Not many people know this but I find the story of Mrs. Jyothi Reddy, a very inspirational story, much more than "The Persuit of Happyness". Sometime in the s, a young woman labourer was toiling in the fields under a harsh, southern sun for. The classes used to categorize stars (O, B, A, F, G, K, M) are in a bizarre order for historical reasons. Stars were labeled based on the spectral lines that were visible, then the categories were put.

To cite one example, you could recall the spectral classifications of stars used by astronomers by remembering the mnemonic "Ottawa boasts a fine gorilla, knowing many new stars." The first letters of each word in the sentence correspond to the classifications O, B, A, F, . Electromagnetic Radiation. All light is Electromagnetic Radiation, a self-propagating Electromagnetic disturbance that moves at the speed of light: c = , km/sec ~ x10 5 km/s This is about , miles per second. Note that the speed of light is the .

Introduction, the first letter (O, B, A, F, G, K, M) corresponds to the spectral type and the number is the subtype. The Roman numeral V simply indicates that these are main-sequence stars, a concept that we will discuss later in the lab. Now load a star on which to practice Size: KB. O B A F G K M. For decades, astronomy students have been taught a mnemonic to remember this order: O Be A Fine Girl (or Guy), exposed again, shifted, etc., sometimes putting 5 or 6 exposures of the sky on one plate. Then, to get additional use out of the plate, it would be turned degrees and exposed 5 - 6 more times in the reverse.

O-B-A-F-G- etc! by Robert Edward Duncan Download PDF EPUB FB2

Stars are classified according to temperature, with type O stars being the hottest, then B, A, F, G, K, M. The Sun is a type G star. O-B-A-F-G is a proto-immersive audio-theatre work by Ronald Duncan from It examines the tensions between scientific and spiritual beliefs about the ‘birth’ of matter and our relationship with the Earth.

This re-imagining explores the possibilities O-B-A-F-G- etc! book by current digital technologies to expand the spaces in which the piece is performed. This version of O-B-A-F-G was first.

A note on the spectral atlas and spectral classification This spectral atlas contains a sample of the standard spectral type stars, peculiar stars, O-B-A-F-G- etc!

book stars, and some special stars. The atlas is divided into pages for each spectral type, with each page containing a short description of the stellar type, characteristic spectral features.

The letters run (from hottest to coolest) O B A F G K M L T. The numbers represent points in between the letters. For example, a G2 star is between G and K, but closer to G (the numbers run from 0.

The Yerkes spectral classification, also called the MKK system from the authors' initials, is a system of stellar spectral classification introduced in by William Wilson Morgan, Philip C. Keenan, and Edith Kellman from Yerkes Observatory.

This two-dimensional (temperature and luminosity) classification scheme is based on spectral lines sensitive to stellar temperature and surface gravity. Yerkes luminosity class IV. The term subgiant was first used in for class G and early K stars with absolute magnitudes between + and +4. These were noted as being part of a continuum of stars between obvious main-sequence stars such as the Sun and obvious giant stars such as Aldebaran, although less numerous than either the main sequence or the giant stars.

Every student in introductory astronomy learns the mnemonic "Oh Be a Fine Girl/Guy, Kiss Me", which is a way to remember the spectral classification of stars. Here's how it works: the color of a star is determined by its temperature, as I outlined previously.

Oh: O class stars are the hottest, with peak temperatures in. LECTURE READING §§ but skip the Magnitude Scale in § Beware of excessive detail in the book.

PRACTICE § Review:13, 14 § True/false, Multiple Choice, etc: 1, 3, 4, 7, 10, 11, 14 § Problems: 3, 4, Thus, the spectral sequence includes B8, B9, A0, A1, etc. A traditional mnemonic for the sequence is O h, B e, A F ine G irl/Guy, K iss M e.

Although based on the absorption lines, spectral type tells you about the surface temperature of the star. This book provides a general overview and discussion of astronomical objects, including the life cycle of stars. For students in middle school or above.

Heat is indicated by the letters O, B, A, F, G, K and M, with O being the hottest and M the coolest. (Mnemonics are used to remember the list such as "Oh Be A Fine Girl Kiss Me").

Interestingly, this seemingly random classification of letters has to do with the fact that originally stars were given a letter based on the amount of hydrogen that. ASTRONOMY. ASTRONOMY. The movement of the stars and planets has fascinated humans for thousands of years.

For the vast majority of ancient astronomers, the stars seemed to be equally distant from Earth in what was an Earth-centered (or "geocentric") cosmos.

The ancient Greeks observed that the stars revolved westward around the north celestial pole every twenty-three hours and fifty-six. Lecture 9: Stellar Spectra Readings: Readings: Chap sections &l O B A F G K M. Later work by Cannon and others added the classes R, N, and S which are no longer in use today.

Harvard graduate student in the s. Inher dissertation, published as the book Stellar Atmospheres was the breakthrough work in. This dependence of output on mass is a highly sensitive one, so that the latter covers a much smaller range than the former. These stars form a well-defined series, from the largest and brightest to the smallest and dimmest, which is called the main sequence.

For historical reasons, spectrographers label the types O, B, A, F, G, K, M. Classes of Stars. Class O stars are very hot, bright, and look bluish. The class O star is very rare. Only about % of main-sequence stars are O stars. These are also some of the brightest. Astronomers have reported the discovery of a star that passed within the outer reaches of our Solar System j years ago, when early humans were beginning to.

For instance, the hottest stars in class A are A0, and then A1, A2, etc all the way to A9, the coolest A type star. This list subsequently shows the main star types using the Morgan–Keenan system. It also provides some quick facts about each type of star, as well as a. The Question.

I have a troop of Girls Scout ages 7, 8, 9, years old. In our Girl Scout book the girl have to learn what make the stars appear to be brighter or bigger than others, about the different colors that appear to the star. My husband knows some things about the stars and he is my co-leader but he doesn't know how to tell little girls about the stars without them walking way not.
