Кольцеобразное солнечное затмение над Ютой APOD: 2023 November 1 Б Annular Solar Eclipse over Utah
31.10.2023

Part of the Sun disappeared earlier this month, but few people were worried. The missing part, which included the center from some locations, just went behind the Moon in what is known as an annular solar eclipse. Featured here is an eclipse sequence taken as the Moon was overtaking the rising Sun in the sky.


Хэллоуин и туманность Колдун APOD: 2023 October 31 Б Halloween and the Wizard Nebula
30.10.2023

Halloween's origin is ancient and astronomical. Since the fifth century BC, Halloween has been celebrated as a cross-quarter day, a day halfway between an equinox (equal day / equal night) and a solstice (minimum day / maximum night in the northern hemisphere).


Отражения туманности Призрак APOD: 2023 October 30 Б Reflections of the Ghost Nebula
29.10.2023

Do any shapes seem to jump out at you from this interstellar field of stars and dust? The jeweled expanse, filled with faint, starlight-reflecting clouds, drifts through the night in the royal constellation of Cepheus.


Частное лунное затмение APOD: 2023 October 29 Б A Partial Lunar Eclipse
28.10.2023

What's happened to the Moon? Within the last day, part of the Moon moved through the Earth's shadow. This happens about once or twice a year, but not every month since the Moon's orbit around the Earth is slightly tilted.


Призраки γ Кассиопеи The Ghosts of Gamma Cas
27.10.2023

Gamma Cassiopeiae shines high in northern autumn evening skies. It's the brightest spiky star in this telescopic field of view toward the constellation Cassiopeia. Gamma Cas shares the ethereal-looking scene with ghostly interstellar clouds of gas and dust, IC 59 (top left) and IC 63.


Комета Энке и Головастики Encke and the Tadpoles
26.10.2023

History's second known periodic comet is Comet Encke (2P/Encke). As it swings through the inner Solar System, Encke's orbit takes it from an aphelion, its greatest distance from the Sun, inside the orbit of Jupiter to a perihelion just inside the orbit of Mercury.


Ориониды в Тельце Orionids in Taurus
25.10.2023

History's first known periodic comet, Comet Halley (1P/Halley), returns to the inner Solar System every 76 years or so. The famous comet made its last appearance to the naked-eye in 1986. But dusty...


Исчезло за 60 секунд: закат и зеленый луч APOD: 2023 October 25 Б Gone in 60 Seconds: A Green Flash Sunset
24.10.2023

In 60 seconds, this setting Sun will turn green. Actually, the top of the Sun already appears not only green, but wavey -- along with all of its edges. The Sun itself is unchanged -- both effects are caused by looking along hot and cold layers in Earth's atmosphere.


Арп 87: сливающиеся галактики APOD: 2023 October 24 Б Arp 87: Merging Galaxies from Hubble
23.10.2023

This dance is to the death. As these two large galaxies duel, a cosmic bridge of stars, gas, and dust currently stretches over 75,000 light-years and joins them. The bridge itself is strong evidence that these two immense star systems have passed close to each other and experienced violent tides induced by mutual gravity.


Спутник Ио от космического аппарата "Юнона" APOD: 2023 October 23 Б Moon Io from Spacecraft Juno
22.10.2023

There goes another one! Volcanoes on Jupiter's moon Io keep erupting. To investigate, NASA's robotic Juno spacecraft has begun a series of visits to this very strange moon. Io is about...
