"Propellor" One of the most surreal experiences is sitting under one of these large wind turbines in the middle of the night listening to the slow whirring of the mechanism as it barely turns in the slightest breeze. The gentle movement was enough to blur the blades during the 10 second exposure. A yellow gelled torch was used to light the tower.

The Plaiades Deep and Dusty. The well-known Pleiades star cluster is slowly destroying part of a passing cloud of gas and dust. The Pleiades is the brightest open cluster of stars on Earth's sky and can be seen from almost any northerly location with the unaided eye. The passing young dust cloud is thought to be part of Gould's Belt, an unusual ring of young star formation surrounding the Sun in the local Milky Way Galaxy. Over the past 100,000 years, part of Gould's Belt is by chance moving right through the older Pleiades and is causing a strong reaction between stars and dust. Pressure from the stars' light significantly repels the dust in the surrounding blue reflection nebula, with smaller dust particles being repelled more strongly. A short-term result is that parts of the dust cloud have become filamentary and stratified. The featured deep image also captured Comet C/2015 ER61 (PanSTARRS) on the lower left.

Hubble’s Barred and Booming Spiral Galaxy This image, captured by the @NASAHubble, shows a galaxy named UGC 6093. As can be easily seen, UGC 6093 is something known as a barred spiral galaxy — it has beautiful arms that swirl outwards from a bar slicing through the galaxy’s center. It is classified as an active galaxy, which means that it hosts an active galactic nucleus, or AGN: a compact region at a galaxy’s center within which material is dragged towards a supermassive black hole. As this black hole devours the surrounding matter it emits intense radiation, causing it to shine brightly. But UGC 6093 is more exotic still. The galaxy essentially acts as a giant astronomical laser that also spews out light at microwave, not visible, wavelengths — this type of object is dubbed a megamaser (maser being the term for a microwave laser). Megamasers such as UGC 6093 can be some 100 million times brighter than masers found in galaxies like the Milky Way.

16 Jan, 2018. The Dead amongst the Living 😵💀👻 Looking at this photo and seeing the three dead trees standing amongst the many living ones, I started pondering the social guideline that says to “not speak ill of the dead”. If trees could have thoughts and feelings, how would the living regard the dead ones? Would they look at them shyly, too embarrassed to be seen gazing at the revered remains of their ancestors? Instead, perhaps the younger and cocksure trees would sneer at them for not having been able to “go the distance”; for giving up the fight. 🌟 🌌 Fanciful thoughts, for sure, but consider all the more the fact that a number of the stars you see in this photo could have been dead for many years, even for centuries. The starlight that our eyes detect is what has reached us at the instant we are looking, after having travelled through space for varying distances over proportional lengths of time. If a star is four light-years away, then we’re seeing the light as it was four years ago when it left that star. If a hundred light-years distant, then our view is of one hundred year-old light. A simple look at the numbers says that at least some of the stars in this photo are dead now, despite looking alive and alight to us. As with the trees, there are many dead stars amongst the living. 📷 A single frame, shot with Canon EOS 6D, Samyang 14mm @@ f/2.8, 30 sec @ ISO 6400. • • • • • @astro_photography_ @space @universe247 #astro_photography_ #astronomy #astrophotography #darkskyshots #elitelongexposures #fantastic_universe #globalpixels #ig_astrophotography #ig_shutterworld #night_shooterz #nightimages #nightphotography #nightscape #nightscapeoz #nightscaper #nightshooters #stargazing #startalkradio #timelessuniverse #universe #universetoday #WeOwnTheNight_IG #night_excl #StargazingABC #super_longexpo #milkyway #galaxy #WOTN_MilkyWay #MilkyWayChasers #MilkyWayGrams

