PICTURE OF THE MONTH
Saturn and Jupiter in conjunction | Amidst the clouds, Jupiter and Saturn photographed at the height of their conjunction on 21 December 2020. In the image, the 4 main moons of Jupiter, and some of Saturn, as well as its rings can also be seen. These two planets will not be so close to each other again until 2080. | IEEC - Kike Herrero
The KELT-16 b exoplanet | One of the scientific programmes of the Joan Oró Telescope, at the Montsec Astronomical Observatory, is the observation of transits of known exoplanets in order to study their properties. In the star TYC 2688-1839-1, the hot exoplanet called KELT-16 b (only detectable by means of a transit) is known. | IEEC - Kike Herrero
