This paper describes the database of optical spectra of BL Lacertae (BLL) objects (Z BLL objects) available at https://web.oapd.inaf.it/zbllac/ [https://web.oapd.inaf.it/zbllac/] . At present, it contains calibrated spectra for 295 BLL. For about 35% of them, we report a firm measure of redshift z , while for 35 sources we set a lower limit on z based on the detection of intervening absorption systems

We build a catalog of 88 eclipsing binaries with spectroscopic information, taking advantage of observations from both the Large Sky Area Multi-Object fiber Spectroscopic Telescope and the Palomar Transient Factory surveys. A software pipeline is constructed to identify binary candidates by examining their

We present a sample of ∼140,000 primary red clump (RC) stars of spectral signal-to-noise ratios higher than 20 from the Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fibre Spectroscopic Telescope (LAMOST) Galactic spectroscopic surveys, selected based on their positions in the metallicity-dependent effective temperature–surface gravity and color–metallicity diagrams, supervised by high-quality Kepler asteroseismology

During Parker Solar Probe’s first close encounter with the Sun in early 2018 November, a large number of impulsive rotations in the magnetic field were detected within 50 R s ; these also occurred in association with short-lived impulsive solar wind bursts in speed. These impulsive features are now called “switchback” events. We examined a set of these switchbacks where the boundary transition into

In this work, we present a new method to estimate cosmological parameters accurately based on the artificial neural network (ANN), and a code called ECoPANN (Estimating Cosmological Parameters with ANN) is developed to achieve parameter inference. We test the ANN method by estimating the basic parameters of the concordance cosmological model using the simulated temperature power spectrum of the cosmic

A prevailing theory for the interstellar production of complex organic molecules (COMs) involves formation on warm dust-grain surfaces, via the diffusion and reaction of radicals produced through grain-surface photodissociation of stable molecules. However, some gas-phase O-bearing COMs, notably acetaldehyde (CH 3 CHO), methyl formate (CH 3 OCHO), and dimethyl ether (CH 3 OCH 3 ), are now observed

Increasingly powerful and multiplexed spectroscopic facilities promise detailed chemical abundance patterns for millions of resolved stars in galaxies beyond the Milky Way (MW). Here, we employ the Cramér–Rao lower bound (CRLB) to forecast the precision to which stellar abundances for metal-poor, low-mass stars outside the MW can be measured for 41 current (e.g., Keck, MMT, the Very Large Telescope

The Galactic Plane Infrared Polarization Survey (GPIPS) seeks to characterize the magnetic field in the dusty Galactic disk using near-infrared stellar polarimetry. All GPIPS observations were completed using the 1.83 m Perkins telescope and Mimir instrument. GPIPS observations surveyed 76 deg 2 of the northern Galactic plane, from Galactic longitudes 18°–56° and latitudes −1° to +1°, in the H band

In this paper we present our attempt to constrain the first catalog of solar failed eruptions. We used our automatic algorithm that is able to search for dynamic features in the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO)/Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) database. We ran the algorithm on the entire SDO/AIA 171 Å data set. For the time interval from 2010 May 20 to 2019 May 20 we found 12,192 dynamic events.

Radial velocity (RV) variable stars are important in astrophysics. The Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope (LAMOST) spectroscopic survey has provided ∼6.5 million stellar spectra in its Data Release 4 (DR4). During the survey ∼4.7 million unique sources were targeted and ∼1 million stars observed repeatedly. The probabilities of stars being RV variables are estimated by comparing

The number of known periodic variables has grown rapidly in recent years. Thanks to its large field of view and faint limiting magnitude, the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF) offers a unique opportunity to detect variable stars in the northern sky. Here, we exploit ZTF Data Release 2 (DR2) to search for and classify variables down to r ∼ 20.6 mag. We classify 781,602 periodic variables into 11 main

Several studies have shown the importance of electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves to the pitch angle scattering of energetic particles in the radiation belt, especially relativistic electrons, thus contributing to their net loss from the outer radiation belt to the upper atmosphere.

Future surveys focusing on understanding the nature of dark energy (e.g., Euclid and WFIRST) will cover large fractions of the extragalactic sky in near-IR slitless spectroscopy. These surveys will detect a large number of galaxies that will have only one emission line in the covered spectral range. In order to maximize the scientific return of these missions, it is imperative that single emission

Searches for gravitational microlensing events are traditionally concentrated on the central regions of the Galactic bulge but many microlensing events are expected to occur in the Galactic plane, far from the Galactic Center. Owing to the difficulty in conducting high-cadence observations of the Galactic plane over its vast area, which are necessary for the detection of microlensing events, their

From Hubble Space Telescope/Cosmic Origins Spectrograph spectra of five quasars, 16 outflows are detected. For 11 outflows, we are able to constrain their distances to the central source ( R ) and their energetics. In instances of multiple electron number density determinations (used in the calculation of R ) for the same outflow, the values are consistent within errors. For the 11 outflows, eight
