The mass of Beta Pictoris c from Beta Pictoris b orbital motion

no code yet • 22 Sep 2021

From the astrometry of planet b only, we can (i) detect the presence of $\beta$ Pictoris c and (ii) constrain its mass to $10. 04^{+4. 53}_{-3. 10}\, M_{\rm Jup}$.

C/2014 UN271 (Bernardinelli-Bernstein): the nearly spherical cow of comets

no code yet • 20 Sep 2021

C/2014 UN271 (Bernardinelli-Bernstein) is a comet incoming from the Oort cloud which is remarkable in having the brightest (and presumably largest) nucleus of any well-measured comet, and having been discovered at heliocentric distance $r_h\approx29$ au farther than any Oort-cloud member.
