IOTA/ME members was participated in two Meetings in USA and Germany

36th European Symposium on Occultation Projects (ESOP) was held in Freiberg, Germany since September 15th -19th 2017. Two members of IOTA/ME; Fatemeh Montazeri Najafabadi and Zeinab Sadat Lesani was participate in this symposium and has presentation as a virtual conferencing. Miss Montazeri has lectured about" Simulation of Asteroid's rotation" about 15 minutes. Also Miss Lesani has lectured about" Introducing a new mobile application for submit and timing (made in IOTA/ME)" about 15 minutes, too.
Also Ms. Lesani had a same presentation (before ESOP) at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the International Occultation and Timing Association. It was held in USA since September 9&10, 2017.

A new mobile application for submit and timing (Made in IOTA/ME)

“SKYTIMING” is an accurate timing application (the desired accuracy is 0.01 seconds) for visual observation. It is always available and standalone. Moreover, it eliminates problems of other methods and has an easy access, good accuracy by using GPS for timing and the ability to perform all the steps by itself.
The developer of this application is Zeinab Sadat Lesani "permanent member of IOTA/ME".

You can download this application from http://www.iota-me.com/skytiming.html since 29 September 2017!
This is the first version of this application and it will be developed in next versions.

Publication of IOTA/ME members' paper in NEW ASTRONOMY JOURNAL

Publication of IOTA/ME members' paper in NEW ASTRONOMY JOURNAL

A new paper with title “First light curve analysis of the high-amplitude Delta Scuti star GSC 4552–1498” has been recently accepted and published in the ISI journal New Astronomy. The Authors are “S. J. Jafarzadeh” and “A. Poro”.

In this paper, a HADS variable star is observed at three filter in Alborz observatory in Karaj. By analyzing its light curves, a new ephemeris and oscillation modes were presented. Furthermore, some of the star’s physical parameters including its mass, radius and luminosity were calculated and Two color diagram of different phases of the star were depicted.
