Astronomy Picture Of the Day (APOD)

Крест на облаках APOD: 2024 April 23 Б Contrail Shadow X
22.04.2024

What created this giant X in the clouds? It was the shadow of contrails illuminated from below. When airplanes fly, humid engine exhaust may form water droplets that might freeze in Earth's cold upper atmosphere. These persistent streams of water and ice scatter light from the Sun above and so appear bright from below.


Луна и кольца из дыма над горой Этна APOD: 2024 April 22 Б Moon and Smoke Rings from Mt Etna
21.04.2024

Yes, but can your volcano do this? To the surprise of some, Mt. Etna emits, on occasion, smoke rings. Technically known as vortex rings, the walls of the volcano slightly slow the outside of emitted smoke puffs, causing the inside gas to move faster.


Перийовий 16: пролетая над Юпитером APOD: 2024 April 21 Б Perijove 16: Passing Jupiter
20.04.2024

Watch Juno zoom past Jupiter. NASA's robotic spacecraft Juno is continuing on its now month-long, highly-elongated orbits around our Solar System's largest planet. The featured video is from perijove 16, the sixteenth time that Juno passed near Jupiter since it arrived in mid-2016.


Бриллианты на небе Diamonds in the Sky
19.04.2024

When the dark shadow of the Moon raced across North America on April 8, sky watchers along the shadow's narrow central path were treated to a total solar eclipse. During the New Moon's shadow play diamonds glistened twice in the eclipse-darkened skies.


Большая туманность Киля The Great Carina Nebula
18.04.2024

A jewel of the southern sky, the Great Carina Nebula is more modestly known as NGC 3372. One of our Galaxy's largest star forming regions, it spans over 300 light-years. Like the smaller, more northerly Great Orion Nebula, the Carina Nebula is easily visible to the unaided eye.


Лицом к NGC 1232 Facing NGC 1232
17.04.2024

From our vantage point in the Milky Way Galaxy, we see NGC 1232 face-on. Nearly 200,000 light-years across, the big, beautiful spiral galaxy is located some 47 million light-years away in the flowing southern constellation of Eridanus. This sharp, multi-color, telescopic image of NGC 1232 includes remarkable details of the distant island universe.


Полное затмение и кометы APOD: 2024 April 17 Б Total Eclipse and Comets
16.04.2024

Not one, but two comets appeared near the Sun during last week's total solar eclipse. The expected comet was Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks, but it was disappointingly dimmer than many had hoped. However, relatively unknown Comet SOHO-5008 also appeared in long duration camera exposures.


Волокна остатка сверхновой в Парусах APOD: 2024 April 16 Б Filaments of the Vela Supernova Remnant
15.04.2024

The explosion is over, but the consequences continue. About eleven thousand years ago, a star in the constellation of Vela could be seen to explode, creating a strange point of light briefly visible to humans living near the beginning of recorded history.


Галактика Сигара от телескопов "Хаббл" и "Джеймс Вебб" APOD: 2024 April 15 Б The Cigar Galaxy from Hubble and Webb
14.04.2024

Something strange happened to this galaxy, but what? Known as the Cigar Galaxy and cataloged as M82, red glowing gas and dust are being cast out from the center. Although this starburst galaxy...


Как заканчивается полное солнечное затмение APOD: 2024 April 14 Б How a Total Solar Eclipse Ended
13.04.2024

How does a total solar eclipse end? Yes, the Moon moves out from fully blocking the Sun, but in the first few seconds of transition, interesting things appear. The first is called a diamond ring.
