Originally just a test shot with my 50mm lens to see where Comet 46p/Wirtanen was located before I increased the zoom. After editing, I actually really like this one, with the Pleiades at the top left and the Comet at the bottom. ——————— Single 60s exposure with Canon 550d with 50mm lens on Star Adventurer.

Okay, who has the best view for the Geminids right now? 🔭💫 Not counting @nasa because ... well, look at it!! 😍 If you want more details about the Geminids or the Christmas Comet, check out our guide on the GeekMom site (link in bio). Seriously, NASA. Stop showing off. 😉
Mars orbiter spies InSight lander from space for the first time. NASA's InSight lander may have touched down on the surface of Mars, snapped a couple of selfies and broken a power record, but there remains plenty to learn about the interplanetary robot's immediate surroundings. Mission scientists have gained another fresh perspective on the lander's new home, courtesy of intriguing aerial images snapped by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). InSight, as seen from the Martian skies in pictures captured by the MRO's HiRISE camera on December 6 and 11, presents as a bright teal marking on Elysium Planitia, the 81-mile-long (130-km) lava plain chosen as its landing site. #Space #SpaceX #Mars #InSight #Lander #NASA #Interplanetary #CSA #ESA #ROSCOSMOS #Follow #Like #Astrology #Astronomy #Astrophysics #AstroIntel
Nenhum ser humano na superfície da Terra consegue ver a Lua como nesse vídeo produzido pela sonda LRO. Como a Lua está sincronizada gravitacionalmente com a Terra, ela só nos mostra uma única face deixando sua face oposta permanentemente oculta. . No human being on the Earth’s surface has ever seen the Moon like in this video produced by LRO probe. As the Moon is tidally locked to the Earth, it shows us only one face, leting the oposite face permanently oculted. .

Wow, this pizza is really unappetizing and barely food (note the "imitation mozzarella" listed) and I can't believe I actually like them. Somehow, they taste amazing to me despite being really greasy. ~FACT~ Neptune has a very thin collection of rings likely made up of ice particles mixed with dust grains and possibly coated with a carbon-based substance. https://space-facts.com/neptune/
Parker’ın WISPR adlı kamerasından çekilen fotoğraf, Güneş yüzeyinden sadece 25 milyon kilometre uzaklıktan çekildi. Böyle söyleyince insana çok büyük bir mesafeymiş gibi gelse de, uzayın boyutlarını düşündüğümüz zaman hiç de uzakta sayılmaz. Zaten uzay aracı ile Güneş arasında 25 milyon kilometre olmasına rağmen araç bu fotoğrafı, Güneş’in haresinin içinden çekti. Fotoğrafta, Güneş’te gerçekleşen jet akışı açıkça gözüküyor. Ortadaki parlak nokta, sistemimizin devasa gaz gezegeni Jüpiter. Siyah noktalar ise arkaplan düzeltme algoritmasının eserleri.🌘🔭 . . . .

The night skies in western #Manitoba were filled with the bright streaks of meteor trails early Friday morning, part of December’s annual #Geminid meteor shower. In the span of a few hours I counted several dozen in the skies south of Kemnay. Unfortunately most seemed to evade my lens. Got a short one though in the southern sky. . . . #photography #sky #nightsky #nightphotography #stars #astronomy #longexposure #naturephotography #prairies #brandon #meteorshower

it's just another night and i'm staring at the moon; i saw a shooting star and thought of you. i can see the stars from here; i wonder, do you see them too? . i thought you were my fairytale; a dream when i'm not sleeping. a wish upon a star that's coming true. i'm only left with used to bes and once upon a song. now i know that you're not my fairytale, and dreams were meant for sleeping, and wishes on a star just don't come true. . we crossed each other's path for a reason, and i didn't regret any of it. it was a rollercoaster ride. it taught me lessons; love, sacrifice, patience, selflessness, and loyalty; yet heartbreak, being left, and making a difficult decision to put aside my feeling of responsibility to love/help and learn to love myself again and make myself a priority. 💓✨ . 📷: @infinitalavita . . #spilledthoughts #spilledink #selflove #selfcare #selfreminder #stargazing #astronomy #constellation

Excerpt from "Primordial", a single-channel 2 minute video loop - installation, which consists of 750 unique microscopic canvases. Each canvas was hand-painted with multitudes of acrylic dyes and then photographed under the microscope.“Primordial” uses the digitally-altered sound of the Vela Pulsar; a highly-magnetized neutron star that emits regular pulses of radio waves and other electromagnetic radiation with a period of 89 milliseconds. The sound design in the video corresponds to the radio-waves emitted by this particular pulsar. #videoart #biennale #universe #nebula #acrylicpainting #experimental #astronomy #microscope #microcosm #macrocosm #journey #lightspeed #electromagnetism #pulsar #space #galaxy #cosmic #alteredstates #psychedelic #instavideo #experimentalart