“Pardon Me!”…This supermassive black hole, billions of times the mass of our Sun, was caught by our Chandra X-Ray Observatory doing some cosmic snacking then "burping" 🗣— twice! This image shows the galaxy, in a composite image with data from Chandra (purple), and the Hubble Space Telescope (@NASAHubble) (red, green and blue). Chandra detected a bright, point-like source of X-ray emission from the galaxy, a telltale sign of the presence of a supermassive black hole millions or billions of times more massive than our sun. The X-rays are produced by gas heated to millions of degrees by the enormous gravitational and magnetic forces near the black hole. Some of this gas will fall into the black hole, while a portion will be expelled in a powerful outflow of high-energy particles. By comparing images from Chandra and Hubble, the team determined that the black hole is located in the center of the galaxy, the expected location for such an object. The X-ray data also provide evidence that the supermassive black hole is embedded in a heavy veil of dust and gas. Credit: X-ray NASA/CXC/University of Colorado/J.

Hubble's Holiday Nebula “Ornament” . @NASAHubble captured what looks like a colorful holiday ornament in space. It's actually an image of NGC 6326, a planetary nebula with glowing wisps of outpouring gas that are lit up by a central star nearing the end of its life. . When a star ages and the red giant phase of its life comes to an end, it starts to eject layers of gas from its surface leaving behind a hot and compact white dwarf. Sometimes this ejection results in elegantly symmetric patterns of glowing gas, but NGC 6326 is much less structured. This object is located in the constellation of Ara, the Altar, about 11,000 light-years from Earth. Planetary nebulae are one of the main ways in which elements heavier than hydrogen and helium are dispersed into space after their creation in the hearts of stars. Eventually some of this out-flung material may form new stars and planets. . This picture was created from images taken using the Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Planetary Camera 2. The vivid blue and red hues come from material including ionized oxygen and hydrogen glowing under the action of the fierce ultraviolet radiation from the still hot central star. .

14 Jan, 2018. Namadgi nightscape ❤️ Dead trees are favourite objects of mine for featuring in any kind of landscape photography. Nightscape shots seem to lend themselves to using these beautiful relics as foreground pieces to frame the stars, constellations, planets and galaxies to try to link the earthly and ephemeral to the almost endless sky. Like most other trees in this location–the Namadgi National Park, in the Australian Capital Territory–these once-living timbers are Australian eucalypts, or “gum trees”. The taller limbs are doing a wonderful job of framing up the Magellanic Cloud galaxies here. 💡 While I was creating this shot Ian Williams was a bit further off, setting up for a shot or two of his own. You can see the light from Ian’s Lume Cube, and Ian himself, at the bottom of this scene, about a quarter of the way in from the right. I had to drive back home to Sydney the next day, so Ian and I didn’t get a chance to compare shots from the night.

Orion constellation! Orion was known as a talented hunter. His boast that he could rid the earth of all the wild animals, however, angered the Earth goddess, Gaia. She sent a scorpion to defeat Orion. Orion tried to battle the scorpion, but he quickly realized that he could not shoot his arrow through the creature’s armor. To avoid the scorpion, he jumped into the sea. It was then that Apollo (the Greek god of the Sun) decided to take action. He pointed out to his twin sister, Artemis, a small black object in the sea. Claiming it was a horrible villain, he dared her to shoot it with her bow and arrow. Artemis easily hit the target. When she swam out to retrieve her victim, however, she discovered that the villain was her friend, Orion. Artemis begged the gods to bring Orion back to life, but they refused. So, instead, she put Orion’s picture in the sky so that she could always see him. And that's how this constellation got its name! # plz double tab if you love it . . via @stargazer_official_ . . .

NGC 2403 in Camelopardalis Magnificent island universe NGC 2403 stands within the boundaries of the long-necked constellation Camelopardalis. Some 10 million light-years distant and about 50,000 light-years across, the spiral galaxy also seems to have more than its fair share of giant star forming HII regions, marked by the telltale reddish glow of atomic hydrogen gas. The giant HII regions are energized by clusters of hot, massive stars that explode as bright supernovae at the end of their short and furious lives. A member of the M81 group of galaxies, NGC 2403 closely resembles another galaxy with an abundance of star forming regions that lies within our own local galaxy group, M33 the Triangulum Galaxy. Spiky in appearance, bright stars in this colorful galaxy portrait of NGC 2403 are in the foreground, within our own Milky Way.

