Unless otherwise stated, stellar luminosities are total (bolometric) luminosities that include ultraviolet and infrared radiation.Star descriptions represent the state of knowledge at the time of writing, and are not updated unless brought to special attention. Undated descriptions were written prior to January 26, 2007.
On February 7, the Marine Corps 1st Light Anti-aircraft Missile Battalion was ordered to protect the airfield there.To learn more about stars, constellations, and astronomy go to: American Association of Variable Star Observers The Astronomical Society of the Pacific Astronomy Picture of the Day Chandra X-ray Observatory The Constellations and their Stars Hubble Space Telescope MOST precision photometry satellite Munich Astro Archiv Constellation Pages The Mythology of the Constellations The Night Sky Atlas Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) Sol UCSD Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences, Astronomy and Education Outreach Stereo, studying the Sun in 3D.Universe Today-Space news from around the Internet, updated every weekday.Stars known principally by Flamsteed number are listed in the sixth table.The last table then arranges the stars by Greek letter name within their parent constellations, which are linked to labelled photographs that show the stars' locations.Stellar distances are in light years, where the light year is the distance light travels in one year, equal to 63,270 AU (and 0.3066 parsecs, where the parsec equals 206,265 AU, 3.2616 light years).
Unless a star is too far away, or is determined by other more precise means, its distance is taken from the Hipparcos parallax catalogue, using the second reduction after July 1, 2009, for all first magnitude stars, or where indicated in the description of the star.
The VC quickly withdrew in the same direction from which they had launched their attack.
Although no enemy was confirmed killed by the Marines, blood trails leading away from the airfield were found the following morning.
More VC attacks led to more airstrikes against North Vietnam.
On March 7, the Joint Chiefs of Staff ordered the 9th MEB, which had been off the coast of Da Nang, to come ashore to further protect the airfield. Initially, the Marine intervention was to be limited.
In July, an 85-man VC group reinforced by a 13-man North Vietnamese sapper unit launched a ground and mortar attack on the air base from the area to the south.
