Halo Brown Dwarf[edit]

Thank you for creating that 2MASS page for the Substellar Subdwarf. Thanks, CarpD (^_^) [aka. marasama]


Yup, it is a small internet!!! Thanks for the info. on the page making. I kind of stumbled around on wikipedia. Thanks, CarpD (^_^)

Question regarding APOD copyrights[edit]

Is the text on Astronomy Picture of the Day under copyright? It looks like the first two paragraphs of the article V838 Monocerotis consits largely of a copy/paste job on this APOD picture, which dates back to the earliest revision of that page. Chaos syndrome 21:50, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Ok, I've put a rewrite request on the article rather than put a copyvio notice on it. Thanks. Chaos syndrome 22:23, 5 August 2006 (UTC)



I want to thank you for your efforts to make Wikipedia a verifiable and trustworthy encyclopedia. (I ran into you at Nkoroo, where you rightly added {{unreferenced}} — I fixed that.) By the way, I hope you don't mind I have put this highly interesting subpage of yours on my watchlist. Kind regards, — mark 12:57, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Breaking News![edit]

Hey! The IAU voted today and approved the therm pluton and accepted charon, ceres, pluto, and xena, AS PLUTON PLANETS!

Well You have to admit, the IAUs summit in prague is convincing, undo changes to ceres, the other changes were footnotes on how they will be coming under fire.


hello. i am sushant gupta from india. actually i am new to this place. would you be my friend??? and help me out. i want to ask you that what actually we have to do here. i mean that we just have to edit the articles. do wikipedia has video tutorial. well yes can you also tell me that how can i insert a picture. actually i want to replace a picture. i have got the same picture in high resolution and just want to replace it. oh! yes on my wacthlist i watched your name . may i know what was that.

thankyou Sushant gupta 16:18, 20 August 2006 (UTC)sushant gupta


hello!! what if i replace that picture which is copyrighted and mention the source from where i got it. well!! when i was going through your user page i got that most of interests matches mine. can you also give me some info about astronomy. well, can you tell me your date of birth.

thankyou Sushant gupta 16:11, 21 August 2006 (UTC)sushant gupta

M104 Group[edit]

You were one of the two critics of my "destroy all groups" comment in the Astronomical Object Wikiproject forum, so I wanted to run this by you first and see if I have a convincing case.

First, please look at Sombrero Galaxy under "Environment". I think I have made a good case that the membership of the Sombrero Galaxy to any group is questionable. (A galaxy pair is not a galaxy group.)

Next, look at the (mostly empty) M104 group of galaxies page. It does not make much sense to keep this page if it is uncertain as to whether the Sombrero Galaxy does belong to a group. In this light, would you support a move on my part to get the "M104 group of galaxies" page deleted?

Thank you, George J. Bendo 14:20, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for your response on this question. I also sent this message to Marasama, who I asked to email the person who created the Atlas of the Universe website with a CC to me. I am going to wait for the response before moving forward with deleting the article.
Also, please note that the Atlas of the Universe website does list good references, but to write the group information for the Sombrero Galaxy article, I went to the website's references themselves rather than rely on the website for secondary information. George J. Bendo 18:24, 23 August 2006 (UTC)


do you remember me. i am sushant gupta. actually i want to replace the picture 'crab nebule'. i have it in a higher resolution. i have also got some more high resolution pictures on astronomy. if you don't mind can you tell me your date of birth.

thankyou Sushant gupta 15:06, 24 August 2006 (UTC)sushant gupta

Charon is not a satelite[edit]

A satelite is defined as the secondary object where the Barycenter of the two objects is inside the primary object. The Barycenter of Pluto-Charon is 1200km above the surface of Pluto. --md84419talk 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Okay, fair enough. Many sources on the Internet are stating that Charon is a dwarf planet, but it isn't among the three (Pluto, 2003 UB313 and Ceres) listed in the IAU press release and I cannot find any other IAU source stating that Charon is a dwarf planet. --md84419talk 24 August 2006 (UTC)


i asked your date of birth so that i can find your chinese astrological sign.

thankyou Sushant gupta 14:24, 25 August 2006 (UTC)sushant gupta


is it necessary to be the member wikimedia commons or i can straight insert the picture.