【看遼闊的星空 繁星編織的夢】  每一晚,全人類頭上都頂著同樣恆河沙數的繁星,只是對映地上星羅棋布的萬家燈火與燈紅酒綠,讓大家日漸對星空不以為然。我們偶爾會對這片夜幕感興趣的,或許只有中秋吃月餅賞月、萬千流星雨抵港、太空人涉足宇宙及猜想梵高如何描繪《星夜》之時。「這樣美麗的星空,我們一直無條件擁有,卻少有人注視到它的美好,不是太可惜嗎?」90後天文發燒友徐世亨 @saihang_photography ,眼裡凝望著的不只有遼闊的星空,還有繁星連成燦爛的夢。  光年之外  這晚觀星勝地 #西貢大坳門 縱然高積雲滿佈,仍能從微散的雲隙中看到 #M42獵戶座大星雲#M45七姐妹星團#五車二#御夫座主星 )及 #畢宿五#金牛座主星 )等等的冬季星斗與星團。「其實肉眼就是最好的『望遠鏡』,當然還得有好天氣的配合。香港多雲、陰天、下雨的日子較好日子多,觀星活動通常靠即興,令我更珍惜每次觀星的機會。」世亨抬頭仰望星空一會,開始指出不同的星座、星團與天體,甚至指劃出行星的軌跡。「觀星關乎閱讀宇宙的歷史。每顆星星的亮光都是以光速傳到地球及我們的眼睛,例如一顆距離我們1000光年遠的星星若此刻在宇宙爆炸,我們要待1000年後才會見到它爆炸的模樣。」  星際宇宙觀  相比宇宙,人的一生光速般短暫,這是世亨從探究浩瀚宇宙中解讀而出的真理。「星空的宇宙觀亦建構出我的人生觀:一個人觀星時會有種被世界包圍的感覺,意識到身為人類的渺小,教我懂得放下追逐與執著,珍惜已擁有的事物,聽起來有點佛學;但我們渺小卻富有思考性的存在,在認知範圍的宇宙中又見彌足珍貴,故此應珍惜及善用我們的天賦,去尋找真正的自我。」  架起雙筒望遠鏡及反射式天文望遠鏡,左調右度後別過頭來的世亨,示意可嘗試從望遠鏡的角度,探索更深層的宇宙。「單獨看星,可以與星空及自己內心進行一場對話;而一群人看星時,整個宇宙就是大家共同擁有,當下的星空無形連繫著每個人的喜悅。有一次參與盲人觀星傷健營,向來自不同背景的人解說星空、一同觀星。由天文講到歷史、哲學及現今社會,討論範疇十分廣闊而有趣,滿足感仍猶存至今!」  「數到最難忘的一次觀星,是在萬宜水庫的東壩看過香港最美的星空。在香港走到哪都免不了光害或人害,難得看到滿天繁星甚是驚喜。那是交大學論文的前一晚,理應在宿舍埋頭苦幹至通宵達旦,但當晚的夜空異常清澈,是少有的觀星絕佳天氣!天文好友們紛紛動身起行,內心掙扎的我最終選擇從屯門老遠走入西貢觀星,整條壩只有我們一行五人及數以千計的星,寧靜而少光害,非常深刻感動!」犧牲了長篇論文,換來了漫天星辰,就像他常掛心房的座右銘:「人生沒有絕對,只有相對。」  地球人的義務  「很多人誤解占星與天文學的關係。懂得看十二星座的座標,並不等同於通曉星座命理及運程預測,這是兩樣截然不同的東西;多年來人們亦爭拗外星生物是否存在。我相信有的,但認為他們是存在於第二個時空,我們永遠都相遇不了。」謬誤與爭辯以外,他最為惋惜人類忽略了這片從小到大也存在左右的美麗星空,一股普及天文的使命感漸漸萌芽而生。  「十年前因緣際會接觸到母校歷史悠久的天文學會,得到多位師兄的啟蒙,令我與星空結緣。及後身兼天文學會的成員及主席,不斷認識及鞏固到天文知識,漸漸開始有一種寄望:讓更多人學懂欣賞夜空的美,進一步讀懂潛藏內心的宇宙觀及人生觀。」如同宇宙大爆發一樣,經多年蘊釀及籌備,今年大學畢業的他決定勇於追夢,與數位志同道合的夥伴創辦興趣教育組織HobbyHK,以星空分享自己最純粹的熱情和樂趣,同時令參與者重拾對大自然的關愛。透過舉辦室內外觀星活動及課程,將天文知識重新推廣,連結大眾,服務社會。與其說世亨是在追夢,更是在實踐「地球人的義務」:「現代觀星的角色,更像是一種思考模式的訓練,包括想像力、價值觀及多角度思維。」  (圖三)攝於2012年的 #金星凌日 。相片中可見金星正從太陽的邊端橫越到另一端,下一次再看到此天文奇景要100年以後。   (圖四)攝於美國 #死亡谷 的星河。  (圖五)攝於 #東壩 的拱極星流跡。在香港能夠觀賞到滿天繁星,好比在國外遇見銀河的悸動。  興趣教育組織HOBBYHK: www.hobbyhk.org FB: bit.ly/2zzSvsi  文:文西 攝:Ho Ka Wai  原文:https://bit.ly/2ROhK1d ——————————— #文西後記 : 和每位受訪者進行訪談都像是上一課關於生命的課堂。感覺自己不但在大自然中很渺小,在社會中更渺小😂但渺小得快樂,尤其聽寫別人的故事,是一件相當幸福的事。  以前有位老師對不擅辭令的我說:「世上並不需要所有人都侃侃而談,而你是個擅於聆聽別人的孩子。」有力的安慰,變成今日執筆發問的動力。  雖然說話比以前進步了,但內裡的墨水仍有待研磨。今次的訪問稿有少許插曲,多謝世亨和他的教育組織HobbyHK的體諒,不少的細節位和專有名詞多得他們的審閱以作出修正,也讓自己在文字、審稿及人物專訪上得著更多。所幸平日做好事多(磨),關關難過關關過,剛好體會到今天杜耀明教授一個專訪裡所說的:做記者也好,做人也好,謹記真誠。