13 Jan, 2018. On the road to Tidbinbilla 🌌 The Tidbinbilla area, in our country’s federal district of the Australian Capital Territory, shows evidence of being inhabited by our Aboriginal peoples at least 20,000 years ago This place that was used by these people who navigated by the stars, hunted by the appearing of certain constellations throughout the year and who incorporated features of the night sky into their culture, is now the location for one of NASA’s three deep-space communications installations, always pointing to the sky. 🛰📡 The road sign points to the Tidbinbilla Tracking Station, which is officially known as the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex, and has tracked & communicated with many spacecraft over the five decades it’s been open. These include the 1964 Mariner 4 spacecraft’s encounter with Mars; multiple Apollo Lunar Modules; the Viking Mars missions; the Voyager and Voyager 2 journeys to the gas-giant and ice-giant planets; the NASA Gamma Ray Observatory; some of the Skylab missions; the Space Shuttle; and the Cassini probe, including being the station that received the final signals from this Saturn-orbiting probe in September of 2017. 🌙 I was lurking in the area on Friday night (5th Jan) and took this shot that looks almost due south. It shows the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, the Coal Sack nebula, the Pointers (Alpha and Beta Centauri), the Southern Cross (aka Crux) and the Eta Carinae region, shining out of a sky that looks blue due to the light of the moon that had risen less than an hour before. 📷 A single frame, taken with Canon EOS 6D, Samyang 14mm @@ f/2.8, 15 sec @ ISO 1600. • • • • • @astro_photography_ @space @universe247 #astro_photography_ #astronomy #astrophotography #darkskyshots #elitelongexposures #fantastic_universe #globalpixels #ig_astrophotography #ig_shutterworld #night_shooterz #nightimages #nightphotography #nightscape #nightscapeoz #nightscaper #nightshooters #stargazing #startalkradio #timelessuniverse #universe #universetoday #WeOwnTheNight_IG #night_excl #StargazingABC #super_longexpo #magellanicclouds

09 Jan, 2018. Lunar valley 🛰🌙 Not a valley on the Moon, but a valley where the sky was lit by the moon, and a place close to where moon-landing communications were made. Nine kilometres (5.5 mi) north-northwest of this spot are the remnants of the former NASA tracking station at Honeysuckle Creek. Honeysuckle has long since been decommissioned but in its time it served as the antenna that received the first pictures of Neil Armstrong setting foot on the moon on July 20, 1969. The equipment and staff at Honeysuckle served through the Apollo programs and also the subsequent Skylab missions. 🌌 Ian Williams @@ima@esbyimw suggested that we stop here on our way back from shooting the dark skies further south of Canberra, ACT, Australia last Saturday night. Behind us was a shearing shed that was positioned well under Orion and the Pleiades and that we photographed by the light of Ian’s Lume Cube. I’ll post one of those shots another time. Our photographs over the previous few hours had been taken under very dark skies but as we pulled up here we could see the glow of the imminent moonrise behind the hills to the east. The moon’s light–which is actually reflected sunlight–changed the background sky to the blue colour you can see in the photo. The dense band of the Milky Way traces a line diagonally up from the lower-right to the upper-left of the scene while the Large Magellanic Cloud dominates the top-right of the image. Ian’s 4WD waits for us by the roadside, just a short walk and a risky clamber over a barbed-wire fence away. 📷 This single image was taken with Canon EOS 6D, Samyang 14mm @ f/2.8, 30 sec @ ISO 6400. • • • • • @astro_photography_ @space @universe247 # plz double tab if you love it . . via @nightscapades . . .

