We present reddening maps of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, based on color measurements of the red clump stars.
Surprising discovery of non-pulsating stars residing inside the instability of LMC Cepheids is further examined with the help of Strömgren photometry.
We are happy to welcome a new post-doc fellow in Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center, Warsaw, Poland.
We are happy to welcome Gonzalo Rojas – a new PhD student in Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center, Warsaw, Poland.
We are happy to welcome a new post-doc fellow in Universidad de Concepción, Chile.
Today we are celebrating with our colleague Darek Graczyk, who obtained the title of doctor habilitated! Habilitation is a recognition of the contribution that Darek brought to astronomy – over the years he published...
An international team of astronomers within the Araucaria Project measured the distance to the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) with an exceptional accuracy of 1%.
The Araucaria Meeting is a biennial event that brings together 24 astronomers from Poland, France, Italy, Germany, the USA, and Chile, who work on the calibration of the cosmic distance scale and related topics....
Measurements of parallaxes of 81 detached eclipsing binary stars in the Milky Way allowed for the determination of the global zero-point shift in the Gaia Data Release 2 (DR2) parallaxes.
Applications are invited for one postdoctoral position at the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center (NCAC), in Warsaw, Poland, in the field of extragalactic distance scale. The successful applicant will work with Prof. Grzegorz Pietrzyński on...
