TRAPPIST-North (TN) is now part of the world list of the International Astronomical Union observatories, as Z53 !
Liège astrophysicists have discovered three planets the size of the Earth around a small star located at 40 light years. These planets could have habitable conditions on their surfaces.
A new study published in the journal Nature confirms the great interest of the planetary system recently discovered by an international team led by astronomers from the University of Liège using the TRAPPIST telescope.
The Hubble Space Telescope observed the TRAPPIST-1 planetary system to catch a rare event: a double transit
We are very happy to show you one of the first image taken with TRAPPIST-North.

It is only a little bit scary but it's here in time for Halloween. A 400-metre-wide asteroid that scientists only spotted three weeks ago is going to shoot past Earth at 35 kilometres a second.
Rings have been discovered by chance around the distant icy asteroid Chariklo which orbits between Saturn and Uranus. A discovery which makes Chariklo a unique object, and which opens up a new area in the study of small bodies in the solar system.
At the end of 2013, telescopes around the world were focused on Ison, a comet that should have been the comet of the decade. TRAPPIST, the telescope at the University of Liège, was among the best placed to observe this new visitor.
