosmic spectacle is anticipated to close the month with a bang.

 

First spotted by a Dutch astronomer named Petrus Plancius and later documented by German astronomer Jakob Bartsch in the 1960s, the Camelopardalis constellation depicts an image of a giraffe that resembles a camel and a leopard, hence its name.

 

Seen clearly in the northern hemisphere, Camelopardalis is a circumpolar constellation, which means that unlike any popular constellations that go from east to west, this one remains in the night sky, revolving only around the Polaris or the North Star.

 

This could make the new meteor shower a sight worth the wait for the perennial onlookers and curious individuals alike since it would be the first time a never-heard meteor shower will showcase its radiance to Earth. As our planet plows through the stream of small rocks Comet 209P/LINEAR had left behind, they are expected to light up the night sky with strokes of bright beams with much frequency.

 

As per astronomers, it could be a meteor storm festooning the evening with as much as 1,000 meteors every hour. Some experts predicted it could be a copious number of fireballs gracing the night sky. Perhaps it will just be an ordinary night for the people on Earth, and the scientists could only find out.

 

Astronomy magazine's senior editor Rich Talcott is positive that the Camelopardalid will give an exceptional view.

 

"Over the past 15 or 20 years, astronomers have done a very good job at figuring out, OK, here's where the debris streams will lie. I'm thinking the odds are pretty good we'll get something nice May 24," Talcott said.

 

On the late evening of May 23 until the early hours of May 24, the moon would be in its waning phase and even if it rises at 3:41 in the morning, it would not be disrupting the view.

 

"They could start as soon as it gets dark the night of the 23rd," Talcott added. "I'm going to go out and check every hour. We don't know because this is the first time, and I don't want to miss it."

 

Meteor showers usually take their name after the constellation they would be radiating from.

 

Discovered in 2004, Comet 209P/LINEAR was spotted by Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research or LINEAR with its 39-inch reflector. This May, it came closest to the Sun and now its debris is expected to ignite the Earth's night sky.

 

 

FROM EDMUND ROSALES (PAS Board Director Emeritus)

 

 

NASA scientists from JPL announced a newly discovered meteor debris left by Comet 209P/Linear that could produce a meteor shower to a storm coming from the constellation Camelopardis or Giraffe this coming May 23 and 24.

 

A meteor shower produces several to hundreds of meteors per hour while a meteor storm produces thousands of meteors. So far, the only meteor shower that produces a storm is the Leonids ( Nov. 17-18) every 33 years. The last time it happened was last 2001 were I was able to count 1,786 meteors using my tally counter that night. The next it is expected to happen will be on 2034.

 

No need to wait for the 2034 Leonids if you want to witness a meteor storm. Even if there is a waning crescent moon, PAS will conduct an overnight observation on both nights at the observation deck of the Manila Observatory, Ateneo de Manila.

 

Clear skies be with us al!
