Throwback to last week when I was in San Francisco and got a chance to go up to Battery Spencer and spend a few minutes photographing the Golden Gate Bridge. Unfortunately I didn't get too much time and has to rush after just 6-7 shots!

Last night in Colorado, freezing cold, crystal clear sky and spectacular landscape of the Rocky Mountains in moonlight. The Milky Way was still faintly visible thanks to the high altitude and transparent air. Above the frozen lake are the Maroon Bells, the two iconic peaks of the Elk Mountains, near Aspen.

Today is Astrophoto Thursday on my feed. We go back to 2009 for this one. On the 27th of February. At first glance you might notice the pretty bright meteor in the center of the frame and if you are used to the night sky you will also identify the constellation of Leo, the Lion. But there is more than that. Have you seen the green blob lower right of center? That’s comet Lulin. And the bright “star” close to the bottom of the frame is planet Saturn.
Swipe left for an annotated image that will make identification easier.
Shot with a Canon EOS 5D and a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4.

El fin de semana fuimos a #Lagunillas con mi papá y mi hermano. Llegamos justo al atardecer y alcancé a sacar algunas fotos con la luz suave de la tarde. Estaba muy nublado, pero luego se despejó y aparecieron las estrellas y la luna que iluminaba un poquito 🌠. En la primera foto sale mi hermano @der_freeman junto a su telescopio, porque es muy aficionado a la astronomía 🚀.
Por mi parte, sigo aprendiendo esto de la foto nocturna 😉.

The World at Night
@AlxCherney's photo is featuring today as APOD in NASA.
📷: Comet 46P/Wirtanen
Explanation: Periodic Comet 46P/Wirtanen is now the brightest comet in the night sky, but too faint to be seen by eye. From dark sky sites it could just become naked-eye visible though, as it's 5.4 year long looping orbit takes it closest to Earth and the Sun in mid December. Fluorescing in sunlight, its spherical coma is about half the angular size of a full moon in this southern hemisphere telescopic view from November 7. Then the comet was about 2 light-minutes away or 35 million kilometers from Earth-bound telescopes, so the pretty greenish coma seen here is around 150,000 kilometers across. That makes it about the size of Jupiter. The stack of digital images also reveals a very faint tail extending toward 4 o'clock with a distant background galaxy notable at the upper left. As a regular visitor to the inner Solar System, comet 46P/Wirtanen was once the favored rendezvous target for ESA's comet exploring Rosetta mission.

Low tide reveals striking colors and erosion patterns at Salt Point State Park as a full moon rises over the dusk lit landscape. Moments like this, when all I can do is marvel at the beauty of natural world, continuously motivate me to be outside, exploring.

Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things clearly, to stay focused, calm and relaxed, Sky is a perfect cure for any kind of sickness. By changing your mood you can be mentally and physically healthy. Try it once I’m sure you’re gonna make time to do this again.
The mosaic image is stitched of 3 single shots.

Billions of stars in the sky.

The Milky Way contains between 200 and 400 billion stars and at least 100 billion planets. The exact figure depends on the number of very-low-mass stars, which are hard to detect, especially at distances of more than 300 ly from the Sun.

Don't miss the Leonid Meteor Shower - it peaks this weekend! Anybody on tour in the Bernese alps?

Milky Way A'Fin'nity:⠀
Shark fin cove is one of the very well known spots in the Bay Area and on the Pacific Coastal Highway. The alignment of Milky Way to the Shark Fin happens for like 20-25 days only and you have to pick the right time when the moon is in the right phase. The current shot was taken at 1 AM in the night when the Milky Way Core perfectly aligns. ⠀

I observed Comet 46P/Wirtanen on the morning of November 8th (Nov 7 in UTC) with my telescope and was so impressed by the view of the large coma in the eyepiece with a hint of teal colour that I decided to insert my Sony A7S camera and took about 100 short 15-second exposures. The stacked image is attached (with and without text and scale marker at the bottom, the coma is nearly half Moon size). The comet's tail is visible in the stacked image but I could not detect it visually. Hopefully this comet continues to impress as it gets closer to the perihelion in December.

✨ Lights in the dark ✨
Hike 2/Day 2: off trail scrambling up to Lake Cecile, tumbling down on the other side to Iceberg Lake where we set up camp and adored the darkness and the stars. It’s amazing how bright the stars are, when there’s almost no light pollution (check the reflected light on the lake) Bright Mars on the left is putting the cherry on the cake.

Photographed in moonlight, this is spring nightscape of Alborz Mountains in Iran, facing Mt Damavand with the constellation Cassiopeia standing above the peak. Damavand is a massive stratovolcano last erupted about 7000 years ago. It is just 70km away from Tehran, reaching more than 5600 meters high (~ 18,500 ft), the highest volcano in Asia and a legendary mountain in the Persian culture.
Follow me @babaktafreshi for more stories under stars.

A Perseid fireball and train; think glowing cloud of ionized debris.
This train lasted over ten minutes, and was visually massive - for scale, the Andromeda galaxy at lower left is over 6 full moons wide.

The timelapse video of the photograph in the previous post. The closeup of the Milky Way bright core, setting above Sierra Nevada peaks in California, with star clusters M6 and M7 in Scorpius and the purple-red Lagoon Nebula in Sagittarius. The center of our galaxy, home to a supermassive blackhole, is towards the bright star cloud in the view, some 25,000 light years away.

The World at Night
#Doug_Zubenel is #TWAN_photographer of this month, November 2018.
🌐 twanight.org/Zubenel
*
#DougZubenel was born Doug Brown in Lima, Ohio, in 1957. For as long as he can remember, he has always seen the outdoors as a skyscape with land below it, rather than a landscape with sky above it. His fascination with the television series’ The Outer Limits and Star Trek in the early and mid 1960’s sowed the seeds for a defining moment at 3:00 am on the morning of November 17th, 1968, in southern California. Awakened by an inexplicable compulsion to go outside, he got dressed and went out into the backyard. Looking up at the stars, Doug saw a bright meteor. A few seconds later he saw another, then another, and yet another, and whispered to himself, “What is going on?!!” He became filled with joy - of an intensity he had never known - and decided to learn all he could about the night sky. Later he discovered that what he witnessed that amazing morning was the Leonid meteor shower, just two years after the incredible meteor storm of 1966.
He received his first telescope in March of 1969, and shortly thereafter saw the landmark film 2001: A Space Odyssey. That single experience changed the way he perceived the universe, and decided that he wanted to take pictures of the night sky to share with others on cloudy nights. His first images – albeit poor ones - were B&W star trails with a Kodak instamatic camera. Doug’s family moved back to his hometown of Delphos, Ohio, in 1971, and working with his father’s Argus C-3, he began getting better star trail photos. Discovering he could remove the lens from the Argus camera, the telescope became a 1000mm telephoto lens and he recorded the partial lunar eclipse of July 25-26, 1972. And, after learning he could use his new equatorial refractor to take hand-guided piggyback photos, he had images that would soon be published in astronomy magazines. With this method, Doug recorded the amazing Comet West in March of 1976.