C-type Asteroid Compositions[edit]

I have been reviewing the articles for various asteroids. I would like to thank you for creating so many. However, there is a problem with your statements about many C-type asteroids. You state that they are carbonate-rich. This is not correct. C-types contain few carbonates, but a lot of carbonaceous material. I have edited the articles for asteroids 241 and below, but would you be willing to correct the other C-types further along the list? Thank you. Michaelbusch 20:08, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

PYGMIES + DWARFS arguments[edit]

Hi, you edited PZ Myers. A related article, PYGMIES + DWARFS arguments, has been nominated for deletion. You can comment on this nomination here: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/PYGMIES + DWARFS arguments. Thanks. Sanguinity 17:27, 3 September 2006 (UTC)


You have been writing/correcting about Jyväskylä and Jyväskylän maalaiskunta. Maybe you noticed or maybe not, but some of the childish lies about Jyväskylä apparently written by the people of maalaiskunta, some of which were based on a "study" that (you can look up the study itself) had no merits whatsoever - the same criteria being applied to maalaiskunta which the study did not cover, would have given really bad results as well. "homekoulut", schools with the sick building syndrome are a real problem in maalaiskunta and a real threat to the children's health.


The source for the nickname of the second moon of EL61 is Mike Brown and his students (Kristina Barkume, Darin Ragozzine, and Emily Schaller). They've been using the name since they discovered the object, as a shorthand in conversation and in presentations to other scientists. For better or worse, there has been considerably less media coverage of this one than of Eris, so there are no press releases. Reference would either be personal communication or Darin's DPS presentation or departmental seminar. Michaelbusch 17:23, 25 November 2006 (UTC)


Updated DYK query On December 26, 2006, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Stegosaurus in popular culture, which you created. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

Thanks for your contributions!! Nishkid64 01:18, 26 December 2006 (UTC)


I thought that you might be interested that AMK152 proposed, in a series of edits on 27 December 2006, a geotimebox for various articles dealing with the Geologic time scale. For example: AMK152's edit of Hadean looked like this. See discussion at Template talk:Geotimebox. --Bejnar 20:44, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

It was suggested to merge the Geology timescale project into the Geology project as the first one got inactive. I've seen you've done quite a bit for geology timescale. Would you be interested in joining in Wikipedia:WikiProject Geology? Solarapex 05:28, 8 May 2007 (UTC)


Hi - it has come to our notice that you have recently created a new stub type. As it clearly states at WP:STUB, at the top of most stub categories, on the template page for new WikiProjects and in many other places on Wikipedia, new stub types should be proposed prior to creation at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals, in order to check whether the new stub type is already covered by existing stub types, whether it is named according to stub naming guidelines, whether it reaches the standard threshold for creation of a new stub type, whether it crosses existing stub type hierarchies, and whether better use could be made of a WikiProject-specific talk page template.

In the case of your new stub type, it does not appear to meet the standard threshold for creation of a new stub type (60 currently existing stubs). Your new stub type is currently listed at WP:WSS/D - please feel free to make any comments there as to any reason why this stub type should not be proposed for deletion at WP:SFD. And please, in future, propose new stub types first! Grutness...wha? 01:46, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Looking in discussion pages[edit]

Look at these following talk pages:

Nearby stars and nearest stars[edit]

Can you edit the number of nearby stars to a higher number of notable stars and change the nearest starname/stardistance to a nearer notable star other than B/F stars in every constellation articles' template box if necessary as you observe in the list of stars by constellation. Cosmium 21:50, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, that fine for you to change just the nearest starname and stardistance, but I'll change the number of nearby stars. Cosmium 22:53, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Completed the star tables[edit]

Thank you sooooooo much for making the pretty new star tables in every articles of the list of stars by constellations by making more like the other websites than simpler, former tables. I will give you $1000 for that! Because you did a lot since the Christmas Eve and took you 10 days and your done just five days before I'll go back to school (January 8, next Monday).--huh huh huh huh huh!!!

Your revert to Enceladus (moon) edit summary[edit]

I apprechiate you reverting my edit on Enceladus (moon). All contributions are apprechiated but in your edit summary for the revert, you put something like this:

Do not use the name Luna. There is no such moon

When you see 'Luna' as a moon on Wikipedia, the article is talking about our Moon, not a moon that is actually named Luna.

