Discovery is in the stars

I’ve always found it amazing how I come across articles just on the very topics I’ve been reading about and tonight is no different. Just this morning I was reading how a gentleman named Heinrich Schwabe, from Germany back in 1789, was looking for what he believed was the next planet Vulcan.  Unfortunately, he thought it existed within the orbit of Mercury.

For that story and more, check out The Sun’s Heartbeat and Other Stories from the Life of the Star that Powers Our Planet by Bob Berman. Meanwhile, for those today who are looking for the next Vulcan, they might do well to read this article over at EarthSky entitled “New Method of Finding Planets Scores it’s First Discovery“. So where is my telescope?

Sincerely-
