In this video I will show you how you can detect exoplanets with the cheapest possible equipment. The exoplanet I'm going to detect is called HD 189733 b. Its star has an apparent magnitude of 7.7 and the exoplanet produces a drop of 2.8% during almost 2 hours.
In this video I show how you can help the SETI Institute find extraterrestrial intelligence from home.
In this video I show how you can find potentially habitable exoplanets with a videogame, for free, and without the need of a telescope:

Here is our list of the top 10 strangest planets in the universe. From fiery volcanic exoplanets to planets a whopping 28,000 light years from Earth, there are some pretty strange planets in space.
Were the moon landings faked? Was it all an elaborate hoax to beat the soviets in the space race? Was America lacking the technical ability to make it to the moon? What do you think?
O Cometa Halley é um cometa que passa nas regiões do Sistema Solar próximas da Terra a cada 75 anos. Ele foi o primeiro corpo celeste a ser reconhecido como periódico e foi descoberto pelo astrônomo e matemático Edmond Halley em 1696.
I recently witnessed what certainly looked like three simultaneous Iridium flares very near to one another. Is that possible -- has anyone ever heard of three at a time?
All ideas are welcome!

Any beginners can post questions and we will be happy to answer.
I really, really, love astronomy. When I was ten, I went to a restaurant and saw a huge wall mural of the Andromeda Galaxy. At my house, we had a tiny refractor telescope. I knew this wasn't enough, so I bought (with help) an 8 inch Dobsonian reflector. I looked up one time to try to find something to look at and saw something fuzzy- the Orion Nebula. This is when I really got into using my telescope. I still have my Dobsonian, but I am hoping to get a new telescope or an azimuth mount for...
Post any problems or questions you have with your telescope.