Pulkovo Observatory. Небольшой этюд Пулковской обсерватории осенью 2018 года. Моя маленькая мечта сбылась, мне довелось прогуляться возле этих прекрасных сооружений и даже немножко порисовать). Созвездия хороших людей связано с этим местом, когда-то там работал на полставки Борис Натанович Стругацкий. Сейчас на территории Пулковских высот сеют сорняки жилищных построек, световыми паразитами хотят погубить парковую зону вокруг обсерватории, тем самым ставя под угрозу исследования, которые являются частью многовекового наследия Главной астрономической обсерватории РАН.

Your Daily Inspiration . . Trapped in Fear . This reveals that it's actually your own fear that has you immobilized and trapped - preventing you from making decisions or choices. *You* are the one who's holding yourself prisoner (or hostage); and in order to continue your journey, you must first face your fears so that new people and conditions can manifest. Many individuals choose to stay in this place because they can't see the road ahead, they feel a misguided sense of safety there, or they're afraid of starting something new. But staying will only add to your levels of stress and anxiety and create adverse effects in your physical body. . Seek out wise counsel for assistance. You don't have to do this alone, but know that you possess all of the tools that you need to free yourself - you're forgetting how strong you really are! This period will end when you use your mind to cut through the limitations caused by your emotions. . . Have a beautiful day! .

От автора @archifridrix : Видите лошадь? Нет? А она есть! Туманность Конская Голова, также известная как "Голова Лошади" — тёмная туманность в созвездии Ориона. Приблизительно 3,5 световых года в диаметре и расположена южнее Альнитак, восточной звезды Пояса Ориона, и является частью Облака Ориона — огромного газо-пылевого комплекса звёздообразования, которое окружает расположенную на расстоянии около 1300 световых лет туманность Ориона. Конская Голова — одна из наиболее известных туманностей. Она видна как тёмное пятно в форме конской головы на фоне красного свечения. Это свечение объясняется ионизацией водородных облаков, находящихся за туманностью, под действием излучения от ближайшей яркой звезды (ζ Ориона). Тёмный фон туманности возникает в основном за счёт поглощения света плотным слоем пыли. Яркие пятна в основании туманности Конская Голова — это молодые звёзды, находящиеся в процессе формирования. Впервые туманность была обнаружена в 1888 году на фотографиях Гарвардской обсерватории. @astronomykhv #астрономиявхабаровске #telescopchikru #конскаяголова #туманностьконскаяголова #астрофото #deepsky #космос #звёзды #astrophotography #astronomy #nightsky #nightscape #naberegukhv

#Repost @isro.in ・・・ "The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home. In a cosmic perspective, most human concerns seem insignificant, even petty. And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. In the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries about the Cosmos and our place within it, explorations that are exhilarating to consider. They remind us that humans have evolved to wonder, that understanding is a joy, that knowledge is prerequisite to survival. I believe our future depends on how well we know this Cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky." #astronomia #espaço #universo #cosmos #galaxias #nebulosas #astrofísica #cosmologia #sky #nasa #hubble #ciencia #céu #tempo #science #astronomy #anosluz #gravidade #astronomer #astrophysics #space #cosmos #science #universe #Stars #planets #constellations #hubble #galaxy #astronomy #solarsystem #nightsky
