The "galactic eclipse" is a hoax.

@maya I migrated your question to the appropriate site. Please see the migration link above and setup an account on Space Exploration if you wish to continue to track your question. I wish you the best in your dreams to become an astronaut!

@gerrit That's only if the user meant astronaut and not astronomer.

comment Why are so many sun-like stars found in multiple systems? How do planets form in such a situation?
To reinforce zibadawa's point, consider that even our solar system has Jupiter, which although much smaller than the Sun is still a significant secondary mass concentration in the solar system.

maya, your post has a lot of questions in it but I think it has potential. One problem is you do not make it clear whether you want to be an astronaut (one who travels to space) or an astronomer (one who studies space, usually from Earth). NASA does employ both. If you could clarify which you would like to be, that would help refine your question. If you are interested in both, please make them separate questions.

I have a sneaking suspicion that the color is infrared.

comment Before Voyager 2, what were the highest quality photos of Uranus and Neptune?
Check out these Google Books search results. Some of them have some pictures--I don't know if they were the highest quality obtainable, but it gives you an idea of the range they were working with.

comment Shall we say now that Pluto is “larger than Mercury” ?
@JonathanDunn No, because it is compositionally different than terrestrial planets.

comment How will the Breakthrough Initiatives affect other astronomy observations?
I would imagine that many observatories are underutilized and the funding would allow for increased utilization.

comment Real images (not “artist concept”) by NASA
@ispiro When I googled I looked specifically for "[mission/object name] photo database", for example "New Horizons photo database" or "Mars photo database".

Honestly, I just used google. You can also try googling with "site:nasa.gov" in your search query to get more refined results.

comment Does the Sun move?
This question is not a perfect duplicate of the linked question, but the answer lies either in the linked question or in What is in the center of the universe? that Tildal linked to.

comment Accidental or deliberate?
I don't know if the apparent size of the Sun and the Moon have anything to do with this, but this study claimed to have found that total solar eclipses have a positive effect on the microbes studied.

comment Stellar mass database
Sol Station has stellar mass info as well as distance. Look especially under the "Stars within 100 ly" section. Is this to the level of precision you need?

comment What is the next planned mission that can discover life on another planet?
I cannot find any reference to InSight being used for this purpose, though it seems a good candidate. The ExoMars rover will do some shallow digging for this purpose.

comment Stellar mass database
How far out do you need to consider? 50 ly? 100? 1000?

comment Does a week represent something in astronomy?
Sure, I suppose it is on topic since it relates to the planets.
