However, astronomers using the European Southern Observatory's La Silla Observatory in Chile discovered in 1989 that it was actually a crab-shaped nebula after obtaining a clear image of it.
Visible from the South Pacific, Chile and Argentina, a stroke of luck means the Moon's shadow will plunge into darkness Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory and La Silla Observatory in Chile, two of the most famous astronomy sites in the world.
Xavier Bonfils (University Grenoble Alpes, France) and colleagues turned the HARPS spectrograph at the La Silla Observatory in Chile on Ross 128, the 15th-closest star to the Sun.
In the case of K2-18b, astronomers began observing it with the European Southern Observatory's planet-hunting HARPS instrument, which is part of the 3.6-meter telescope in the La Silla Observatory. It appeared to be a super-Earth, a rocky planet more massive than Earth, but Kepler couldn't tell us for sure.
All three planets were discovered as periodic dips in starlight in late 2015 using TRAPPIST, a telescope at La Silla Observatory in Chile.
WASHINGTON (CyHAN)- Astronomers using the TRAPPIST telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory have discovered three planets with sizes and temperatures similar to those of Venus and Earth, orbiting an ultra-cool dwarf star just 40 light-years from Earth.
The astronomers used new data from HARPS spectrometer at the ESO's La Silla observatory in Chile to measure tiny periodic changes in the motion of the star.
Using a robotic telescope at the ESO La Silla Observatory, astronomers have measured the velocity of the explosions known as gamma-ray bursts.
In this context, ESO undoubtedly took the leadership with the new HARPS spectrograph of the 3.6-meter telescope at the ESO's La Silla Observatory.
To do that, Cloutier and his fellow researchers used data from the High Accuracy Radial Velocity Planet Searcher on the European Southern Observatory's 3.6-meter telescope in La Silla Observatory, Chile.
Now, Fabo Feng (University of Hertfordshire, UK) and colleagues have applied a new technique that removes all known sources of noise from 9,000 spectroscopic measurements of Tau Ceti, collected using the High Accuracy Radial Velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) spectrograph installed on the 3.6-meter telescope at La Silla Observatory in Chile.
