Средневековая астрономия из аббатства Мельк Medieval Astronomy from Melk Abbey
29.03.2024

Discovered by accident, this manuscript page provides graphical insight to astronomy in medieval times, before the Renaissance and the influence of Nicolaus Copernicus, Tycho de Brahe, Johannes Kepler, and Galileo. The intriguing page is from lecture notes on astronomy compiled by the monk Magister Wolfgang de Styria before the year 1490.

Globular star cluster Omega Centauri, also known as NGC 5139, is 15,000 light-years away. The cluster is packed with about 10 million stars much older than the Sun within a volume about 150 light-years in diameter.


Скопление галактик в Волосах Вероники APOD: 2024 March 27 Б The Coma Cluster of Galaxies
26.03.2024

Almost every object in the featured photograph is a galaxy. The Coma Cluster of Galaxies pictured here is one of the densest clusters known - it contains thousands of galaxies. Each of these galaxies houses billions of stars - just as our own Milky Way Galaxy does.


Ионный хвост кометы Понса-Брукса APOD: 2024 March 26 Б Comet Pons Brooks Ion Tail
25.03.2024

Comet Pons-Brooks has quite a tail to tell. First discovered in 1385, this erupting dirty snowball loops back into our inner Solar System every 71 years and, this time, is starting to put on a show for deep camera exposures.


Озвученный остаток сверхновой туманность Медуза APOD: 2024 March 25 Б Sonified: The Jellyfish Nebula Supernova Remnant
24.03.2024

What does a supernova remnant sound like? Although sound is a compression wave in matter and does not carry into empty space, interpretive sound can help listeners appreciate and understand a visual image of a supernova remnant in a new way. Recently, the Jellyfish Nebula (IC 443) has been sonified quite creatively.


Вид на Землю во время затмения APOD: 2024 March 24 Б Looking Back at an Eclipsed Earth

Место посадки "Арес-3" Ares 3 Landing Site: The Martian Revisited
22.03.2024

This close-up from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's HiRISE camera shows weathered craters and windblown deposits in southern Acidalia Planitia. A striking shade of blue in standard HiRISE image colors, to the human eye the area would probably look grey or a little reddish.


Фобос: спутник над Марсом Phobos: Moon over Mars
21.03.2024

A tiny moon with a scary name, Phobos emerges from behind the Red Planet in this timelapse sequence from the Earth-orbiting Hubble Space Telescope. Over 22 minutes the 13 separate exposures were captured near the 2016 closest approach of Mars to planet Earth. Martians have to look to the west to watch Phobos rise, though.


Триплет Льва The Leo Trio
20.03.2024

This popular group leaps into the early evening sky around the March equinox and the northern hemisphere spring. Famous as the Leo Triplet, the three magnificent galaxies found in the prominent constellation Leo gather here in one astronomical field of view.
