L'Ammasso della Chioma (Abell 1656) è un ammasso di galassie che si trova a circa 350 milioni di anni luce da noi, nella direzione della costellazione della Coma Berenices. 🌟✨🔭 Nella versione annotata, ho segnato solo le galassie, che sono quasi di più rispetto alle stelle 😱😱
È un ammasso molto ricco, con circa 1000 grandi galassie e migliaia di altre galassie più piccole. La maggior parte di esse sono galassie ellittiche. La più grande galassia dell'ammasso, NGC 4884, ha un diametro di 300.000 anni luce, tre volte superiore a quello della Via Lattea. 💫🌌
Abell 1656 is a cluster of galaxies that lies about 350 million light years away from us, in the direction of the constellation of Coma Berenices. In the annotated version, I only marked the galaxies, which are almost more than the stars.
It is a very rich cluster, with around 1000 large galaxies and thousands of other smaller galaxies. Most of them are elliptical galaxies. The largest cluster galaxy, NGC 4884, has a diameter of 300,000 light years, three times that of the Milky Way. .

Katherine was a NASA Mathematician who did hand done calculations that took us to the moon! .
It’s said even after NASA used computers to do calculations that they would take the data to Katherine to double check and make sure everything is correct. .
R.I.P to an amazing person and legend ❤️ .

Hace 404 años, el 26 de Febrero de 1916 la inquisición ordena la captura de Galileo Galilei quien se dejó llevar por el modelo de la teoría heliocéntrica de Copérnico que postulaba que la Tierra estaba en movimiento y el Sol estático, perfeccionó el telescopio e hizo observaciones importante como son; las fases de la Luna, estudió Júpiter y descubrió que tenía 4 Lunas que giraban a su alrededor es decir, había astros que no giraban alrededor de la Tierra, cabe destacar que Galileo vivió en una época donde se concebía un Universo finito y vacío, con una Tierra en el centro y los demás astros girando alrededor de ella, estas ideas no le parecieron a la Iglesia quien en el año 1616 censuró los libros de Copérnico y buscó desacreditar el telescopio de Galileo, puesto a que tenían sus propias ideas y tenían que ser respetadas, estos descubrimientos y postulaciones de nuevas teorías llevaron a Galileo a un juicio en el año 1633, donde lo condenaron a prisión domiciliaria hasta su muerte en 1642.
This cluster of galaxies is called Markarian's Chain, a curved string of gravitationally bound galaxies of several different types in the Virgo Supercluster of galaxies. The chain is a good example of the cosmic web, a dark mysterious structure that binds the universe together. Taken 2-22-2020
Does the moon have color? Technically yes, but the color is very subtle. By increasing the saturation of the image this reveals the small amount of colorful dust on the top layer of the moon. So the next time you look at the moon, remember there’s some color up there. Unless your color blind. #moon#moonlight#telescope#astrophotography#space#photographer

The Flaming Star Nebula (IC405) and Tadpole Nebula (IC410) in Auriga.
The tadpoles (bottom left) were hatched from the surrounding gaseous nebulae a mere 4 million years ago. They’re actually pillars of gas illuminated by the very young and hot stars in the local open cluster NGC1893. The tadpoles are actually about 10 light years long and may be in the process of hatching their own stars... The Flaming Star Nebula (top right) is illuminated by the irregular variable Star Aurigae.
Perspective in space can be a weird thing, the Flaming Star Nebula sits in the foreground a mere 1,500 light years away whilst the Tadpole Nebula is over 8 times more distant at 12,000 light years.
NGC 281, IC 11 or Sh2-184 is a bright emission nebula and part of an H II region in the northern constellation of Cassiopeia and is part of the Milky Way's Perseus Spiral Arm. This 20×30 arcmin sized nebulosity is also associated with open cluster IC 1590, several Bok globules and the multiple star, B 1. It collectively forms Sh2-184, spanning over a larger area of 40 arcmin.A recent distance from radio parallaxes of water masers at 22 GHz made during 2014 is estimated it lies 2.82±0.20 kpc. (9200 ly.) from us. Colloquially, NGC 281 is also known as the Pacman Nebula for its resemblance to the video game character.

Herkes her şeyin farkında ama herkes ölü taklidi yapıyor.
This bright cosmic cloud was sculpted by stellar winds and radiation from the hot young stars of open cluster NGC 3324. With dust clouds in silhouette against its glowing atomic gas, the pocket-shaped star-forming region actually spans about 35 light-years. It lies some 7,500 light-years away toward the nebula rich southern constellation Carina. For some, the celestial landscape of bright ridges of emission bordered by cool, obscuring dust along the right side create a recognizable face in profile. The region's popular name is the Gabriela Mistral Nebula for the Nobel Prize winning Chilean poet. What do you think, can you see her face?

It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. .

The Crescent Nebula (NGC 6888) seems to swim through the upper part of this region of space that features lots of glowing hydrogen. Look carefully about midway between the Crescent and the bottom of the image for the much fainter Soap Bubble Nebula.
Bellerophon, Güneşe çok yakın olan bir gezegendir. Bunu keşfetmek büyük bir mucize. Sorun şu ki, Dünya'dan bu kadar uzak gezegenleri göremiyoruz. Komşu yıldızların parlaklığı yüzünden karanlık duruyorlar. Ancak gezegenlerin bu yıldızlar üzerinde küçük bir çekim kuvveti var. Eğer bu küçük hareketleri milyonlarca kilometre öteden ölçersek varlıklarını kanıtlayabiliriz. Bellerophon'u geçen yüzyılın 90'larında bu şekilde keşfettik. Diğer gezegenlerin keşfine kapı açtı. -

This Hubble image of the Andromeda galaxy(M31) is the biggest Hubble image ever released and shows over 100 million stars and thousands of star clusters embedded in a section of the galaxy's pancake-shaped disc stretching across over 40 000 light-years

Remember the stunning image of a black hole that went around the world some months back? That was the result of Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI), where telescopes from around the world are combined to effectively make one gigantic telescope 😲 This week several EU ARC staff learned how to process @alma.observatory data for VLBI at the Lorentz Center in Leiden, The Netherlands. The highlight so far was making a first image of M87 - the galaxy with the famous black hole! 🤩🤩🤩

Los viajes son como los atardeceres, si esperas demasiado te los pierdes.
This week, we'll be looking at star clusters, and why they are amongst the jewels of our night skies.
Come down, and find out what open and globular clusters are, and what makes Omega Centauri so special. We'll also be discussing how stars evolve and interact within clusters, and as always, there's an observation session afterwards! See you 21 Feb/Fri, at YIH Training Room 2, 7 pm! — photo: the open cluster pleiades, photographed 200214

This week, our topic will be Dead Stars: what occupies the graveyards of the night sky? Find out why weird things like black holes, magnetars and novae are much more eerie than any haunted house you might visit, and how they got there in the first place! The session will be conducted at the YIH Training Room 2, at 7 pm today, 14 Feb! — photo: orion nebula and surroundings, taken 200207
