Unfortunately the Ibiblio server and thus the CelestialMatters site was down for a considerable amount of time during the past two days. Here is a quantitative account of the downtime etc:

Since several hours things seem to be back to normal.

celestia.Sci Development Forum

After 2.5 years of secluded development, I am now very happy to announce that celestia.Sci is entering public development in a SourceForge SVN repository very shortly! Moreover, a distinct and competent “celestia.Sci Development Team” has now begun to form. Read more about

Exo-planets

As of today John Van Vliet, Hungry4info and the CM staff have initiated an Exo-planet workshop.

http://forum.celestialmatters.org/viewt ... ?f=2&t=541

I'd love to see at CM a lively and knowledgable discussion about this important subject.
Of course, the idea is to eventually distill the credible results into celestia.Sci.

Constructive participation is much appreciated...

Large Stellar Halos for all celestia.Sci Galaxies

http://forum.celestialmatters.org/viewt ... f=11&t=544

Here is a celestia.Sci screenshot of the tightly wound Sa-type NGC 38 with its star halo (from recent Hubble observations) and a bright foreground star. So you may get a feel already what the new feature looks like for any of the 10000+ celestia.Sci galaxies:

Do you know why ?

I have recently updated the phpbb software of the Celestial Matters forum to the latest version. It was absolutely necessary to keep spammers and other unwanted users out.

Unfortunately, a number of our nice custom display features could not be adapted easily. Re-installing them is still planned, but will surely take additional time. The output about active subjects in the CM forum on the right border of the CM Web site is one such custom feature. Since some old custom styled pages cannot be rendered anymore now, they appear as "not found".
