I'd like to submit the artist's rendition for the discovery of a circumbinary planet (dubbed "PH1") in a four-star system by Planet Hunters. Planet Hunters is a citizen science project enlisting the general public to inspect the publicly released Kepler dataset for extrasolar planets. PH1 is the first confirmed planet for the Planet Hunters project and is the first planet to be found in a four-star system. The planet was discovered by Planet Hunters' volunteers Robert Gagliano and Kian Jek and followed-up and confirmed by a Yale-led team of astronomers.

Image
Image Credit: Haven Giguere/Yale

A family portrait of the PH1 planetary system: The newly discovered planet is depicted in this artist’s rendition transiting the larger of the two eclipsing stars it orbits. Off in the distance, well beyond the planet orbit, at ~1000 AU resides a second pair of stars bound to the planetary system. (Image by Haven Giguere/Yale)

A larger version >400K version can be found here.

The paper announcing the discovery has been submitted to Astronomical Journal and can be found in preprint form here.

We have also have a blog post on the Planet Hunters website announcing the discovery which can be found here

I'm project scientist for Planet Hunters and lead author of the paper. I have permission to post the image and submit it to APOD.

Cheers,

Hunter's Moon

Post by Antonio Costa » Mon Oct 29, 2012 8:32 am

http://www.flickr.com/photos/a_costa/8134216753/
La luna del cazador también conocida como luna sanguinea es la primera luna llena después de la luna de la cosecha, que es la luna llena más cercana al equinoccio otoñal. La
Luna del Cazador se llama así porque la luz de la luna es ideal para que los cazadores puedan tirar a las aves migratorias en el norte de Europa. El nombre también se dice que ha sido utilizado por los nativos americanos ya que los rastreadores podian seguir y matar a sus presas a la luz de la luna para conseguir alimentos en otoño y almacenarlos para el invierno. La Luna del Cazador y la Luna de las Cosechas no son más brillantes, más grandes o más amarillas que durante otras épocas del año, pero todas las lunas llenas tienen sus propias características especiales, basándose principalmente en su posición en la eclíptica en el cielo en la época del año que son visibles. Las lunas llenas de septiembre, octubre y noviembre, como se ve desde el hemisferio norte-que se corresponden con la luna llena de marzo, abril y mayo, según se ve desde el hemisferio sur, son bien conocidos en el folklore del cielo.

The sun had some great filaments yesterday. They went over more than 1/4th of the sun and continued over the edge as can be seen in this image.

Nice capture Thierry, the long exposure with moonlight
really brings out the landscape. Well done.

Just 5 x 1,000 second blue subs plus 5 x 200 second subs in each of red, green and blue, all at f/7 using a TEC 140 telescope plus an FLI ML16803 camera. Processing via PixInsight and Photoshop. More detail in this thread over at the Stargazer's Lounge.

Bob.

Gorgeous, Bob. The wisps/textures look like paint strokes.