L'OBJET LE PLUS FROID DE L'UNIVERS PGC 3074547, surnommée la nébuleuse du Boomerang ou du Noeud papillon, est une protonébuleuse planetaire située à environ 5 000 années-lumière de la Terre dans la constellation du Centaure. En effet, cet objet n'est pas encore une nébuleuse planétaire mais est un état intermédiaire de cette transformation. Cette étape arrive lorsqu'une étoile, de masse faible à moyenne en fin de vie, a déjà consommé tout son hydrogène et commence à consommer son hélium. Avec une température d'environ -272°C, la nébuleuse du Boomerang est l'objet naturel le plus froid de l'Univers. Cette température extrêmement froide s'explique notamment par une expansion très rapide du gaz qui s'échappe de l'étoile mourante au centre, à environ 500 000 km/h.

12 Jan, 2018. Shearing shed at midnight 🙏 It’s great to have someone with local knowledge to show you around when you’re visiting a new area for your photography (and for lots of other things). My friend and fellow nightscape photographer Ian Williams @ima@@esbyimw showed me this shearing shed on our way back from our Saturday night session last weekend in the Australian Capital Territory. The time was close to midnight and Orion was riding high, with his companions The Hyades in Taurus and the Pleiades scrambling down the sky ahead of the mighty hunter. 🌖 We grabbed a few shots here before the moon rose and washed out the sky, prompting us to wrap up for the night. Being summer I asked Ian if I needed to worry about snakes at night. I don’t remember his exact reply but I was extra careful with my footing after that. We have some of the world’s most venomous snakes in Australia and getting bitten by one of those could really ruin a night of photography. Ian used his Lume Cube to bring the shed out of the darkness. 📷 Captured with Canon EOS 6D Mk II, Samyang 14mm XP lens @ f/3.2, 20 second exposure @ ISO 3200. @astro_photography_ @space @universe247 #astro_photography_ #astronomy #astrophotography #darkskyshots #elitelongexposures #fantastic_universe #globalpixels #ig_astrophotography #ig_shutterworld #night_shooterz #nightimages #nightphotography #nightscape #nightscapeoz #nightscaper #nightshooters #stargazing #startalkradio #timelessuniverse #universe #universetoday #WeOwnTheNight_IG #night_excl #StargazingABC #super_longexpo

[Bonus post] 10 Jan, 2018. Deep space dish rack 🛰 The 70-metre diameter DSS-43 antenna, the largest of the dishes at the Tidbinilla CDSCC (Canberra Deep Space Communications Complex), has its back to the camera for this photo, viewed through the grasses beside Discovery Drive near Canberra, Australia. This 75-metre tall, 3000-ton behemoth is renowned for its work in communicating with many of NASA’s deep-space probes since its opening in 1973. The last signals from NASA’s Cassini probe were received in September 2017, 83 minutes after the spacecraft plunged into Saturn’s atmosphere. DSS-43 is kept company in this shot by two of its smaller siblings, although with diameters of 34 metres they’re hardly all that small.

28 Nov, 2017. Totally rusted out The Milky Way rising over the sandstone cliffs of the Beecroft Peninsula near Jervis Bay, Australia. The air was heavily laden with moisture on this Saturday night, in May of 2017. As well as that there was a lot of orange airglow in the atmosphere and these two factors combined to give this photo a total rusted-out look. I hope to return to the location early in the 2018 Milky Way core season. I hope all the more for better atmospheric conditions and better images.

"Standing to Attention" A shot I took last year when the milky way core was rising above this desolate old windmill on a farm in the bush. Nothing beats the times I've spent pondering such scenes at night. No disturbance except for the odd rabbit scurrying past, not a breath of wind .. calm and peaceful serenity.

