The Pan-STARRS1 Surveys
Pan-STARRS1 has carried out a set of distinct synoptic imaging sky surveys including the $3\pi$ Steradian Survey and the Medium Deep Survey in 5 bands ($grizy_{P1}$). The mean 5$\sigma$ point source
A Three-Dimensional Map of Milky-Way Dust
We present a three-dimensional map of interstellar dust reddening, covering three-quarters of the sky out to a distance of several kiloparsecs, based on Pan-STARRS 1 and 2MASS photometry. The map
A model of the 8-25 micron point source infrared sky
We present a detailed model for the IR point-source sky that comprises geometrically and physically realistic representations of the Galactic disk, bulge, stellar halo, spiral arms (including the
Galactic reddening in 3D from stellar photometry – an improved map
We present a new 3D map of interstellar dust reddening, covering three quarters of the sky (declinations of δ ≳ −30°) out to a distance of several kiloparsecs. The map is based on high-quality
The Pan-STARRS1 survey is collecting multi-epoch, multi-color observations of the sky north of declination –30° to unprecedented depths. These data are being photometrically and astrometrically
A Filter for Deep Near-Infrared Imaging
The K passband (central wavelength 2.2 microns, FWHM 0.4 micron) is the longest wavelength standard near-IR passband through which deep ground-based imaging is possible. Thermal emission from
A brief visit from a red and extremely elongated interstellar asteroid
Observations and analysis of the object 1I/2017 U1 (‘Oumuamua) that demonstrate its extrasolar trajectory, and that enable comparisons to be made between material from another planetary system and from the authors' own, reveal it to be asteroidal with no hint of cometary activity despite an approach within 0.25 astronomical units of the Sun.
The Pan-STARRS1 Database and Data Products
This paper describes the organization of the database and the catalog data products from the Pan-STARRS1 $3\pi$ Steradian Survey. The catalog data products are available in the form of an SQL-based
The Extremely Red, Young L Dwarf PSO J318.5338-22.8603: A Free-floating Planetary-mass Analog to Directly Imaged Young Gas-giant Planets
We have discovered using Pan-STARRS1 an extremely red late-L dwarf, which has (J – K){sub MKO} = 2.78 and (J – K){sub 2MASS} = 2.84, making it the reddest known field dwarf and second only to 2MASS
A kilonova as the electromagnetic counterpart to a gravitational-wave source
Observations and physical modelling of a rapidly fading electromagnetic transient in the galaxy NGC 4993, which is spatially coincident with GW170817, indicate that neutron-star mergers produce gravitational waves and radioactively powered kilonovae, and are a nucleosynthetic source of the r-process elements.
