New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) will make available live color photos illustrating the rare Transit of Mercury. Big Bear Solar Observatory, Big Bear, Calif., managed and operated by NJIT, will begin capturing these images at 2 p.m. E.S.T. using its 6 inch (15 centimeter) Singer Full-Disk Telescope. The telescope will use a special filter to look at chromosphere, a layer in the solar atmosphere about a thousand miles above the sun's visible surface. >>
Astrophysicist Dale Gary, PhD, professor and chair of the department of physics at NJIT, returned yesterday from the International Astronomical Union's general assembly in Prague. Gary is available to discuss the ramifications of the change in Pluto's status. >>

How the study of Earthshine continues to elucidate climate variables and how the use of Earthshine data may help to search for advanced life on distant planets, will be the foci of an upcoming panel discussion in Baltimore led by solar physicist Philip R. Goode, PhD, and a panel of researchers. Goode, distinguished professor at NJIT and director of Big Bear Solar Observatory, Calif., leads the talk on May 23 at 10 a.m. during the 2006 joint assembly of six geophysical societies. >>
Less sunlight reaching the Earth's surface has not translated into cooler temperatures, according to a team of solar physicists at NJIT. The scientists have observed that the amount of light reflected by Earth has increased since 2000. “Our findings have significant implications for the study of climate change,” said Philip R. Goode, PhD, principal investigator and distinguished professor of physics at NJIT. >>
