Minkowski's object
  بر‌آخت ِ مینکوفسکی   
barâxt-e Minkowski

Fr.: objet de Minkowski   

A peculiar blue object near the → elliptical galaxy NGC 541 in the → galaxy cluster Abell 194.

  ۱، ۲، ۳، ۴، ۵، ۶) بر‌آخت؛ ۷) کندار   
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) barâxt; 7) kondâr

Fr.: objet   

1) General: Anything that is visible or tangible.
2) Physics: A collection of masses, taken to be one.
3) Optics: The collection of points that acts as a source of light rays for an optical system.
4) Astro.: A general designation for material bodies studied in this science.
5) Math.: Anything that could be formally defined, and with which one may do deductive reasoning and mathematical proofs. → mathematical object
6) Computer science: A free standing chunk of code that defines the properties of some thing.
7) Grammar: In English grammar, a noun, noun phrase, or pronoun that is affected by the action of a verb (a direct object or an indirect object) or that completes the meaning of a preposition (the object of a preposition).

From M.L. objectum "thing thrown down or put before" (the mind or sight), neutral of objectus, p.p. of obicere "to present, oppose, cast in the way of," from ob "against" + jacere "to throw," from PIE base *ye- "to do" (cf. Gk. iemi, ienai "to send, throw," Hitt. ijami "I make").

Barâxt "thing drawn against, before" from bar- + âxt. The prefix bar- "on; upon; against; before; at; in," from Mid.Pers. abar, O.Pers. upariy "above; over, upon, according to," Av. upairi "above, over" (upairi.zəma- "located above the earth"), cf. Gk. hyper- "over, above," L. super-, O.H.G. ubir "over;" PIE base *uper "over".
The second component âxt, contraction of âxté, p.p. of âxtan, variants âhixtan, âhiz- "to draw (a sword)," âhanjidan "to draw up, pull, extract," Mid.Pers. âhixtan, âhanjitan "to draw out, pull up, extract," Av. θanj- "to draw, pull, drive;" Proto-Iranian *θanj-.
Kondâr, literally "action receiver," from kon- present stem of kardan "to do, make," → -or, used as action noun (like xor, xâb, foruš), + dâr agent noun from dâštan "to receive" (Dehxodâ), originally "to have, hold, possess," → property.

Sakurai's Object (V4334 Sgr)
  بر‌آخت ِ سکورایی   
barâxt-e Sakurai

Fr.: objet de Sakurai   

A → post-asymptotic giant branch star that in 1995 underwent sudden re-brightening due to a → helium shell flash, or → very late thermal pulse (VLTP), before embarking on a → white dwarf cooling track. Such an outburst is very rare, and in this case it is the first seen in modern times. Stellar outbursts observed in 1670 (nova CK Vul) and 1918 (nova V605 Aql) may have been caused by the same phenomenon. Since 1995, Sakurai's Object has undergone observable changes on time-scales of weeks to months. Several phases of dust production followed the outburst, with a deep optical minimum beginning in early 1999, such that any changes in the central star have since been inferred from radio and infrared observations. Subsequent observations and modeling have revealed much about the dust shell formation and the outer regions of the ejecta. This object is also the central star of an extended very faint planetary nebula (→ CSPN), confirming that the latest large mass ejection during the planetary nebula phase occurred several thousands years ago (see, e.g. H. L. Worters et al. 2009, MNRAS 393, 108 and references therein).

Named after Yukio Sakurai, a Japanese amateur astronomer, who serendipitously discovered it on February 20, 1996, when searching for comets; → object.
