Can you make out the witches profile? By starlight this eerie visage shines in the dark, a crooked profile evoking its popular name, the Witch Head Nebula. In fact, this entrancing telescopic portrait gives the impression the witch has fixed her gaze on Orion's bright supergiant star Rigel. Spanning over 50 light-years, the dusty cosmic cloud strongly reflects nearby Rigel's blue light, giving it the characteristic color of a reflection nebula. Cataloged as IC 2118, the Witch Head Nebula is about 1,000 light-years away. #apod

Astronomy Picture of The Day: NGC 4565, Galaksi dari Tepiannya

Apakah galaksi setipis ini? Sepertinya memang begitu. Gambar ini menampilkan galaksi spiral NGC 4565 yang dipotret dari permukaan Bumi. Juga dikenal sebagai Galaksi Jarum karena bentuknya yang mirip jarum bila dilihat dari Bumi, NGC 4565 telah banyak diamati oleh para pengamat langit lewat teleskopnya. Terletak di rasi bintang Coma Berenices, gambar tajam dan penuh warna ini mengungkapkan inti Galaksi Jarum yang menggembung dibandingkan dengan bidang galaksinya yang tipis. Bermacam-macam galaksi lainnya berada di latar belakang galaksi ini, dengan galaksi tetangga NGC 4562 di kiri atas. NGC 4565 sendiri terletak sekitar 40 juta tahun cahaya dan memiliki diameter sekitar 100.000 tahun cahaya. Galaksi ini dapat dengan mudah diamati dengan teleskop kecil. Tertarik untuk mencoba menemukannya?

Here's a video of Jupiter that I shot tonight. You can see a couple cloud bands on the planet. You can also see a couple of moons to the left, Europa and Io. #astro #astronomy #astronomia #astrophotography #astrophotos #APOD #cosmos #galaxy #galaxies #Hubble #longexposure #milkyway #nasa #nightsky #nightimages #nightscape #nightphotography #sky #space  #stars #telescope #universe

Jüpiter'e Yaklaşmak⠀

Jüpiter’e yaklaşmak neye benzerdi? Bunun cevabını bulmaya yardımcı olmak için, 91 amatör astrofotoğrafçıdan oluşan bir takım, Dünya’dan Jüpiter’in 1,000’den fazla fotoğrafını çekti ve sonuçta elde edilen görüntüler sıralanıp dijital olarak birleştirilerek bu hızlandırılmış video oluşturuldu. Bunun sonucunda ortaya çıkan kurgusal yaklaşma sekansı, NASA’nın robotik Juno uzay aracının geçtiğimiz Temmuz’da gezegene ilk kez yaklaştığında gördüklerine benzerlikler taşıyor. Video Jüpiter’in görüntünün merkezinde küçük bir daire olarak belirmesiyle başlıyor. Jüpiter aşağıdan yakınlaştıkça, gezegen daha da büyük görünüyor ve bulut şeritlerinin dönüşü belirgin hale geliyor. Jüpiter’in küçülen Büyük Kırmızı Leke’si dönerken kimi zaman olağandışı faaliyet göstererek iki defa görüntüye giriyor. Dev gezegenin etrafında hareket eden çok sayıda beyaz oval görülebiliyor. Video hayali uzay aracının Jüpiter’in Kuzey Kutbu’nun üzerinden geçmesiyle sona eriyor.⠀

[Saturn's Hexagon]
"The hexagon is just a current of air, and weather features out there that share similarities to this are notoriously turbulent and unstable. A hurricane on #Earth typically lasts a week, but this has been here for decades -- and who knows -- maybe centuries." - Andrew Ingersoll, Cassini Imaging Team -

Is our Galaxy this thin? We believe so. Magnificent spiral galaxy NGC 4565 is viewed edge-on from planet Earth. Also known as the Needle Galaxy for its narrow profile, bright NGC 4565 is a stop on many telescopic tours of the northern sky, in the faint but well-groomed constellation Coma Berenices. This sharp, colorful image reveals the galaxy's bulging central core cut by obscuring dust lanes that lace NGC 4565's thin galactic plane. An assortment of other background galaxies is included in the pretty field of view, with neighboring galaxy NGC 4562 at the upper left. NGC 4565 itself lies about 40 million light-years distant and spans some 100,000 light-years. Easily spotted with small telescopes, sky enthusiasts consider NGC 4565 to be a prominent celestial masterpiece Messier missed.

کهکشان NGC 4565 از لبه
امتیاز تصویر: Lóránd Fényes

آیا کهکشان ما به همین اندازه نازک است؟ ما این گونه فکر می کنیم. کهکشان NGC 4565 که با نام کهکشان سوزن هم شناخته می شود از دید ناظر زمینی از لبه دیده می شود. این کهکشان در صورت فلکی گیسو قرار دارد. در این تصویر رنگارنگ خطوط تیره گرد و غبار در صفحه کهکشان دیده می شود. کهکشان NGC 4565 در فاصله حدود ۴۰ میلیون سال نوری از ما قرار دارد و قطر آن ۱۰۰۰۰۰ سال نوری است. این کهکشان را می توان با یک تلسکوپ کوچک دید.

Though she may appear small, she is but mighty. The Andromeda Galaxy (M31) in the middle of the right third of the frame. She contains 3 trillion stars and measures 220,000 light years across. Although located 2.5 million light years away, M31 is expected to collide with our galaxy in 4.5 billion years #spaceiscool #wanderlust #twanight #natgeospace #vsco #nasa #nightphotography #neverstopexploring #longexposure #astrophotography #astronomy #apod #andromeda #newmexicotrue #newmexico #m31 #nikon #skyporn

Well, it's been a while. And yes, this is Saturn. the real one. Many details of Saturn appear clearly in infrared light. You might see the cloud on planet's North pole. it almost looks like a figurine gently placed on a table to take a photo but no - Sunlight, space and all completely real. Why is this interesting? Well, mostly because it is New way of looking at it with latest photos.

Well off the beaten track in the Manawatu-Wanganui district, North Island New Zealand is the beautiful, but rarely visited Mangatiti Falls.