Regards, Kamope 15:30, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

NGC 4631 edits[edit]

Here are my responses:

  • We have been placing nicknames in the "other names" section of the infoboxes consistently. It is an appropriate place for the nicknames.
  • I agree about the forced linebreaks in the infobox. However, the infoboxes are currently set up such that the boxes will list all "other names" on a single line. This means that the infobox may stretch to a length of 400-500 pixels without the line breaks. Perhaps Mike Peel can solve this probelm when he revises the infoboxes.
  • I will keep your information regarding italics and bold type in mind. I was not completely clear on their use.
  • I started revising the galaxy articles by placing the references below the external links, and I think other people started using the format for galaxy articles. If this is a severe problem, it is something that WilliamKF could fix.

Thank you for taking the time to discuss these changes with me. Dr. Submillimeter 19:20, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Basin Groups[edit]

Concerning your comment on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Basin Groups. It is not just one book. I reported both Harland's book and the GeoWhen database because those were the most authoritative, and were directly addressing the geologic timescale. The usage occurs in a number of articles, for example, Birriel, Jennifer (2006) "The Faint Young Sun Paradox" Mercury 35:6, pp.12-19, on page 17.

re: Category:Date of birth missing[edit]

Good evening. Per the discussion about privacy concerns expressed at Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons#Privacy of birthdays, date of birth should generally not be added to the biographies of living non-public or semi-public figures. So far, that policy has been interpreted fairly strictly with a pretty high bar being set for the definition of "public figures" who are assumed to have given up their rights to privacy.

By the same token, we should not be adding Category:Date of birth missing to articles unless we have made the case that the person meets the "public figures" threshold. Otherwise, we're just baiting new users into adding content even though the community has already said that we shouldn't include that particular data point. Category:Year of birth missing is okay but the exact date is often not. Thanks for your help. Rossami (talk) 23:35, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

That is not correct[edit]

"The Turks and Hungarians share a lot of history, which means they also share a lot of vocabulary. That doesn't make them linguistically related in any way. Another example is Finnish, which has many thousands of words and idioms loaned from the Indo-European language Swedish. Still the languages are grammatically and otherwise very different" Turks are Altai people. Hungarians are Urals with Altai mixture(Huns), they speak Ural language now, they do not use Altai, grammatically. Huns are also Altai people, so they use Attila name. Attila lived in 300-400's. In 1400's and 1500's, Turks and Hungarians made wars, some share of history started. Greek language has more Turkish words than Hungarian, but they are not linguistically related at all. But, Hungarians are mixture of Ural and Altai peoples. Finnish is very similar to Hungarian. But, Swedish is very similar to German. I think Finnish as a Ural language is somewhat similar to Turkish, because you write and read the same way, in both languages, for example. At first sight, Indian and English seem very different, but they are grammatically related. Why is not Finnish and Turkish related, whereas Indian, Persian, English are proven to be related? I will search for it. Nevertheless, even if Ural and Altai are distinct families, we know Hungarians are mixed with Altais. Also, Turkish and Hungarian does not share a lot of vocabulary, but less vocabulary. Finally, links between Turks and Hungarians are at very past(300), but sharing of a lot of vocabulary is at near past(1500).Ayasi 22:05, 23 March 2007 (UTC) I mean by Uralic peoples, all different ethnic groups that speak Uralic languages. I know genetics is different than language ties. Also, I am more interested in linguistics than genetics. I mean Hindi,Urdi,etc. by Indian (Indo in Indo-European), not Dravidian language families, of course. And, Sanksrit is very different than English in vocabulary, and only experts can see the similarity. By Hun blood which also explains Attila name, you mean genetical heritage, of course. Because, blood concept is Aristotle's thesis for heritage, and not modern. (Although I am not interested in genetics, 4 years ago I was interested and I read that in a biology book.) Maybe, Ural-Altai concept can be wrong, but I don't think Altai languages concept is wrong. Because, Japanese and Turkic languages (especially Kazakh) are very similar, in rules; but they are different in vocabulary since Japanese loans words from Chinese, or Turkic languages loan words from Persian, Arabic. Turkish people who learn Japanese see the similarity, but I do not know Japanese. Ayasi 11:46, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Oort cloud[edit]

I've put a proposed rewrite of the final section of this on the article's talk page (in response to your December comment!). Comments? Chrislintott 11:15, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Planetary number[edit]

I made up the planetary number for designating planets, including planets in our solar system and extrasolar planets. Planets in our solar system are numbered from 0-7 in the order of apparent magnitude and extrasolar planets are numbered from above 7 in order of discovery. When designating planets, it must have P followed by a number with no space.