10 Jan, 2018. Southern Summer Stars ❄️☁️ 💨 In the northern hemisphere, seeing Orion riding high in the sky like in this photo would probably mean that you’re outside in the cold. Very cold for some. Love it or hate it, it’s winter time. It would also say that you’re upside down, because of how Orion looks here compared to how you see the constellation of The Hunter. Further down and to the left is the Hyades cluster in the constellation of Taurus, as well as the jewel-like beauty of the "Seven Sisters", the Pleiades. ☀️ These twinkling trademarks of the night remind us Southern Hemisphere folk that we’re in high summer, as if the temperature and dry grass weren’t enough reminders, already. The dead gum trees that I framed these familiar stars against hold much beauty, despite the fact that they will never again see a new leaf or gum blossom birthed from their limbs. 🌌 As much as I hate light pollution, the wasted wattage blasting out from Canberra–Australia's capital–did provide a source of silhouette for the hills and mountains of this area that’s south of the city, but almost at the centre of this Australian Capital Territory. 📷 A single shot, captured with Canon EOS 6D, Samyang 14mm @@ f/3.2, 20 sec @ ISO 6400. The tree was lit up by Ian Williams’ @imagesbyimw Lume Cube. • • • • • @astro_photography_ @space @universe247 #astro_photography_ #astronomy #astrophotography #darkskyshots #elitelongexposures #fantastic_universe #globalpixels #ig_astrophotography #ig_shutterworld #night_shooterz #nightimages #nightphotography #nightscape #nightscapeoz #nightscaper #nightshooters #stargazing #startalkradio #timelessuniverse #universe #universetoday #WeOwnTheNight_IG #night_excl #StargazingABC #super_longexpo

Deep space dish rack 🛰 The 70-metre diameter DSS-43 antenna, the largest of the dishes at the Tidbinilla CDSCC (Canberra Deep Space Communications Complex), has its back to the camera for this photo, viewed through the grasses beside Discovery Drive near Canberra, Australia. This 75-metre tall, 3000-ton behemoth is renowned for its work in communicating with many of NASA’s deep-space probes since its opening in 1973. The last signals from NASA’s Cassini probe were received in September 2017, 83 minutes after the spacecraft plunged into Saturn’s atmosphere. DSS-43 is kept company in this shot by two of its smaller siblings, although with diameters of 34 metres they’re hardly all that small. Apparently they give great WiFi reception! 📷 Shot with Canon EOS 6D, Sigma 50-500mm lens @@@ 161mm @ f/16, 1/400 sec @ ISO 400. • • • • • @astro_photography_ @space @universe247 #astro_photography_ #astronomy #astrophotography #darkskyshots #elitelongexposures #fantastic_universe #globalpixels #ig_astrophotography #ig_shutterworld #night_shooterz #nightimages #nightphotography #nightscape #nightscapeoz #nightscaper #nightshooters #stargazing #startalkradio #timelessuniverse #universe #universetoday #WeOwnTheNight_IG #night_excl #StargazingABC #super_longexpo #nasa @canberradsn

OSIRIS-REx, la sonda della Nasa che fra qualche anno riporterà sulla Terra un pezzo di asteroide, ha acquisito questa spettacolare immagine del nostro pianeta e della Luna. La missione lanciata l'8 settembre 2016 è diretta verso Bennu, un masso spaziale che la sonda avvicinerà a partire dall'agosto 2018, a una distanza di circa 320 milioni di km dalla Terra. Per raggiungere la meta, OSIRIS-REx ha orbitato per un anno intorno al Sole, prima di passare accanto al nostro pianeta per sfruttarne la spinta gravitazionale. Questa immagine composita è stata catturata proprio durante questa manovra, il 2 ottobre 2017, quando la sonda si trovava a 5 milioni di km da noi (13 volte la distanza Terra-Luna). Per ottenere la foto che vedete sono state combinate tre immagini a diverse lunghezze d'onde acquisite dallo strumento MapCam. # plz double tab if you love it . . via @curiosity_astronomy . . .
