✨Arp 148 is the staggering aftermath of an encounter between two galaxies, resulting in a ring-shaped galaxy and a long-tailed companion. The collision between the two parent galaxies produced a shockwave effect that first drew matter into the center and then caused it to propagate outwards in a ring. 🌟The elongated companion perpendicular to the ring suggests that Arp 148 is a unique snapshot of an ongoing collision. Infrared observations reveal a strong obscuration region that appears as a dark dust lane across the nucleus in optical light. Arp 148 is nicknamed Mayall s object and is located in the constellation of Ursa Major, the Great Bear, approximately 500 million light-years away. This interacting pair of galaxies is included in Arp's catalog of peculiar galaxies as number 148.

#HubbleClassic These two images of a huge pillar of star birth demonstrate how observations taken in visible and in infrared light by Hubble reveal dramatically different and complementary views of an object.

The pictures demonstrate one example of the broad wavelength range of the Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) aboard the Hubble telescope, extending from ultraviolet to visible to infrared light.

Composed of gas and dust, the pillar resides in a tempestuous stellar nursery called the Carina Nebula, located 7,500 light-years away in the southern constellation Carina. The pair of images shows that astronomers have a much more complete view of the pillar and its contents when distinct details not seen at visible wavelengths are uncovered in near-infrared light.

The first image, taken in visible light, shows the tip of the 3-light-year-long pillar, bathed in the glow of light from hot, massive stars off the top of the image. Scorching radiation and fast winds (streams of charged particles) from these stars are sculpting the pillar and causing new stars to form within it. Streamers of gas and dust can be seen flowing off the top of the structure.

In the second image, taken in near-infrared light, the dense column and the surrounding greenish-colored gas all but disappear. Only a faint outline of the pillar remains. By penetrating the wall of gas and dust, the infrared vision of WFC3 reveals the infant star that is probably blasting the jet. Part of the jet nearest the star is more prominent in this view. These features can be seen because infrared light, unlike visible light, can pass through the dust.

IC 1805: THE HEART NEBULA
Sprawling across almost 200 light-years, emission nebula IC 1805 is a mix of glowing interstellar gas and dark dust clouds. Derived from its Valentine's-Day-approved shape, its nickname is the Heart Nebula. About 7,500 light-years away in the Perseus spiral arm of our galaxy, stars were born in IC 1805. In fact, near the cosmic heart's center are the massive hot stars of a newborn star cluster also known as Melotte 15, about 1.5 million years young. A little ironically, the Heart Nebula is located in the constellation of the mythical Queen of Aethiopia (Cassiopeia). This deep view of the region around the Heart Nebula spans about two degrees on the sky or about four times the diameter of the Full Moon.

The Planet Venus yesterday evening. The Planet is shown as the phase of a crescent, and will continue to decrease as the days go by.

Repost from @cosmic.rationalist .
"If we lived about 4 billion years later (and if the sun was intact), our night sky would've been filled with amazing visuals of The Milky Way colliding with The Andromeda (as seen in this image). Wouldn't that be spectacular?

However, we wouldn't have complete solar eclipses since the moon would've drifted too far by then to cover the sun completely in the sky.

Who is willing to sacrifice eclipses for those stunning galaxy colliding visuals? I'm in for sure." #astronomy #astrophotography #cosmology #astrophysics #milkyway #night #nightsky #sky #universe #planet #star #space #science #Physics #telescope #solarsystem #quotes #life #BlackHoles #stargaze #stargazing #moon
