Mapping the United Federation of Planets:
An Astronomer's Guide to the Galaxy

Mia Bovill, Space Telescope Science Institute

How big is Star Trek's United Federation of Planets? How far did the various starship captains
travel? Where exactly are the Klingons? To answer these questions, we need to leave the future
spacefaring of the Enterprise behind and ask questions of astronomers in the here and now of
21st century Earth. Where is the Earth located within our Milky Way? What are the overall shape
and scale of the galaxy? And just how can we decipher the Milky Way's features when we are stuck
at one location inside it? Come for the Star Trek, and stay to hear the centuries long, ongoing,
and arduous tale of how a "minor bipedal species" is mapping the Milky Way.

NERD ALERT!!!!!


Long presentation and when I skipped ahead segments, almost all of it went, "whoosh" right over my feeble brain. But the Q&A session at the end was fascinating. I'll need to make the time to watch again in it's entirety.

This October, look for Pegasus, the great winged horse of Greek mythology, prancing
across the autumn night sky. Binoculars and small telescopes will reveal the glowing
nucleus and spiral arms of the Andromeda Galaxy, and the Orionid meteor shower
peaks on the night of October 21.

In December, look for Saturn’s iconic rings, and Mercury and Venus’s appearances. Eta Cassiopeiae,
a double star, is visible with binoculars or a small telescope—look for its gold and blue hues. Finally,
don’t miss the mid-December Geminid meteor shower, which boasts as many as 60 colorful meteors per hour.