Is that's OK that I'll or you'll could put planetary number into some wikipedia articles about the planets.

Is that's OK that I'll or you'll create planetary number article. If so, it needs reliable sources before creation, otherwise the new article will be deleted.

--BlueEarth 21:47, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

The numbers in planetary number is infinitely many. Even if there are tens of thousands of exoplanets in next couple decades, the planetary number will be in the range of 10 × 105. It is possible to number all of the planets in our galaxy, using in billions. If there are 1080 billion planets in our galaxy, the highest planetary number is 1080 billion. We never use all of the numbers. It is just like numbering stars using the star catalogues. For example, HD catalogue can number up to 225,000 while HIP number up to 115,100. I'm a person that I'm making up the numbering system for designating planets. When I'm going to be an astronomer, I will make planetary number to be used in scientific literature, even if I work in IAU. BlueEarth 19:55, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Naming extrasolar planets[edit]

Why don't IAU will never name extrasolar planets, but it should. We should start naming extrasolar planets. Only few extrasolar planets have unofficial names. Stars, galaxies, nebulas, clusters, and galaxy clusters are extrasolar objects that have names. In our solar system; planets, dwarf planets, moons, asteroids, TNO, SDOs, and comets have names. BlueEarth 21:47, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

I'm naming some of the extrasolar planets. I should name important exoplanets, exoplanets that orbit BF stars, and some exoplanets that used other techniques other than radial velocity. BlueEarth 20:03, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Other designations for planets[edit]

I made the Microsoft Word article about the 'List of planets' including planets in our solar system and extrasolar planets. The other desinations for planets are by constellation, by year, and by parent star. In parent star, I used numbers after 'P' with no space instead of using b,c,d and so on. Same thing for other designations above. It also includes planetary number and names. The rest of them includes mass type, composition type, and appearance type. BlueEarth 20:03, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Stars in fiction[edit]

I'd like to draw your attention to Talk: Aldebaran in fiction, where User:AldeBaer apparently has a grand plan to stuff all the "(Astronomical location) in fiction" articles back into their respective non-fictional articles -- starting with dumping all of the "Aldebaran in fiction" refs into Aldebaran, which would leave us back where we started.

User: BlueEarth[edit]

Oh good god. I had no idea. I am certainly learning a lot about conduct on Wikipedia from reading the dialogue between other users and User:BlueEarth. How old is this person anyway. I am shocked at the number of Articles this person has credited to themselves. I suspect that at least one professional Astronomer has quit Wikipedia over this user (ie. Dr.Millimeter). I was not sure at first whether to take him/her seriously or as a vandal. If you have anything you thing I should know I would gladly read it.
Thanks - GabrielVelasquez (talk) 00:34, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

I wanted to ask you, because I didn't want to make the same mistakes that BlueEarth did, the who/when/why of changing or adding to articles because. I created a formula from combining a couple of simple astronomy formulas and rearranging them alegbraically. I don't consider this new or (OR) original research being that it is so simple it just seems to me that it has been overlooked. This is a link to the formula, which I use to calculate the insolation for any (extrasolar) planet where the necessary values are known.
I gather that if it is considered "OR" it will be deleted, is that the case(?), because L=4π·R2aT4 and L=4π·d2f are both pretty basic astronomy formulas, and algebra is not original, so f=(R2aT4) ÷d2 can't be original, right?

Re: Forest planet[edit]

I thought that forest planets is a type of habitable planets may likely exist orbiting the stars, and so is the ocean and desert planets.

I written this article by hypothesizing whats the forest planet would be like and its nature. The reason I didn't add references to forest planet article is that because I was searching for web for forest planet and couldn't find good sites. I would like to have somebody add references to the article.

The forest planet article does contain examples of science fiction as Star Wars and Star Trek, and as a type of hypothetical planet.

I've added astronomy categories of desert planet article including Mars, extrasolar planet, and types of planet in addition to fictional planets and science fiction themes, because desert planet is also a hypothetical type of planet, but Mars is most likely a desert planet, so desert planet is a fact.

