  • Telescopes mounted with polarizers can study the neutral points of the Earths atmosphere, the solar corona, the surface of planets/moons of the Solar System, distant stars, galaxies and nebulae. These examples demonstrate well that polarimetry is a useful technique to gather astronomical information from spatially extended phenomena. There are two enigmatic celestial objects that can also effectively be studied with imaging polarimetry, namely the Kordylewski dust clouds (KDCs) positioned… CONTINUE READING
