We give it this moniker because of its seeming isolation as a bright star in our southern sky.

But, as we shall see in just a moment, Fomalhaut is not quite as lonely as the name suggests. Fomalhaut is about 25 light years away and is twice the size of our own Sun and some 17 times as bright. The Sun has a toasty surface temperature of around 10, degrees Fahrenheit but Fomalhaut is a much warmer 15, degrees Fahrenheit. But there is an important caveat to add here: hot, massive stars live fast and die young and since Fomalhaut has twice the mass of our Sun its total life expectancy is figured to only be about a billion years or so.
We now know that Fomalhaut has a couple of other stellar companions. One is an orange-colored dwarf star Fomalhaut B about 1 light year away from the primary and the other is a red dwarf star Fomalhaut C , the most common type of star in the universe, located some 2. These are very wide separations for multiple star systems and it made things a bit tough for astronomers to get the data they needed to confirm that the stars are indeed gravitationally connected with each other. Designated Fomalhaut b astronomers use lower case letters for planet designations and upper case letters for the parent star this alien exoplanet became the first ever world outside our own solar system to be imaged directly by photographic means.
The planet is still shrouded in dust and may be as massive as our own Neptune or it could contain three times the mass of Jupiter. It's too cold and dangerous. It's just that I was so very lonely back there all by myself.

I will stay and be your friend for always. We can talk and play together, and you will never be lonely again! I would like that a lot , Marcie! But it's going to be high tide soon, so we had better hurry up if we want to get home! So together, Marcie and Stanley moved along toward the ocean's bottom, to where the swirling waters of the tide could carry them closer to shore. Goodnight Stars! About the Author: Marjorie Alcorn of Janesville, Wisconsin achieved two years of college towards her degree in elementary education before she married and devoted the next five years of her life to being a full-time wife and mom.
Finding herself suddenly single and thrust back into the traditional workplace at the age of 30, she's gone back to working full time in order to care for her three little snugglers, 5 year Nick, 3 year old Emily and 1 year old Nathan. Her spare moments, the precious few there are left of them, anyway , are devoted to studying medical transcription. Writing children's stories has long held a special place in Marjorie's heart. Both literate and computer savvy, Marjorie may be the ideal candidate for telecommuting. She tells us she dreams of that one special job which might allow her to work from home.

The Lonely Star
In a sheltered pool of water, amidst the rocks at the ocean's edge, there lived a little starfish named Stanley. The water was always warm and salty where Stanley lived, and his home made him very happy. During the day, Stanley played in sand that glittered and sparkled in the warm sunshine.
At night, after the sun slipped over the horizon, Stanley would snuggle up next to his favorite rock and fall fast asleep. The new little starfish giggled, "My name is Marcie. Fall from the sky?? A massive collision between white dwarf and neutron stars may explain the creation of transient supernovae, explosions that tend to occur far away from host galaxies.
Lonely Star: The Prestige Sessions
Previous studies had shown that calcium comprised up to half of the material thrown off in such explosions compared to only a tiny fraction in normal supernovae. This means that these curious events may actually be the dominant producers of calcium in our universe. For example there could be very faint dwarf galaxies there, explaining the weird locations. We present observations, going just about as faint as you can go, to show there is in fact nothing at the location of these transients—so the question becomes, how did they get there?
Lonely Stars In Open Skies (Original Mix) by Maher Daniel, Jon Charnis on Beatport
Calcium-rich transients observed to date can be seen tens of thousands of parsecs away from any potential host galaxy, with a third of these events at least 65 thousand light years from a potential host galaxy. For the new study, published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society , researchers used the Very Large Telescope in Chile and Hubble Space Telescope observations of the nearest examples of these calcium-rich transients to attempt to detect anything left behind or in the surrounding area of the explosion. The deep observation allowed them to rule out the presence of faint dwarf galaxies or globular star clusters at the locations of these nearest examples.
Furthermore, an explanation for core-collapse supernovae, which calcium-rich transients resemble, although fainter, is the collapse of a massive star in a binary system where material is stripped from the massive star undergoing collapse. The researchers found no evidence for a surviving binary companion or other massive stars in the vicinity, allowing them to reject massive stars as the progenitors of calcium rich transients. The researchers then compared their data to what is known about short-duration gamma ray bursts SGRBs.
