DIARY OF AN ASTRONOMUS (CONSTELLATION OF AURIGA)๐Ÿช๐ŸŒŒ

in StemSocial โ€ข 2 months ago (edited)
Hello, today I took advantage of the fact that the sky was very clean to study a new constellation, in this case we will explain about the constellation of Auriga, this set of stars are very easy to recognize in the sky and it is that it has a particularity, there is a star that stands out among all for emitting a very intense brightness and different from the rest of the stars that make up the constellation! For this small study, my short-range telescope and my canon camera with the 55mm lens are enough, I hope we learn something together!๐Ÿช๐ŸŒŒ

Hola, hoy aproveche que el cielo estaba muy limpio para estudiar una nueva constelacion, en este caso explicaremos sobre la constelacion de Auriga, este conjunto de estrellas son muy facil de reconocer en el cielo y es que tiene una particularidad, hay una estrella que sobresale entre todas por emitir un brillo muy intenso y diferente al resto de las estrellas que conforman la constelacion! para este pequeรฑo estudio basto mi telescopio de corto alcance y mi camara canon con la lente 55mm, espero aprendamos algo juntos!๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“

One of the characteristics that stand out when we look for information about Auriga is that its name in Latin means: (the coachman), this simple and beautiful constellation is located in the northern hemisphere very close to the star Polaris, it is very close to the orion and has a hexagonal shape so it is easy to differentiate it, it is also very close to the constellation of Taurus!๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป
Una de las caracteristicas que resaltan cuando buscamos informacion sobre Auriga es que su nombre en latin significa: (el cochero), esta simple y hermosa constelacion se ubica en el hemisferio norte muy cerca de la estrella Polaris, esta muy cerca del orion y tiene una forma exagonal por eso es facil de diferenciarla, tambien esta muy cerca de la constelacion de Taurus!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Since the mandate of the Greeks, the constellation of Auriga had already been discovered, the first time it was mentioned was in the writing of Ptolemy, his treatise already described 48 constellations and the coachman was already part of this list, therefore it is a very old constellation ! we can locate it in the first quadrant of the northern hemisphere, it covers a large area: a total of 657 square degrees! Due to this location, it is usually only seen in degrees above 34 degrees SOUTH, when we study Auriga immediately the bibliographic references describe Capella, since it is its brightest star! and incredibly it is the sixth that emits more light in the entire night sky!๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ƒ
Desde el mandato de los Griegos ya se habia descubierto la constelacion de Auriga, la primera vez que se menciono fue en el escrito de Ptolomeo su tratado ya describia 48 constelaciones y el cochero ya formaba parte de esta lista, por tanto es una constelacion muy antigua! podemos ubicarla en el primer cuadrante del hemisferio norte, abarca una gran superficie: un total de 657 grados cuadrados! por esta ubicacion solo suele verse en grados superiores de 34 grados SUR, cuando estudiamos Auriga inmediatamente las referencias bibliograficas nos describen a Capella, ya que es su estrella mas brillante! e increiblemente es la sexta que mas luz emite en todo el cielo nocturno!๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ

To locate Auriga in the sky use the program (Sky map), experts do not recommend using this type of application because they say they are very inaccurate, although they transmit in real time, I particularly see it very interesting and it has been found to locate constellations, planets is more difficult but without a doubt it is a very effective tool for the study of astronomy! and it's free to download!๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜‹
Para ubicar Auriga en el cielo utilice el programa (Sky map), los expertos no recomiendan utilizar este tipo de aplicaciones porque dicen que son muy inexactas, aunque transmiten en tiempo real, yo particularmente la veo muy interesante y me ha resultado para ubicar constelaciones, planetas es mas dificil pero sin duda es una herramienta muy eficaz para el estudio de la astronomia! y es gratis para descargarla!๐Ÿ”ญ๐Ÿ”ญ

PHOTOGRAPHING AURIGA๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“/ FOTOGRAFIANDO AURIGA๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒŒ

As you can see in the photo is the hexagon that is mentioned in the characteristics, in the area where Auriga is located there are some celestial objects that are of interest to astronomy such are the cases: Messier: 36,37,38 in addition to seeing the nebula of the flaming star, this constellation was always linked in Greek mythology and is described in many historical books, the two stars that are brightest in the constellation of Auriga are: Capella and Menkalinan.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ
Como puedes observar en la foto es el exagono que se menciona en las caracteristicas, en el area donde se ubica Auriga hay algunos objetos celestiales que son de interes para astronomia tal son los casos: "Messier: 36,37,38 ademas de ver la nebulosa de la estrella llameante" , esta constelacion siempre estuvo ligada en la mitologia griega y es descrita en muchos libros historicos, las dos estrellas que son mas brillantes de la constelacion de Auriga son: Capella y Menkalinan.๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ

ALFA AURIGAE๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“/ CAPELLA๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒŒ

IMG_5092.JPG

So that you can better identify capella or alpha aurigae, I used my long-range laser and as you can see in the sky I am pointing to Capella and as you can also notice it is the brightest in that space! The characteristic of Capella is that it has a magnitude of 0.08 and that is why it becomes the sixth brightest star, the Latin name of capella is: little goat, and for the star to become more interesting it is still not a simple star is 4 stars that make up Capella, 2 are yellow giants and 2 are red dwarfs!๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ
Para que puedas identificar mejor capella o alfa aurigae, e utilizado mi laser de largo alcance y como puedes ver en el cielo te estoy seรฑalando Capella y como tambien puedes notar es la mas brillante en ese espacio! la caracteristica de Capella es que tiene una "magnitud de 0.08" y es por eso que se convierte en la sexta estrella mas brillante, el nombre en latin de capella es: pequeรฑa cabra, y para que la estrella se torne mas interesante aun es que no es una estrella simple son "4 estrellas que conforman Capella, 2 son gigantes amarillas y 2 son enanas rojas!" ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

To see the star with more magnification I use a lower lens on the telescope (8mm), and as you can see the cappella light is red and looks different from the rest of the stars that surround it, this impressive star is about 42 years old. light of our solar system!๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”
Para ver la estrella con mas aumento utilizo una lente mas baja en el telescopio (8mm), y como puedes ver la luz de capella es roja y se ve diferente al resto de estrellas que la rodean, este impresionante estrella se encuentra a unos "42 aรฑos luz" de nuestro sistema solar! ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ

This star corresponds to the second brightest of Auriga, it is also known by the name of Menkalinan or in its Latin translation: (coachman's shoulder), it is a binary binary star made up of two white sub-giants, it has a magnitude of 1.9 and the distance to our solar system is 81 light years! As you can see the difference in color, it looks more white-red, unlike alfa aurigae.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
Esta estrella corresponde a la segunda mas brillante de Auriga, se le conoce tambien con el nombre de Menkalinan o en su traduccion en latin: (hombro del cochero), es una estrella binaria osea conformada por "dos subgigantes blancas, presenta una magnitud de 1.9" y la distancia con nuestro sistema solar es de "81 aรฑos luz!" como puedes ver la diferenciad e coloracion esta parece mas blanco-rojo a diferencia de alfa aurigae๐Ÿค๐Ÿ’–
