Daystar condition = Thermal radiation within acceptable margins. Two active starspot-groups and one huge 'solar'flare reported. Slight communication interference is expected.

Discovered several warm areas in the river, probably due to seismic activity in this region. A follow-up is required.

Daystar condition = Thermal radiation within acceptable margins. Two active starspot-groups and one huge 'solar'flare reported which has grown significantly. Elevated communication interference is expected.

The warm areas in the river are due to underground lava currents.

Daystar condition = Thermal radiation within acceptable margins. Two active starspot-groups and one huge 'solar'flare reported that keeps his volume. Elevated communication interference is still expected.

Some flora species have more in common with their terran cousins than thought before.

Brightness fluctuations at Betelgeuze (Alpha Orionis) are within normal range. Further follow-up remains as said in earlier reports. The nature of these fluctuations still aren't solved. Being a variable star isn't quite enough to explain the sometimes huge intervals/dropouts. A Dyson sphere could be a possible answer but not yet confirmed.

I wonder how long it's gonna take before another boost/drop will occur.

One of the most massive black hole pairs observed to date by gravitational waves also seemed to merge on a non-circular orbit. The suggested solution involves a chaotic triple drama inside a giant disk of gas around a super massive black hole in a galaxy far away.

We developed a neural network deep learning technique to extract hidden turbulent motion information from observations of the main star. Tests on three different sets of simulation data showed that it is possible to infer the horizontal motion from data for the temperature and vertical motion.

New X-ray and optical observations shed light on the remarkable X-ray filament of the Gamma-ray pulsar PSR~J2030+4415. Images of the associated Hα bow shock's evolution over the past decade compared with its velocity structure provide an improved kinematic distance of ∼0.5kpc. These velocities also imply that the pulsar spin axis lies ∼15∘ from the proper motion axis which is close to the plane of the sky. The multi-bubble shock structure indicates that the bow shock stand-off was compressed to a small value ∼20−30y ago when the pulsar broke through the bow shock to its present bubble. This compression allowed multi-TeV pulsar e± to escape to the external ISM, lighting up an external magnetic field structure as the `filament'. The narrow filament indicates excellent initial confinement and the full 15′ (2.2~pc=7~lt-y) projected length of the filament indicates rapid e± propagation to its end. Spectral variation along the filament suggests that the injected particle energy evolved during the break-through event.

Our team reported over 11 million neutrino strikes. The vast majority were of relatively low energy, but a small fraction had incredibly high energies — some of the highest energies ever recorded in any particle.

Those neutrinos seem to come from all over the sky, indicating that they have extragalactic origins. (Otherwise, they would tend to stay within the plane of the Milky Way.) Because neutrinos don't really interact with anything else, they travel in straight lines, meaning the direction they come from is truly the direction of their origins (unlike their cousins, cosmic rays, which get deflected by magnetic fields).

Despite those millions of detections, the highest-energy neutrinos don't appear to be correlated with a particular kind of galaxy or location on the sky. Surely, some high-energy process is generating them, but it's not clear exactly what that is. Further analysis is therefore needed.
