Astronomy Picture Of the Day (APOD)

Многократный зеленый луч на закате APOD: 2023 March 28 Б A Multiple Green Flash Sunset
27.03.2023

Yes, but can your green flash do this? A green flash at sunset is a rare event that many Sun watchers pride themselvesбon having seen.б Once thought to be a myth, a green flash is now understood to occur when the Earth's atmosphere acts like both a prism and a lens.


Северное сияние над Арктическим Хенджем APOD: 2023 March 27 Б Aurora Over Arctic Henge
26.03.2023

Reports of powerful solar flares started a seven-hour quest north to capture modern monuments against an aurora-filled sky. The peaks of iconic Arctic Henge in Raufarhцfn in northern Iceland were already aligned with the stars: some are lined up toward the exact north from one side and toward exact south from the other.


Странники APOD: 2023 March 26 Б Wanderers
25.03.2023

How far out will humanity explore? If this video's fusion of real space imagery and fictional space visualizations is on the right track, then at least the Solar System. Some of the video...


Венера и свет да Винчи Venus and the Da Vinci Glow
24.03.2023

On March 23 early evening skygazers could watch Venus and a young crescent moon, both near the western horizon. On that date Earth's brilliant evening star, faint lunar night side and slender sunlit crescent were captured in this telephoto skyscape posing alongside a church tower from Danta di Cadore, Dolomiti, Italy.

23.03.2023

Former darling of the northern sky Comet C/2022E3 (ZTF) has faded. During its closest approach to our fair planet in early February Comet ZTF was a mere 2.3 light-minutes distant. Then known as the green comet, this visitor from the remote Oort Cloud is now nearly 13.3 light-minutes away.


Спиральная галактика NGC 2841 Spiral Galaxy NGC 2841
22.03.2023

A mere 46 million light-years distant, spiral galaxy NGC 2841 can be found in planet Earth's night sky toward the northern constellation of Ursa Major. This sharp image centered on the gorgeous island universe also captures spiky foreground Milky Way stars and more distant background galaxies within the same telescopic field of view.


M31: галактика Андромеды APOD: 2023 March 22 Б M31: The Andromeda Galaxy
21.03.2023

How far can you see? The most distant object easily visible to the unaided eye is M31, the great Andromeda Galaxy, over two million light-years away. Without a telescope, even this immense spiral galaxy appears as an unremarkable, faint, nebulous cloud in the constellation Andromeda.


Темные туманности и звездообразование в Тельце APOD: 2023 March 21 Б Dark Nebulae and Star Formation in Taurus
20.03.2023

Can dust be beautiful? Yes, and it can also be useful. The Taurus molecular cloud has several bright stars, but it is the dark dust that really draws attention. The pervasive dust has waves...


M1: расширяющаяся Крабовидная туманность APOD: 2023 March 20 Б M1: The Expanding Crab Nebula
19.03.2023

Are your eyes good enough to see the Crab Nebula expand? The Crab Nebula is cataloged as M1, the first on Charles Messier's famous list of things which are not comets. In fact...


Равноденствие и  пирамида Пернатого Змея APOD: 2023 March 19 Б Equinox at the Pyramid of the Feathered Serpent
18.03.2023

To see the feathered serpent descend the Mayan pyramid requires exquisite timing. You must visit El Castillo -- in Mexico's Yucatцn Peninsula -- near an equinox. Then, during the late afternoon if the sky is clear, the pyramid's own shadows create triangles that merge into the famous illusion of a slithering viper.
