A DUST ANGEL NEBULA
The combined light of stars along the Milky Way are reflected by these cosmic dust clouds that soar some 300 light-years or so above the plane of our galaxy. Dubbed the Angel Nebula, the faint apparition is part of an expansive complex of dim and relatively unexplored, diffuse molecular clouds. Commonly found at high galactic latitudes, the dusty galactic cirrus can be traced over large regions toward the North and South Galactic poles. Along with the refection of starlight, studies indicate the dust clouds produce a faint reddish luminescence, as interstellar dust grains convert invisible ultraviolet radiation to visible red light. Also capturing nearby Milky Way stars and an array of distant background galaxies, the deep, wide-field 3x5 degree image spans about 10 Full Moons across planet Earth's sky toward the constellation Ursa Major.

This cosmic pillar of gas and dust is nearly two light-years wide.

The pillar's convoluted outlines are shaped by the winds and radiation of Carina's young, hot, massive stars. But the interior of the cosmic pillar itself is home to stars in the process of formation. In fact, a penetrating infrared view shows the pillar is dominated by two, narrow, energetic jets blasting outward from a still hidden infant star.

Look up at the sky and you see stars and galaxies and planets. But way in the background lurks an interesting form of radiation known as the Cosmic Microwave Background. That's the universe's baby picture, and when we study that picture, we don't only see its past — we also see its future.

Next time you pull out your baby pictures, take a look at the details: what you looked like, who you were with, what you were doing. Often, we can "see" a bit of ourselves today by looking at what we used to be long ago. Our parents, friends, and activities all shaped us into the person we became.
This concept not only works for people, but it's also a useful analogy for science. Even our 13.8-billion-year-old universe was a baby in a time long, long ago – just after the universe was formed in an event known as the Big Bang. Shortly after birth, the universe was so hot and so dense that not even light could penetrate the tiny cocoon. Then space expanded rapidly, allowing light to shine through and molecules to come together. The first stars and galaxies turned on, and just after them came the first planets.
Funny enough, we can still see evidence of all that activity by using microwaves. Light is in a spectrum; we can see some of it with our eyes, but there are other forms of light, like X-rays and microwaves, that we can't see except with telescopes or other scientific instruments. Microwaves have extremely long wavelengths, and by using them, we can peer all the way back to the universe's first few thousand years. Scientists call this "baby picture" the Cosmic Microwave Background, or CMB.

Gaia mission poster released by @esa. The Billion Star Surveyor😍

ESA’s star mapping mission, Gaia, has shown our Milky Way galaxy is still enduring the effects of a near collision that set millions of stars moving like ripples on a pond.

The close encounter likely took place sometime in the past 300–900 million years. It was discovered because of the pattern of movement it has given to stars in the Milky Way disc – one of the major components of our Galaxy.

The pattern was revealed because Gaia not only accurately measures the positions of more than a billion stars but also precisely measures their velocities on the plane of the sky. For a subset of a few million stars, Gaia provided an estimate of the full three-dimensional velocities, allowing a study of stellar motion using the combination of position and velocity, which is known as ‘phase space’. #gaia #mission #surveyor

THE CALABASH NEBULA FROM HUBBLE
Fast expanding gas clouds mark the end for a central star in the Calabash Nebula. The once-normal star has run out of nuclear fuel, causing the central regions to contract into a white dwarf. Some of the liberated energy causes the outer envelope of the star to expand. In this case, the result is a photogenic proto-planetary nebula. As the million-kilometer per hour gas rams into the surrounding interstellar gas, a supersonic shock front forms where ionized hydrogen and nitrogen glow blue. Thick gas and dust hide the dying central star. The Calabash Nebula, also known as the Rotten Egg Nebula and OH231.8+4.2, will likely develop into a full bipolar planetary nebula over the next 1000 years. The nebula, featured here, is about 1.4 light-years in extent and located about 5000 light-years away toward the constellation of Puppis.

