The bright #stars of #ursamajor or the #bigdipper were the first thing we could see appear after #sunset (after venus that is, it was visible almost before the sun set). with the sky so light many of the dimmer starts are still invisible, so it's a lot easier to see the constellation than it can be in long exposures of the dark night sky.

I am uploading this video because it is absolutely amazing.
*
๐Ÿš€ in 2014, a spacecraft called rosetta reached a comet on the outskirts of our solar system called 67p.
*
๐Ÿ‘พ at that moment it released a probe that landed on the comet and took a series of photographs of the surface. these photographs were put together into a short clip which you can see here (looped and reversed for continuity by yours truly).
*
๐ŸŽฅ what you are seeing is a pov as if you were standing on this comet that is racing through the universe, inside our solar system, lit by our sun (which would look the size of a small pebble from there), and with its own small but lively climate.
*
๐Ÿง  if that doesn't absolutely b**w your mind and fill you with awe, then i don't know what will. maybe a bunny carrying a machine gun... i don't know.
*
enjoy.

The iris and ghost nebula (ngc7023 and vdb 141)

i captured this dusty duo from my stay in big bend national park, tx, a bortle 1 on the dark sky rating. to take advantage of the dark skies, i chose a target that is all reflection nebula and non-reflective molecular clouds. cepheus is full of this dust that can only be revealed from dark skies!
with only 4hrs of integration time, i would normally be hesitant to call it “done”, but the dark skies really helped bring the signal through, and some generous noise reduction helped as well. when i return to true dark skies in the future, i’ll most likely continue adding data to this, as it can only get better!

Mars rising. working on shots with my 14mm lens. not the best, but a work in progress. got mars in the lower middle portion of the image rising up for the night. happy chasing astro hunters ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿผ #astronomy#astrophotography#astro#universe#universetoday#milkyway#milkywaychasers#newmilkyway#galaxy#skywatcher#skywatcherusa#staradventurer#canon#canonusa#canon_photos#canon6d#rokinon#14mm#interstellar#nightphotography#mars#star#stardust#cosmos#cosmic#ocastronomers#space#photographingspace

Nosso sistema solar, assim como todas as estrelas observáveis da terra no céu, estão localizados no braço de órion da nossa via láctea, a cerca de 26 mil anos luz do centro da galáxia. comparação em escala: se o sistema solar fosse uma plaqueta de sangue, a via láctea seria do tamanho do planeta terra.

Long exposure makes light polution very evident. that’s a good reason to quote lord vader: “you don’t know the power of the dark side”. #joaquimegidio #sousas #morungaba #stars #campinas #astrophotography #astronomy #observatory #nightphotography #picodascabras

It’s the grim heart of darkness at the very core of humanity’s home universe.

but the most detailed ever images of the supermassive black hole at the milky way’s centre paint a rather cheery-looking picture of this grim galactic gobbler.

scientists working new radio telescope called meerkat releasing an image described as the ‘clearest view yet’ of the centre of our galaxy, which is 25,000 light-years away from earth and lying behind the constellation sagittarius.
