Find out astrophysicsman's Instagram The image above shows a rare transit of the planet Venus.
In this post I'll be explaining the transit method for detecting exoplanets.
As astronomers view a particular star using the Kepler telescope (or other planet hunters), what they're looking for is a slight dim in the stars light caused by a planet that is moving in front of the star and thus dims the stars light. This is pretty easy to imagine. Imagine a star and a planet orbiting that star. As the planet passes in front of the star some of its light is dimmed due to the planet. So all you would need to do is measure the amount of light that is dimmed. The amount of dimming can allow astronomers to know what size and mass the planet is. For example, if a larger planet, say Jupiter sized, were to pass in front of the star more light would be blocked then if a planet the size of Mercury passed in front of the star. So the more the light dims the larger the planet. This is the reason why massive Jupiter sized planets are much easier to detect than small Earth-sized planets. 
The transit method is pretty simple, just measure the stars luminosity and using certain telescopes try to look for any dimming in the stars light. If you manage to detect the stars light dim by the same amount twice or more, then you have just provided evidence of a new planet.

月に着陸すると体重が6分の1になってハイジャンプも軽々できるとか。
フィギュアスケートのジャンプのマネとかできたら楽しいでしょうね。

Find out birth_of_genius's Instagram Double post day! Happy 87th birthday Buzz Aldrin! Buzz is an important astronaut and inspired the name for the famous Pixar character, Buzz Lightyear. Buzz is most famous for the Apollo 11 mission with Neil Armstrong being the second person to walk the Moon. He was also part of Gemini 12, the last Gemini mission, along with Jim Lovell. In his retirement he has been busy writing books; his last book was released April of 2016 called "No Dream is Too High." (1/20/17) 1432129624631957991_4293187095

Find out epixelimages's Instagram ISS crosses in front of the Sun over Port of Brisbane in Queensland Australia.
It was a very hot January morning with high humidity and rather uncomfortable, but near cloudless skies gave a good opportunity to see my first ISS silhouetted against the Sun in 2017!
At 483.2km above the Port of Brisbane and with the visible path just touching the edge of Brisbane Airport, it rapidly passed over from North West towards the South East and disappearing over the southern end of Moreton Bay.
The ISS passed near two Sunspots AR2625 & AR2626.