Stars and Dust in Corona Australis

Cosmic 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 lightfrom more distant background stars in theMilky Way. But the striking complex of reflection nebulae cataloged as NGC 6726, 6727, and IC 4812 produce a characteristic color as blue light from the region's young, hot stars is reflected by the cosmic dust. The dust also obscures from view stars still in the process of formation. At top right, smaller yellowish nebula NGC 6729 bends around young variable star R Coronae Australis. Near 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 1 degree. That corresponds to almost 9 light-years at the estimated distance of the nearby star forming region.

What do you think about this?🤔
.
.
Atmosphere about 50-60 km from the surface of Venus is very similar to the atmosphere on earth (the oxygen/nitrogen/CO2 levels and pressures are about the same). If there was a way, to say, create a floating city at that elevation, what would it be like?

Hunting for Earth-like planets:
The US' National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) released a jaw-dropping new image captured by its newest planet hunter, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). NASA's planet hunter telescope, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), has shared the first image that it captured on its initial round of data collection.
It captured dozens of constellations, including Capricornus and Pictor, and both the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, according to NASA's release on the photo.

TESS also captured the likes of NGC 104, a spherical collection of hundreds of thousands of stars that includes Beta Gruis and R Doradus. Both stars are so bright that they show up as vertical lines of white in images picked up by TESS' second and fourth cameras.

This is my favorite picture of all time. 6,500-7,000 #LightYears from #earth are the #PillarsOfCreation. They are giant towers of interstellar gas and dust. The entire structure from left to right is ~5 light years, or 29,393,127,706,242 miles (that is 29 TRILLION miles!!)! The far left pillar itself is 4 light years tall. Each 1 of those little tiny finger like potrusions (I circled a few in green), called evaporating gaseous globules, are big enough to easily fit our entire solar system! The pillars of creation, in my opinion is the most beautiful structure in the entire #Universe.

“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:”
.
The striking spiral galaxy M104 is famous for its nearly edge-on profile featuring a broad ring of obscuring dust lanes. Seen in silhouette against an extensive bulge of stars, the swath of cosmic dust lends a broad brimmed hat-like appearance to the galaxy suggesting the more popular moniker, The Sombrero Galaxy. Hubble Space Telescope and ground-based Subaru data have been reprocessed with amateur color image data to create this sharp view of the well-known galaxy. The processing results in a natural color appearance and preserves details often lost in overwhelming glare of M104's bright central bulge when viewed with smaller ground-based instruments. Also known as NGC 4594, the Sombrero galaxy can be seen across the spectrum and is thought to host a central supermassive black hole. About 50,000 light-years across and 28 million light-years away, M104 is one of the largest galaxies at the southern edge of the Virgo Galaxy Cluster.

Near the center of this sharp cosmic portrait, at the heart of the Orion Nebula, are four hot, massive stars known as the Trapezium. Gathered within a region about 1.5 light-years in radius, they dominate the core of the dense Orion Nebula Star Cluster. Ultraviolet ionizing radiation from the Trapezium stars, mostly from the brightest star Theta-1 Orionis C powers the complex star forming region's entire visible glow. About three million years old, the Orion Nebula Cluster was even more compact in its younger years and a recent dynamical study indicates that runaway stellar collisions at an earlier age may have formed a black hole with more than 100 times the mass of the Sun. The presence of a black hole within the cluster could explain the observed high velocities of the Trapezium stars. The Orion Nebula's distance of some 1,500 light-years would make it the closest known black hole to planet Earth.

It may look like a grazing seahorse, but the dark object toward the image right is actually a pillar of smoky dust about 20 light years long. The curiously-shaped dust structure occurs in our neighboring Large Magellanic Cloud, in a star forming region very near the expansive Tarantula Nebula. The energetic nebula is creating a star cluster, NGC 2074, whose center is visible just off the top of the image in the direction of the neck of the seahorse. The representative color image was taken last year by the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 in honor of Hubble's 100,000th trip around the Earth. As young stars in the cluster form, their light and winds will slowly erode the dust pillars away over the next million years. #outerspace #messier #galaxie #spirale #Tournesol #space #cosmos #nasa #esa #Hubble #astrophotography #Méchain #hubble #hubbletelescope #nasa #shuttle #aliens #astrothoughts #astrology #iss #spacevideos #galaxy #Terre#constellation #Chiens #chasse #Univers #universe #cosmos #espace
