Dearborn Observatory Public Viewing

August 18, 2017, 9:00 PM - 11:00 PM

The Dearborn Observatory is open for public viewing every Friday night from 9 to 11 pm during the spring and summer months (Apr-Sept). The sessions are free and open to all. Reservations are required for the first hour but walk-ins are welcome in the second hour. All visitors should note that the dome is neither heated nor air-conditioned so please dress appropriately. Friday evening sessions are held "rain or shine." Unfortunately, the Dearborn is NOT ADA-accessible. Several staircases must be climbed in order to reach the telescope.

Giant explosions in dwarf hosts : “GREAT” survey of superluminous supernovae

A new class of supernovae, superluminous supernovae, has been discovered in the past few years. They are 100 times brighter (with absolute mag ~ -21) than normal core-collapse supernovae. This means that the standard paradigm of iron-core collapse cannot account for the origin of superluminous supernovae. An alternative mechanism is needed to power such high luminosities, including magnetar spin down, pair-instability explosions and shell collisions. In this talk, I will present our work from discovery of superluminous supernovae with our "GREAT" (GRond-Epessto-ATlas) survey, which aim is to find superluminous supernovae at very first stage; to classification with the Public ESO Spectroscopic Survey for Transient Objects (PESSTO), and follow-up campaign with large facilities such as the Very Large Telescope. We found superluminous supernovae appear to occur exclusively in dwarf, metal-poor host galaxies, and a sub-solar metallicity seems required to produce superluminous supernovae. We also found a possible relation that if magnetar powering is the source of the extreme luminosity then the required initial spins appear to be correlated with metallicity of the host galaxy. Finally I will also focus on the diversity of superluminous supernovae and a challenge of metal rich environment has been found for SLSNe.

Where and When: How to Combine Information from the GW Signal and EM Counterpart Models to Inform and Optimize the EM Follow-up Strategy

The electromagnetic follow-up of a gravitational wave event requires astronomers to scan a wide sky region for the detection and identification of a transient whose features are very uncertain a priori. A sky position posterior probability map (“skymap”) is provided by the LIGO/Virgo collaboration (containing information on "where" to search), but no timing ("when") information is available, other than conjectures based on the expected properites of the candidate EM counterparts. I will describe a novel approach to schedule observations using information from GW parameter estimation, thus allowing for an event-specific optimization of the EM follow-up strategy. I will illustrate the result of applying the approach to an example NS-NS injection with an associated SGRB oprhan afterglow and dynamical ejecta macronova, showing that the follow-up is significantly improved. I will discuss the possible application of the method to future real GW triggers, including the case when only low-latency information is available.

Title: Science at Low Frequencies with the Long Wavelength Array

Speaker: Greg Taylor, University of New Mexico

Host: Farhad Yusef-Zadeh

Abstract: The Long Wavelength Array (LWA) is a new multi-purpose radio telescope operating in the frequency range 5-88 MHz with many different operational modes. Scientific programs include (1) the high-z universe, including distant radio galaxies and clusters - tools for understanding the earliest black holes and the cosmological evolution of Dark Matter and Dark Energy; (2) planetary, solar, and space science, including space-weather prediction and extra-solar planet searches; (3) studies of the Earth's ionosphere; and (4) the radio transient universe including the recent discovery of self-emission from meteors. The first station of the LWA, called LWA1, is located near the center of the VLA and has been operating for 6 years. A new station has begun operating at the Owens Valley Radio Observatory in California and a second station in New Mexcio is being commissioned. We are now combining these stations with the new, wide-band, low frequency capability on the VLA. I will discuss a number of scientific results and future prospects.
