Selecting the Star List for Parkes

Project Phoenix plans to observe a total of 1000 stars over the entire sky. Large telescopes in the Northern Hemisphere can see stars down to a declination of -35 degrees. Given the fraction of sky south of that limit, we would expect 172 out of the 1000 stars to be south of -35 declination. In order to allow flexibility in scheduling, we needed a list of about 200 target stars. The list was assembled from three sets of stars:

  • "The Best and Brightest" - 40 stars selected - stars similar to the Sun in mass and temperature, and known to have:
    • an age greater than 3 billion years
    • no stellar companion
      OR
      a companion with an orbit that would allow an earth-like planet
  • "The Nearest" - 19 stars selected - the nearest 100 stars regardless of mass and temperature
  • "G Dwarfs" - 143 stars selected - stars similar to the Sun in mass and temperature, but with no information on age or stellar companions.

Note: the phrase "Best and Brightest" does not refer to the actual brightness of the star.

As an experiment, seven stars were added to the list because they would be in the geosynchronous satellite belt when observed from the Northern Hemisphere telescopes. (These stars have a declination of approximately -7 degrees.) It was hoped that by observing them from Parkes, the satellites would be in a different position relative to these stars and thus the level of interference would be reduced.

 

The Parkes Star List

Target stars were assigned an internal "star number" for use in the Project Phoenix databases. Stars for the Parkes observations were assigned numbers in the range from 3001 through 3209. Where available, the Henry Draper (HD) catalogue number is listed in the CAT# column. Right Ascension and Declination are for the epoch J2000. The spectral type (SPECTYPE) indicates the mass and luminosity of the star. (The Sun is a G2V star.) A + after the spectral type indicates a binary system. If the spectral type of the companion is known, it is listed after the +. The distance is given in light years. The REMARKS column contains alternate catalog names, usually from the Gliese (GL) or Wolf (Wo) catalogues.

Note: Most of these stars are not visible to the unaided eye. One exception is star 3025, Alpha Centauri.
