ESO GigaGalaxy Zoom Project - 21 September 2009 Pixel Starscape from Paranal" - This mosaic was assembled from 52 different sky fields made from about 1200 individual images totalling 200 hours exposure time (ESO/S.
The familiar Eagle Nebula glows bright in many colors at once. The above image is a composite of three of these glowing gas colors. Pillars of dark dust nicely outline some of the denser towers of star formation. Energetic light from young massive stars causes the gas to glow and effectively boils away part of the dust and gas from its birth pillar. Many of these stars will explode after several million years, returning most of their elements back to the nebula which formed them. This…
“Monster” outflows of charged particles from the centre of our Galaxy, stretching more than halfway across the sky, have been detected and mapped with CSIRO’s Parkes radio telescope. The new-found outflows of particles (pale blue) from the.
A closer look at Orion
The constellation of Orion holds much more than three stars in a row. A deep exposure shows everything from dark nebula to star clusters, all embedded in an extended patch of gaseous wisps in the greater Orion Molecular Cloud Complex.
The entire f***king universe, baby.
the finnish astrophotographer has captured the immense awe of nebulous clouds with a series of experiments that fuse science and art.