I knew that Bryan Derksen had created ocean planet recently, but the article doesn't contain info about science fiction. This article is pure astronomical. BlueEarth (talk) 00:41, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

BF and PS catalogue[edit]

I counted the total numbers of Bayer-Flamsteed stars for every constellations in Wikipedia via the list of stars by constellation and I came up with 3364 stars, but when I looked up in wikisky.org_all_groups, there are 4118 stars. Which numbers of stars is more publishly correct. If 4118, does the list of stars by constellation in Wikipedia contain all these stars? I don't think that Star Table List contain every BF stars.

I also just created PS catalog (Planetary System catalogue) to be used to catalog stars with planets in numbers in order of discovery of orbiting planets. BlueEarth (talk) 03:16, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

I looked in this website and found that there is no table of all BF stars in each constellations, but all about the information about the table. The info about the table is not just BF stars but also HD/HIP stars. Can you find the website and post an external link on my talk page that goes directly to the table of only BF stars. BlueEarth (talk) 19:05, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Do you know exactly how many Bayer and Flamsteed stars are there? In these wikipedia articles, I putted 1564 Bayer stars and 2554 Flamsteed stars from BlueEarth (talk) 20:03, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Do most BF stars have known physical properties such as mass, radius, luminosity, and surface temperature. BlueEarth (talk) 21:09, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Making list of stars by constellation tables sortable[edit]

Can you make tables for all list of stars by constellation articles sortable for all columns nicely. BlueEarth (talk) 20:08, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

No, I have other things to do. Why can't you do it by yourself? If there are quirks, they're due to limitations in the table sorting template or in JavaScript itself. — JyriL talk 18:20, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Redirecting links to extrasolar planets[edit]

I am appreciating that you should redirect some of the red linked letters in candidates section of list of stars with confirmed extrasolar planets to a planet section of stars with extrasolar planets articles. BlueEarth (talk) 17:32, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Inclination for most extrasolar planets[edit]

Do you think that about 77% of all extrasolar planets have inclinations between 45-135°. I posted this into the extrasolar planet article under measured properties section on 23:16 May 7, 2008. BlueEarth (talk) 20:31, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

No. How did you end up with that value? — JyriL talk 14:09, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
Because me and some astronomers think that most protoplanetary disks made from galactic disk and molecular starcloud take place between 45° to 135° to the plane of the Milky Way. After when stars form, they flatten out into protoplanetary disks as newborn stars move around the center of our galaxy. Protoplanetary disks are usually flatten out with some slope to the plane of our galaxy by the shaping effect of the rotating galactic disk. So planets orbiting the stars are in the same plane as stars orbit the center more commonly than perpendicular to that, and hence more edge-ons than face-ons to Earth. So we estimate the ratio as 77 edge-ons, 23 face-ons. BlueEarth (talk) 20:52, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
What you said is incorrect. Stellar axes are pretty much randomly distributed. --— JyriL talk 17:12, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Request to move article PSR B1257+12 b incomplete[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

You recently filed a request at Wikipedia:Requested moves to move the page PSR B1257+12 b to a different title - however your proposal is either incomplete or has been contested as being controversial. As a result, it has been moved to the incomplete and contested proposals section. Requests that remain incomplete after five days will be removed.

Please make sure you have completed all three of the following:

  1. Added {{move|NewName}} at the top of the talk page of the page you want moved, replacing "NewName" with the new name for the article. This creates the required template for you there.
  2. Added {{subst:RMtalk|NewName|reason for move}} to the bottom of the talk page of the page you want to be moved, to automatically create a discussion section there.
  3. Added {{subst:RMlink|PageName|NewName|reason for move}} to the top of today's section here.

If you need any further guidance, please leave a message at Wikipedia talk:Requested moves or contact me on my talk page. - JPG-GR (talk) 00:11, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi Jyril,

I've proposed to move List of asteroids and related pages (meanings of names, subpages, etc.) to List of minor planets etc., since that's the official terminology and it's a bit weird to call Pluto or even Quaoar an "asteroid". Since this will require a bot, I want to be sure there are no objections before going ahead. So far the vote has been in favor. kwami (talk) 00:21, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Z Centauri[edit]

A tag has been placed on Z Centauri, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

Horribly, horribly misleading redirect; Z Centauri is a differnet star and the bayer designation z Centauri is barely used for the target. Needs immediate deletion to prevent damage to readers

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. StringTheory11 (t • c) 01:31, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
