High in tonight's sky, Comet 46P/Wirtanen (a.k.a. The Christmas Comet). You can see the Pleiades in the lower right. This is a combination of ten 3.2 sec images to minimize star trails, iso6400 at 150mm. Sony a7r3, Sigma 150-600. #comet #wirtanen #christmascomet #pleiades #astrophotography #scwx #naturephotography #sonyalpha #sonyphotography #nakedplanet #insta_carolina #igdaily #lowcountry #astrophoto #universetoday #nightphotography #nightsky #stargazing #onlyinsouthcarolina #littleriversc #instadaily #instagram #grandstrand #discover_sc #sigmaphoto
It's been quite some time since I last pointed my camera at our planet's faithful companion. Took a moment while I was setting up this evening to take some snaps of our moon while I waited on it to get dark enough to polar align. My PC is currently working over my imaging session of comet Wirtanen, pics of that to come tomorrow. #moon #moonlight #nightsky #moonshot #astronomy #astrophotography #telescope #solarsystem #stargazing #planets #space #outerspace

Comet 46P/Wirtanen was a vid of a dud and not nearly as bright as hyped. It is the green smudge in the left middle. #comet #nightsky #sky_captures #captures_scenic #astrophotography #nightphotography
The largest example of cohesion between global governments is the ISS. As the most expensive thing ever built in human history at a whopping total of over $150 billion, it has been a pioneer in the future of mankind's place in space. Scheduled to be either sold to a private agency or to be de-orbited into the ocean, the ISS began construction in 1998, with the last piece officially finishing it in 2011. This year marked the 20 year anniversary of the space station. It orbits at a mind boggling speed of 4.76 miles/second, completing one orbit around Earth every 90 or so minutes. Parts will be continued to be added to the ISS throughout 2019, and it is expected to last until 2028, however there's a possibility it will no longer be owned governmentally by 2024. It has been occupied by humans continuously for over 18 years. Credit: NASA . . .

Last night I imaged another barred spiral galaxy (NGC 2903) in the Constellation of Leo. This is an LRGB color image made from about 3 hours of broadband red, green, and blue filter data, and about 2 hours of luminance data. Taken at the @la.astronomical.society dark sky site.

Los anillos de Saturno son un sistema de 4 anillos planetarios que rodean a ese planeta y fueron observados por primera vez en julio de 1610 por Galileo Galilei. En parte porque las imágenes que daba el recién inventado telescopio eran de mala calidad para aquel entonces, y en parte porque hacía solo unos meses que había descubierto los cuatro mayores satélites de Júpiter, pensó inicialmente que las estructuras borrosas, parecidas a orejas, que había visto, eran dos satélites próximos a Saturno. Pronto cambió de opinión. Aquellos "extraños apéndices" no variaban su posición respecto a Saturno de una noche a la siguiente y, además, desaparecieron en 1612. Sucedió que los anillos, compuestos por hidrógeno, helio y sulfuro, habían quedado orientados con su plano según la visual desde la Tierra en 1612 y con ello se habían hecho muy débiles. La geometría de los apéndices dejó perplejos a los astrónomos, hasta el punto de llegarse a proponer que se trataba de asas unidas a Saturno o que constaban de varios satélites en órbita solamente alrededor de la parte posterior de Saturno, por lo que nunca arrojaban sombra sobre el planeta. . . . . . . #science #ciencia #astro #astronomy #astronomia #universe #universo #space #espacio #astrophotography #astrofotografia #astronauta #astronaut #iss #hubble #nasa #orion #nebulosa #galaxy #galaxia #vialactea #star #estrella #chile #instachile #love #amor #instaespacio #sigemeytesigo
@c.luse_photography of @wyoming_camera and I headed up to #Alcova , WY hoping to hunt some Geminids. While his shot timing was successful in capturing a few meteorites... I was not. However, I am pleased to note that I managed a reasonable portrait of #Orion , the #Pleiades , and our little friend, Comet 46P/Wirtanen; who happens to be visiting from out of town. Despite wind gusts topping 60mph+ I think we did well.

Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky 😎 it’s pretty close at just 8 light years. It doesn’t play around because it’s very Sirius... . . . . Telescope: the usual boy . #stars #astrophotography #space
. Comet 46p/Wirtanen passing along Pleiades star cluster in the constellation Taurus. • Fascinated with everything about the night sky so couldn’t pass this shot up. Single unedited raw file of the comet. It’s the 10th closest comet to earth and who knows when it’ll get this close again. It was amazing. Shot after moon set at 1am. It was worth it! Got to capture my first comet 💫📸 ————————————————————— #astrophotography #comet46p #cometwirtanen #astro_photography #universetoday #astronomyhawaii #galaxy #nightsky #milkywaychasers #astronomy #longexpo #ig_shotz_le #longexposhots #stars #nightscaper #ig_myshot #cosmic #jaw_dropping_shotz #stellar_shots #gottolove_this #spacetime #constellations #starcluster #hawaiistagram #big_shotz #meteorshower #nightskyphotography #natgeospace #insta_worldz #ig_astrophotography

This is a picture of what it would look like if you could see all the Geminid Meteors at one time. I stacked all the pictures on top of each other, using the north star and the milkyway to line up the sky. Then the moon was out the first half of the night, lighting up the rock perfectly. I didn't know if I had the camera facing the right direction, but when I finally got home and saw the result it was worth the long drive and the cold. #geminidmeteorshower #christmascomet #optoutside #nationalpark #capitalreefnationalpark #nightsky #astrophotography #photopills #rokinon14mm #sonyA7rii
Here is one of many photos that I took last night of Comet 46/P Wirtanen next to the Pleiades. I’m still processing that many photos that I captured but it’s looking great so far! Stay tuned! #comet #space #stars #pleiades #astronomy #astrophotography #stem #science #exploration
A picture taken during the peak time of the Geminids meteor shower. The Pleiades star cluster is at the top of the frame and the Comet Wirtanen is at the 8 o’clock position to it appearing as a blue dot. #kentonoklahoma #cimarroncountyok #thisisoklahoma #okl #oklifestyle #mosaicok #geminidsmeteorshower #cometwirtanen #comet #pleiades #stargazers #astrophotography #nightskape #nightscape #nightscapephotography
The Pleiades (M45/The Seven Sisters) is one of the brightest star clusters in the night sky! You can see it with the naked eye if you find the Orion constellation, then look higher up. The cluster is about 400 light years away, so the light I photographed tonight left these stars when Jamestown was founded by the English in continental America :o . . . .

But... Does Mars have ring? Not right now, but maybe one day! And I will tell you why! ⬇ • ☄️ Phobos, one of Mars' moons, is getting closer to the planet every year, meaning the planet's gravitational pull on the satellite is increasing. Phobos is only about 22 kilometres (14 miles) wide, and orbits the Red Planet rapidly. Phobos is drawing closer to Mars by 2 metres every century. In the next 20-40 million years Phobos will be torn apart by gravitational forces leading to the creation of a ring that could last up to 100 million years. 👀 • Would you like to be there to see this happen?

Tried to get a photo of Comet 46P Wirtanen, but the moon was too bright. Oh well... so here’s the moon.
I’m back with more space pics! This is the Orion Nebula (M42). It’s about 1,350 light years away and 12 light years across! . . . . Telescope: f/3.9 8” Newtonian . #astrophotography #orionnebula #space

Comet 46P/Wirtanen made its closest approach to Earth last night when a lucky break in the clouds made it possible to get a good look at it, as it passed by the Pleiades star cluster. Picture here is the result of stacking 18 individual shots of 30 s at iso 800. Pentax K-5 and Rokinon 135 mm F2 @ f/2.0. Star tracking by Pentax astrotracer function. La comète 46P/Wirtanen était à son passage le plus rapproché de la Terre la nuit dernière. Un trou dans les nuages m'a permis de la prendre en photo alors qu'elle passait près des Pléïades. L'image est le résultat de l'empilement de 18 poses de 30 sec à iso 800. Pentax K-5 et Rokinon 135 mm F2 à f/2.0.

Comet 46P/Wirtanen tonight as it made it’s closest approach to earth. Shot from St Petersburg, FL. This was taken using my 1963 Nikon 50mm f/1.4; set at f/2 and ISO 2000. The image is 51 2-second exposures stacked in Sequator. I love this lens soooooo much. It gets the job done each and every time. In the shot we have Taurus on the right, the Pleiades on the left, and the comet in the middle.

Outside freezing my hands off while I capture comet 46P/Wirtanen. This is the 1st time ever that I’ve captured a moving comet. I’m only doing 20 minutes of all LRGB filters & hope to get a decent final image of it. The basic raw image I’m pointing to is with my L filter. I had to pick a star close to the comet’s location & got lucky & found the comet. #comet46p #astrophotography
