QUICK SOLAR OUTBURST



A small eruption blew a bright, disjointed stream of plasma into space (Oct. 18, 2017). The source of the blast was just out of sight beyond the edge of the sun. Images from SOHO's coronagraph instruments show a bright loop of material heading away from the sun near this same area. The video, taken in extreme ultraviolet light, covers just two hours of activity.

A BEAUTIFUL TRIFID Image Credit & Copyright: Chamaeleon Team - Franz Hofmann, Wolfgang Paech




The beautiful Trifid Nebula is a cosmic study in contrasts. Also known as M20, it lies about 5,000 light-years away toward the nebula rich constellation Sagittarius. A star forming region in the plane of our galaxy, the Trifid does illustrate three different types of astronomical nebulae; red emission nebulae dominated by light from hydrogen atoms, blue reflection nebulae produced by dust reflecting starlight, and dark nebulae where dense dust clouds appear in silhouette. But the red emission region roughly separated into three parts by obscuring dust lanes is what lends the Trifid its popular name. Pillars and jets sculpted by newborn stars, below and left of the emission nebula's center, appear in famous Hubble Space Telescope close-up images of the region. The Trifid Nebula is about 40 light-years across. Just too faint to be seen by the unaided eye, it almost covers the area of the Moon in planet Earth's sky.

LYNDS DARK NEBULA 183 Image Credit & Copyright: Fabian Neyer



Beverly Lynds Dark Nebula 183 lies a mere 325 light-years away, drifting high above the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy. Obscuring the starlight behind it when viewed at optical wavelengths, the dark, dusty molecular cloud itself seems starless. But far infrared explorations reveal dense clumps within, likely stars in the early stages of formation as enhanced regions of the cloud undergo gravitational collapse. One of the closest molecular clouds, it is seen toward the constellation Serpens Caput. This sharp cosmic cloud portrait spans about half a degree on the sky. That's about 3 light-years at the estimated distance of Lynds Dark Nebula 183.

AURORA ON WATER, AURORAS IN THE SKY, AURORAS EVERYWHERE! Taken by Markus Varik on October 19, 2017 @ Tromsø, Norway.



19th of October decided to come with a bang up in Northern Norway. The lights were out as soon it got dark enough and lasted the whole night, giving us plenty of time to take some cool photos. Supposedly were heading to Solar Minimum, but to be honest, me as a seasoned Northern Lights guide, have never seen such a strong beginning to the season. Long live Aurora!

M51: THE WHIRLPOOL GALAXY Image Credit & Copyright: Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn (Weather and Sky Photography)



Find the Big Dipper and follow the handle away from the dipper's bowl until you get to the last bright star. Then, just slide your telescope a little south and west and you'll come upon this stunning pair of interacting galaxies, the 51st entry in Charles Messier's famous catalog. Perhaps the original spiral nebula, the large galaxy with well defined spiral structure is also cataloged as NGC 5194. Its spiral arms and dust lanes clearly sweep in front of its companion galaxy (bottom), NGC 5195. The pair are about 31 million light-years distant and officially lie within the angular boundaries of the small constellation Canes Venatici. Though M51 looks faint and fuzzy to the eye, deep images like this one can reveal striking colors and the faint tidal debris around the smaller galaxy

STARS AND DUST IN CORONA AUSTRALIS Image Credit & Copyright: Eric Coles & Martin Pugh



Blue dust clouds and young, energetic stars inhabit this telescopic vista, less than 500 light-years away toward the northern boundary of Corona Australis, the Southern Crown. The dust clouds effectively block light from more distant background stars in the Milky Way. But the striking complex of reflection nebulas cataloged as NGC 6726, 6727, and IC 4812 produce a characteristic blue color as light from the region's bright blue stars is reflected by the cosmic dust. The dust also obscures from view stars still in the process of formation. At the left, smaller yellowish nebula NGC 6729 bends around young variable star R Coronae Australis. Just below it, glowing arcs and loops shocked by outflows from embedded newborn stars are identified as Herbig-Haro objects. On the sky this field of view spans about one degree, corresponding to almost nine light-years at the estimated distance of the nearby star forming region.

GOLDEN HOUR !..🌇..😃


SPRAWLING CORONAL HOLE



A large coronal hole stands out as the most obvious feature on the sun this week (Oct. 12-13, 2017). The dark structure, shaped kind of like the Pi symbol, spreads across much of the top of the sun. Though one cannot tell from this image and video clip in false-color extreme ultraviolet light, it is spewing high-speed solar wind particles into space and has been doing this all week. It is likely that these charged particles have been interacting with Earth's atmosphere and generating many aurora displays in regions near the poles the past several days.

TWO SWALLOWS CIRCLING SETTING SUN Taken by Peter Lowenstein on October 15, 2017 @ Mutare, Zimbabwe




On the evening of 15 October, numerous Swallows were out foraging for insects while the Sun was setting behind a thin veil of high cloud. The animation and composite, prepared using frames extracted from a video, show the grace and beauty of two of them circling around it. The video was taken with a tripod mounted Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ60 camera in sunset scene mode and x60 zoom magnification.
