    most extraordinary space photos | Most Amazing Pictures of Outer Space - Eskimo Nebula

  • 😻 Atheana Kalantzakos-Rowe

    In this series (see other pics) astronomers selected the top 10 most amazing pictures taken by the Hubble space telescope in the last 16 years. "...they illustrate that our universe is not only deeply strange, but also almost impossibly beautiful." Michael Hanlon/AH (Nov 25th, 2006) . After correcting an initial problem with the lens, when the Hubble Space Telescope was first launched in 1990, the floating astro-observatory began to relay back to Earth, incredible snapshots of the "final frontier" it was perusing. Recently, astronauts voted on the top photographs taken by Hubble, in its 16-year journey so far. Remarking in the article from the Daily Mail, reporter Michael Hanlon says the photos "illustrate that our universe is not only deeply strange, but also almost impossibly beautiful." In this photo, in third place, is Nebula NGC 2392, called Eskimo because it looks like a face surrounded by a furry hood. The hood is, in fact, a ring of comet-shaped objects flying away from a dying star. Eskimo is 5,000 light years from Earth.

  • Evant Horizon

    The Eskimo Nebula, a bipolar double-shell planetary nebula almost 3,000 lightyears away. This nebula is composed of inner filaments ejected by a strong wind of particles from the central star surrounded by an outer layer of gas. The nebula's "Eskimo" nickname derives from its resemblance to a head surrounded by a parka hood. #Eskimo #nebula #nebulae #hubble #telescope #universe #physics #astronomy #astrophysics #astrophotography #sky #space #geology #cosmos #night #nature #moon

    Eskimo Nebula NGC2392 - Planetary nebula, 5 thousand light years

  • Rick Quisenberry

    This stellar relic, first spied by William Herschel in 1787, is nicknamed the “Eskimo” Nebula (NGC 2392) because, when viewed through ground-based telescopes, it resembles a face surrounded by a fur parka. In this Hubble telescope image, the “parka” is really a disk of material embellished with a ring of comet-shaped objects, with their tails streaming away from the central, dying star.

Finnish astrophotographer J-P Metsävainio observed IC 1396, making a gorgeous image of it. But he wasn’t satisfied just doing that. He’d been playing with making 3D images for some time, and decided this might be a good opportunity to make a model of the structure of the nebula, and then create an animated GIF of it.

This is so incredibly beautiful!!!
