Here is a link to a 4K video as it’s too long to post on Instagram https://youtu.be/9GxZesAq53o

This is my first capture of the the Hubble Space Telescope crossing in front of the Moon!

The transit was across the Waxing Gibbous Moon (52.3%) and Hubble also crossed directly between Lunar X and Lunar V which are both present near the terminator on the Lunar surface.

Lunar X and Lunar V can appear a few times a year and in various places around the world when the Earth is in the right position to view ideal Sunlight on the Moon.

The phenomenon occurs when the Moon is near First Quarter phase, Lunar X lasts about 4 hours while Lunar V stays visible a bit longer after Lunar X fades away.

The single image is comprised of approximately 140 frames composited to one image showing the transit path of the Hubble Space Telescope.

Footage was captured using Canon Equipment

Canon EOS-1D X Mark II
Canon 800 mm L IS USM
Canon 400 mm L IS USM

It's the dim star, not the bright one, near the center of NGC 3132 that created this odd but beautiful planetary nebula. Nicknamed the Eight-Burst Nebula and the Southern Ring Nebula, the glowing gas originated in the outer layers of a star like our Sun. In this reprocessed color picture, the hot purplish pool of light seen surrounding this binary system is energized by the hot surface of the faint star. Although photographed to explore unusual symmetries, it's the asymmetries that help make this planetary nebula so intriguing. Neither the unusual shape of the surrounding cooler shell nor the structure and placements of the cool filamentary dust lanes running across NGC 3132 are well understood.

Working hard in the studio to get ready for my upcoming Kansas shows. I will be at the Prairie village Art Show near Kansas City June 1-3, and the Smoky Hill River Festival in Salina June 8-10. http://prairievillageshops.com/events/2018-prairie-village-art-show/ http://www.riverfestival.com/ #glasspendant #astronomy #space #galaxy #nebula #boro #meditation #startrek #starwars #scifi #ericmortartglass #nasa #hubblespacetelescope #glassofig #marblecollector #spaceglass #orb #nova #blackhole #gravstar #superluminova #howtheuniverseworks #pocketgalaxy #opalgalaxy #neildegrassetyson #prairievillageartshow #smokyhillriverfestival

NASA/ESA’s Hubble Heritage Team capture of the Horsehead Nebula, 2013. Spectacular, right? Depending upon your global position at whatever time, this Orion lovely is perpetually floating around in the sky above you. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there. You just need the proper technology. Now, apply that idea to things that seem "supernatural" in this world, and you're headed toward the next step in evolution. P.S. The Horsehead is 1500 light years away, give or take. This means that, even at the speed of light it would take far too long to get there, in business class. #nasa #esa #hubble #hubblespacetelescope #majesty #awe #incomprehensible #far_out #orion #horsehead #stellar #stars #gasanddust #nebula #object #real #space

Another pendant in progress. This one is still very hot so the planet should be more blues and greens when it cools.

Resembling a wizard’s staff set aglow, NGC 1032 cleaves the quiet darkness of space in two in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. NGC 1032 is located about a hundred million light-years away in the constellation Cetus (the Sea Monster). Although beautiful, this image perhaps does not do justice to the galaxy’s true aesthetic appeal: NGC 1032 is actually a spectacular spiral galaxy, but from Earth, the galaxy’s vast disk of gas, dust and stars is seen nearly edge-on.

Dual #agn are within a few 100 pc of each other and are ideal laboratories for studying the environments around them. Check out these sweet #hubblespacetelescope images. What's your favorite?

Can you find your neighborhood in there? Nope! This is a photo of 500 million stars in another galaxy called Andromeda. (We are located in the Milky Way galaxy.) Pretty intense, eh? Remember, the sun is a star. So, essentially, this is 500 million 'suns'!!!😁

Hubble Space Telescope's image of Eagle Nebula - "The Pillars Of Creation".This vast star-forming region,6500 ly away from Home has made my day worthy.
