Тени Земли APOD: 2023 May 9 Б Shadows of Earth
8.05.2023

Can you find two Earth shadows in today's image? It's a bit tricky. To find the first shadow, observe that the top part of the atmosphere appears pink and the lower part appears blue. This is because the top half is exposed to direct sunlight, while the lower part is not.

Сумерки как цветок Twilight in a Flower
5.05.2023

Transformed into the petals of a flower, 16 exposures show the passage of day into night in this creative timelapse skyscape. Start at the top and move counterclockwise to follow consecutive moments as the twilight sky turns an ever darker blue and night blossoms.

Центавр А: необычный звездный остров APOD: 2023 May 3 Б Centaurus A: A Peculiar Island of Stars
2.05.2023

Galaxies are fascinating. In galaxies, gravity alone holds together massive collections of stars, dust, interstellar gas, stellar remnants and dark matter. Pictured is NGC 5128, better known as Centaurus A. Cen A is the fifth brightest galaxy on the sky and is located at a distance of about 12 million light years from Earth.


Холмы с плоскими камнями на Марсе APOD: 2023 May 2 Б Flat Rock Hills on Mars
1.05.2023

Why are there so many flat rocks on Mars? Some views of plains and hills on Mars show many rocks that are unusually flat when compared to rocks on Earth. One reason for this is a process that is common to both Mars and Earth: erosion.
