The significance of the zodiac stems from the fact that the ecliptic -- the narrow path on the sky that the Sun, Moon, and planets appear to follow -- runs directly through these star groupings. We publish prepublications to facilitate timely access to the committee's findings. Free admission, no booking required, free and ample parking in the evenings.

"Sirius is most probably the star worshipped by the ancient inhabitants of Metsamor," Parsamian explains. "Between 2800-2600 BCE Sirius could have been observed from Metsamor in the rising rays of the sun.

Powerful gamma rays can, however be detected by the large air showers they produce, and the study of cosmic rays can also be regarded as a branch of astronomy. Most galaxies are organized into distinct shapes that allow for classification schemes. The queue of vehicles stretched back for at least four kilometres well into the early hours as enthusiasts tried to reach the venue to witness the Camelopardalids, a meteor shower named after the giraffe constellation. This theory has been abandoned by most astronomers in favor of the big bang theory.

Both of these fields represent an overlap of the disciplines of astronomy and chemistry. Then, in June, Caltech hosted the first international conference on “astroinformatics.” Astronomers are used to working at the limits of human imagination, but even they have a hard time envisioning the kinds of insights they will be able to pull out of the bounteous new databases. “We’ve built the roads,” Djorgovski says. “Now we need some Ferraris to drive on them.” In 2007, Oxford doctoral candidate Kevin Schawinski, exhausted from classifying 50,000 galaxies in one week, decided to solicit help from the robust community of amateur astronomers, using a technique known as crowdsourcing.
